About me

I am a personal and spiritual development coach. I work with people who are experiencing overwhelm, crisis or troubled times, or who are feeling stuck in their lives. I help my clients to find meaning, purpose, motivation and resilience, using a warm, grounded and gentle approach.

Here are some examples of issues we may explore:

  • unblocking creativity
  • discovering purpose
  • developing one’s voice
  • handling transitions
  • trusting oneself
  • coping with crisis
