About me

I am a Coach, Mentor and Author based in Christchurch, Dorset. With many years of successful Coaching in my own private practice and the NHS, I am passionate about empowering all my clients to create the life they truly want. 

I offer:

  • Neurodiversity Coaching
  • Life Coaching
  • Health and Wellbeing Coaching

My gentle and holistic coaching style reflects the natural empathy that I have with all people, ensuring each client’s needs are met with a personalised and bespoke approach, focusing on what’s most important to the individual. 

These are just a few of the areas that people come to me for Coaching;

  • Neurodiversity Coaching - ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Autism
  • Menopause
  • Managing Anxiety
  • Increasing Confidence 
  • Health and Wellbeing 
  • Creating a work - life balance
  • Grief, including the loss of a beloved pet

Why my Coaching and Mentoring Service is Unique

I have interviewed some of the most successful and inspiring role models in the U.K. including A list celebrities and business leaders, in order to understand what their Winning Formulas to Success are in their careers. From Sir Richard Branson, Sir Tom Jones, Kelly Hoppen and James Martin to name just a few, who shared their Winning Formulas to Success with me to write my book Dyslexia and Success: The Winning Formulas. Combining these with the NLP training I had with the co-creator of NLP, Dr Richard Bandler, and the Mental Health and Wellbeing Coaching work that I do with the NHS, has enabled me to provide a unique Coaching and Mentoring service.

In our 1:1 coaching sessions, clients are able to;

  • Set goals
  • Work through any blocks and limitations that may have been holding them back until now  
  • Create new habits to succeed in reaching their goals and feel amazingly optimistic about the future 

You can choose to make the change that you have been seeking now

Whether it’s for your business, personal growth or manifesting your ambitions. I look forward to speaking to you about how we can personalise your Coaching sessions to achieve your goals and create the AMAZING life you deserve.
