About me

"You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to surf." - Jon Kabat-Zinn

Dear reader & visitor of my profile,

You have arrived here because some of the following might apply to you:

  • Are you a woman 40+? Are you struggling with the demands, challenges and changes that midlife throws at you? Midlife doesn't have to be a crisis.
  • Are you a teacher who works long hours, constantly feels the pressure and fears burnout? Do you finally want to 'add value' to yourself whilst adding value to your students?
  • Are you a young person (18+) who is finding the demands of studying and life as a young person challenging? You feel that the pressure of it all gets too much and you find it difficult to cope and enjoy life.

You are struggling with the changes or challenges in life, you might feel stuck, you are at a crossroads in your life and don’t know where to go or are not sure about your options.

You feel life happens to you and that you have no or little control over what happens right now in your life. You find it difficult to accept things as they are.

You might have to deal with issues like redundancy, upcoming retirement, relationship problems, health issues, burnout, children leaving home and the fear of the empty nest, worries about the future, having caring responsibilities to name just a few. You might feel stressed and overwhelmed. Life feels like an uphill battle at the moment.

The issues you are dealing with now might influence your mental and emotional wellbeing. They might make you feel lost and alone. You might ask yourself questions like “Why me?”, “Is that all life has to offer?”. And you wish that there was more to life than what you are experiencing at the moment. There is more to life, a lot more.

You want to feel whole again, you want to have a more fulfilling and happy life. Who says you can’t?

You are on this website reading this because you would like to change something in your life, but you would like someone to accompany you on your journey.

You can partner with a coach who is there for you, and who has gone through the “university of life” and understands your challenges. I will be your guide, and together we navigate the changes and challenges that appear along your journey. Working together you can expect to:

- Define your goals and what you really want in your life

- Explore the person you are and grow your confidence

- Identify and remove any obstacles

- Discover your inner resources

- Find solutions and answers that help you to become unstuck, gain clarity and enable you to move forward

What you're going through is challenging, and I want you to know you're not alone. I have travelled on a road full of obstacles myself. I have experienced dark times when depression took over my life, felt emotionally overwhelmed and lost touch with what was important in life. I prioritised my work over everything else so that I didn’t have to face my problems. There were times when I was asking myself questions like: "Is that it?", "What am I doing, what is my purpose?" and most importantly "Who am I?". I realised that I had lost touch with myself. Then I went through redundancy, to top it all. On this journey I learned to see stumbling blocks as opportunities and as wake-up calls, and I have found what makes me really happy. This led me to rediscover my real purpose, and to where I am now – I have truly found my calling.

I started counselling and coaching because throughout my career, working with people and helping them grow has always been my passion. I enjoy combining my experience as a coach and counsellor, which enables me to relate better to my clients' inner world through a deeper understanding of psychology. That means I can provide a more holistic approach for my clients.

I love working with people and help them get excited about what is possible in life. My passion is empowering my clients to become mentally and emotionally healthier, happier and feel more fulfilled and confident in their lives.

I have made it my mission to help clients identify and achieve their goals and lead a more meaningful and content life. I want them to become the best version of THEMSELVES. I believe that the essence of achieving the life we want is about finding out who we are and letting go of everything that doesn't serve us anymore. That allows us to connect to what we want, and we start trusting ourselves in the process. Coaching is the road to closing that gap between the present and the future.

On this insightful journey, I help my clients create results they are proud of, and that change their lives for the better.

What is different about my way of coaching?

I sometimes call myself a counselling coach as I can draw from both approaches, which is helpful when, whilst working with clients, we discover some issues that would be normally dealt with in counselling.

I also have a creative and mindful approach to coaching – using an eclectic selection of tools and techniques to give you a holistic coaching experience.

See me as your personal development trainer that helps you gain more clarity, focus and purpose. Working with a coach is an investment in yourself and a commitment to change.

Do the following questions resonate with you?

Do you simply struggle going through life (mentally, emotionally)?

Do you find it difficult to keep the balance between your needs and the needs of others?

Do you feel you have lost that sense of purpose?

Do you feel your relationships go through challenging times?

Have you lost touch with yourself?

Do you feel the challenges of facing a new chapter in your life (e.g. empty nest, retirement, redundancy, next step in education)

Do you feel that there is something missing in your life?

Is there something you need to leave behind / let go of to be able to move forward?

Do you want to make changes in your life, but don't know how to go about it?

Have you answered 'yes' to any of the questions? Then Life Coaching might be a worthwhile investment in yourself. Making yourself happy first means you can have a positive impact on everyone around you.

If a life coach's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the life coach to discuss the options available.
