About me

Inner confidence is the best way to create massive shifts so that it shines out - Coaching gets you there very quickly.

Relationships are the most important aspect of our lives. Every interaction with another is a relationship. bringing us connection, love, comfort, meaning, guidance, support, friendship and happiness.

Great relationships are something we all strive for and when they break down it causes seemingly unsurmountable stress, pressure, worry and anxiety.

If a connection isn't fulfilling your expectations, it affects every area of your life. If your issues aren't dealt with resentments develop, resulting in feeling there is no way out and wondering how to make a change for everyone involved.

I offer a different approach to the problems that arise within any relationship. The most important relationship primarily is a relationship with yourself.

I began Personal Development in 2013 after realising my life had to seriously change. I was in a painfully destructive marriage - I met my ex-husband when I was 17 and stayed for 27 years.  My children now 22 and 24 suffered as a result and staying for their benefit was un-resourceful to both myself and them. Life was a desperate existence. Negatively impacting everyone involved- financially trapped and reliant on another for my security, I was lost, disappointed and scared.

It took courage, persistence and was honestly the greatest challenge, facing up to myself and owning up to my life.  Selling the family home, staying with friends for almost a year, leaving my children with their Dad while I faced the enormous challenge of standing on my own two feet. I started my own businesses, began my personal coaching journey which helped me transform the magnitude of my experiences, and embarking on some lifelong dreams like running the London Marathon, walking the Great Wall of China, going to an Ashram among some other quite life enhancing experiences. Raising awareness and funds for domestic abuse charities which totally uplifted my spirits.

Making my own decisions was a completely new and daunting experience - now I had the freedom and knowledge to financially, emotionally and spiritually support the life I'd always dreamed of.

I'm so proud of the fact that just after a year of leaving I was nominated for and won runner up of the year in the Kent Women in Business, Entrepreneur of the Year Award.

I love that I now lead others to make their dreams a reality via my skills and experience- it completely fills my heart.

Nothing changes unless you do.

I'm so grateful that I made the choice to make the hardest decision of my life, investing financially and emotionally in a future path that was unknown to me.  I finally woke up to the possibilities that everyone deserves to live life to the fullest.

By working together via zoom we will get the warm, friendly yet professional face to face interactions. With weekly sessions to ensure consistency, clarity and direction.

Please understand this can be a challenging journey with highs and lows. It will give you the ability to look at life through a different perspective and shine a light on what is holding you back while guiding you to make better choices.  Self love is a key component in my coaching and Im looking forward to helping you to create a magical life.

You will feel empowered, confident and have a clearer understanding of who you are and how YOU can change your life for the better.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified NLP master practitioner. I have studied transactional analysis, mindset and personal development which led me to my greatest passion - Masculine and Feminine polarity within relationships.

I have worked alongside the amazing Tony Robbins and Dr John De Martini. I am committed to my continued personal growth and so have my own Life and relationship Coach to keep upscaling my skills.

Awareness is the first step to change and all change comes from inspiration or desperation.

People connect for a reason, so if you feel in alignment with my values I know we will be a great fit to benefit your life positively. Together we will embark on a journey of self discovery, opening doors for you where you may have felt only walls. The key is learning to love yourself, to help you find the person you truly are and giving you the skills required to create the life and relationships you desire.

Additional information


A free 45 minute consultation will determine our alignment.

I will then tailor a package that suits your needs.

Beneficial Change will only work with a commitment of 6 weeks.

I offer 3 and 6 month alternatives for a specialist relationship programme.

This is group coaching. Personally I find it a wonderful alternative to share and grow with others seeking the same knowledge to learn together. It is fully immersive and has a massive impact for total transformation.  On this course we study relationships in depth. Self love and of course Masculine and Feminine polarity; how it impacts your connections and how to create the relationships of your dreams within a safe confidential environment.
