About me

Imagine if you could get really clear on what you wanted and increase your impact in your professional and personal life.

I support passionate people who:

  • have a successful career but feel stuck and unfulfilled
  • know that something is missing and want to jump into a life they have always dreamed of
  • want to get clear on their goals and intentions
  • want to get clear on their own or their teams personal development

Sound familiar?

My vision is to help you feel less overwhelmed and more confident about your next steps, because you have greater clarity over your decision making.

My coaching helps bring calm, clarity and perspective into your life helping you to rediscover your inner confidence and help you towards getting what you want out of life.

My promise

If this sounds like you and you are serious about taking your personal or professional life forward, then I'm here to help. It would be great to work with you, to help you find a strategy that is aligned to your goals and your values and helps you to move forward through whatever has been holding you back.

A bit about me:

I have a background in Automotive, Banking and Financial sales and have coached for the last 15+ years.

I bake, I cook, I love to read. I'm a Triathlete. I make my own gin and love to collect and drink other peoples.

I’ve been married, divorced, widowed, been made redundant and started my own business.

What all of this has taught me is that life is short and you need to get out there to get what you want!
