About me

It is said that life is a rollercoaster - and I wholeheartedly agree. As we go through life we face all sorts of challenges, large and small, some trivial and others life-changing. How we cope with these ups and downs is very much determined by our own personal perceptions and core beliefs. It can also change the direction that our lives take, for better or worse; I can help you find clarity and choose the best path for you.

Deep down, the majority of us are simply striving for a healthy, peaceful existence - maybe with a dash of excitement thrown in for good measure! Modern life is chaotic and rushes by so quickly that we can often lose sight of ourselves and what we really want. We can feel ‘stuck’ or in limbo - unable to move forward productively or assertively. If this resonates with you, then you may well benefit from my guidance.

Have you found your true potential yet?

Reaching your true potential does not simply happen. You first need to clearly identify your goals and remain focused on your vision and before taking that leap of faith to achieve them. This is not at the expense of those around you - quite the opposite. When you feel happier and fulfilled, this will ripple out and others will begin to feel the same. Everyone wins!

Each of us is unique, with our own set of skills and abilities - however somehow, most of us do not realise just how capable we are. This can be attributed to our own self belief, self esteem and core values, which have been instilled in us from a young age. The many varied experiences in life, positive and negative, undoubtedly shape us. This can have a huge influence on our mindset which, in turn, has an impact upon the way we view our life and our capacity to live assertively. With my guidance you will learn not to dwell on the past, and accept all experiences in life and move on, while still remaining true to yourself.

How can I help you to achieve your goals?

I am your personal cheerleader, on your personal journey. I am not here to tell you what to do, but will guide and encourage you toward the path that you want to take. Many of us start off with good intentions when it comes to accomplishing a life goal, whether it be career development, personal development, increasing self confidence or self esteem, weight loss, financial stability, relationships, divorce or any one of an infinite number of objectives. The reality is that you will be unable to complete these goals or maintain their benefits, if you do not have the right support and encouragement in place to keep you motivated along the way.

My role as a personal development life coach is to empower and help you find the resilience and tenacity to build the stepping stones towards consistently achieving what you want in life. You will learn where your strengths lie, feel able to move forward and find the determination and motivation to accomplish whatever you want to, in your life, career and relationships.

I can help in so many areas in life including:

  • Achieving personal goals
  • General well being
  • Confidence
  • Career change in circumstances/seeking promotion
  • Relationship (romantic, family, friendships)
  • 'Empty nest' syndrome
  • Rediscovering your true self
  • Silencing negative self talk
  • Self worth / self esteem
  • Positive mindset
  • Weight control
  • Reducing stress
  • Positive mindset

Why choose me to be your coach?

I became passionate about life coaching in the 5 years that followed a very turbulent period in my own life. Those life experiences and a desire to help those who have found themselves in difficult situations, ultimately led me along this path. My background has given me an insight into my varied clients’ mindsets and shaped my empathetic and compassionate, yet firm approach to life coaching. By utilising the different tools and techniques gained through my courses, reading and experience, I help people feel empowered within and ready to face adversity as well as recognise and celebrate triumphs.

I became a qualified Life Coach as well as a Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) practitioner in 2016. NLP is a technique that resolves issues without dissecting them, by focusing on finding the outcome you desire. I regularly use NLP in coaching sessions as it helps you to feel more in control of your mind, and consequently your life. With NLP coaching you learn new behaviours that enable you to communicate more effectively and increase your self awareness.

Be the masters or mistress of your own destiny and learn how to unlock your true potential.

Further information

Coaching supports and empowers you in order for you to reach personal and professional goals. It enables you to achieve all that you want from life by assisting you in moving where you presently are in life to where you want to be.

Coaching gives you the opportunity to establish the skills required in order to achieve the desired results when facing challenging situations.

Coaching does not deal with psychological distress and should not be confused with counselling. Coaching helps you through the stepping stones on the journey in order to reach your goal.

Entering into a coaching relationship you must be ready to make changes in your life. For coaching to be effective it is essential for you to make a commitment to take an active part in the process. This will include identifying your own goals and desired outcomes and there will be some actions to complete in your own time between sessions.

Although I will offer you a 100% commitment to your personal growth and development you will be responsible for creating your own outcomes.

Coaching is most effective when both parties are honest and straightforward in their communication.

Our work together remains confidential and that all content discussed will not be disclosed to any third parties.

Sessions are offered face to face, telephone or Face Time.
