About me

What’s bothering you?

·       Decisions?

·       Lack of motivation?

·       Negative thoughts and recurring negative patterns of behaving?

·       Overcrowded head, full of plans but no action?

·       Lack of zest?

·       Long term undermining of yourself?

·       Zero confidence?

·       In need of a mental declutter?

Coaching can help! I ask my clients to look forward but acknowledge the past. I ask challenging questions which can uproot long term behaviour and thought patterns in a re-energising and positive way. I offer candid and objective reflection on what’s going on. Then…you set the new goals.

Walking and talking outside brings a fresh perspective to coaching- meet me on the Downs! (I do have an office too if that’s not for you.)


N.L.P. In my view = How are you doing what you are doing and is it working?

What do you believe about to be true about yourself. How does it help you (or not)?

Coach, trainer and facilitator. Based in Bristol with a love of coaching outdoors. Always (always!) asking 'How are you doing what you are doing and is it working?'  I have seen first hand the powerful impact of good well-being and self-esteem. I love seeing the impact of coaching on my clients, giving them space and time to think and witnessing what happens when you give yourself 'permission' to go ahead.

My coaching is underpinned by powerful NLP techniques and I also draw on a range of other strategies; from the wise words of James Clear to the thoughts and ideas contained in Ikigai (Hector Garcia) to Paulo Coehlo, Jenny Mosely and Brené Brown, Seth Godin and the witty and honest Tim Urban.

Other areas of coaching I deal with

Having worked overseas for 16 years I am very familiar with the issues surrounding re-location to another country and can offer coaching, allowing you to make the transition as smooth as possible.
