About me

I help professionals in their 30s, 40s and 50s reinvent their career to find work they love with purpose, balance and growth.

One Monday morning a few years ago, I suddenly realised something had to change. My health was suffering, and fulfilling work seemed like fake news. Precious time with my partner and children was trickling away in trains and meeting rooms. And I realised I’d always fallen into things and never actually taken charge of my own career direction. That just wasn’t good enough.

So I dug deep and found what had always driven me: helping others rise through dilemma and challenge to find richness and meaning in life. I took rigorous, internationally respected qualifications and became a career coach, to help others stuck at the same crossroads.

Are you considering a new path? Here’s how to make that leap.

  • Your career takes up most of your life – so make work a joy
  • Launch a new career you love – and still pay the bills
  • Find true balance and spend your time well
  • Get out before you burn out
  • Do what you love, even if you don’t have relevant experience
  • Finally find the confidence to achieve your potential

How I can help you:

I often work with people who’ve tried career coaching or similar services before and come away dissatisfied. My approach is different. We move on from these outdated ‘matching’ approaches and focus on meaningful, personalised choices and real-world outcomes to find you a new career you love.

A bespoke, 1-2-1 service to make work a joy again. Gain self-awareness, know what’s out there and what would suit you, understand career planning and decision making, and have confidence in your forward direction.

1-2-1 Workshops and Deep Dives

In addition to my long-term career change services, I help professionals get unstuck and get a plan in 2 hours or less. Choose from:

  • The Career Change Catalyzer
  • Deep Dive: Imposter Syndrome
  • Deep Dive: Personal Branding for Career Development
  • CV, Cover Letter & LinkedIn Optimisation Workshop

Training, qualifications & experience

I’m a qualified career coach with dual-accredited training and CPD. I’m a member of the International Coach Federation and the European Mentoring and Coaching Council, and I have degrees from Cambridge University and Durham University.

When I'm not coaching and consulting I'm being ridden like a horse by my two little girls, making ice cream, or playing the piano (badly).


Free initial online session

Additional information

I don’t advertised fixed fees. Firstly, my service is tailored to you. Secondly, coaching is an investment in your future, so a decision based mainly on cost is unlikely to lead to a good result.

My rates are competitive, and I offer a combination of features you won’t find elsewhere. There are no hidden costs. I will be clear and upfront about my fee during our free consultation. I never pressurise or hard sell.
