About me

I am a professional life coach with extensive experience in the public, private and voluntary sectors.  I provide a supportive, open-minded and accepting environment in which to explore barriers to personal and professional fulfilment.  Using a variety of proven tools and techniques, I can help enable clients to become the best versions of themselves.

I have a particular interest in the following areas:

  • Managing stress, anxiety and depression
  • Living with adoption or fostering
  • Identifying and achieving life goals
  • Building confidence
  • Returning to work

If you feel that coaching could help you, or if you’d like to find out more, get in touch.  Together, we’ll work to develop strategies to move from surviving to thriving.

Training, qualifications & experience

I work with people from all sectors, at all levels and of all ages in their quest to become better versions of themselves.

I have qualifications in the following:

  • Transformative Life Coach
  • NLP Practitioner
  • Master’s Degree in Learning and Teaching
  • Reiki Master/Teacher

I am also trained in EFT and currently studying Integrated Psychotherapeutic Studies and Hypnotherapy.

I offer all my new clients a free telephone consultation/discovery session during which we will explore what you want to get out of coaching with me and define a suitable package.
