About me

There is no area of life that is not enhanced through intelligent and empathic exploration. I am a qualified life coach with a passion for facilitating and enhancing my clients' well-being, success and sense of fulfilment in all aspects of their lives. My priority is to help individuals realise their potential in the most authentic way possible by investigating and resolving areas of confusion, doubt and stagnation. In doing so, clients can develop a much more powerful sense of their own needs and capacities, with potentially life-changing results.

I have always been fascinated and inspired by people - by what makes us tick, and how we can maximise our contentment, effectiveness and engagement with this complex and challenging world. Alongside my PhD studies and training in therapy and coaching, this curiosity has led me to explore meditation and various spiritual disciplines. Along the way I also found myself becoming a passionate advocate for enhancing personal growth and self-care in the corporate environment.

The forms of coaching I offer include:

  • Health and well-being coaching
  • Personal coaching
  • Life and career transition coaching
  • Executive and business coaching
  • Mindfulness coaching
  • Motivational coaching

Online coaching via Skype and FaceTime, and in person in Exeter.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • BA Hons (First)
  • MA (Distinction)
  • PhD
  • Advanced diploma in life skills coaching (Distinction)

I offer a completely personalised coaching service, with a high degree of flexibility. It is often the case that priorities shift as the coaching process evolves; this is something I pay close attention to, ensuring the work we do together remains fresh and relevant at all times. I have experience working with people in a wide variety of contexts, from the personal, relational and creative to the professional and organisational. In all instances, my focus remains on maximising my clients' personal growth and overall satisfaction. The exact form that takes is up to you the client, but I will be with you every step of the way.
