About me

Through 1:1 coaching sessions, I support individuals to find increased fulfilment, meaning and enjoyment in work and life. Coaching sessions provide the space and support to explore, to reflect, to achieve our aspirations, and feel better!

Coaching sessions help to:

  • Identify what matters most to you
  • Where change is needed
  • Develop strategies for overcoming challenges
  • Recognise and utilise your unique potential and resources
  • Provide a step by step approach to keep on track

Many of us feel at our best when we are connected with nature which is why coaching while walking in the lovely green spaces of Oxford can be particularly effective, opening up new horizons and allowing us to see our lives with a different perspective and renewed energy. I offer walking coaching while adhering to social distancing rules as well as skype and phone.

Phone and Skype coaching also offered.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a life coach's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the life coach to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access Unspecified

I offer online coaching. I also offer walk and coach outside in the fresh air of Oxford's beautiful and inspiring parks.


Daytime, evenings and Saturdays.
