About me

I often see individuals who want more out of life but aren't sure what. People who may feel stuck and can't see a way ahead or don't know what path to take. I also see those who have finished counselling and are thinking  "now what?"

How can coaching help?

Together we will look at what life is like now and potentially what life looks like in the future, what changes you wish to make and how. While it may seem like the practicalities in life are what needs work, coaching also helps you with things like confidence, self-awareness, self-esteem, coping strategies and building resilience, even when you think you are all the above and more. We work together but you lead the way.

I will not advise you, I will not judge you nor will I tell you what to do. What I will do is to help you gain insight into the choices you have available to improve your life and whether or not they are the right choices for you.  

I work integratively incorporating different theories to further my knowledge of clients as my counselling theory qualification informs my coaching practice. 

I am autistic and I also have ADHD. I see a lot of neurodiverse clients and also work with individuals where neurodiversity is not in their lives.  

I'm a parent to a now grown-up son who is autistic as well as ADHD and PDA and to say I am proud of him is a serious understatement! 

I also specialise in menopause coaching having completed the training that is recommended for GP's and I understand all too well how menopause can affect all aspects of life. 

Life coaching really is for everyone. All you need to decide is whether or not I am the right coach for you!!

Training, qualifications & experience

I come from a background in family support and am passionate about helping others. I have been a volunteer director at a mental health charity for 5 years and understand how important emotional health and wellbeing is.  

I set up and, for 3 years, ran my local branch of a national charity that supports autistic individuals and their families. I understand the challenges we face as individuals, parents, partners and employees.  I know what it is like to be a neurodiverse individual in a neurotypical world. 

I gained my initial life coaching qualification and have been working as a life coach (and volunteer director) ever since.  I have over 600 client hours and work hard to complete at least 30 hours of continuous professional development each year to benefit my clients and further enhance my practice.
