About me

Do you want to turn happiness into a habit? Had enough of that negative voice in your head telling you ‘you can’t or ‘you shouldn’t’? Fed up of that dreaded Sunday evening feeling? I'll help you to shift your mindset and take the action you need to create a balanced life that fills you with passion, purpose and self-belief. I will show you how to find happiness that sticks and how to use it to fuel your success.

I work with people who want to discover, develop and become their best self. Because when you become your best self you live the life you want. You learn how to create your own happiness. You make decisions based on a foundation of self-belief, not fear. You live life with purpose and energy. And you define what you want in life and go get it!

Drawing on effective coaching tools & techniques, neuroscience, positive psychology, the best of NLP, CBT, hypnotherapy and guided relaxation, I give you the space, knowledge, guidance and 'get up and go' to discover your best self and live a life that energises you.

My coaching is for you if you want to…

  • Kill self doubt by becoming more confident in who you are.
  • Get clear on what you want in your life and career, and how to get it.
  • Eliminate stress and anxiety by ditching your negative thinking.
  • Replace your bad habits with good ones so you can achieve more in less time, and leave work earlier to go and enjoy the rest of your life.
  • Love yourself so you can let others love you too.
  • Design and create a lifestyle that works for your body and mind.

About me

I'm a certified coach (HumanTechnics), an avid researcher, a positive psychology believer and a lifelong personal development advocate. The first few chapters of my personal development journey were bumpy. Yep, it wasn't pretty - low mood, anxiety, catastrophic thinking - I was living a life on a foundation of fear, listening to external expectations and internal judgement.

To the outside world I built a 'successful' career in the advertising industry - climbing the ladder fast, taking on strategic, senior leadership positions in London advertising agencies and later leading marketing departments and consultancies in Bristol. How I felt about my life was buried by what I thought my life looked like - how I was living up to expectations.

It was as I was coaching one of my team that the quote "the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results" came up - and it hit me like a smack in the face. I'd had enough of feeling that my life didn't fit me on the inside. I decided there and then to make some brave decisions to shift what I was doing  - and I discovered that I had the power in me to listen to myself, cut out the chatter, be brave and build the life and the me that I wanted. I was determined to become my best self.

So I left my corporate marketing career that I'd spent a decade building. I took with me my instinct, my passion, my strengthened inner belief and my ability and joy in coaching, mentoring and motivating all the teams I've managed...and I set myself the mission to help as many people as possible to discover, explore and become their best selves. Clear, calm, confident and fulfilled.

I've picked up qualifications, knowledge, research, techniques, tools, exercises and buckets full of passion along the way, all of which I draw on and share in my sessions. I enjoy structured thought, with a measure of science and a good sprinkle of intuition and emotional intelligence... and I'd say that's a pretty good signpost for what our sessions will be filled with.

Whatever your dreams, goals and personal obstacles, we'll work together to cut through the clutter, focus on your future and make positive change that sticks.

If you want to discover your best self, I'd love to hear from you. Get in touch for a chat, to share your journey or to book your free consultation.

Looking forward to chatting with you soon,

You can come and see me face to face in central Bristol if you're local - or I offer FaceTime sessions if you're further afield.

Free initial consultation

We'll meet for an initial 30-minute (free, no obligation) consultation session. It's an opportunity for us to chat through what you're wanting to achieve, how the coaching process can work and to discuss any questions you may have. We can then decide if it's a good fit and something you'd like to go ahead with.


Sessions are £60 and last for an hour.

Further information

Our sessions will be in my coaching rooms in central Bristol (just off Old Market roundabout) - there's free parking and bike racks for those of you who prefer your own steam!
