I work with women in mid-life to help them navigate life changes, work through the challenges different life roles can create, and achieve lives that feel true and authentic.
Change happens...and when it is not purposely sought, it can be a real challenge. Working with me as your coach, you can explore your thoughts and feelings in a safe space, gain clarity about what you really want, and learn some essential tools and techniques to achieve the success you desire.
Many of my clients are successful women from their mid-40s. For most, career or business is an important facet of their lives. There is a familiar cycle which many of them describe to me when I first meet them. They have become stuck in a cycle and they may feel driven, dizzy, out of control or unhappy. They may simply feel bored, stuck, tired, with a sense that life is passing them by, or that they have lost sight of what is important to them. Perhaps they don't really feel in touch with themselves in the way they did previously. The phrase 'work/life balance' doesn't begin to cover it.
Does any of this seem familiar to you?
Business or work responsibilities become more challenging at the same time you are experiencing health issues linked to the menopause. Relationship problems, family issues with your children and/or parents impact on your work, and increased levels of stress result in some health challenges which in turn impact on your work performance and relationships. Without knowing how, life suddenly seems very different from what you planned or expected. Your level of confidence and self belief can take a huge battering.
As your coach, I will walk alongside you on the journey as you face your challenges, helping and supporting you, and also teaching you the skills to listen deeply to your own intuitive sense, so that you can achieve more than you dreamed would be possible.
Whatever your starting point, I can help you navigate your way ahead, so email me today, and we can start with a conversation about where you are and where you want to be.

Areas of coaching I deal with
Other areas of coaching I deal with
I specialise in working with mature women - from 40s on - who are experiencing change and who want to take a more active role in shaping the life they want. Experience of change during this phase of life can be complex and multifaceted, so the coaching process can touch on many of these areas, and more. For many, these years of growing maturity also herald an awakening to a larger experience of life, its meaning and purpose, which encompasses spirituality in its broadest sense, and this is a fundamental element of my work.
I am equally comfortable working on practical business strategies and the deeper levels of coaching appropriate to life crises and major transitions. My strength is in supporting the balance between these in the coaching relationship.

Everyone's journey is different. When we have spoken together, I will have a better idea of how specifically I can help you. There are a number of options including programmes from 6-10 sessions and individual breakthrough sessions.
After we have talked, I'll send you an email planning a way forward, including easy ways to pay. For instance funding may be available to help you with business or professional issues. Then it's up to you to take the next step to begin to address the changes you need to make to bring you the life you want and deserve.
