About me

Integral Eye Movement Therapy (IEMT), Metaphors of Movement and Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) are the key tools that I use to enable clients to make quick progress in dismantling negative patterns of thinking that have been limiting their careers, relationships, health, finances and happiness.  

It is rare that I need to see clients for longer than six sessions because their progress is rapid. Some clients find that after just their first session that they have taken action in their lives which they have been dithering over for years.

Metaphors of Movement is the latest tool that I have added to my work with clients.  It is a remarkable way to access the limiting but unconscious ways that individuals hold beliefs about themselves and their experiences.  Accessing how people hold these beliefs and with further techniques, clients can see possibilities that they were previously unaware of.  Another of my favourite tools is Integral Eye Movement Therapy.   IEMT enables clients to disentangle the negative and sometimes extremely trapping emotions and the memories or stories that support them, very quickly. Often individuals have come to define themselves according to the fears, anxieties, sense of guilt that they hold. When free of these negative emotions and thought patterns they are in a good position to then develop new resourceful patterns of thinking and of taking action that enabling them to live their lives fully and to go from strength to strength.

I also work nutritionally with clients. Often clients when trapped in negative patterns (which impact their biochemistry negatively) tend to eat unhealthily. This has a compounding effect on their mental and physical health. In many respects it is correct to see ourselves as simply chemicals having trillions of chemical reactions every second of the day. Every thought, action and reaction, only occurs because of the reactions of the chemicals (nutrients) in our system. So if we are not putting the right and the right amount of the necessary chemicals (nutrients) into our bodies, then we can only expect to be having ineffective thoughts, actions and reactions - which, in turn has a compounding effect on our immediate and longterm health.

Many clients I work with have been diagnosed with ADHD, with ASD, Dyslexia or chronic disease which they find are affecting their ability to work effectively, and are struggling with high levels of stress, depression, poor self belief and self management.  They typically find that through the support and work that they engage in with me, that they become confident, effective and able to manage their lives much more effectively - sometimes for the first time.

I have worked with a great many individuals throughout my careers in the NHS and Private practice - I have accumulated 1000's of hours of expertise. My clients benefit from the breadth of my experience and expertise, the majority of them achieving great progress in a few sessions. Those who have lengthy history of troubled thinking and feeling will experience positive change quickly, however to maintain that progress may require them to have more sessions over a longer period of time to build a reliable new resourceful pattern.

I love seeing my clients grow in confidence, energy, success, improve the relationships in their lives and above all wake up to the control and influence that they have in every aspect of their lives.   (I coach face to face, by telephone and skype - locally, nationally and internationally)

Everyone has some area of their lives that they can and probably want to improve. Personal Development is vital for individuals to survive well in our fast changing world. Seeking and taking action to improve whatever area of your life you choose can transform not only that area but also have great beneficial impact to many other areas of your life, health, relationships, effectiveness, success, business - above all, your confidence in yourself to influence your life.

I am an accredited coach with the ICF, Master Practitioner of neuro linguistic programming and Master Theta Healer. Using NLP strategies and techniques and Theta Healing, the positive solution focussed approach of life coaching, and a comprehensive holistic approach - my clients achieve lasting results.

I coach in Ramsgate, Bromley, London or by special arrangement at your place of work, or via telephone, skype or google hangout. Check out my websites and

I work with confidence, personal development, health, stress, relationships, motivation, work/life balance, energy, women's health, depression, mentoring, ADHD and  business coaching issues.

I offer:-

  • One off sessions - for specific events
  • Blocks of coaching - to support the changes necessary to achieve goals, improved relationships, health improvements, weight management, address limiting beliefs, develop useful habits of thinking and for clients to develop clarity of purpose and strategies to attain their goals.
  • Residential coaching breaks by the sea in Ramsgate - to give you the break you need to chill out, address limiting beliefs and to break patterns that keep you stuck.
  • Half or Full day intensive coaching sessions
  • Nutritional support - addressing the poor lifestyle and diet choices many clients have been running whilst feeling too busy, too unhappy to make different choices in their lives. Individuals find that taking quality nutritional supplements do support them to manage mood swings, low mood, low energy and support them to develop better patterns of thinking and taking action. This is particularly important when dealing with adrenal fatique and adrenal burnout - which is common in our frenetic world.

I have extensive experience and expertise in working with professionals, individuals and families as a community and specialist health visitor in the NHS for 18 years. As a qualified life, health and well being coach, NLP master practitioner and Theta Healer, I now work with clients to improve their self-confidence, relationships, stress management, health and pain management and to achieve the results they want in their personal or business lives. Theta Healing works with the Theta brain waves to achieve deep belief change. I have DBR clearance and also work in secondary schools with adolescents who are struggling with their motivation and life direction.

My clients find themselves waking up to realise their own abilities and find a new joy in life and living that for many had slipped from their awareness for many years.   They learn how to be the best version of themselves and in so doing learn stress management, improve their energy levels, improve their health, improve their work-life balance, gain much more effective communication skills and hence improved, personal, family and work relationships, gain added resourcefulness and are motivated to take care of their lives.

Further information

Residential Coaching Breaks by the Sea - with follow-up skype sessions

I live and work just a couple of minute's walk from the sea. Walking by the sea, either along the beach or on the esplanades and over the cliffs can be a wonderful way to relax, think, reflect and if you choose have a coaching session. Walking whilst having a coaching session is a very effective way of accessing your unconscious mind and enabling deeper change. Obviously, in order to support lasting change - requires you to keep practising new behaviours and resolutions and with some follow-up coaching via skype you can gain great benefit. Beautiful fresh air, the sound of the sea, great expanses of ever changing sky and a very lovely friendly historic town to while away some time.

You can book and bring your partner - have sessions on your own or even with your partner, if you choose.

If you would like to address some health or diet issues and would find staying away from home and having some sessions examining the way you use foods or alcohol etc to deal with stresses in life - On a residential coaching break you can, be supported on a USANA reset detox - to help you to gain the confidence you need and to overcome sugar cravings and learn about the healthy foods that you can eat. During this break, you can have your current diet analysed and healthy alternatives and diet plans created for you.
