Biography

Experienced, qualified and passionate life coach, trainer, facilitator, manager and mentor.

Whether it is with groups or individuals, I love working with people to help make a real difference to their lives.

By creating and holding a safe space as well as offering some practical tools, I can help to foster confidence and clarity, being a catalyst for long-term, positive and sustainable change.

By helping people shift their perspective and change the way they think about things, they are better able to move and navigate through their blocks. More choices open up and become available, they start to believe in themselves, see new possibilities and can access new and exciting opportunities for themselves.

For me personally, coaching is about empowerment. I fully champion the idea that people have the capacity to find their own answers to the challenges they're facing - when the right conditions are created for and with them. In my experience, the less we offer direct advice and attempt to solve other people's problems for them, the more they can enjoy learning, growing and re/gaining trust and belief and confidence in themselves so they can fulfil their potential in life.

Ultimately I seek to enable others to take full ownership of their lives, nurturing their inner compass and authority, and in doing so they tend to become more resourceful, decisive, resilient and self confident with a clearer vision for how they want to be experiencing their life.

This whole process brings me so much joy!

Also an avid foodie, fitness enthusiast, traveller and choir member!
