“Don’t ask what the world needs.  Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it.  Because what the world needs is people who have come alive” – Howard Thurman.

I SEE YOU

You’ve been listening to everyone but yourself.  You feel stuck in a holding pattern in your life.  You’re ready for a change, but you don’t know how or where to start.  You doubt whether your dreams and ideas matter.

You’re grateful for your life and yet you keep asking yourself, “Is this really it?” You simply can’t shake the feeling that you’re meant to be doing something more.

I can help.

My work is about helping you come home to yourself.

The core of my work is about guiding you to listen to yourself, learning to trust your intuition and cultivating your self-belief. Everything feels possible when you dare to believe in yourself.

I work with women who know they’re here for a reason and want to do something meaningful with their lives.  They refuse to accept the status quo.  They are both dreamers and doers.

I trained as a Life and Personal Performance Coach with The Coaching Academy and have a post-graduate diploma in Applied Psychology from Birkbeck, University of London. But that’s not the reason I feel confident in my coaching ability; it’s the challenges I’ve overcome and the radical changes I’ve made in my own life that make me feel qualified to do this work.

MY STORY SO FAR

“Is this really it?”

My journey into answering that question has taken me on paths I never expected to tread.  In 2013 I left my successful corporate career and swapped my high heels for sandals and several months of travel.  I launched a personal styling business, not due to a ‘passion for fashion’ but because it was the first thing that made sense, and sometimes you’ve just got to take that first step.  I started a personal blog, which no longer exists, and yet – it changed my life.  It not only unearthed a love of writing, the blog (to my surprise) helped me get to know myself in ways I’d never done before.  I felt like I had finally come home to myself.

Eventually I landed here.  Doing work I love.

I make it sound so simple, right?

It’s been anything but.  I’ve worked hard, had my fair share of failures, experienced depression and questioned myself (almost) every step of the way.  I spent far more time than I’d like to admit trying to work out what I should be doing and how to do it.

But over time I learned to trust myself and to follow my intuition.  I began to make decisions that felt right for me.  I started to value my own time and protect it.  I stopped procrastinating and took action.  I began to make things happen.  I stopped trying to twist and squeeze myself into what I thought everyone else wanted.  My life changed radically as a result – but I’m only just getting started.

Now I want to help you learn to trust yourself and follow your intuition too.

I believe that life is really just a journey of experimentation, exploration and imagination.  That it’s never too late to become who you really want to be.

I’ve lived in London for 16 years but my heart belongs to the ocean.  I share a home with the person who is my best friend, my husband – David.  It’s filled with books and photographs and there’s an artist’s easel in one corner of our living room.  I’m a creative soul with an adventurous heart. I’ve travelled the world, but I never tire of packing a bag and heading somewhere new.  I love dancing and red nail polish as much as I love the smell of horses and camping under the stars.

I am a coach who believes that it’s time for women to take back their power.

I am a writer who is learning to bravely bring all of myself to the page.

And I know that it’s never too late to change your story.

Thanks for being here,
