My aim is to help you shine a light on what’s important to you, what’s holding you back from achieving the life you want and how you can take action to get there.

Hello. If we’re to work together to make the changes you want to see in your life, you’ll want to know a little about me, I’m sure.

I’m a professional transformational coach holding a Diploma in Performance Coaching with Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)*, and I’m a Member of the National Council of Integrative Psychotherapists. I’ve studied psychology at degree level and completed The Breakthrough System training programme with the (Anthony) Robbins-Madanes Training Centre. I’ve mentored secondary school students and I’m a Firework™ trained career transition coach, training which is accredited by the International Coach Federation.

Trained and mentored by renowned coach, hypnotherapist and phobia treatment expert, Ali Campbell, I am also able to offer help for phobias using a powerful combination of coaching, NLP and hypnotherapy.

After being widowed 25 years ago I’ve brought up 2 now-adult children. I’ve done that sometimes confusing and scary dating thing in later life where all the rules seem to have changed and no-one tipped you off.

And I’m now happily remarried!

I’ve successfully transitioned from one career to another and I’ve enjoyed travelling abroad alone many times, often to acquire new skills such as learning a language, photography and sailing.

And in 2020 I published my debut novel, Recovery Position – a story about a midlife woman searching for meaning and love in her life. You can find it via the Book tab.

With a career spanning many years in Human Resource Management I’ve observed at close hand a range of often challenging, surprising, but always interesting human behaviour. This followed a portfolio career encompassing self-employment in a creative field including TV presenting, interior design, tutoring and consulting in decorative paint effects.

People keep me curious; I’ve an aptitude for listening through what they are saying to what lies deeper within the structure of their communication, both verbal and non-verbal. And I’m excited by self-development and lifelong learning.

* broadly, a system which enables self-awareness and effective communication, leading to changes in patterns of mental and emotional behaviour … and it works! Powerfully. Quickly. Perhaps you’ll have seen Tony Robbins or Paul McKenna use NLP techniques to achieve dramatic breakthroughs. Neuro relates to how the brain processes information received from our senses; Linguistic relates to how we use language and non-verbal communication, how we talk to ourselves and attribute meaning to our internal representation of the world; Programming refers to the way in which we develop strategies by which we run our lives, often unconsciously, based on our experiences and how we ascribe meaning to these. By developing an understanding of these processes we can use NLP techniques to change our thoughts, emotions and behaviours.
