I worked for a global pharmaceutical for many years and became more and more interested in personal development, especially coaching.

I trained as a corporate coach helping leaders be more confident and dynamic.

I now happily run my own coaching practice. I also spent many years as a volunteer career coach in the local community.

I’m really good at helping recognise their unique strengths and capabilities and encouraging them to believe in themselves! I have an unhealthy fascination with CVs and all forms of communication.

I’m currently branching out into comedy writing 😜

Why I love coaching

  • I believe that coaching helps people find inner strength, courage to make changes and answers to their problems. I love being a part of that.
  • Sometimes I encourage clients to go outside of their comfort zone's a video showing me going w-a-a-a-y beyond mine!

My first attempt at stand-up comedy!
