ABOUT 
"Happiness depends upon ourselves"  Aristotle 

I coach people who need a coach to help them develop to reach their full potential, that something is missing, or they are in some form of 'mid-life-crisis' .  They don't feel themselves, that life is passing them by, and that there is more to life. An identity or existential crisis. What am I actually doing with my life?  

 

I'm also a volunteer for Coaching through Covid, supporting key workers directly impacted by covid-19, all close to my heart. The NHS is now adding coaching as psychological support to doctors, nurses, anesthetists, midwives - as part of a package to address burnout, stress and anxiety.  I work in the marketing and support team, matching coaches with NHS staff, to address the myriad of emotions that come with being seen as a superhero and the pressure and disillusionment or fatigue that can result. 

I have a science background, and use evidence-based scientific coaching approaches from social sciences and psychologically-informed practices that are succesful in health and wellbeing, and the disability sector.  I use positive and existential psychology, aligning values, and reframing or unblocking barriers to live a life that's happier from the inside out.  Career coaching and personal development go hand in hand, helping you to create a life with purpose, confidence and direction. 

My background is a living example of how we can create our own happiness. How I shifted from hiding in the dark offices of the financial corporate world to shining in a new life of coastal walks at lunchtime and running an inspiring business which relies on me actually being totally myself - more on my Blog and instagram.

I was lucky enough to go to Coaching at Work's annual conference 2020 and my review on Adaptive Leadership in Extra-ordinary Times was published by Association for Coaching.
