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. "What am I doing with my life?"   

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 glowing in a new life of coastal walks at lunchtime and running an inspiring business which relies on me actually being totally myself, and true to myself. No more work masks. 

 

I love working with people at the intersection of work, life and the many identities that people can have, to create a life that makes them happy, fulfilled and balanced.
