"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.
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.
