Life Coach, Counsellor & Therapist


It's all about you


Life is a gift that deserves to be cherished.  But sometimes it doesn’t feel that way.  At times you get thrown off track and struggle to get back on.

If you’re here because you or someone you love is feeling out of sync, overwhelmed, sad, anxious, lost, guilty or a whole myriad of other emotions that just don’t seem right, find a quiet place, take a seat, and read on.  Trust me, the fact that you’re here is a huge step in the right direction. 

Together we can get you or your loved one to where you or they want to be.  Irrespective of how overwhelming the emotions you’re experiencing right now feel, your road to recovery can be as short as you want to make it.  You can feel the way you want to feel and it can happen sooner than you think. 

Let’s work together so you can find happiness, freedom and joy, free yourself of the control of others, change your reactions and make the outcomes yours.  Right here you can find happiness, calm, contentment and success.


Coaching for Adults

No matter whether you’re running a multi-million-pound business, holding down a high-flying job, are unemployed or a stay-at-home-through-choice parent, life can throw you a curve ball from time to time. 

It may be that outside appearances say you’re strong, calm and in control.  But if you’re being torn to bits on the inside it’s tough.  I know.  I work with people who feel that way all the time.

Perhaps you’ve lost the inner direction, clarity and confidence you once had?  Or maybe you’re finding happiness and contentment impossible to pin down?  Either way, the support I provide will get you back on to the path you want, sooner than you dare imagine. 

Irrespective of the source of the challenges you’re facing right now, there is no shame, guilt or failure in seeking help.  In fact, seeking help is the strong and courageous thing to do.  The right thing to do. Your life deserves the respect you’re showing it right now.  Well done you. 


Coaching for Teens

Being a teenager or parent of a teenager is fun and exciting in equal measure, but at times can be tough. Social withdrawal, self-loathing, erratic eating and disturbed sleep can play havoc with both teenagers lives and the lives of those around them.  But it needn’t be that way.

As a teen, you want to stop worrying, be happy and feel confident.  But for now everything seems gloomy no matter where you look.  Maybe you feel overwhelmed or sad? Perhaps you think that feeling better isn’t an option?  You don’t know what to do with yourself or even what you like any more.  Believe it or not, there are tons of teenagers that feel exactly the same.  Although that in itself won’t make you feel better, it will hopefully help you see that things can change.

Together we’ll work out what you want whether it be how to gain self confidence, overcoming loneliness, teenage anxiety or improving self esteem.  We’ll break down the barriers that are holding you back and help re-build your confidence and self esteem.  When we work together, you’ll be able to replace your negative feelings with new and more positive ones in a safe and supportive environment.

coaching for business

It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.
— Charles Darwin

Change is everywhere and success requires Directors, leadership teams and employees to flow through change. How individuals flow through this process is much larger than the change they are in. People have different styles, personalities and beliefs that impact how they perform.

Running any size of business is a challenge.  I have 20 years’ experience in a corporate setting, 10 years’ success running my own small businesses and I am a qualified and successful coach. This means I’m perfectly placed to add significant value to your businesses regardless of it being big or small.  I have a long and successful track record of working with groups and am known for getting results.  People are my passion and I change behaviour and beliefs to drive performance and results.

I work with corporates and SMEs to deliver the very best from their people and the opportunities that are open to them.  Typically working in groups of anything between 8 and 30 people, bringing me in as a coach is a great way to achieve enhanced results and to get everyone moving forward in the same direction.

The benefits of me supporting you is that I am not attached to your business, I have no pre-conceived ideas and see no barriers.  My focus and skill is getting your desired results.

What’s your business challenge?

I invite you to read on, spend some of your of investment that is normally used internally on staff training, process reviews and communication to work with me on changing behaviour and enhancing your overall team performance and success.
