Welcome to my world…
Here is a potted history of my life journey so far…
About me and mine
I live in North Norfolk, sandwiched between the sea and the countryside, exactly where I was meant to be for my own well-being. I live here with my husband Clive and our two gorgeous cats Pandora and Lola.
Why I do what I do
Since 2004 I have been a Development Coach and NLP Master Practitioner and, during this time, I’ve supported hundreds of people through changes in both their personal and professional lives. I received my training from some of the most inspirational and influential people in the coaching and NLP world including Dr Richard Bandler, Paul McKenna, and Michael Neal.
As well as my personal development work I’ve also had over 30 years of managing teams of people and working in various companies, charities and on other organisational development projects.
I consider it to be a real privilege to be part of someone’s development journey and I love to watch my clients change and grow in confidence and self esteem as they journey towards achieve their life goals!
For my personal coaching I work on a one-to-one basis. By combining traditional face-to-face or telephone consultations with the latest Internet technology such as video calls using Skype or FaceTime I can provide the very best and most convenient support to my clients and work with people all over the world…..amazing!
Clients come to me for all sorts of reasons and I work closely with them to identify the root causes of the issue and then help them to achieve a solution and move on with their life.
I myself have, at various times, suffered with bouts of depression, low self-esteem, weight and body image issues and lack of confidence. Although this has been personally challenging I know that I would not be the person I am and be able to support others in the way that I do without these life experiences.
Over the years I’ve been very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with amazing people on some great projects. These have included working on TV documentaries, creating training programmes for charities and running a business development service for budding entrepreneurs. I even got to perform on stage with the Birmingham Royal Ballet! The variety is just astonishing and I’ve loved every single one of these projects!
One of my greatest passions is my work with the British Red Cross on behalf of the British Foreign Office. I’ve been a member of the BRC Psycho Social Support Team since 2005 and have been called on to respond to situations abroad where British Nationals have been affected. Anything from a natural disaster to a terrorist attack can trigger the call for assistance.
As an example I was flown into Haiti following the devastating earthquake there in 2010 when over 230,000 people were killed. I also have treasured memories of my work in Zimbabwe over a 16 month period, supporting a resettlement programme for elderly people who had been forced out of their homesteads .
I also carry out Training and Development work with the Alzheimer’s Society. This is hugely satisfying as it has provided me with insight into the care I provide to my own mother who is suffering from dementia.
My experiences with the British Red Cross, the Alzheimer’s Society and with people in general, have shaped me as a person and remind me of just how lucky I am to do the things I do and to enjoy the support I have in my own life.
Through my own experiences I hope to motivate and inspire others to overcome their own challenges, find positive health and wellbeing and create the life they want to have!

I believe life is one great journey and we all go through it in our own way. My role as your coach is to assist you on yours, helping you to gain clarity in any aspect of your life and work towards making positive change whether it be a goal you want to achieve, a habit you want to break or a life-change you want to make.
I look forward to starting the next part of your journey with you and can’t wait to see where it takes you!
