'Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.' Viktor Frankl

My work draws on over 2O years of practice in the areas of emotional wellbeing, addiction recovery, human potential and leadership. I will guide you towards greater meaning and purpose in your life, supporting you to act on your deepest values and fully realising your potential. We all have the ability to flourish and thrive, living without behaviours and beliefs that cause suffering and keep us away from that which we most long for.


I will meet you at whatever stage you are at, without judgement and with compassion. I will bring new perspectives to your challenges and help you turn obstacles into life lessons and gifts. I know what it is like to feel stuck, without hope or caught in a story that seems to be governed by the past. Our work together may involve making sense of this past and integrating it into a new story that works for you and how you want to live your life. Drawing upon my experience and training I will also provide you with practical techniques and resources that will support you to heal and achieve your life goals.

Some of the key areas that I work with are:

  • Emotional wellbeing
  • Coping with life's up's and downs
  • Addiction
  • Relationship struggles
  • Parenting
  • Lack of purpose, motivation, and passion
  • Life Transitions
  • Bereavement
  • Spiritual and Existential crisis and development


As well as being a trained Life Coach, I also offer Leadership Coaching based on 5DL or the 5 dimensions of Leadership, developed by Roger Evans and his team at CLC 2O2O during 3O years of senior organisational consulting. Coaching is usually short term (6 sessions) and intensely practical. It helps develop a state of mind, a way of being and living that meets your needs and aspirations.

As a coach, I will 'have your back' working really closely with you to help you identify and achieve your goals whether they be personal, professional or organisational. I will work flexibly with you and this may entail bespoke training sessions and use of multi-media resources.

Some of the areas that coaching may be suitable for are:

  • Professional and Leadership Development
  • Manging organisational, community or family change & dynamics
  • Career progression incl. Interview preparation and job changes
  • Returning to work
  • Confidence building
  • Mindfulness
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Life Planning and personal growth
  • Life transitions

I look forward to working with you.
