Speaker, writer and transformational coach, supporting high achieving men and women to discover, develop and delight in their legacy work.
Transforming life starts from within - we cannot live fully self-expressed and on purpose unless we are first in integrity with ourselves.
Often my clients come to me because they feel powerless to make the changes they want: because of family pressures, lack of confidence, fear of failure and difficulty in focusing and getting clear.
My goal is always to bring you back to you, your style and your way.
One that feels right for you.
I believe this is the only way to create a sustainable life that feels good to you AND where you can truly be at your best.
I have trained in an ontological (reflective) coaching style which puts you, the client as the expert in your life. I work intuitively, guided by your needs and goals and draw on a variety of tools and approaches.
I specialise in:
Wealth and finances
Sex and relationships
Chronic pain and illness
Major life change and loss/chronic patterns or behaviours
Why should you hire me?
Well, because I had a huge run in with life. And by life, I mean myself. Over and over and over.
When people face a major change in their lives, or they know they want more, often life gives them a wake-up call.
I should know.
Back in 2007, I was a committed Christian and in the post-graduate swamp of not knowing what I wanted to do with my life, but knowing I didn’t want to become a solicitor, despite my law degree.
My world then crashed when my recently ex-boyfriend was arrested and convicted of a serious crime. In the fallout, I left the church and my childhood faith, uprooted my life and moved across the country to start my first job. This was a graduate tax consultant role, a job I applied to for the sole reason that I enjoyed my tax law module at university.
After 12 months there, I knew I couldn’t spend the next 30 years making corporate tax calculations. I wanted to be using all my skills and abilities, not sit in an office and eat Marks & Spencers’ sandwiches for lunch (as nice as they were).
I googled ‘career change’ and hired my first coach. Before I had even received my exam results, I had quit my job and found my way into something much more creative: working for an artist. It was better but not enough. I twisted and turned my way through a few more jobs and ended up in London, back into corporate but this time in a great company, with great values and great people. It was fun, hard-work and somewhat rewarding but there was still something not right. I looked out of the window every day and knew I wanted more: something bigger, something fun and something that had me excited to get out of bed every day.
It was at that time that I hit my second run-in.
Our London ‘work hard, play hard’ craziness was taking its toll and I needed to spread my wings. A shake up in our team, the combination of over-working and a broken boiler and one day I snapped. I was sent home for a rest and I decided it was now or never.
I started seeing a counsellor and hired a life coach who lived in Italy. And, for the first time, I designed the life that I wanted from scratch, the life that I wanted, not anyone else. In 2014, I moved overseas to spend just over a year living la dolce vita and coaching anyone who would let me.
Since then, I have been building my practice and supporting men and women who are building lives, careers and business that desire to change the status quo, make a positive impact and make life way more fun!
They recognise that they need a special kind of support to get them to where they want to be.
I can help you achieve what you need quickly and if you’re the right type of client for me, I know you value that.
I will hold you accountable to what you want to create and in the way you want to create it.
I have a huge capacity to hold even the hardest stuff - I mean taboo, difficult, shameful, horrible shit. And I can also handle the outrageous dreams that you wouldn’t dream of telling anyone else but you secretly wish your life would look like. I won’t share with anyone that we’re working together and I won’t discuss our work with anyone.
Your calling is what you decide it is.
Your most beautiful life is determined by whatever the f*ck you say it looks like.
Your purpose is living your best and fabulous life. And that will change the world.
