My Story

I qualified as a Co-Active Coach in 2015, having trained with the respected Coaches Training Institute. I am known for my empathy, combined with curiosity, courage and playfulness.

My journey here has been bumpy. I found work that mattered to me and I threw myself into it, heart and soul, putting much of the rest of my life on hold. All went well - until it didn't.

I burnt out, broke down and had to rebalance my life.


The biggest lesson I've learned is to be myself, to do what matters to me, to say what needs to be said, without worrying about what others will think. This is the work of a lifetime.


So much of the time, and often without knowing it, we limit ourselves and keep ourselves small, but you can't lead, love or parent fully from this place.  So I'm on a mission to be freely and fearlessly me and to help you make this transition more elegantly than I did.

​Before becoming a coach I spent 18 years as an entrepreneur and consultant, working on sustainability and ethical trade. I've always been passionate about making a difference in the world, and this continues today in my roles as coach, writer and mum. 


I am committed to inspiring and supporting you to grow, to feel more alive and make a meaningful difference in this crazy, beautiful, mixed-up world.
