Helping people find their path
I’m a fully qualified executive and personal development coach who’s been supporting people change their lives for over 15 years. In that time I’ve worked as a change director for worldwide change programmes, but now spend my time exploring the world while coaching amazing humans to find their own path through life.
What I believe
We can’t always choose what life throws our way, but we can absolutely choose what we do with it. I believe everyone deserves the opportunity and support to realise a life they enjoy living – whatever that looks like to them.
I also believe it’s easy to lose our way and feel like a stranger in our own lives. Pulled by competing priorities, weighed down by unhelpful scripts and stuck in the paradox of feeling constantly busy while never getting where we want to go.
It doesn’t need to be like this.
I help people to reconnect with what really matters to them, and craft a path through life that works for them.
There are an awful lot of ways to live a human life, and it’s a terrible shame when we don’t get to live the one that fits us best.
And so I coach the courageous people who, although feeling a little lost, have the bravery to do something about it. To support them to make the most of their innate gifts, and find a path that brings them the joy we all deserve.
A few bits about me.

The foundational skills in my coaching approach.
What I stand by.
Foundations of growth
How I believe clients can grow with kindness.
that’s free from judgement
The better we know ourselves, the easier our lives can be. But we also need to learn to be kind to ourselves – to be thoughtful observers to our nature rather than harsh critics. Self-awareness without the stigma that we need to be more than we are.
Being able to reflect on ourselves and explore our behaviour without becoming prisoners to our thinking. To find a balanced approach to reflection and the growth of our emotional intelligence.
of who you are today
It may sound paradoxical, but the more we accept ourselves for who we are today the easier it is to grow into something tomorrow. Acknowledging the remarkable person you are already helps build on the strengths you already have.
to learn about ourselves
Supporting clients to have the curiosity to learn about themselves, what makes them happy and what they want from life. Learning about ourselves is an ever changing, lifelong endeavour so it pays to be inquisitive.
to change the things we want to
I help clients to build the courage to make change in their lives when they need to, and develop the resilience to work through life’s challenges when they arise.
to find a life that makes you content
There’s no solution that fits everyone, so it’s about understanding what works for you. It’s about exploring solutions, ideas and approaches together – and finding something that fits you.
How I run my coaching sessions.
You always set the agenda
You’re in charge and set the agenda for each session or group of sessions. We’ll always agree at the start what you want to focus on and what we want to achieve.
My role is to be an attentive companion
I’m not there to impose my views – I’m there to help you explore your thinking. A coach should never be the biggest personality in the room and our focus will always be on supporting you to find your own way.
We’ll always focus on what actions or outcomes we want to see. Sometimes you won’t know exactly what that looks like – so we’ll work on it together
The time and space to think
Most people are never given the time, space and support to achieve what they’re really capable of – I offer this space and support to my clients.
It’s a partnership
I work as a partner with you. I’m not there to tell you what’s right, make judgements or force you to do things my way. We navigate together, understanding your situation, developing options and agreeing a way forward.
To really listen, without judgement
Coaching is about listening. Really listening. Then asking the right questions. My role is to be attentive and aware of your thought process, and thoughtfully challenge it to lead to better outcomes.
