“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” Lao Tzu



My own journey is one that was transformed by coaching. I had a successful life in every traditional sense and yet I knew something was missing. Coaching allowed me to fully meet myself and create a life that gives me vitality and meaning. After many years as a successful leader in the corporate world I now own my own change management and coaching business, and support others who want more from life but aren’t sure where to start or how to get there.


My coaching is personalised, holistic and transformational. This enables you to consider the interconnectedness of the different aspects of your life and make deep, lasting shifts in mindset and behavior in addition to achieving specific tangible outcomes. I create an environment that is open, trust based, growth-focused and allows space for both introspection and action. This ensures you feel heard, seen and supported to embrace opportunities for change. Within this space it becomes possible for self-limiting beliefs and unhelpful perspectives to be shifted.

My coaching is based on the Thoughtsmiths STAKES™ method (a neuroscience-based approach supported by extensive research and practical evidence), and coaching best practise from the International Coaching Federation (ICF). I also leverage mindfulness, embodiment practices, holistic wellness approaches, leadership models and change management methods, in a way that is based on client-specific needs.


Leadership Coaching – For both established and new leaders who want to identify and evaluate their strengths and weaknesses, grow in leadership competency, and implement strategies to improve their leadership skills. Examples include identifying and addressing blind spots, improving accountability and engagement, building effective teams, and developing a personal leadership brand.

Confidence and Communication Coaching – For anyone who needs to find their authentic voice and own their power. Examples include building self-confidence through learning to appreciate one’s unique strengths, embodying authenticity, navigating power and gender dynamics, improving communication skills, and enhancing interpersonal relationships.

Career Coaching – For individuals at any level of seniority who need help to identify and/or achieve their career goals. Examples include improving performance, developing professional skills, identifying opportunities for growth and advancement, navigating team and organisational dynamics, and planning a career path.

Holistic Wellness Coaching – For individuals who want to attain optimal health and wellness by looking at how the psychological, physical, spiritual and social aspects of their experience come together to impact their whole being. This approach promotes introspection and interoception to produce a more focused mindset and develop behaviors that are optimal to well-being.

Team Coaching – For organisational teams looking to collaboratively shift how they work together and how they deliver real impact.
