I was the kid at school who never knew what she wanted to do. And consequently, life became a series of trials and errors trying to figure out what it was that made me happy!
Like so many people these days I’ve experienced my fair share of highs and lows – I’ve been married, divorced, started all over again, navigated the scary new world of dating, experienced some challenging relationships, lost people I loved, moved house 5 times in 5 years, renovated houses, built a house from scratch and had to try and function like a normal human being whilst trying REALLY hard not to drop all the plates I was spinning! So unsurprisingly, at times, I have also struggled with stress, overwhelm, anxiety, depression and despair. I also have a 100% success rate of making it through difficult times, and this is why I know that you can too.
I first experienced the magic of coaching when I was going through a really difficult time in my life. It helped me to gain clarity and let go of things that were holding me back. It provided space for me to talk through the jumbled mess of thoughts that were taking up valuable headspace and brought me to my own attention so I could move forward.
That experience started my journey of self-discovery and personal development and ultimately led me to re-train and start my own business. I am passionate about helping people become their best self and live a life they love. I also believe that it’s important for us to have a little fun along the way!
I have been coaching in organisations since 2014 and hold an ICF (International Coaching Federation) accredited Diploma in Transformational Coaching from Animas Centre for Coaching in London. I am fully insured, DBS and ICO certified.
I am certified to use the DISC Personal Assessment tool, which I find invaluable in helping my clients develop greater self awareness. DISC helps you to understand your personality to get ahead in your career, to communicate more effectively in relationships and to understand your personal patterns of behaviour.
I am also a volunteer coach for the charity Yes Futures, which offers coaching in schools to kids aged 8-18 years, to help them to build confidence, resilience, communication skills and self awareness.
I offer personal development coaching to individuals online or face to face and within small businesses and large corporate organisations. You can see feedback from some of my previous clients here:
Coaching has changed my life, and it continues to do so today. I have a coach myself, and I believe in it because it works. That doesn’t mean my life is perfect; I’m still human after all! However you’ll be pleased to know that eventually, after A LOT of trials & errors, I finally found that elusive happiness……
