I have been working in various forms of personal development, one-to one and with groups, for more than 20 years.  Looking back, as early as my teens, I was fascinated by people and how they might achieve personal fulfillment. I recently came across a dog eared copy of a book by psychologist Dorothy Rowe called The Successful Self, which I bought when I was still at school. I had forgotten just how early this interest blossomed in me. I feel very strongly that the lives we build should be, as far as possible, meaningful and uniquely suited to our personal passions and values. But it took me a long time and many false starts to create that for myself.

Now I want to help as many people as possible create lives they love that allow them to express their unique gifts and selves, at work and in their personal lives.

I work as a personal life coach with individuals and as  a personal development trainer for businesses and organisations.  I am also a textile artist – something which represents my own achievement of a long held and deeply buried goal!

As well as general life coaching, I have a particular interest in coaching creatives and artists and in coaching people using a Low Carb High Fat (LCHF) eating style to lose weight and improve health.
