MY PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND

I spent many years specialising in science and healthcare communications, as well as running a global education network, before refocussing more on professional coaching and training. Much of this work had a strong coaching and mentoring element. I continue my love of communications in a freelance capacity. I know what it feels like to take control and transform your life because I have done it myself. Now I enjoy helping others to do this for themselves – in both their personal and business lives – through coaching groups and individuals, running workshops (including as a licenced Feel The Fear Trainer for the Susan Jeffers Organisation), and leading training workshops and courses. 

I am also a Licenced Master Practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), which I incorporate into my coaching style and which gives me an in depth understanding of language that I use to provide added value for my communications clients. My yoga and martial arts background, as well as advanced training in applied neuroscience, enable me to bring additional tools – including awareness of the mind-body connection – and a unique perspective to personal development.
