My mission is to support people to make a positive difference to their lives and those around them. To facilitate the transformation to the best possible life.
I believe that we all have a purpose, that anything is possible and that there is always a solution if we are resilient enough to keep looking. I believe that we are all responsible for our own happiness and that anyone is able to change their lives for the better if they are willing to take full responsibility for their thoughts, words and actions.

HOW I WORK
Our sessions together can be either face to face in your home or somewhere you feel comfortable, or via Skype or telephone. I work with people 1:1, in groups, teams, couples and families.
I always work to your agenda - coaching is about you and what you want, I will challenge you in a supportive way to ensure that you are confident of the choice you are making and will offer feedback on the patterns that I observe that will help you to make the changes you desire. Feedback can be a very powerful tool in developing self-awareness, we can choose to either keep those patterns or do something different.
Every person I work with is an individual and every individual journey is different. I believe that change is a process that takes commitment and creativity from both the coach and client. When we create our contract to working together that is my commitment to supporting you achieve your desired outcome.
Knowing what my values are helps me know know if I am on the right path and feel congruent in my life. I things that are important to me in my life and work are love, trust, honesty, openness, courage, integrity, support, connectedness, commitment and freedom. Supporting my clients to have a deep understanding of their own values is a key foundation to the work we do.
I would love to have a conversation and see how I can support you to achieve your dreams, or maybe even work out what they are!
