I often think that if Tony Robbins, Brené Brown and Bruce Dickinson had a lovechild, it would be me.
That’s because I’m a hugely passionate Life Coach, I love getting underneath the skin of what makes people tick, and helping them use this to achieve their biggest dreams. I also love helping people to regain their health from ME / CFS and Fibromyalgia. Oh, and I like to think I’m a little bit rock ‘n’ roll.
Originally from the beautiful county of Cornwall, my career started in the corporate world, where I spent twenty years coaching individuals and teams, training, leading change programmes, and many other ‘corporate things’ such as leading commercial teams, creating marketing campaigns, delivering IT projects and doing the ‘hard sums’ to make sure we were making profit doing all of this.
Falling ill with ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) for six years led me on a journey of personal discovery, where I had to dig deep to understand exactly what I needed to do to regain my health fully again. In the process I had a massive realisation: that instead of just using my talents in a corporate environment, I wanted to use my coaching skills and experience to help individuals to fundamentally transform their lives.
I now help people to create the life that sets them on fire – whether that’s by using my own experience as an ME, CFS and Fibromyalgia Support Practitioner to help guide them out of chronic illness and back to full health or by helping people in my capacity as Life Coach to dream big in any and every area of their life and put the steps in place to get them there.
Here is what I believe:
Wellbeing is fundamental to living a fulfilling life
Recovery from chronic health conditions such as ME / CFS and Fibromyalgia is absolutely possible
Stress and burnout does not have to be the price of a successful career
You can take control of your life to find your bliss, unlock your power, achieve the balance you want, and design and live your most fulfilling life
I am trained by the Coaches Training Institute; and am an ILM Accredited Wellbeing Coach and FHT Accredited Specialist Practitioner with The Chrysalis Effect Supported Recovery Programme.
When I’m not coaching, you can find me at home in our little Bedfordshire village with my husband James, at the gym working towards ‘lifting heavy’, on my yoga mat, creating new art, or quite possibly rocking out at a music festival.
