Professional Background

My entire career has revolved around working with people to help them through challenging personal or professional situations.


I started my career as a children's social worker and then moved to a women's aid charity, where I set up and and managed a pan-London domestic and sexual violence telephone advice service.


After gaining my masters degree in Human Resource Development and Consultancy, I became a recruiter and then an HR business partner at a global international development company.     

What Drew You To Coaching?

My motivation for coaching comes from one of the key lessons I have learned from my 15 years of experience working with people: ‘Become aware of the things that we cannot change, have the courage to change the things that we can and gain the wisdom to know the difference.’


I see my role as coach to facilitate this for my clients.


I offer a non-judgmental, listening ear; and become an accountability partner who will challenge and encourage them to build resilience by turning weaknesses into strengths and failures into future successes.


My own work experience has given me the knowledge and tools to effectively support my clients to overcome these challenges.
