Coaching Credentials

I have had a lifelong fascination with personal improvement and attainment, setting life goals and pushing through comfort zones.  Over the years, and especially through my own personal challenges, I have gained a unique and valuable perspective on the role our mind plays.  

I am passionate about the coaching and mentoring work I do and live my life with passion also.  I pride myself in the quality service I provide my clients, and the high level of results I bring.

At a personal level I  practice mindfulness and meditation  – and am spiritually aware of being supported by a much bigger presence. I take a complete whole person approach when working with my clients as I don’t believe sustainable and best results come from compartmentalising or ‘avoiding talking’  about any of the different elements of life.
