About Me

“As soon as you trust yourself you will know how to live”


Why am I qualified to coach you?

I am a fully qualified Theatre for Development Practitioner (MA), Drama Teacher (BA Hons) and a certified Strategic Intervention (SI) Coach under teachers Tony Robbins, Chloe Madanes, Mark Peysha and Magali Peysha.

With 20 years experience in the education and development sectors in the UK, Europe and South Asia, I have cultivated a significant understanding of the methods required for building confidence, self determination, teamwork and empowerment. In my varied career, which involves regularly working abroad. And I have made mistakes, plenty! But I’ve learned from each one adding to my toolkit as a coach.

My practice draws from a variety of disciplines including Strategic Interventionist and Habit Coaching, Human Needs Psychology, Applied Drama and Theatre for Development, Neurolinguistics, Yoga, Diaphragmatic breathing techniques and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I will help you find true appreciation of yourself. You will learn to use the resources you already have, as well as become equipped with the skills and tools to use those. Together we will then create, and maintain, the positive impact you want.

With individual coaching I tailor the process to your needs. With a mix of online or face-to-face sessions, and habit forming homework to ensure sustained results. The sessions are creative, fun (mostly!), and enable you to learn life-skills and techniques for any number of transformative goals.

Born in 1980, I am a mother of two teens, Bethan and Jonathan. I love singing, and regularly have a good laugh singing with my husband Mark, who plays guitar. I have run marathons on the Jurassic Coast and in the New Forest and swum marathon swims in the English Channel and on the Atlantic Coast. I’m also the founder and director of education charity Freedom to Learn, facilitating a fantastic team who work tirelessly to improve the access to and quality of education for over 5000 children in Nepal.
