Are you ready to reclaim your personal sovereignty?
I'm here for you, for as long as you need assistance to discover your inner self and heal your life.
What can coaching help you with?
Perhaps you're feeling burnt out, run-down, or alone right now. Maybe you know you have a creative spark in you, and potential to do wonderful things, but you just lack the motivation, self-belief and confidence. Maybe communication hasn't been going well for you recently, or you need someone to talk with simply to help you to grow.
Imagine, where you can go with coaching...
As a therapeutic coach, it's my mission to help you see your own worth, rise up with greater vitality, nourish your relationships and live life the way you want to. I invite you to heal, succeed and have fun!
When it comes to your greater happiness, we are in this together. Whether you arrive with laughter, tears, rage or "hallelujahs!" you'll be glad that no matter happens, I will hold you accountable for change and self-empowerment.
Are you wondering what coaching can give you?

WALKING TOGETHER: THERAPEUTIC COACHING IN SOMERSET
Once upon a time in a land called Avalon...
Do you love nature?
Do you enjoy spending time outdoors?
Do you feel that you would benefit from more peace and calm?
I'm known for holding coaching sessions outdoors in the outstanding beauty of the Mendip landscape, so you can breathe in the fresh air and really enjoy relaxing 'nature connection' as your journey inwardly also. I will walk with you in Wells and the surrounding areas.
My approach is informed by ecopsychology, forest bathing and mindfulness with plenty of scientific research into physical and mental health benefits. I can also sit with you in indoor and outdoor spaces.
When is the right time to start?
If you've been feeling miserable, unable to assert yourself, or in need of a creative boost lately then these sessions may be for you. People usually choose to start coaching because they feel disempowered, marginalised, isolated or stuck in some part of their life.
I work with people like you to overcome the stresses and strains of work and relationships and find greater 'inner space' and freedom.
Dream big, what can you expect?
Therapeutic coaching sessions are playful, inspiring and all-embracing of every aspect of you. I can help you find a way out out of the terrains of fear, shame and angst to arrive in greater happiness, a safe place to be. I'll help you build on your reserves of inner strength, assertiveness, and self-compassion, so you can free yourself, and truly enjoy life!
I invite you to drop your worries, and step into this opportunity to shine, and be the best version of you!
Some of the results of coaching include:
~ A tangible sense of inner healing and growth
~ Increased positive emotions and well-being
~ Greater stress resilience and ease amidst life's challenges
~ Increased levels of confidence and self-esteem
and much more
TRUE COMMUNICATION: COMMUNITY PROGRAMME
Making connection easy for you
"In true dialogue, both sides are willing to change."
~ Thich Nhat Hanh
Do you want to empower people in your organisation?
I work with adults, young people and children in local, national and global communities to uplift communication. You may feel like you are heading into a brick wall, that's ok, I imagine that's a fact, however, I have a ladder and a rope to help you get over it.
Do you want to transform conflict?
Life's hard when we encounter conflicts, lack of motivation and negative criticism. People may misunderstand you sometimes.
People might even treat you badly. I can support you to ease connection and build relationships.
Do you want to increase commitment and uplift performance?
I deliver programmes that will help you reach up and climb your way out of a dead end.
I can also mediate your colleagues and peers to help you succeed - together!
The programmes I craft together can ignite:
Increased application of personal strengths
More energy, joy and positive action
Improved language and social skills
Increased personal satisfaction
Greater productivity and performance results
A positive, creative and thriving community spirit
and much, much more

The coaching has been so supportive! I've really enjoyed it. Wednesdays are my new favourite day and I look forward to our sessions. I feel you're really easy to speak to and already since we began I feel I have changed a lot. I'm feeling much stronger and more assertive and able to meet my needs. Thank you!

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field. I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase “each other”
doesn’t make any sense.
The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don’t go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth across the doorsill
where the two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
Don’t go back to sleep.”
~ 'Great Wagon' poem by Rumi, the twelfth-century mystic
