I talk and work with people everyday who:
Have experienced a significant life change, been through a period of serious ill-health or living with a health condition
Are questioning how to make things different, how to spend their time, how to create their purpose
Feel like they’re going round in circles, and often lacking clarity and order in their minds and lives, despite putting effort into finding it
Are finding things overwhelming when they’re usually very capable
Want direction and focus to make good choices and decisions
Have had enough of others telling them what they could and should be doing to feel better. They want to discover their own solutions and path forwards.
Your struggle is unique to you and your reactions are yours. By understanding how you cope and manage, we can understand how to build your resilience and provide support that’s right for you and your needs – to feel brighter, calmer and happier.
Really, you want to get back to the you that you like. And I can help with that.
The work I do now was developed out of my professional health background. However primarily it came from a cancer diagnosis at 30. A time when life felt like it was just beginning to grow.
This was an experience that shook me to the core. It made me question everything and it forced me to be in a state that I hated and couldn’t see myself out of.
I hated being told I’d eventually feel differently because I couldn’t see it.
I hated how angry I felt and I hated how I was told to accept where I was because I couldn’t, wouldn’t and felt I shouldn’t have to.
But you know what? It changed.
It changed, with learning about myself, how I responded to challenges and how I could regain control. Things I now help others find and develop.
My qualifications to support you:
- Over 15 years experience in the NHS and charity sector
- 5 years supporting people to move forward from health and life challenges in both private and contracted practice
- MSc and Ba Hons in Health Psychology, specialising in the impact of understanding risk and trauma on our behaviours
- Diploma in coaching and NLP, specialist interest in coaching after cancer

My experience to support you:
I’ve supported people’s health and wellbeing for nearly 20 years in the NHS, charities and through my private practice. I love working with people to bring out the best in them, understand what makes them tick and how they’re going to act on all the ideas and creativity they remember they have.
We’re so often told not to think in certain ways, but if we’re given permission to, we often come up with brilliant new options for changing things up and finding out what our path is ourselves.
If you’d like to move forward from the stuck and overwhelming place you feel in now, to feel resilient, calm and with a plan you can carry out for life, get in touch.
How do you get there? Through coaching, workshops or my cancer specific support programme.
