About Me

My life so far has been quite the journey!

In no particular order, here is a snapshot of everything I’ve experienced:

  • Jumped out of a plane at 10,000 feet in Hawaii
  • Walked a marathon and a half (36 miles) for breast cancer in Texas
  • Had my heart shattered
  • Became the executive of a charitable trust in Scotland
  • Managed bars and restaurants in Canada and UK
  • Backpacked through Europe
  • Lived in Australia & Hawaii
  • Found the courage to leave an unhappy marriage
  • Been a child advocate in court
  • Trained as a pilates instructor
  • Dealt with alcohol and drug misuse
  • Flew in a microlight plane across the himalayas
  • Overcome bulimia
  • Bought a house without seeing it (and yep, I still LOVE it!!)
  • Got my motorbike license
  • Found my calling in life

My experiences - good and bad - have helped me develop compassion, empathy and understanding which only adds to the richness of what I can offer through my coaching sessions.

My mid-40s was a pivotal moment for me. I was sad, lost and seemingly stuck in an unhappy marriage. I couldn’t help but feel something was missing.

Then, in a moment of clarity I realised: I wasn’t living life on my own terms. I was living the life everyone else expected of me, and I had been for a very long time. But it wasn’t a life that brought me joy. No wonder I was so miserable!

I hit the reset button. And so can you.

I know exactly how terrifying it can be to reinvent yourself or to change things when you feel like life just keeps happening to you. It can feel like so many obstacles stand in your way, and are almost impossible to overcome. But it is possible, and I am living proof.

From that moment of clarity, my life took a different path. I managed to gracefully split from my husband, on amicable terms. I faced up to my own issues of anxiety, depression, eating disorders, self medicating and low self esteem. We all have our battles to face. And when we come out on the other side, we’re stronger.

How can I help you?

I absolutely believe we all have the potential to transform our lives and create the life we’ve always wanted, no matter what might stand in our way.

I’ve made it my mission and purpose to help people like you live an amazing life.

Now my question to you is: are you ready for a positive change?


  • Hit the reset button and reinvent yourself?
  • Generate unlimited happiness and success?
  • Overcome your fears?
  • Start living your BEST life?

If the answer is yes, then let’s work together to ignite your
passion and give you clarity on the journey ahead.

Facing your demons isn’t easy. But I’ll be with you every step of the way. Together we can overcome these obstacles. Like me, you’ll emerge on the other side with a new sense of purpose and greater enjoyment of all the beauty life has to offer.
