ABOUT ME

My coaching is all about helping you to create a work life that brings joy and fulfilment. I know this because I’ve done it myself…more on that below…but first YOU

  – You’re thinking about coaching because the work you once loved is now sucking the joy out of life. 

  – You care about your work and you want to have impact in the world.

  – You may be struggling to combine the emotional load of parenthood with a demanding workload, feeling like your identity is gradually being eroded by different demands.

  – You feel like you have to be someone you’re not in order to succeed in your work. 

When work is a fully integrated part of our lives and who we are, it feels purposeful.  Purposeful work is that sense of being in the right place and knowing why you’re there.

My route to coaching follows a lifelong interest in people, their passions, and unearthing potential.  It started in my work in education, teaching and leading in busy London primary schools supporting high-achieving pupils along with those with identified special needs.

After becoming a parent for the third time I found myself feeling lost.  The ‘family friendly’ career I had worked so hard towards suddenly didn’t seem right.  I felt guilty all the time.  I had a sinking feeling at the thought of the rest of my working life stretching ahead of me – and none of it exciting me anymore.  The more I thought about it, the more overwhelming it felt.  I knew that parenthood had stretched me, and I realized I wanted more of this in my worklife – more challenge and greater flexibility.  I wanted a long and sustainable career.  I wanted to work on my terms.   It felt like a big ask.  Coaching empowered me to pivot and redefine my career.  I now support others in doing the same.
