"Whatever is happening will change, and what I add to this situation is part of that change.",

  • Entering a new phase of life?
  • Moving house?
  • Moving jobs?
  • Kids leaving home?
  • Stuck in the same old routine?
  • Feeling left behind?
  • Drained?
  • Anxious?
  • Empty?
  • Want the world to stop and let you catch your breath?
  • Health holding you back?
  • Barriers exist where once they didn't?
  • And a 1001 great 'reasons' why you aren't doing what you want to do or living the life you want to lead?

What we believe, the way we think and how we live directly affects health, wellness and performance... Breakthrough to do what you really want to do in the way that you really want to do it. 

Life is never smooth sailing and depends on how we accept challenge and seize opportunity. I grew up in an ordinary but nomadic family, first because of my father’s job, and then my husband’s. Life is and has been fun and exhilarating; new places and people but equally challenging where we repeatedly upped-sticks and created new homes. Country, location, language, culture, schools, career and identity.

My real challenge however, was health and the diagnosis of breast cancer in 2012 – something quite out of the blue and without rules to follow. I was lucky though… I had the best health care that I could have wished for; my oncologist bore knowledge and drip-fed information as I needed it but it was still a strange period. A couple friends couldn’t deal with the situation, others supported me at the time and most very quickly forgot which is good; life is back to ‘normal’ yet for me, it’s now very different – thankfully, I learned that I had choice and I feel healthier, both emotionally and physically, than ever before.

I have experienced and learned from many lessons and now understand the full impact of the mind-body connection: how we think underpins our behaviour and how our body reacts…

Registered with The Federation of Nutritional Therapy Practitioners, The American Board of Neuro Linguistic Programming & Hypnotherapy and The Time Line Therapy™ Association, Performance Coaching is a natural choice to follow. It draws from expertise across business, education, food and nutrition and embraces proficiency in working with children, adolescents and adults.

Teacher Training opened the pathway to my sense of purpose and with this, deep understanding of teaching and coaching in multi-cultural environments. Experience reaches across Primary, Secondary and Adult Education and includes The Oslo International School, The Children’s House of Stavanger, The International School of Stavanger, l'Ermitage International School of France, and The British School of Paris.

I am a fully qualified and experienced swimming instructor, practitioner of Reiki and teacher of Mindfulness.

My career began as a Home Economist gaining a coveted college placement at Family Circle Magazine where I developed experience in writing food articles, developing and testing recipes. Ensuing positions built upon this and lead me to the world of business and commerce with Fortnum & Mason of London, General Foods and Kraft Foods. Flexibility created working hours that accommodated raising our children; an irreplaceable time I feel privileged to have experienced where now they are grown and forging their own lives.

I live with my husband in the Paris area where we remain a source of council for our grown-up children. As an expatriate, travel is a natural pastime and continues to be an inspiration for photography, food and cooking. City life and country walks keep me active, yoga for relaxation and balance.
