The purpose of coaching is to support you to achieve your goals. I would be privileged to work with you if you are seeking growth and progression in any area of your life.

Work With Me

I was diagnosed with the chronically debilitating illness of Crohn’s Disease in 2005 which was a heartbreaking time for me and my family but I decided this would never stop me from achieving my dreams. I spent the top half of my career in the private sector before moving into primary education working as a teacher for the last 12 years. I have loved working with children and during my leadership career, it became clear that coaching and supporting adults to be their best selves, getting them to prove what’s possible in their own lives and helping them overcome beliefs that are holding them back is my core purpose in life. I am passionate about using my own personal experiences to add value and help people with challenges they are currently facing, particularly if they are embarrassed about their bodies following surgery, illness or injury.


When I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease in 2005, I remember being prescribed a cocktail of steroids and anti-inflammatory medication and had an ileostomy surgery, a stoma and the reversal surgery a few months later in an attempt to fix my broken body. I had to quickly accept my new reality and learnt from the most compassionate nurses how to care for my stoma and deal with an iloestomy bag. When I look back at my 25 year old self, I am incredibly proud of how I accepted my situation and learnt to adapt so admirably at a young age. Over the last 12 years, I have learnt how to deal with a stoma, look after my open wounds as they trialled new surgical techniques, cared for my scars, improved my diet, maintained a healthy mindful practice and exercise regularly in order to feel good about myself. I am told that I look younger than I am (maybe it’s all that olive oil!) and I feel motivated every day to honour my body and take pride in my appearance which makes me feel confident and sexy.

I am passionate about seeing people overcome internal barriers and make progress in their lives, so if you are feeling embarrassed about your body, I will empower you to feel confident, sexy and live a life you are passionate about. You will learn to overcome any negative thoughts holding you back and feel truly liberated as you start to not only accept but embrace yourself fully enabling you to live a life you love with confidence. 

Receiving genuinely positive feedback from clients, letting me know how coaching with me has had a tremendous impact on their lives is truly fulfilling and ultimately, is the reason I do what I do. Please read the testimonial page of this website for further inspiration.
