Certified Life & Career Coach, Entrepreneur and Ideal Life Advocate.
I delight in witnessing my clients’ fulfilment and success after they apply a thorough understanding of themselves to their career and life goals.
Their success is their own, but I’m privileged to facilitate their journey and find it exciting and awe inspiring.
I am a leading life coach, certified and accredited by Martha Beck.
As well as career coaching, I specialise in career development and, specifically, in career change to facilitate life change.
While perhaps best known for the Work Wonderland process, which has helped so many clarify their direction and transform their careers and lives, I also continue to provide personal coaching and people development for individuals and teams.
In a 20-year corporate career I held a number of senior management positions within the communications industry, most recently as Deputy Managing Director, Europe for a global digital marcoms firm. I have consulted some of the world’s leading brands, including IBM, Sony, Huawei, Skype, Philips and Gartner, and I’ve designed and run countless coaching and training programmes for agency teams and clients.
Despite outward success, I wasn’t fulfilled and my transition to a more fulfilling career and a better-balanced life led me to coaching, and taught me the techniques I now use to help others.
I am highly experienced in coaching, training and mentoring, combining insights from corporate and personal coaching work to help bright, spirited people answer ‘What Next?’ with clarity, confidence and control.
I’m the Founder and CEO of Porcupine Collective, a Community Interest Company that helps young people, and others at a crossroads, pursue great careers and fulfilling lives.
My experience has underpinned the design and development of our online programme, Future Builder.
Future Builder assesses all aspects of a person’s character to help them identify careers that align to their personality, strengths and values, giving them the opportunity to consider and insightfully plan their future career and life.
I love the outdoors, all things esoteric, adrenaline-fuelled activities, and I’m Marvel movie obsessed.
Outside of work, I’m likely to be found walking beaches at the crack of dawn; experimenting with the universe and consciousness; trying my hand at paragliding or quad biking; or delighting in the magic of the superhero’s quest!
My husband and I have undergone major changes in our lives; he was based in the City of London, I was for some time based between London and Paris. We lived in Covent Garden and held corporate management roles. We now live on a remote mountainside in Wales, living a life that we dreamed of and working with passion.
