About

What do you need to get your life on track, to feel fulfilled, relevant, in control and in the drivers seat? Sometimes we just need a bit of support to get there, an outside eye, a gentle challenge. We always need, and deserve to be treated with sensitivity, respect and dignity. Life is full of challenges, but you don't need to face them alone. Letting someone in can be scary, but you really do deserve to be supported, and you have every right to live a fulfilling, rich and creative life.
I have been professionally supporting people for nearly 2 decades, in a creative, adaptable and sensitive way. My approach is to get alongside you, and offer all I can to help you get what you want from life. I adapt my approach to fit your needs, and draw from years of experience from my own life struggles, and from my professional practice.
This next step can be a real challenge, and can feel like a huge leap of faith. I am very happy to have a little respectful chat, I will be honest with you and tell you outright if I think I can help, I will not waste your time.
