About me

I believe that you have the answers you seek inside of yourself. My role is to help you rediscover and reconnect with yourself to find those answers that are right for you. My approach often resonates with the sensitive, gifted or unconventional.

I understand business and work issues very well due to my previous senior-level business background. Organisational and business pressures can be very tough and I can help you navigate the options when faced with a very demanding job or stressful work environment. I coach many CEO's of both large and small organisations.

I have a focus on working with Highly Sensitive People (HSPs) and empaths and am listed on Dr Elaine Aron's website. HSPs often suffer from anxiety and depression as the world can overwhelm them. For more details on this and for a link to the HSP test, see the HSP page on my website at or visit Spiritual understanding and seeking is often important for HSPs and I accept all belief systems.

I hold a monthly support group for HSPs as it is invaluable to build resilience, develop your HSP superpowers and meet others like yourself. Register here
