About me

Do you currently feel stuck or confused, anxious or fearful, emotionally numb, frustrated or restrained, under achieving, without clear identity, low in self-confidence or esteem, lacking purpose, grief or regret, depressed or hopeless, anger, lost or trapped in the past?                   

Do you want to feel empowered & full of clarity, calm & peaceful, emotionally aware & connected, unfettered and free, high achieving, full of self-worth & belief, a strong sense of purpose & identity, healed, joyful & hopeful, composed, focused on the present & future, less self-judgement? The Clarity is the place for you.

I am a deeply committed & motivated professional who believes strongly in the potential in us all to find happiness, peace, success and self-growth. My psychotherapy & coaching create the space & opportunity to transform your life & enable you to feel full of clarity, hope & achieve success.

Imagine a unique and deep relationship where the whole focus is on you, on uncovering what your challenges and demons are, what you want in your life and how to achieve it. This is what psychotherapy and coaching with me can deliver. If this sounds like the right path for you, please contact me on the below details to have an exploratory chat.

I have worked within the Banking sector as a senior HR professional for sixteen years, providing coaching, negotiation and conciliation support throughout that time. I am also an accredited Transformational Coach with Animas, which is recognised by the International Coaching Federation (ICF). My coaching experience has involved working with a diversity of clients with the following challenges: business set-up and planning, value-set re-evaluation, low self-esteem and anxiety, life crossroad challenges and self-confidence issues.

Corporate Work experience

I have worked in a fast paced and high stress environment in the City for 16 years in numerous HR Leadership roles. Within this environment I have worked with top leadership teams, looking after customer bases of up to 5000 employees at a time.
