About Me

I help my clients to feel heard and be heard. Feeling heard can help you feel valued, better understood and appreciated for who you are. I offer time and space to discuss past and present situations, develop self-awareness and confidence and the strength to resolve current challenges and enhance lives. I help clients be heard by empowering and enhancing their communication, so that they can speak effectively, present themselves and their ideas confidently whether at home or at work, whether one to one or one to a group.

Clients tell me that:

  • they feel very safe and comfortable with me
  • they can tell me anything without fear of being judged or ashamed
  • I deliver effective, fun and dynamic training

I have a reputation for:

warmth : intuition : empathy : compassion : kindness : excellent delivery : enthusiasm : energy : encouragement : knowledge : skill

I help my clients to feel heard and be heard through counselling, coaching, training and public speaking.
