Combining two decades of personal and professional experience, I guide conversations to investigate, question and challenge current thinking. This creates clarity and positively influences behaviours and emotional responsiveness to achieve your wellbeing goals.
Using a multidisciplinary approach, based on modern coaching practices and psychological theory I guide conversations to achieve client directed outcomes. A safe and mutually respectful environment creates the opportunity to understand current situations and identify new approaches. These strategies support you in current challenges, conflict or gaps in learning enabling individual skills development.
My life started with disadvantage that included poverty, instability and youth homelessness. It left with me with a legacy where I questioned my self-worth, was disconnected from others, did not feel a sense of belonging within myself or the community. Looking back, as I was a child, I had no capacity to understand how I was going to get from one day to the next. For many years I did not know who I was. I did what I could, with what I had. My life was a legacy of others choices, and I was desperate to find myself and to find a way out.
Somehow as a teenager, I followed a somewhat predictable pathway. I finished my education, learnt from life experiences and gained meaningful employment. I held a socially acceptable role in the community. I started my real life, or so I thought. As a professional, I wasted many years attempting to prove my self-worth. I jumped from one place of unhappiness to another, never really realising my worth. I was pretending to be something I was not. For years this was my struggle, until further personal crisis forced me to confront my unhappiness head on. When I chose to do this, it opened the door to becoming more skilled at life and overcoming fear of failure and failure itself. My whole life was transformed and with my professional experience, I have become an expert at navigating life transitions, challenges and changes and adept at life skills development.
My observations are that there are many individuals, who just like me have struggled for years. I now support individuals like you, to live your real life.
With an educational background in Health Service Management, Clinical Research and Audit and Life and Behavioural Coaching, and with continuing professional development in psychology, mental health and wellbeing, I will continue to enable individuals to build these critical life skills.
