What makes you passionate about your work?

What makes me passionate about my work is that I get to help people live a better, happier and fulfilling life by bringing them clarity and empowering them to make the changes they need. I also love to witness that moment when they come to a realisation and something clicks for them; when their perception and outlook on their situation changes and they suddenly start seeing new possibilities.



What inspires you most in your work?

What inspires me most about my work is the courage I see in people taking steps to change their lives and the tremendous change they are capable of making when they are willing to face their fears.

My Story

Understanding people and what makes them tick really fascinates me. As far as I can remember I have always been intrigued by how our minds work and why people do what they do. This curiosity comes from my passion for helping people live a better, happier and fulfilling life. I believe that when you can understand someone deeply -understand their views, perspectives, beliefs, situation and who they are truly - it enables you to help them achieve what they want in the best possible way.

Despite my passion with helping people and my fascination about the mind, I found myself going into a career that was completely unrelated. I spent 16 years working in finance before I came to the realisation that I was in the wrong field. I was unfulfilled in a job that was lacking meaning and purpose for me. Ironically, I had spent a lot of time in my life understanding and helping other people but not enough time understanding myself. When that became clear and after reflecting on my career, I knew that I had got to a point in my life where I had to make some important decisions. If I wanted to feel fulfilled in my work, I would have to start following my passions, start doing what made me happy, doing something I was in alignment with and most importantly doing something that was really me. For me all of this came together in a new career as a coach.

I feel that coaching can be very powerful in creating change and I am committed to bringing clarity and balance to achieve this. I believe that everyone has huge potential and feel privileged to be able to help and support individuals tap into their unique power to bring out the best in them. I aim to provide a safe space to enable people to explore who they really are and be true to themselves. I work from a place of empathy and care, listen from the heart and use my intuition to support my clients.
