I've been helping people figure out their next steps for more than 20 years. Following a successful career in Supply Chain Team Management guiding career development and performance improvement, I realised my passion was helping people become the best they could be at being themselves.
I qualified in Transformational Coaching and moved to Somerset in 2017 to make my passion a reality. I am also trained in Somatic Coaching, Group Coaching & Facilitation and Existential Coaching.
I started volunteering at the Somerset Suicide Bereavement Support Service (part of Mind in Somerset) shortly after moving here, and now work for both this and another Mind project providing a blend of coaching and emotional support. As part of my work at Mind I have further trained in ASIST - Applied Suicide Intervention Support Training; Bereavement Support (Foundation Course) and Level 2 Mental Health Awareness.
I practice mindfulness daily and am a qualified Pilates Instructor.
I believe we always have a choice, and choosing not to choose is still a choice.
I love exploring new places, walking in nature with my husband and our dog, reading and learning.
Key words used to describe me have been empathic, calm, non-judgemental, and with quiet determined energy.
