My background is in support and care and education – before I got into teaching Special Needs, I worked for many years with adults who have learning difficulties. I have a strong, longstanding interest in mental health (as opposed to mental illness).

 I am particularly interested in working with issues around identity such as

  • Worthiness
  • Values
  • Forgiveness
  • Beliefs
  • Assertiveness

and change processes like

  • Goal setting
  • Motivation
  • Decision making
  • Perspective.

 My approach to coaching is eclectic and carefully chosen – it includes elements of NLP, inner child work, mindfulness, CBT, and positive psychology.

 I believe that every single one of us has value – no matter what.

 One of my favourite tools is art journaling, which combines colourful mark making with the written word to create a unique, personal, and emotionally relevant art object.
