The world is full of coaches and supervisors and we are all different. The important thing I think, is finding someone you resonate with and trust. I offer a free 45 minute discovery call for us to explore the possibility of working together and to give you the chance to feel into me as a possible collaborative partner on your journey. In the meantime, here’s a flavour of me:
THE HUMAN STUFF:
I have a big heart that glows love and warmth, and accepts all of whatever you bring
I have a playful side that dances and twinkles and helps you (f)uncover new pathways and insights
I have a strong creative streak (award winning songwriter) that invites you outside the box for inspiration and new perspectives
I’m encouraging yet lovingly challenging in support of your growth
I’m authentic and welcoming of your authenticity
I’m intuitive and insightful and see and feel beyond the words on the surface, helping you to uncover more in less time
I have a well-explored dark side that safely and lovingly holds space for your dark side and shadow exploration
I’m woo-as-f**k for those who want the room to express that side of themselves and be understood, but equally I won't impose my beliefs or world-views on you
THE EXPERIENCE STUFF:
I'm a Trainer at Animas Centre for Coaching, the UK’s #1 coaching school, where I’ve helped hundreds of coaches hone their craft and skill
I'm a Personal and Professional Development coach and visiting lecturer for MBA and Degree level students at Middlesex University.
I spent 10 years teaching music and holding space for suicidal teenagers in CAMHS (Child & Adolescent Mental Health Services), which fostered both my ability to hold robust emotionally intense space, and my comfort with neurodiversity
I have trained with leading Tantra practitioners and alternative thought leaders including Barbara Carrellas, Dossie Easton, Raven Caldera, John Hawken and more ... and I worked as a Tantra facilitator/assistant alongside my partner Rebecca Lowrie, The Sexual Alchemist.

My biggest passion is helping people flourish, and I'd love you to find the help that's right for you. If you’re not feeling me as a potential partner in your explorations, here’s some other places to look:
Bigness: You are never 'too much' here. I am very experienced at holding big energies, whether that's big personalities, big dreams, powerful practitioners, or powerful emotions like elation, anger or grief.
Tears are welcome: You are warmly invited to bring all of your feelings and emotions to our sessions. No holding back required. Coaching is more about moving forward than dwelling on the past, but oftentimes part of that moving forward involves a release of emotions that may be blocking the road ahead, or that just need a safe space to be acknowledged and honoured.
Spirit: Your spiritual nature and inclinations will feel very at home. As well as being a coach, I am an energy healer, amongst other things. As I like to say with a smile – “I speak woo” : )
Shadow exploration and deep acceptance: Any parts of you that you keep hidden will find love and acceptance in our sessions. I have come to love, accept and even see the value in my dark side. As my dark side grows, so too does my heart. As Carl Jung says, you can’t truly accept someone else until you have accepted yourself.
Sex-positive and kink-friendly: All genders, sexual preferences and orientations are welcome here. This is a safe space to bring all of who you are. I have many years of personal and professional exploration and experience in this area.
Creativity: As a musician/songwriter who needs music like most people need air, I welcome artists and creative lunatics of all kinds : )
