She has dedicated her career to helping leaders bridge the gap between wellbeing theory and practice so that they can be at the top of their game and transform their experience of work and life. Nothing energises her more than seeing leaders unleash new levels of vitality and impact.

As a Health and Wellbeing Coach, she uses skilful questioning, relevant tools and a supportive process to help clients work through challenges and become the masters of their own wellbeing.

Health and wellbeing coaching is non-judgemental and does not involve prescribing, diagnosing or treating. Rather, it is an empowering and growth-oriented two-way process.
