My Story

I offer professional coaching and counselling services. My ‘Life is Living with Purpose’ programs are unique to each client – in every case, my speciality is helping my clients to discover a greater sense of meaning and purpose in all areas of their lives.

With over 20 years of experience as a Business and Life Coach, I offer professional coaching and counselling services to busy professionals like you. My speciality is helping my clients discover a greater sense of meaning and purpose in all areas of their lives.

Purpose isn’t just about doing the thing you love to do. It’s about sharing your wisdom and knowledge with those people who will be here long after you’ve gone.

Living your purpose is your legacy and gift to your family, for generations to come.

Suffering from COVID-19 in March 2020, and with all the noise of the media murmuring that COVID-19 could result in death, I realised that I didn’t want to die with ‘my song still in me’.

I know what it is like to plunge into the depths of despair. Suffering from COVID-19 was most definitely not the first major challenge I have faced in my life.

I have been divorced twice, left broken and alone with my daughter. At the age of 30 I had a devastating ice-skating accident which left me in agony and confined to a wheelchair for two years. I have had two near death experiences and a stroke.

The ice-skating accident and an ensuing surgical procedure which went badly wrong meant that I spent two months in hospital. I lost my high-powered job at McKinsey’s, a lot of my friends, and my marriage suffered badly. With medical experts giving me no hope of recovery, I plummeted into a deep depression and lost the sense that my life had any purpose beyond the suffering I was experiencing.

THEN CAME THE LIGHT BULB MOMENT

I was out with family and friends in the Peak District. As I sat in my wheelchair at the bottom of a hill, watching the people I cared about walk up a hill without me, it struck me that the situation was a metaphor for just how far I had sunk in my life.


The image swamped me with an overwhelming sense of grief, but also made me resolve to do whatever it took to get back to the top as my inner wisdom said, “If it’s meant to be then it’s up to me.”


I gained a new thirst for knowledge, taking up courses in reiki, counselling, laughter therapy and life coaching. I also embarked on a deep journey of spiritual discovery – exploring who I really was and deciding to start living on a moment by moment basis to be the best I could be.


I realised that in helping others I could also help myself. It was at this point in 2004 that Life is Living with Purpose was born.


Over the years I have coached people from all walks of life, been a mentor to many more, and built a reputation as an inspirational international speaker. I am delighted that I have been able to help hundreds of other people heal themselves and identify their true life’s purpose.


I help my clients to get crystal-clear on their life and career purpose. I quickly get to the heart of the matter and help my clients to work through stress, overwhelm and burnout. Together we develop a plan to solve your presenting issues and to help you feel re-inspired in your everyday life and work so that you can truly live a fulfilled and happy life.


My COVID-19 experience has meant that I am even more determined to live my purpose and help all my clients to live theirs. No-one should ever die feeling that their ‘song is still in them’.
