I’m so glad
you are here
You didn’t start your business just to chase the money and status.
You wanted to follow your passion, step into your calling and make a difference – all without the striving and pushing that’s brought you success before.
I see you
You started out full of enthusiasm about building your business yet now you are feeling frustrated and a little bit jaded.
You’ve been doing this business thing for a while now and you’re not where you want to be. Everyone around you seems to be creating the success you desire and you’re probably beating yourself up for not achieving more.
You know you are talented and have something to offer but you are starting to wonder if you’re really cut out to be an entrepreneur and whether you’ll ever get to live your purpose. I understand, I was there too.
But I want you to know that there is nothing wrong with you!
There are many paths to success but only one that is right for you
Over the years I have seen a few key areas that holds small business owners and independent professionals back from achieving the business, lifestyle and impact they crave
- following a strategy that doesn’t play to your gifts and genius
- the identity you hold of yourself in relation to your business
- your relationship with money and wealth
The combination of these will keep you stuck, frustrated and feeling like a failure.
Yet when you align to your gifts and genius and follow a strategy that’s right for you. You will start to get into flow in your business. Things become lighter, easier and more fun.
When you start seeing yourself as a successful business owner by tapping into your purpose, your power and what you stand for, you will shift your beliefs about what is possible for you.
And when you dig deep into your relationship with money (even if you have earned a lot before) and remove those blocks, wealth will start to flow.
I believe that in this day it is possible for us all to do work that~
is fulfilling and rewarding, do it in a way that integrates with our lifestyle…and get richly rewarded for it
I spent 20+ years as an accountant and senior leader in the corporate arena and most of the time I loved my job. Yet looking back there were times I clashed with my bosses when I didn’t have the autonomy I wanted, and every day of my holiday entitlement was spent travelling somewhere in the world.
Freedom and independence meant a lot to me.

I’m drawn to work with enlightened entrepreneurs and change-makers – professionals, business owners and entrepreneurs who want to live and lead consciously and purposefully.
I help you to be more authentic in your work, your leadership and your life. To create success on your terms – whatever that may look like, and to nurture yourself so you have the energy and resources to make the positive impact you are here to make.
In particular I help you to re-connect with your values, your passions and your priorities in life, and to live and lead from there – with intention and purpose. To discover, package, price and present your unique brilliance out into the world.
I believe we all have greatness within us, yet we bury this deep inside to conform with society and the world around us and to stay safe. Now many of those structures are breaking down. We are looking for new leaders to emerge and true leadership starts with who you are BEING from the inside out.
Now is your time to be the authentic and conscious change-maker you are here to be so that together we can make the world a better place to live.
I take a very holistic approach to working with my clients, helping you create both the career or business you desire, the lifestyle that works for you and that sense of meaning and impact you crave. By aligning to the truth of who you are, what you are here to do and why it matters, you become the leader you are truly meant to be.
I started my career by training as a professional accountant and spent over 20 years climbing the corporate ladder to achieve success. I worked in finance for large UK and global blue chip companies then moved into project and change management working on business process re-engineering and finance transformation programmes.
At times I was in flow and loved my job, but at other times I was misaligned, struggled and felt I was always pushing. I found that building success in my career meant a lot of sacrifice – long hours, high pressure and in the end, compromising my values. My health, relationship and lifestyle were suffering and I knew it needed to change.
Don’t get me wrong, I gained a lot from my corporate career. I was a leader to over 50 people and I loved building high performing teams by tapping into their strengths. I also built wealth from this path so that I could be financially independent.
Ultimately I made a corporate escape to re-connect to my interests and passions, live life on my terms and to make a difference in the world through serving others without sacrifice and compromise.
Although I initially started out on the right path – helping other professionals with their career, I soon got sucked into doing things that weren’t right for me without realising it. I could sense inside the feeling of restlessness but couldn’t work out what it was. Now I know that I was out of alignment again.
It was only by doing the deep inner work, I was able to re-connect to my talents, values and purpose, and now I know I’m doing the work I am here to do. Helping other passionate and caring entrepreneurs and change-makers unlock the wealth within and bring their talents, gifts and genius out into the world so they can make the difference they are here to make.
I have interests in many things but my primary passions are personal development, travel – I love exploring people and places, business systems and strategies, productivity and performance, and health and wellbeing. More recently I have gained a fascination for metaphysics and universal principles of success.
My core values include freedom, independence, harmony, responsibility, respect, fairness and loyalty. I’m also a life long learner.
Others have described me as determined, trustworthy, dependable, empathetic, supportive, down to earth and approachable. Although very practical I’ve come to accept that I can use my intuition to tune into what seems right for my clients and conversely when they are heading in the direction that doesn’t seem right for them.
Although gentle in nature, I won’t let my clients off the hook. I’m committed to seeing them succeed at obtaining their true desires in both their personal and professional lives.
I’m driven to see people align to their Soul path to success because when we are aligned to our true purpose we create positive change and make this world a better place to live.
I was a Fellow of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants, being a member for over 25 years and worked within the financial services industry for most of that time. This has given me a strong focus on the practical side of business. I have held senior leadership positions culminating in being Group Head of Finance for a global insurer. I’ve built and led high performing teams to deliver results and change as well as working as a management consultant on transformation programmes.
During this time I attended Cranfield University School of Management on leadership.
I’m an associate member of the Association of Coaching and have the following professional qualifications:
- Personal Performance Coach,
- Corporate & Executive Coach,
- Licensed Career Coach,
- Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Diploma
Along the way I have also trained in: City & Guilds Teacher Training, The Pilates Method and Emotional Freedom Technique.
Recently I partnered with the Entrepreneurs Institute and I am now a Flow Consultant licensed to deliver and debrief Talent & Wealth Dynamics profiles and I am also an Accredited Mentor on their platform GeniusU.
I now use my skills, talents, knowledge and genius to help others find theirs and to live and lead from the inside out – intentionally, purposefully, consciously; whilst creating the lifestyle to support them in their mission.
I’m an explorer at heart. I love to travel and explore new places and so far, I have been to over 50 countries. I love the culture, the history, the people and the stunning sites.
I also enjoy exploring what makes people tick and engaging in deep conversations about life, the world, the universe and more. I am just fascinated by how everything works.
I love to eat out with friends, go for walks in nature, and I am a regular at the gym although I mostly do swimming, yoga and Pilates these days.
After 26 years together my partner Geoff and I finally got married a few years ago. A quiet yet fun affair with just two witnesses. We told our parents and family the following week.
Although I live in the UK, in recent years I have also spent about a third of the year in Spain where I have my second home.
Being a footie fan you will also often find me down at the Bridge watching my team Chelsea.
Over the years I have attracted a large number of teddy bears and other furry animals who are now living in my home. Many started out coming to work with me but eventually they ended up retiring and having more fun.
Four of them are great travellers and travel with us all over the world.
A few are footie fans and one introduced me to Chelsea many years ago. Another is a Malaga fan and that is now my adopted Spanish team who I’ve seen play a few times.
The “gang” keeps on growing, although two did emigrate to Australia many years ago after a trip there and have never returned, preferring the way of life “down under”.
We all have an “inner child”. How do you express yours?
