Conscious career coach and life purpose guide, passionate about reconnecting mid-life women to the source of their wisdom and power. Focusing is the missing link that enables confidence, clarity, and provides multiple "aha" moments and actual shifts when you are in the midst of change.

What services do I offer?

1. Felt-sense-oriented career coaching for women wanting to put flourishing and fulfilment front and center in their lives.

A blend of pragmatic "real world change" coaching techniques with the profound “arising-from-within” self-understanding and aligned actions that emerge from Focusing.

We’re bombarded with other people’s ideas and opinions, outside voices that distract and confuse us. Of course you need advice and mentoring in your career or business, but you also need to be able to connect to your inner compass, find your own direction, and think freshly about your situations.

2. Purely Focusing:

~ Find Your Poise - a 4 week one to one live programme of Focusing teaching and guidance with a focus on reducing stress and finding calm.
~ Guided Focusing Sessions
~ Focusing Teaching for Individuals
~ Introductory Focusing Workshops

In person and via video-conferencing or telephone

My background in Focusing

Focusing has made a huge difference to my life, both personally and professionally.

It's helped me develop self-belief, get clear on what I want for my practice, and got me out of the very stuck place I was in where I felt confused, direction-less, and disempowered in my work-life.

It was not at all how I’d imagined working for myself would be when I left investment banking to become a therapist! Instead of feeling fulfilled, I felt burnt out and like I was always sabotaging myself.

Focusing has helped me feel solid, grounded, empowered, and deeply resourced as a business owner, as a coach, ...and as a woman of a certain age dealing with all the life changes that come as you get into your 50s.

I've learned that I can rely on my "inner compass" for fresh thinking, and wisdom about my situations. For many years I've read about "the wise woman within". Now I know how to access and invoke her.

This is why I do the work I do:

Too many corporate women who want a more fulfilling career doing meaningful work, are stuck in their heads, struggling with a tangled combination of lack of self-belief and lack of direction, not knowing who they are without their corporate id, and split off from significant parts of themselves.

At 50, facing redundancy, they want clarity and confidence that they’re taking their right path. And they’re done waiting.

Through combining coaching and Focusing, I teach them to connect with their own “inner compass”, coach their mission for this new chapter, and stepping into their power and resources as their own boss, so they too can flourish and, finally, be fulfilled at work.
