There is a perception in the personal development field, that we need to have a story of pain and tragedy, that as coaches and facilitators, we have overcome. Like most adults, I have experienced pain and misfortune. However, I choose not to let my pain define me or the work that I do. Instead, I choose to come from a sense of power. My mission is to help people have greater harmony within and with others. With insight, compassion and perception, I help people to pause, reflect, shift their perspectives and move forward with insight and clarity. From Individual & Team Coaching to Harmony Circles, Learning Events and Retreats, I help people to grow personally and professionally .
I bring over 27 years of experience in counselling psychology, conflict management, life coaching and developing & delivering workshops. I am energetic and enthusiastic, with a passion for travel, adventure and the outdoors. These passions, combined with a sense of spirituality, frame my views of wellness, the mind-body connection and living and working from a place of harmony.
