About me:

I am a coach, trainer, runner (Team Sloth!), mother of two and coffee lover! I've experienced a fair few major life events, including the death of my father as a child leading to a susceptibility towards depression,  a miscarriage, breast cancer and alcoholism (sober since 2005). These have made me feel battered many times, but through the other side they have also made me grow and develop and realise I actually have a positive outlook on life. This has all made me eager to support others through their own adversity (adversity is a relative term). I am passionate about my own personal development and through life experiences and formal learning I have a wealth of experiences and knowledge to draw upon. We are all works in progress until the day we die and this is what motivates me to support you. 


I absolutely love learning, and part of my joy of teaching comes from what I learn while preparing for teaching and from those I teach. I use my coaching style and curiosity in training to create an environment to help those I train get the most from the training
