I am an experienced coach and group facilitator, with experience in the health, education and independent sector. I am passionate about people and the challenges they face. I have expertise in wellbeing, emotional resilience and supporting individuals and teams to work in a supportive way to achieve their outcomes.
My approach is creative and curious, with interventions that stimulate and increase self-awareness. This can be seen in my work with expressive writing and the use of photography to help people identify the heart of the issue. I also use somatic coaching techniques which help you notice how you react physically to situations that you find challenging.
I believe that everybody has a story and every story is worth hearing. It is often in the telling of the stories that we gain insight in to what is challenging us.

I believe everybody is creative and using creativity allows for an exploration of issues in a safe and fun way. Some of the ways that I have worked have involved using photography, collage, writing and walking. An element of the Wellbeing Story is Words for Wellbeing and I have experience of running groups in the community and for organisations, for example, Maggie’s Centres. Words for wellbeing can also be run for individuals.
In my own practice, I use writing and journaling and I am often outside taking photographs as a way of relaxing.
