Bespoke Transformation Coaching and Psychotherapy:
With my unique background, experience and training I am in great demand and only work with a select number of coaching clients at any one time.

My bespoke approach of transformation coaching with psychotherapy allows us to get so much further with your desired personal and business outcomes, and especially where long-term habitual responses are not responding to simple ‘mindset’ interventions that other coaches might rely upon.

Contact me for an exploratory discussion to see if we wish to enter into an agreement to work together.
