I am considered by many, as an inspirational and energetic Master Wellness Coach.
My passion is to widely share my experience, knowledge, and skills to empower individuals in their journey of transformation towards a better life.
During my portfolio career spanning over 40 years, I have founded and developed several successful businesses (my first aged 22) and worked as a consultant across a variety of sectors including retail, manufacturing, construction, music and film, charity, public sector, and professional services. A seasoned CEO and Chief Operating Officer with multi-million-pound budget and staff responsibilities, I have always believed that the team members are the most important aspect of any organisation, and should be supported, inspired and encouraged to achieve their maximum potential – even if this means losing them in time as they grow and spread their wings.
Highly qualified in business, coaching, mentoring, psychology, nutrition, and an expert in DISC Behavioural Profiling, I have developed a model to support families and those with a serious health diagnosis to fast-track the journey to wellness.
A four-time cancer survivor who also beat serious kidney disease naturally, I am a volunteer mentor for individuals with cancer and guide them towards recovery using an integrative approach.
Born in a small village in Derbyshire, UK and raised on the edge of Essex and London, my mother said that I had lived the lives of three people by the time I was 25.
Three times married, and a grandmother of two teenage boys, I have experienced more than most people in my life. Topics such as domestic violence, the death of my father at a young age, bankruptcy, suicide, death of my granddaughter, living in a household with autism, and other challenges, have all crafted me into the strong woman I am today. Alongside these experiences, I have learned so much, which I share through mentoring and inspiring others, to achieve and maintain their best self.
Many adversities in life can produce silver linings….we just need to look a little harder sometimes, and keep an open mind to possibilities.
I host a weekly health radio show on www.elasticfm.com every Tuesday from 4-6pm, am a keynote speaker and have published 6 books including 2 x Amazon #1 bestsellers.
Living in North Wiltshire, on the edge of the beautiful Cotswolds, and Portugal I walk my talk and live life to the full, for which I am grateful every single day.
