About me


I am a certified Life Coach in Dumfries who specialises in empowerment and enriching coaching. My passion has always been helping people and my strategy is ‘people mastery’. I am a Business Studies Graduate with over 20 years experience in the financial industry. My direction changed when I worked as a Project Manager for a Mental Health Charity and have since moved into supporting young people in education with their mental health issues. Working with the public for over 35 years has been a huge part of my work experience and has taught me so much about about people, diversity, their experiences, desires and ability to fulfil their potential .


What keeps us stuck? Fear. Fear creates fear and the fear of the unknown stops us from growing. You need to face your fear and take that LEEP. Take a leap of faith in yourself. I did and I have never looked back. Taking that initial step is the hardest thing to do. That’s why I specialise in helping others to become who they want to be; to achieve their burning desires and strive for better place in their life and mind.

I live in Dumfries and am married with 2 grown up children and 1 irrepressibly adolescent 4-legged baby.

In my early 40s I was depressed, exhausted, hated my body and drowned my sorrows in too much wine. I had hit an all time low. I was sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. I was stuck!

Something needed to change.

Why you really want me on your side

I’m like most people, I’ve had to deal with crisis throughout my life; depression, bulimia, debt, stress at work, marriage breakdowns and family tragedies. Through a realignment of my goals and by concentrating on what’s really important, I’ve come out the other side.

My ideas of happiness and success will probably differ from yours but the starting point will be to explore what you really want out of your life. My passion is to inspire you to help you change your life, for the better!
