About Me

I am a coach, motivational speaker and author and am passionate about changing lives with my heart and my words. My book, Strip Naked & Re-Dress With Happiness, How To Survive & Thrive Through Personal Challenge is evidence that I use my own life experiences to help others live the best possible life. Having been through some significant personal challenges within my own life, I and walking, talking proof that what I teach works! I firmly believe that adversity doesn't break you, it makes you. (But that's a choice).

I travel all over the UK, not only coaching, but speaking. I am a highly experienced speaker, able to captivated and educate audidences of all sizes. I also train other coaches to present powerfully, in order to effectively share their message, and promote their business.

Delivering personal development workshops and seminars also forms a large part of my work. I have delivered training for many organisations and also deliver my own Naked Power 2 day transformational events.

Within schools I have vast experience training and coaching teachers. I am also an experienced school speaker and deliver transformational work-shops for secondary school students.

I also have a talent for 'bringing the heart' back to business, and both coach and train within this field.

Though working primarily within the UK, I also work with a constant stream of clients globally via Skype.
