I’m a certified coach, and I help mums navigate the many parenting challenges of family life, so that they can enjoy time with their children and be the sort of parent they want to be.  


Before I started coaching, I was a teacher for over 15 years, as well as working in recruitment for a couple of years.  During most of that time, I have been juggling the demands of family life, as we have 3 boys (the first two are twins, which was quite a learning curve!).  


For many years I worked with the 7-11 age range, as a class teacher, subject teacher, and sports coach, responsible for the children academically and pastorally.  As well as working with the children I would support the parents, helping them to help their child thrive.

Once the twins were teenagers I realised I needed a new challenge so I retrained as a coach and and I'm now using all the knowledge I've gathered through teaching, coaching and parenting to help parents.

I am a certified coach as I completed the Barefoot Business and Personal Coaching course, and I am also a qualified teacher as I was awarded my PGCE from Cambridge University at the start of my teaching career.  I am a member of the ICF, follow their guidelines and am committed to CPD. ​
