Born in Northern Ireland to a British Father and a French Mother, I had the privilege of growing up in both the UK and the South of France speaking both languages fluently. I have travelled around many countries and lived in Northern Ireland, France, UK, South-Africa and the USA. As a result, I have gained a passion for people and the different life stories they have encountered. I have had the ability through my travelling opportunities to discover, understand and adapt to people's different ways of life; different cultures, diversity, different thinking, different social habits and behaviours.
It is through traveling and meeting people around the world that I am able to use my own experience to help my clients.
I gained a lot of experience working with the Red Cross in the Children's Hospital of Cape Town, South-Africa. I worked closely with children helping them understand and deal with their illness through play therapy.
After completing my degree, I started my career as a French teacher. I first taught GCSE and A level in the private sector and in parallel taught adults in an adult learning setting. I moved on to teaching French in a primary school and became Head of languages.
My husband and I moved to the US for his job which meant putting my career on hold. All a bit daunting as I had never not worked!
In the US, I knew I had to go back to my first love, psychology. So, I decided to undertake my formal training in counselling over there. I started counselling as part of my training and felt a sense of fulfilment. I was finally doing exactly what I was always meant to do. I was happy, we had our two children over there and I was doing the most fulfilling job.
When we came back to the UK, I knew I had to open my own business. Now I work as a life coach helping other people to face their fears, overcome challenges and do what makes them happy, just like I did.
