I work with both individuals and groups using a person-centred approach. 

I use coaching techniques in all areas of my practice, focusing on taking small steps to successfully deal with change, improve resilience and achieve big changes in levels of well-being. As well as life coaching and mindfulness, I can  introduce you to other techniques, such as focusing, that will help you to feel calm. 

For nearly 20 years I have been supporting healthcare professionals to maintain equilibrium. My aim is always to equip those I work with with skills and coping strategies that enable them to manage their own physical and emotional well-being through self-care. 

I have lived well with Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) for more than 20 years, so I completely "get" that changing your lifestyle to promote your own mental health and manage your stress levels better is a big deal. Coaching helped me to turn things around when life got too much; I qualified as a life coach in 2005. 

Please contact me for more information about 1:2:1 sessions, and courses about stress management. I am comfortable working in both the virtual world or face-to-face and am happy to offer 1/2 hour discovery sessions as a way of starting out. I have a lot of experience of creating and delivering e-learning packages. 

About me

I am a physiologist by profession, an academic by vocation and author, coach and podcaster by passion. 

I graduated with a BSc(Hons) in Physiology from the University of Glasgow in 1978 and a PhD in physiology and medicine from Southampton University in 1982. Becoming a single mother led to a change in career from laboratory physiology; I became an antenatal educator, a Yoga teacher and also began supporting women with post-natal depression and those who had experienced traumatic births.

Some years later, I started my third career teaching healthcare professionals - nurses, midwives, medics, paramedics, psychologists, therapists - becoming a Senior Lecturer in 1997.  Although recently (2021) retired from the University of East Anglia, I continue to be a full member of the Physiological Society, the British Association of Sports and Exercise Scientists (BASES), the Biosceinces for Nurse Education (BiNE) group of Higher Education Academy and I am proud to be a Fellow of ISMA.  I am the author of many articles and publications and contributing author for three textbooks for healthcare professionals.

My approach is influenced by Howard Benson's work on the relaxation response, Eugene Gendlin's work on focusing and evidence from health sciences. More recently my approach has been informed by evidence-based innovation such as the Stress Continuum and Stress First Aid framework, so I am keen to share my experience with you!
