Life & Leadership Coach

Imagine More, Be More

What do you want to change today?

What is getting in your way?

If you’re looking for a life coach because you feel it is time to grow & move forward as a leader, increase your confidence, or help guide you through life changes, choices, and/or transitions, you are in the right place.

You don’t have to feel held back, stuck, or uncertain.

I am a trained professional Life & Leadership Coach who has relocated from the UK to the US. Before relocating I practiced as a therapist for many years, which provides me with unique insight and perspective for my coaching practice. I now live in the Raleigh, North Carolina area and work with clients locally as well as throughout the US.
