“So much has been given to me.I have not time to ponder that which has been denied.”

Helen Keller

In 1991 I fulfilled my dream of setting up my own business. This provides me with the flexibility to develop ideas and programmes to make a difference to people and organisations, while having time to develop myself further and have a more balanced life.

In terms of my own background and professional development, there have been several phases in my on-going development. I have been working as a Chartered Occupational Psychologist since 1988. What attracted me into this field was the fact that we spend the majority of life at work and if we are not happy and fulfilled in the work we do or with our working relationships and environment, then it can have a profound affect on contentment and satisfaction in life.

I was interested in finding out for myself and for my clients what makes us tick, what drives our behaviour or hinders us from performing well. What can we do to transform our thoughts, feelings and behaviour and thereby our lives so that we are fulfilled and content.

This resulted in me training as a NLP Master Practitioner and also exploring Transactional Analysis in more depth. I am a pragmatist and also practice what I preach, so if I find new ideas and techniques that work for me they go into my tool kit for future use with clients.

Since 2006 I have been writing on a monthly coaching newsletter, Inspire, to provide hints, tips and ideas on a different topic each month. The biggest challenge is that I find I have to live each topic, which has interesting ramifications for my own life!

In January 2008 my first book ‘Master Your Inner Critic, Release Your Inner Wisdom’ was published. This comes from my own experiences of using techniques I created, and then shared with clients. Mastering my own inner critic has had such a profound impact on my life, I wanted to share the ideas and techniques with others through the book. You don’t have to live with the worry, anxiety, and misery that the inner critic can create. I know from my own and my client’s experiences that mastering the old inner critic can create more happiness, contentment and confidence in ourselves.
