A little about me
With clients from around the world, I coach in English and French in both personal and professional contexts. Through my coaching, I am committed to making the world a happier place, one person at a time.
I trained in the internationally recognised Co-Active method with The Coaches Training Institute, the first coach training school to have its programmes accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF). It is also with the ICF that I obtained certification as an Associate Certified Coach. I also use methods from a number of other disciplines to offer clients made-to-measure coaching that provides them with the tools they need to overcome obstacles to success, shift their mindset, and create the life they want.
My training was completed while I was in a full-time management position in large-events communications. My decade-long career prior to coming to coaching was diverse. After studying Literature at the University of Cambridge, I worked in theatre promotions in London. Once in Paris, I worked in communications for an industrial technology company and later managed projects for a broad portfolio of CAC 40 clients for a communications agency before specialising in events work.
I was born and educated in Britain, but in 2004 I made my dream to live in Paris a reality. Since making the leap, I have worked hard to create a life I love that can only be described as rich and varied. I have studied in France and worked in a variety of French and international companies. I am a regular contributor to several print and online magazines on personal development subjects with a particular focus on ex-pat living, parenting, and creating a life with purpose, on purpose. I am also a facilitator for seminars and workshops on personal growth and leadership.
I live in the Paris suburbs with my husband and our two children. Contact me
