Career Coaching

Are you looking to develop and retain talent within your business?


Whether it's leadership development, career mapping, or in-role impact, coaching can unlock the potential within your people.


Working with an external and impartial coach in a fully confidential environment allows people the unique opportunity to fully explore and address the barriers to their success.

I provide 1-1 and group coaching to help people maximise their impact and satisfaction at work for the benefit of the individual, team and organisation.

Wellbeing Coaching

From stress management to diet and exercise, wellbeing in and out of work underpins everything we do: It is the difference between optimal performance and eventual burnout. 


I'm a Registered Nutritionist with a degree in Sport Science and a masters in Human Nutrition.  I also have years of experience in the wellness industry and the corporate world so I understand the science and challenges of wellbeing. 


Working with you or your team I'll build awareness of the triggers and barriers affecting personal wellbeing and help you identify the changes you want to make to be at your best.

Life Coaching

Do you feel driven to make a change?


You may have a specific goal you're working towards in your career or personal life and feel you're not making the progress you want.  Or maybe you feel compelled to try something new but don't know where to start.


A fresh, independent perspective can make all the difference.


I provide an open, reflective and positively challenging environment to help you discover the right path for you.


Product Development Consulting

I provide direct training and support in a number of areas associated with end to end product development and the nutrition market.

Working within the food and nutrition industry for over 10 years in Marketing, Innovation, Technical, Project Management and Product Development roles has given me the opportunity to create, develop and launch many new products and brands.


My experience has taught me the criticality of communicating complex science simply, whilst utilising robust tools for product appraisal and delivery in order to generate, shortlist and develop the most viable business opportunities.

I offer businesses support in the following areas:

End to End Product Development

Innovation & Concept Creation


Project Set Up


Vitamins, Minerals & Sports Nutrition - Scientific Expertise

Beyond Coaching...

Beyond coaching clients I lead an active lifestyle and enjoy challenging myself.  


I read as much as I can to learn, absorb new ideas and gain alternative perspectives to help me grow as an individual and improve as a coach.


I like to keep fit and have completed a number of marathons, half marathons and adventure races.  I also have a long-standing interest in martial arts and and train regularly in aikido.

Travel is a big personal passion and through it I have developed a love for photography.
