I was a driven, high performing organsiational and professional development leader who was constanly giving more; more effort, more thinking, more knowledge, more skills, more time. I was succeeding on the outside but on the inside I was stressed, overwhelmed and exhausted.
After years of giving 110% I crashed with chronic fatigue and was forced to redefine what it takes to do well in work and life. I came across an understanding of the mind and human potential which turned things on their head for me and changed every aspect of my work and my life.
By understanding the psychological principles behind life I saw that we are designed for success and when we see this we are able to access the benefits of flowing with and not against the design.
I am passionate about sharing this understanding and guiding people to access this potential and natural momentum for themselves so the can feel more peaceful on the inside and more impactful on the outside.
I have looked at leadership and human potential from a wide variety of perspectives from over 20 years working, studying and living throughout Australasia and Europe.
I worked in senior internal Human Resources roles in corporations such as Ford Motor Company and Deloitte and as a Director of a global Leadership Consultancy coaching and developing clients such as GlaxoSmithKline, Sony and Government Departments.
I co-founded a corporate wellbeing business called Wellineux, wrote two personal development books and for the last 10 years have been running my own coaching and consulting practice.
I partner with entrepreneurs, solopreneurs and leaders who are looking to transform their experience of work and the impact they make. I work with people who are looking for greater peace of mind and resilience as they navigate their lives. I support children, parents and teachers as we raise the next generation to tap into their wellbeing and resilience.
