After experiencing how powerful life coaching can be to help strengthen my sense of self and achieve my goals, I completed qualifications in life coaching and neuro linguistic programming NLP and have been working as a life coach for over 5 years. It is so rewarding to help my clients turn their lives around and lead happy and fulfilling lives.
One of the most wonderful roles I have had is becoming a mother in 2007. Since then my own learning and research focus has expanded to include child development and parenting. Drawing on my many years of teaching experience and research into learning I have been able to develop practical and innovative approaches to parenting. I am currently completing a forthcoming book on parenting as well as developing a comprehensive program to empower parents in helping their children develop key life skills.
