Welcome!

I use this space to offer advice, guidance and inspiration to women in all areas of their life, whether this is reflections on relationships, wise words about work-life balance, career considerations or the latest goings on - as they happen in my world. 

My first book 'Suddenly Single' will be published in early 2017. Stay tuned for updates!

In the mean time, please feel free to contact me if you are looking for professional or personal support.

  • How To Start Living The Life You Want ... But Think You Cannot Have.
