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' was published in early 2017. 

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

  • 28 Day Self Love Challenge: Saying No

    Many years ago, back in my corporate days, I was part of a management team and responsible for running a large contact centre. One day, there was an emergency meeting to discuss an incident that had happened earlier in the day. The meeting started at 5pm and my shift had finished at 4. I staye...

  • 28 Day Self Love Challenge: Prepare For Take Off

    Almost everyone has travelled by aeroplane at some point in their life. If you are a frequent traveller, then the safety demo at the start of every flight will be familiar to you.

    February has arrived again. And of course, that means Valentine’s Day is just around the corner.

  • Telling the Difference Between Your Inner Critic and Realistic Thinking

    We all have an inner critic. You know the one. It is the voice that says, “you aren’t qualified” or “you aren’t good enough”. There are hundreds of examples, but I bet you know the voice I am talking about. The trouble is, our minds are pretty clever so how can we know when our inner critic is talki...

  • How To Be A Better Boss …

    We can all think of bosses in our past; the ones that have been exceptional and the ones that have been exceptionally poor. It's a tough job. You've got to carry the business, support employees and show some superhuman characteristics in balancing work and life. If your new years resolution...

  • Taking A Look Back At 2017 ...

    At this time of year, I always put some time aside to reflect on the last 12 months. How did they go? What was successful? What was less successful? What do I want to achieve next year?
