I'm a mum, teacher, accidental author, and speaker. I live in Guildford, Surrey UK with my husband, Paul, a journalist and fellow wildlife gardener and allotment grower, plus our two teens.

I also speak about "Happy Kids What's Resilience Got To Do With It?" and education reform.

Other interests include - storytelling, nature walks, teaching yoga and mindfulness to kids, personal development, travel, entrepreneurship, innovation, spirituality, technology and systems thinking.

You'll also find me cheerleading for Thortspace & co-leading Business Buzz Surrey

I have a ​BA Hons 2.1 in Psychology & Education and a lifelong passion in human potential and what makes people tick (which turns out not to be stickers and reward charts). I use a myriad of coaching tools and techniques and particularly enjoy playing with metaphor to catalyse state change.
