Speaker & Progammes

I'm in my zone when facilitating or speaking at events


I’ve been told that I’m a natural facilitator and an engaging speaker. All I know is that I love doing both.

From keynote speaker slots for corporate clients (e.g. CoOp, International Women’s Day, 2018) to being invited to speak at annual national wellbeing events (e.g. Love Natural Love You, London Olympia, since 2016).

Key themes

There are several themes that I’m particularly passionate about (see the image below on my Personal Leadership model). They all have a connecting thread: helping you getting on that virtuous circle so you can enjoy being the most confident version of yourself.

Here are just a few topics I speak on…

  • Empowering Yourself in 3 Ways
  • Enhancing your Personal Presence
  • Pressing for Progress
  • Reclaiming your Headspace
  • Boosting your Body Image
Book me or suggest a theme

If there are specific ideas you have that aren’t listed, please let me know as I’d happily discuss them with you, or help you find someone more appropriate.


I facilitate face to face workshops and run free and membership-based online programmes.

My training content, see the model below, is based on evidence from psychology, neuroscience and mindful self-compassion, and my own professional and personal experience including perfoming arts techniques. I keep things real (small tweaks can lead to huge changes, and I don’t believe you have to walk on coals to unleash your true potential).

Face to face workshops

My workshops run in a variety of formats: 90-minute lunch & learn sessions for up to 30 employees; half-day interactive workshops for up to 15 attendees; three-day off-site personal leadership development programmes.

I’m in my zone when facilitating discussions, encouraging attendees to learn from each other’s experience, and sharing my own professional and personal experience.

Podcasts & Press

Do you listen to podcasts? (my favourites include the Guilty Feminist @guiltfempod if you like a laugh).


A few life coaches have interviewed me recently on various wellbeing topics. You can listen to my interview with the lovely Sherry Bevan on How to Tame Your Inner Critic.

I had so much to say on the topic of Low Self-Esteem that life coach, Gemma Mcrae, released a two-part episode on her podcast (click here for Part 1 and Part 2).

Coming soon is Nicola Semple’s sharp sense of humour made this up-coming podcast on the Inner Critic a joy to be part of … check back for the link that’s coming in early May.

In Print

My expert opinion is sometimes asked for, so I’ve been featured in women’s magazines (e.g. Boots Health & Beauty magazine, Very.co.uk etc.).
