Spiritual Life Mentor, Intuitive Business Coach & Therapeutic Artist.
I am not a wishy-washy coach. I am a mentor for spiritual women, this is my story, my why, and what led me here.
I wasn't always spiritual.
I used to ignore my gifts. Instead, I was very career-focused in the corporate world, working for Norwich Union as a call centre manager hitting million-pound targets, managing big teams and coaching other regional managers to do the same.
My first business
Feeling a little jaded and unappreciated, when the opportunity for voluntary redundancy came up following ANOTHER merger, I decided to take a leap. Inspired by Sarah Beeny on the TV Show Property Ladder, I started my own property development business. Project managing renovations from the design to digging in and getting my hands dirty.
This was my first experience of running my own business and it is still running today turning over 6 figures each year and keeping my husband very busy! I learned so much on this journey including building my own website before Google was even a common thing. I’ve been in this space a long time and this unusual level of experience benefits the clients I work with today.
I was crushed
Years of mothering
Over the years, as the property business continued to grow, I became a mother to a beautiful, strong preemie baby who needed a lot of care. This opened my eyes to the lack of decent childcare options in my area so seeing a gap in the market, I became an Ofsted inspected ‘Outstanding’ childminder, going on to coach other childminders to get to the same level of excellence.
I still wasn’t done helping children. I had a calling to do more so we became foster carers. Taking care of a beautiful baby boy for the first 18 months of his life was an incredible experience and one I remain grateful for but when he left, I was heartbroken.
My world imploded
It was like I’d lost a child, the grief I felt overpowered me. I spiralled into depression and had a breakdown. I withdrew from family and friends, had a midlife crisis, started drinking, bought a two seater sports car and proceeded to play chicken driving at top speed down country lanes with my eyes closed. I was numb, I didn’t care, I was a victim, I was self absorbed and blocked everyone out.
If I hadn’t almost lost my life to sepsis in 2016, I would have successfully ended my life in some ridiculous and wasteful way. The doctor had told me my heart could stop at any moment, I was in the worst pain of my life and I remember laying on the hospital bed asking the universe to let me die and take the pain away. Instead my husband and daughter came to visit and I had that moment of clarity - what the hell are you doing, you have so much to fight for.

What I Do
Anything is possible!
And fight I did!
When I finally returned to some form of reasonable health (I’ve never been on top form since) I decided to become a tech VA, I didn’t have much confidence or self belief after the breakdown and illness so I only had a couple of clients, I felt like a failure.
I started to do some self development, art, therapy and coaching and had a spiritual reawakening. I was in so much pain but I had found my motivation to live again, this was motivation to lean into the gifts I had been hiding from myself since childhood.
Allowing spirit into my life gave me back my life. Along with my confidence, my self-belief and my resilience.
I could see myself again, with all the years of experience in business, in sales, in art. All the years of finding solutions to impossible problems, of training, coaching, mentoring and supporting others.
And all the pain.
Life hasn’t always been easy but that has given me so much strength and allowed me to genuinely help others.
I chose now to work with other spiritual female women because I am able to utilise my full range of gifts.
I give them;
- Support as they navigate their own journey of grief, loss and healing.
- Down to earth life mentoring, helping them to move forward when they are feeling stuck.
- Practical business guidance, using my vast experience in the business world and running my own business.
- Access to my spiritual guides and intuition which they fully appreciate and understand.
For those of you who want mentoring that is so much more than generic advice, who trust and believe the universe has your back and guided you to this page for a reason, simply book a virtual coffee and let’s chat.
I’ll pop the kettle on.
