A few things about me...

My husband, two young daughters, our sweet Golden Retriever Leo and I live on the outskirts of a small village near the picturesque town of Baden in Switzerland.

Originally from Australia, I spent my formative years in Brisbane and Sydney and moved to Switzerland when I was 30.

At the age of 23, I immersed myself in Japanese culture, living in Japan to enhance my language skills and fulfil a lifelong fascination.

Exploring the Alps and uncovering the wonders of Europe with my family brings me immense joy.

I graduated from my MSc Applied Positive Psychology & Coaching Psychology at the age of 47 and am on track to earning a Chartership of Coaching Psychology.

Then I’d like to invite you to a free consultation!

Whether you’re looking for more meaning and wellbeing in your career and work life, or you are a leader desiring to develop your own authentic leadership style, my mission is to support you to thrive at work.


I work with individuals worldwide to support them in achieving their professional goals; and with organisations and their leaders, to ensure that their employees are both engaged and thriving within their working environment.

My Experience

My desire to help individuals thrive at work stems from challenges that I’ve experienced throughout my own career.

 

From these challenges, I’ve discovered and implemented effective solutions and now seek to support others to do the same.

I am so happy to have found a career that is absolutely in alignment with my personal values, strengths and interests.

I gain so much energy, joy and satisfaction from coaching others and observing as my clients benefit from the process.

I have more than 15 years of coaching experience: senior leaders to CEO level in my former Communications and Engagement roles; and individuals with their career challenges, as an in-house Career Coach and in my coaching practice.

I’ve seen first-hand the incredible transformative results that coaching can have. My clients, who are located worldwide, have all achieved results that were beyond their expectations. I’ve also experienced many hours as a coaching client, and have made positive life-changing decisions as a result. I’ll continue to work with my own wonderful coaches who support me to be the best version of myself.
