Are you ready to feel fabulous, fearless, and ready for your next adventure?

I help busy, professional women to escape from frustrated, miserable, and exhausted to living the life and doing the work that matters most to you.

Why? Because that is exactly where I used to be.

In my 40s, I was a Consultant Anaesthetist, wife and mum to two boys. On the surface I had it all a successful career and a happy life at home. I tried so hard to be perfect at both. I already had the scars from burnout and I knew that I never wanted to do that again. But I was unsure of what I could do. I felt trapped and desperately wanted my life to change.

Deep down I knew that I was unhappy at work but the thought of changing career filled me with fear and shame. It took a while for me to workout that that in order for my life to change, I needed to change. I needed to get brave enough to try new things.

I read so many books, listened to podcasts, attended courses, workshops and gathered knew skills. I effectively coached myself. Boy, did it take a long time. 7 years in fact.

I had never heard of coaching back then but my wiggly career led me to it in the end. And I am so pleased that it did.

Now I use all my knowledge, skills and experience as a doctor, medical educator, mentor and qualified executive coach to help you get there a lot faster than I did!

Are you worried about getting things wrong or doing something that you may regret?

I know all about that one. It took me a long time to decide what to do. I help you to make decisions that align with what matters most to you. When you have the freedom to do that, it is far less scary to step outside your comfort zone and try new things.

If you do nothing then nothing will change.

Do you feel like your life needs a reboot?

At the start of your career there is always the next step waiting for you. You keep taking the steps and progressing. Before you know it you have arrived. In the meantime life gets busier and busier, and your responsibilities change. When it gets stressful, you put your head down and keep plodding on doing the things that you think you should do. You creep closer and closer to burnout. If you ignore the warning signs, like I did, then destination burnout is where you will go.

If you are reading this, then you are one step ahead already. You are ready to reboot what is going on in your life and at work. You are ready to head off burnout and take a different route. 

I will help you to take stock of where you are now and support you as you work out where you would rather be. My coaching method gives you the time and space to focus on your one BIG thing. Then we will work together to find out what is holding you back. I will help you to take the first steps and cheer you on as you make progress. I will keep you accountable when the going gets tough. You will learn new skills that will help you to future proof your plan. So that when our time working together comes to an end, you have the skills to keep going when you face set backs and challenges. 

Is wellbeing yet another task on your long to do list?

Often it is life that gets in the way. If things are not quite right at home then work will feel 10 times harder. Wellbeing promotion is everywhere. It is something that we could all be better at, but it can be hard to do anything more than add it to the bottom of your vast to-do list. 

There is no point telling a busy, working woman that she just needs to do mindfulness, yoga, cardio, strength training, sail through menopause, prepare 3 healthy meals a day, and practice gratitude when everything around you is dragging you down. 

All you want is for the merry-go-round to stop, so that you can step off for a minute and rest.  

 

What if I told you that you don’t have to do it all? 

It is important to sort out the underlying stress in your life so that your wellbeing efforts can actually work. You can choose what works for you and set yourself up for success. It is hard to have a perfectly balanced life, some days work will win and on other days something else will. The most important thing is to notice and make small adjustments where you can.
 
Often making a small change in one area of your life can have a massive impact in other areas. Sorting out what is going on in your life has a positive impact on how you feel about work.
 
I will help you to work out what wellbeing means to you and support you as you implement the changes you want to achieve. You will banish wellbeing overwhelm and sort out what works for you.

Why work with me?

I have had a long and varied career to date. I am passionate about helping others and this is reflected in my career choices and lifelong interest in education, leadership, and a tendency to speak up. 

Learning to fly and gaining a private pilot’s licence in my 40s showed me that I could face my fear and find the courage to try new things. I started to think outside my well-defined box, and I have not looked back.  

I qualified as a doctor 30 years ago, and worked in the NHS for 24 years, with 14 years as Consultant Anaesthetist. 

I experienced a “Mid-career” crisis in 2016, which in hindsight was due to burn out, so I decided to make some major changes. I learned new skills, changed my career, and re-discovered me.  You can read more about that is this blog post. 

Now I enjoy a portfolio career as a certified coach (ILM level 7 certificate for executive and senior coaches and mentors) and as a doctor in the speciality of Aviation Medicine. My career is no longer the single thing that defines me. I am so much more.
