My approach is to use existing strengths to build new strengths. My students set their agenda. I guide, teach, and mentor students using a variety of different strategies to help them reach their objectives. Exploring needs and interests will be a significant part of this journey to building self-awareness and confidence.
I have been in public and private education for the last 35 years. My qualifications are; a teaching degree, Master degree in education, as well as professional coaching and counselling certification. I have taught and supported over a thousand students over the years.
When I hear from students now, they share their gratitude with me.

After working for years in public and private schools as a counsellor, special education teacher, and team leader, I am now in private practice working with adults. The counselling and coaching I offer is strength-based and solution-focused, using the most effective approaches from a variety of different modalities, such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, career coaching, and art coaching.
The coaching I offer is suitable for anyone encountering challenges or barriers which prevent meeting professional or personal objectives. I work collaboratively with the clients based on their own needs and agenda thus enabling fundamental shifts to achieve success.
