“What’s your biggest fear?”
- Emma Watson, The Circle
What I want you to know...
Writing this felt like climbing Mount Everest. (Not that I’ve ever done that, but I imagine it’s almost as hard as writing an About Page.) The reason it felt so hard is because it actually brings me to tears when I so much as think about the strong, creative, intelligent, whip-smart women like you who don’t believe in themselves. And dismiss your dreams as a result. And let your clients dictate your time and energy. And feel absolutely exhausted. And are getting increasingly stuck and confused.
’Why isn’t this working?’ ‘Surely it shouldn’t be THIS hard?’ ‘Maybe I’m not cut out for this?’ ‘Is SHE the exception but I’m just the rule?’ 'What have I let myself in for?!'
Believe me when I say: you are the exception. Exceptional. Extraordinary. Extra-incredible.
But you have to start believing it first.
Your life is a reflection of the way you feel about yourself.
The way you talk to yourself. The thoughts you have. What you’ve been taught about money, men, women, relationships, yourself. All of this dictates how your life and business is going to go.
So it has to begin with these foundations.
I’m here to help you take your uncertainty, your doubts, your overwhelm, and transform them into game-changing brilliance. So you can fully own who you are, and what you’re here in the world to do, be and have.
You are worthy of everything you desire. You’re special (and not just cos’ your Momma said so), you’re bright, creative, talented as all hell, and deep down you know it.
But it’s gotten a little lost along the way. You don’t know where to begin in re-igniting it. You know something has to change but you don’t know what to do next.
So you do the same thing over and over and over again, willing yourself that ‘soon’ you’ll end the contract with that soul-sucking client, or ‘one day’ you’ll pursue that creative venture that sets your heart alight, or ‘next year’ you’ll get your website up and get better at being visible online.
All the while forgetting that you’re the boss - of your time, of your energy, of your life - and you get to CHOOSE. Now.
So it’s time to turn things around, and that’s exactly what I'm here for.
I believe in you. (Like, a LOT. You freaking superstar!) And I’m here to help you believe in you too.

You have found 'the Other About Page'. Hey, I’m a writer and speaker too, and I don’t always know when to stop...
It might be a cliche that anything is possible, but I truly believe that it is.
Though naturally, I haven’t always believed this.
Three years ago you’d have found me lying on the kitchen floor sobbing my heart out and wondering if I could make my business work. I was crippled by anxiety, uncertainty, comparison, confusion, and a dwindling bank account.
I was two interviews in to slinking back to my corporate job after a year of travel.
I thought it was my only option.
Just as I was crafting my response email to the corporate role, as the Universe had it, I got the offer of not one but TWO regular monthly freelancing gigs. And it was enough to turn the corporate role down.
Sometimes, all you need is the confidence and trust in yourself to take a chance.
Since then, through a little blood, a lot of sweat and a few more tear-filled radiator hugging moments, I’ve built a thriving copywriting and social media consultancy, a thriving coaching practice, have worked with incredible women across the world, from interior designers to TV stars and seven-figure coaches. I’ve bought a beautiful apartment with my boyfriend and started earning more in a month than I did in my first year of business. I’ve discovered what being happy is from the inside out (and learned the hard way that it doesn’t begin at the bank, FYI.)
This isn’t a brag moment, but rather a self-celebration (because that’s not only OK, but required.) And also a nod to the fact that yes, you gotta do the WORK, but your desires are completely possible.
I’ve trained as a neuro-linguistic programming practitioner, which not only transformed my own life but helped me do the same with my clients. I’ve become a fully-qualified personal performance coach and motivational speaker and provide motivation, momentum and confidence pep talks to both small businesses and large corporates across the country. I’ve immersed myself in every single personal development book in the history of the Earth and I’ve been a student of every single money transformation lesson I could get my hands on.
That is to say, I’m fully equipped with the tools, the guidance and the essentials to help you master your own version of a successful life and business. And I’ve got the fierce passion in abundance to help you make it happen, too.
I mastered the boundaries, balance and beliefs it takes to breakthrough to the bliss. And I want to help you do the same.
I’ll help you uncover and rewrite those made up stories you’ve been telling yourself about why you can’t make this work. (Because HELLO, have you met you?!)
I’ll be a sounding board for your awesome ideas and plans that have so far simply whirred in your head.
I’ll help you figure out what you want from your business and your life so you can run towards it with everything you’ve got (minus the tight chest and sweaty face.)
I’ll call you out on the mean stuff you tell yourself and won’t hang up until you shower yourself with kindness.
I’ll hold the space for you to realise your dreams, and then hold you to them (but less gun to the head, more accountability and bottle-popping celebrations.)
So, what are you waiting for?
