The first thing to know about me is, I love my job!  To work with children and parents is a great privilege and I love to see the impact NLP tools and techniques can make in such a short space of time.

During my career as an NLP4Kids therapist I have helped:

  • Children who are being bullied
  • Children struggling to cope with their parent’s divorce
  • Children with severe social anxiety
  • Children with school and exam stress
  • Children struggling to cope with bereavement
  • Parents with childhood trauma’s
  • Parents dealing with the impact of their divorce on their children
  • Schools dealing with bullying issues
  • Schools dealing with anxiety & confidence issues

Following many successful years providing communications coaching to the corporate world, I decided to build on my Psychology degree to become an NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) practitioner and NLP Child Therapist.  This, fortunately, coincided with a particularly difficult time in my life where I was forced, for the first time in years to face, acknowledge and deal with my emotions and my own lack of self-confidence.

When I was first introduced to NLP –  its power was quite a shock to my system.  I couldn’t believe how quickly it enabled me to develop and become the person I had always wanted to be.  I gained a sense of freedom and motivation which has helped me (and continues to help me) pursue my goals.  I consider myself extremely lucky, not only do I get to practice NLP in my own life; I work with others to help them unlock limiting beliefs and change their future.

I love that I now pass the skills and tools I learned on to others. Every child deserves access to strong empowering resources enabling them to live happy, successful lives.

My Qualifications include:

  • Degree in Psychology
  • Empowered Learning Practitioner
  • NLP Master Practitioner
  • NLP Practitioner
  • NLP4Kids Licensed Practitioner
  • NLP4Parents Practitioner
  • NLP4Teachers Practitioner


My aim is simple: To empower all children and young adults to reach their full potential.
