I decided to train as a coach after having coaching myself. In 2012, after months of unexplained and debilitating fatigue, I was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Hypermobility Syndrome, a hereditary connective-tissue disorder. I was referred to the Changing Outlook on Pain Experiences (COPE) programme at University College Hospital in London, as pain, fatigue and anxiety had significantly restricted my activity, impacting on my life experience and mood. The course was run by psychologists, specialist pain nurses and physiotherapists, and coaching was a core component.
During the course, the specialist support helped me to achieve things that I'd considered downright impossible, with the most amazing feeling. I felt free, with a sense that I'd come back to myself. I knew that I wanted to put my psychology background to use helping others to achieve the same feeling, and so trained as a coach.
I use a Transformational Coaching approach, which uses a combination of evidence-based psychological approaches, including Cognitive Behavioural, Narrative, Person-Centred, and Transactional Analysis.
I have a Master's in Psychology and a career history spanning different industries, including health, education, and IT. I have lived experience as a woman with a chronic health condition and a neurodivergent brain (ADHD), both of which give their own unique spin on life.
I am a Graduate Member of the British Psychological Society and an Associate Member of the International Society for Coaching Psychology.
