…to bounce from one relationship to another, always hopeful for the happily ever after — but getting nowhere but drained and disappointed.

... to have a negative story playing out despite all efforts to be as positive and spiritual as possible.

… to move through your day with a focus on other people’s happiness rather than your own + and loneliness that just won’t go away. 

… to watch your dreams drift farther + farther away from the smokin’ hot, successful, UNSHAKEABLE happy goddess you want to see in the mirror.


Throughout my life, I had been fighting a negative story that I had no clue how to defeat.  Nobody was there to guide me — or give me the loving knowledge I desperately needed.

I had to become my own emotional advocate, seek out my own archetype remedies, test my own theories, and bring myself back to emotional wellbeing and UNSHAKEABLE happiness.

I was trained in Jungian Psychology, but I became a seasoned expert — the hard way, in the trenches in my relationships.

And today?

I’m standing before you with over two decades of personal wisdom — combined with top-notch psychological training from some of the leading voices in personal development.

I’m healthy, confident and happy.  Finally, my relationships in life and business are loving, committed and supportive!

I’m here to remind you that your emotions can work for you rather than against you - even if they feel more like a runaway train, at the moment!

AND I AM LIVING PROOF THAT TRANSFORMATION IS POSSIBLE — when you discover Emotional Intelligence.


As a survivor of toxic relationships by escaping a Cult, narcissistic relationships, and surviving cancer, I found the self-compassion that drives my passion for helping others create a life they enjoy with emotions that work for them rather than against them.

 For twenty years, I coach men and women how to change their negative story, become UNSHAKEABLY happy, love without dependency and enjoy healthy relationships in life and business. 


I have featured as a guest expert on BBC, Radio, Sunday Times, The Independent, News of the World, EVE magazine, Take a Break, Spirit Radio, Break the Silence Summit and Freedom Hour.

I was raised in a Cult and grew up in a toxic soup of abuse.

At two years old, my Dad refused a blood transfusion and died a martyr for the religion. At 16 years old, I escaped the Cult and remain shunned by my family to this day. 

A few years later, I married another controller. We had two beautiful daughters, and I stayed for 14 years at the cost of my confidence, self-esteem and happiness. 

Leap forward a few years, while our youngest was a baby, I became very ill.  

I contracted cancer.  Terrified, I battled 2 years of gruelling chemotherapy ending with a full stem cell transplant, when it happened....the wake-up call.

As I gripped onto the bathroom sink in UCH Hospital, London, in my hospital gown, weak and swollen with steroids, I had no hair and a body that could barely stand.  I caught myself in the mirror.  

Physically I was at my lowest. And yet, as I looked into my eyes in the mirror, I saw an incredible strength.  I had to get through this illness. I had to learn to love myself.  

Two years later,  I clawed myself back to physical health and ended my marriage. 

And then I found myself in love with another narcissist.  After five years,  I no longer recognised myself. I was at rock bottom, and suicide seemed the only option to end the pain.  I was a wreck. I was shocked by how depressed I felt and that to survive, I needed to go in a different direction. 

I realised that I was my biggest problem.  I was in my own way.

I had everything a modern woman was supposed to dream of having - a husband, a house, a family, a successful career - yet like so many others, I found myself lost, confused, and searching for what made me really happy.  I was doing something that was not working in my favour, but I had no clue what I was doing that meant I'm successful in every area of my life but relationships.

No-one was there with the magic wand. I had to find the secrets to happiness and emotional health myself.  I decided to change my life and deep dive into a personal quest to become UNSHAKEABLE. 

It was in this journey that I discovered the true liberation of Emotional Independence, and unexpectedly, true love.

I had discovered the keys to Emotional Intelligence.


And that's why I do what I do

For nearly 20 years, I have the best job in the world, sharing the message that emotional mastery is the key to being UNSHAKEABLE. 

I am here to help you master Emotional Intelligence to fuel your happiness and improve your relationship with yourself and all your interactions with others in life and businesses so your dreams can become a reality too!
