If you speak to anyone who knows me, they will say that I’m a lover of Growth & Development.  I always have been.  It’s just part of who I am - I love to help people better.   

Over my 16 years of working in the corporate world, this interest began to take on a life of its own.  And so, 5 years ago  I choose to listen to the rumblings in my stomach and decided it was time to branch out and to see where this would take me.  I  began by studying (again) and and became Qualified as a Trainer & Coach in NLP & Hypnotherapy.  Following this I launched a successful Online Publication for the Growth Development & Wellness Industry, called The Daily Guru.  

That was 5 years ago - and what a ride it’s been!  

Today my time is spent;

- as Founder & Editor of The Daily Guru  
- as a Career & Life Coach with Ama La Vida 
- as a National Committee Member for UN Women -​​​​​​

- & as a Professional Speaker 

I have always seen Growth and Development as vital parts of anyone’s health and happiness and also one of the most rewarding experiences we can all embrace. 
I feel very blessed to be able to share this philosophy through all of the work that  I do & to know Im making a difference in peoples lives.



Whether you’re looking to discover a career you love, build the confidence to make a change in your life, tackle a big goal or overcome a major setback,, coaching is great resource during these important times of change.!

Helping create change &  tangible results in a clients life and career is something I’m hugely passionate about. I believe there is no greater gift than helping someone discover their hidden talents – the ones that make them unique and exceptional.   I love the experience of sharing knowledge and information with clients which allows them to make different decisions for themselves, as well as helping them improve their overall life experience.

I believe there are certain times in everyone’s life, where we all need a helping hand to overcome obstacles and to decide what it is we actually want from life and our careers. Which is why i became a coach.,

Working with the Ama LA Vida team I utilize evidence-based coaching models and methodologies rooted in positive psychology, adult learning techniques, neuroscience and change theories to ensure that my clients achieve the results they are looking for


This is such an important question to ask before you engage with any coach. Working with a coach is like being in an intimate relationship. You have to be yourself and feel comfortable putting it all out there – your fears, your joys, your sadness – without any judgement or hesitancy. Only then will you get the most out of coaching and will your coach be of value to you.

So am I the right coach for you?

- Are you looking to make changes in your life or career but you are missing the clarity and steps to do so?

- Have you been unhappy in your career for a while but are unclear on what to do about it?

- Do you have the desire to make some big changes in your life or career, but do not know where to start?

- Are you wanting to make a big change in your career, but feel very restricted by your other life commitments (Finance, Family, External Expectations)?

- Do you feel you need help discovering your true purpose and aligning this with your career goals?

​​​​​​​- Have you experienced great success in your career, but no longer feel passionate about your career and you are unsure what to do about it?

If you’ve answered yes to any of the questions above, then I would love to work with you.  These are specific career and life milestones which I specialise in within my coaching.  Therefore, I would love to help you overcome these challenges and proactively help empower you as you move through these milestone stones with ease, clarity and positive intention.​​​​​​​ 


 The are a few options to choose from which you can explore further below 

If you are unsure which option is best for you, you can book in for a Complimentary Consultation below, where I can get to know you and your coaching needs a little better.
