I fell in love with coaching people over 30 years ago and have followed that passion since then, helping people achieve happiness in their lives.
I trained as an Optician, following this career while my children were small. After our family moved to Devon, I continued working in the Optics industry but started to focus on Learning and Development. This fulfilled my desire to teach and help people to grow their careers. This change in direction enabled me to succeed in a new role involving managing a team, management training and working as a lead tutor for an extensive leadership and management programme for many years. All of this revolved around coaching.
I am a Master NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) Practitioner and transformational life coach, covering a wide range of skills from emotional freedom technique (EFT), work-life balance, phobia solutions, hypnotherapy, mindfulness, health and wellbeing. I also offer resilience training using AQR Mental Toughness Questionnaire as a measure of that development. I am a qualified mental health first aider trained in suicide prevention.
I have suffered chronic pain for many years and have put together a programme designed to help clients who want to help themselves manage their pain, whether physical or mental. Check out my free Transforming Chronic Pain courses and the subsequent six-week programmes.

"Why Bees?" is a question I am often asked. My simple answer is that I love bees. They are incredible creatures that are crucial to our survival as humans. Without bees, our lives and the planet as a whole would be vastly different. Bees are some of the hardest working creatures on Earth, and we owe them immense gratitude for their laborious work ethic.
Did you know that one out of every three things we eat needs a bee to pollinate a plant? Without pollination, plants wouldn't produce seeds, and without seeds, we wouldn't have future plants. While other insects and animals can pollinate, none are as efficient as bees. Bees are the superstars of pollination!
At Bee@one, we take pride in our work and the way we look after our clients. We are inspired by bees and believe that the world is a little better because of the work we do.
