I'm so pleased you've found your way to the Wild Edges - a safe and nurturing space for healing, self-development and transformation.
My mission is to help you create the life you want and deserve through coaching and healing treatments.
I use a holistic approach which means that I view your body, mind and spirit as one, and that everything that happens in your life is inter-connected. Therefore, in order to achieve lasting change, it's important to explore all these aspects of you, as a whole person.
I've been a professional coach with over 20 years in corporate and private practice, and I have helped hundreds of people to achieve their life goals, achieve the career of their dreams and have better relationships with the people they live and work with. Throughout that time, I've developed a coaching approach that draws on principles of integrative coaching, psychology and spiritual practice which helps you to access both conscious cognition and unconscious intuition to support you in visualising and living the life you were destined to live.
I am a Reiki Practitioner and a Shamanic Healer; I work with clients at an energetic level to support healing physically, mentally, emotionally and on a soul level.
I offer my services individually or in combination, depending on your needs and preferences.
Connection with nature plays a large part in my work, whether this is wild coaching in ancient woodland, working with the elements, or using guided meditations with clients as a way of virtually connecting with nature.
Hence, I invite you to discover your wild edges and explore the world from a holistic perspective and dare to dream the life you want.
I love working with people. I've taken a long and winding road to get to where I am, but now that I'm here. I finally feel a sense of being in the right place at the right time, doing the right work.
Ever since I was very young I have been curious about what the world and how we fit into it. I was the child who always had more questions than the grown ups around me had answers to. My favourite word was "why?" and lthough some of my teachers labelled me as disruptive, I was fortunate to be schooled in an environment that valued curiosity and critical thinking, and I thrived on learning as much as I could about the world.
Before I launched The Wild Edges, I spent most of my career in the corporate world, supporting the organisations I worked for with training and development. I trained formally as a business and life coach and have helped hundreds of people to achieve their life goals, achieve the career of their dreams and have better relationships with the people they live and work with.
Whilst I loved seeing people thrive at work, I slowly started to feel there was something missing from my coaching. I had a sense that I was simply helping people to succeed in jobs that they didn't really enjoy, and what I really wanted to ask (and I did!) was "what do you really, truly, want in your life?". During that time, I was also having coaching and was asked the exact same question! It took someone else to hold a mirror up for me to take a good hard look at myself.
I realised that what was missing from my coaching - and from my life - was a spiritual dimension. Most of us are conditioned from an early age to ignore this part of us, to suppress thoughts we have of our inner power and wisdom, and to control our overactive imaginations. I started to strip away the layers and years of conditioning to reveal my true self. It has taken time, and a lot of hard work (and there is still plenty of work to do, believe me) but the journey so far has been worth it. I am starting to accept who I am and I no longer feel the need to look to others for validation. I follow a shamanic path in my life and this brings me a deeper sense of my self and my connection with the world around me.
I have since added spiritual life coaching, reiki and shamanic healing to my holistic toolbox, and these help me to work at conscious, subconscious, energetic and soul levels with my clients, depending on what each person needs, and how deep they are ready to go.
Life is too short to spend wondering what might have been
You already have everything you need within you to live the life you want and deserve
We are conditioned from an early age to put our trust in things outside ourselves and ignore our intuition
We are all more powerful than we realise and remembering who we are is key to healing and growth
Change - however painful - is necessary for our growth
There are more things in heaven and earth that are dreamt of in our philosophy
Everything in the universe - past, present and future - is connected
Nature and the elements help us to heal, reconnect with ourselves and remind us of our place in the world
Working with me
My work is underpinned by many years of training and experience as a professional coach and my understanding of the human psyche, so you can be assured that our work together will be professional and tailored to your specific situation and needs. My approach is holistic and non-judgemental and is guided by deep listening, empathy and acceptance. I will create a safe space in which you can be yourself, embark on a journey of self discovery and heal yourself. I work intuitively so there is no “off the shelf” treatment, and each session will be unique to you.
Our sessions can take place at my home in Cambridgeshire, online or outdoors in nature, perhaps in ancient woodland or a local park, or by the sea.
I work with men and women of all ages and backgrounds, who are starting to question things, and who are ready to discover what is truly important to them, what they believe and what they really want in their lives. Many of the people I work with are spiritually aware or curious about spirituality. They may or may not have particular religious beliefs, but what they all have in common is a desire for greater balance in their lives, a sense of purpose, fulfilment and a belief that the outer world is a reflection of the inner world, and it is only by going within that we can heal what is without.
I believe that the greatest work is done when we are on the same wavelength as the people who are supporting us. Trust is fundamental to any relationship and it is no different in coaching, Reiki or other forms of therapy.
To help you decide if I am the right person to work with, I invite you to have a free, no obligation 30 minute discovery session with me, online or by telephone. I would welcome the opportunity to help you explore what you're looking for, and accompany you on your path to wellbeing and self-discovery.
