I began my working life as an Occupational Therapist, with a particular interest in working with psychological concerns. These interests lead to work in Health Service Child and Family settings which included ongoing training and qualifying as a Play Therapist.

I implemented this experience and continuing study in other areas, including care of and shared living with vulnerable adults and Early Childhood education where I offered therapeutic and practical support for families of very young children and professional childcare.

I am currently engaged in the exploration of the effects of early life experience across the lifecourse and have become absorbed with the potential impact these experiences may have on the lives of women reaching midlife and beyond.

Throughout my career, I have had an interest in leadership, and I have often played a leadership role in the professional work that I have been doing. In recent years, I have combined my interest in human development across the lifecourse and my interest in leadership by working with an attachment-informed leadership coach.

My own coaching practice combines my past experience in health and wellbeing with my long-standing interest in leadership, and applies this to helping late career women to develop their role within their close and extended communities, by accompanying them in the discovery, understanding and application of what helps a maturing woman to live her life with health and authenticity.
