For Insightful Minds to be recognised as the driving force of change between holistic therapies, medicine and business working together to change the current perception of mental health.

My personal leadership vision
I’m an inspirational spiritual leader in the field of health and wellbeing. My coaching, training and therapy allow me to empower individuals to become happier, healthier and wealthier. In doing so, I am challenging the current perception of mental health to assist individuals fulfil their purpose in life without judgement about the state of their mental health and labels others have given them. I am transforming the world of business to be holistic in their approach about all aspects of health – spiritual, mental, emotional and physical.
I started working in the Hospitality Industry in 1998 after achieving a BSc Honours degree in Hospitality Management. I absolutely loved working in customer service roles within Hotels and Restaurants as I am a real people person. My final role was as a Catering Manager at Heathrow Airport in 1996 and this is where my life took a spectacular twist….. One Christmas Eve, I had an accident at work. What seemingly on the surface appeared to be a minor accident, actually lead me to developing Chronic Pain Syndrome and having two years off work. During this time, I had a range of tests to find out what was wrong and I was given all sorts of different treatments to ease my pain, and nothing seemed to work. I was sent to the Chronic Pain Clinic where I was given both conventional and complementary therapy to try to get me better. Nothing really worked….
Having been told that I would only have 70% of my function for life, I was distraught by the news. Now at this point, I could have gone two way
a) Sink into a depression of ‘Why me..’
b) Do something about to change the situation
I chose the second route and decided to do something to help myself. Now, I am not saying that I haven’t had some depressive episodes along the way, but I am proud to say that I now have at least 95% of my function. Insightful Minds is all about inspiring others to change how they feel about their health and to think differently to get themselves better again. I teach my clients how to become more self aware of how they are feeling and behaving. Sometimes what we are doing is unconscious and it can be more difficult to change this behaviour without some assistance, which is where I help clients with the skills that I have learnt as a coach.
In 1999, I managed to get off benefit and start my teaching career. So why the Healer’s Healer…. having recovered my health, I became a very successful teacher trainer, but when I stepped full time into business full time, a combination of devastating personal issues and poor management of my money within my business, lead me into significant debt and depression. I’ve now recovered my health once more, by applying spiritual practices and self development around my health and my wealth! No anti depressants in sight and I am happier than ever!! I now inspire other business owners to manage their money mindset in a different way so that they don’t suffer the stress and anxiety that I did.

I have been a professional coach since 2002 having trained with the Coaching Academy and I am an LSIS Subject Learning Coach and Advanced Learning Coach. I am a Master Practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming, Hypnosis and Time Line Therapy™, Reiki Master/Teacher and Practitioner of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy techniques, Emotional Freedom Technique and Indian Head Massage. These are all tools which I have learnt on my own journey of self development and change. I attend regular update sessions to ensure that I stay current and focusses on best practice. As expected, I have an enhanced Criminal Record Bureau check in place.
I am totally passionate about helping individuals to transform their health and happiness. It really is possible to feel so much happier than you are now. I love using my experience and skills as a teacher to help my clients learn so much about themselves – how they are chosing to react to situations, how they are unwittingly holding on to negativity, clinging on to the past and teaching them to act a different way. I empower them to let go of what is holding them back.
As your coach, I will challenge your beliefs about what is possible to achieve and make you realise that there is so much more that you can achieve.
