What is a Mental Health and Wellbeing Coach?

In short, a trained professional who helps you to promote your mental health and wellbeing so that you can be a fully thriving individual. Coaching isn’t an event, its a conversation with a purpose that helps you to create the tools to keep it that way.

Coaching attends to the here and now and where you want to go. It is not about me giving you the answers, but together capitalising on your resources and looking within to find solutions. 

The coaching process can be a powerful way to recognise and tap into your potential.

My Experience of Coaching


Coaching took me to an exciting new chapter of my life and helped me leap into a world of possibility. I’ve learned how to attend to my own wellbeing, be bold with my decisions and lead a more adventurous life. Through coaching, I have ‘stepped out of the box’ with career and lifestyle choices in the realisation that happiness and wellbeing come from being courageous, developing mental toughness strategies, then going forth boldly and creating your wellbeing adventure!

My Coaching Philosophy

I am a mental health and wellbeing coach, (PCC accredited/ BSC hons) with 23 years of experience working as an Occupational Therapist in mental health services. I have a passion for promoting personal growth, resilience and wellbeing. I love working with organisations and with people from all walks of life.

I believe that life is just too short to put off experiencing health, happiness and fulfilment. My expertise enables me to help people to fully thrive in their lives. With Adventurous Coaching interventions are brief and yet powerful; we can co-create solutions in a short space of time. 

In my experience, even the most creative and successful people can lack resilience, feel stuck, find themselves at a crossroad without a clear direction or feel that they are existing but not thriving in life.

I have learned from experience that adopting an adventurous and solution focused approach can uncover more possibilities and have you feeling inspired.

Together we can explore your potential for an adventurous life and help you to pursue it from a place of awareness, confidence and clarity.

I place strong value on transparency and the use of humour as we work and learn together.

Through coaching, we can tap into your inner resourcefulness and that audacious spark that we all have, and help you to find ways to live a life that you love.

How could Adventurous Coaching benefit you?

I help resourceful people who feel that they are merely existing, who feel stuck or are at a crossroads and without a clear road map. Life coaching allows me to be on a journey with you; helping you gain clarity about what might be at the heart of any issue holding you back, recognising more possibilities than you had considered, and progressing from feeling derailed to being back on track, gaining pace, purpose and direction.

Together we’ll:

  • Develop a mindset to maximise your potential and opens new doors.
  • Co-create your plan: empowering you to go forward with manageable changes, mark the milestones and hold yourself accountable.
  • Capitalise on your competencies, strengths and resources to ensure that you have the tools going forward.

Adventurous coaching helps you to ‘reset your compass’, navigate your way through transitions and have you feeling inspired again.

Adventurous Coaching is about you developing your knowledge and expertise in your health and wellbeing so that you can become your own coach and embark on your big adventure!
