Today I'm a health coach for those who are ready and willing to break free of the struggle (and enjoy life!). I have been where you are, I can assure you.
I remember the days when I was stuck in the frustration of just getting through each day. I wanted to feel connected to my beautiful family and my life. I wanted to feel like I was doing a good job and that I was being seen and heard too. But as time went on, the harder it was to do life AND feel great.
I realise now I was living my life through a lens that needing updating. It’s tough to see things differently when you are wearing the same glasses all the time!
I realised if things were going to change, and I was going to age feeling energised, vibrant, healthy and happy, I needed to change.
Through much researching, I came across a ground-breaking approach to health with over 20 years of research behind it. It went beyond all the books I’d read and even what I had learned in my nursing training. When I discovered they also had a body of research around epigenetics and personalising health I immediately knew I had to study it.
Personalised health draws on 15 different sciences including:
It sees each person as having their own unique needs and preferences based on their biology. Instead of drawing on the same strategies with each individual, this approach starts with a thorough non-invasive assessment of your genetics, hormones and neurochemistry to provide you with your phenotype (or healthtype).
With this as a guide I was able to park all the standard cookie-cutter ‘one-size-fits-all’ methods and follow what was essentially a manual for each of my clients. I began to see everyone through the lens of personalisation.
My son’s arthritis has markedly improved and so has my energy and my relationship with my kids.
All together we have became a happier, healthier and more cohesive unit. There are still days when things can go pear shaped but we can get back on track so much quicker knowing what needs and preferences we each have.
Just the other day my 19 year old son (who happens to be studied psychology) said to me that he feels I really understand him and then gave me a high 5. It was a great moment!
This personanlised approach has made such an impact on my life, it's now my vocation. It has helped me understand others on a completely different and deeper level.Find out more about the FeelGood Programs

I absolutely love what I do. To me this work is personal, it’s my purpose, it’s real and it’s life changing. I really care about the families I work with.
I love seeing the transformation that this work has on the previous misunderstandings and fights over the years as they melt away. I’m blown away when a family plans a holiday taking into account each person’s preferences. And I’m most excited when I see family members start to listen to each other instead of talking (or yelling!) over each other all the time.
I do this work because I’ve seen a huge shift in my relationship with my kids (and even with my parents) and I can’t wait to show more families what’s possible.
I could bet that life is very busy for you so all my programs and classes are direct and to the point to deliver what you need.
Yes, I have a wealth of knowledge I will share with you, but I also know that you as parents and care-givers are the experts of your own children. My role is to ask the right questions, direct you when needed and support you in using your knowledge to create the home life you want.
Something I also often hear from parents and caregivers is that they start a program with the best intentions and then life gets in the way. That’s why I work closely with you one-to-one. That way momentum stays high and you won’t sit there stuck or get distracted. I want you to get your money’s worth and actually see the change you wanted when you signed up!! For me that’s the biggest thrill of all.
I’ve worked with many different individuals over my extensive career in health and wellbeing. Those who are ready and willing to invest time and effort into themselves and their families find the accountability that comes with a coach, helps them create change more successfully.
I know that many coaches will say they're the one for you, but it is important that you find the coach that understands who you are and your situation - from your perspective.
Every one is different and can desire different outcomes, so it is important that the strategies are personalised to you.
I work best with individuals, and families, who recognise they need a tailored approach and who want a culture of connection and understanding in their home.
