Why we do what we do:

My professional path has varied, from camera sales and accounts to youth work and working with vulnerable adults. For the last twenty years I have run my own successful photography business. Then I came to a point in my life when I knew I was ready for a career change, but what?

About 8 years ago, after a difficult relationship breakup, I embarked on my own personal development journey. In 2011 I discovered and studied N.L.P. (Neuro Linguistic Programming). I became a practitioner and from this time I continued my own personal development with a constant desire for more understanding. I met Maria Paviour through a networking group we both belonged to and became friends. Over time she shared her plans for creating NeuChem coaching.

This really sparked my interest. Something that allowed me to advance my coaching experience with the latest neuroscience-based research. It really hit the mark and so when the school became a reality I was one of the first to get involved.

I am passionate about working with people who are stuck at a crossroads lacking vision, direction and confidence, and relish the chance to enable and empower others and to create opportunity. My journey in life has been less than smooth but my learning and Neuroscience understanding has enabled me to flourish and gainclarity and I can’t help but share it with others.
