  • Coaching / Wellbeing Walks and Retreats


I have a number of skills developed through years of working in community, voluntary and outdoor education sectors. This has given me the privilege of working in varied roles that I have thoroughly enjoyed. I have been interested in personal development and training for many years and decided to train as a Life Coach so that I could help other people to grow and get more out of life.

I set up my business ‘Sense of Direction’ in Spring 2016, which enables me to combine walking and the outdoors to enhance the coaching experience. For me, not only is walking great for physical and mental health but it is a stimulus for creative thinking and problem solving and I wanted to share this with other people.

I offer coaching on an individual basis via the standard methods of phone and Skype as well as coaching walks. I also lead monthly well-being walks and day retreats.
