Nowadays I’m writing more. My debut memoir No Place to Lie has had a terrific early reception with all five star reviews on Amazon (very grateful).

The book is available as a paper-back or as an audio book. You can even watch me discuss the book at length on my YouTube channel – ‘Hello, it’s better to talk’.

Author, Trainer & Speaker, Ambassador

We grow through our connections with our self, with others, and with our beautiful planet. There is alchemy, pure gold, in healing through communication and connection.

For over thirty five years I worked as a family lawyer and mediator, also training other lawyers in talking solutions, aiming to help practitioners and clients improve outcomes with the best interests of the family in mind. Nowadays I am writing more and following the successful publication of my debut memoir, No Place to Lie, am excited to pass on the secrets of making stories compelling in my writing retreat, The Power of Owning Your Story.

out and about

I also run training courses and speak and present in a variety of settings. I specialise in communication and heartfelt connection and healing. At the heart of my work and life is being a courage builder.

We live in a divided world, disconnected from the planet on which we live and breathe and from each other. To find our way back to each other, to connect, we need to have the bravery and courage to be vulnerable, in a safe setting, and tell our stories. It’s better to talk, from our hearts and souls, to discover our true joy in life.

You’re welcome to contact me to discuss your training needs.
