Welcome to my website .

Thanks for dropping by. Here’s a bit about me…

First and foremost, I’m a chartered psychologist. I take hugely important, but often complex psychological research and translate that into tools, strategies and formulas that people can implement to make positive changes in their lives. I describe myself as being a translator between the world of academia and normal life.

I spend my days researching, writing, teaching and coaching. I live and breathe my work, and I love helping people to build their resilience, overcome challenges, learn what it takes to perform at their peak and ultimately thrive in life.

I run the Resilience Edge research centre and I have two gorgeous small children who are showing early signs of being strong-willed, feisty, independent young ladies. I talk a lot about juggling work and home life and finding the right formula for each individual. I also spend a lot of time focusing on getting the work-home balance right for me and my family, because as all working parents know, the juggle is real.
