​Dream 2 Reality Coaching

​Dream it, Believe it, Achieve it 


​​​My lightbulb moment came during coaching - my dream was to have a portfolio approach to my working life so that I could achieve a better work/life balance. Understanding my life purpose is to unlock the potential of others to make a difference in the world, since 2000 I've been a soulopreneur, coaching, training and mentoring visionary people from all walks of life to turn their dreams  into reality

​​I am an expert Dream-worker and Catalyst for Change.  I work with visionary people to support them in creating solutions to challenges, enhancing performance and making the changes they want to see in their personal and working lives. Working with both waking and dreamtime, I use tools and techniques which relieve time pressures and drive projects through to success faster and more easily

For more than 30 years, I have used my coaching, training and mentoring skills with private individuals, small groups and organisations to deliver training and workshops to people of varied abilities and capabilities to bring about change in a wide variety of situations. 

In 1999, whilst recovering from a serious illness lasting several months, I had time out to review my own life's purpose, dreams and wishes.

"Every revolutionary idea, be it in science, politics,

art or any other field, evokes three stages of reaction:
“It’s impossible. Don’t waste my time”
“It’s possible, but it’s not worth doing”
“I said it was a good idea all along”"          
Arthur C Clarke






  • For 17 years, using a holistic approach, I've coached and trained able-bodied people and those with hearing, visual and mobility impairments and wheelchair users to make a difference in many areas, including accessibility to transport, hotels, shops and restaurants and other venues in the UK and overseas.​
  • I was a School Governor with responsibility for the Performance Management programme working with the Head and staff to set and work towards achieving their goals in line with the whole school ethos.  I was Vice Chair when Oakdale School was awarded beacon status for its work on "Learning to Learn" in the early 2000s.​
  • I formally qualified as a Personal Performance Coach and NLP Practitioner with The Coaching Academy in 2014 and as a DISC Personality Profiler  in January 2015.

​​Since 2000, I’ve set and achieved goals to live the life I love by:

  • Making a difference in my own and others’ lives through coaching, training and mentoring, 1-to-1 and in groups.
  • Becoming a working actress
  • ​Being paid to write fiction and non-fiction 
  • Being paid to travel for work and with family and friends for leisure​

I’ve turned the above dreams to reality by having a vision, a realistic plan, identifying where my strengths lie and obtaining the skills and resources to plug any gaps in my knowledge and abilities. 


Sometimes I’ve been stretched well past my comfort zone and struggled to motivate myself to take action.  I find being coached empowers you to check your vision and actions support your values; motivates you to meet challenges head-on, change setbacks to comebacks and learn from them; and most importantly inspires you to take action and celebrate success!

  • ​Studies at Redbridge Drama Centre led me to acting in Film and TV as well as training videos relating to care of the sick and elderly and corporate role-play.  
  • ​I took a writing course which led to publishing articles in areas of expertise, humorous greetings cards, lyrics and most recently a stage play.
