Connect In exists to support parents to be well & grow


I started Connect In to shine a light on the importance of parental wellbeing & to support parents with their own wellbeing and growth.


I love the uniqueness of family and that there are so many beautiful forms of it. I don’t believe there is one right way to live, love and parent.

I believe the capacity for what’s best for your family sits within you.

I whole heartedly believe that when we are well & growing as human beings we can live life with more integration & flow and be fully present & enjoy the lives we are creating in work & family life.

After all we only get one go at it!

Personally I know first hand the impact on life & family when you are not well. My own wellbeing was greatly affected when I had a burnout in my mid-twenties. It took me a number of years to find wellness again.

Then after my second child I started to relive this again... in part because I had no fuel in my tank – I was exhausted, sleep deprived, and life was full. I had always lived & worked with a clear sense of purpose & meaning and yet I lost my sense of that and I began to find life a struggle, frustrating, tiring and deeply at odds with what I knew was most important to me & my family.

I connected in, found my footing again & rediscovered my creator within. Now with a strong passion to support other parents who are feeling stuck and know their wellbeing & capacity to grow in work & life has taken a knock.

freedom, space, connection

The common thread through my whole career has been supporting people with their own journey of growth & development. And this each and every time is an
utter privilege.

I believe that having a solid companion for a journey of growth is a necessity and as human beings we are not meant to do our growth alone!

I believe each journey is unique, sacred, special and requires both compassion & challenge. I limit the number of clients I take on so as I can always provide the support, care and holding that’s so very important.

For over 20 years, I’ve been working in the world of training, development and coaching. I started in the field of education and habilitation, working with children with motor disorders to develop their independence and achieve their potential.


This led me to work in adult learning and development, where I trained and supported people in leadership and management, interpersonal communication, team dynamics, self-development & more.

I trained as an Integral & Generative coach and entered the area of learning and development in a deeper way.

I’m a qualified Integral and Generative coach and hold a Professional Coaching Credential (PCC) with the International coaching federation (ICF). I am also a qualified NLP practitioner and hold a qualification for coaching with
the Enneagram.


I live in North London with my husband, Chris and our two lively girls, Lily and Grace & now our puppy ‘Roary’.
