Twice Certified Alcohol Freedom Coach, looking to transform the lives of women suffering the consequences of problematic drinking the world over.


Reads like a bad dating profile right?


The truth is, for the longest time I was a problematic drinker. No one knew, not really. I was heralded as a 'The Party Girl' always the first one to suggest a party and the last one to leave it.


I had an incredibly stressful job at the forefront of the British Criminal Justice for almost 20 years, lived in a beautiful home with my wonderful husband and amazing children. On the surface, everything looked good.


On the inside, I was crumbling.


For approximately 25 years, I'd drunk problematically. Not out of brown paper bags on the street, but in pretty bottles at home on my sofa.


I knew I was damaging my health when lockdown accelerated an already problematic relationship with alcohol. I knew if I carried on, my children would be impacted simply just by bearing witness to it.


I knew I had to change, but I didn't know how.


I worked closely with drug and alcohol services in my professional life, I knew their frameworks weren't for me - even if I could've summoned the courage to access them.


So I started learning everything I could about alcohol and recovery and I made it gender specific. I trained in coaching, Neuro Linguistic Programming and EFT. I learnt that just not drinking wasn't enough. I had to incorporate a holistic approach to recovery that enabled women like me to create a life they didn't want to escape from as that is the commonality among us. We want to escape.


I worked through the steps I'd created and then I founded a tribe. I started to share my program with women on a 121 basis and the transformations were incredible. Not everyone in the tribe could access 121 support so I rolled it out to this membership. I now get to witness women all over the world making this brave and bold transformation alongside one another.


At the time of writing, I am three years sober and thriving in every aspect of my life.


Are you ready to 'date' me? :)
