Smashing Glass Ceilings on a daily basis

I am an accredited Coach with the IAPC&M and their Head of Professional Standards. I am also a qualified Social Worker and trained laughter workshop facilitator (yes there is such a thing) and have spent many years working in mental health and substance misuse services. I began my coaching journey after a significant turning point in my life. With an unhealthy lifestyle, unhappy at work and home, things looked bleak. A change in circumstance gave me the opportunity to train as a coach and my life has literally transformed. Since then I have ran 2 marathons, 3 half marathons, had two children, flown a plane, got a job promotion and is a ‘leading expert’ in bouncing around the room like an idiot most days. I love helping people to smash glass ceilings and believe #anythingispossible. People are doing extraordinary things daily and there is no reason why that cannot be YOU. If you are in need of a smashing good time and have stratospheric ambitions, then please get in touch

On the contrary it can be a very cathartic experience (not necessarily pain free), if you are willing to engage in the process.

When you married your spouse, the idea was for better for worse, in sickness and in health, til death us do part and yet here you are, not dead and facing the prospect of divorce.
