I work with organisations in growing strong women leaders. I focus on building confidence and skills that create integrated teams with diverse leadership capabilities so that women move into more senior leadership positions. 

I take them from feeling like imposters to feeling incredible.  I do that through a variety of methods including conventional and intuitive methods.

During this decade of disruption where time is travelling faster than ever before. Now is the time for women to "Show Up" and Lead Through Times of Change.

Did you know?

1 in 5 people will suffer from a stress related health challenge in their lifetime.

Workers in the resources industry are at a higher risk, with common challenges including spending long periods of time away from home, working long hours, financial stress, shift rosters and social isolation having an impact on performance and wellbeing.

A recent ‘Wellbeing and Lifestyle Survey’ found of 1100 workers across 10 remote construction, open cut and underground mining sites in Western Australia and South Australia, found about 30 per cent reported high distress levels. This is three times the national average.
