Why choose coaching?


People choose coaching when they desire some form of change and feel stuck in one or more areas of their lives.
I provide a safe space for self-reflection, helping clients gain clarity on how to bring about positive and lasting change. 
I work with adults from all age groups, in person and online.
  • Career and life transitions
  • Stress management
  • Self-confidence
  • Self-identity
  • Emotional resilience
Integrative approach
Existential, positive psychology and somatic mindfulness coaching.
Existential coaching is based on the belief that we all experience some anxiety due to the uncertainties of life and it can help in the quest for meaning and purpose.
Positive psychology coaching aims to improve emotional wellbeing by identifying your strengths and helping you utilise them in better ways.
The mind-body connection tends to be neglected in talking therapies, the work being done at a "head" level only. I aim to help clients increase somatic awareness.
Coaching vs therapy
A frequently asked question is: What is the difference between coaching and psychotherapy? The quick and common answer to this question is that therapy focuses on the past, whereas coaching is about the present and future. While this might be generally true, my person-centred approach allows for deeper self-exploration, if and when needed.

About me

I've had a keen interest in humanistic psychology since my teenage years and in my early 40s, after running a wellbeing practice for several years, I decided to train as a coach. I trained in London in 2016-17 and previously as a yoga and holistic therapist in the UK and in Asia.
Before training as a coach and therapist, I did translation and teaching work. My background in music performance, and my struggle with stage fright, made me aware of the mind-body connection and the importance of stress management.
