I’m a contemporary dancer based in Leeds. I work freelance as a professional dancer; performing, improvising, and teaching yoga. In 2011 I trained as a Relational Dynamics 1st coach.

I love being freelance and making my own decisions but have at times felt that is was a  lonely, overwhelming and daunting experience. Being coached helped me to become more focused, self-assured and determined. In the process I realised that it was the fear of success rather than fear of failure that kept me from moving in the direction I wanted.

We all need someone who will just listen without judgement and help us unleash our potential. Often solutions appear unexpectedly as we verbalise our thoughts and feelings and these become more tangible. The beauty of coaching is discovering how we ourselves hold the answers to many of the difficult questions in our lives and that we don’t always need to be handed a solution. Acknowledging your own resources is immensely empowering.
