"Increasing social and emotional literacy will be a game changer to building up balanced and empowered future leaders"


Mummy to Eve, Writer & Illustrator, Free Thinker, Inner Child Healing & Mindfulness Activist, my work is influenced by Mindfulness, Social and Emotional Learning, Positive Psychology and Neuroscience. Through coaching, writing, illustration, teaching meditation & mindfulness, blogging, workshops, online courses, art and speaking, I help people who are done with playing small to stop the doubt, the guilt and second-guessing and start creating a passionate and fulfilling life. I create tools for people to have the emotional, social and behavioral foundation they need to show up, be seen, and live braver lives. I do this for individuals and companies. My reconversion followed a prolific career in leading FMCG companies in sales and marketing. I have worked both client and agency side.  

To me, Planet Earth is only filled with little humans, the actual children and the little children hiding inside all the adults on the planet. I believe in a world where we can all live from LOVE and not from FEAR. I fiercely advocate children’s empowerment because of my many years of coaching and healing practice have taught me that “empowering children is always easier than trying to fix or “repair a broken adult”. I believe as coined by John Bradshaw that “this neglected, wounded inner child of the past is the major source of human misery.” Our world needs a new generation of grounded and balanced leaders. I am a mum to Eve and she is my bundle of Joy and my inspiration and I am currently undergoing the Positive Discipline certification. I am a member of the SCBWI (Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators)
