I worked as a university teacher for over a decade after finishing my PhD in Cultural Tradition. But as my young family grew I needed a change. Life after academia blossomed into a multi-faceted adventure and I now run Little Bird Coaching - which has grown out of several years exploring Clean Language, craft/handwork teaching and peer supporting. 


I am passionate about creating sustainable, positive outcomes for everyday life. I believe that Clean Language offers a strong, safe and adaptable tool for doing this.

My clients describe me as intuitive, insightful and nurturing - helping to create a safe, creative space for them to explore and grow.
