As a management consultant, I had all the outward trappings of success: prestigious job, good income, marriage. But there was something wrong with this perfect picture – my self-esteem was low, and getting worse. I realised that the only way I could come to peace with myself was to figure out what my values were, and to live my life accordingly.
So I made the bold and frightening choice to leave it all behind to try and find out what really mattered. I rowed solo across the Atlantic Ocean – to push my limits and to raise awareness about the ecological plight of the oceans. I followed up by rowing across the Pacific and Indian Oceans, becoming the first woman to complete the “Big Three”. I published two books about my experiences, and learned a whole lot about myself and about life.
I chose to add coaching to my writing and speaking careers because I wanted to work with people on an individual basis, to help them find happiness and fulfilment as I have done.
By the way, just because of the rowing, please don’t mistake me for some kind of superhuman über-athlete. I’m not big and I’m not scary. I’m not “one of those people” who never show a glimmer of fear. I don’t have big biceps and I don’t eat nails for breakfast. I’m just a person who had a dream of doing something significant for the world I live in, and found the motivation and tenacity to do it.
If I can change the course of my life and truly start fulfilling my potential, you can do it too, and I’d love to serve you in making your dreams come true.
I live in Windsor, Berkshire, with my partner, Howard, who is also an executive coach.
