I want to help you connect with the wisest part of yourself, embrace your own enoughness and live a bold and deeply fulfilling life – without apology.
It is my deep belief that all women, regardless of race, religion, size, social standing or anything else, have within them something valuable to share with the world.
The problem is that most of us have been told – by the media, well-meaning teachers, parents, partners or friends – that we aren’t enough. We learn to play small and protect ourselves from the criticisms of others by denying who we really are and what we really want.
So many of us need to be reminded that we are enough, that who we are, as we are right now, is enough. That we have gifts to share and offer the world, that the world needs each and every one of us to share our voices, our experiences, our truths – no matter how insignificant they may seem to us.
I use the tools of creative life coaching and creative practice to help women reconnect with their own inner wisdom, overcome fear and doubt, get clear on what really matters to them, and step into their power to create a life that honours their needs.
Without wanting to sound dramatic, creative journaling is the number one tool I’ve used to literally transform my life: I’ve overcome depression, gained clarity, learned to cherish who I really am, found courage to make major life changes, and learned how to let my own inner wisdom and truth guide me.
It is my hope that I can help other women to do the same, through openly sharing my own story, through my creative life coaching and by teaching everything I know about creative journaling.

Starting your own regular journaling practice
Below you can find my guide to starting your own journaling practice. Getting started with a daily journaling practice can be life-changing, but if you’ve never done it before it can be a bit daunting.
The best advice is to start where you are. You don’t need to recount everything in your life that has happened up to this point! Make the process as simple and easy as possible. Explore the links below to help you get started.
