“Far too many people live a half-life, a life often dictated by others, a life controlled by the actions of others in the present or the past. As a qualified Coach Therapist, by helping people think differently using some relatively simple techniques I put people back in control of their lives both at home and at work.”

Paula's Story

I’m a qualified coach therapist, and author, and I’m the happiest I have ever been.

Every day I support people across the world in making decisions and choices which lead to a more joyful, healthier, and straightforward way of living. But it hasn’t always been that way…

I spent most of my life living in the shadow of a cruel genetic illness called Huntington’s Disease. Pretty much every major decision I ever made was based on the (mistaken) belief that my life would be over by the time I was 40. And one of those decisions was (as a single parent) I should work every hour god sends to provide for my family before I become ill and couldn’t work.

In 2013 everything changed.

Over two decades as a global HR specialist was taking its toll on my health. I was flying all over the world, suffering from stress, anxiety, and definitely not feeling in control. I became seriously ill, knew something had to change, and resigned from my job. I re-trained, studied hard, took my 25 years in the people industry, and set up my coaching business.

In 2017 my first book “Your Life, Your Way: A Practical Guide To Getting Your S**t Together”. No-one was more surprised than me when it climbed the best seller charts! I’m still at risk from HD, but no longer live in its shadow.

If I can write a new chapter in the book of life,
then so can you.


Creating the life that you want.
