- Becoming an inspiring youth & community leader

- Your emotional well-being, identity & confidence

- Listening to your calling to help the world

- Discovering your true potential and purpose

- Not worrying about what others think about you

- Achievement, success, impact & better results

- Exploring the world, taking a gap year or having the confidence to go for that dream adventure

Mentoring & coaching focuses on where you are now and helps you to move forward to where you want to be. We do not focus on the past. It is NOT therapy or psychological help. If you're suffering from a mental illness you should first speak to your doctor or therapist.

After a very difficult time in my teens when life felt hopeless and I hit challenge after challenge, I gained some inspiration and changed my life around. I left school and studied a course I had passion for, in a college miles away from home to find new peers and possibilities. I found freedom from the bad stuff, the hurt and the anger that I'd held inside and I achieved excellent grades for the first time. That gave me the fire I needed to put 100% into my 'wild' dreams, which had seemed nearly impossible until then. I took positive risks, worked every day and night from 16 years old to self-fund my studies, own home and volunteer placements. All to gain that vital experience to achieve my degree and dream job, which I got by the age of 22. After that, many more milestones were reached like my post grad, world travels and career change. I'm no stranger to crossing massive barriers in life, even loosing my dream job due to a bad car accident, leaving me with long-term injuries that stopped me driving to the nature reserves I loved working in so much. Yet, I never gave up and saw opportunity for a new start instead of a bad end to dwell on. I held onto that future vision and eventually fulfilled my big aspirations; worked in wildlife conservation, stayed with a tribe in the Amazon Rainforest, met wild gorillas, walked to Machu Picchu, visited the Galapagos islands, started several youth projects and led many programs, bought a forest and lived in Africa etc. My life lessons, positive attitude and gratitude for all of life's experiences, the good and bad, made me the strong, enthusiastic, intuitive and bold, yet gentle and caring leader and person that I am today. Now I aspire to inspire others!
