Meet some people who've worked with me...

I work with Abena one-to-one. Abena is very effective at helping me clarify my goals and keeps me accountable to my plan of action. She is very knowledgeable and energetic. Her love of continuous learning is contagious as is her zest. Abena has been a positive and encouraging force in my life since we met.

After attending Abena’s group program, I am able to let go of small things that always bother me and move out of my comfort zone. I feel light as a feather. I now give myself more time to know me. I realised I was kind to others, but not to myself. Thanks Abena - you are our “ROCKSTAR!”

I am a proud to be a committed advocate for DEIJ (diversity, equity, inclusion and justice) initiatives. I do all I can to ensure my coaching space is a safe space for all. I actively, intentionally, explicitly invite you to connect if you are BAME, BIPoC, LGBTQIA2s+, or a member of any other minority group(s). This also applies to DEIJ activists and allies. You receive priority bookings, additional supporting resources, and access to a kindred spirit - we need to look after each other.

I have had a long journey to get to the life of flourishing and self-acceptance that I have today. Of course, I'm always a work in progress but my experiences offer you a shortcut towards healing and empowerment so you can truly flourish.

Whether you have felt discriminated against, ignored, or simply 'different', know that I value you as you are. I see you. You do not need to be 'fixed' - I am here to help grow your awareness about just how powerful you are. We all deserve to be seen in our full humanity, and whatever your level of individuality, I truly believe it is a gift to unwrap.

Across more than 2 decades as a teacher, trainer, presenter, and coach I have worked with individuals from hugely-diverse backgrounds. I deeply appreciate the complexities, challenges, and gifts of intersectionality. Maybe I haven't met the unique gift that is you, yet I am always learning and reflecting. I embrace the opportunity to learn together as we move toward the ideal life you envision and create.

One last thing...

My mum is my role-model, managing to raise 5 kids on her own - she always made sure we were fed, clothed, and sheltered. She was as imperfectly perfect as I am today, and it's from her I first learned compassion and resilience. Despite her hard-work and sacrifices, I couldn't help but feel the lack when I didn't have access to life-changing experiences others were able to pay for. This is just one of the reasons I will find creative ways to serve as many as I can. If you are truly committed to putting in the effort to transform your life, we will find a way to make it happen. My rates operate on a sliding scale, so feel free to reach out and learn more.

About Me

“But where are you really from?"

As a child growing up in Northern Ireland, I got this question daily - sometimes even several times a day. Even though my answer was always, "Here," it didn't seem to satisfy people. My Brown skin in a sea of White made me stand out, no matter how much I tried to blend into the background. It was a question that told me I didn't belong, wasn't like everyone else, and never would be. 

So, I made a decision and took action. Over 25 years ago, I decided that if I didn't have a satisfying answer, I would create a reality where I did - one that satisfied me. That decision pushed me to think about who I wanted to be, what my history could possibly become, without trying to be 'normal.' It encouraged me to take risks such as leaving my home country to live and work abroad. It led me to always stretch beyond my comfort zone. Now, I am 'from' the sum total of my experiences and learning. That once-irritating question took me on a journey to discover what truly made a life of meaning and purpose - I'm grateful.

For many years, that meaning and purpose came from my love of education. I taught kids, teens, and adults; I trained; I presented...and I never stopped learning. I continue that learning today through my doctoral studies focusing on Flourishing (Positive Psychology), Equity, and Education. I've unsurprisingly had many challenges along the way...not least in learning to accept myself as a perfectly flawed human being (just like everyone else). I practice self-forgiveness, self-appreciation, and how to let things go. It's a never-ending process, but the efforts so far have been transformational.

Fast-forward to today. I live in a place that is the manifestation of my idea of 'paradise' as a kid. I have a partner who I've been able to grow with to raise 3 energetic, challenging, and characterful children. My relationships are intentional, deep, and nourishing. I am clear about my values and feel no need to compromise on them. The most surprising thing of all? That although it was never my goal, following my passions and values has lead to a life of abundance in every way. Whether that's my upgraded perception or objective fact, it's time to pay it forward.

I believe everyone has the capacity to live a life full of gratitude, love, and flourishing - and yes, that includes YOU! Today, I am blessed to work with others to bring their dream lives to reality through coaching, mindfulness, and mentorship. Discover how we will work together to design the life you want. All it takes is the very first step.
