This work taught me how to be who I am (including accepting all the parts that I don't want you to see), transform my relationship with myself and the people I love, work and play with, speak my truth more often (even when it's uncomfortable), love 'not knowing' so much because then I can tune in to what's emerging in my life and in the moment,  and be more wildly, messily, gloriously me, than any other work I've ever done.

I'd love to share it with you.


I am a Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator (which includes training in both The Daring Way™ and Rising Strong™) working with people 1:1 and through workshops to facilitate deep experiential learning based on the research of Dr Brené Brown.

The curriculum is designed to dive in and dig deep into the things that get in the way of us living an authentic life - one where we feel SUPPORTED, BRAVE, PURPOSEFUL, and FULLY ALIVE.  The workshops use video footage of Brene, storytelling and experiential exercises in a group setting. During the process we explore topics such as trust, vulnerability, courage, shame and worthiness.

We examine the thoughts, emotions and behaviours that are holding us back and we identify the new choices and practices that will move us toward more authentic and wholehearted living. The primary focus is on developing shame resilience skills and developing daily practices that transform the way we live, work and lead.


Which one is right for you?

The Daring Way™ - is for you if you want to be braver with your life, understand better where you are holding yourself back and how to ask for the support you need, and transform your relationship with vulnerability.

Rising Strong™ - is for you if you have struggled with disappointment, failure or heartbreak and want to know how to use your struggle as a call to courage, and write a brave new ending for your story.


An invitation to try living another way.

Come and work with me and a small group of like-minded others, in a safe, supportive environment.

YOU are important, your story matters, and we want to see who you are.

You'll be held with respect and kindness, as you discover and transform your relationship with the patterns that are getting in the way of you living a wholehearted and fully-felt life. 

Brave doesn't always mean fierce.

Learn to be ok with not knowing.

Learn to how to fail with grace, grit, even celebration!

True authenticity is a daily practice.

Once you've felt it, you won't want to go back.

I run open workshops in the beautiful English Lake District.

You can also commission a 2 or 3 day The Daring Way™ or Rising Strong™ workshop for your group, team or organisation, anywhere in the North of England or Scotland.

Here's what people just like you said when asked what they would tell
someone considering booking on a workshop.

The Daring Way

"YES !!!"

"Yes; Do it!"

"This work is deep, powerful and an opportunity should it pose itself to you should be considered a gift to yourself. It may help set yourself free from aspects of all that previously held you back."

"Definitely do it! And bring friends."

"Be brave, some of the content is emotionally difficult and intense, but absolutely worthwhile."

"This course will transform your life if you really embrace it, you are honest to your innermost self and you are willing to face things which you might prefer to hide away inside."

"Absolutely do this. If you show up and be seen, it will change your world."

"Do it - I think most people could benefit."

"If you are looking for new insights and resources to support your personal and professional struggles and opportunities, the Daring Way is for you.""

"Go for it! You will not regret it... and while you're at it, you may as well book the Rising Strong one also."

"Do it. You will not regret it. Go into it with an open heart."

"Go with an open heart and open mind and be prepared to really connect with yourself and others in a supportive, welcoming environment."

Rising Strong

"Personally, I think doing The Daring Way helped me a lot with Rising Strong so I would suggest doing that if you haven't already. If you have, then Rising Strong will help you find ways to unpick the stuck parts. Do it!"

"Do it! Go with openness and willingness and it will have a huge impact if you implement it."

"Do it! We all need it... your life will be a little (or a lot) better having gone through it... I think you should do the Daring Way first though.. Do both."

"If you are struggling emotionally, (and you may not know you are until you attend!) it will make you dig deep and provide resources to support you develop."

"Get booked, lean in, show up and shine!!!"

"Do it!"
