My Services

I specialise in birth trauma and perinatal mental health. I also write books, create courses & provide clinical supervision & business mentoring.

WORK WITH me

Gemini, INFJ, & 'Rebel' Tendency Type,  I break moulds (& wine glasses) often 

As a psychologist + entrepreneur, I’m the ultimate business coach & mentor. I use a compassion-focussed approach to inspire all the “I wonder” questions. Like, “am I actually having any fun with my business and mothering?”, and “do I really need to hustle & push so hard?"

About me

 Get my newsletter

Rather than use social media, I make a conscious choice to send a weekly email instead. You'll get insights about mothering, perinatal mental health, stuff I'm working on & a spot of whimsy.

 I love getting pen pals!  Slow down, breathe & delight in my random, whimisical stories.
