Hi, as the founder of The Kids Life Studio® and the Kids Life Coach Academy, leading a global team of Kids Life Coaches that I have trained and certified, there is still no greater pleasure than when I am coaching children! With over two decades experience working with children as a teacher, a school counsellor and Kids Life Coach, I enjoy seeing children flourish and grow when they are equipped with the right tools.
I have a large range of experience but my true passion is in building resilience in families. I believe that every child is born a leader and it is a parents responsibility to nurture that and to equip their children to deal with the ups and downs of life. There is where I come in as a “Secret Parent”, because success is a mindset that can be learnt at a very young age and when I coach children and their parents, I support them to see challenges as growth opportunities rather than obstacles. Every family can benefit from my unique style of resilience coaching since I have worked with thousands of families across the world ranging from street children to the children of foreign diplomats.

Although I now spend most of my time training adults the fundamentals of my Kids Life Coaching model that I developed in 2003, I sill reserve some special time just for children! For this reason, I enjoy being invited into schools or corporate organisations to offer talks and workshops based on my books:
The Secret Parent,
Zeal the Zebra shows his True Colours,
The Zeal Challenge and
Discovering your child’s inner leader through Kids Life Coaching (soon to be released).
I am an inspired contributor to children globally and involved in a large scale global family resilience research project through Queen Mary University in London as a Research Fellow. Despite this, I still take on a limited number of children per annum for individual coaching and I specialise in supporting parents who themselves are leaders in their own chosen career and value the same for their family. I also run the occasional group family resilience building coaching programmes in my local area and I do all of this hands on work because it fills my cup and it is a great honour to be a change maker for children.
I try to live by my personal life motto:
• Be kind. Always.
• Be truthful. Always.
• Be fair. Always.
• Be yourself. Always.

I look forward to coaching your family to build their resilience and walking the journey alongside you.
