Having previously worked as a Financial Controller at Airbus UK for more than 35 years, I took voluntary release in 2021 to become a Financial Coach.

I made this career move because I realised how little people in the UK talked about their finances, I had seen how money concerns can cause individuals to worry about their finances which in turn can impact their health, relationships and their work.

My aim is to understand what the individual want to achieve in life, their hopes and dreams for the future, to provide them with clarity to make the right financial decisions by improving their financial knowledge and with guidance, to help them achieve their future goals.

Regardless of age, salary or background, personal finances can seem complicated my goal is to demystify this topic and provide non judgmental guidance to help people enjoy both their current life and their future life.
