Are you a late-diagnosed autistic woman or teenage girl looking to embrace your unique strengths, unlock your full potential, and find happiness in every aspect of your life?
My mission is to empower you to thrive in a world that may not always understand your neurodivergence. As an autistic woman myself, I believe that being autistic is a remarkable gift. I am here to help you harness your strengths, overcome challenges, and lead a fulfilling life guided by positivity and self-acceptance.
My coaching sessions focus on fostering optimism, building resilience, and cultivating a mindset that promotes personal growth and well-being. No two autistic individuals are alike, and neither are their journeys. I work closely with you to create a personalised coaching plan that aligns with your goals and aspirations, ensuring that your progress is meaningful and sustainable.
My online coaching sessions provide a safe, non-judgmental, and inclusive environment where you can express yourself freely, explore your identity, and build self-confidence without fear of criticism or misunderstanding. My coaching isn't just about coping; it's about thriving.
I empower you to embrace your neurodivergence, discover your strengths, and live a life that aligns with your true self. Whether you're navigating the challenges of late-diagnosis, seeking to improve your self-esteem, or striving to build more fulfilling relationships, I'm here to guide you on your journey to happiness and self-fulfillment.
Don't let your late-diagnosis define your limitations. Embrace your uniqueness, unlock your potential, and lead a life filled with positivity and purpose.

I went into coaching just as "life coaching" was taking off. I was determined to train rigorously and to follow the path of positive psychologists like Robert Biswas-Diener, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Barbara Fredrickson, and Martin Seligman. I did not want to be a "life coach"; instead, I wanted to specialise in applied positive psychology using coaching techniques to support women and teenage girls. I have experienced counselling, therapy, CBT, psychotherapy and psychoanalysis - and even though they all have their distinct place in the seasons of our cognitive and emotional life - positive psychology coaching was what resonated with me the most.
I have an MSc (Merit) in Applied Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology from the University of East London. I am also a member of the European Mentoring and Coaching Council and The British Psychological Society. I combine my coaching with teaching and consultancy projects. Prior to embarking on my Master's degree, I had an international career spanning over two decades in Media, not-for-profit and Education. I speak fluent Portuguese and good French and have lived and worked across the Continent of Europe for much of my life. I have worked for and collaborated with illustrious pan-European organisations such as UEFA, the European Commission, the European Union Youth Orchestra & The British Council.
I am a qualified teacher and have years of experience in the independent schools sector. As well as group sessions with Prep/Junior pupils, I also have ample experience coaching Years 5 - 9 online (aged 9/10 upwards). Many of my clients would self-identify as "autistic high-flyers", "high-functioning", or "late-diagnosed autistic". I use my experience and research alongside my understanding of positive psychology to support clients for short periods of concentrated, goal-oriented psychology coaching.
