We are each made for goodness, love and compassion. Our lives are transformed as much as the world is when we live with these truths.

Bringing Compassion to Life

Now more than ever, I believe the power of human connection, care, and compassion. We are all inherently doing the best we can and perfectly imperfect. Facing adversity and suffering is hard.

Yet if we could see the positive intention, gratitude and kindness at play, we could show more compassion to others and of course ourselves. The evidence speaks for itself: when we are fulfilled, we will thrive at work and at home.

Personal profile

Following many years in the NHS as a senior nurse and educator I founded my company in 2012.

Working with Scotland’s Ombudsman gave me a unique perspective about the emotional elements often associated with concerns and conflict.

And from there I have developed a whole suite of resources to support us communicating at our best, managing conflict and caring for ourselves in the rich rollercoaster of life.

I remain a registered nurse and teacher. And continue to learn using a number of approaches including Appreciative Inquiry, Neuro Linguistic Programming and Mindful Self Compassion.


Bringing well-being
and compassion to life

In order to be effective at work and at home, we must give ourselves the same care and compassion we provide to others.



I support individuals, teams and organisations to communicate as best they can. This includes the power of apology and forgiveness.
