My dad, a talented amateur boxer.


My dad was a talented amateur boxer and admired, Muhammad Ali’s boxing ability.

Ali faced and fought many challenges, in and out of the ring.


“The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses – behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights.”

Muhammad Ali


My dad tackled his personal challenges with similar determination. A serious injury ended his boxing hopes and dreams when I was only 7 years old. A shattered ankle created a wake of devastation that ended his chance to dance like Ali and changed the lives of our whole family.

We moved to a new country so my dad could rebuild his life. My mum had to work hard to support us.

With my different accent, I felt out of place. People made fun of how I spoke. Children called me stupid and laughed at me. Inside it hurt, but I never shared my pain. I learned to be silent to avoid judgment and criticism.

My accent began to change as I tried to fit in, and returning to my homeland, I felt like a misfit once again. I was sad. Like my dad, I felt I’d missed my opportunity to dance through life.

Why do I share my family story?

My dad’s a fighter. His strength and determination helped him learn how to walk and work again. He never had the chance to box professionally. Instead, he chose to pass on his knowledge and skill to the next generation of boxers and to take pride in their progress and success.

As a counsellor, I help my clients begin to realise how our inner child plays out in adult life and how our conditioning moulds and shapes us. The work we do together helps them understand their subconscious self-critical beliefs and behaviours, so they can learn how to dance and live more fully.

It’s so crucial for me to build trust with my clients from the very first session. We work collaboratively using techniques to empower, with new learning at each session.

I’m proud to have built a thriving counselling business, and if you’re a qualified counsellor or part way through your training, I can help you to do the same.

I work with entrepreneurs and therapists to overcome self-doubt and unleash their own potential. My new Mindset Reset Method Programme for Counsellors is a 6-month programme with step-by-step guidance to help you set up in private practice.

The Mindset Reset Method can help you:

▪ master feelings of overwhelm

▪ reset the behaviours that are holding you back

▪ face your fears and help you find your ideal clients

▪ have confidence in your counselling knowledge and skill

▪ build a successful private practice
