I am an Executive Success Coach at EClarity Coaching, Owner and Founder of Piffy & Egg, guest lecturer and speaker.
My businesses are fuelled by my mission to redefine the way the world sees mental health.
I created my businesses after leaving my career as an intensive care nurse. My JOY is Piffy & Egg, an eCommerce creating happiness through art in aid of the mental health charity, Mind. Using art therapy as a low level intervention for mental health recovery, all products are launched as part of wider campaigns taking each member of the community on a journey with Piffy & Egg towards self love, true connection and happiness. I am supported by mentors from The Prince’s Trust and Natwest Accelerator Programme as well as their partners such as Dell. We were featured on BBC news for Mental Health Awareness Week (UK) and ITV News for World Mental Health Day.
I created my second business, EClarity Coaching, to work with highly ambitious professionals before they reach burn out; guiding them on their path to success so they are no longer working tirelessly and feeling unfulfilled. I work with individuals and larger organisations alike. I have adapted methods from my career as an Intensive Care Nurse, community teaching and from my own recovery to really nurture and inspire my clients on their journey to happiness.
I also guest lecture at local universities and am involved in the recruitment and interviewing stages for perspective student nurses. My work in the health sector continues, and I am currently setting up the UK's first peer-led suicide survivors support group with Recovery College in Newcastle city centre which will be starting in January 2019. This is part of a UK wide project I am collecting data to support and role out across the country.
