I love to see people discover, make connections, thrive, and flourish.
My life of 62 years is a colourful tapestry of beauty and discovery, arrival and welcome, celebration, gratitude, exhilaration and contentment. Punctuated at times, as are all our lives, by pain, loss and farewell, vulnerability and uncertainty, dislocation and turbulence.
I have been enriched, challenged, and inspired beyond measure by so many people, places, and experiences. By my parents, family and friends, by my colleagues and students during a 14 year career teaching Classics and in the last 21 years running my retail business, itsallgreek.co.uk.
And now, as a qualified professional in coaching and EFT, I am still a little bewildered, but totally delighted, by the synthesis of the various strands in my life to date. I am so grateful to those who have nurtured my passion, energy, and enthusiasm along the way, and to those who continue to do so.
My intention is to keep on making a difference where I can.
I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.
