“Some failure in life is inevitable. It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all—in which case, you fail by default.” J.K. Rowling.

Hi lovely,

I’m a Dr Martha Beck Certified Life Coach and a qualified teacher. I’m a contributing blogger for ‘The Huffington Post,’ ‘Tiny Buddha,’ ‘Mind Body Green,’ and many other websites.

I coach sensitive, creative women to help them find and follow their purpose, right work and right life.

I also work with women who want to use their writing to expand their work in the world (e.g. through guest posting) and women who are thinking of becoming a life coach / health coach or who are in the process of becoming a coach.
