Love. That’s what really matters. Love, and the people we share it with. The last few years have reminded us of this, with great clarity.

In 2019, I trained as an Independent Civil Celebrant and have the privilege of working with Love, and real life Love Stories every week.  I honour families by creating the important rituals & ceremonies that mark all of our lives; working with commitment and meaning.

It could be a Wedding, Handfasting, Vow Renewal, Baby Naming or Adoption Ceremony. They are all about love; and treasuring the joyful transitions with those who mean the most to us. You will be reassured and guided through the process with confidence and grace,

At the end of a life, when it’s time to say goodbye and honour a loved one, I help families create a beautiful bespoke tribute, with a Funeral or Memorial service.

Working in the Midlands, mainly Birmingham & Leicester, but happy to travel by arrangement. To find out more, please contact me to arrange an initial chat, with no obligation.

This role combines my professionally honed presentation skills from 25 yrs in radio, with the writing experience as a former Birmingham Poet Laureate, I create bespoke services to treasure. As an Ambassador for the Prince’s Trust, I’ve loved hosting events that shine a light on how amazing all human beings can be.

I also run Mindfulness & Writing sessions for wellbeing; customised for businesses, community groups & individuals. Developing these sessions combines Mindfulness techniques with creativity, warmth and humour. 

Sessions run regularly online, with participants from around the world, and sometimes I run them in person, with tea and biscuits. Both are conducive to creativity!

I provide toolkits of simple 3 minute practices that work in the real world, with no need to sit cross legged on a mountain top for weeks.

You’ll hear me doing some radio work for fun, preferably covering shows without 4am alarm calls. When not working, you’ll find me in the garden, curled up with a stack of books or busy with the latest kitchen adventure… slow cooker raspberry brownies being the current favourite.
