Have you ever had a dream or idea and thought one day!!! Not sure where to start….. that was me, but now this is my one day….. the dream that became real. I find that in life and even business and relationships the missing link to success is emotional awareness, and more of you, the key to a successful life, relationship, project or business, understanding ourselves so we can get further and do better. Understanding our inner desires, what we want and who we are that gives purpose and why we do what we do. There are a lot of rational and logical ideas to help us, but not many solutions to understand how we feel, that effects our results, learn how we function to boost our motivation or deal with stress. I want to shake up your ideas about how to create a life, business project or relationship that inspires you and others, create new perspectives for success and do it with more fun and joy. I want you to see things through another angle of vision

Who am I

A visionary, a motivator, an insatiably curious individual that loves exploring. A sensitive creative soul that feels deeply. An innovative creator that has developed a bunch of tools to stay confident, assertive and empowered through the challenges and ups and downs of life

What I do – my passion

I help people find their passion, inner power and purpose to fullfill their dreams. My Passion is Creating, Innovation and people, researching and learning, learning about the human self and others. You will find me in a book or looking up the latest theories about the human being!!! I love to pass on that knowledge and create& design programs that help people evolve and grow

Life coaching

Why – my purpose

Motivation comes from purpose. I do what I do because I see people stuck in situations they are “‘putting up with” but have dreams of a better life and don’t necessarily believe in them, or know how to move forward, towards them. I want them to connect to their strength to keep going. I want to show them happiness is possible through learning how to fulfill your desires, turn things around, that you can dream it, plan it, create it and live it. Options that boost and inspire and create much more satisfaction.

Creating passion, power and purpose

What’s my Story!

For the past 10 years I have been on a journey to discover what life feels like from the inside out. I grew up in the UK always feeling a bit different, born in Australia to an Italian father and english mother. I never felt I fitted in, especially when my teachers at school said I hope you are going to be like your sister…….the moment I thought I had to be like everyone else… I consistently tried….and then tried to work out what was wrong with me when it wasn’t working, pushing shit uphill – it never worked!!.

Exploration, and experimentation!

It didn’t stop me exploring though, I spent the first half of my life in the travel business, having fun working as a tour guide and creating amazing experiences and holidays. However I felt guilty for having fun and making money enjoying myself, I thought I needed to be serious and get a career like everyone else, thinking that was stability, so I stopped. I tried the 9-5 and trying to find what I loved, experimenting, and tried to commit to one thing. It didn’t work, I was more committed to freedom, I never stuck to anything. I realised later that that is how you find your passions and why I am so good at what I do!!


However 9-5 didn’t cut it, I always felt there was something missing. So with an insatiable curiosity I went off to explore myself and the world and find more freedom. I ended up in France opening my own little cafe and juice bar, a childhood dream by the sea. The dream went well for a while, but came tumbling down when I lost my relationship. I got stressed trying to balance love and business, made mistakes, became a nag, didn’t realise what was important, chasing big things. I lost my purpose, my oomph, my joy. I had the wrong ideas about success and how life “should’ be, what a relationship ‘should’ be, how my business ‘should’ run, who I was, still trying to be like everyone else and doing it alone. I almost gave up, as a sensitive soul I struggled alone in my corner not sharing my feelings or asking for support. I contemplated suicide, but that was my breakthrough I realised I needed to commit, commit to getting out or commit to life. I decided life was a choice and I chose life…. I am resilient and courageous, something my dad taught me… when you commit to life, it commits back, and I got support, decided to retrain as a Coach…..and learn about my emotions, get the support I needed.


I got lost a few times, struggling to get my business going, not understanding my why and still listening to everyone else, comparing myself. Impatient to get it going I quit my job too soon, my savings dwindled. Thats where I found me, my creativity, my desires, my spirit. I had enough and had finally turned myself inwards to connect. I did my own little retreat from the world. Finally giving up on listening to others, to get rid of the ‘shoulds’ and everyone elses “shit” as I call it….. and taught myself a new way, to connect to the real S.H.I.T, listening to what my soul, heart, intuition and truth wanted. To follow my ideas, my passions and commit to me and my desires, make me happy and not everyone else.. (I remember the day I said to my current partner, I must be a shit coach I am not getting anywhere…..He said yes your are a “S.H.I.T” COACH, full of Soul, Heart, Intuition and Truth and from there the method was born). I learnt instead that I am a sensitive empath that has great intuitive talents and is an amazing networker and booster, instead of feeling wrong for who I was. I found through coaching the support I needed to bring it out, to believe in myself and my gifts of boosting peoples energy, and motivating them to bring them joy. It’s a myth that we can do it alone…..even the most successful people had support along the way….


Along the way I put together many tools to help myself get through those challenges of life, those transition moments, the place where you are before you get to where you want to be, my sensitivites, my emotions and stop dreaming. Dreaming used to be a way of coping for me, now I get back to reality and plan, create strategies and sturcture my ideas. I now use that energy in my business to teach others to learn how connecting to the real S.H.I.T is what its all about, dreaming, planning, creating and living. My objective is to give them the S.H.I.T.S the last S is for Satisfaction. It might be hard but it’s worth it…..work is never hard work when you enjoying yourself!!

The truth is you can earn money from doing what you love and make it successful, its just about finding a process, some strategies and focus…
