"we noticed a steady change in her self-esteem, her self-confidence grew, and she finally developed some self-acceptance, improved her social skills and really came out of her shell. She just seemed happier all round - which came as a great relief."

About me


I was that shy, quiet child who never spoke in class and constantly worried what others thought of her. Who was bullied, struggled to make friends, and found speaking in class and to her peers almost impossible. However, now things couldn't be more different. After being told at 16 that I was too old for a career in dance, I went on to dance professionally and eventually run and teach at my own dance school specialising in ballet, tap and modern. Whilst teaching dance, I realised my passion for helping young people to grow in self-confidence, overcome shyness and start to believe in themselves. I passed my dance school on at the end of 2020 to become a qualified student life coach, specialising in helping young people to develop their self-esteem and grow in self-confidence so that they can feel happier and less anxious. I still teach ISTD and RAD dance classes and am now blending movement, acting and traditional coaching to revolutionise confidence and emotional health support for young people. I help them to let go of comparison and learn to love and accept themselves and in doing so become the happiest version of themselves both inside and outside the dance studio. I believe that you are far more capable than you think, you might just sometimes need a little help.

Your child has everything they need to succeed inside them, let's help them to bring it out.
