c8506fb51baf669ebe115f685b79baa5I love helping people to enjoy life more through communicating assertively for others. I’ve been a freelance trainer for more than 20 years and have run more assertiveness courses than I can remember. One fascinating thing – almost all the course participants were lovely people. I can barely remember anyone who wasn’t.

These days I spend more time being a Cognitive Hypnotherapist and writing. I’ve written 11 self-help books and training manuals and one novel Winner Takes All. I also write blogs for two companies. I’ve successfully completed two Creative Writing courses with the Open University and am currently a student on an MA in Professional Writing, taking the fiction options.

I live in Cambridge with my husband Rick, who is a constant source of support and inspiration in my writing. And I’m fortunate that my two daughters and three grandchildren all live close by.

I am a volunteer for Addenbrookes Charitable Trust. I get to do all sorts of things for them – write patients’ success stories for their publicity, have my photo taken collecting those big cheques you see in newspapers, selling goods on their stall in out-patients and all sorts of odd jobs.
