I am a training provider and coach with decades of experience of working with & bringing out the best in people of all age groups and from all walks of life! Whether working 1-2-1 or in group workshops I have the necessary skills, abilities, experience, & personality to inspire and motivate you to achieve your goals!

I specialise in delivering First Aid (including Automated External Defibrillator), and Presentation Skills. Training can be arranged within your own organisation at your premises or via my open courses.

I have 27 years experience practising first aid in real emergency situations in Greater Manchester Fire & Rescue Service to support my knowledge and qualifications.

My philosophy is simple but extremely effective... Aspire-Act-Achieve!

Aspire: Set your goals and create your action plan!
Act: Put your action plan in motion my taking appropriate positive actions.
Achieve: Keep on working hard until you reach your goals!

I also believe that body & mind are inextricably linked and therefore issues with one will inevitably affect the other both positively and negatively! Because of this when dealing with clients I will always help them to look at their lives holistically.
