Welcome to Toto - self discovery

Welcome to my website, you’ve already taken the first step towards making positive change.  Whether you are seeking to make changes on a personal level, to your career journey or develop yourself, or your staff, professionally this website will show you how.

Here is a great place to be - you will find how to make life changes in a number of ways.

  • 1:1 Life coaching – gain clarity, unlock your potential, find the way forward
  • 1:1 Career coaching – career guidance knowledge and experience combined with coaching practice provide a magical mix to support your career journey, wherever it takes you
  • Small group work – personal development in a range of areas focussing on developing ways to handle life and its many uncertainties
  • Work with organisations – either 1:1 or in groups, to support career progression, personal/professional development or small research projects.


So what makes this a great place to be?

  • My career and learning theories gained from postgraduate qualifications, backed by my own career journey experiences, which has presented many twists and turns, means I can walk the talk
  • Starting work with few qualifications, my journey has included periods of unemployment, temporary, contract, employed and self employed work as well as voluntary work and redundancy
  • I have worked in roles across the commercial, public and voluntary sectors
  • True to my degree major I have consistently engaged in lifelong learning – adult teaching certificate, MA and PGCert in career guidance and ILM level 5 in coaching, as well as continuing professional development
  • My adult teaching qualification and teaching experience has led me to teach a range of courses – from yoga, through Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway® and career development across a career journey; to name but a few
  • My work experience in higher education and postgraduate qualifications provided an opportunity to undertake several applied research projects using both quantitative and qualitative data collection and analysis methods; I have a real interest in understanding the impact of personal experiences, what can be learnt and what could be developed


Therefore, I am excellently placed to support you and/or your staff on their journey in life, whether through 1:1 or group work, with making changes personally or professionally or with career journeys, wherever they lead.

Read on to find out how to move forward on any of these aspects.

I look forward to meeting you and sharing your journey of self discovery.
