Why Don’t Zebra’s Get Ulcers?

There are predators around zebra’s day and night and so they are under constant threat of attack! Their lives must be stressful and full of anxiety.

But zebra’s don’t get ulcers because they only release their stress hormones in the event of an ACTUAL emergency. They live in the here and now and they don’t worry about the future. They don’t worry about what hasn’t happened yet! It is our wonderful human imagination that causes us to feel anxiety and not live in the moment. Our mind and body pay the price of that. Be More Zebra!

Executive Career Coach

I am a career coach with a passion for helping clients answer their What Next Question. I support clients to recognise and appreciate what they are great at. This leads to confidence and belief and the impact they can have in their work. We identify what purposeful and meaningful work means to them and environments where they can thrive. I achieve this through a highly successful approach to coaching the whole person to create long-lasting change. For 20 years I worked within the travel industry. I loved supporting my teams to play to their strengths, find solutions to the challenges, make conscious decisions about the direction of their career and enable them to achieve their career aspirations whilst delivering their best performance. As a working mum I also fully appreciate the need for a great work-life balance! This can be achieved by doing purposeful and meaningful work in an environment that is right for you. This could be a new company, a new role, or starting your own business.  I changed my career after 20 years and started my own business with the support of my coach who provided the safe space which I now provide for my clients to explore what is possible for them. Whilst much of my work is 1:1 I often provide a similar framework for teams looking to raise their self-awareness to influence how they deliver in a high-performance culture. I live in Oxfordshire with my husband and our two children and an energetic dog! My clients are international due to the success of online coaching. I would love to explore in more detail how I can help you get clarity on your next career decision. To find out more visit to arrange a no-obligation call.
