Let’s get deeper into wellbeing . The YEAR OF WELLBEING journey has begun. Join us ( see blog/ video )

I am fascinated by the concept of wellbeing and linking it to prayer.  Since recovering from a breakdown and founding a wellbeing charity I have found it helpful to write and share my words. I love to open up discussions about better wellbeing habits. is a place to invite you into this world of wellbeing through words.

My books include

"Slow down, Show up and Pray"

"5 Ways to Inner Wellbeing"( ebook only)

"A-Z of Wellbeing "

(all published by Authentic Media)

Home: Welcome


It's a weird thing when your vulnerability becomes the most fruitful thing in your life. Having a breakdown several years ago whilst busy being a Christian leader, a wife, Mum and a teacher didn't seem like a good thing and I would never want to go through it again. But because of that year I discovered deeper inner habits and found ways to share my need for wellbeing within the community and church.

 I didn't set out to be an author. I am just fascinated by the concept of wellbeing and the priority of prayer and what that could look like in our everyday habits. 

I set up this space ,, with the goal of inviting others into the wellbeing conversation through the written word.
