About Me

Transformational coach and AirBnB superhost

Kite Surfer
Woman Whisperer
Superfood Acro Yogi
Splenic Projector (Human Design)
'Best Year of my Life' coaching program since 2017

My mission in life is to live with grace and power and to be a catalyst for others.

My philosophy for living is 'Minimalist Abundance'. I have everything that I need and nothing that I do not. I like my space to be clean, clear and functional on every level - physically, energetically and socially.

NB I GET A LOT OF REQUESTS AND UNFORTUNATELY DON'T HAVE TIME TO ANSWER ALL OF THEM. I do try to respond to personal messages where someone has taken the time to read my profile...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm focussed on my current projects so don't have as much time to host any more but still try to do so when I can. I would love to meet travellers who are as confident in their own immunity as I am.

If you are more afraid of COVID-1984 than you are of your government then I am not the right host for you. NB I only host unvaxxed guests as I am affected by shedding. Please TELL ME YOUR VAX STATUS with your enquiry - sadly it seems that most CSers are involved in the clinical trials for this new technology...


If it is something to do with living a more healthy and inspired life then I will probably be interested in it. If it isn't then I probably won't be...
