Financial Resilience Coach


I am passionate about financial resilience.

I know what it feels like to not have money and how restrictive it can be. I believe everyone should have access to basic safety and essential comforts.

I also know what it feels like to feel empowered when we have a solid financial foundation to withstand a storm, and I want you to feel that too.

I qualified as a chartered management accountant in 2006, after gaining an accountancy degree at the University of Stirling in 1998, and successfully passing the required work experience through many various roles in small businesses throughout Scotland. I then headed up various accountancy departments before opening a small accountancy practice and financial coaching business in 2012. My ongoing training in accounting and tax, together with my ongoing business experiences, give me the credentials to help you.

In addition to the above, I have always been keen to understand why we do the thing we do, and in 2020 gained a second degree in psychology through the Open University. I have since been exploring it further in the context of behavioural economics.

Furthermore, I have published 3 business books and wrote hundreds of blogs/ articles relating to finance, tax, the business owner’s journey, and the psychology of money and tax.

Yes, I am ambitious, hardworking, and sometimes insane 😉 but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
