I grew up on the outskirts of Paris (France) in the ‘70s. I attended a local school before returning to the UK at the age of 19 (settling in London). It was at this time I first realised I didn’t quite fit in. On the outside I was English but, on the inside, I was French. I felt different and not necessarily in a good way. At the age of 24, I joined the finance world, primarily focusing on using my French language ability and, before I knew it, 25 years had gone by.
Due to circumstances beyond my control, I found myself no longer required in the finance world and it didn’t take long for me to realise I hadn’t quite fitted in there either. Some of this might feel familiar or completely different but either way please get in touch and we can explore this together.
Growing up in a different country to the one I was born and having friends/acquaintances from many different cultures, taught me to understand, appreciate and accept differences in people. What I had to learn was to accept that in myself!
When not working, I love spending time with my dogs, playing tennis, scuba-diving and enjoying the simple pleasures in life.
I am a stepmum, auntie, godmum and wife.
I am fluent in French so can offer sessions in both languages.
