I was born and raised in Hungary. By the age of eight I knew I wanted to become a teacher.
Around the same time my cousin was born with Cerebral Palsy. He received outstanding help at the pioneering Peto Institute in Budapest: the birthplace of Conductive Education. This had a profound effect on me and changed my future aspirations.

So, in 1988 I graduated as a conductor-teacher. I had (and still have), a passion for transforming the lives of families who have children with Cerebral Palsy and Special Needs.
When I moved to England in 1992, I found more opportunities to share my passion for Conductive Education with families. I have had the privilege of working with hundreds of children, parents and siblings. Time and again, I have seen those families develop and grow. I have spent my whole career helping others to fulfill their potential.
I am now a life coach, specialising in Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND). All my knowledge helps me assist families, – with children/adults with SEND, and/or with low confidence and self-esteem – to live a happier and healthier life.

I live in Fareham. I have been married for twenty-six years. Our three children are aged twenty-five, twenty-one and fourteen.

In my spare time I enjoy reading, especially books about self-development, listening to music and going on long walks with my husband in the South Downs or our favorite route the El Camino De Santiago.

Whoopsadaisy shares my desire to do the best for the children and their families and support them to transform their lives. I feel honored to be a trustee at such a welcoming and friendly organisation.
