PLR Coach

Dream Coach


I run a busy practice teaching both one-to-one at my clinic in London and internationally over Skype, FaceTime and Zoom. I love teaching people from so many different backgrounds, from the USA to UK, Argentina to Malaysia, Oman, South Africa, Sweden and more. From my work I've found that cultural and environmental factors can also influence eyesight, as much as visual habits and lifestyle.

Read more about me and my teaching practice below:


I qualified as a Bates Teacher in 1998, having been a Manufacturer's Agent for 16 years in the highly competitive housewares industry, here in the UK and abroad.

I became interested in the Bates Method for 2 reasons: I hated wearing glasses for my short sight and astigmatism and was aware of the possible consequences of having a family history of glaucoma and cataract going back 3 generations on the maternal side.

In childhood I had a divergent squint and at the age of six I was unable to learn to read, i.e. I could see the letters but they made no sense. This now would have been diagnosed as a form of dyslexia. So I work a lot with children with squint (strabismus) and other eye conditions. See Testimonials here.

I was so impressed and impassioned by the Method that after I had dispensed with lenses, I decided that this was to be my profession for life!
