A bit more about me


When people ask me what I do, there is a short and a long answer.  


I call my self a Coach/Therapist to keep it simple. And I am a marriage councillor, mentor, advisor, clinical sexologist, sex coach, relationship and intimacy coach, life coach and NLP Master Practitioner,  all of  which is a bit of a mouthful.  


I started coaching and became a NLP practitioner in 2004. From there I began a journey of learning. I would see a need or a gap and go fill it.  Today I am closing in on 200 days of Continued Professional Development and more than 750 recorded client hours since I started Partnership Matters in 2019. Between 2004 and 2019 likely another 2000+ hours.

My history

Definitely a late bloomer no Uni for me which is why my journey has been one of glorious discovery.

Delivered bread, waitressed, ran wine bars in the city, sold cars then office furniture for about 10 years, became a sales and marketing director for a research company. In 2004 I started Buster Burke Limited, an advisory/investment company, with my husband a former MD, COO, CTO. He was the visionary and I was operations.  I was a Director there for 15 years where, alongside my operational work and running the farm, I began to coach all sorts of different and amazing people for all sorts of different reasons. I found my passion. 

I started Partnership Matters Ltd in 2019 because I saw a real need for the work I do over many, many years.


My passions.

To bring wisdom, real experience and breadth of knowledge that helps my clients do the deep work it takes to choose and experience change so they can live an epic life. 


That and my horses, my dogs, my farm, great food, amazing hotels, 1000 thread count sheets, a cheese soufflé, the people I love, courses and a challenge. (in no particular order)
