Increase Your Motivation

Our Method

Energy optimisation

We prioritise energy optimisation, actively seeking opportunities to amplify and align it for enhanced performance, whether on an individual or collective level.

We specialise in supporting organisations, teams, and individuals facing challenges such as:

  • High levels of burnout, stress, and anxiety;
  • Subpar engagement levels; and
  • Diminished confidence.

Our objective is to empower individuals with the necessary tools to elevate their energy levels, bolster engagement, and enhance overall well-being—essential elements for achieving peak performance.

Many thanks for a truly positive day. It was so good and very helpful indeed to have you guiding us. Onwards and upwards towards progress."


Invest In Your People

As a lifelong resident of Croydon, I’ve always harboured a thirst for independence, a drive to achieve, and a strong desire to earn parental approval.

With a natural affinity for numbers, I pursued a career as a Chartered Accountant, following in my father’s footsteps, despite initially lacking the enthusiasm for such a path.

Fast forward to 2013, amidst my father’s declining health and a fortuitous career hiatus due to redundancy, I took a moment to reflect on my life and professional journey. Supported by various professionals, I came to realise there were alternative paths, prompting my personal transformation.

In addition to shedding some counterproductive behavioural patterns, I redirected my career trajectory. Drawing upon my accumulated business, management, and training acumen, I co-founded Islanda with my partner Dan. Our mission: to assist others in overcoming similar hurdles.

Becoming a certified coach and immersing myself in neuroscience and emotional intelligence training, I’ve amalgamated my experiences as a Chartered Accountant, business owner, and mother of three. This diverse background equips me with a comprehensive outlook and a versatile set of skills to guide, motivate, and counsel clients.

For me, nothing surpasses witnessing the moment when a client experiences a breakthrough, leading to a transformative shift in mindset or behaviour. It’s not just a victory for them but also impacts the lives of those they influence—a truly gratifying outcome for all involved.

It was the best thing I have ever done, you were never judgemental and you really listened. I feel a lot more positive and I am making small steps to live my best life. I would recommend it to everyone.


Wellbeing Programme

Our Wellbeing Programme transcends the conventional approach of offering wellbeing gift packs or occasional workshops.

It’s a transformative initiative designed to integrate wellbeing into everyday life, fostering new perspectives, decision-making frameworks, and problem-solving approaches.

Much like mastering the art of riding a bike, these skills become ingrained, offering sustainable benefits that permeate every facet of existence. It truly embodies the concept of a perpetual gift, continually enriching the lives of participants.
