The Local Core was created in 2016 with the aim to inspire you to do more of what makes you stand out.

It is a resourceful and ever-growing venture based in Gloucestershire (UK), dedicated to Creative Personal and Professional Development, within businesses and communities, as well as with individuals on a 1:1 basis. We fully cherish diversity and are passionate about enabling personal growth for all of our clients, through self-exploration and creative expression, which are more natural ways of achieving this goal. We believe emotional, personal and social competencies (Emotional Intelligence) play a vital role in achieving success in all areas of our lives.


Our main aim is to create and share ways to enhance the unique potential we all possess within, which we often only realise once we are faced with challenges to overcome, or have built more confidence and trust in ourselves moving forward. We aim to differentiate it and offer you tools to help you grow and enjoy this process, starting from wherever you are in your own journey.

On the TLC website, you will find a wealth of information about bespoke local creative projects, photo galleries, as well as upcoming seasonal events and workshops. On my main blog you will find articles and success stories, as well as some useful tips and information about creative growth, in addition to how we aim to develop and promote diverse local talents.

Plus, I have my ‘Inspiration Corner’, where I get to share my own creative expression with you and you get to know me further too.

I hope you will enjoy learning why it all matters, and the effort I invest each day to bring about positive changes to the lives of local people and businesses. I hope you will join me on this journey.

Get in touch today if you want to learn more, and would like TLC to work with you to propel your life and team transformations. Whether you are an individual, group or work team, together we will be able to devise the most suitable ways to achieve your aims.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Enjoy and stay inspired.

What lies before us and what lies behind us are small matters compared to what lies within us.

And when we bring what is within out into the world, we express our full potential!
