Mastering the ART of Being Blind


Light Tange, white jacket, smile

Hello & Welcome !

If you are looking how to transform a life-obstacle into your next stepping stone to success – you’re in the right place! I can help you to view living with a challenge from a new vantage point.

Having been diagnosed with an incurable eye condition while still at school, my life-challenge has given me an unexpected opportunity to embrace change.



If you want to know how to:

  • say ‘yes’ to abundance and embrace uncertainty
  • seize a life-challenge and take hold of opportunity
  • let go of old ways to accept new gifts
  • treasure your existing skills & nurture new potential


GREAT! – you’re not alone – life is a shared experience


Whether you are experiencing vision loss or another major life-challenge, I encourage you to bring the mirror of truth up close to see the hidden potential buried within this new situation.

I can honestly say that losing my eyesight has been one of the best things that ever happened to me, and I help people say YES to Abundance, NO to Limitation!

My life experience of fading eyesight has meant I have developed other skills to continue living ‘A Lovable Life’ in spite of being blind. It is my knowledge and positive vision strategies I love to share with my readers and audiences to see how powerful we can be when we rewrite our personal ‘story’.

When you can see your challenge as the necessary detour you are being asked to make right now, you can jump straight to insight #1: acceptance is the key.

If you are curious to know more about how anyone can transform the seemingly impossible into the possible, I have designed
