In a Nutshell...
Self confidence and self esteem are the foundations of your success and happiness. They determine:
- what you believe you are capable of
- how you interact with yourself and others
- how you see yourself in the world
I can help you gain the self confidence to make changes to your life so that you can find success, fulfilment and ultimately become the person you want to be. I provide effective, down to earth coaching, designed uniquely for you and your specific needs. I can help you turn your ideas into action, goals into success and your dreams into reality.
So often you want to make changes to your life - change career, look for a new relationship, go for that promotion, take those evening classes, lose that weight - but a lack of confidence in your abilities, worrying what others might think of you and listening to those nagging voices of self-doubt and self-criticism in your head, stops you taking those risks or going for those opportunities and experiences which may enrich your life. Sometimes making these changes by yourself can seem overwhelming, too challenging and you can't see a way forward to make it happen. Sometimes change can be uncomfortable and scary and it seems easier to stick with what you know, even if it doesn't make you feel good, rather than take that leap of faith and step out into the unknown.
Help is at hand...
That's where I come in. I can help you strengthen and develop your confidence from the inside out, challenge those nagging doubts and anxieties, and help you to learn to trust and believe in yourself. Working together, we will create a step by step plan, strategies and techniques so you can take that leap of faith and do the things you want to do, be the person you want to be and live the life that fulfils you.
I love what I do because I know just how powerful coaching can be. The support that I provide is based upon things I have experienced myself. The most rewarding thing about my job is seeing people's faces shine when everything starts to come together for them.
If you have the courage to begin, I will help you find the confidence to succeed.
More confidence, more choices, more life.
People I have helped say...
"Sceptical as I am, I was unsure how coaching would help my self-confidence. However, with Helen’s help, I have achieved so much in a short amount of time. I have done things I never thought possible. I have learnt to constantly challenge my ‘inner voice’."
"I started working with Helen for issues around fear and confidence. She really got to know my personality and helped me explore the traits that get in the way of my goal. I have had some big realisations with Helen’s help which has been so useful to help me make progress."
"I wanted support in how I felt about my work, focusing on my anxiety and confidence levels. The coaching sessions have really helped me let go of some self-doubts, accept the decisions I make and to have confidence in my gut instincts

How did I end up as a life coach?
Put simply, I find people so interesting. Everybody has a unique story and experiences and I find it fascinating to listen to them and discover all about them. My time spent working in different countries enabled me to meet people from widely different backgrounds with different challenges but I still realised I could connect with them all and make a difference; often just by giving them the time to listen to what was important in their lives. My background in training and education has made me realise that I love making a difference, helping the people I work with or my classes believe in themselves and fulfil their potential. Forging relationships with my students was the thing that excited me rather than teaching grammar, particularly the subjunctive case! I juggled my teaching job, my relationship, being a mum and doing my life coaching training and accreditation. It took me a while to take the plunge and set up a business as the uncertainty and anxiety experienced in making such a change was at times overwhelming. For me, the coaching I received as part of my training was the trump card that helped me get perspective, take control and challenge those fears head on. All of these experiences have given me a great foundation for the work I do now.
