LIFE COACHING IS MY NEXT STEP?
WHERE IS THE BRIDGE BETWEEN WANTING CHANGE AND ACHIEVING IT?
As well as a qualified and experienced Life Coach, I am also a registered and accredited Counsellor, with many years of experience in certain specialist areas (*see Training and Experience). This allows me to draw on other areas of expertise, whilst maintaining the focus on Life Coaching and not Therapy. Many of my clients appreciate my ability to draw in, where appropriate, deeper aspects of their life picture, in order to help them shape the next part of their life. The transformative journey you will undertake with me will bring you a stronger sense of who you are, and what you need, as well as a deeper embracing of self acceptance. You will learn the language of hope and optimism as you realise that you can achieve change, and become more in control of your life, and you can truly understand that this is not as good as it gets, and you can feel happier. It is a collaborative endeavour, with you firmly in the driving seat.
Your experience of Life Coaching with me
My clients appreciate my engaging and powerful style, laced with challenge and warmth, wisdom and insight, and my absolute faith in their ability to deepen self awareness, make connections, and find the confidence to make lasting positive changes. Progress is monitored continuously through ongoing agreed actions and reflection on outcomes. I maintain an infectious adherence to the theme of hope, as you will appreciate as we move forward together.
I will support and challenge you in overcoming obstacles to positive change as you start to discard unwanted habits, let go of limiting beliefs, reduce anxiety and stress, find greater focus and clarity, and enjoy greater self confidence. All my work is underpinned by strict professional standards, and I offer an eclectic mix of therapeutic styles. I have trained in many areas, from Person Centred to Cognitive behavioural coaching, to Transactional Analysis, NLP, Stress management and Motivational interviewing, and I employ all these approaches thoughtfully and sensitively.
So Why Transformational Life Coaching, and why NOW?
Something is holding you back - ?
You're feeling overwhelmed - ?
You put off doing things - ?
Anxiety is ruling your life - ? Fear is lurking - ?
Your career is not yet one you love and that reflects who you are - ?
Your self confidence is running on low - ?
You are seeking a healthier balance In your life - ?
You want to get more from your life, your career, your relationships - ?
Any of these sound like you?
If the answer is Yes, you have come to the right place. Life coaching will allow you to access the understanding and strength you need in order to make the changes you want. There can be many reasons why we put off doing things - fear, anxiety, stress, overwhelm and lack of confidence are some. Skilled life coaching with me will provide a breakthrough to this, resulting in a healthier life balance, a more fulfilling career or business, a better relationship, a stronger financial situation, or simply a greater sense of purpose and direction. The key lies in increasing your self awareness, and allying this with your commitment to the process of change.
I live in west Cornwall, and work regularly here and in London, through face to face, Skype and telephone sessions.
I have always worked with people. My professional life began in teaching, and moved from there into counselling. Transformational life coaching became a natural next step. The importance of personal development is paramount for me, and I believe I present a positive personal example of the potential fruits of this enriching process. I lead a varied and happy life. Certain things in my life have been and still are very important to me, and I place great importance on regularly reflecting on and reviewing my own life balance. I have lots of interests, and my relationship with all these things brings me fulfilment and makes me feel whole.
Relationship Coaching (for Individuals or Couples)
Human relationships offer us potentially the most fulfilling part of our lives. They can also be the most challenging. The people we deal with in our day to day lives may be business colleagues, parents, lovers, colleagues, or our closest friends and relatives. Sometimes it is hard to know where to begin to work on improving our relationships, but coaching can help. Through discovering who we are in our relationships, and working on the beliefs and attitudes that influence how we behave within them, we learn how to be with others, rather than how to change them.
What can I expect from our sessions?
In Cornwall I see individuals and couples from my consulting room at home. There is good access for people with mobility difficulties, and ample parking outside.
I offer a free one hour consultation session. I find it most useful to meet, at least initially, face to face with my clients. Sometimes this may continue, but I understand that this is not always possible, and so I offer both Skype and telephone coaching.
I provide a safe space where you feel free to explore the limiting beliefs that are holding you back, or preventing you from being who and where you want to be.
I love offering Life Coaching and watching as my clients transform. It's magical.

Career and business coaching - Are you happy with your work/life balance?
Life coaching offers you the opportunity to explore and develop what it is that makes you feel passionate in your work or business, at the same time as drawing on the gifts that you already possess. Research shows that people who are most satisfied and motivated by their work are in careers which:
- Reflect their true nature and real passions
- Draw on their innate strengths, and employ their favourite skills
- Allow them to honour their deeply held values
If the work that you are currently engaged in does not offer you some or any of these, what is it that you can do in order to gain more satisfaction? How much of what is not enjoyable or fulfilling at work is because of the work itself, and how much of it relates to you and how you think and behave within the work environment?
Relationship coaching - Developing effective relationships
Human relationships offer us potentially the most fulfilling part of our lives. They can also be the most challenging. The people we deal with in our day to day lives may be our closest relatives, business colleagues, or friends and acquaintances.
Sometimes it is hard to know where to begin to work on improving our relationships, but Life Coaching can help. I will help guide you to examine some of the more complicated relationships in your life, gain an awareness of where your expectations sit in conjunction with reality, explore what belief structures and feelings you have within those relationships, and help you to decide where you want to go next. Through discovering who we are in our relationships, and working on the beliefs and attitudes that influence how we behave within them, we learn how to be with others, rather than how to change them.

"It is not an exaggeration to say that my work with Noëlle has been life-changing. She has enabled me to move forward from a very stuck place towards living wholeheartedly and beginning to achieve goals I had only dreamed about. The coaching process with Noëlle is dynamic and illuminating, and her sensitive and intelligent guidance has been invaluable. With her help I have become more resourceful, gained greater self knowledge and dealt with obstacles to happiness. I would not hesitate to recommend Noëlle as a Life Coach, and bless the day I started work with her."
PT - Cornwall
"How often do you find someone who’s only interested in supporting you and helping you find out how to get the best out of your life – and who does this brilliantly well? In Noëlle you’ve found this, and if she is your coach then you are extremely lucky – she is worth her weight in gold! Noëlle's coaching has resulted in me putting in place some real changes (in the way I think and act) which have massively improved my life and my outlook. She has helped me to really understand what makes me tick, what drives me and, most importantly, what has been holding me back. I have worked with Noëlle on the practicalities of changing careers and starting a business, and her powerful questioning skills have helped me to work out what I want to do. Noëlle has been invaluable in helping me to identify and release some really unhelpful things I used to tell myself (mainly about my abilities, how other people view me, my chance of success and how confident I am – or not!) and as a result I have felt so much more energised and optimistic. Noëlle really listens, and really helps to focus on where the issue is and helps you to work it through. After a coaching session I almost always feel like I’ve really done some work – and I feel optimistic and ready to get out there and do it."
NW - York
"Noëlle really helped me think through things and then take measures to get results. She offers clarity as well as being very sensitive and helpful. I am much more relaxed these days and doing better at work and outside work. It was a difficult process for me but Noëlle has made my life better with her patience and support. A great experience but also a necessary one to make things happen in my life. I can't thank her enough."
AL - London
"Noëlle helped me to discover how exciting life could be by allowing me to talk through my confusions and support me to take one simple step outside my comfort zone which has led to genuine happiness."
RB - Exeter
"I loved working with Noëlle. She is a great coach, willing to help you achieve the change you're looking for. She has a gentle and professional approach, and she will help you gain clarity in whatever area of your life that might be blurry. I've had a few light bulb moments myself while being coached by Noëlle and that clarification has helped me move forward more calmly and confidently. I wouldn't hesitate in being coached by her again in the future and would totally recommend her."
CM - Godalming, Surrey
"I was (and still am) on a soul searching journey when I started my Coaching sessions with Noëlle. My experience with her as a Coach has been enriching, impactful and truly unforgettable. She has a warm curiosity that naturally encourages you to open up and enable you to unlock your potential. I have started to listen more to my heart and let that shine through to achieve what I truly desire."
LM - Sunbury-on-Thames, Surrey
"I'm so grateful to Noelle for all the help and support she's given me. Her wisdom and insights have enabled me to see why I was going adrift and what I needed to do to get back on track. I am so relieved that, after a few sessions of coaching, I can now see new paths beginning to open up for me and am looking forward to new beginnings with hope and enthusiasm. With love and thanks."
