Mindset Coaching for early stage Start-Ups including Coaches. Therapists. Side Lines. Passion Projects. Hobbies and Creative Projects.
“Guiding individuals through the emotional journey of starting a business” Starting your own business or side-line is becoming increasingly popular and easier to do. It offers freedom, income, autonomy, and the ability to dedicate time to your passions. I coach individuals through the early stages of start-up from idea to implementation. Helping to define the nature and vision of the business, and how to take those first steps.
Setting up your own business can be daunting and overwhelming at times. You have lots of ideas, but you just can't seem to get started. What do you prioritise first? How should you structure your days to get the most done? One to one coaching, can really help you move forward with your ideas by giving you the time and space to get clear on your priorities, and how to start implementing your goals step by step.
Isolation is common in single start-ups and can trigger an avalanche of negative or self-limiting behaviours such as fear, procrastination, and self-doubt. By asking the right questions and using relevant, thought-provoking exercises, I can help you gain clarity and perspective on what's currently holding you back. Exercises that identify your core values and beliefs will help to build your confidence, overcome fear of failure, beat procrastination, and improve your motivation and enable you to move forward and create a successful business.
“Working alongside early stage start-ups, to focus attention, build confidence and shape behaviours, to make your passion a reality.”

"I’ve been working with Abbie for a couple of months now and I’m seeing a big change, not only in the amount of business I’m getting (I run a private counselling practice and an online training course), but also in my mental approach to it.
Having resisted putting my prices up for fear of putting people off, I’ve now increased my fee and I’m getting more of the clients I want to work with. Abbie challenges you - in the most constructive and kindest way! - to examine your assumptions and self-beliefs (eg around self-worth and confidence in the service you offer) and to rediscover the reasons why you went into business in the first place.
This has been really important for me, as I’ve been in practice a long time and it’s easy to lose sight of your goals and values when caught up in everyday admin etc. Abbie is encouraging and supportive and shares ideas from her own experience in business, without being directive or imposing her own point of view; this is really important when working with people in the therapy business where client autonomy is key. If, like me, you’re trying to reboot a therapy practice and feeling bogged down or stuck, I’d happily suggest giving Abbie a call" Libby Webber - Southsea Counselling
