About me

  • Are you feeling disconnected, drained, or disempowered within your life?
  • Are overwhelm and confusion a regular part of your experience?
  • Do you often find that your needs are bottom of the priority list, or perhaps not there at all?
  • Are you feeling lost or like you don't quite know where to start in making changes? 

​If the answer is YES, I understand and I'm here for you.

Get to know me…

As a coach I bring with me over a decade's worth of experience working in the world wellness and mental health. Over the years I have coached, mentored and advocated for people of all ages in statutory services, voluntary organisations, educational institutions and private practice, seeing incredible results and transformations. I am a member of the Association for Coaching (MAC) and a senior member of Accredited Counsellors, Coaches, Psychotherapists and Hypnotherapists (SMACCPH).

What does coaching with me look like?

I facilitate a trauma informed, multimodality approach which uses a combination of conversation, journalling, energetic and body based practices to support gentle self-enquiry, compassion and empowerment. Together we’ll create a safe space where you can reconnect with yourself, explore, play with ideas and identities, examine your needs and wants and lean into the possibilities of from judgment and consequence.

Working with a life coach offers you dedicated time, space and support to help you move forward in life, whatever that means for you...and I’ll be right with you, every step of the way.

Some of the things I can help you with: 

  • Reconnecting to you and who you are now,
  • Gaining clarity around what you need and want in life,
  • Identifying how you might meet those needs practically day to day,
  • Releasing negative self-talk and cultivating a more compassionate, supportive inner dialogue,
  • Building self-trust and confidence,
  • Redefining self-care so that it feels accessible and genuinely nourishing,
  • Creating a toolbox of resources that you can rely on to truly support you through the ups and downs of daily life.

Additional information

I find that creating a bit of extra space within our first session to really understand where you’re at and what you’re hoping to gain from our time together, lays a super strong foundation for all that follows. So, our first session will always be 90 minutes long, costing £80.

Sessions are 1 hour in length after that and cost £60 each.

If you feel you’d like to work together on an ongoing basis, you can also block book 6 sessions for £300. 

Pay what you can…

Please note that I do offer a limited number of pay what you can spaces. It's important to me that the support I offer is available to anyone who needs it,  regardless of financial situation. There is no eligibility criteria and I will never ask you for proof of your financial situation.  Please don't hesitate to reach out if you'd like to explore this option.

Ways you can work with me… 

You can work with me from anywhere in the world via "Google Meet" or connect in person at therapy offices within Gloucestershire and the Cotswolds. 

When I work

  • I offer free 30 minute discovery calls.
  • I am also more than happy to facilitate evening or weekend sessions depending on what suits your needs best.

To book, please just drop me an email! 

Further information

Kind words from my clients: 

"Working with Amy has quite honestly been life changing. I questioned whether ‘working’ was the most appropriate descriptor, but yes, this stuff really can be hard work. It requires effort, it’s emotional, and exhausting at times, but it’s so liberating and freeing in ways I didn’t even think possible. Amy has a rare talent that words will struggle to describe. It’s like there’s a magic lens that looks straight into your soul, which empowers her to bury far beneath the rubbish we convince ourselves to be truth and get to the root of any issue; in essence, the root of you. She has guided and supported me through a journey of discovery and acceptance and helped shift a huge weight that I was carrying, unaware. I’ve never felt more aligned with my true self and heart." - Jenny - 

"Amy's contribution and perspective is invaluable, especially in a setting like mine where things can become very focused on taking action and making things happen. Prompting people to step back, reflect and give themselves permission to do things in a way that works for them is something Amy does so well!"
- Alice Benham -

"Honestly you've been such a huge help're a true healer"
