Amy Metson (MAC, ICF Dip.Coach)
Hi, i'm Amy. I work with passionate people like you, to empower change.
I specialise in personal development coaching, supporting ambitious professionals to build quality relationships at work and in their personal life. I help you to create courage, confidence, and connection so that you can lead a happier, more authentic, fulfilled life.
Coaching is a journey and one you must enter into willingly. I always begin a coaching relationship with a conversation first; choosing the right coach for you is important to get the most from your experience. Our exploratory chat will involve a little discussion around what's going on for you and what you would like to be different and also allow you to understand the way I work and decide if it’s the best direction for you.
Then, if you are interested and ready to invest your time, energy and finance in a coaching relationship with me I offer a variety of programmes that are based on my 'Empowering Change' methodology that takes you on a journey through 5 key areas of transformation:
Reflect - on who you are, where you are and how you would like it to be different
Reframe - your situation by exploring your patterns of thinking and behaviour
Responsibility - take back your power and create your reality
Relationships - understand your impact and build better relationships at home and in your career
Resilience - learn how to bounce back better than before
Whether you want to work on yourself, your relationships, or your career, I will provide a safe, confidential space for you to explore what is going on for you. My approach is friendly and relaxed and I will quickly put you at ease so you feel comfortable opening up to me. I will hold up a mirror to the conscious and unconscious things that are holding you back so that you can move forward much quicker than if you were to do it alone.
As a result of working with me you could:
- Build better relationships
- Understand how we are all different
- Deal with conflict and confrontation with ease
- Get clear about who you are and what you want
- Find your voice and speak your truth
- Build better boundaries
- Learn to say no
- Build confidence and self-esteem
- Build resilience
- Have a toolbox full of information, tools, techniques to help you in the future
- Reduce anxiety, overwhelm and stress
- Feel happier
- Identify what is holding you back
- Become more motivated
- Find direction and purpose
- Change your career
- Get promoted
- Set goals and take action to achieve them
- Be held accountable for the goals you set
- Move forward much quicker than if you were to do it alone
- Stop surviving and start thriving
Please do not hesitate to get in touch for an exploratory chat about how I can help you.

I'm a member of the Association for Coaching (MAC) and hold an International Coach Federation (ICF) approved and endorsed diploma in Transformational Coaching from the Animas Centre for Coaching, as well as further certificates in Emotional Intelligence Coaching and Group Coaching and facilitation. I am fully insured, DBS and ICO certified.

Prior to becoming a full time coach, I worked for many years in the corporate world in people and project management positions. I continue to support people in the business world, running coaching programmes and training within organisations. I believe this gives me a good understanding of the modern day workplace and the difficulties people face.
"Wow, what a journey! Coaching helped me to understand myself and work better with the people around me. The tools you gave me to address conflict enabled me to connect with my colleagues in a more professional manner.
I have learned not to take on everyone else's problems - I can still support them, but without climbing into their issues. I now take power in my own capabilities instead of comparing myself to others and I have been promoted!
Figuring out the changes I needed to make has freed up headspace to focus on what's important - my happiness. My self worth and confidence has grown and I can't express enough how the sessions really helped change my whole outlook on life."
“Working with Amy has been amazing. I instantly warmed to her from the first moment we met and also trusted her implicitly, which allowed me to be very open and honest. I walked away from each session feeling that the load was lightening and honestly feel better now than I have for years. This has had such a positive impact on every aspect of my life”
"You helped me think out loud on a lot of issues and I achieved some new insights and clarity I had never before had. I have gained insights into why I have previously behaved in certain ways, which is enabling me to power through things that have previously held me back. It has been really good to have somebody outside of the business to talk with and bounce ideas off”
“I very much enjoyed our sessions. Amy’s client approach is thoughtful and well-pitched with appropriate time for reflection and discussion provided. Amy’s application of the tools and methodologies I felt, was insightful and rightly driven by our conversations. I have become more self-aware in terms of who I am and what it is I value”
"The process of working with Amy has been great. Informality made it easier to approach sessions and allowed me to open up a bit as I would naturally be inclined to keep things to myself. I now have a different outlook, being more flexible rather than judging on early impressions”
