Amy Metson (MAC, ICF Dip.Coach)
Hi I'm Amy. I'm a qualified Transformational Coach specialising in personal development, career and confidence coaching. I help people like you to navigate challenges, get unstuck and be their best in their personal and professional lives. Together we will build a happier, lighter, more successful life that you'll love.
Just as an athlete would enlist a coach to train and support them in their sporting goals, I am there to support, encourage and guide you, using a toolbox of techniques and exercises (no burpees I promise) to help refresh your thinking and feel confident in the changes you want to make in your life and career.
Whether you want to work on yourself, your career or your relationships with others, 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:
- Develop or change your career
- Build confidence and resilience
- Understand yourself better
- Identify what is holding you back
- Find direction and purpose
- Become more motivated
- Build better relationships
- Reduce anxiety and stress
- Feel happier
- Set goals and take action to achieve them
- Be held accountable for the goals you set
- Move forward much quicker that if you were to do it alone
- Stop surviving and start thiving
- Improve your life, career or business

Training, qualifications & experience
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. I am fully insured, DBS and ICO certified.
I am certified to use the DISC Personal Assessment tool, which helps you to understand your personality to get ahead in your career, to communicate better in your relationships and to understand your personal patterns of behaviour.
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 within organisations. I believe this gives me a good understanding of the modern day workplace and the difficulties people face.
I am also a coach for the charity 'Yes Futures', which offers coaching in schools for kids aged 8-18 years to build confidence, resilience, communication skills and self awareness.
“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 in to 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”
"Coaching has really benefitted me, more than I originally thought. Our sessions helped open me up and increase my self awareness, which in turn has helped me to make more informed decisions"
"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”

Areas of coaching I deal with
I offer a free, no obligation introductory chat to give you a taste of what it is like to work with me and answer any questions you might have. Alternatively you can send me an email and we'll go from there.
All coaching sessions and packages are designed bespoke based on your requirements and priced accordingly.
Please do get in touch to discuss your requirements.
I offer 60 or 90 minute sessions and usually work with clients for a minimum of 3 sessions; however this very much depends on you.
Duration and frequency of sessions, as well as location is flexible. If you are local I offer face to face coaching in a local therapy practice. If you are further away I offer online coaching via Skype (or similar). Evening and weekend appointments available on request.
