Shropshire Star Newspaper November 2012 Reported about Andrea Robinson Life Coach;
A former senior Shropshire nurse has retrained as a life coach to help people across the county choose the right path in their everyday lives. She uses her past experience and qualifications to help the clients of her own life coaching business in Shrewsbury. She works with numerous people across the county and nationally and internationally via Skype.
Andrea said:"With a lot of clients they are unaware of what is holding them back or what is making them unhappy and time with a lifecoach can help them to realise the steps they could be taking."
Tessa Say,a professional translator working in Italy said "Andrea provides guidance that is expert, professional and, above all, caring. She goes beyond the boundaries of the sessions to seek information that may be helpful and her sensitivity to needs means the challenges she sets are realistic yet hightly fruitful"
Andrea also writes for the Nursing Times.Her recent article on 20th November 2012 "Creating a Career Vision" helped nurses reflect and take action on their career. On the 8th February 2013 Andrea wrote another article for the Nursing Times "Baby steps lead to growth and development" which helps nurses make their professional dreams into reality by taking small steps that match their developing confidence levels.
Andrea also appeared on BBC Radio Shropshire on the Vicky Archer Show to talk about keeping New Year Resolutions on New Years Eve 2013.
Andrea also contributed to BBC Radio Shropshire Breakfast Show with Nigel Dolman Broadcast Journalist in April 2014.The feature was addressing recent research about the best interview techniques. Nigel interviewed some unemployed people and she offered some further interview techniques to people looking for work in the hope of increasing their chances of getting the job they want.
Andrea has been interviewed again by BBC Radio Shropshire in October 2015 on their Breakfast Show about the Benefits of Smiling .

In a few short weeks my life has gone from being in a very dark unmanageable place to being one where the future looks so much happier, manageable and exciting. Her extensive nursing background in mental health, huge knowledge in various therapies and a mountain of tools armed ready to help - makes every session individually tailored, valuable and worthwhile.
I highly recommend Andrea as a genuine, compassionate, honest and knowledgeable life coach. Our sessions have now come to an end but I will definitely be back in the future when life throws new challenges.

RB 2019
"I discovered Andrea at a point in my life where I was very confused, Lost I suppose you would really call it. Lost and unclear about what steps to take next in life. I felt I had no real control over my life and was drowned out by the inability to take any steps towards any path.
"Andrea encouraged me to take steps towards areas that I never thought I would go towards, she challenged me to do things I was very unsure about doing. These challenges enabled me to break down self imposed barriers, ideas and to take action.
I'm very grateful to have met Andrea, the confidence I have achieved and the actions I have taken through the sessions with Andrea enabled me to meet people and look at aspects of myself I discarded.
All the people I have met through Andrea's challenges, have led me onto a path which I was reticent to go towards but in the long run seems to have been the best option all along. Andrea gives you the confidence to take action, to feel challenged because the only person you have to let yourself down is yourself, no one else.
It's only the beginning of the next steps but they seem the natural ones." AB 2020
