Coaching acts as a bridge between where we are now and where we want to be
Why Choose Coaching?
If change was easy, we would already be the best versions of ourselves and feel we were reaching our full potential. Frequently, the gap between where we are now and what we want to achieve can feel uncomfortable and uncertain. The process of change and growth requires us to embrace something new and unfamiliar. The human brain is wired to perceive ‘unknowns’ as potentially threatening, so that we proceed with caution.
For this reason, most of us resist changes in life, especially when we are:
- unclear about our next steps
- are overwhelmed
- or change has been thrust upon us (rather than being instigated by ourselves)
Whether we are focusing on personal or professional issues, Integrative Coaching looks more deeply into areas of stuckness, identifying and shifting limiting emotions, beliefs and behaviours we may find ourselves repeating, despite them not being useful to us.
As an integrative coach, I use a wide range of approaches, tools and techniques based on neuroscience, which are designed to shift mindsets, enabling clients to practise new behaviours that benefit them and create lasting changes from the inside out.
I provide a non-judgmental, insightful and creative environment to help you bridge any gaps and find positive ways forward. I bring all my experience and resources, to guide you through a process of discovering your own insights, answers and inner resourcefulness, helping you to become clear on your next steps and make informed decisions, based on your objectives and goals.
Together we may explore any limitations, or challenges and practise new approaches, actions and ways of being that feel empowering and engage your natural enthusiasm and motivation.
I believe success in life is not just about our achievements, but also our happiness and ability to enjoy the life we’ve created. So we may look at the balance of different needs in your life and whether your emotional needs are being sufficiently met. It's possible, for example, to develop one area of our life, that is at the detriment of others. Taking care of your internal world means you can be confident that coaching will benefit you now and in the future.

Training, qualifications & experience
I qualified as a Counsellor in 2000, working in GP practices, charities and the NHS. In 2004 I became Accredited by the BACP, by 2007 I went on to provide Solution- Focused Brief Therapy for employees, specialising as a Workplace Counsellor and providing OH assessments for EAP’s. (Employee Assistance Programmes)
Throughout this time my passion for growth and change set me on a path to discovering what approaches and modalities created the most effective and rapid change. I set up in private practice in 2011 and with time and experience I gradually integrated training and research from EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), NLP (Neuro Lingustic Programming), CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), Neuroscience, Mindfulness and advanced relaxation techniques into my work with clients. In 2018 I completed additional coaching training and currently provide coaching in the Torbay area and online, in addition to continuing a private counselling practice in the local area

I provide a free initial consultation for 30 minutes. This enables us to discuss what brings you to coaching and clarifies what you would like to achieve. Alternatively, if requested, I will email you a pre coaching questionnaire
Once we have agreed to work together I will email you a Coaching Agreement, the completed agreement needs to be emailed to me before our first session together
"I am so glad that I found Angela when I did, I felt comfortable with her really quickly and was soon able to talk at ease with her. Angela is very reassuring and has a very friendly nature. She made me realise that I was able to cope with the things in my life that I had for a long time been struggling with. She also helped me with the tools which made it possible for me to deal with my issues and move forward in a positive way in my life.I feel so much better about myself and my life now and will be eternally grateful to her for this."
" I first contacted Angela to try to understand how I could deal with the feelings of anxiety I was experiencing, in running what was becoming an increasingly hectic life style, juggling running a business and family. Our initial consultation came as a relief to me, as I felt the first step was by far the most difficult, but I needn't have worried as Angela not only put me at ease but clear objectives were agreed and set.
I found coaching sessions, coupled with relaxation a great help! After a number of sessions we reviewed the original targets and discovered, not only had they been met, but in most cases surpassed! Thank you Angela for your help."
Thank you for what you have done with client x - he is a different person. You are a magician! I will happily recommend you to anyone who requires it in the future. (Local Business)
