I am an accredited NLP trained Life and Performance Coach, with a focus on supporting individuals to rediscover themselves, their skills, interests and motivations.
I trained as a Life and Performance Coach after almost twenty years working in the voluntary sector, supporting and empowering community groups and individuals across a range of ages from young to old, through training, capacity building and individual work.
As an experienced and fully qualified life coach, my passion is enabling people to discover their inner strength and resources, regain a stronger sense of ‘self’, and build the confidence to lead the life they want to live.
If you are feeling ‘stuck’, unable to see a way forward, uncertain about what you want, or how to achieve it, I will support you to:
- Identify and create choices for yourself
- Make positive changes in your life
- Achieve a greater sense of self-belief, purpose, direction and determination
- Feel more in control of your life
I can also support you to make the changes you need to in order to lead a more fulfilling life. This might mean finding the confidence and / or strength to make life changes, in either your personal or working life, or to plan an effective course of action to achieve a long-held dream.
If any of the above resonates with you, then please get in touch for a free 30 minute telephone consultation, to see whether coaching with me is the right thing for you.
We all have choices – the starting point is simply to do what you can, with what you have, where you are…
"Before meeting Ariela I felt stuck in several areas of my life: personal, health, work, to name a few - I needed to make changes but practically didn't know where to begin. We worked together looking at patterns and my personal beliefs and what I wanted to achieve and then set out actions to get to where I wanted to be. Ariela also showed me NLP techniques to support these changes and gently challenged me in such a supportive way. Things have completely changed for the better and I cannot recommend Ariela and life coaching sessions enough!"
"I contacted Ariela because I wanted to learn new ways of thinking that would help me in various areas of my life. She is very friendly and professional which made me comfortable from the very start so it felt easy to talk with her and embrace the challenges she gave me! Thanks to the various strategies we explored I have learnt to think positively by recognising what I achieve and leave aside the unhelpful negative thoughts. Each session of coaching has been extremely useful and Ariela, very supportive. I now feel so much more energised and I know how to stay with the positive! I am so grateful and I would definitely consider more sessions in the future. Thank you so much Ariela :) "
“Ariela was friendly, and approachable and made me feel valued. Her approach combined good listening skills and the right amount of talking with the odd flash of inspiration and insight, making the sessions feel dynamic and unique to me… this process was valuable and rewarding and has led to some very concrete and valuable changes being made to aspects of my life."
"Ariela was everything I wanted in a Life Coach. She is both professional and methodical in her approach to coaching and led me into each session at a pace I felt comfortable with. Ariela brought her characteristic enthusiasm and dynamism which gave me such a boost. I would recommend her as a Life Coach without reservation."
“As a recently retired person Ariela gave me invaluable support thinking and talking through my worries and ambitions. I was able to stop worrying and get on with living.”
“Ariela has a very friendly approach, making sure that I understood everything that was said and she was able to answer my questions. Ariela was very engaging and inspiring. The coaching gave me more confidence, some new approaches and ideas in terms of preparing for and presenting myself well in interviews. It paid off as I was recently promoted to a team manager and received excellent interview feedback.”

Areas of coaching I deal with
£340.00 for a package of 6 sessions.
This cost includes e-mail support in between sessions.
Sessions last between 60 - 70 minutes. Following the initial telephone consultation, we then discuss how many sessions we feel would be appropriate. You can choose whether you'd like to pay by the session, or for a package of 6 sessions. You will have the option to have your first session for £65 and, if you then decide you'd like to continue, you can book a further 5 sessions, with the first session counting towards the cost of the 6 session package.
I offer coaching sessions from my home in SE London. However, I am also happy to meet you elsewhere, as agreed and appropriate, if that is your preference (depending on distance, this may affect the cost). I can also coach by Skype, Viber or telephone. I am available for daytime, evening and weekend appointments.
