About us

If you're looking for clarity and focus, or feeling "stuck" in a pattern of behaviours that are unhelpful to your work or business, we can work together.

Sometimes we feel like we're going round in circles and not achieving the progress we planned or deserve, it's then we look to gain a sense of direction.  I can help you find that, together with identifying barriers to progress.

If your beliefs and feelings about yourself, past experiences of work, school or college are holding you back, we can help.

Coaching enables you to rediscover yourself, the things you're good at, what really interests you and most importantly what gets you out of bed on a morning or puts a spring in your step.

Have trust you have all the answers. We will just give the time, space and challenge you need to get yourself clear about your next steps.

You'll regain:

  • Your self-esteem
  • Your confidence; and
  • Your motivation too.

Do you feel you've lost your identity?

Have you lost your confidence, focus or purpose?

Have you worked in the same place for years and feel stuck? Lost confidence? Low self-esteem?

We know exactly what that is like.

You're probably wondering how long you can continue - have bills to pay and a family to support, so need to work - stressed - anxious...

We work with people exactly like you. Trust us, just because it's not working for you now doesn't mean you won't get on the right path again. You can get back on track and our programmes are developed to help you make that happen for yourself.

Are you stuck in a rut and questioning your career path?

Are you still deciding what you want to be when you ‘grow up’?

You are not alone – most of the working population contemplate their direction too – but don’t do anything about it. We give you the opportunity to map out your alternative future and explore those ‘sliding door’ moments.

During our Career Change sessions we explore:

  • What motivates you?
  • Where's your passion?
  • Getting back on track
  • Climbing the ladder
  • Further education
  • Retraining opportunities
  • Self-employment
  • Surviving redundancy.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Life Coach's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Life Coach to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
