All about me
I'm a mother to three grown daughters and two grandchildren. I have extensive experience of counselling and life coaching in my working life, especially over the last 30 years.
I help people to be the best that they can and love the life they're living,those that feel they are at a crossroads in their life and not sure which path to take.
I've worked with new start-up businesses, clients returning to work, and those who have aspirations for their relationship, health and well being, retirement and career.
What to expect
I have excellent listening skills, which help me to understand where you are, where you want to be and how best we can overcome any obstacles along the way.
Whether you know what is holding you back, or want to explore all options, it takes courage and willingness to ask for help. It's a huge step and to benefit fully from a life coach, you need to want to change.
You are in charge of your own life. Working with a life coach can help you to take the lead, understand your feelings, recognise issues, reach your goals and take the necessary steps to make changes.
It's all about you
All I ask is that you allow yourself to be heard, understood and supported in a non-judgemental way.
I offer a safe, supportive space where we can explore what really matters to you and establish your life goals. We will discuss any beliefs that you have, which might be holding you back and consider alternative perspectives.
We will recognise your strengths, and weaknesses, and define your core values to help you work towards your goals.
Even a small change can be enough to set you on a different path.
I like to work collaboratively to define your purpose, which can be very therapeutic. The task is recurrent and is part of a positive commitment, which will take you forward in the direction that you wish to go.
I can provide proven exercises to help you continue your progression between our sessions.
How can I help?
There are lots of life coaches in the area and it’s important that you chose one that suits you.
I offer new clients a free introductory taster session over the phone, which provides an opportunity to discuss your aims and life goals, what you'd like to achieve from our sessions and the support I can offer. There is no obligation to commit to further sessions.
If you decide to progress beyond the taster session, I offer a flexible approach which means we can agree the total number of sessions needed or we can take things one session at a time.
Once we have agreed on an approach to the sessions, I will ask you to sign a contract, which will outline the terms and ensure our conversations remain confidential.

I was expecting to be given all the answers to my problems, but Denise made me think about myself first and any obstacles that I hadn’t been aware were holding me back.
She helped me to focus on what mattered. Denise and I talked through everything, she is such a good listener, I felt so comfortable. She would ask thought provoking questions that enabled me to answer my own misgivings. I realised that I always had the answers, I just needed to ask myself the right questions.
My outlook became more positive and I came away with a completely different viewpoint on my life and the progress that I needed to take to reach my goal…one step at a time.
I began my coaching sessions with Denise after becoming disenchanted with my career and I began to let my work cross over into my home life. It affected me greatly, eating away at my time and enthusiasm for enjoying family life. Having a beautiful new daughter posed many new challenges and with the added pressure of spending more hours at work, I felt depressed and isolated.
After my initial meeting with Denise we established what I found challenging. Soon after, I became more proactive and solution focused, not fixating on a problem and letting them consume me. Denise helped me to think for myself and find solutions. I know that if I feel uncertain about any career choice in the future, I will communicate with her to allow myself the time and thought process before making a decision.
I have earn’t back some quality family time that I craved, and I have been able to refocus, which has helped with my physical and mental well-being. I owe a great debt of gratitude to Denise and her humble nature has assured me that it is all the work that I put in myself.
