About me

I am an established and experienced personal coach working with individuals, couples and families (in person) in the Telford and Shrewsbury area, clients further afield can access my support using Skype.

I worked for many years as a qualified mental health practitioner; working with individuals, their partners and in some cases their families all with differing circumstances, problems and issues requiring a unique and personalised approach.  Often supporting them through difficult times, whilst most importantly, enabling them to gain control of their lives and aspirations.

My experience in practice informed me well and equipped me with knowledge about people, how they behave, how they react and above all how they can improve and expand belief in themselves and their capabilities

This is what Clients said my support does for them:

  • It motivates them to take responsibility for where they are at currently
  • Allows them the time and space to move forward
  • Gently challenges their mindset and barriers to being able to make changes
  • Helps them to communicate more assertively
  • Helps them to gain confidence in their abilities
  • Gives them bespoke tools to help them to reach any goals and realise aspirations.
  • Supports them to develop life plans and practical strategies that can help them for the rest of their lives

Relationship Issues & Communication

I support individuals or couples who are experiencing difficulties in their relationships; this also extends to relationships in the workplace and other areas of life, such as family members.

I can be extremely supportive in allowing individuals or couples to reflect on their thoughts, interactions, communication and passive or aggressive behaviours.

I specialise in enabling individuals and couples to learn new strategies that will support them in being more assertive, self-aware and self-assured leading to a transformation of confidence and control. Practical ‘easy to use’ materials are used to support this process, giving your skills for life!

Sessions include:

  • Learn to be more assertive in your relationships
  • Learn how to negotiate more assertively
  • Learn how to compromise without necessarily ‘giving in’
  • Learn new interpersonal skills and build on the one’s you already have
  • Change your old passive habits
  • Learn how to intercept when you are being manipulated

“I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for the help that you have given me recently.  During our sessions, you have helped me to look at certain challenges in my life with a new perspective!! I have enjoyed our time working through things together, and have come away with lots of strategies and ways in which to move my life forward. (2018)

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.
