About me

Hi, I’m Elaine and thank you for visiting my page.

If you're looking for a cheerleader, you're in the right place. I'm here to help you, help yourself live the life you want.

As a trained Life Coach, NLP and DISC Practitioner I’m fascinated by people. I'd love to understand what makes you tick, what you want and help you take the steps to achieve it.

Many people fall off the wagon of good intentions because of unhelpful habits, something knocks us off course so we tell ourselves it wasn't meant to be or we aren't good enough. Goals can also become distant dreams because the goal is just too big!

It doesn't have to be this way...together we'll unpick what's not working, replace negative self chatter and take the steps you need to take to make the changes you want. By breaking down the goal, the path forward becomes clearer.

Whatever you are looking for there is a solution (yes really) and coaching will help you access all the answers you already have, they may just be buried deep inside you.

You might be

  • Stuck in a rut, thinking "is this it?"
  • At a crossroads in your career
  • Feeling at a low ebb
  • Stressed or looking for a way forward in the world of Covid-19
  • Lacking in confidence, motivation, or energy
  • Trying to reach a goal, but you simply don't know where or how to start
  • Living with chronic illness or caring for someone with chronic illness and struggling to manage the dynamic

How can I help?

My goal is to help you, help yourself lead the best and happiest life you can. This involves change. To help you make those changes I use a blend of coaching and NLP techniques; I will help you to get over the can'ts and get on with the cans using a variety of tools and techniques. This takes time and hard work! Rest assured there is plenty of sensitivity (and laughter) along the way.

Happy Clients

"I'd never tried coaching before but Elaine was just what I was hoping for from the off" Vikki - Cumbria

"Elaine is so friendly and easy to talk to. I got in touch after a difficult time in my life, I felt I had lost myself. Elaine listened and asked questions to help me understand why I feel a certain way around things and why I react the way I do and more importantly ways to embrace it and feel more comfortable. I find myself approaching meetings or social situations equipped with tools Elaine has taught me and I feel like I’m flourishing and more empowered than ever before. Thank you!" J.G. - Chartered Accountant

"I’ve looked forward to each of the 6 sessions with Elaine!  Her positivity and enthusiasm are infectious – these, along with learning more about my character, have helped me to re-focus on my desire to completely change career to find that which is more fulfilling.  Elaine has equipped me with skills for the journey ahead!" Jessica - Analyst

"I wasn’t sure what to expect when I first started working with Elaine, but it has been a wonderful experience.  Her positive attitude and guidance were just what I needed and she has helped me to regain my confidence and start out on a new career path.  Thank you so much Elaine for all your help and support." G.C. -Interior Designer

Elaine is an excellent listener, and has a knack of asking the right questions, which makes for rich and thought provoking conversations. Change is hard work! Thank you for helping me on my journey." CH - Assistant Head of Projects NHS

"I would highly recommend Elaine. She is dedicated, polite and extremely caring." Mrs P - Financial Services Business Owner

"Elaine was very easy to work with and understood me very quickly!  She helped me to gain effective and practical strategies that I could use in a variety of situations.  These, along with our coaching sessions, enabled me to understand myself better and reignited my belief in myself as a leader.  As a result, I now feel more confident and capable at not just surviving the challenges and pressures of the day, but stronger and better equipped to lead myself and others more effectively.  I would highly recommend Elaine to anyone who is considering spending some quality time on themselves, finding their direction and a positive way forward." CM, Vice Principal - Education

"My work life can be all-consuming and I found after having my children I wanted to make sure I had a work-life balance. Coaching with Elaine has given me the time to evaluate my priorities also how I can adapt my reaction and outlook to stressful situations within my life. I have found the experience empowering and it has given me insight into my strengths – I did not even realise I had." Teacher - Berkshire

"Elaine has been a fantastic coach working with me on work-related empowerment and work/life balance in general. She challenged my thinking in a positive way and given me confidence to look for solutions and approach obstacles in a constructive way. She also helped me identify and appreciate all the things that were going well. I would highly recommend Elaine as a coach." Claire Decort, Berkshire

"Elaine, thank you for the course. It was life-changing." Lisa Clark - University Lecturer, Reading
