“A centipede was happy—quite! Until a toad in fun. Said, “Pray, which leg moves after which?” This raised her doubts to such a pitch, She fell exhausted in the ditch. Not knowing how to run. — Katherine Craster”
I am a life and career Coach with 20+years of business management and mentoring experience. Currently undertaking a Masters in Career Counselling/Coaching. I enjoy guiding people on their life journey to find clarity and the empowerment to take action. Helping them to achieve their goals and live the life they dream of.
I work with both adults and children in personal development, confidence, self-esteem and motivation. Helping those lost and in need of a guide, to find a suitable career path and/or finding balance in life. Perhaps even just an impartial voice to speak to.
I specialise in coaching; careers, creatives/performers, mindfulness, personal development and spirituality. More about the areas of coaching I deal with can be seen further down.
A member of; 'The British Psychology Society' (BPS) with a degree in Psychology, the 'Association of Coaching' and a student member of the Career Development Institute.
Qualified to Level 5 in Professional Coaching & Mentoring by the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) and hold an accredited Life Coaching and Meditation Diploma.
Working as a Talent Manager for over 10 years as the Managing Director of ‘Reflections Talent Agency’, and as a performer for over 20 years, I have a wealth of industry knowledge and work with creatives to help unlock their potential. I also have an Award in Education and Training and offer one-to-one acting/drama lessons. Which are great for building confidence in both adults and children.
Coaching sessions can take place online via Zoom/Phone or via a combination of these methods. Whatever works best for you, will be discussed at the initial FREE 30-minute consultation. Sessions are flexible and built around your availability. All sessions come with a weekly motivational check-in email, to keep that positive energy and GOAL progression flowing!
'Emily has really helped me harness some motivation during a time where it feels like we are completely helpless. I’ve made some positives steps towards my goals which Emily helped me set after we identified what is most important to me. I would definitely recommend Emily to anyone needing some guidance, who is feeling a little stuck and in need of some help with setting goals and achieving them.' — Gabbie Clark, Spiritual Coaching
'Emily helped me out tremendously. She's a superb listener, she totally understood my situation and gave me the support and clarity I needed. By looking at things in a different way I was able to get out of the loop I was in. Can definitely recommend!' — Oli Cohen, Life Coaching
'The call was fantastic - we had an initial chat to discuss what I would like to work on so that Emily could better understand what it was that I was looking to achieve from the session, and I was asked to complete a short questionnaire and make a list of my strengths and weaknesses so that the session could be tailored to me. During the call, we set some small tasks for me to complete which were very simple things that I could do to help me achieve my goals. I really enjoyed the session and I have already implemented many of the things we discussed. I would definitely recommend to anyone who may be considering coaching.' — Jessica Smith, Life Coaching
'I was so grateful for the really helpful coaching session I had with Emily. We talked about a range of issues, such as confidence and acting related concerns I had as a soon to be graduate. Emily was supportive and really helped me to understand how I could put in place positive strategies to achieve my goals. I'd definitely recommend her to anybody, and particularly actors.' — Han Roze, Performer Coaching
'Emily is easy to talk with and knows all the right questions to ask in order to get to the bottom of your problems! She helped me find a clear direction for a couple of projects I have and set goals in order for me to make progress. If I need any guidance or help in the future, I'll definitely contact her again! I highly recommend her as a life coach.' - Tina Barnes, Life Coaching

Areas of coaching I deal with
Other areas of coaching I deal with
Career Coaching: With career coaching, you will have someone who will, support, inspire and motivate you towards your goals. I can help you identify the right role for you and help you work towards achieving it. From the very first session, we will create a plan of action. So you can start pushing forward straight away, to more fulfilling work life. Sessions can also be spent working on resumes and cover letters.

Creatives Coaching: As the managing director of 'Reflections Talent Agency', working in the entertainment industry for over 25 years I have a wealth of knowledge and can help guide entertainers to unlock their full potential. One-to-one coaching gives guidance for entertainers who feel like they are treading water or in need of help and guidance with target areas of their life or work. Read more... https://www.reflectionslifecoaching.co.uk/performance-coaching
Mindfulness Coaching: The sessions will begin with us talking about any issues that you are currently dealing with or areas of concern. Any concerns will most likely keep arising when trying to meditate and by dealing with them, can help lead to an overall calmer mind. Sessions can also be spent working through calming breathing techniques. Read more... https://www.reflectionslifecoaching.co.uk/mindfulness
Life Coaching: Coaching is for anyone and everyone who are feeling unfulfilled, or in need of help and/or guidance to reach their full life potential. The key with any reason is that you must be willing and ready to take action and make the changes. If you are ready to put in the work and want to achieve your full potential then now is the perfect time for coaching. Read more... https://www.reflectionslifecoaching.co.uk/life-coaching
Spiritual Coaching: Some of my methodologies come from Buddhism, some spiritualism and some from my catholic upbringing. I believe that life as an ebb and flow, a push and a pull and it’s learning to trust and be in harmony with the world you live in. Learning that when things do not go our way and the world pushes back, to trust in that and choose another route forward. Read more... https://www.reflectionslifecoaching.co.uk/spiritual-coaching
Youth Coaching: As a parent, you want to always be there for your child and share all their experiences with them. However, sometimes young people can find it hard to discuss things with their parents and difficulties in communication can occur. Which understandably as a parent, leaves you feeling frustrated and worried. If you want your child to have some support, someone to talk to, and feel that you are perhaps not quite the right person for this, then a coach could be the way forward for you all.
Due to the Covid-19, all my single coaching sessions are now reduced to £40 per hour per single session. Apart from Career Coaching which is now £50 per hour.

WHAT IS LIFE COACHING?
Coaching is for anyone and everyone who are feeling unfulfilled, or in need of help and/or guidance to reach their full life potential.
The key with any reason is that you must be willing and ready to take action and make the changes. If you are ready to put in the work and want to achieve your full potential then now is the perfect time for coaching.
Maslow's hierarchy of needs states that to self actualize all humans have 5 fundamental needs that need to be achieved; physiological well-being, safety, love and belonging and esteem which leads to full self-actualization.
As a coach, I will not tell you what to do but I will work with you on this journey of self-discovery as a guide to find the answers you need for a more balanced and fulfilling life. The changes can even start from the very first session. Unlike counselling, coaching looks to the future and not the past.
Starting with an initial free consultation, I will learn more about you, your hopes and dreams and what areas you wish to work upon. Before the next session, I will ask you to complete an information sheet which will go even more in-depth. Your answers will help guide the first coaching session and go towards formulating a plan of action. We will be establishing some GOALS and creating steps we can take towards them each session.
In between sessions, I will also set tasks so that you are constantly working towards GOAL achievement, in and out of sessions.
