Geraldine Barnard. Helping you to rebuild your life following personal loss
Have you recently experienced a significant personal loss? Has this left you feeling isolated and alone? Are you struggling to find direction? Or maybe, on the surface, life is good but you don’t feel as happy as you would like to.
If so, I can help you. My name is Geraldine and I am an experienced Life Coach and Certified Grief Recovery Specialist®. I am caring and compassionate and love the work I do. I especially enjoy the moment when I see a client shift from being stuck to starting to find their new direction.
How coaching with me can help you
Quite often, when a client first comes to me they are heartbroken. Their world has been turned upside down as a result of some kind of personal loss. This can be bereavement, relationship breakdown, redundancy, loss of a pet or one of the over 40 losses that can happen to us over a lifetime. Mostly these are recent but often losses that happened long ago continue to impact on a person’s life affecting their ability to find peace and contentment.
By working with me clients discover the effect of both current and hidden grief and are taught a set of actions that, when taken in the right order, help them move beyond the pain of their loss. Once this has been achieved, their energies are freed up to design a life they love. This is the fun part and as an experienced life coach I support clients to discover what makes their heart sing and take the steps required to rebuild their life.

What have people said about my coaching?
"After enduring a difficult start in life and losing my father at an early age, I found myself lost and I needed some support. I was firstly prescribed antidepressants from my doctor and started having counselling sessions which was not the right choice for me. I then researched for many hours to find a solution to my problems before I came across life-coaching. This seemed to be the path that I needed to take. I was struggling to find the right life coach for myself until I came across 'Be More Life Coaching'. I had a long phone conversation with Geraldine before having my first session and I instantly realised that I had made the right decision. Since then, I have had many helpful sessions which were important to me and I have been able to work these around my busy schedule. I am still working on myself to this day and with Geraldine's help at Be More Life Coaching, I can see a bright future ahead.”
"Having struggled for a number of years to ‘move on’ following divorce, the Grief Recovery Programme method helped me understand the root cause of my sense of loss and provided me with the tools to find resolution and ‘move on’. The programme has been incredibly impactful and it is so relevant and easily applied to different types of loss. Thank you for the brilliantly sensitive and supportive way that you delivered the Grief Recovery Programme.
As a life coach your guidance has been invaluable in helping me understand myself and make better decisions which have achieved much better outcomes – thank you!"
"Cannot thank Geraldine enough for helping me to find myself again. I emerged from our sessions knowing myself better and being empowered to live the life I wanted to live. I only wish that I started working with her sooner!"
"I am grateful to Geraldine for investing her time and knowledge in me, the results will last my life time."
