About me

Coach and Resilience Practitioner

Are you stuck and not sure what to do next?  Is there a voice in your head wanting to move in a new direction but don't know where to begin? Started to make a change but have lost your way?  

I support my clients by providing an empowering framework so they can uncover their strengths, build resilience, and an inner confidence to move towards living a life of clarity, positivity and balance.  I do this through future and solution-focused coaching, transforming challenges into opportunities, looking at present issues from a different perspective and developing acceptance of and compassion for oneself and others.  

Where do you find the resilience and confidence to make the next step? Whether it is

  • past experiences holding you back
  • ways to overcome those negative voices in your head
  • dealing with anxiety and building confidence
  • doubting yourself and your capabilities 
  • a setback in a work or personal situation
  • career transition
  • need coping strategies and skills for your emotional wellbeing
  • help to clearly identify and define what you want from change

If any of the above resonates with you, I can provide you with a deeper understanding of what you want, create clarity to where you want to go and build your motivation and confidence to begin to move forward.  I offer a quiet space to think out loud, explore your options and plan what you want to do next.  

I work with clients in both personal and professional settings, helping each of them to discover their own unique way forward and I’d love to do the same for you. 

"The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change".  Carl Rogers - On Becoming A Person

W S Chan - Organisational  Psychologist

My coaching experience with Harriet has been simply extraordinary. I have had six sessions with her so far, during which we addressed some of the most challenging career changes I had.

I had never imagined that someone could challenge my views in such a supportive and empowering way, but Harriet managed to do so with an incredible level of genuine care and acceptance. She illuminated my blind spots, challenged my negative thoughts, and inspired me to adopt different perspectives. As a result, numerous doors and opportunities opened up in my life. Throughout our coaching journey, Harriet not only helped me to gain clarity and restore self confidence, but also guided me to generate clear and tangible plans that fostered progress in my life.

I am truly grateful for all the insights and support Harriet has provided during this tough period of time. If you are feeling a bit stuck at the moment, I wholeheartedly recommend Harriet to you.

Samantha Brennan - Creating relaxing, manageable workspaces for busy people.

Harriet has been invaluable to me as I have developed emotionally and professionally. I’ve experienced significant change on both landscapes and without Harriet I truly believe I would be spinning around in circles. Through Harriet’s nurturing coaching sessions I have found my own way through and made sense of what was blindsiding me. I would highly recommend to anyone who just needs to work out some kinks or require a full life MOT.
