Why Hire Me As Your Coach?
I've worked with people all my working life and spent over 25 years in a variety of management positions in industry. Working with my own life coach I recognised my passion for enabling people to be the best version of themselves that they could be and trained as a professional life coach. I now work with people who want to make significant and lasting changes in their lives.
If you really think "there must be more to life than this", then the good news is, yes there is!
I'm living proof that life coaching works as I changed my own career with the support of a coach. If you're reading this then you've already crossed the first hurdle to changing your life, so why not give me a call and see if we can work together to make a real difference in your life.
What Is Life Coaching and Who Is It For?
It’s easy with the fast pace of life in the 21st century to lose sight of who you are, what’s important to you and what you really want in your life. Take a moment to ask yourself the following questions:
- Have you ever felt like you are just going through the motions in your life?
- Do you want to improve your work/life balance?
- Have you reached a crossroads and don't know which way to turn?
- Do you feel stuck in a job or a relationship, feeling you want or deserve more and don’t know how to get it?
- Do you want to make changes to your health and fitness, improve your social life, or return to work after a career break?
- Do you have problems managing your finances?
- Do you never wake up and feel excited about the day ahead?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then Life Coaching might be for you.
How Does It Work?
I see clients for either 30 or 60 minute sessions and these can be face to face in Teesside in North East England or via Skype or telephone. During the sessions we will work together to enable you to establish exactly what you want in your life. I can’t change your life for you, but using strategies and techniques I will work with you and, if necessary, help you to overcome obstacles that may have previously prevented you from getting what you want.
Isn't It Just Like Counselling?
There are similarities to counselling in that life coaching is a one to one supportive, non-judgemental process. However, while counselling looks into your past and tries to make sense of what has happened in your life, life coaching is very much focused on the future and setting goals to enable you to move forward in your life.

"Working with Heather was life changing for me. Having struggled with some deep, emotional issues for years, Heather was able to help me unlock the root cause and identify where my issues were coming from. Within a matter of weeks I had a real light bulb moment and can honestly say I feel like a different person. I wish I’d found her sooner! I cannot recommend Heather highly enough." C.W., Teesside
"I arranged to see Heather after losing my job and my confidence. I felt lost and I distinctly remember asking Heather to 'clear the fog' for me. I am delighted to say she did just that. Through a series of very warm and friendly discussions, some practical exercises and theoretical insight I came away with a renewed sense of confidence, a deeper understanding of myself, my drivers and my values and a shift in mindset that will help me face a future that is still uncertain with positivity and energy. Heather was very easy to talk to and challenged my thinking in a very constructive and supportive way. Not only has she helped me through a difficult time, she has helped me to create new habits and beliefs which will stay with me forever. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Heather as a life coach; professional, approachable and brilliant!" M.H., Yarm
"My time spent with Heather has been invaluable as she has guided me to identify my goals, reevaluate my values and worked with me with a non judgemental approach. Heather has kept me motivated and shared her knowledge on strategies to find solutions that work for me. Heather is a warm welcoming person and also a true professional and very knowledgeable, I can't recommend Heather highly enough." A.S., Billingham
