About me

I help clients through very stressful situations or life changes. I work with people suffering from prolonged work stress or burnout, and support others coming to the end of a part of their lives or starting afresh with a new part of their lives. In general, I assist you in developing successful strategies to live a more fulfilling life with meaning and purpose. These strategies build confidence and resilience and help you worry and stress less.

If you're feeling worn out, fed-up, hurt, at a loss or stuck, and you're ready for a change, then my services are for you.

I draw on my own experiences of stress and burnout, depression, redundancy and loss to support you from a place of understanding. People need people, so don't suffer alone. Your coach will walk side by side with you through your coaching journey. All sessions are completely confidential and you will not be judged. My approach is to create a nurturing space where you can be yourself and really be listened to. I have your best interest at heart and focus on your experience of life.

I use a combination of coaching and NLP to help you gain new perspectives, remove obstacles that hold you back, and take useful and purposeful actions.

I have created a guideline of programmes, but each programme will be adjusted to your individual needs as assessed during our first session. A good relationship between you and your coach is essential for successful coaching. We both have to feel comfortable with each other in order to build trust. That is why I have a free half hour phone consultation as part of my practice. This is a great opportunity for you to see if we get along and ask any questions you may have about coaching and NLP. It is also an opportunity for me to get to know you a little bit and help you explore your current position. The consultation is not a sales pitch, and there are no obligations following our call.

"I think it's important to state that my first impression of Heidi was that she was very professional, had a gentle and calm nature and inspired real confidence. I was looking forward to working with her and I wasn't disappointed."

"I found my life coaching sessions to be very insightful. They have given me the tools to work out any problems in a constructive and productive way."

"I found the NLP session fascinating. Walking through a problem, breaking it down and then walking back I could not believe how much my outlook had changed for the better in such a short time."

"After only one session I was seeing a difference, after six my mind was more balanced as I could see the goal, barrier and action. A truly beneficial six sessions."

"The NLP session helped in having a more focus based mind into my hobbies, helped me to calm quickly and effectively to craft after a hectic day with my young family."

"The one area I've always struggled with is knowing exactly what I'd like to do. Heidi's gentle coaching was thought provoking and challenged my perceptions about how far I can go."

"The first obstacle was to revamp my CV emphasising my work experience and transferable skill set. It meant 'stepping up a gear' and untying myself from the previously 'tried and tested' or more conventional approach. I was thrilled with the end result and astonished at how quickly and effortlessly I was able to finish it."

"I always looked forward to our sessions and cannot thank Heidi enough for her time and expertise. It has most definitely been a worthwhile experience and has challenged my beliefs and expectations in a very healthy and positive way. I remain highly motivated and determined to reach my goal."
