Helen Unwin - Life and Business Coach
Hello! I'm Helen. I am a qualified transformational Life & Small Business Coach specialising in confidence, career and leadership coaching.
Many clients come to me in a state of overwhelm, their confidence knocked and in a state of fear that any moment a ball is about to drop and bring everything else crashing down with it. They have too much going on in their head to think about anything, not least their future.
So, first it's my job to make you feel comfortable, safe and able to open up so the magic can happen. Whether that's with a smile, a bit of inappropriate humour or a look to say "I get you." The first part of work is to get a handle on the minutae of every day, through time analysis, realistic time management and prioritisation - allowing you to raise your head over the parapet again.
I use Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Cognitive Behavioural Coaching (CBC) tools and techniques to help better understand your view of the world, and how it impacts your life - both at home & work. Whether that's to boost your confidence, fire up motivation or overall personal development. I also offer leadership, career coaching and business mentoring and I facilitate small group workshops for individuals and small businesses.
In our sessions, my role is to take you from where you are, to where you'd like to be. I'll be challenging, and often poke or prod to get you & the elephant well and truly into the room!
I can offer face to face sessions in and around Staines or Cardiff, but if you don't live near me, I use Zoom video as a time-saving alternative.
If you need a life coach and you're ready to dig deep and make the changes you want to see in your life, business or career, book your free taster session: https://helenunwincoaching.as.me/ or use the contact details to find out more.

Feedback from my clients:
"I've just finished my Extended Coaching package with Helen. Our objectives were to allow me to do two things: focus on business priorities and to get my personal productivity goals in check. As a direct result, I managed to steer the business through a particularly tricky time and maintain a level of sanity that I can honestly say that I would not have managed to do without the help and support of Helen. Helen's techniques span a range of different disciplines which allows her to be a challenging and supportive mentor as well as a coach. You just have to outline your requirements and Helen can adapt to what you need. If you have a mountain to climb then get in touch. You'll be surprised what you are capable of achieving with the right guide."
Steph, CEO, Magic Milestones
"I visited Helen last year when I needed some guidance and helpful techniques with managing my work/life balance and she worked her magic in only 3 sessions! She's amazing! Being able to discuss and brainstorm ideas and priorities with her has made such an impact on my day to day life, I no longer have that regular feeling of being overwhelmed. Almost a year on and I still use the advice on a daily basis. Thank you Helen!"
Sally B, Kingston
"Helen was amazingly helpful in getting me back on track and re-organised after a tricky year when I was struggling to stay focused. We worked together to identify blockers, issues, and areas for improvement. At every stage, Helen had a suite of tools and techniques to hand for tackling challenges in a systematic and consistent way. By shifting my focus onto end-goals and outcomes, and guiding me through triaging issues and possible solutions, she chunked up seemingly intractable tasks into easily manageable and digestible parts."
Adam L, Richmond
"Helen has been an invaluable support to me twice now. Once last year, when I started a new job and needed to ensure I performed at my best and again this year to gain some clarity. Sessions with Helen really help clear my mind and allow me to reach my goals. Her style puts me at ease straight away and she keeps our sessions on track and focussed. Without doubt I’d book Helen next time I need a coach and I’d recommend her to anyone."
Helen K, London
