About me

I love being a coach. I believe so strongly in the benefits that coaching can deliver that I, too, have my own personal life coach! My favourite part of being a coach is watching you, my clients, grow and blossom into the amazing beings you are supposed to be, letting go of the things that hold you back, reaching your full potential and creating your best possible life! It is a huge honour and privilege to be part of that process!

I have been coaching for over 10 years, alongside my main career but I have always wanted to coach people full time. A few years ago, after over 20 years as a successful pharmacist, I took a leap of faith to set up my own coaching business as I felt I needed to do something different, and wanted to give something back!

I am a level 2 Reiki Practitioner and qualified clinical hypnotherapist and so I am really pleased to be able to offer both reiki healing and hypnotherapy as part of my portfolio of services.

I am passionate and committed to the coaching philosophy, having lived and breathed the results first hand through my own personal coaching journey, and I am now living the life I dreamed of!

And I want YOU to have that too!

Life today is tough and sometimes, we need to be a little bit brave. Reaching out for help, support and guidance is one of the bravest and best gifts we can give ourselves and the people we love.

I will give you one to one time to focus on any aspect of your life you may want to change or improve – all the important things like your relationships, career, health, family life and friendships, social life or just general lifestyle stuff! You may want to achieve a better work/life balance, increase your confidence and self-esteem, cope with stress better, improve your personal relationships, get that promotion, or make a career change; you may simply want to make an important decision. The choice is entirely yours and you have the power to decide where you want to go.

Whatever the situation may be, I can help you!

I strongly believe that you inherently know the answers to every question or challenge you are experiencing, even if they may be hidden deep inside you or obscured from view.

We will work closely together to assess what areas of your personal or professional life needs the most attention in terms of change or improvement, breaking it down into manageable-size chunks that are achievable for you. We will work at a pace that you choose, although I may encourage you to move a little faster if I feel it will benefit you. I will offer you honest and open feedback and celebrate with you, those moments of inspiration, revelation and recognition when you realise what you are capable of achieving.

I bring an individualised and wholehearted approach to my coaching, and will guide you to reconnect with your head and heart in a way that allows you to fulfil your dreams and live a balanced, wholehearted and happy life.

There may be tears and laughter along the way but I promise, it will be so worth it!

Let me help you reignite the belief in yourself and support you to follow your dreams so you can achieve great things and become your most authentic self.

If this has piqued your interest and you would like to know more, email me or call me (07970 065155) for a chat.

Wellbeing services are provided within Sutton Coldfield in the privacy of a confidential, quiet and comfortable room at The Old Farmhouse (B76 1QQ).

Alternatively, sessions can be delivered in the privacy of your own home via Skype or telephone format.

Client testimonials:

It has taken me a while to write this review for Helena because I wasn’t quite sure where to start, how I could put into words what she’s done for me and mostly I was worried that what I would write wouldn’t do her justice – which I still know it won’t! Helena is a true gift, she has helped me from rock bottom with no direction in life to happy and direction in all areas. Helena has helped me deal with traumatic experiences, personal issues, career issues, living issues, partner issues and any other issues along the way! The biggest compliment I can give her is that I no longer need her! I came in at the bottom and came out on top. If you are looking for a warm hearted, friendly, understanding, trustworthy and non judgemental lady to help you with life’s problems or just sort your life out in general, then look no further! Whatever the problem is or guidance needed, this lady will be able to help you and in the best way possible. Thank you again for everything Helena, you’ll never know just how grateful I am.

Coaching Client March 2020

Helena is a natural coach who has an amazing ability to make me feel at ease immediately. Her caring and non-judgemental attitude made the coaching sessions feel warm and friendly throughout. Often offering me perspectives that I had not even considered before, I found my time with Helena to be really beneficial. No hesitation in recommending her to anyone.
