About me

Everyone gets stuck in life sometimes. Not knowing how to move forward can leave us feeling insecure, frustrated, dissatisfied, and anxious. Are you feeling stuck or are not sure how to move forward to reach your goals? Boost your self-esteem and thrive in life!

How coaching can help
There are many things that demand attention and it is easy to lose focus. Life coaching sessions help to get a clear picture of where we are now, where we want to be, and how to get there no matter what area or areas of life you want to focus on. As a life coach I look at the present and future and assist you to see present issues in another light, gain clarity, and change negative feelings into motivation and change challenges into opportunities.

What to expect
Together we will create clarity and explore realistic options and actions that are needed for positive changes. During coaching sessions clients have my full attention and I will listen, ask questions to gain clarity, explore options and resources available to you, motivate you to take action, keep you accountable, support you, and celebrate achievements with you. I help clients move from stuck to unstuck, from insecure to confident, and transform lack into abundance.

Coaching is about the present and future and it is an adventure for yourself to your full potential. Amongst the seriousness my action plans also incorporate fun. Life is meant to be lived!

About me
After challenging years I had a successful career in Customer Service and IT. In 2015 I was made redundant and decided it was the perfect time to change my life around. Since beginning study in 2016 I have gained qualifications as a yoga teacher, herbologist, horticulturist, and life coach. I am passionate about plants, yoga, self-care, and helping people thrive in life.

Theresa - Better Life Yoga

I worked with Ingrid for a number of life coaching sessions recently. I found her integrity, understanding and her ability to hold me accountable very helpful. I have many projects on the go (always!) and sometimes I know I have scattered thinking and Ingrid worked with me to refine the key areas I wanted to work on. I have already had results from the marketing actions I put in place after our conversations. Also (and perhaps more importantly) Ingrid also made sure I also relaxed and took time to celebrate and enjoy my life! I would highly recommend Ingrid to you if you are looking for someone to shine a light to uncover your habits/beliefs, to help you make positive shifts in all areas of your life.

Ingrid's sessions led to deep reflections which helped me solve and resolve personal and interpersonal challenges and increase my sense of purpose in the world. Simply wonderful.

Ingrid's life coaching was wonderful! She helped me gain clarity on where I was at and where I wanted to go, including digging out some things that I hadn't realised were important to me. Throughout several sessions, she was patient, understanding and went the extra mile to help keep me accountable for the plan she was helping me set. I recommend her!
