About me

Create life-changing results that leave you in charge of your emotions and completely connected within yourself, confident, empowered, and knowing you can face life head on.

Holistic life coaching prioritises the interconnectedness of body, mind, and spirit and I aim to guide my clients towards a balanced and fulfilling life. I know that personal growth and well-being extend beyond skill acquisition or goal achievement. It also includes mental and physical health, emotional resilience, and ethical considerations.

Do you feel that your emotions are running the show, leaving you unfocused, stressed, or overwhelmed? Do you struggle to take control? We are wired to avoid pain, and feeling stuck or powerless is very painful.

It is time to shift that narrative. Imagine a life where you have power over emotions, feel confident, and experience joy every day.

Living a loving and purposeful life happens when we are able to respect and embrace all emotions with self-awareness and without judgement. Emotions are our guide and reflection, curiosity, and acceptance leads to personal growth.

I not only support clients in reaching goals but also empower them to cultivate a deeper understanding of themselves, their purpose, and impact on the world.

Holistic coaching nurtures a sense of responsibility and integrity in both the coach and the client. Ethical principles such as respect, honesty, and confidentiality form the foundation of our coaching relationship. This creates a safe and trustworthy environment for exploration and transformation.

Tailor to your wants and needs
Holistic life coaching is fully tailored to your wants and needs, from 1 month to 3 months, from 2 sessions to 6. If you would like to simply focus on holistic life coaching sessions that is great. However, because I have many tools in my toolbox add-ons are available for those interested. Would you like classical yoga to be a part of it, on or off the mat? It can!

Or do you want to talk about which plants are beneficial to your mental health and how you can grow suitable plants in your garden?

The one thing I do not offer are one-off sessions. One session is simply not enough to hold you accountable and to make sustainable life lasting transformation happen.

My focus is on you and the transformation you want. If you would love to find out more or work with me, please visit my website or book a free call to discuss options through

Life is meant to be lived, to be fun, and to be fulfilling.
Together, let's make it happen!

How coaching can help
There are many factors that demand attention and it is easy to lose focus of what we really want in life. Life coaching sessions help to create a clear picture of where we are now, where we want to be, and how we are going to reach that destination. When hiring a life coach they will keep you accountable and be your biggest cheerleader to create your goals.

As a life coach I focus on your present situation and the future. I assist you to look at present issues from another angle which helps you to gain clarity and confidence and change negative feelings into excitement and motivation.

What to expect
After connecting we will have a conversation to make sure we are a good fit for each other and discuss your wants, needs, and budget. We then arrange the session and any other add-ons if wanted.

During the sessions, together we will create clarity and explore realistic options for the first steps towards your goal, techniques, and actions that are needed to make a positive change. Your goal can be extraordinary and might feel like a dream BUT it is key to being realistic with the first steps. It is like climbing a ladder. You might not be able to see where it leads to exactly but you can take each step easily. 

During coaching sessions clients have my full attention and I ask questions, motivate you to take action, hold you accountable, support you, teach yogic techniques, and celebrate achievements with you.

I help clients to embrace their emotions and truly process them instead of suppresing them. Move from stuck to unstuck, from insecure to confident, and regain power over emotions and therefor over life.

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 to embrace all their emotions and to reconnect them with themselves to 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!
