About me

I’m Jacqueline and I'm a Personal Development Coach helping young people and adults to build self confidence and develop coping skills to manage difficulties and changes in their lives. I have experience working in children’s services, housing organisations, charities and education, with people of all ages, to support them to gain confidence with transitions and to successfully navigate change. 

Who I work with

I work with young people (from age 11) and adults to develop confidence, self-esteem and coping skills. I will listen to you, support you to come up with strategies that will help you to work through your concerns about the changes or other challenges you are facing, and encourage you to take steps to manage these.

What can I help with?

I can help you to increase your self-confidence and coping skills to manage challenges you are facing or move into a new stage of your life and smoothly adjust to any changes. You have the ability to do well in a new environment or to make positive changes but you may be going through a tough time with other things happening in your life or it could be that your fears are getting in the way.

We all sometimes need support to tap into our strengths and encouragement as we take the first steps towards change. I offer life coaching to help you through challenges and to achieve your goals.

Mindfulness Life Coaching brings an additional element as you gain an understanding of your individual response to stressful situations and can develop greater self-awareness. This enables you to manage difficulties in ways that promote your wellbeing and the achievement of your goals.


“Coaching with you has been so useful, kicked me up the backside and helped me to stay on track. I am organised, calm and feel good about my move – thank you.” 

J.B, London

“I can’t thank you enough for helping me with some foundations to climb out of my longstanding issues. You have giant skills and wisdom. Thank you so much for your encouragement and your non-judgemental, calm and constructive support – and patience!”

D.M, Bristol

I have over 13 years’ experience working with children, young people and adults, where I provided support and encouragement for coping with difficulties, managing change and achieving life goals, initially training as a teacher before going on to work in children’s services and for housing organisations. I have had a longstanding personal interest in health and wellbeing and I later went on to train in fitness and health, following which I worked in several health promotion roles. The favourite part of my work is to help people to realise their strengths and make positive changes to improve their lives and wellbeing, so moving into coaching provides me with the opportunity to focus solely on this.
