About me

Imagine if you weren't so overwhelmed and had clarity on what you wanted in making the most impact in your personal or professional life?

If you are ready to get serious with your personal and professional life then I'm here to help and support you in finding the best strategy for you and to explore what may be holding you back and how to move forward.

About you

I support people who;

  • are facing changes in their lives.
  • want to reconnect with themselves to set clear goals with intention.
  • have a feeling that something is not quite right or missing and want to take control and create a life they've been dreaming of.
  • maybe successful in their careers but feel unfulfilled.
  • need clarity with their own personal development.

I want to help you feel less overwhelmed and confident in taking action in the next steps in your life. 

Coaching Approach

My coaching will help to bring more calm, more clarity and new perspectives allowing you to build confidence to create a fulfilling life where your relationships and what you do is aligned with how you feel and who you are inside. I can help you explore your fundamental values and strengths to build confidence so you can develop new habits and routines to bring about change.
Are you ready to;

  • Reconnect to who you are.
  • Build confidence and resilience.
  • Develop habits and routines to instigate change.
  • Understand yourself and others to influence effectively.
  • Work towards your full potential.
  • Live and work in flow.

I support LGBTQ+ inclusion, mental health and wellness, and those who have an intersectional experience. My core strengths are my intuition and empathy, I am skilled at holding space for you to explore. 
Living authentically is at the heart of my coaching empowering clients to lead with purpose, integrity, and compassion.

About me

I'm a coach and mentor with over 15 years in a professional engineering and management background. I'm a keen runner and stand-up paddler. I dabble in duathlons, tag rugby and softball and a former dragon boater. I used to brew before I realised how much space I didn't have in a London flat, a lapsed ukulele choir member, I love reading, listening to podcasts and always happy to talk about food. Usually found outdoors. I've been through bereavement, toxic relationships, faced prejudice and racism, being made redundant, burn out and cancer (thriver). All these experiences drive me to make the most of my one life. 


"Janis has a very patient serene demeanour that is immediately calming and makes you think that what seem like big problems can be overcome.  She is very good at dissecting down to the nub/source of problems and behaviours, gives simple, bite size exercises and practices that can be easily incorporated longterm into a busy working day, and has a logical, easy to follow approach.  With her diverse range of life and work experiences she has a broad perspective to tackle a range of issues.  I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to change direction in their life or career, or get clarity on obstacles in their life."

Caroline  - International Vet

"Janis has facilitated big shifts in my awareness in a very short space of time. Her space holding felt strong yet warm and inviting, and I felt safe to really let go and explore my thoughts, feelings and intuitions. Her ability to accurately reflect back - capturing the language, flow and energy of everything I was putting across - allowed me to flow freely and quickly in my thinking. She made it easy for me to get clear on my goals, acknowledge what was getting in my way and stay on track with the steps needed to make progress. I am proud of what I have achieved and I am so grateful to have had Janis on my side during this time. A great coach, and thoroughly recommended!"

Gabriella - Women's Embodiment Coach 

"Janis has been coaching me as I was going through some major life and business situations and I can say it was an empowering experience and it really helped me gain clarity and find a way through what was right for me. She not only helped me through the challenges I have faced over the last 6 months, she has also provided me with tools and insights that I can take forward with me into the future. I would not hesitate in recommending Janis to anyone who is faced with making difficult decisions and wanting to embark on changes within their life and business. I felt very supported throughout and she helped me get clarity on what I wanted and helped me get out of my own way when I threw blocks in my  own path."

Due to my own personal experiences I have worked in highly pressured, results-driven and intense and harsh environments but also faced personal cancer illness which came with trauma and affected my mental wellbeing, as well as positively changing my perspective towards life. 
Your own lived experiences and traumas do not have to hold you back if you've worked through these from a therapeutic side, I can help you go from this new baseline going forward.
