About me

Hello, I'm Jayne and I really appreciate you considering me as your coach and taking the time to read more about me and the work that I'm passionate about.

I'm a lover of life, nature, animals and passionately believe that we all deserve to be given a voice, to be heard and treated with respect.

"We deserve to grow and be our best selves, no matter how challenging life has been." 

More about me...

For over 2 decades I provided eating disorder therapy to those in need, who couldn't find the support and compassion they needed to recover. This was a very personal mission for me, as I had recovered from anorexia in the late 80's and wanted to make a difference to those suffering from this complex and often misunderstood illness.

In 2004 I opened the doors of my coaching practice,  primarily working with women who found themselves at a crossroads in life, often stuck and asking the age old question 'what is my life really about?' During another practice 'growth spurt' and stress and trauma training in 2013 I was diagnosed with complex PTSD from childhood and in this pivotal moment I realised how so many of us have huge potential, inner resilience and capability, when given the space to be heard and to safely grow from challenging life experiences and stories. 

In 2016 I co-founded Fusion Spaces, a technical and wellbeing innovation company with my husband of over 30 years, Michael and in 2019 I was amongst the first UK practitioners to qualify to deliver the innovative and truly wonderful Safe and Sound Protocol. 

People are at the very heart of my coaching practice and our sessions focus on you.

Perhaps you face anxiety at levels that interfere with you life, or you feel stuck in a rut, with a battery farmed existence and feel ready to commit to changes of pace and direction.

Whatever your needs are, I walk with you as your coach and trusted companion to help you reconnect to what matters, your life, health, resilience and to help you grow.

"It's all about you!"

So, I have walked a difficult life path, just like many of you reading my profile and I understand how life can knock you off track.

Losing your sense of self and your direction is understandable but it doesn't have to be this way. 

Over the past 2 years we've all lived with huge uncertainty, fear and turmoil and there's little respite as global uncertainty continues, leading many of us to re-evaluate our lives.

"Asking WHY brings about a sense of taking control of an uncertain future"

So, it's naturalthat you are looking for a coach,feeling ready to ask your own questions about life and explore new directions in your life path.

Are you...

  • Ready to discover new purpose and direction in life?
  • Overwhelmed by anxiety and stress and looking for professional support to understand your thoughts and behaviour and make changes that stick?
  • Chained to your phone, computer or an unhelpful and unhealthy habit
  • Looking for a coach to support a significant change in your life?
  • Longing to shift your focus and slow things down so you can live more meaningfully?

Being human is complicated, life can be tough and living through a pandemic is something that we are all processing differently.

What next?

If this all sounds interesting please read on.

I have a unique approach to supporting your mental/physical wellness, personal growth and development and I understand the need to feel safe and calm in these uncertain times.

In my coaching practice I can also include, subject to a simple assessment,  the innovative SSP music therapy programmes.

The benefits of the SSP are many and include:

  • Increased wellbeing and resilience
  • Feeling safer, calmer and more grounded
  • Feeling less irritable, anxious, and overwhelmed
  • Increased sense of focus, motivation and creativity
  • Feeling more open to change
  • Increased sense of social connection
  • More ‘connected’ and less guarded and distant
  • A solid foundation that increases the effective
  • Create a solid springboard for change, including the foundation for healing from addictive behaviours

Are you ready to discover more?

The next step is to get in touch and I can offer you more detailed information about the SSP, if you are interested, or simply arrange a complimentary chat about your situation and what you are looking for.

It's important to book our complimentary discovery call before arranging any sessions to make sure we are a good fit and discuss how best to take our next steps.

It’s always such a privilege to be able to work with amazing humans. If you’d like to discover more, ask me some questions about coaching with or without the addition of the SSP, let’s talk soon. 

Contacting me is easy, you can send me an enquiry, email or call me.

I look forward to speaking to you soon.

Warmest wishes, 

Jayne

A selection of Testimonials

SSP

If you're at all in two minds whether this is for you I implore you to take the chance & go for it.

I think the beauty of this protocol is its simplicity, but I also understand thinking that it might be too simple & that it might be too left-field to do a thing because it's exactly what I thought before giving it ago, but you know what? It's changed my life and noticeable differences were instant.

The feeling I've been carrying for some years now, a constant nervous anxious hyper-alert state from the minute I woke up that came with me through every minute of every day dissipated as the week went on. The time & space I gave to the process made me know that fundamentally I was safe & secure.

I feel like I don't have to worry about whether I can face the day, I can roll better with whatever the day holds and I feel like time isn't waiting on me. I feel I am lead by my emotions not overwhelmed by them anymore. Rachael Nov 2019 ( I am happy to speak to prospective clients about it too!)

SSP

I found the whole process of doing the SSP easy and felt very well supported by you throughout. The hardest part was actually being open-minded enough to give it a try, even though I knew the science made sense.

I don’t really know what I was expecting to change as a result of doing the SSP but I have noticed many positive effects. I feel calmer now in a way that’s hard to describe and seem able to think more clearly. I have noticed that my thoughts aren’t so negative and I feel less tired.

I feel it’s been hugely valuable in my ongoing work of taking care of mental health and managing my responses to triggers and stress. Charlotte Nov 2019

SSP

In all honesty, I was a little sceptical about the SSP but willing to complete the programme and see what happened.

The trickiest part on days one and two was doing nothing and noticing how strange the filtered music sounded. Being so quiet is certainly odd but by day 3 I was keen to complete the challenge.

Whilst I didn’t notice an instant calmness, over the course of the following weeks since its completion I found I could focus more and remain calm in challenging situations.

In short, it’s easier to not sweat the small stuff now, so the benefits are positively affecting me directly, my relationships and my business. Michael Oct 2019

"Creeping up behind me was a wave that would overwhelm my state of mind, I knew I would lose control over my own life - an eating disorder was one manifestation - and depression would follow. With Jayne's help, I have learned what it was - the underlying problem. For me it was largely loneliness, starting from the distance from family and from being largely alone when raising young children. The patterns remained – many self-perpetuated - and I didn't realise how much it was hurting me. It was truly wonderful talking to Jayne whom I found to be a gifted, mature and very experienced guide out of the wilderness. I feel blessed our paths met. Clarity has been so empowering for me and I am now in control and every day I feel stronger. And when life happens, and storms brew, I know what to do to protect myself." KR

                                                                                                                             
"I wanted to say a massive thank you for everything you did and have helped me to achieve. Through your help and support, I have managed things I would never have dreamt of doing and my life is totally different and I am so much happier! The main reason for my email was to tell you the girl who was too scared to ever go for a coffee on her own is going travelling on her own, halfway around the world!!!!! I would be lying if I said I was not scared, I am terrified and excited but also so proud of myself and feel I owe so much to you and the amazing work you do.

"Thank you again for everything Jayne words cannot express how grateful I am to you.  You have enabled me to turn my life around!!!" R

"I honestly don't believe I'd be here if it weren't for you! 'Thank you' is not nearly enough" KN

"I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the work that you did with Susan. She is now so much more confident and able to cope with so much more than she did a year to 18 months ago. I wish you all the best with the work that you're doing with everyone else. There are many professionals out there who could benefit a lot from listening to you. I wish you success and happiness and again, thank you so very much." P B

"Your help, kindness and support has been vital in helping me begin the road to a brighter future. The advice and life coaching has given me the tools and confidence to explore difficult issues and made me look to the future rather than live in a past of regrets. Thank you." C.S

"Jayne naturally made me feel comfortable, enabling me to successfully remove barriers that were holding me back. She is very professional and offers that extra special element of holistic support that I have not found elsewhere. I highly recommend Jayne as a coach to you. Thank you Jayne. :-)" K.C.

"You have been a tower of strength to me on many occasions and keep me going on my way to recovery" B

"Just wanted to thank you for the Coaching that you have given me over the past six months. I've come a long way, with your motivation and strategies!" A P

I just wanted to let you know what a difference coaching has made to my life and to my career. I’ll be back to explore my next steps. Thank You. JP

I’m not sure where I’d be if I hadn’t asked for your professional coaching. It’s empowering to not surrender yourself to someone but to be part of the process of change. I now know how capable I am, I have my own mind fit kit and I am using it. My new business is about to launch, thank you! EW

You were there when I felt so very lost. You patiently helped me see my possibilities. If anyone wanted to make a small or large life change, I’d suggest they speak to you first. JS

Jayne brought clarity and focus back to my life and I enjoyed working with her in a very peaceful environment; she is very perceptive and calming and very creative. My time spent with Jayne gave me the chance to stop and think about my values and what is important to me, what really matters and to make a positive change to my life. PJ
