About me

If you have made it this far, you are already beginning to create change in your life.

  • You may be feeling anxious, worried or lacking self-esteem and wanting to boost your confidence and reduce worry.
  • Perhaps you are stuck feeling frustrated or angry, doing the same behaviours or habits that you feel have a negative impact your well-being.
  • Struggling with career satisfaction? Finding it hard to communicate or be heard by others. Or just sick of playing over the same issues in your head?
  • Frustrating yourself , with critical self- talk and feeling not good enough which leads to you holding back on your goals?

I work with people who have a gap between where you are and where you want to be in life.  ( Emotional, Career, Life Goals, Behaviour Change, Trauma)

I believe that everyone deserves to live a life equipped with the right resources to enhance mental health and well-being. I coach individuals and teams to personally develop yourself, for a healthier, happier life.

The coaching process is about putting mind ( your mind) over matter ( the problem).

Together we will help to identify & understand the things that stop you from achieving the change you want. Exploring solutions to help you think, feel or behave in ways to do things differently for the better.

Coaching helps you to identify the core of the issue, without having to spend too much time talking about the problem.  The focus of the sessions are on defining and achieving the change you desire in life.

Whether you are working on reaching a goal or want to stop doing or feeling something that gets in your way of happiness. Coaching helps you gain a range of resources  that change to happen.

I offer a supportive and focused approach to coaching, sessions are a non-judgmental space to bring your whole self and create change. This is done through a range of coaching approaches suited to the needs of you.

Prior to having my own coaching business I worked and managed mental health and employability services in the third and private sector helping staff and clients to achieve change in their life, recovery or career.

LOOKING FOR SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT: I also offer coaching in nature packages through sister company Where The Mind Grows www.wherethemindgrows.co.uk.

This 4 phase coaching package takes the sessions out into nature, naturally enhancing the experience and helping to reduce stress and bring about clarity and calm. We use practical coaching resources to help you get over life's hurdles (be is stress, grief, low self-esteem or even finding motivation or creativity).

The 4 phase coaching programme enables you to identify goals and focus on a vision to enhance your life. We draw on your internal resources, explore and resolve internal barriers and build resilience. The programme is completed by exploring the internal and external networks that will enhance your life and make your goals a reality.

The sessions draw on NLP Coaching,  Eco-Psychology and natural principles, meaning we utilise and draw upon resources from with your mind (inside) and through interaction and learning from the resilience of nature.

These sessions are particularly relevant for anyone wanting to reduce anxiety and stress, build confidence or if you find yourself feeling a little enclosed and yearning for space and nature in your life.
