About me

***All sessions are now online for the duration of the Covid-19 crisis. Stay home and safe.***

I came to coaching and hypnotherapy after many years of enduring the stressful workload of primary teaching. Now I am well-placed to assist anyone who feels that their work-life balance is askew, who is overwhelmed but under appreciated or who feels like the proverbial square peg.

Everybody has their own strategy for managing stress but sometimes even so, events can overwhelm us and it's a sign of strength to seek assistance, not of weakness. Prolonged stress can tip over into anxiety; that's happened to me. It's about making a decision to be committed to your own health and peace of mind.

I genuinely believe that everyone has untapped resources within which will enable them to fulfil their most challenging dreams and ambitions. I am here to provide clarity, motivation and personalised support.

Every individual is different. An initial telephone consultation is free of charge. Then, the structure and timetable for sessions is flexible according to your needs. I aim to boost your positivity from the very first contact.

Further information


"I had reached a massive wall of doubts and fears and insecurities by the time I consulted Joanna.
I thought the session was going to involve a lot of talking on her part, with me listening and nodding and somehow going away wiser.
It wasn't like that at all. It was much better, although it involved more work on my part.
In fact, looking back, I think it was about drawing out and highlighting stuff - feeling, ambitions, plans - that were always there. I just wasn't able to access them.
Thanks to Joanna, that wall now has a gate in it that I can walk through whenever I am ready.
Cool! really cool! Thanks Joanna!'"

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a life coach's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the life coach to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
