About me

Are you ready to make changes in your life with the support of a warm-hearted, caring coach who is right by your side encouraging you? If that sounds good to you I invite you for a free chat to find out more. Check out my website for a link to book that.

With 28 years of experience as a life coach, HeartMath Coach and counsellor I have developed a methodology for making personal change and transformation easy and stress-free. My heart-centred approach is based on encouragement, empathy and the belief that we all have within us the power to live the life we dream of.

I help you find your inner power and heal the blocks that stand in the way of using it - so you can move forward with self-assured confidence.

Your inner power that...

  • Knows what you need now to enable you to thrive
  • Knows your full potential and what you are really capable of
  • Will guide you, step by step towards that
  • Will give you the inner resources and motivation to take inspired action
  • Will heal any blocks in the way of that
  • Will help you move beyond old patterns in ways that feel easy

This coaching approach supports you to know that you already have all you need inside you. You are already good enough. You are already strong enough, wise enough, loving enough.  When you experience all this coming alive in you - you develop the kind of confidence that means you can face any challenge in life and thrive and truly fulfil your potential. Life stops being a struggle and becomes an exciting adventure.

My unique approach has grown out of nearly 30 years of experience in seeing what works in the self-development world. I have trained in a multitude of modalities and tools and have all those at my fingertips if needed. But the thing that I have found brings the swiftest, most reliable, consistent and enduring results is helping you switch on your own inner power to guide and empower you. When you do that everything changes and life becomes a different game…less like pushing a boulder uphill and more like a bird soaring with the freedom to go where inspiration takes it.

What other people have said about working with me...

'Josie is a highly-skilled life coach. She can work on many different levels, from more practical down to earth counselling and psychotherapeutic techniques, to very deep spiritual and heart-based healing techniques. As well as having multiple strings to her bow, Josie is highly intuitive, compassionate, intelligent and wise, keeping you very safe and allowing you to work at your own pace.' Chris - Leeds

'I started working with Josie because of confusion over my career direction which was triggered by health issues. The difference it has made to me is amazing. Not only did my health improve, I am now doing work that feels like a career rather than just a job. In working with Josie I have gained far more than just learning self-help techniques, I have discovered a powerful and inspiring part of me that I didn’t know was there and which I now know I can rely on.' David - London

‘I would recommend coaching with Josie to anyone who is wanting insight to understand what is getting in the way of them moving forwards to fulfil their potential, especially if they have a dream or vision they want to fulfil. Josie through her skilled and healing presence led me through a process of deep change and transformation‘. Lynne - Birmingham

Training, qualifications & experience

Certified Transformational Coach with The Centre For Transformational Coaching - 2017

Licensed HeartMath Coach with HeartMath UK - 2015

My initial training, completed in 1993, was a 3-year Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy, with the Person-Centred Approach Institute International. I then completed a Foundation in Psychosynthesis with the Centre for Psychosynthesis Studies in 1999.

This was followed up with training in Person Centred Expressive Therapy, Arnie Mindel’s Process Work, and William Bloom’s Core Energy Management.

I have taken numerous other training and self-development courses and will continue to do so, as I am committed to my Continuing Professional Development. It is enriching to me to always expand and develop the way I work and what I offer as a coach. Further past training and courses include - EFT Level 3 Diploma with Gwyneth Moss, Mastering Alchemy with Jim Self and Supernova Business Coaching with Jo Casey.

My core work has developed from a passion to explore the power of the heart, which has meant I’ve explored this in great depth over many years. There are several organisations and teachers that have particularly inspired my understanding and experience. The HeartMath® Institute is obviously a major influence. Others include Christian Pankhurst, Tej Steiner, Open Heart Meditation and The Institute of Applied Meditation.

I have regular supervision with a qualified supervisor.

I am a member of the Association for Coaching, and I abide by their Code of Ethics and Practice.

I offer a free 30-minute Exploration Call which you can book here...

My fees are £75 for 90 minutes.

Typically it works best to have a minimum of 3 coaching sessions to really get the full benefits of coaching. But I’m flexible and know that we all have different needs. Maybe you would like to experience a one-off session with me to get a feel for the way I work. Or maybe you just know that booking a session is the right thing for you now.

If you want to book a session you can do that here...

I am looking forward to working with you. Do get in touch if you have any questions at all...!

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.

Wheelchair user access

I use Zoom for the coaching calls - so you will be able to access support from me with no need for travel.


I am very flexible - working daytimes, several evenings and some weekends. I have an appointments scheduler where you can easily find a time to suit you and book it directly.
