About me

I believe that we all require some extra help at some time during our lives, and a Life Coach can be an amazing resource to tap into either to focus on specific problems or goals, or to help you better manage your life and the challenges you face both personally and at work. 

Through the Kelsey-Coaching Practice I work with many different clients who require some help either with personal issues (like weight loss or feeling lost, "overloaded" and unhappy) or those connected to their job, profession or career.   I have a broad base of experience and training from which to draw when working with people, and a sophisticated toolbox of techniques and approaches to help you aim for your potential. I work with clients who have emotional and psychological problems to enable them to better manage their lives and achieve greater fulfilment and personal confidence, those with physical problems such as chronic pain and IBS, those who want to achieve greater career success, or those who simply feel disorganised and temporarily lost or "frozen" and need some help organising their thoughts and getting together a workable plan and a helpful mind-set.

I tend to work with clients in a holistic manner, looking at all aspects of their lives, identifying anything they want to change and working hard to enable them to achieve their goals or solve their problems. 


I receive great feedback from my clients and I believe that's because I have emotional intelligence, self-awareness and a desire to constantly learn more to help my clients.  More importantly, I have an innate passion for helping people find solutions to their problems and work out what truly motivates them in life so that they can be as successful and happy as possible. 

My ability to 'be with you' during the coaching, and really listen and notice things about you and your needs, means that I can provide both the emotional and psychological support and the focused direction to help you achieve your personal best. 

Our sessions are totally confidential and my approach is practical, logical, supportive and entirely non-judgemental. The only things I expect of you are honesty and the desire to work hard, sometimes outside your comfort zone which is where personal development really takes place. 

I am a qualified Executive Coach and Leadership Mentor as well as Psychometrics Practitioner and am focused on results you achieve to help you in your career. I help clients holistically with their work, business and personal life challenges and objectives.  Why not read what others think of my approach, below..?

Using a wide range of coaching techniques and models including Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) EMDR, EFT, Hypnosis and goal focused coaching techniques, we work with you to arrive at greater self-awareness, clarity, balance, direction and ultimately increased satisfaction with your life.  You will feel emotionally and psychologically improved and more resilient and in control.

I generally work on a 1:1 basis for sessions of 1 to 2 hours over a period of weeks or months, until you have arrived at a place where you are feeling happier and more in control.

As an MBTI Psychometrics Practitioner, I am able to help you discover your own personality preferences and how to relate to others around you more effectively.  Sessions are available on a 1:1 basis for 2 hours, or in groups or teams for half day or full day, depending on needs/outcomes.

I am trained in EMDR and EFT, as well as Clinical Hypnosis, and NLP to enhance my high level coaching skills.  This means that I can offer the complete service working consciously and sub-consciously, to move you from point A to point B, helping you to achieve your personal best.

As the client, you will decide how you would like to work in terms of techniques and approaches, so nothing will be used with you that you are not 100% comfortable with.


Coaching and NLP Change Therapy is charged at £60.00 per hour.

The first consultation over the telephone is free of charge and allows you to decide if coaching and my approach is right for you.
