About me

Coaching is a conversation that creates change. The conversations we'll have will help you to remove barriers to living the life you really want and take steps towards lasting changes. Whether you want to address a career goal, improve your relationships or realise a personal dream, I can help you.

You might be looking for a coach because you're seeking help to achieve a particular ambition or goal. Or perhaps you're currently facing changes in your work or personal life and are in need of support to move through them. Maybe it's a mix of the above, or you're not sure exactly what's bothering you - you just know that the life you're currently living doesn't feel like 'you'. Whatever your personal circumstances, I can help you.

When we work together you will experience:

  • Greater clarity - on what's really important to you in your life.
  • Increased confidence - to make the changes you want.
  • Deeper insight - about what you want more of in your life and what you want less of.
  • Improved sense of wellbeing - as a result of living in a more intentional way.

Essentially, I will support you to live the life you want. A life in which you feel less stressed, more focused and which feels more authentically YOU.

About me:

I love working with people - it's been the constant throughout my career. Supporting people to thrive both personally and professionally is its own reward. My previous career in cultural management focused on people and communication.

Some years ago, when stuck in a rut I was struggling to believe I might ever get out of, a friend recommended coaching to me. It's not an overstatement to say that those first sessions really did change my life. I was able to make profound changes and saw for myself what a powerful tool coaching is. Later, I was working as CEO of an arts venue but gradually came to see that I wanted to direct my passion for people and creativity into coaching. I wanted to help other people to benefit from this process. I went on to train as a coach myself and I now work directly with people to help them make the changes they want to see in their lives.

Am I the right coach for you?

Ensuring you can make an informed choice about whether I am the coach for you is why I suggest all clients have a free consultation before deciding if you want to proceed.

You might well be sharing personal information, anxieties or aspirations with your coach - perhaps things you haven't shared with anyone else. It's important that you feel at ease and confident during our time together. The coaching process can only be truly effective when you feel able to be honest and open - your relationship with your coach really matters. So visit my website and contact me today to arrange a no obligation chat to find out if I'm the coach for you.

What my clients say about working with me:

Valerie K. - "Laura has really helped me to move forward through a really difficult phase in my life towards significant transition. With Laura’s help I am now on a life journey, which has helped me to focus on what is really in my heart for a future career and lifestyle change. Laura is warm, encouraging and compassionate, with excellent listening skills. She has assisted me to achieve insight, to identify my goals and develop a positive framework to achieve my objectives and make this change happen. I am calmer, more confident and excited about the future. Thank you so much for this gift of insight."

A Southwell - "I had no idea how much life coaching would benefit me until I had these sessions. After each one I was motivated and positive, and I achieved so much every time! I had four sessions and I genuinely feel that I am much more focused because of them. I now know exactly what I want from my career and believe I have the strategies to achieve my goals, all thanks to Laura!"

Harriet - "Laura was a huge help during a period of time where I was questioning my career goals; from understanding why I do what I do, through to what skills I need to develop to get where I want to be – and also where I want to be! The sessions were incredibly insightful and really allowed me to reflect on my thoughts. I feel I’ve made noticeable changes to my day-to-day working life – in just three sessions too!"
