About me

Is this you?

  • You’re fed up with your job and don't feel like you’re progressing in your career
  • You have a rusty CV, you keep applying for jobs but don’t even get replies
  • You've 'lost yourself' after maternity leave or a career break
  • You love your work but find it increasingly stressful trying to juggle your career with looking after children or elderly parents
  • Your elderly parents need more and more help but you just don’t feel up to the task
  • You struggle with confidence, communication, being yourself
  • You want to ‘reinvent yourself’ following a major upheaval (redundancy, divorce, 'empty nest' a 'significant' birthday)
  • You’re having a mid-life crisis…at any age! You want to find meaning and direction, enjoy life more

I can help!

I worked for a major multi-national company for many years and specialised in personal development, communication and coaching. Trying to ‘practice what I preach’ I’ve successfully reinvented myself and love my new life as a ‘Change Coach’. I support people who want to make changes in their working lives, their family set-up or – tada! – themselves.

What kind of results will you get if you work with me?

  • More confidence at work, better communication skills, the ability to stand up to your boss, a mapped out career path, promotion, a pay rise!
  • A professional, knock-their-socks-off CV, new career opportunities, the ability to ‘sell’ yourself in today’s competitive job market, a new job
  • Work life balance that feels right for you
  • Peace of mind, reduced stress, increased self-esteem, ‘getting unstuck’, decisions made, problems solved

I’ve had experience of most of the changes I now help other people with so I can empathise. As a coach, I listen carefully and without judgement. My clients say that I make them feel safe, reassured and motivated – trust and confidentiality are very important to me. I’m also flexible and adapt to whatever clients need - time, space, email support, push, drive, humour, gentleness, challenge...

What my clients say about me

  • “Extremely perceptive”
  • “Gentle but searching approach"
  • "Bloody brilliant"
  • "Helped me start a new phase in life with confidence"
  • "Great empathy and understanding"
  • "Gave me the courage to be myself"
  • "Passion for coaching and managing change"
  • "Made me feel wonderfully comfortable and safe"

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.
