Linda King MNCP
I am a life and wellbeing coach, using coaching and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) to help you achieve your full potential - be it career, confidence, personal development, relegating bad memories or experiences to the past ... whatever you really want, you can make it happen.
Coaching will make you feel better about anything and everything. Being listened to is just wonderful and a rare luxury. A coaching session really is your time and it's all about you.
Whether the change you want to make is major or minor, whether you are looking to improve your relationships or working situation, put something behind you, change a 'bad' habit or start up a new, good habit, improve the balance in your life, boost your confidence, achieve something you long for, view things differently - coaching can help.
I offer face-to-face coaching, telephone and Skype, whichever suits you best.
Face-to-face can be at my premises or in a public place such as a coffee shop - we could even go for a walk!
As everyone's life-balance is different, I also offer weekend and evening appointments.

Fran, Colchester ('This is Me!' workshop 27/10/19)
It was fab! I really enjoyed it and came away with lots to think about and have had a couple of 'wow' moments since the day,when I have really considered why and how I feel about certain things and how I react and how they are linked to so many past events! I am trying to work through them with your suggestions and inspirations from the day.

I found being with amazing women who were willing to share their feelings a great privilege and Linda's guidance through the session lovely and very empowering. I now have some positive strategies to move forward.

Such a warm, professional and compassionate lady. Linda is made for the role as a life coach. Would highly recommend her.
Rebecca, Suffolk, May 2019
Linda is a compassionate skilled person and has a natural unique ability to get to the heart of the problem.
She is friendly, trustworthy, sincere and easy to talk to.
In our coaching sessions, she always made me feel like she truly cared.
Just by following her lead and putting in the work, you will come out a new stronger ‘You’.
Sue B, Essex, March 2019
I have recently visited Linda to deal with pressures from the past and present. Linda has a very unique way of helping you achieve the life you deserve. So glad I saw Linda and would thoroughly recommend her to others.
Susie, Colchester, January 2019
Linda gave me a coaching session and I found it such a different approach to things, it was worth going... Linda is wonderful and very calming! I recommend highly... Thankyou!
Carole, Colchester, January 2019
I have had three Life Coaching sessions with Linda and I can honestly say that I have felt progressively better after each one. I was encouraged to talk about my issues and gently prompted to work my way through my feelings and emotions, not worrying about getting upset and tearful but seeing that as a release of pent up frustration. Linda encouraged me to look at things from a different perspective and we practised some exercises that helped me to develop strategies to resolve my problems for myself, which is the main aim of Life Coaching. I found it to be an amazingly rewarding and calming process and would not hesitate to recommend Linda to anyone who is feeling troubled by any aspects of their life. She is wonderfully empathetic, perceptive and totally professional.
Sue, Colchester, November 2018
I found my life coaching experience to be very uplifting and empowering. The fact that you listened to me 100% instilled me with so much confidence and it felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders as I had been carrying around a lot of excess baggage of negative thoughts. After the first session there felt light at the end of the tunnel and I was feeling more positive. The rapport we had together felt as if no subject was taboo so thank you. I will be recommending you to all my friends and would like to take this opportunity to wish you every success in the future as you deserve it.
Thank you once again.
Amanda, Colchester, September 2018
I have always thought that when faced with a problem there are two courses of action – fix the problem by myself or if I can’t, then just ignore it and hope it goes away.
When the opportunity for Life Coaching with Linda presented itself, I thought it would be interesting to give it a try but didn’t really expect to gain much from it. How wrong I was!
Linda has enabled me to explore areas of my life which I am finding difficult. Rather than just avoiding the things which are holding me back, Linda has supported me to reflect on what I might like to change and how I may be able to do this. She is so easy to talk to that I have not felt embarrassed or awkward. I find it difficult to ask for help, but Linda has made me feel that I am helping myself. She doesn’t give me ‘answers’ but has enabled me to view my feelings in a different way and consider alternatives.
Life Coaching may appear to be a ‘luxury’ but in our busy lives, knowing as we do the importance of good mental health, I think my sessions with Linda may actually be a necessity for my wellbeing.
P.S. Essex, October 2018
Linda made it very clear that any information shared would be held in the strictest confidence and explained what would happen clearly. At the beginning of each session I was greeted warmly and put at my ease, settling into a calm, quiet room. Linda has an easy friendly manner, listens carefully and asks pertinent questions to promote me thinking of a way through any issues that I have identified. Areas to focus on were decided on by me once an analysis of all areas of life had been charted. Linda supported my thinking rather than telling me what to do. It was a really useful experience for me and after only three sessions, I now give more time to sit and think through my options. My assessment of different areas of life had shifted after three. I found it a really useful experience and I fully recommend Linda as a life coach.
Meg, Leamington Spa, October 2018
Linda gave me life coaching as part of her training before my driving test, and it was an immensely helpful experience! It definitely helped with my anxiety on the day, and Linda herself is such a caring, calm, warm person - speaking to her helped put a lot of things into focus and perspective, and I would thoroughly recommend her!
