About me

Hello, I’m Linzi, a time served and accredited coach.  I provide a safe space where you can be heard; a non-judgemental, kind and friendly space in which to explore how best to move forward in a way that is right for you.  When you learn who you truly are and when the answers come from within, you can move forward with confidence; the rest will just fall into place.

In my client's words, they came to me because:

"I'm feeling lost and fed up with feeling uncertain of who I am and what needs to change"

"I'm suffering with anxiety and my confidence is at an all time low"

I've lost my sense of purpose and perspective of what I am doing in life, a bit of a mess really"

"I need insight into my own internal struggles, things that are holding me back in life"

"I'm an empty-nester who worries what others think and I feel life is passing me by"

"I'm emotionally confused and beginning to suffer from panic attacks"

Having suffered debilitating depression in my past, I am fully aware how that place can feel.  However, more importantly, I have learned fundamental routes out of that place by understanding more the process.

I am so inspired seeing clients go from confused to clarity; from insecure to confidence; from fear to certainty.

I love coaching and the massive change it can mean for people.  I decided that helping people go from feeling despair and uncertainty, to living with absolute fulfilment was my ultimate passion and have spent the last 10 years doing just that.

I studied and became accredited at coaching and that was fabulous but I wanted to learn more. So, I took a year to study soul based coaching, which means nothing more than being present with you, holding that soft space for your discovery.

Using clean language (a type of powerful questions) enables me to stay out of your thinking and not influence your thoughts.  Using NLP, among other things, allows us to take events from the past and work with them so we can move forward, unencumbered.  It has become my life’s work, to learn and develop new ways to help me and others find new paths to true fulfilment.

Having these skills for you just means that you are in safe hands to move forward effectively and make transformational and permanent change.

Please see below or click here if you are interested in reading feedback from clients so you can really see the impact good, solution focused coaching can have.

One of the results you can expect after working with me is:

When you walk into a room you know that who you are is more than enough; this is brought about by defining that inner confidence.

Together we will focus on solutions, not problems and look at how you can live with peace and joy, the way we are meant to.

Why me?

I am a no bells and whistles coach, not an A – B coach, not a success coach or business coach (although business coaching begins with you). I am merely confidentiality, great patience, non-judgemental understanding, positivity and a genuine passion to help you find your inner strength. That way, you go on to achieve all you want.  Who I am as a coach, for me, is way more important than what I do. Having a genuine compassion in supporting you while you find your own solutions and fulfilment and a permanent way out of where and how you feel now, to ultimately how you want to feel.

Getting in touch...

I would love to hear from you so send me an email or give me a call on 07884 970502 and let's firstly see if what I do is right for you, only then can we decide if we are right for each other.

Other areas of coaching I deal with

Anxiety/Stress/Fear/Panic attacks

It can be debilitating to feel anxious. It can affect so many parts of our lives but instead of avoiding the feelings, is it time to face them and understand them? Through conversation, we would find out what is the cause rather than focusing on the fear itself. Don't do what you have always done, by avoiding it or denying it, try something different and take a step in your new direction. By exploring an objective view, coaching allows you see for yourself what things can mean. With NLP too, coaching can help reframe those unhelpful thoughts.


Relationships should enhance our life experience. Sometimes, we can forget what that relationship was all about when the responsibilities of everyday life take their toll. Through conversation, coaching can enable you to find out what it is that you want from yours


Is your business or your job not what you hoped? Do you feel not in control and it's all one big to-do list and daily grind? Let's look again at what it is meant to be. Coaching will enable you to get a better view of what is going on and explore ways to make lasting change.

Additional information

Free initial consultation -

This enables us to get to know each other over a coffee.

It's an opportunity for me to understand what you would like from coaching and for you to get a clear picture of how my coaching works and how it can help you.

The most important thing initially is to make sure that what I do is the right way forward for you, if not, I can recommend other therapies that may help you better. (Rapport is the most important ingredient in coaching so if we don't 'click', it simply doesn't work)

When I work

I am available weekdays and evenings.

All current coaching is online which has proved to be an amazing experience giving space to be purely with your thoughts

INTEGRITY is at the centre of my coaching.

Here is what my some of my clients have said...

When I came to Linzi, I was looking for help to get out of an emotional muddle, which I had no idea how to make sense of. I was suffering with anxiety and my confidence was at an all time low. I had lost my sense of purpose and perspective of what I was doing in life. I was a bit of a mess really!

I found the coaching experience to be very profound, to be truly ‘heard’ by someone is not something I’d experienced before. We can tell other people how we feel sometimes but they may not be able to really listen or help us move forward. Linzi’s lovely supportive nature, training and experience helped me unravel my internal chaos firstly and then helped me build up my confidence and self belief from there.

Linzi has helped me move from a place of inner turmoil to a place of choices by helping me shift my mindset. I have learnt such a lot and I am so relieved not to have the awful burden of anxiety, feeling so much calmer and happier in myself. I feel so much stronger and ready for the future, I can’t thank Linzi enough for all her guidance and support.

Nicola Williams, Cheadle


Life coaching with Linzi has been life-changing for me. Through our work together, I have been able to look inside myself and see where my strength truly lies, in what was there all along. She really has a unique way of guiding you to realise the most important things about yourself without influencing you to go down any one particular path. Anyone who is considering this work, I would definitely recommend it. It’s challenging, yet most rewarding at the same time!

Delphine Evans, Marple


The sessions with Linzi literally changed my life. They changed my outlook and more than I could have imagined. I am not one for cheesey over the top throwing around of this phrase so when I say the sessions changed my life I am using this phrase exactly as it is meant. Linzi’s sessions enabled me to feel empowered and understand myself, get to the route of questions I would never have understood I needed answering on my own. The understanding of myself helped me to then build foundations to understand others around me and why I had made choices that I thought were not helping me. I found out they were for me, and they fed me well and therefore I could accept my own praise, meaning I had time to give acceptance, understanding and time to people around me who I valued the most. I have rebuilt relationships, been more calm in very serious conflicts and difficult conversations that in the past would have had me running away or in a state of anxiety. It was all so very simple in the end, but I would never have made it without Linzi’s help. She was patient, understanding and just knew exactly how to help me find out for myself.

I had 6 sessions and I have achieved what I wanted and gained so much more from the sessions. I am continuing with more sessions because I have achieved so much and am now looking forward to giving myself time to grow my self development, so I can better help those around me and build the best relationships and quality of life.

Thanks again and I am looking forward to more sessions in 2020.

Linzi I just need to write to say thank you for your 6 session Life Coaching programme…

I had reached a point in my life where I had made huge changes in my life, I was achieving and finally working for myself following my passion. I had made a really big leap into the unknown, everything was going amazingly well but I still didn’t feel happy…I simply couldn’t understand why what was missing… Confidently living on my own, I was at a loss to explore this issue and so I reached out to you… It’s the best thing I have ever done! Over your structured 6 sessions going at a pace that I dictated, I discovered that my battles were over and I really did have what I was personally seeking, right here, right now!

I feel like an amazing weight has been lifted and I feel so proud of myself.

This has been the best self-investment I could have ever made and if things overwhelm me again I wouldn’t hesitate to come back to you! I would highly recommend you, no matter how much self-work and transformational work you have personally completed, a little coaching from you can work miracles…..

In much gratitude love Jane xxx

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.

There are no steps and WC access is on the same level. Having previously worked as a complex carer I am familiar with the needs of wheelchair users
