About me

Hello, I’m Linzi, a time-served, certified and accredited coach.  

If I were to sum up the focus of my coaching, it’s this…

‘Imagine walking into a room full of people and your only focus is the authentic opportunity of learning about everybody else.’

This level of confidence means to truly know you - this level of confidence comes from how you feel within.

Our time together is exploring that which is within, where the answers reside.  Within is where life-changing and permanent change occurs.

I have behind me; time, experience, and qualifications, however, the only part of that which matters to you is being able to hold a space for you, for you to be truly heard and an opportunity for you to discover what you really want to have happen.

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"

My personal experience

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

I am so inspired seeing clients go from:

  • confusion to clarity
  • insecurity to confidence
  • a place of fear to a place of certainty

I love coaching and the massive life-changing effect it can have on clients.  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 clean coaching, which means being present with you, holding that soft space for your discovery.

I trained in clean language (a technique including powerful questions, enabling me to stay out of your thinking and not influence your thoughts). As a qualified NLP practitioner, for example 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:

The ability to walk into any room and 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. I offer confidentiality, great patience, non-judgemental understanding, and positivity with 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 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 a new direction.  By exploring an objective view,  coaching allows you see for yourself what things can mean. 

With NLP coaching can help reframe unhelpful 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
