Lisa Berry | BA (Hons) | PGCert | Certified Life Coach | AC Member
Hello, my name is Lisa, I’m pleased you have found your way to my profile so I can help you. I am qualified to Batchelor Degree level, a Certified Life Coach and member of the Association of Coaching, and adhere to their code of ethics. I am a teacher of many years, with management and leadership experience within the self-development, learning and education sector. I live in Cheshire with my husband and 3 young sons.
My career has been spent helping people to achieve their goals, so they can move to the next phase of life. Through teaching, educating and mentoring people I have become a highly skilled Coaching practitioner. My philosophy is that we can all self-improve, this could be in our career, home life, relationships, business and many other areas. I have surrounded myself with some of the highest performing professionals and entrepreneurs across the sector, which inspired me to set up my own coaching business and work with a variety of people every day to help them achieve their goals.
How Coaching can Help
Life coaching is based on a mutual relationship between myself the coach, and you the coachee (client). As your dedicated coach, I will use a range of coaching tools and strategies as well as careful tailored questioning, to support and help you work towards personal or professional goals in your life. My coaching will make you think and change perspective, as well as challenge self limiting beliefs or fears you may have. My role is to help bridge the gap between where you are now, and where you want to be in the near- or longer-term future.
What will a first session look like?
Your first session is free, and will last for up to an hour. In that time I will get to know you more and give you space and time to think about, and answer some questions. I will ask you questions about what's going on, what you wish to achieve and what is generally holding you back. You can ask me any questions about the process, tell me what you want to get out of it, and anything else you feel you want to know more about.
Following on from your free first discovery session you are welcome to book a block of sessions or package, but you are under no obligation to do so at all. Clients will sometimes book one off sessions, but coaching is at its most powerful when practiced over time so I recommend 4-8 sessions ideally, to really get to the root of an issue, and move you forward.
Each session is 60 minutes long and online, using zoom. I often create and share resources based on what you have said, or what we are working on such as PowerPoints or other coaching content. Sessions are preferably usually weekly or fortnightly, in order to keep the "momentum" going, but I am flexible and work to your exact needs and requirements.
Once a block of sessions is complete, I offer clients a free "catch up" session within 3 months of completion, so we can talk, evaluate and review your progress made.
Clients are also given a free copy of my brand new coaching eBook to introduce them to Life Coaching and the many benefits it can bring. This can also be accessed from my website at www.lisaberrylifecoach.com
In between sessions I will set homework and small personal challenges. These are to help you think, reflect and embed the work we do together. It may also give you the chance to do some work which we may begin with in the next session, as a focal and talking point. All tasks are tailored to you and are used to help you learn and achieve your goal. I shall provide all resources and instructions on what to do.
Examples of areas I cover are:
Covid has changed everything, many of us have had time to reflect and re-evaluate our lives and ask, is this it? Do you feel the urge to change your situation, job, role, industry or start a new career but fear is holding you back? Maybe locate to a new area? Maybe you don't have the right "idea" or you don't have a clue where to start or what to do. Work with me, let's find the new location, job, career or business venture you need.
Health Do you wish to become a healthier version of yourself? Do you feel that you are worried about your life span and how long you may have with loved ones? I can help you identify what is holding you back, what fears you have and how you can overcome these in order to live a more full, healthy and rewarding life.
Do you find yourself stuck in a negative loop with relationships in or out of work? Making the same mistakes and having the same regrets? If so, I can help you identify these issues and set personal goals to work towards, enabling you to find and enjoy healthy, fulfilling and satisfying relationships with others that you deserve.
Fulfilment & Purpose
Does the life you lead now align with your vision, values and dreams that you had or have? Maybe on paper you are “successful” and have it all, but you feel unfilled or you have lost your purpose? Together through coaching we can work out what is going on, set goals and work towards these so that you can reach a point where you do feel fulfilled and purposeful in life.
Career & Work
Are you bored at work and trapped in a cycle of knowing this, but can’t get out and move forward? Maybe your trapped by your own success and salary but feel bored, uncreative and procrastinate to much? Let’s talk, I can help you look at the situation from an objective point of view, set goals around your career and work and move towards the achievement of this so that you are a happier more productive person in work and in life
Stress and Anxiety
Do you find yourself worrying about big and small things to much? Overthinking things, speculating on bad things happening before an event has taken place? Maybe you have self-limiting beliefs holding you back, which no longer serve you. If so, Life coaching with me will identify these deeper issues, and put things into perspective. We can talk, find out what’s going on, challenge these beliefs, reaffirm new ones and set goals and move towards these, so you can break free from those negative habits, let these anxieties go and live the life you truly want.
Do you doubt yourself? Compare yourself to others? You don’t need to live this way, there is a happier way to live, we can talk and overcome this together by looking back, looking at now, and then looking to a brighter future. Life coaching with me can enable you to feel compassion towards yourself, learning to love yourself, feeling confidant and happier.
Do you suffer from Imposter Syndrome where you don’t feel good enough? Or that you will be “found out”? these are limiting beliefs, they are not true and are holding you back in work and in life – working with me will prove that. Life coaching can enable you to feel assured, confident and motivated going forward in the workplace to get the promotion you want, lead your team authentically and with conviction.
Have you tried every diet going? Failed and re-started, regained the weight and felt bad about yourself over and over again? Try life coaching instead, if you have not tried this yet then working on the mind alongside the body can help you discover what is really holding you back, give you the insight you need to understand what is really going on, become more self-loving and compassionate and help you set realistic attainable goals moving forward so that you can achieve your weight loss goals.
Got work to do, and keep putting it off? What are you afraid of? Talk to me, I can help you find out and deal with this so that you can be the most productive version of yourself in and out of the workplace. Procrastination is a consequence of a bigger issue or fear, we can discover what it is and eliminate it! You can feel empowered to achieve goals in life and work without worry and anxiety anymore.

"After a session with Lisa she really made me look at the future differently. She put my mind in a positive position and made me less worried about my ideas for change. I would definitely recommend her services".
"Lisa is a great coach and I truly value the time we spent together and the progress that she helped me make in my life. I wouldn't be this far along in my goals or have this much courage to push forward without her support, tips and motivation. I am enjoying my life more as I feel more confident to aim higher for the things in life and she taught me to believe in myself more. I now have the tools and the positive attitude to carry on with the changes I have put in place with Lisa’s help". Nicola G
"I have been being advised by Lisa for a number of years. I have always found her guidance to be measured, practical and with a strong emphasis on being kind and nurturing to yourself in order to get the best out of your life and achievements.
One of Lisa’s greatest strengths is her humour and ability to see past adversity. My admiration for Lisa and her “can do” attitude has meant that she is a consistent advisor to me and her support in various tumultuous times has been invaluable".
"Lisa has provided a service second to none, delivering encouraging, thought-provoking conversation that has resulted in some profound lightbulb moments. The coaching has aided me greatly in deciding my direction moving forward, ultimately giving me to tools to build a solid plan of action, along with the determination to see it through".
