About me

Hi, I’m Liza and I help women 40+ who are worried they are losing their identity, the person they used to be.

Forget about the roles you play as a mother, a wife or partner and at work; forget about where you live and what type of house you live in, the car you drive and the clothes you wear.  Who are you when these labels are removed? I’m talking about who you were pre-relationship, career and pre-kids. Do you remember that person you used to be?

Who are you without them?

If you’ve spent some time speaking to friends, maybe even a therapist or your doctor and have been left feeling just as stuck and directionless, don’t despair. Many clients start off from a similar space. You may need support because the journey you’re going on is one that people like best friends or your partner are too close to understand.

What would some freedom be worth, to explore yourself again? Uninterrupted and without any pressure to perform?

My journey

It started in the early 1990’s when I volunteered for a charity that worked with adults who had been abused. I felt a real connection to them and witnessed how they were changing their lives significantly by just simply talking through some of their problems.

This set my path on a journey of helping others.

At a young age, you can change your life, but I began to realise, that at any age you can also change your life.

I continued my journey of becoming a teacher, mentor, trainer and support network to numerous young people and adults and then I began to struggle… 

My lifetime had been a combination of balancing my children, my career and life and it all got too much. 

My marriage withered away and I ended up in what I would call a breakdown (I didn’t know at the time but I was also peri-menopausal) - a single mum with four kids and having six months off work. I had to change my life. I could have really done with a friendly hand on that journey.

So…I discovered life coaching, and never looked back. That life changing process put the last piece of the never ending jigsaw puzzle into place and finally connected me to who I was meant to be. 

Now I’m dealing with life instead of struggling. 

I’m confident and self-satisfied; now I accept my limiting beliefs and challenges and simply deal with them. I have a home that is filled with joy, a partner who understands me and a career I love. 

I grabbed life and never looked back!

Further information

A recent review:

My sessions with Liza have been life changing. I worked with Liza to identify the areas of my life I wanted to change and understand why I had such negative thoughts about those aspects. I can't express how much the sessions with Liza have changed my life. 

My thoughts about my body image have completely changed, so much so that instead of being 'that Mom' who sits with the bags at the beach whilst everyone else goes swimming, I had one of the most memorable experiences ever when I went in the sea in a bikini with my children - even they were surprised that I went in with them! 

Liza has an incredible calming presence and no matter what was being discussed, I always felt safe, valued and comfortable with her.  Liza has helped me to focus on the present without worrying about the past, what might happen in the future or other people's opinions. I will be eternally grateful for the time that Liza spent with me - I genuinely feel like a different person...or more accurately I feel like myself again after feeling lost for so many years. 

Many thanks
