I am a qualified Transformational Coach.
Transformational coaching gives time and space for you to really think about what you want from your life. It encompasses all aspects of your life – your personal life, your work life, your business life - what’s going on in one area impacts on how you feel and act in all areas of your life. Coaching enables you to explore what’s important to you, what’s working for you, what’s not and what’s holding you back. This clarity allows you to create a vision of how you want your life to be and the confidence to make conscious choices to move you towards that.
I specialise in working with busy people who want to feel happier, healthier and more fulfilled. They want more from their life! They are tired of feeling overwhelmed, of overthinking and of people pleasing, and want to live a better way for their mental and physical wellbeing.
I also work with progressive companies, who are committed to the wellbeing of their staff, to deliver wellbeing & coaching programmes.
“When I first met Lyn, my job was variously interesting, demanding and infuriating. I juggled working full time with 3 tweens (including twins!): a combination for which younger female colleagues told me they saw me as a role model.
Trouble was I didn’t feel that way at all. I was unable to value the skills that made me unique or even acknowledge that my contribution mattered. I never seemed to be able to prioritise those things that would be better for me, leading to a further sense of helplessness.
I can safely say my sessions with Lyn have been transformational. I am still all those things I described in the first paragraph. However, I am so much more comfortable in my own skin. I am able to make mindful, considered decisions. It’s like a fog has been lifted and I can hold my head high again.
Lyn is never confrontational. She listens. And listens. And then asks the one killer question that makes the difference. It’s a real skill and one that has changed my life for the better.” Neela, London, One to One Coaching
"When I was at a cross-roads in my life and all I had was uncertainty, Lyn helped me to identify where I was now, appreciate where I'd been and how to imagine and realise the future I wanted. Over a series of sessions, designed to subtly take me through the process, Lyn listened, gently probed with thoughtful and powerful questions and helped me to arrive at the answers to questions that I didn't even know to ask.
Lyn's one-to-one coaching became so important in my life at a time when I could just open up, talk and really be listened to. That was enough to life the "fog" and see my path and I couldn't have done it without Lyn. Highly recommend." Paul, Edinburgh, One to One Coaching
“It’s been a pleasure to work with Lyn. Lyn listened to me without judgement and challenged me to recognise the areas of my life that were holding me back. She is extremely personable yet professional and has provided me with the tools I need to move forward in life with confidence and clarity. I would recommend Lyn in a heartbeat.” Nicole, Edinburgh, One to One Coaching
"I found working with Lyn very helpful and enlightening. It allowed us to discuss me, without having to focus on all the "white noise" that comes with family and working life. Lyn herself is very friendly and engaging company and makes you feel relaxed and positive about talking about yourself rather than selfish." Keith, Glasgow, One to One Coaching
“I’ve had quite a few different experiences over the last three years with different types of coaching. I’ve had 1-1 coaching over 10 sessions, a six month group programme, a 21 day programme, a 3 month group programme as well as countless hours on podcasts, listening to audible books and reading lots and lots of articles. This doesn’t make me an expert but it does help me to understand value. This day long course has hands down been the best and most useful way that I’ve spent my time. Not just the day but I’ve not been able to stop thinking about it or acting on it since I left. It just was so insightful and really helped me connect with a true passion of mine that I thought I wouldn’t be able to pursue because of all the things I’d told myself made it impossible. I wasn’t trained enough, I didn’t have enough technical knowledge, I didn’t have enough time…. A whole lot of reasons to keep me safe rather than just give it a go and see where it goes. I’m already further along in the process than I thought I would be and I feel so enthusiastic and alive in a way that I haven’t done in a while. A game changer!" Michelle, Dunfermline, Intensive Day Coaching

Areas of coaching I deal with
A good rapport between client and coach is essential. The first step is a free 30 minute introductory call. This is important for us both to get a feel for how it would be to work together and if we would be a good fit.
A transformation takes time and commitment, and this builds as new thinking and habits are imbedded. How long I work with a client depends on what the client wishes to achieve. Every client is different.
The first session usually takes 90 minutes and subsequent sessions are 60 minutes. The cost per session in £150.
I offer intensive one to one day sessions in North Berwick. These run from 10am to 5pm with an hour for lunch. The cost for the day is £495. Each session is entirely bespoke and designed to achieve the brief set by the client.
I also offer Clarity Calls for individuals and Business Strategy Calls for business owners at £150 for 60 minutes. Focussed questioning can often bring clarity and fresh perspectives.
I love being outdoors and am passionate about spending time in nature, with animals and by the sea. I love travel, food, home interiors and personal development. There is so much to learn.
