About me

I am a life and performance coach and NLP practitioner, based in North Yorkshire and East Riding, however I coach people across the UK and internationally online.

My coaching approach is authentic, non judgemental and forward focused. If you have a specific goal that you would like to work towards, or you feel that you need to make changes in any area of your life, then I can help you to do this. Coaching with me is about looking at where you are now and where you want to be, identifying any barriers or limiting beliefs that are holding you back. We will work to unravel your thoughts and to see a clearer path in front of you, helping you to overcome these barriers and beliefs. We create new perspectives, healthier thought patterns and a life that feels more meaningful and balanced.

We will also celebrate your resourcefulness, achievements and strengths, helping you to achieve a greater understanding of what is important to you and to live your life in accordance with this.

Why nature?
Because in my experience it allows a deeper sense of reflection, it helps us to see things from a different perspective and allows us more distance from our everyday life and the problems, difficulties or the decisions that we are facing.  I have a private woodland that I use for one to one and group coaching and team away days. I also love to coach and walk and I have a few lovely locations that I use for this purpose.

If the outdoors isn't for you, I can also coach you via zoom.

Alongside one to one coaching I run regular coaching and nature workshops for women. These workshops help to build resilience and improve relationships through nature, they are held monthly.

I offer free consultations so we can decide if we are the right fit to work together. I look forward to hearing from you and working with you!

"Having had a summer of life coaching from Marie, I still can’t believe how powerful the practice is and how much it has changed my life. Without hesitation, I would recommend her as a brilliant coach. Initially, I contacted Marie unsure of what the end goal was. Following some tough personal challenges, I felt stuck in a negative thought process and was lacking in confidence. Very quickly, after only a few sessions, Marie helped me work through this and I emerged feeling much more positive and in control. I continued to meet Marie to explore other aspects of my life and career. I had a different dream to the reality I was living and through coaching, I was able to see that I needed to and could make the necessary changes. I’m now putting steps in place to follow my heart to a career I’ve wanted for so many years, something I never thought I would have the courage to do. The sessions are perfectly structured and Marie has such a calming influence - her ability to listen beyond the words is a rare skill. She is non-judgemental and supportive and she genuinely cares about her clients, making it so easy to open up and really get the most out of the time spent with her. I highly recommend the sessions in the woods - it’s a special place. I will always be so thankful to Marie for empowering me to make the changes to live a more fulfilled and meaningful life."
