I am a life coach and wellbeing trainer based in the East of Fife in Scotland. I love helping people to flourish and grow, and to feel calmer, happier and healthier.
I am an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) and I love supporting, motivating and challenging people to develop and grow through my 1-2-1 coaching. My coaching generally comprises 6 sessions with the aim of you being able to self-coach by the end of the sessions.
I also offer an online self-directed course called "Positive Paths to Wellbeing" that supports you on a journey of self-discovery and empowers you with the life skills you need for permanent change. This course can be combined with 1-2-1 coaching sessions, ensures you start making changes straight away, whilst in a supportive, friendly and relaxed atmosphere. I love helping people feel less stressed, stronger, healthier and more in control of life.
Training, qualifications & experience
I originally worked as a secondary school teacher followed by over 16 years in the NHS in staff development and training. In 2017 I trained as a coach, adding a qualification in team coaching in 2018. I run workshops on wellbeing both in-person and online, and team programmes that help teams to flourish. I also have certificates in mediation, nutrition and exercise for older adults and I have trained in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I am an Associate Certified Coach (ACC).
Since 2018 I have run my own wellbeing consultancy, specialising in evidence-based information for health and wellbeing. I help people through 1-2-1 coaching and training.
Areas of coaching I deal with
From £65.00 to £489.00
Free initial online session
I charge £65 per hour for coaching over Zoom/Teams. But I do believe that coaching should be for everyone so I do have some reduced cost places for people whose circumstances mean they cannot afford this cost.
The online course Positive Paths to Wellbeing is £129. A combined package of 6.5 hours of coaching plus the online course is £489, which gives a discount on the course price.
Flexible working hours
I offer a 20-30 minute free, no-obligation video call so that you can find out if I am the right coach for you. I want all my clients to be confident they can get the best experience, so I offer refunds and am flexible with changes to appointments.
Marie has been a wonderful coach for me. She is so pleasant to talk to. I feel very happy and motivated every time after our sessions. She helped to see myself in a more positive way. This has greatly boosted my confidence in my work. She is very good at asking questions and helping me see things differently. This has significantly broaden my views, which I have never thought about before. Not only giving me lots of great suggestions, but also she teaches me how to coach myself in the future. It has been a wonderful journey for me and I can see a more positive, confident self now. Huge thanks to Marie! - Juan
I have benefitted greatly from my recent coaching with Marie Paterson. Marie is a warm and encouraging coach and a sensitive and sympathetic listener. She takes a holistic approach including wellbeing and relationships within and outside of work. Marie has helped me to interrogate and understand what I was finding difficult and she has supported me to find constructive ways forward, including a range of very manageable, practical actions. As a result of the six sessions with Marie and some work in between I have developed much more self awareness and the confidence to manage my workload and work-life balance. I am enjoying my work more as a result and also my time away from work. Thank you Marie! - Jo
Coaching from Marie has been the most beneficial experience to help my personal and professional development that I have ever been involved in. I can't recommend Marie highly enough. Reading back my goals from my first session I can't believe how much I have achieved along with so many other benefits that I will take forward in my daily life. - Karen
