Meriel Swain: Intuitive Coach and Guide
Hello, I'm Meriel. I'm an Intuitive Coach and Guide, and I want to help you live your purposeful life. You want something different, to make a change. It might be physical and/or behavioural, tangible and/or intangible. And it's a challenge to work it all through on your own.
I bring intuition, intelligence and heart.....and a little magic too. I use these gifts to weave some magic in your world and enable you to move towards your dreams, intentions and goals.
On the way, I will help you make connections between your feeling, thinking and acting so you can let go of old patterns which no longer serve you and welcome some new habits and a sense of purpose into your life.
Coaching is a transformative experience. It's like the ripple effect when you drop a stone into water. Life is the water and the stone changes it ripple after ripple after ripple.
Choosing the right coach for you is really important. A good coach will put you at your ease and create a trusting and safe relationship with you. In my experience, there's no substitute for a gut reaction so please take up my offer of a free and informal chat before we decide whether to continue working together.
Coaching is all about you. Listening and observing, asking insightful questions which will give you those lightbulb moments. Coaching removes the obstacles or blockers, the things which hold us back, so we can be propelled forward at greater speed, straight towards our life of choice.
Now you've read this far, maybe you'll take the next step and give me a shout?

Areas of coaching I deal with
Other areas of coaching I deal with
I'm a Systemic Coach and I also work in Clean Language and with Metaphor. I use my intuition and weave together the threads of your story, creating greater connection and understanding for you along the way.
I always meet new clients for a free and informal chat first. We'll find somewhere mutually convenient which offers some privacy and decent tea and coffee and allows us to explore what you want to achieve from the coaching.
I don't charge by the hour as I believe you are paying me to deliver results. If you are a business, then working on your site with you and your team on a day rate plus expenses is the norm. If you are an individual or small business owner, then I use sessions instead, and allow up to two hours a session. Sometimes we'll use all the time and sometimes we won't because you've had a breakthrough and it's a good point to close the session. My session rate begins at £125.
Please call me if you'd like to find out more.
You can also find me working as an Associate Coach at Motus Training near Stratford upon Avon (www.motustraining.co.uk). I can see clients at either location, whichever is the most convenient although right now I'm working exclusively online.
