About me

Do you have a desire for change? You might not know what you want to change, and that's okay. Or maybe you do know what you want to change, but obstacles get in the way!

Coaching with me can help you become unstuck and move forward to your goals. Because making change is uncomfortable, it takes us out of our comfort zone, brings uncertainty and can trigger hidden anxieties and fears. This can hold us back, paralysing us and keeping us stuck. Which is where coaching comes in.

What issues have I helped?

Areas that I specialise in include:

  • Overcoming procrastination and fear of failure
  • Increasing confidence and self belief
  • Developing more credibility at work and developing your personal brand
  • Overcoming imposter syndrome
  • Dealing with high-functioning anxiety
  • Discovering personal values, and learning to live by them
  • Changing job or career to something more fulfilling
  • Facing a challenging situation that is causing stress or anxiety
  • Balancing performance and wellbeing

My coaching style

I combine traditional goal-focused coaching with mindset coaching, as this is what I find is most effective for my clients. My style is to listen and learn about you, and then plan a programme tailored for you.

Mindset coaching: My work with clients often involves increasing awareness of thoughts and beliefs. By learning to challenge unhelpful beliefs and thoughts, you'll find it easier to move towards making important changes in your life.  

Goal-focused coaching: Together we'll work to identify your goals and desires, we'll discover your values and strengths, and find out what's holding you back from moving forward. We'll agree actions for you to carry out between sessions, giving you accountability and a clear path ahead.

About me

I started my career working as an Assistant Private Secretary for Government Ministers in Westminster, before moving into PR and Marketing, working in television and radio. But I had an itch to be an entrepreneur and that took me on a journey to set up a business, growing it into a large award-winning tourism company.  

I went on to win the East of England Businesswoman of the Year Award, and to mentor other businesswomen. 

Now I share the tools that helped me, coaching people from all walks of life to achieve success, so that they can feel happier and more fulfilled.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a member of the Association for Coaching and trained at the Centre for Coaching in London.

I specialise in the following areas, because I find them most effective for my clients:

  • Cognitive Behavioural Coaching
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) Coaching
  • Mindfulness Coaching
  • Self-Compassion Coaching

My qualifications include:

Certificate in Coaching

Primary Certificate in Performance Coaching

I have regular Coaching supervision and continue to develop my skills and knowledge.

I have many years experience as an entrepreneur and business leader, founding a start up company in 2006 and growing this into a highly successful and respected award-winning Suffolk business. During that time I ran it with my husband and this brings a unique perspective to my business coaching.

I won the 'East of England Businesswoman Entrepreneur of the Year' in 2011-12 and am a motivational speaker at business events. I have been a Board Member of Suffolk Businesswomen, Chairman of my local business association, and I am passionate about providing opportunities and support for women in business.

I am a Mentor for the Prince’s Trust, mentoring young people who are starting up their own businesses.

I also have an interest in health and wellbeing.  I enjoy running and cycling, eating healthily, and looking after the mind-body connection.

Additional information

I offer a free, no obligation discovery video call.  This is so that we can both see if coaching is the right path for you and will deliver the results you want.

Sessions usually take place on Zoom. This gives you the freedom to be at home somewhere quiet with a cup of tea, or, if you are at work, to find a quiet meeting room where you won't be disturbed. It also means you have no travel time, so you can more easily fit it into your day!

I recommend a package of four to eight sessions, once a fortnight, but can be flexible if you have different needs.  You can book a discovery call online from my page here.

Further information


“Naomi is a life coach who does more than just “talk”. She listens, inspires and mobilises her clients into action in a somehow gentle yet incredibly powerful way.” VA

"I’d managed to get myself stuck in a rut, through coaching sessions with Naomi I’ve managed to increase my confidence in my decision making again. Naomi is an extremely good listener and with the combination of this and her suggestions I’ve managed to recalibrate my thoughts and worries and move forward. I’d highly recommend using Naomi." E.N.

"Naomi is understanding, kind and patient. She had many suggestions on how to improve my situation. Fully recommended." M.K.

"Sessions with Naomi increased my confidence and were invaluable in helping to prep for meetings on contentious subjects in a safe and fun environment!" S.S.

“I was incredibly nervous before my session, knowing I would have to speak and go deep into my dreams (which can sometimes feel uncomfortable “thinking big”). Naomi instantly put me at ease, and I quickly realised that what seemed like unrealistic and daring goals are actually absolutely possible. Naomi is practical, and this fused with thinking big brings the “hows”, “whens” and “whys”.

“Naomi’s practical approach along with the homework has brought me much closer to implement action steps for my dreams and goals. She also helped me sift through the confusion of ideas and possibilities that, although possible, had been slowing me down and holding me back from achieving the big stuff.

“Naomi doesn’t beat around the bush. She listens. Whilst she doesn’t make decisions for you; she helps you navigate the jumble and confusion and march straight on with what does serve you. Naomi is inspiring and will set off a spark within you to move forward in a very realistic and practical way.” VA

"I had the pleasure of working with Naomi Tarry via the Suffolk Chamber of Commerce when she was introduced to me as a business mentor. It was so good to have a confidante, a successful entrepreneur, who made me feel completely at ease. I could discuss a variety of business objectives and ideas, which I hadn’t had a chance to implement. However, I found, being able to talk these through with someone with extensive business expertise, enabled me to expand my ideas, prioritise the most important areas for business growth and therefore reach certain goals. Thanks to Naomi, her mentoring skills have helped me take my business to the next level." S.W.

“Naomi is a compassionate, intuitive and inspirational coach who through her thought provoking targeted questions and vast life experience has helped me to clarify my thoughts on my career transition and find practical steps to move me towards my goals, dreams and life purpose. Her personal experience from so many industries, like business and media, makes her also a caring and strategic mentor. Naomi is an incredibly talented, natural coach that helps you bring your vision to life - and I cannot recommend her enough.” VA
