About me

" Rebekah is an incredible coach and working with her has been nothing short of amazing. She provides a safe and nurturing space to be yourself in and she gently encourages you to go to those places that are uncomfortable but that get you closer to your true self. Each session with Rebekah has been very rewarding and valuable to my personal development, I wouldn't be where I am today without her support." - MD

Hi! I'm Rebekah, a professional coach and psychology-trained wellbeing practitioner with over 20 years experience working in the field of mental health. 

I have a warm, understanding and empathetic nature. I provide a safe coaching space for you to feel fully supported during our time together.

I use a unique approach to inner healing and growth by integrating modern coaching techniques with positive psychology, neuroscience and transactional analysis.

I believe you are the expert of you; I walk alongside you on this transformative journey—holding space for you to speak more openly than you ever have, hear your thoughts and beliefs spoken out loud to evoke greater awareness of who you really are.

I'm based in Hebden Bridge. I offer 3-6 month online 1:1 coaching packages. In person sessions in Hebden Bridge will be available from September onwards.

My clients report significant improvements in mood and also in other areas of their lives. Here are just a few:

  • Clarity around career/ relationships/health
  • Greater self-confidence
  • Deeper self-love
  • More fulfilling relationships
  • Clearer communication and boundaries
  • Connection to purpose
  • Improved performance at work
  • Increased happiness
  • Better sleep
  • Good work-life balance

"Before I found Rebekah I was feeling incredibly sad and stuck with a lack of clarity and direction. I spent a lot of time procrastinating and putting off decisions about my future. I was settling for a life that I had been unhappy with for a long time but I didn't have the tools or motivation to change. Fast forward just a few months and with Rebekah's support I am back in the driving seat of my life and taking steps to make big changes. I have reconnected with my true self and the future is looking much more exciting!" - HS

What were you struggling with at the start of the coaching programme ?

I was feeling incredibly stuck with a lack of clarity and direction. I was spending a lot of time procrastinating in my work and putting off any decision which had the potential to affect my future. Looking back I was completely disconnected with myself and what I wanted. I was settling for a life that I had been unhappy with for a long time but I didn't have the tools or motivation to make changes.

How have things changed ?

I have had a lot of breakthroughs in terms of next steps and what I want my life to look like over the next year/five/ten years. I feel more connected to my authentic self and I am learning to make decisions from this place. I feel more productive and like I'm back in the driving seat of my life rather than watching it pass me by.

What did you find helpful about the coaching process ?

The process felt like a mirror was being held up to me allowing me to see things much more clearly. I was able to recognise patterns that were coming up and make decisions more objectively. It opened up areas of my life I didn't even realise needed addressing. It gave me a safe space to explore my feelings and think out loud knowing I wouldn't be judged. I was guided to every decision rather than feeling like I was being told what to do or led in a certain direction.

What did you find difficult about the coaching process?

As someone who finds it hard to open up and be vulnerable, I found it hard at first to dig deep into how I was really feeling and express it out loud. I had no experience of speaking to someone before which was daunting but you soon put me completely at ease.

What specific changes have you experienced because of our work together?

I am going on to continue my studies which is something I would have probably never considered before I had clarity from coaching. I am also looking at a change of location which is something that I have needed for a while but I have felt stuck. My freelance work is also growing rapidly which I'm sure is a result of a more clear and confident mindset and the actions I've been taking in this work. I feel more sure of myself and confident in every decision I am making.
