Women's Health and Wellbeing Transformational Coach

About me

Hi, I'm Rowena,

I help busy midlife women like you to rediscover your confidence, wellbeing, and energy, so that you can reignite your life & career. Coaching with me focuses on self-kindness, and creating easily adapted and sustainable healthy, healing habits.

I specialise in:

  • Building Confidence
  • Burnt out
  • Stress and Anxiety
  • Rediscovering energy and focus
  • Midlife career change and transition

Midlife is a time for change on so many levels and often as a woman you're left feeling like you don’t have enough hours in each day. You're feeling tired of being tired, finding it hard to relax and recharge, and just don’t feel like yourself anymore. Frustratingly this often comes just as you've reached the peak of your career and the demands of family life!

Can you relate? 

If so, I’ll help you to recognise why you're feeling so tired and what to do about it. Burnout, menopause, chronic ill health, a busy career and burgeoning family responsibilities all play a part in impacting midlife health and wellbeing. I'm here to help so that you can regain your calm, and be able to focus on living a joyful, confident and energised life.

Coaching with me focuses on self-kindness and learning to love you, creating easily adapted healthy habits and routines to last a lifetime.

You’ll no longer will you feel like you’re missing out! You’ll be able to plan for and live the life that you want. So, whether it’s that road trip around Europe, learning a new skill or having the fantastic career you dream of, you’ll have the energy, focus, passion and strength to do it.

Positive outcomes from coaching:

  • Rediscover your confidence, energy and focus.
  • Find ways to get the support you need and reduce anxiety and stress.
  • Fall back in love with your career (or find a new one)
  • Find your motivation and sense of belonging
  • Feel in control, connected and engaged.

Using a combination of transformational coaching and science based ‘wearable tech’ I'll work with you to help you to visualise where you are and where you want to be, and create healing habits to break free of burnout and re-ignite your life and your career.

Training, qualifications & experience


I'm not just a coach.....

I'm a woman, a mentor, advocate, wife and business founder who believes that great confidence and energy come from within ourselves, and that positive health and wellbeing is the foundation on which you can build an amazing life that's right for you.

I originally trained as a nurse working primarily in heart health and cancer care before making a move into workplace and corporate health and well-being where I stayed for over 15 years gaining experience in aviation, investment banking and the automotive industry.

It was so enjoyable being part of and leading a team enabling people to have a fulfilling life at work and at home, helping them to understand and implement the life and career changes that they needed and wanted to make.

As a coach I find it really rewarding helping people to 'get back on track', helping people like you to:

  • Return to work after ill health
  • Rediscover energy and focus and recover from burnout
  • Reduce anxiety and stress and build confidence
  • Help with career change or redefining what you do already, particularly  if a health concern means that you can't or don't want to continue in your current role.

My own journey....

Following a serious injury to my back I could no longer work in the way that I enjoyed so much, so I chose to build on the skills that I have and re-train as a transformational coach,  a massive career transition!

People and their stories are what inspire me to help them and my own change of direction has given me the ability to have a flexible way of working that suits my clients and me, and allows me to work 1-2-1 with people who are committed to making positive change in their lives.

Other areas of coaching I deal with

Life Coaching/Career Coaching

Are you facing or considering a career change or a big life change? Are you thinking ‘is this it’ and need to change?

Whether it’s redundancy, career change or taking the leap into something entirely different I can help you to rediscover your purpose, passion and confidence to make that change successfully.

Wellbeing and Health Coaching

Everyone at some point in their life will find that their health and wellbeing takes a dip. But what about when it's more than a dip? Living with a long term health condition can be life changing, but you can still enjoy your life! With over 25 years of health and wellbeing experience I can help you to put in place healing habits to help you live your life well such as:

  • Manage a long term health condition so that you can enjoy your daily walk, go on that wild swimming holiday or smash that promotion opportunity.
  • Manage anxiety, fatigue and the personal disruption that can come with menopause so that you can continue to enjoy your life and career and make the changes that you want, rather than being forced to make unwanted career or life change because of menopause
  • Returning to work with clarity and confidence following ill health.
