About me

“Imagine your very being, as your own home. The house you can picture in your mind’s eye is who you are. The house structure may be solid, it may need a lick of paint, or may need extensive structural renovation to ensure the foundations are solid. Parts of it may need to be completely remodelled” 

This quote is part of Ruth’s coaching manifesto. Her mission as your coach is to support you to unpack the parts you feel are important and to support you to revamp, remodel, or rebuild. There are lots of reasons why you might be feeling stuck for example, low self-esteem, lack of confidence, or just simply needing some personal development - do know that coaching could be the key to unlocking your dream home.

  • Get clear on why you are stuck, where do you want to be and know how you will get there
  • Build your own practical tools and strategies to boost your mental wellbeing, resilience, motivation and energy
  • Step into a safe place to explore how feelings, emotions and behaviours are blocking you from thriving

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a life coach's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the life coach to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
