About me

Fully qualified, accredited & experienced Personal Performance & Life Coach specialist & DISC personality profiling expert with over 25 years experience of people development, training, mentoring, facilitation and project implementation.

Fully insured and DBS enhanced check. Experience of working with young adults and teenagers. 

My areas of coaching expertise include career, life change, relationships and work-life balance. Hence the name of my coaching practice: Incredible Changes, as l specialise in helping people with change.

Examples of change in peoples' lives include career (including self employment and management), education,  divorce/separation, family and friend dynamics,  health,  moving house, plus many more areas of your work and personal life.

Other successful topics I coach and mentor in include bespoke partner relationship coaching (like Relate couple counselling).

I often work with businesses to provide business and leadership coaching. DISC personality profiling also used for recruitment,  team building and staff development.

From 2016 -end of 2018 I worked on a part-time, freelance basis as a supervisor, mentor and project co-ordinator with Citizens Advice Cornwall. This was on a pioneering coach training pilot scheme for Citizens Advice Cornwall ( National Lottery funded). It was supported by Cornwall Council, Truro & Penwith College and Coastline Housing. I worked with the CEO of Citizens Advice Cornwall and a Steering Group for the recruitment and  support of the training of the coaches for the project and with agencies that provided clients for the project.  I organised the allocation of clients to coaches, and used my coaching expertise to supervise and support the coaches with their clients.

I coach face-to-face, by Zoom, Skype or telephone.

I hold face-to-face coaching sessions in Exmouth, Exeter, Penzance &  Bristol. Please enquire about other areas in the South West.  I can travel to you!

As well as face-to-face I do convenient Zoom , Skype and telephone coaching. Zoom in particular is of a superb technical standard and provides a flawless coaching experience. (just like being in the same room!)

I run occasional workshops on personal development issues in East Devon on  work life balance , career, DISC Personality tests, avoiding procrastination. . Please enquire

Look at my Testimonials:
(See testimonials section of my website for more examples of my satisfied clients:

Please note, the initials of clients are only shown, due to the confidential nature of coaching.

'I had 5 sessions with Stacey , one of these was a Careers Values Test which gave me an excellent insight into my character. What was great was that the goal was always achieved from each session I had with Stacey. The momentum gained from these successful sessions accelerated the changes I wanted to make in the areas of my life I had chosen to focus on'.

MT – Weston Super Mare (by Skype)

'Stacey helped me to set several goals in connection with setting up my business, which helped me focus on what I needed to do. In particular, I completed my ‘e’ book, prepared materials for my Web Designer and successfully exhibited m business at a local London event.  These were big milestones for me, which I was able to achieve as a result of the coaching I had from Stacey'.

I found the Values Careers Test really enlightening.  Stacey was very professional and thorough  in her approach, so when she identified my top values I knew they were accurate. I have used my values to remind myself of the benefits I will gain from setting up my business and to understand why I never felt absolutely fulfilled working in a corporate environment.

DO – East London (by phone)

I was self-employed but feeling rather aimless, and was unsure of what move to make next.  I was unsure of what to expect from Life Coaching, but Stacey addressed this well.

Life coaching helped me to focus on what I am most successful at, as well as how my family commitments may influence my decisions,  Stacey is very good at listening, and helped me to find my way ahead with clarity.  Thank you Stacey!
