About me

I am here to help you gain some clarity and direction in these challenging times.

Many of us are facing uncertainty in our employment or have even lost our jobs.

Some of us are feeling lonely and isolated and are fighting off depression.

The lockdowns are bringing us all back to ourselves and that can be uncomfortable, it forces us to ask ourselves questions; how am I living my life, do I want to carry on like this, what are my dreams, what is possible?

I can help you to identify your goals and help you make a roadmap to move towards them and ultimately achieve them and the life you want.

I trained as a coach with Relational Dynamics 1st to enhance and martial my natural abilities in helping people to discover and define their path in the world. I am a member of the Association of Coaching.

I have worked independently as a professional artist and teacher for over 30 years.

Working as an artist is a solitary pursuit so I am delighted to engage with people and enjoy helping them.

Working for myself I have negotiated the hiccups and challenges that have come along the way and have had to think outside the box and develop a different independent mindset.

I am able to bring this experience to my coaching.

I love to encourage people, to motivate and inspire.

The pleasure I’ve always had from helping someone to throw off their fear and dive into painting or drawing is just as powerful when I’m helping a client to live their best life or get past a block or make the change they so desperately want.

I genuinely believe everyone should have the opportunity to live their best life and feel fulfilled, contented and complete.

Testimonials

'I saw Stoney for 3 sessions at the end of last year. My big problem was procrastinating and being stressed and overwhelmed. My mind was a log jam of things to do, and nothing was getting done! It was horrible, stressful and totally demoralising. Stoney listened, and listened and listened in her beautiful cosy studio and guided me to recognise my priorities and choose just a few things to get done in-between sessions. And I got them done! I can’t put my finger on what the magic was, but it worked. Stoney is a lovely presence to be around. She is very understanding and empathetic with an innate ability to get to the heart of the problem and help you sort yourself out.'
'Working with Stoney was an inspiration. She really listens and understands the most complex and ‘stuck’ situations. She is empathetic and constructive. I can’t recommend her coaching skills highly enough. Thanks Stoney.' Carole

'I recently saw Stoney for some Life Coaching sessions.Stoney really listened and heard me. I found her very understanding and empathetic, this enabled me to dig deeper and I gained new insights. She helped me to focus and reinforced a positive attitude. Her encouragement assisted me in making changes in my thinking and lifestyle, enabling me to move forward.' Eli

My coaching with Stoney have been very constructive and supportive. Through the one to one sessions she has given me the ability to clarify and focus on what I really want and to create manageable goals but also not to stop dreaming big! She has encouraged me to acknowledge any barriers and to challenge my mindset which has previously held back change. I feel the supportive nature of these sessions will make a big difference in me achieving my ultimate goal. Sarah

I worked with Stoney through the She Leads Change programme. We worked together to identify achievable career goals and how to find creativity in the everyday. Stoney was very patient and nurturing and created a safe space for personal exploration and discovery. Helen

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.
