About us

Hi! I'm Sue.  I am a Life Coach, a Master Practitioner of Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP), and a Youth Mental Health First Aid Instructor.  I work with clients (adults and teenagers) who want change and forward action in their personal or professional lives. All you need is a willingness to learn new ways of being; with yourself,  your thoughts and others.

Modern living is fast, challenging and constantly changing. It can also be a source of a lot of the stress we feel in our day-to-day lives. Whether you have an issue you want to overcome, or a goal in your sights, or if you feel a bit lost and unsure of your next steps in any area of your life, NLP based Life Coaching can help you get from where you are, to where you want to be, even if you don't have a clear destination, or a map!

Working with a Master Practitioner who is unbiased and unconnected to other areas of your life, in a safe, non - judgemental space gives you greater insight on the aspects of yourself you don't understand, yet.

Lets work together to:

  • Let go of fear, anger, hurt, sadness and guilt
  • Manage anxiety
  • Put procrastination in the past
  • Overcome that inner critic
  • Consistently set goals you achieve
  • Develop new skills and helpful behaviours
  • Feel motivated and in control of your life
  • Have better relationships personally or professionally
  • Create the happy, fulfilled life you want

I also offer teenage coaching:

Being a young person in the 21st century is tough. It is a million miles away from what it used to be. These days young people have to deal with a unique set of pressures that adults of my age and above never used to experience. For a start, the advent of social media means that there is an ever present pressure to look a certain way, have the right things and generally live the perfect life with the perfect people all the time. There is no switching off.

If you missed GCSE's / A levels during the pandemic you may be experiencing loneliness and with the competition for university places as well as challenging job and housing markets, you may feel loss of direction and a sense of fear about the future. And all of this is on top of the "normal" pressures of adolescence including; chemical changes in your brain, going through puberty, developing sense of identity and the pressures of "fitting in", significant periods of change and transition, as well as the pressures of exams.

Youth coaching is designed to support you if you:

  • are between the ages of 13-17years
  • want to talk in a safe and confidential space, with a coach who is unbiased and unconnected to the rest of their world

It is a great way to support you to:​

  • feel better, happier and more "yourself"
  • discuss worries doubts and concerns you may have
  • develop your confidence and communication skills
  • help you manage stress
  • set and achieving goals
  • tackle time management and personal organisation
  • support you with the unique pressures young people face e.g., exams, relationships, developing their sense of identity and accepting yourself
    discuss your mental health including; depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts and psychosis, self-harm and eating disorders*
  • manage transition e.g., into high school, or thinking about future career option 

*Please note: as a Youth Mental Health First Aid Instructor I can spot signs and symptoms of common mental health conditions and offer safe, appropriate conversation as well as signposting to appropriate UK support if necessary, I am not qualified to diagnose or treat a mental health condition.
