About me

I am passionate about coaching clients to get the life they want.

These are a few of the issues I can help you overcome:

  • life coaching
  • personal development
  • personal training (specialising in over-50s health and fitness)
  • weight loss and management
  • business coaching
  • career coaching
  • work/life balance
  • motivation
  • confidence building to become empowered
  • overcoming anxieties
  • eliminating phobias
  • smoking cessation therapy for cigarettes and E-cigarettes

If you would like to know more about how I can help you get the life you want, the first consultation at my office near York is free of charge. During this meeting, you can tell me the issue you have and we'll discuss a way forward, a strategy, to overcome this issue and enable you to move forward towards your goal. We will discuss and agree the number of sessions, duration and length of time between each session. Everything will be at a pace to suit you. One of my clients has said the help I have given her was "magic".

I use NLP techniques in many coaching sessions and the great benefit of this is that the issue or problem will usually be resolved in a few sessions. For example, a phobia cure usually takes only one session! So all you holiday makers who have booked a great holiday in an exotic location but have a phobia about snakes, then book a session now! Smoking Cessation Therapy for cigarettes AND E-cigarettes. Have you stopped smoking cigarettes with the help of E-cigarettes and find yourself smoking even more? Studies have shown one inhalation from an E-cigarette contains the same as one normal cigarette. Think about that, 40 inhalations is 40 cigarettes. So if you're determined to stop once and for all, contact me. My track record is a 100% success rate to-date!

I also offer Reiki with Crystals Healing and Animal Reiki Healing for your pets.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have completed the NLP Practitioners Course as well as a Life Coach Course.
I have completed CDP Coaching for Resilience and the Clean Language and the Power of Metaphors in Coaching.

During my time in business, I attended numerous training courses to enable me to develop my team in personal development, time management, making/achieving/exceeding their goals and how to cope with change in the workplace. I have recently joined a Resilience Coaching Training course so I can better help my clients how to be resilient and empower themselves with life's events.

As a manager, I have trained and coached a sales team to become one of the best in the business and have now changed career and adapted my motivational leadership into empowering confidence in my clients.

I obtained my degree at the University of Bradford with a BA (Hons) degree in Social Studies. As part of the degree I studied the theory and practise of counselling.

I am a Personal Trainer, Level 3 qualified which enables me to give advice on healthy living and weight management. I also offer personal training on a one to one basis with bespoke exercise programmes in sessions held in my studio. This compact gym is ideal for beginners to exercise, or the more mature clients, who want to learn in privacy not offered in large gyms and sports centres.

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.
