About me

I am a Lifestyle (Transformational) Coach   I coach people like you who are aged 40 and over, want to re-connect with themselves and change the way they live the next chapter of their lives. Who want to live the life they were meant to live and who are now in a position to do that, but don’t quite know what that would look like or how to go about it. I believe midlife is a new beginning and NOT the beginning of the end and it is my mission to help people like you who might be confused and unsure of how to navigate your way through this transition, who may feel called to something different but don't know where to start, or who think it's too late to be the change you want to see in your life.

I can help you to:

  • Explore the options that are open to you
  • Select the options that are best for you
  • Identify the beliefs that stop you achieving your outcomes so you can transform those beliefs to support positive outcomes
  • Increase your confidence in your ability to successfully change you outlook and your behaviours
  • Develop goals, actions and milestones to move you towards creating successful outcomes

My particular skill is that I am able to get to the heart of an issue very quickly and as a result, people who work with me get a coaching journey that is specific to them which means they will get far better results than they would if they tried to navigate this transition on their own.


When I first started working with Taiwo I had a major block that held me back from my creative energy, or a source energy. I felt shame and guilt and it kept me trapped in an unhappy place. Taiwo found a way to tap into that area and literally said the right words at the right moment, which even she herself felt a bit strange about for an instant but she let herself guide so trustfully through the process, did, what was required in that moment and the block disappeared.

We only had 4 sessions over a period of 4 weeks and I took all the tools Taiwo offered me and put them into practice as much as I could and I felt changes happening from week to week. Taiwo has an amazing toolbox she can work with and her intuition and trust in the process are stunning. I normally tend to jump around like a chased rabbit when someone wants to get me to a certain point where something within me doesn´t want to look at. And Taiwo was not only persistent and incredibly patient but she also had this sense of what was needed in the moment and gave me wonderful tools that I can work with in the future and literally changed completely how I look at myself and relationships. Taiwo also had seen the bigger picture right from the start but she let me explore all the way through by myself only giving me hints and great tools to help me find the way, trusting that I would get there in the end. Thank you so much Taiwo for your guidance and your trust and I absolutely want to continue working with you in the future.

Taiwo helped me revisit my Life Purpose, bringing it into line with the work I am currently doing, 5 years since i worked on it last. It was a pleasure to work with Taiwo. She has a natural ability to navigate the bigger picture, helping people to attune to their own vision in a way that is authentic. This stood out for me. What I appreciated was her commitment to ensuring that each part of the process had meaning. The session felt very relaxed.  I gained a new insight about a significant shift I have made over the past five years and integrated this awareness into the life purpose work.

As a result, I now have a clearer expression of my Life Purpose. It is important to me as it forms the basis of everything that i do and all my work issues out of this place within me, so having a clear articulation of it is something that i will be benefitting from  for a long time - until I choose to revisit it.

Thank you Taiwo- and - if anyone is considering hiring Taiwo to work on their life purpose - I recommend wholly recommend her.

Taiwo has been a blessing and a fantastic coach - her ability to truly listen and reflect back has helped me clarify and stay focused on my true goals and dreams. She brought a thoughtful, non-judgemental approach but still held me to account for all that I want to achieve. I always came out of our meetings feeling more energised, optimistic and clear about what I needed to do. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending her- and neither will you!"

I was coached by Taiwo earlier this year and clarity came to me on issues of going forward in my life. Even though I help others find clarity and purpose, I was at a place life had just dealt me some curves and I was unsure of what steps to take. She helped me regain focus and now my life is on the trajectory of success.

Taiwo is very professional and a true heart centred coach.

I have a Diploma in Transformational Coaching from Animas Centre for Coaching. I am a Blair Singer certified Coach and Facilitator in Personal Development. (Blair Singer is a well- known trainer in the personal development field. He is also one of the Rich Dad advisors to Robert Kyosaki, author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad.) I am licensed to coach Blair's Little Voice Accountability Programme. A methodology that will allow you to achieve all your goals at any time.

I bring over 20 years of creating strategic policies and managing large projects. I managed several teams and bring all that experience into my coaching both in my ability to deal with a specific issue while keeping an eye on the bigger picture, and in supporting an individual through their career progression. 

I started my career as an actress then moved into mental where I obtained a Diploma in Drama Therapy and ran support groups for the drop-in clients and confidence building workshops for women in danger of hospitalisation through mental health issues.

Today I am the founder and CEO of The New 5ifty, a company that focuses on enabling people, aged 40 and over, to make choices about how they wish to live the next chapter in their lives. Over the years, I have managed and coached dozens of people to overcome barriers to achieving their career and life goals.

Further information

The aim of coaching is to provide a space where your development and goals are the main aim.  Once the outcomes are decided we will embark on a process  where I use deep listening and powerful questions aimed at helping you connect with your challenges and any blocks to you achieving the outcomes you are seeking.

I am a coach that works very instinctually. It is often the case that the presenting challenge is not the real issue so during the coaching sessions I will pay attention to what you say and how you say it; the language you use and your physical demeanour. Over the sessions I will also note any dissonance between your words and your actions. These will help me to ensure we are addressing the issues beneath the challenges you are presenting with.

My role as your coach is to help you identify any limiting beliefs and facilitate you in reframing them in a way that empowers rather than hinders you.  At the end of each session we will identify actions that can help you move forward and you will be equipped with tools to help you make immediate changes that will lead to you living a more empowered life.
