About me

Hello, I'm Vicky.  I am a Personal and Professional Development Coach, based near the sea in Essex. Since 2009 I have been supporting clients with my compassionate, whole person approach. Enabling them to move through work, life & human challenges into happier, healthier and more empowered versions of themselves. Typically my clients:

  • Are ambitious and motivated to achieve more in their career or business.
  • Have a sense that there is "potential" within them that they would like to explore.
  • Are willing to make some changes in their behaviour and mindset.
  • Are ready to engage in a supportive relationship to help them clarify and fulfil these aims.

And also usually can identify with one (or more) of the below:

  • Feeling at least a little bit overstretched (whether that is with life, work, or both).
  • Feeling a bit under-fulfilled in one or more areas (work, relationships, health, personal growth, financially).
  • Aware that they are repeating patterns of behaviour or results - despite their best intentions.
  • Conscious that they don't want to let self-sabotage, procrastination or organisation stand in their way.
  • And perhaps, can see that they would really benefit from having "space held" for them to talk and work through the various challenges and concerns of their lives.

Does any of the above sound like you?

How I work

I have a variety of coaching, therapeutic and training skills in my toolbox, that I can draw from when working with you.  Whether you are after strategy, accountability and a sounding board for your professional life, or want to go deeper and explore and heal core beliefs and behaviours that limit you, I am happy to provide that support.  

I am very gentle in my approach and understand that you are a whole-person with multiple elements that influence and affect your life and behaviour.  There is no judgement or blaming/shaming in the way I work.  I believe that the best results come from people who have healthy self esteem, so I would never do anything that is contraindicated to supporting that.  If you are after a drill sergeant major, sorry, that's not me!

I work with the whole person, rather than just setting you goals to achieve or fail against. We look at the bigger picture, find out what makes you tick, what your inner conflicts are and how they are trying to help you.  I then help you to ground into your true sense of self, release your conditioning and find your way forward.  This involves gentle and compassionate inner work, for those who are open to it, as well as practical steps to take as "homework" between each appointment.

What are the logistics?

We always start with an exploratory call, at no cost to you, to make sure we are a good fit before we get started. I usually do this by phone or Zoom. 

I work from my home in Hadleigh, Essex or via Zoom. I also go into local businesses for group sessions.  My 121 appointments are 1 hour long (or longer by mutual agreement when required).  I don't insist on a minimum number of sessions, you can pay as you go.  However, I do encourage it, as it is hugely beneficial to make that commitment to yourself, and as such there is a discount on the hourly rate for those wishing to commit upfront to 6 sessions.

A bit more about me

I am a Mum to a young daughter, love the sea, board sports, nature, looking after our planet & my own health, dancing to house music, yoga, spiritual conversations, house plants, gentle parenting and stuff like that.  I am more than happy for any of these topics to be brought into our work together (although I wouldn't take any advice from me on house plants!)

I'd love to know more about you

  • What has brought you to look for a coach? 
  • What would be the most valuable thing you can imagine getting out of a coaching relationship?
  • What in particular about my profile jumped out as "you"?

The next step is to get in touch, so we can arrange a good time for your discovery call.
