About me

Hi, I'm Vikki.

I coach people through the stresses, confusion and obstacles that life throws at us...and there can be a lot of those!  'Whether it is changing careers, feeling stuck in a rut, or on the verge of burnout, I use transformational coaching to help clients get more clarity and move forward with confidence.  I sound superhuman but as well as a life coach, I am a mum and like most parents, I spin multiple plates all the time which can be stressful and exhausting. I understand the battles (internally and externally) we face daily and through my coaching qualification I experienced the power of coaching and all the tools and methods that we can adopt to help us all.  Coaching enabled me to understand more about myself, how to navigate obstacles and more importantly, how to make the changes I wanted to make. I am passionate about helping other parents in this same way and I offer 1:1 coaching as well running my own courses.

Just before I became a life coach I spent 10 years in a Diversity and Inclusion Management role which allowed me to work with a large number of different people in various communities. I value inclusivity and supporting others and this is reflected in my practice and prices.  

I offer coaching to everyone (particularly parents) who need help to

  • Discover their inspiration and motivation
  • Find clarity on clouded thoughts and feelings
  • Look at challenging and changing patterns of negative thought patterns and behaviours
  • Make positive changes 
  • Set structured goals and priorities​
  • Avoid burnout

I pride myself on making others comfortable and welcome and having a safe space to explore. Plus, everyone all deserve some 'me' time, and I can help offer that too.
