Yvonne Bullen: Breakthrough /Career/ Executive & Mindfulness Coaching
Welcome to my profile,
“You may never know what results come of your actions, but if you do nothing, there will be no results” Mahatma Gandhi
Personal and business coaching provides you with a unique opportunity to challenge your thinking, increase self-awareness, emotional intelligence and to collaboratively create a more fulfilling and enriching experience both in and out of the work environment to the benefit of both individual and organisation.
With this in mind I work to inspire, champion and expand awareness whilst developing clarity with a future paced dynamic emphasis on the specific areas of coaching required by the individual client.
As an ICF accredited coach with a renowned PGDip accredited psychotherapy training, I also bring over 25 years of corporate industry experience gained in the UK and overseas working for international corporate organisations within the retail, catering and wholesale FMCG sector and in financial services marketing.
My work draws on experience gained working in the culturally diverse private sector, townships and schools in South Africa alongside adults and children, both as a professional and a volunteer career, confidence and motivation coach and counsellor/psychotherapist.
Whilst working overseas I participated in mentoring small start-up enterprises and have also been directly involved in setting up and managing businesses both in the UK and overseas some involving international trade.
During the 12 years I spent in South Africa, my personal development, transformational journey towards greater self-awareness became the catalyst for beginning my work on a therapeutic and a professional coaching level.
Through my experience I have become a strong advocate for promoting that it isn’t how qualified, skilled or competent you appear to others or “look” on paper, that determines real authentic success, it is how you feel inside and how you use your inner power, your mind and thoughts to overcome the emotional blocks or mental barriers which can prevent you from getting ahead and feeling inspired to make positive changes to your life.
How I work
My way of working is compassionate yet dynamic, both therapeutic and goal orientated being focused on getting powerful results. I work consciously to raise self- awareness and authentic power using insightful, straight talking and collaborative coaching processes drawn from a creative blend of tools and inspiring ways to tap into your personal, employees and/or organisations potential.
Whether you are looking for personal, business, executive or blended psycho-therapeutic coaching, the process begins with a 90 minute personal scoping session designed to assess your current situation and think together about your desired goals and aspirations.
I tailor sessions and work creatively with what each person brings into the session and then align this to ensure we're working to fulfil your goals.
I offer packages designed to provide ongoing support and as such contact in between sessions via email, What's App or phone is part of the agreement.
Every programme is unique and personalised.

Why Choose Personal or Business Coaching?
Coaching has the power to create lasting change by challenging and shifting your perspective on life. It provides a framework offering practical tools and solutions, emotional development and support whilst facilitating the process of breaking down the blocks and barriers which prevent you from reaching your personal and professional goals.
With this in mind, I offer dynamic solution focused processes which help pave the way towards finding the fulfilment, direction and purpose in your personal and your professional life.
I recognise that coaching is about having someone alongside you with whom you have a good rapport, who is able to inspire, motivate and champion you to feel able to strive for the life you aspire to create.
Through my work as a psychotherapist, I have come to the understanding that the quality of the relationship and the rapport generated is one of the main conditions required for a successful coaching partnership.
Coaching works on the philosophy that change happens…whether you want it to or not. For many, the best kind of change is the change you drive when you decide to take control of your life and become the person you desire to be in terms of reaching your full potential and feeling fulfilled in all aspects of your life.
10 of the immediate advantages of working with a Personal or Business Coach
- To have an independent trusted colleague alongside you in a confidential professional capacity. A professional coach creates a safe space where the disclosure of sometimes sensitive and personal information can be shared and thought about without critical judgement, fear of repercussion or it being leaked to others outside the coaching framework.
- To increase self –awareness. Define who you are committed to being, question what drives your behaviour, how you perceive others and the world around you and the impact your thinking and feeling has on your life.
- To have a personal champion who celebrates your every move and offers a productive and creative space for you to challenge your thinking, evaluate your actions and also reflect on the emotional impact your decisions may have on your future.
- To have an objective sounding board. Someone who listens and adds value to your ideas, conflicts or emotional situations without ‘telling you’ what to do next.
- To generate a positive can do attitude. A coach can inspire and motivate you towards a new way of perceiving and being in the world.
- To kick-start or re-ignite or implement new ideas, create life plans and clarity over longer term vision.
- To create energy and momentum which prevents inertia and negative thinking getting in the way of progress.
- Discover what it is you are striving for.
- To maintain focus and make you accountable for your actions.
- To take responsibility for how your life turns out through a clear, planned process which provides a framework for you to achieve your desired outcomes.
There are countless reasons for seeking to work with a coach and the spectrum of the work can branch out in many directions depending on the starting point of the coaching focus and the individual’s unique personal challenges.

- Being 100% in control of your experience throughout the coaching process
During the Coaching programme I use a combination of deep enquiry, awareness creation and behavioural change tools and processes to access and elevate your thinking and feeling to a higher consciousness.
As the client you are taken on a deep inner journey of exploration to uncover and challenge hidden beliefs, values, behaviour patterns and habits. This is the foundation for creating Your Personal Success Formula.
It is these unconscious thought processes which prevent us from accessing our 'inner authenticity' and feeling more fulfilled with life. You will begin to experience more 'freedom of choice' and the ability to consciously create your life moment by moment.
Your innate energy (vibrational frequency) is raised and you begin to tap into a whole new way of being.
