There are significant moments in our lives when we are jolted out of our comfort zone by the loss of a dear friend, a partner, a job, our health, our youth, our hopes and ambitions....We become aware that nothing in life is permanent, everything changes and that our lives pass in a flash. Time is so precious.
We pause, reflect and do a stocktake of our life. We ask ourselves are we really living life to the full?
If you are feeling stuck, low, or depressed with your life just now then coaching with me could really help. I work with clients in hourly sessions. Within these I provide you with a safe, confidential and creative space within which you can find your own truth and wisdom. You will come to know how you want to live your very best possible life and how to achieve this.
To get a fuller sense of my coaching style and approach please look under further information to read what my clients say about me.
If you are curious to find out more and perhaps to set out on this adventure with me then contact me for a free, no obligation chat to talk over how my coaching can bring new and exciting possibilities into your life. This will gives us the opportunity to find out more about each other before we commit.
I offer flexible and bespoke coaching packages to fit your individual needs and work with a sliding scale of fees.
I see clients face to face in Edinburgh and the Lothians and offer virtual coaching via Zoom, Skype or telephone for those further afield. Please contact me here or call me on 07966 073077. I look forward to hearing from you.

Currently, alongside my work with coaching clients, I provide wellness coaching support to the staff of 2 large charities and mentoring and supervision to other life coaches.
My 17 years of coaching is underpinned and enriched by many years working as a social worker, then counsellor and then as a senior executive in the voluntary sector and by my life experience of 73years!
I am a 73 year old widow with 3 grown up sons - 2 on the other side of the world and one close to home. In my leisure time I enjoy getting out into nature with my walking and gardening. Time on rainy days are spent cooking and reading. Most importantly time spent with my family, friends and the remarkable people I coach gives my life meaning and joy.

What Clients say about my coaching :
Zoe is a wonderful coach. She is extremely supportive and insightful. I particularly appreciate her relaxed, calming and gentle presence, balanced skilfully with supportive challenge. She is at all times highly professional, responsive and reliable and combines this with great warmth, compassion and humanity. I always come away from sessions feeling clearer, more grounded and alive. I'd highly recommend her services for both professional and personal growth.
