Other areas of coaching I deal with

Phoenix Life and Wellbeing Coaching
Helping you become the best version of yourself

Mentally - Physically - Emotionally

Phoenix Coaching is both solution and action-focused.

We will work together to identify what you want to achieve, what has held you back from achieving it until now, and then work together to achieve your goals.

I will support and guide as you reflect and evaluate, make decisions and begin your journey.

You will remove the thoughts and behaviours that hold you back and feel empowered to be the best version of you..

Life can be overwhelming.

By working together you will learn the tools and skills to thrive and not just survive.

"Thank you for your support.  You have been amazing,    I had totally lost faith in myself, thank you for your unwavering support and helping me understand  what I wanted and how to achieve it"
Jo - Client

'Within you is the power to rise above  any situation  or struggle, and transform into the brightest, strongest version of  you  ever!'

Further information

I am a parent of a 21-year-old and have worked through the challenges of being a working, single parent.  The juggling of priorities, time management and the common parenting challenges of raising a happy and fulfilled young person.

For 2 years, I was a competitive strongwoman, and find that sports psychology and mindset is one that often transfers into day to day life.

My aim is to make Coaching inclusive, and accessible to as many people as possible. I am therefore flexible in my approach and welcome any suggestions that may help make coaching work for you.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Life Coach's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Life Coach to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

I provide services online and in person. Services are adaptable, please let me know if I can make any adjustments to support you.
