I am an experienced Life Design Coach working in Bridgwater Somerset. When you seek a Life Coach I think its important to choose someone who is able to provide evidence that working with a coach has brought lasting change to their clients' lives.
I can provide you with video evidence from satisfied clients of mine.

I realise that I am good at helping people bring structures to their life; I find I am able to notice where the growing point is in someones life and how to expand this I can help create a new life design. The process I use is to be able to find a way to bring a framework to transform peoples' issues by making an intuitive leap which connects different aspects of their lives together.
I love seeing how, if we succeed in changing something internally, we then start to see the creation of the external change.
I help people to become more resilient and yet open in the future filled with uncertainty and unpredictability in the world.
My clients come with different challenges; some want to start a new relationship or career. Some want to achieve a weight-loss goal or perhaps start their own business but lack the confidence to make the life change.
I offer Life Coaching to individuals and organisations. Individual Life Coaching is available face to face via my clinic in Bridgwater, Somerset. At the moment an increase in self confidence is what many people want help with. Life Coaching can help you with self belief, stress, relationship issues and self confidence. I have recently become more involved in helping people who are facing redundancies and how to think about their future career.
Life Coaching helps you determine and achieve personal goals. It enables you to make decisions, grow and develop as an individual. Life Coaching will help you to move forwards in the direction you want at the pace, which feels right for you.
I use a creative enquiry model called Life Design you can read more about this here: http://www.newleaf.uk.com/life-design-model/

Life Coaching Testimonials
Has the intervention of Life Coaching made any impact on your working life?
"The intervention of Life Coaching has made a significant impact on my working life in a very positive way. Becky has been instrumental in posing the right questions that have challenged my perceptions about my abilities. In turn this has helped me to realise that I haven't yet tapped my full potential in my current role. This has fuelled me to review some of my working practices in order to make more of an impact."
Would you recommend to another colleague and why?
"I would certainly recommend Life Coaching to another colleague because the sessions are about you, what you want and how to go about achieving you goals. It's also a way to take a closer look at limiting habits, perceptions and beliefs in a safe and non-threatening setting. If you're not clear about what you want, then life coaching can be a great way to assist your exploration."
What do you feel the benefits of receiving life coaching are?
"In one word "empowering" - Life Coaching has really helped me to come into my own. I am now more determined and motivated to take the lead in creating a better work/life balance which will inevitably enhance my performance at work and overall bring about a better quality of life. The additional bonus is that I can use my new found awareness and ways of thinking in all areas of my life."
"The Life Coaching intervention has been really useful, and in some ways particularly challenging. The sessions are constructed in such a way that they are tailored to suit individuals’ needs and what they perceive as areas that need improvement, focus or clarification. There is a strong sense of balance between personal and work life, and these areas are explored in a joint fashion to focus on motivation, satisfaction and achievement across the board."
"The sessions are particularly useful as they provide an opportunity to focus on yourself for a period, which is sometimes difficult to do without criticism and a biased slant. The facilitator encourages objective observation, and tries to promote a sense of self –realisation and methods to promote positivity and improvement."
"I would recommend another colleague – the sessions are a valuable opportunity to identify themes and to formulate a plan of action to achieve targets that are set by yourself – in terms and phrases that are understood and achievable. These not need always be work related – and I feel this is a really important element, as things outside of work influence performance and attitude in the work place."
"Life coaching is a vehicle to self achievement. The facilitator channels thoughts, feelings and behavioural pattern and can explain the effects of a particular behaviour trait, for example, and positive steps in how to correct them. It is an empowering feeling to have someone listen to you uninterrupted for set period of time and to be able to unravel this into a semblance of a plan of action, the notes prepared afterwards make you realise a certain pattern of behaviour and then you can put into practice the tips that are passed on in these sessions on how to change them in a way that feels meaningful."
