About me

REMEMBER .."If nothing changes..NOTHING changes!".......I describe myself as a Personal Coach, helping individuals to develop positive mindsets and behaviours..to stop settling and surviving but instead start creating and thriving in their life.  I coach busy (and not so busy) individuals to live creatively from the inside - out! ..........


I am here to listen...Not to work miracles

I am here to help you discover what you are feeling...Not to make things go away

I am here to help you identify your options...Not to decide what you should do

I am here to discuss steps with you...Not to take the steps for you

I am here to help you discover your own strength...Not to rescue you and leave you still vulnerable

I am here to help you discover that you can help yourself...Not to take responsibility for you

I am here to help you choose..Not to make it unnecessary for you to make difficult choices

I am here to provide support for your change!

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.
