Helping You Find Success With Personalised Coaching

Feel Like It’s Time to Make a Change in Your Life, But Can’t Seem to Find a Way?

   What Is Life Coaching?

Coaching explores who you are—so that you can understand why you do and think the things that you do—while looking at what you want from your life, what’s going on inside your head and most importantly, how you can start making changes that don’t have you heading for the door.

My coaching approach covers far more—and will dig deeper than simply setting goals. Goal-setting and solution-seeking are two of the ways that I work.

And I’ll also help you to understand and explore yourself, your life through conversations around your beliefs, deep-fears, thoughts, assumptions and behaviours.

In a nutshell? Through our sessions, you’ll find the courage to do the things you’ve always thought you couldn’t.

And that’s a lot easier when you have someone who’s been there, right beside you, on what might turn out to be the best decision of your life.

How Do I know If Coaching is Right For Me?

How much does coaching with you costs?
9 sessions of coaching with me are £1350 in full or £250 monthly over 4 months with an initial £500 deposit.
I am not sure if coaching is for me. How do I figure this out?
If you’ve signed up for a billion ‘Change Your Life, in 3 Steps!” ebooks (and not bothered to read them) or if you’re sick to the back teeth of feeling out of whack in your life, aware that you’re squandering your potential and frustrated as you watch everyone else move forward with their lives while you’re not, coaching is for you. For most people, the very reason they’re drawn to coaching (because they’re feeling half-hearted about life and indecisive) is the very reason that keeps them from deciding whether to actually get coaching! To help you with your decision, let’s talk! Coaching is a little bit like buying a pair of shoes, let’s make sure that my coaching is the right fit for you. If at the end of our talk, I’m not the coach for you, there are no strings attached, we simply say our goodbyes and that’s it—no drama. (I won’t send any cringe-worthy, sales emails afterwards either, and that’s a promise). Book your free introductory call here. Reading about how other coaching clients found their coaching experience might also help you to decide. You can do that by clicking here. If you’re still not sure, read this.
Coaching seems like a big investment. How do I justify the cost?
Think about all the things we’ve used to try and feel better: expensive holidays, pricey cars, steep mortgages, spur-of-the-moment shopping sprees, extravagant meals with a few too many cocktails—and the list goes on and on. While they look good and shiny on the surface, they’re all an attempt to feel a certain way—to feel better about who the hell we are and the life we’re living. Yet people are scared to invest in coaching, likely because coaching is such an incredibly brave and courageous thing to do. It’s saying, “I’ve had enough of this.” It’s proclaiming, “I’m determined to make a change that lasts.” And it’s shouting, “No, I want more from life than this bullshit.” Let’s be real: holidays make us feel good, but they only last for two weeks a year. On the other hand, coaching gives us those same good feelings, but for life.
What kind of people work with you?
I coach people who want to describe their life as more than just fine. After all, fine is a word to describe a lukewarm, mediocre lunch, not your entire bloody life. I coach people who, on the outside, seem and look completely put together—and yet on the inside, they feel all over the place. Sometimes, my clients know why they’re all over the place, and other times it needs some digging (or pneumatic drilling while wearing those massive ear protectors). I coach people who are switched-on. They understand themselves well enough to know that the apathy and frustration they feel isn’t something that can be helped by a glass (or bottle) of wine or binge-watching shows on Netflix all day long. I coach people who recognise that something needs to change, and they’re ready and willing to do whatever it takes to get there (within reason) I’m hopeful, but not delusional. I work with reality, and if you’ve got a mortgage and three kids, I won’t tell you to quit your job to become a full-time knitter of tiny hats for squirrels). If you don’t know why you’re spinning your wheels at work, rolling your eyes at the whole world, or wanting to bang your head against the nearest wall—don’t worry. Wanting to change is enough, and coaching with me will get you there. There’s a lot of big-hearted, no-nonsense guidance included. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. I’m probably not for you if: You’re expecting coaching to be a quick-fix, 10 step plan process. It’s not. Coaching with me goes deep—it’s a safe place for you to show your fascinating and messy and complicated humanness. Moving forward means straight-up honesty from me, and I promise that getting underneath the excuses and digging into the real stuff is the ticket to helping what’s hurting you. I’m not for you if you’re expecting me to do all the work for you. I put everything I have into the coaching process, and I expect my clients to do the same.
What kind of coach are you?
I get a lot of emails from people inquiring about what kind of coach I am, and how I intend to help. I love these emails! They give me a chance to lay out the groundwork because while I’m good at what I do, I’m not actually for everyone. And since I always want the best for my clients, let me slap the facts on the table: I do not sugar coat things. Moving forward means no-holds-barred honesty, and I promise that getting underneath the excuses and digging into the real stuff is the ticket to helping what’s hurting you. Pleasantly nodding along would be doing you a huge disservice. I’m a certified coach, accredited and recognised by the International Coach Federation and the Association for Coaching—which means that two of the leading regulatory bodies in the professional coaching world know that I know my stuff. My coaching draws from an integrated range of psychologically-grounded coaching frameworks, philosophies and techniques such as Person-Centred Coaching, Transactional Analysis, Narrative Coaching, Rational Emotional Behavioural Coaching, Cognitive Behavioural Coaching, Rational and Mindfulness. I don’t use questionable manifestation techniques and will never, ever guarantee you an overnight six-figure income from working 2 hours a day on a beach in Bali. (Remember how I promised I’d never lie to you? I’ll never lie to you.) I’m hopeful, but not delusional, and work with reality. If you’ve got a mortgage and 3 kids, I won’t tell you to quit your job to become a full-time knitter of tiny hats for squirrels. Instead of expecting you to shake it all up, throw out stability and dive into the centre of a volcano to find yourself, we’ll work with what you’ve got and make changes that’ll put you back in charge of your life. Beyond the qualifications nailed to my wall though, I’ve learned how to help other people lead better lives through the lessons I’ve learned by living my own. From wanting to stick pencils in my eyes during 9-5 in a retail career that stifled me, to recovering from child abuse, to moving to a country, I didn’t speak the language of; I know that daily life can be hard. But I also know that we can do hard things.

6 REASONS

I AM NOT THE COACH FOR YOU

Of course, you naturally want to know who will be the one who is going to cheerlead and challenge you on your amazing life-changing journey. You really do need to make sure your life will be in safe hands and getting the right coach match is key.

The coach/client relationship is one built on mutual trust, and for you to feel truly understood, supported, excited and comfortable you have to feel secure with the right coach.

It’s important that you shop around to find a coach that seems compatible with what you wish to achieve and who understands you and your goals.

There’s a coach out there for everyone. If you are looking for a coach who uses compassion as well as passion, who coaches with humour as well as humanity and believes you can get more out of life than you currently are, then read on.

I get a lot of emails from people inquiring about what kind of coach I am, and how I intend to help.  I love these emails.

They give me a chance to lay out the groundwork because while I’m good at what I do, I’m not actually for everyone.

And since I always want the best for you, let me slap the facts on the table:

Sometimes, I struggle too. (Surprise!)

Life is challenging, and since I’m human, I’m not immune to the wily little gremlins that come ‘round to rain on my proverbial parade. Some days, I want to crawl back into bed and marathon Netflix documentaries, thoroughly avoiding adulting. Some days I compare myself obsessively to other people. (Spoiler alert: No one wins at this game.) And some days, I spend all my time looking at how we’re wired so we can short the system and reboot.

My coaching process does not involve a quick-fix, 10 step plan. I go deep.

Our sessions together will be a safe place for you to show up with all your fascinating and messy and complicated humanness. Moving forward means straight-up honesty from me, and I pinky promise that getting underneath the surface excuses and digging into the real stuff is the ticket to helping what’s hurting you.

I keep you accountable.

If you say you’re going to do something, I’ll check in to see if you followed through. Trust me—I know it’s easy to say you’ll do something, and then really fucking hard actually to do it. I help you close that gap uptight.

I’m hopeful, but not delusional.

I work with reality, and if you’ve got a mortgage and 3 kids, I won’t tell you to quit your job to become a full-time knitter of tiny hats for squirrels. Instead of expecting you to shake it all up, throw out stability and dive into the centre of a volcano to find yourself, we’ll work with what you’ve got and make changes that’ll put you back in charge of your life.

I love “Inspirational Quotes” quotes on Instagram telling you to Think! Your Way! Happy!

I am also aware that all those top-of-the-mountain quotes can make us feel bad for being who we are and feeling the way we feel. Instead of shouting mantras at you, my coaching focuses on why you’re thinking the way you are, what happens as a result, and how we can put work into those patterns to push forward.

I don’t edit myself.

I sometimes throw and F..bomb in my writing and coaching. Bottom line? I’m the same person online, offline, and in a karaoke bar. You’ll get all of me, all of the time.
