Business and Mindset Coaching for ELT Professionals

Work less, earn more, live more fully. 

How can I help you?

I work with ELT freelance professionals and business owners 1-2-1 and on my group programme, Flourishing Foundations. 

Work with me to:

  

💡 Create more clarity about your priorities, so you don’t waste precious time on work that doesn’t bring in enough money and doesn’t give you joy.

 

💡 Start valuing yourself more highly, and develop the confidence (and strategies) to negotiate better rates.

 

💡 Learn how to market yourself better, and therefore get better offers or rates, meaning you can work fewer hours and get more money, rather than less.

 

💡 Start working smarter rather than harder, with better systems, meaning that you can get more done in less time.

 

💡 Get better at being appropriately assertive, saying no and setting boundaries.

 

💡 Learn how getting enough rest and exercise (and fun) actually makes you more productive, not less.

 

💡 Create or re-vamp a business which you love, and which pays you what you’re worth. 

 

Group Programme

Switch off Stress, Switch on Success is my  14 week small group programme for ELT freelancer professionals, entrepreneurs and business owners: teachers, trainers, writers, editors, school owners. 

Develop or come up with your business idea, learn all the foundational business skills you need, and overcome  any mindset blocks which may be holding you back.

 

1-2-1 Coaching

For a deeper dive into your business, and a more client-led, bespoke approach, work with me 1-2-1 over 6 months. 

Through 1-2-1 coaching I can help you  develop  the strategies, confidence and clarity to create your a business which gives you joy, and does more than just pay the bills. 
We can work on whatever is holding you back, whether that’s building more confidence, the specific steps you need to to take to scale your business or create a new offer, or anything else you need.

 

I contacted Rachael when I was feeling stressed & badly managed in the materials writing role I had. I felt a bit paralysed too as I didn’t know which direction to head in next. I was hesitant to sign up with her as I’d never worked with a coach before & wasn’t sure how I could go about making any changes as I’d lost a bit of confidence & there didn’t really seem to be many opportunities available.

4 months later and I feel like quite a different – and much happier! – person. I’ve changed direction in my career and managed to get an excellent new role that combines teaching, writing, research, and paid holidays but with much better support and management. I’ve also been offered more writing work based on the work we’ve done to make my profile more visible.

Rachael was great to work with, encouraging and supportive and I felt lighter after even our first session. She really helped me get my confidence back & I thought she was particularly good at helping me figure out what would make me happier & then the right steps to head in that direction and to make it work! Thanks!

Rachael had always struck me as someone who’s easy and enjoyable to talk to, so when I decided I wanted to have some coaching, I thought of her. I knew I didn’t want someone who would sit there passively and wait until I answered my own questions (which is what I’d always thought coaches and therapists did!) That couldn’t have been further from the truth – Rachael offered ideas, asked great questions and explained different psychotherapy theories which we used as a kind of prism to understand the way I felt and behaved. I now feel on the front foot and ready to break out of a long-established pattern of behaviour. It’s been really helpful and interesting – thanks, Rachael!

I’m self-employed so I do various jobs and often take on too much, and don’t establish boundaries. As a result of the group programme, I’ve learned to feel more comfortable about saying ‘no’. I’ve also begin to understand what underpins my trouble with that- people pleasing- and what is really going on with procrastination. For someone on the fence about this programme, I’d say, ‘Try it!’ You’ll feel a lot better about yourself, which will help your motivation and your focus. I’m looking forward to better boundaries, and to enjoying work more as a result.
