Life Coaching

Feeling stuck or overwhelmed? Aware that you are not looking after yourself properly? Anxious and snappy?

Through 1-2-1 coaching I can help you ‘wake up’ and reconnect with your authentic self.

Together we can sift through the pile of old habits and beliefs currently holding you back,  to develop greater resilience and the confidence and clarity to make any changes in your life that you desire.

In-service training and public speaking

Help your team learn how to communicate more effectively,  manage workload efficiently, and  deal with stress.

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!

As it becomes more and more obvious that things are not ‘going back to normal’ any time soon, all of us find ourselves facing an uncertain future. Perhaps the first thing is to recognise that none of us ever have the kind of certainty or control over our lives that we...

How to stop taking things so personally.

Human beings are hard-wired to worry and care about what other people think of them. No matter how much we tell ourselves to stop taking things so personally, it can be difficult, especially if our upbringing and life experiences have taught us to fear (or even...

Toxic positivity, toxic negativity, and how to avoid them.

Negative emotions don’t feel good. That’s kind of the point, because we have negative emotions to tell us that something is wrong, and to alert us to our need to protect ourselves, grieve, or change our situation in some way. But they feel bad, and so there’s often a...
