  • Learn some strategies for managing stress and overwhelm.
  • Become part of an amazing, positive community.

”Overall, your group is a life-line, and reassuring in these difficult times. A huge thank you.”

Estelle, Language Trainer.

“Through psychology-based coaching and training, I help teachers and other educational professionals who are feeling anxious, overloaded, or perhaps worried about where their next client is coming from, to make positive and permanent changes in their lives and/or work.

Trained in counselling, psychotherapy and life coaching, I also have 30 years’ experience in education, and 12 years’ experience as a successful business owner.’

I work with you so you can finally stop running yourself into the ground, gain purpose and satisfaction in what you do, and free yourself from that critical little voice inside that always seems to hold you back.”

Rachael Roberts


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.


Group programme

Switch off Stress, Switch on Success is my  12 week small group programme for ELT freelancers: teachers, trainers, writers, editors. 

Develop or come up with your business idea, start to implement practical business skills and overcome mindset blocks.

In-service training and public speaking

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

I have years of experience working with groups to facilitate positive change and can make a real difference even in a one-off session.
I am also an experienced plenary speaker and workshop facilitator

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!

Coaching Client 2020

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.

The tyranny of the ‘should’

If there’s one word that should come with a big flashing neon light around it, it’s ‘should’. The German psychoanalyst Karen Horney perceptively talked about “the tyranny of the should.”   What does it mean if we say that we should do something? It...
