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.



Teams work best when they are able to communicate effectively, put themselves in each others shoes, understand how to manage workload efficiently, and manage 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.

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!

What can I give myself right now?

We all know that being kind and generous to others makes us feel good. But how often are we similarly giving and nurturing to ourselves? More often than not we treat ourselves in a way we would never dream of doing to anyone else. When I ask, ‘What can I give myself...

What’s wrong with being a people pleaser?

Maybe you suspect you’re a people pleaser? You find it hard to say no, you rarely put your own needs first, you hate the idea of being disliked or criticised. You’re probably aware that this kind of behaviour often leads to you taking too much on, and being...
