Life Coaching – helping you to live the life you love

The above words describe the context within which I chose to live. They are the result of many hours of reflection, training and especially lessons and conclusions drawn from life experiences and many years of Life Coaching and Mentoring.

Curiosity and wonder have served me well since I was a little girl. They are still very much part of my philosophy of life and are pivotal to my commitment to create an environment that works for me and my communities.

My life mission is to have a world that works for everyone which is guided by the commitment to create win-win situations where co-operation is one of the core elements of powerful communication.

I firmly believe that taking responsibility for one’s life is a fundamental element for a great life. With responsibility comes accountability. I specialise in being an Accountability Partner. This role enables me to support clients in taking the actions they are committed to and avoid the pitfalls of distractions, doubt and resistance to change.

I use my training and vast experience in guiding my clients to assess where they are in an authentic and realistic way and enable them to clarify their thinking, establish boundaries and have a plan of action which is inspiring and effective.

Who I work with

I am interested in connecting with experienced professionals (HR, health professionals and people transitioning from employee to self employed) over 50, interested in increasing their level of effectiveness and productivity. They may also be interested in sharing and pass on their experience, knowledge and skills by setting up or further develop a business which will enable them to do so.

About me – the author

My writing career came to life with the publication of my first book: Defining Moments – Reclaim Your Power & Live The Life You Love. (which is also available in Italian: Momenti Decisivi – Riafferma Te Stesso & Vivi La Vita Che Ami). This book is an autobiography with a difference: I wanted to use it as a conversation starter, an invitation to people around me to ask themselves those questions which can be confronting and at times, scary, the answer to which though, can well be the key to peace of mind and fulfilment.

By putting pen to paper, I have been able to clarify my own thinking and what really matters to me. What matters to me is to develop and live a powerful life where, despite the circumstances, I am aware of how I operate, take responsibility for where I find myself and take actions which are consistent with my context.

If a country girl can manage to move from the restricted environment of a small village, to London, on her own, and create a successful life for herself and go through whatever she had to go through, anything is possible. 45 years on, I can look back and feel satisfied with what I have accomplished. I have often asked myself: “who do I need to be and what do I have to do to have a life of no regrets?” This is a big question I invite my readers to ask themselves.

I recently contributed to the co-authored book: How to Win & Keep Clients. The book is a source of knowledge and inspiration for solopreneurs, budding coaches and anyone interested in finding ways to succeed. My chapter focuses on the importance of taking care of the Mental and Emotional element of “you”. Mental and Emotional wellbeing is an integral part of the foundation for personal choice and ultimate success, whether in life or business.

  • More about my expertise

    The transition between working within the corporate world and a home based consultancy business has provided valuable insights and training in identifying the different requirements and demands on people working in these two diverse environments.

    Some of the skills required to succeed in each of these environments are quite different both at a practical and psychological level. Not understanding the nature of the different requirements, could mean the difference between success and failure since they are not directly correlated to the technical skills required to carry out the job or running a successful business. Rather, it is the attitude of mind towards the job or business that makes the real difference.

    The experience of running a consultancy business with my husband for 25 years has also enabled me to discover what it takes to work together from home. The initial effort of harmonising the way we relate to business by creating a financial and emotional partnership has enabled us to create financial security for ourselves and the family.

    A professional interest led me to join, on a part-time basis, the Acute Care Services of the Mental Health Trust in an administrative capacity. This role enabled me to gain experience on the approach adopted in the care of patients through the Home Treatment Teams and/or admission of patients detained for treatment under the Mental Health Act.

    My continuous participation over the last 25 years in personal development programs run by a variety of organizations, has enabled me to train and develop the skills to deal powerfully with every aspect of my own life issues as well as team development. I pass the benefits of these skills to my clients.

  • I am a country girl, someone whom from the age of 7 contributed to the running of the family farm. With my brother I would mind the cows in the fields, I would collect chestnuts (which we could sell) and acorns (to feed the animals) before going to school. I knew from an early age though, that what I had was not the life I wanted to live. I wanted to discover the world and find out what was available beyond the environment I happened to be born in.

    Through the books I want to share what has worked for me, the lessons learnt, and the results produced.
