1:1 Coaching - Safe, Confidential, Empowering

Supportive Coaching takes a moment and lasts a lifetime.

Individual Coaching - Online One-off Sessions or Packages

Each coach has their individual preferred way of working with clients and their own areas of specialisms, although their qualifications and experience will allow them to support other areas a client might wish to explore - so don't be put off if your precise circumstances are not described in their bio!

Coaching is a confidential process, and it can bring up very personal matters at times - sometimes even topics you avoid speaking about to your nearest and dearest.  It is important to us that you feel safe and comfortable at all times.  We therefore recommend you have a short conversation with any potential coach before committing - to ensure you connect well and that both you and the coach have a clear understanding about how you will work together and what outcomes you wish to achieve through coaching.  

Use the 'Book a Call' button with your preferred coach and get a free 30-minute exploratory conversation with them. It's that simple! So get started with investing in yourself and your future today!


Sessions are priced at £85 per 60 minute session on a pay as you go basis for non-members.

Package sessions for non-members are 4 x 60 min sessions £320 or 6 x 60 minute sessions £450

Discounts are available for NHS, Emergency Services, Military and unwaged. Talk to us to find out more.
