I believe my job as a life coach is to help my clients have a more enjoyable experience of life. Simply put, I do this by sharing what I have learnt over the last 20+ years - and continue to learn - that has helped me to have a much more enjoyable experience of life too.
I am a graduate of Coach U, the world's first and largest life and corporate coach training school. I founded my company WildeLifeCoaching back in 2000 and coach clients around the world on Zoom and by phone. For local clients who live in Chiswick, Kew, Barnes, Richmond and surrounding areas in West London, we can meet face-to-face in a relaxed setting such as a coffee shop. Many of my clients also like to walk and talk!
Everyone will experience life coaching differently as the way it progresses depends very much on your individual needs and goals. Some clients come to me seeking big life changes, whereas others want to improve a relationship(s) or be inspired in one or more areas of their life. Many clients come to me after an adjustment - a relationship breakdown or job loss, for instance. Others want to understand the fears that have been adversely affecting them for years, maybe even a lifetime.

Coaching can benefit every aspect of your life - after all, who we are affects everything we do - but these are some of the common concerns that inspire clients to contact me:
- Stress, anxiety, worry and feeling overwhelmed.
- A poor work/life balance.
- Low confidence, self-esteem and silencing that inner critic.
- Improving relationships, from romantic and family, to their boss and work colleagues.
- Heartbreak and loss.
- Career challenges and change, self-employment and setting up a business.
- Struggling with an important decision.
- Transitions, including divorce, redundancy, back-to-work mothers, 'empty nest' and retirement.
- Poor enjoyment of life - needing help identifying what would make them happier.
- A lack of satisfaction, fulfillment and purpose, a sense of “Is this it?”
- Parents concerned about an anxious teen or 20-something. I very much enjoy helping young people navigate what can look to be a scary and uncertain world.
I also specialise in coaching adopted adults. I am adopted myself and can empathise with the issues common to adoptees such as fear of rejection and abandonment, guilt and shame.
Coaching is like detective work. I pride myself on intuitively understanding my clients very quickly. I am objective and non-judgemental. I ask questions that allow my clients to get to know themselves much better so they can make the right choices. I encourage clients to think beyond their familiar, habitual ways to discover what would bring them the most happiness and satisfaction.
Our coaching is completely confidential. I will never share anything we have spoken about - no one will know we are working together unless you tell them.
I understand that coaching is a big investment and I want you to know how amazing the benefits can be before you commit to paying the full price, so I offer a no-obligation discount off your first coaching session. We will also speak for one hour and fifteen minutes so I have plenty of time to get to know you, and you have plenty of time to ensure we're a good fit and will work well together.

After our first session, if you decide you would like to continue, I charge £105 for each one hour coaching session, or £190 for two one hour coaching sessions to be taken over the course of 4-6 weeks. Both fees are payable in advance.
Unlike the majority of life coaches, I don't ask you to sign up for an expensive package of sessions (most commonly between 6 - 12). You are not tied in for any length of time. Some of my clients only need 2 - 4 sessions, whereas others speak to me for years (often once a month or less), or just when they're facing a challenge.
In the first few months of coaching, fortnightly sessions usually work best as this keeps up the momentum. But if you have so much inspiration after a session that you would like longer to digest/execute all that we've talked about, then that’s fine too. I like to give value for money!
I also coach staff one-to-one at wellbeing and learning & development events. Click below to let me know your requirements.
