You can start again and re-kindle your passion for life

Many women get to a point of ‘is this all there is to life?’

Roles, responsibilities and comfort zones created by other’s need’s often become the norm and unnoticed over time.

We forget who we really are and what we want out of life.

Maybe you’ve reached a crossroads and not sure what to do next. Perhaps you have dreams and goals but don’t know where to start.

At times of transition, or when life just doesn’t feel right anymore it can be difficult to refocus on what you really want and take the action you need to move forward.

Remember,  it’s never too late to start again, to make new choices and create a happier and more fulfilling life.

Hello, I'm Yvonne, a wellbeing and life coach based in the North East of England.  

I've always loved encouraging women to be the best they can be and to go for what they really want in life. Because over the years I've experienced the feeling of being stuck and wanting change and having to dig deep to move forward. 

Big life events and changes started to happen in my forties. Divorce, menopause, family illness and bereavement all took their toll on me. I felt out of balance, I was exhausted emotionally and physically and I just lost my zest for life.

To get my energy back I got back into the outdoors, walking and jogging (slowly!). I discovered visualisation and created a personal vision board, joined a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course, got a bit more focused on nutrition, tried yoga and meditation classes. It wasn't just one thing it was the combination of just trying stuff to take extra care of myself and get myself in a more balanced state.

I'm still working on it, I believe we need to 'fill our cup' if we want to be well, resilient and to grow to be our best possible self.

Coaching is a journey of self discovery, finding clarity about what it is you really want out of life, exploring fresh perspectives on what matters to you and finding the motivation and inspiration to take the steps needed to shift your life. 

Wellbeing and life coaching is an holistic approach, focusing on the whole person. What is going on in our life, our circumstances, mind, body, biology and environment are inter-related. 

Everything, thoughts, emotions, choices, habits, lifestyle - affect our sense of harmony. Our bodies strive to be in balance.

I believe my clients have the potential to create the life they want, to get back on track and find their own sense of harmony.

1:1 private coaching is online or outside walking in the countryside (this option would suit those in the area of County Durham who love nature, fresh air or wish to get moving physically.

My approach is calm and intuitive, providing the support, motivation and inspiration you need.

I'll be your biggest cheerleader!

Your journey of self discovery

We start with a discovery session to find out where you are in your life, what it is you want from coaching, get to know each other and see whether we are a good fit to work together. 

I encourage you to dream. To create a vision for your life that makes you feel excited and inspiring goals to help get you there.  

There's no judgement and I provide you with all the ongoing support, motivation and accountability you need.

On your journey of self discovery you will learn more about yourself, building confidence and self belief with each step you take.

Supportive tools are provided to help you reflect on your progress and celebrate your achievements. I may set homework - this might be an action step, questions or a worksheet to keep you on track. 

Whether you have a specific area you want to work on or are not sure where to start coaching sessions are planned around your needs.

Ultimately we work together to find the best path forward for you and adapt where needed.

Do you want to...

* Re-discover who you are

* Re-focus on what you want out of life

* Find clarity and a way forward

* Start taking action towards achieving 

  your dreams

* Feel excited about life again

Client Testimonials

I worked with Yvonne at a time of huge changes in my life, when I needed to leave behind one way of living and embrace a new, different and (I felt, less certain) future. She helped me think through how I could achieve a healthier, more positive outlook. We discussed how to overcome my mental barriers, and worked together to change my mindset. Most of our work was done whilst we had bracing outdoor walks either in the countryside or at the coast, followed by a coffee. Her approach really worked for me and I felt more prepared to move forward, with a much better mindset. I'd highly recommend her. Thanks Yvonne! Louise Manley, Durham

“I met with Yvonne for 1-1 coaching to get some clarity on my business goals. Yvonne is a lovely person and she was wonderful to work with. She listened to my fears and concerns, asked me lots of questions to get to the bottom of them, and gave me a way to rethink and re-frame them so that they no longer had negative connotations. She also gave me ideas and ways to get more clarity, focus and motivation in working towards my goals for next year, both in practical action steps as well as mindset. I wholeheartedly recommend Yvonne's skills and training as a life coach. Many thanks, Yvonne!” Catherine Tuckwell, Sunderland, Photographer

“As soon as I heard about the (Vision Board) workshop, I knew I would be going along. I needed some time for myself and wanted space to reflect. I was hoping that even though there were others in the room, I wouldn't have to talk too much as I wanted some head space. I found the whole experience to be so therapeutic. I didn't overthink while cutting out the pictures but just went with what I was drawn to. I'm still amazed at the result. The images and words, that I chose, all fit together and are so meaningful for me. My board has pride of place in my office at home and I regularly look at it and find that I'm quite amused at how accurate it is for where I am and where I'm heading. The host, lunch and venue as well as the team at the workshop all added to the rather relaxing experience.”

Deb Fozzard, Sunderland

"I really enjoyed our session, and it did make me reflect on my future.  A little scary to be honest but it was just what I needed. I do feel as though I have moved forward with some of my goals and expectations and the tool you used really helped me focus. The walking coaching was unique, and I felt being out in the fresh air blew the cobwebs away – inside and outside my head."
Lynder Mathieson, Sunderland

"I recall during my initial discovery call with Yvonne, blurting out “I just don’t know who I am anymore?”. I’d experienced a series of life changing events, which, coupled with a lifetime of self-limiting beliefs had resulted in me standing very confused at a metaphorical crossroads; I had no idea which road to take and I was afraid to step out in any direction. I was stuck.

Together we began to explore my ideal vision for my life and discovering my true purpose. I loved the vision board exercise which Yvonne suggested as it really helped me focus in on what things were important to me. From here Yvonne helped me recall and define my strengths, and we worked together on changing some of the negative thought processes that I’d held for a long time, which were definite barriers to me moving forward.

I had several avenues I had to explore (with one or two changes in direction along the way!) but Yvonne just went with me each time, giving encouragement and support. I was amazed that the smallest of steps really do produce fantastic results, and I got over my compulsion for everything to be perfect.

I loved the sessions with Yvonne as it was like a catch up with a good friend over coffee: sometimes a few tears shed at times, but with plenty of laughter.

I am the same woman I have always been … but I’m a much better version now!

Thank you so much Yvonne, for everything.
