Hi, I'm Yvonne.  As a Professional Wellbeing Life Coach and Personal Fitness Trainer I can help empower you to re-kindle your passion for life and start living with renewed focus and energy to a healthier, happier you.

Your path to growth, expansion and wellbeing

Life is full of change and transitions, often presenting us with new challenges. We get stuck in roles, responsibilities and comfort zones that have been created by other's needs and that don’t fulfill us anymore or help us to flourish.

Remember, it’s never too late to re-think what we really want and make new choices to create a more fulfilling life.

You already have everything you need; your life experience, your inner wisdom and your intuition. There's really nothing to fix.

In my coaching practice I help you shift your life from where you are to where you want to be. I invite you to give yourself permission to find the purpose, passion and fulfillment you desire at this stage in your life.

I’ll guide you towards a greater sense of your own wellbeing, helping you find more balance, overcome fears and develop the confidence to choose action over inaction.

A bit about me

I hit a roadblock in my life during midlife. A number of challenges came along, including a menopause that caused havoc with my mind and body and I was struggling to cope and I started exploring ways regain balance such as meditation and mindfulness. 

A family illness led me to retire earlier than I'd expected after more than 30 years of sports coaching, marketing and communications roles. It was then that I took time re-consider what I would do next.

Helping people find their own confidence had always sparked me and I decided to make a change. 

I re-trained as a Wellbeing Life Coach to help women find their own confidence in midlife and later trained as a Personal Fitness Trainer to help women feel well through movement and exercise.

Using my years of experience, training and knowledge, I help women struggling in their own life to move forward. 

I take an holistic and gentle coaching approach, supporting women to discover what needs to happen to make changes and feel better about themselves.

Get in touch. I'd love to help.


Client Testimonials

Happy Women

"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 reframe 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

Coaching Packages

How I work

We start with a complimentary 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 how we can work together. 

You create your vision for the life you want and set goals that will help you get there. You may have one overarching goal or 2-3 smaller ones you want to work towards, it's entirely up to you. We work with your strengths, resources and capabilities from where you are in your life.  

There's no judgement, just ongoing support, accountability and motivation you need.

You will discover more about yourself, learn what you need most and create the beliefs, behaviours and habits to enable you to become the person you want to be.

I will often set homework to help keep you motivated and moving forward. There is space for reflection as well as celebrating your successes and progress as we move forward. 

Ultimately we work together to find the best path for you. 

Whether you have a specific area you want to work on or are not sure what your priorities are, we can plan coaching sessions to help you find clarity and start taking action.
