Conscious Career coach and life purpose guide, passionate about reconnecting women over 45 to the source of their wisdom and power. Live and work more true to your authentic self. Learn Focusing as a superpower for a fully lived life and meaningful work. Qualified and experienced coach (20 years).

What services do I offer?

1. Felt-sense-oriented career change coaching and career clarity coaching for women wanting to find themselves and career fulfilment.

A blend of pragmatic "real world change" coaching techniques with the profound “arising-from-within” self-understanding and aligned actions that emerge from Focusing.

We’re bombarded with other people’s ideas and opinions, outside voices that distract and confuse us. Of course you need advice and mentoring in your career or business, but you also need to be able to connect to your inner compass, find your own direction, and think freshly about your situations.

2. Be True to You - Finding the way to your true self with felt sensing

One-to-one introductory course in Focusing/felt-sensing using your current career or business dilemma/issue as the framework for learning to access your inner guidance and self-leadership.

3. Guided Focusing Sessions

In person and via video-conferencing or telephone

My background in Focusing

Focusing has made a huge difference to my life, both personally and professionally.

For me it is the missing link that enables confidence, clarity, and provides multiple "aha" moments and actual shifts when you are in the midst of change.

It's helped me develop self-belief, get clear on what I want for my practice, and got me out of the very stuck place I was in where I felt confused, direction-less, and disempowered in my work-life.

It was not at all how I’d imagined working for myself would be when I left investment banking to become a therapist! Instead of feeling fulfilled, I felt burnt out and like I was always sabotaging myself.

Focusing has helped me feel solid, grounded, empowered, and deeply resourced as a business owner, as a coach, ...and as a woman of a certain age dealing with all the life changes that come as you get into your 50s.

I've learned that I can rely on my "inner compass" for fresh thinking, and wisdom about my situations. For many years I've read about "the wise woman within". Now I know how to access and invoke her.

This is why I do the work I do:

Too many corporate women who want a more fulfilling career doing meaningful work, are stuck in their heads, struggling with a tangled combination of lack of self-belief and lack of direction, not knowing who they are without their corporate id, and split off from significant parts of themselves.

Through combining coaching and Focusing, I teach them to connect with their own “inner compass”, coach their mission for this new chapter, and stepping into their power and resources as their own boss, so they too can flourish and, finally, be fulfilled at work.

“Working with Helen was truly a gift. She has an incredible teaching style that is marked by a collaborative approach. Since working with Helen, I have used my Focusing skills in every area of my life and discovered profound insights and sense of calm. No matter your journey, I cannot recommend Helen enough!”

“I’m not sure that I would have been brave enough to consider such a change, never mind embark on potentially a whole new path, if we had not met and spoken. I am so glad and grateful we did. Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom with me and for pointing the way. It feels like my life has changed for the better.”

First class coach. Excellent value for money. You have a great understanding of the issues facing women…
...Your support and incisive questions have helped me untangle stuff that’s about my current work and what holds me back there. It’s made me realise just how rarely I let the world see me at my best – and what a waste this is.
You champion me and remind me of how fantastic I can be. You’re far better than Red Bull – the effects are much longer lasting!!”
