My Life

About Me

I feel my past experiences, set me on a path towards becoming a Life Coach, to help others.

Hi, I’m Jacqueline

Welcome

My early career was in Recruitment. I interviewed/placed all levels of insurance candidates to help them progress in their careers. The skills I acquired here have accredited me with transferrable experience and knowledge to be a Coach, along with my study and qualifications. Years later, after having children, I got heavily involved in developing my husband’s building company. Nowadays, I only concentrate on my Coaching business, which gives me the joy I have always sought from a job.

I have been through some tough times in my life. During my 20s, I started to get severe headaches. I was checked for a brain tumour, which was negative. The hospital began to ask about my life, and when I started to talk about my childhood, I broke down. They realised that the headaches were related to the trauma I had experienced during my childhood. I was referred to a lovely lady who, although a trained psychotherapist, appeared to be interested in other mind processes, too. She introduced and recommended a book by Louise Hay (which I still have today).  The book “You Can Heal Your Life” opened my thinking and introduced me to the connection between mind and body.

In my 30s, we lost our first child at birth after a relatively healthy pregnancy in very traumatic circumstances, which set me back for many years.

In my 40s, I was diagnosed with Leukaemia. During the consultation, I heard the consultant telling me that I would probably have 2 to 5 years to live. This was so much to bear;  my children were very young, and my thoughts turned to them.

I was offered the opportunity to trial a new drug. I wasn’t so keen on awful side effects, but I persisted even though the drugs felt like they were doing more damage to my body. But I will always be grateful to medical science, my consultant and our free NHS.

I also knew I had to change my mindset and help myself become more positive if I could beat this and live to see my children grow up, get married, etc.  So, I set out on a mission to help myself.  I tried many alternative therapies, keeping myself healthy by looking at the foods I ate; I studied what I should be feeding my body and had a keen interest in the connection between body and mind. I also needed to look to the future, as I could not change anything that had happened in the past. Finding my values and boundaries and helping myself find a path that would bring a positive outlook helped with my healing. I did a lot of soul-searching and reframing my thoughts; my life improved for the better. I could confidently handle situations (good or bad) in a way I couldn’t in the past. Life is about learning and growing, and embracing change.

So now I am helping many others on their journey in life, whatever they may be for them.

Life Coaching does require clients to be open-minded and willing to change. Usually, when you are,  this will come naturally. I am always amazed at how my clients can suddenly see more clearly and escape their current problems.  As a coach, I believe that each of my clients is whole and capable; I am only there to help guide them.

Coaching has many benefits; my clients will tell you they walk out feeling 10 feet taller most weeks.

Sessions: how many will I need? Some clients come to me with specific problems that they would like to sort out and perhaps have three sessions, and they feel empowered enough to go forward. Some clients see me for 6/10 sessions, then come back every one or two months to keep them on track, and some are happy to fly away into the sunset with a newfound confidence, sending me texts of their gratitude. Then others see me for longer. You will know what is right for you. Each client is an individual with their own unique needs and life path.

Having your Coach, is like having your own secret best friend, who you can confide in and have open conversations in the knowledge that the sessions are confidential.

It gives you space to look at your life, where you would like it to head, and how you can achieve this in a balanced way.

We celebrate each success along the way, big or small.

Life coaching can turn your life around.
