Elevate Your Well-being with Dynamic Group Coaching

Group coaching sessions dive deep into the realms of physical, emotional, cognitive, and mindful practice. Within the group environment, we cultivate a strong sense of community allowing us to collectively focus on transformation and transition. This small group coaching is your gateway to creative exploration, profound listening, and meaningful reflection. It's time to supercharge your well-being in the most dynamic way possible.

I deliver group coaching with an emphasis on ‘mind and body’ wellness. The focus is on physical, emotional, cognitive, and mindful education and practice. The content of the sessions consists of – mindfulness, CBT tools, self-compassion work, Pilates, breathwork and relaxation.

The group environment offers a sense of community where there is a shared focus on change and transition. This small group coaching allows for creative exploration, deep listening, and thoughtful reflection.


Outdoor Coaching

Research on the psychological and cognitive effects of being outdoors has found that time in nature enhances :-
- higher-order thinking
- restores attention
- brings perspective
- boosts creativity
I spend a great deal of my time walking in the local Pentland Hills in Edinburgh and Midlothian.
I know the benefits of getting away from my working environment and that is why I offer outdoor coaching to my clients.
Outdoor coaching allows coach and client to walk side-by-side which offers an experience of ease and equality.
Client benefits include:-
- getting away from work to limit distraction
- being in natural light
- becoming energised
- using their own intuition
