It’s no exaggeration that Hannah has transformed my life. From a very scared single parent with low self-esteem, struggling to pay the bills to a confident and empowered woman who has begun to believe in herself. My business literally took off within two weeks of applying her advice and I have gained so much confidence in my life.

Do you need a coach?

I can help you get clear about your life, and I’ll support and guide you to find a renewed sense of purpose in your middle age (the best age btw!). The answers are already within you, bursting to come out; let’s discover them together.

You might be feeling tired and resentful; after all, we have many challenges to face:

  • Menopause 

  • Divorce or separation 

  • Stroppy teenagers or the empty nest 

  • Ageing parents,

  • A lack of self-esteem and confidence 

  • Career crisis

  • Various health challenges (my knees and hips are already giving me gip)

  • Never mind the struggle of trying to look in the mirror without criticism and lovingly accept what is happening. 


We can’t talk about middle age without talking about loss - of loved ones, relationships, our reproductive systems, and often of ourselves. Who even are we? But when there is loss, space is created, and there is room for growth.

Yes, we have less energy than in our twenties, but now we have far more wisdom - so we can use our time wisely and make better (more congruent) choices that will set us up for a wonderful midlife.

Coaching allows your to rewrite your story

So that you can grow, thrive and bloom. To reflect on the past and learn, contemplate the present, and decide who you want to be in the future and how to get there. It allows you to identify those disabling limiting beliefs that stop you from going for what you want and work through them. 

Employing a coach means you’re taking control of your future. You get to decide what happens next in your life on this beautiful earth. You’re only ever one decision away from getting unstuck and transforming your life. 

In our lives, even though one episode amounts to a crash and burn, there is always another episode awaiting us and then another. There are always more opportunities to get it right, to fashion our lives in the ways we deserve to have them.

–Clarissa Pinkola Estes

There is a journey that all women must make at some point in their lives if they are to look back with gratitude and no regret. Coaching facilitates a voyage to the deep, profound and beautiful essence of who you are, and this is a powerful and extraordinary process. Rather than a crisis - it’s an opportunity for awakening.

I will be your trusted confidente and friend on this journey and help you create a vision for your future that is exciting, meaningful and filled with pleasure and peace.

After working with Hannah I feel more relaxed and reassured about my life. I’m learning to let go of social expectations and do/feel what is right for me. I will continue to work on my personal development but I’m already feeling confident about the future. I have lots of new plans from running a half-marathon to Spanish classes, solo travelling and finding a more fulfilling job!

Why My Coaching is So Unique & What You Can Expect

The Magic Trio 

The reason why I get such great results for my clients is that I offer a completely unique coaching experience using three separate modalities - all in one session.


1/ Traditional Coaching ~ I help you to clarify and identify your goals, identify any obstacles that will prevent you from reaching them and support you in your personal growth and development while holding you accountable.

2/ Mentoring ~ I will advise and guide, offer resources, ideas and tools to help you achieve what you set out to.

 3/ BWRT® ~ Any obstacles we identify in the session, such as fears or limiting beliefs that are holding you back, we remove in the session there and then, using this quick and powerful psychotherapy. Read more about BWRT® here.

The unique thing about Hannah is that she is constantly reading. And listening. And analyzing. And evolving to meet her changing needs as well as those of her clients. She is more up on top research for so much of the human experience than I will ever be, and I can't imagine living the healthy and happy lifestyle I do now, without her constantly updated support.
