Transitions Coaching – Make the Best of the Rest of Your Life
I work to support those going through transitions in their personal or work lives. I use a practical approach which encourages people to focus on moving forward – designing their own future, developing a plan to get there and reflecting on progress along the way. I will help you stay motivated throughout the changes you are facing.

You will find out how coaching can help and support you through your current situation, how you can come out the other side and gain the life you want.
Transition is a challenge for most people. In order to introduce something new to our lives we have to let go of some aspect of the past. My coaching provides a safe space for identifying what’s truly important to you and your life goals – more importantly I accompany you on the journey as you work out how to reach those goals. As your coach I will be with you throughout the process, supporting and encouraging you while also challenging you when needed.
I started training in NLP in 2006 and reached Master Practitioner level; I finished my coach training in 2010. Since then I have helped people with a variety of transitions. These include: changing relationships with others, finding a life purpose, introducing new habits, finding a more fulfilling career direction, as well as dealing with transitions in the family situation.
“Through my work with Jane I have learnt some new behaviours and how to integrate them into my daily life. I went to her to find out how to feel more part of a community and I feel like I’ve found a new sense of myself and how I relate. Jane heard everything I said, while pushing me gently to hold me to the point and progress towards my goal. Jane’s catalytic conversations have helped me move forward.”
My background is project management and I continue to use those techniques as I help people with their personal projects. My approach is very practical and focused on helping you move forward with your plans. We will continually review what’s working and tweak what isn’t. By the end of the coaching process you will have the tools you need for managing change in your life so that you can support yourself long after the coaching ends.

“I started coaching with Jane after a shock in my relationship – Jane held a safe and accepting space for me to think through what this meant for me, and to begin to reorient myself and make new decisions about how to move forward. She was kind and also searching in her questions, and I felt challenged to look for my true answers at a deeper level than my conditioned quick responses. “
”Jane has seen me through starting my new role and navigating a series of challenges after that. She has played a massive role in helping me develop new possibilities. I now feel able to have difficult conversations and speak up for myself. I have a tookit of techniques I can use for myself in future, especially when analysing problems or thinking about how others might react.
I felt assisted and supported and can really open up to Jane. Even when things didn’t go to plan, I knew I could take it back to her for a chat and it would all be OK.”
