Wendy Smith is qualified and experienced coach offering well recommended life, career and business coaching. With a warm open approach, her experience means she is equally at home helping you deal with personal issues or your career.

Do you have problems at work, at home or with your business? Are you at a career or life cross-roads? Have you got problems with the boss or other colleagues at work? Is a relationship at home or at work not going the right way? Would you like to find a new job or start a new business? Would you just like to feel happier and more fulfilled? I can help! I am a qualified and experienced coach offering a well recommended life, career and business coaching service. As well as expertise and professionalism, my values are empathy, authenticity and providing an open, flexible approach.

I’ve coached, mentored and supported several hundred people through all kinds of challenges and problems at work and at home. After starting life as a nurse, I worked as a manager in both the public and private sectors. My experience as an H.R. manager means I’m well placed to advise on job search and career development. I have also started and managed three small businesses.

I chose to become a life coach, as well as a career and business coach, because I wanted to work with people in all parts of their lives. Feeling whole means having a good life at home as well as succeeding at work.

I work mainly one to one with clients by phone. Coaching sessions usually last an hour and are held fortnightly or sometimes weekly. I work with clients to get the issues clear, then work with them on the solution. If you are job seeking, I will review your CV and application letters and prepare you for interviews or assessment centres. As a business coach, I am used to working with new start-ups.

In my spare time I am a creative writer and poet.

Life Coaching

Life Coaching with Wendy Smith

Life coaching focuses on the future to encourage personal-development and self-improvement. It can help you in all aspects of your life. Are you struggling with something? It could be dealing with a difficult relationship, standing up for yourself at work, having the confidence to move out of your comfort zone and try something new or finding new direction and purpose in your life. Life coaching can help you manage grief and can even help you deal with spiritual issues to find peace of mind.

A life coach will approach things practically but sympathetically. Through

questions and exercises, I will try to get a good idea of how you look at the world. From this, I will be able to help you find the most effective route to your goal. Some people feel intimidated by the idea of change and so need to take things slowly. So I might help you divide final goals into smaller bite-sized pieces. Other people may get impatient and lose interest. So, I might suggest introducing stronger reminders and incentives to keep you on track. However you approach life, as your life coach, I will be able to tailor your sessions to fit your needs.

These are some of the things life coaching can help with.

• Personal life – do you feel like you’re not making the most of life? There’s so much to see, do and learn in this world. But often a lack of confidence, time and will-power can cause us to stay inside not doing anything. I will use my specialist skills to motivate you to do the things you want to do. I will help you fight that urge to procrastinate.
• Your love life – how do you go about finding a partner? Do you wish you had the confidence to approach someone you like? Some people have problems with commitment? Are you struggling to cope with a divorce? Whatever the problem, we can work together to help you to understand your love-life and work towards improving it.
• Performance – improving your life is at the heart of life coaching. Whatever your skills, life coaching could help improve them. Whether you’re an athlete, an artist, a writer, a performer, or a musician – adopting specialist techniques will help you to push your limitations and exceed expectations.
Emotions – I can help you to manage, and learn to value, your emotions. You can learn to manage anger and deal with upsets without feeling frustrated or stressed. I can help you manage grief, loss, sadness and change.
Confidence – I have a qualification in coaching people to get to a higher level of confidence at home and at work.
Business life – starting and running a business is tough work. Sometimes we get so absorbed in hard work we neglect ourselves. I can help with confidence, leadership, decision-making and work/life balance.
Stress and anxiety – as a life coach I can help you learn to handle pressure and feel more confident about dealing with stressful situations.

What happens during a life coaching session?

Life coaching sessions usually last about an hour 60 minutes over the phone. During the session, I will ask you a number of questions, such as what you want to get out of life, what areas you’re unhappy with and where you’d like to see yourself ending up. Although a life coach will work with you, it’s often up to you to challenge or reflect upon certain ideas to help you move forward with your life. You will never be forced to make any decisions you don’t feel comfortable with and all sessions will be confidential. This allows you to explore your thoughts and feelings privately.

Life coaching is often seen as a partnership between you and your life coach. I will gently encourage you to explore how to make positive changes in your life. I will offer support and feedback to help you to stay focused on your goals.

Business Coaching

Business coaching to help you succeed

Business coaching with me will give you an external, objective and constructive perspective on your plans from an experienced business woman. Setting up a new business  or becoming a manager for the first time can be daunting. It helps to work with someone who has done it themselves as well advising clients.

Wendy Smith is qualified and experienced coach offering well recommended life, career and business coaching. With a warm open approach, her experience means she is equally at home helping you deal with personal issues or your career.

For start-up businesses, I offer much needed support, guidance andexperience. Start-ups are notoriously risky – about half fail within the first three years due to misjudged markets, overestimated forecasts, underestimated liabilities and so on – all easy mistakes to make for a first-timer. With an experienced business coach on-board, you can produce a business plan that is credible and has a very good chance of success. I can support you carrying your plans through.

If you are an established business, dealing with suppliers or managing a team of people can be incredibly difficult. How do you get everyone to work as well as they possibly can and together? You need to be confident – there’s no use worrying that no one likes you. If you appear to lack confidence and seem uncertain then you’re unlikely to gain the trust and respect of your team, your suppliers or your customers. I can help you meet the challenges of leadership.

Whether you are a business owner or a manager, working with a business coach will help to develop and hone your skills. It will greatly improve your chances of success.

Business Coaching with us includes

  • executive coaching (for senior managers)
  • start-up business coaching (for prospective entrepreneurs)
  • management coaching (team leaders and for business leaders wishing to expand their business.) 

Remember working with a coach really does increase your chances of success. Get in touch at the email address below – I offer a free half hour trial session by phone or Skype.
