Change Your Story

I love stories!

We use language so powerfully to tell great stories, fascinating stories – myths, novels, poetry, podcasts, movies. Not to mention documentary truth-telling and vital journalism.

Your story

But it’s a tricky medium when it comes to understanding ourselves. We tell ourselves stories about how we can’t get out of our stuck situation because of x or y. How we can’t move on because a or b is stopping us. Or how there’s really no way someone like me can do something like that.

Rewriting your story

We all need help to rewrite our stories. To rewrite the stories we have told ourselves about who we are and what we can do.

I can help

As a teacher, what I’m passionate about is language – how it works, the way people use it, and how persuasive it can be. I will listen closely to your story and how you tell it to help you rewrite it in a liberating and empowering way.


Challenge yourself to change your story!

Top 5 reasons to change your story:

  • You don’t have to go on struggling or feeling stuck
  • You feel excited about the way your life is going
  • A small amount of time invested in coaching can make a difference for a long time
  • You understand yourself better – your values, motivations, strengths and weaknesses
  • You take control of your life and steer it in the direction you want it to go

Bird by Bird

Annie Lamott tells a wonderful story often referred to as the “bird by bird” story, about the time when as a child she and her family went to stay for the weekend in their cabin by the sea.

Her 10 year old brother was trying to get a report on birds written which he’d had three months to write and hadn’t started (sound familiar?). He was surrounded by books on birds, overwhelmed and paralysed by the enormity of the task.

Their father sat down next him and put his arm around his shoulder and said to him “Bird by bird, buddy. Just take it bird by bird.”

Getting a coach is about taking the first step.
"her focus [is] on building up and looking forward, rather than deconstructing and looking back"

Get in touch with me for a free introductory conversation about coaching.

 We can talk about what you’re stuck with – perhaps you already have an idea of where you want to be, but you don’t know how to get there, or maybe you don’t (and that’s ok). We can talk more about how coaching works and you can ask all the questions you want. And then you can decide if coaching with me is for you.

 I look forward to hearing from you!
