Little Wing Coaching Philosophy and Background
I have always loved learning and helping people to learn, so no surprise that my background is in lecturing. I have a BA (Hons) degree in Business Studies and an MSc in Marketing and wanted to use my knowledge and experience by offering business coaching as well as life coaching.
I am passionate about animals and care greatly about their welfare and dignity. My husband and I live on a small holding and have 2 dogs, a cat and chickens, grow our own vegetables and have a love and respect for the countryside. We also have 3 horses and study natural horsemanship in order to be the best owners we can be for them and this is where my journey of never ending self-improvement began – first of all by studying to be an NLP Practitioner, which then led me to the level 5 Diploma in Performance Coaching with the fabulous Louise Trevatt at Simply Changing, which is accredited by EDI the largest accreditation body in the UK and the NCP (National Council of Psychotherapists). As a horse rider I am well aware of how easy it is to lose confidence and through the coach training programme I discovered how much a riding accident in my teens had impacted on me since then. I learned how to ’re-file’ that incident in my memory and my confidence in the saddle has come on so much since then that I can empathise and help other riders with confidence issues.
In order to further support rider safety we are also the UK and European distributors of SmartRider Breakaway Safety Stirrups http://www.smartrideruk.com which gives riders even more confidence that if they fall from their horse they will not be dragged.

My Philosophy on Coaching
I believe in living life to the full and doing anything you want to if you are prepared to put in the time and effort to achieve goals ethically. Coaching helped me to see the link between all of the courses I’ve done so far and has given me ideas for more still! I believe that coaching allows people to make the changes they have been seeking in their lives to reach true happiness and success by unblocking the things that have been holding them back. Everyone has a choice about how they live their lives – whether that choice is to stay as they are or to live the way they want to live. My goal is to coach people so they too can get what they want out of life … and I’ll probably sign up for some more courses myself!
