‘Thanks so much Joanna, I can’t believe how much my life is changing and I wouldn’t have felt brave enough without your support. You could see exactly where the issues were and just guided me through them’ - thanks again'

Do you want to make changes, but can’t quite manage to do so on your own? If so, you are not alone: most successful people use coaches to help achieve goals they could not on their own.
Having someone to champion you and help you pull the best out of yourself can make all the difference between getting where you want to be and being stuck, or feeling as if you are living a “lesser life” than the one you desire.
Do you have a Coach?
If not, you could be limiting your success. Coaches play an essential role in helping you identify and focus on what’s important, which in turn accelerates your success.
Most successful people have coaches: Oprah Winfrey, Eric Schmidt ( former CEO of Google), Leonardo DiCaprio didn’t get to where they are now through luck, but hard work, determination and the help of a coach.
Create a safe environment in which you can see yourself more clearly.
Help you clarify your goals; esgtablish what is most important to you.
Help you identify and align your values, work and life so you can live authentically.
Identify gaps between where you are and where you need or want to be.
Help identify your blind spots and how they prevent you from reaching your goals.
Ask for more intentional thought, action and behaviour changes than you would ask of yourself.
Focus on what would be most useful to change - not what wouldn’t.
Keep you accountable: guide the building of structure, accountability and support necessary to ensure sustained commitment: having someone to answer to helps keep motivation high.
Why use our Coaches?
Unlike others, most of our coaches are also trained counsellors, which means we can also deal with any emotional issues that arise.
You don’t have to leave part of yourself at the door when you enter our coaching session, we understand what makes people tick: why we sometimes struggle to achieve what we want and how to unlock our potential.
We are warm, supportive, experienced coaches who are here to help you realise your dreams and start living your best life, authentically…
We offer different types of coaching to help you achieve the life you want to live.
We believe in championing the person you were always destined to be - the seed is within you; you just may need a little support to bloom and show the world your true self.
Types of Coaching
Lack of confidence can stop us reaching our goals. We often stop ourselves from doing the things we want to. At Blackwood we can help grow your confidence so you can become the person who can and does attain goals.
It is common to reach a point on your life where you feel that you are not living authentically or you are not living a life suited to you. We can help you look at ways you wish to live and work and help you work through ways of making those dreams happen.
Whether you are responsible for helping your employees reach their best, a private client wanting to improve specific professional skills, or someone setting up your own business, we will help you look at what you need to do and change to achieve your goals.
This may include looking at issues that are holding you back, becoming more aware of your current strengths and skills and offering tools that will help you grow and develop.
If you want to improve your leadership skills, perform at a higher level, gain confidence and clarity in all aspects of your life, we are here to help. We offer executives a safe and confidential place to look at, resolve and work through issues that they believe are stopping them from being the leader they always want to be.
At Blackwood we know what it’s like to often feel like you are always apologising for yourself or accepting less than the males in your life; perhaps you feel that you have had to become more masculine than your male counterparts in order to achieve.
Women can offer so much to the world and that doesn’t mean giving up your femininity. We embrace the feminine power and show you how to too.
For many there is more to their lives than work and relationships, finding joy and peace in their spiritual life. Equally, there are many who feel they are missing something and wish there was more to their life, but struggle to find it.
It can be hard in our fast-paced, pressured modern world to find the time, or cognitive place for such an aspect to life. We are encouraged to be “ brain-orientated beings”, rather than complex, multi-faceted feeling, sensing and thinking beings.
If you feel you would like to adjust or explore your spiritual world, you have come to the right place. We can team you up with some of our coaches who have daily spiritual and meditation practices. Whilst they won’t lean you towards any belief system(that is your business ,not ours) they can offer you a free, non-judgmental space in which you can safely explore your beliefs and values, and come to your own conclusions. They can offer tools to help you improve your practice and find your own place for spirituality in your life if that is what you decide is right for you.
You are just one phone call away from starting your journey to the life you want.
We work with both corporate and private clients.

“A few months ago, suddenly and unexpectedly, I found myself at a personal ad professional crossroads with no idea about which path to take. Procrastination soon became my best friend-until I took some advice from a friend and has some professional coaching from Helen. I’m now happily self-employed with a clear idea of how best to develop my personal skills in the business world. It’s ben a real game changer for me, giving me the potential for a winning hand! Thank you so very much, Helen.”
