About me

Coaching is a partnership

Fiona Powley

It’s important you choose the right person for you to take that journey with.

Coaching is a partnership.  It’s important you choose a coach who’s approach and personality work for you.  If you are ready for a good balance of challenge, support, change which lasts and a good dose of humour, you are in the right place.

The best way to tell if you’d like to work with me is to book a call.  

My beliefs:

The fears that stop you are lies. They were learned and they can be unlearned.
Everyone is doing the best they can with the resources they have available.
You are valuable, loveable and more than good enough.
You can’t change the past, but you can shift the hurt, fear and anger you’d attached to it.
Forced positive ‘thinking’ is not always helpful. All of your emotions are important.
Life is not random. We call in what we ask for, and we can learn to ask for what we really want.
When you choose to believe you can have what you want, you get to have what you want.
Beliefs are not facts. Some are untrue and limiting. Some are true and liberating.
Getting help from the right person with the right approach, changes everything.

My story: How I became a coach

My early childhood was safe but lacking love and affection.  The focus was on being independent, doing things properly and doing well at school.  The reality: I was a very lonely little girl who was severely bullied (even moved schools) and struggling with everything from school work to brownies.
