My name is Bernadette and earlier in my life in the corporate world, I was a top sales person in a mainly male dominated, competitive industry. I’ve experienced targets, deadlines the work hard play hard lifestyle. I worked for large PLC’s but it was when I moved into the charity sector that I felt that my skillset was making a difference to others.
I’m very fortunate to have 3 wonderfully kind and loving children (who do normal things like complain and argue too!), been able to re-train with the world-renowned Quest Institute under the tutorage of Trevor Silvester. By qualifying as a therapist/ neuro-coach I’m able to use my skills to help others which is incredibly enriching.
People say I’m tenacious – well, I am committed to my clients and their goals. I feel very privileged to be able to work with my clients, to see them make changes, become empowered and flourish. At times we have no control at what life throws at us and sometimes we need some help so we are in control to how we respond to it.
We all have our own individual life stories that can sometimes hold us back, combine that with life being busy and hectic, this can lead to a disconnection to ourselves and those around us. By listening, understanding my clients and their needs, by providing a safe space and working as a partnership it is truly wonderful to help my clients unlock their true potential, to create a life they want and have a future that inspires and excites them.
We are all fellow strugglers. I have been vulnerable, I have been stretched, I have reacted to limiting beliefs that I wasn’t aware were driving my thoughts and behaviours. I have benefited from this process and the ripples effects spread to my home life. I whole heartedly believe in the transformations that can happen which is why I love working with individuals and businesses.

Irrespective of our age, size, nationality, education, sexuality we are all human beings trying to make the best life that we can.
I feel very privileged to work with the clients that I work with, to see their transformations and the ripple effects into their wider community.
When I was 16 years old, on an evening out I met a boy who had run away from home and was living on the streets in London. We were the same age yet by chance of birth I was in a more fortunate position having a warm bed and a family to go home to.
As a result I set up a Soup Run and on a weekly basis a group of volunteers went down to help give food and clothing to the homeless. Over 20 years later this soup run is still running and spreading the love.
So, where possible I try to do what’s in my control even if its a small contribution. The energy used for this site is 100% renewable energy – will that change the world, no, but I’m doing my little bit and it all adds up. Just like The Starfish story you can’t make a difference to everyone but to those you do, it’s worth it.
We’ve all got a past and no one is perfect…I think the phrase “we are all imperfectly perfect!” – is perfect! Our past is experience and doesn’t need to define us.
