Rachel Redfern - Life Coach
Rachel is passionate about women fulfilling their true potential despite the rigours of living in our complex hyper connected world as a wife, mother, daughter, sibling, friend or work colleague.
The quality of our relationship with ourselves is at the core of having a fulfilling life and impacts on how we operate at home and work. When I took my own personal leap of the corporate ladder I was well practiced in the art of advising others on how to manage relationships with their clients yet had no idea of who I was and what I needed to thrive not just survive. If I had had a coach to work with I would have made more reflective decisions about what to do rather than what turned out to be an emotional leap off the diving board.
With this in mind I have trained as a Relational Dynamic Coach - running my own business and living a creative life means I think differently. I am well aware of the pressures people feel from those operating at a senior level in a global business, running a small firm or as a mother trying to make all things work in balance - because I have been there.
I am drawn to women in transition, creating businesses, balancing ambition and personal challenges.
I am an advisor to ‘Women in Technology’ and a panel coach for 'She Leads Change’ which is a perfect fit providing the opportunity to blend my business development, creative and coaching skills together to affect change".
Sessions can be 1 hour, 90 minutes or 2 hours. The length of sessions, session frequency and number of sessions are agreed with each client on an individual basis and we will discuss this before the first session.
I charge an hourly rate on a sliding scale (on request) and ask you to pay what you can afford within that scale. If you are on a low income or unemployed please email me – I offer some lower cost sessions.
You can book session by session if you prefer, or you can book to work with me for a 3 or 6 month period, this could be an initial longer session, followed by shorter sessions and could be in person or by Zoom or phone. Please contact me to find out more and we can tailor make a coaching package for you.
