A healthy mindset and better relationships
at home, work and school

I’m Andrea, a highly experienced Coach and Mentor.

I want you to be confident, motivated, adaptable and resourceful. I also want you to be in fulfilling relationships, where people respect your individuality and you respect theirs.

Being human is hard; and relationships can be hard too. Doing either of these things well may require changing attitudes, beliefs, knowledge, skills and actions.

It may feel daunting but I can help you with every step. Currently, my youngest client is 11 and my oldest is 86, which means you’re never too young or too old to prioritise yourself and your relationships. I specialise in working with Parents and Professionals.

Andrea’s Approach
Stronger Relationships | Coaching & Mentoring

Coaching & Mentoring

Work on yourself and choose to build better relationships

The only person you can control is you. By working on yourself, you can find better ways to relate to who and what is important to you.

Changing beliefs and attitudes works by making choices, taking action, accepting responsibility for successes and failures – and then repeating the cycle again. Over time, this increases your knowledge, skills and ultimately self-worth.

The result is an authentic and psychologically healthy way of being you. Take this into your home, work and school; and see how the people around you change as a result.

I can help you get there faster and I will support you to help the important people in your life do the same. I offer online and in-person (Norwich) appointments to individuals, couples, families, and teams.

Work With Me

Ask Andrea

Can’t meet face to face?

This is an accessible place to get practical advice and emotional support by email. Ask me something and get a full response, direct to your inbox. Email support is popular for a number of reasons. Many prefer privacy. Some clients tell me they hardly ever have a moment alone. Others are time limited and some live in different time zones.

Ask Andrea is an option that gives you access to support and advice, privately. You’ll book an hour in my calendar and get an email in your inbox at the end of that hour.

Client Reviews

You are important, and I want you to invest in yourself. This means I need to give you what you want in return for your time and money. Hiring a coach is a leap of faith – it’s important to find someone who you feel safe with, and who you ‘click’ with. Here are some reviews that may help you decide whether that someone is me.

    Smart, funny, direct, deft and caring: Andrea’s approach gets through to all ages and styles – from teenagers to academics; parents to management executives; and teachers to business owners.

  • Inspirational, challenging and connecting

    Andrea was inspiring and created a safe and comforting environment. It was good to connect with myself through experiencing someone ‘be there’, in the moment, listening.

    Emma D

  • She made a difference to the relationship I have with my children

    Andrea is a voice of reason and calm. She brought me through a tough time; and reminded me of what I believe in, grounding me with accurate 'tough love' calls. I highly recommend her.


  • Highly recommend

    Andrea focuses on the relationship, which we know contains the problem. What she does is guide you back to that same place, because it also contains the solutions.

  • Parenting can be tough - get yourself the best, life-changing support you can

    This has been transformative. We've changed how our family works and I've learnt about the patterns I fall into in other relationships. It's massively empowering to find skills that bring real, positive change very quickly.


  • Andrea creates an atmosphere that is warm, caring and compassionate

    It is a safe and nurturing place, whatever your circumstances and however tough things have got. I found myself looking forward to my weekly sessions and feel very lucky to have met Andrea.


  • Straightening my head out

    I had hit an almighty low. My marriage had collapsed, business relationships were difficult and I was an emotional wreck. I had lost the will for life. Andrea has shown me a new found confidence and the ability to look positively to the future.


  • She is kind, understanding and can't be phased

    She has the ability to make what seemed so complex, understandable and simple to navigate. I thank her from the bottom of my heart and can't recommend her highly enough.

    Mindset work was very useful. It made me feel that everything can be achieved by just changing my thoughts so what I want can become a reality.

    Andrea is very welcoming and created an inclusive space in which to discuss difficulties.


  • Quickly changed things for dad/daughter

    Andrea gave me insight and communication tools to take the heat out of bedtimes and school. She is compassionate, caring and fun (and frankly underpriced for the difference she has made). I’m very particular!

    Should be compulsory for all parents. Andrea was a fantastic guide, wise and personal.

TEDx Talk

I have learnt that relationship is the best system to change behaviour

Instead of compliance and control, focus on consideration and respect. Increase emotional intelligence and help children work out problems instead of arguing about them. As your relationship grows, children will trust you, respect you and be influenced by you.
