with pom poms!
Choose to live with joyful flying colours!
You may think of 'treating yourself' as getting your hair done, going to get a massage or hiring a personal trainer?
A lot of that changes your outside, but how do you pamper and transform your inner world?
How can you calm the confusing overwhelming snowglobe confetti in your mind to feel tranquil, sorted and in the easy flow of life?
Sure you can try to do it all by yourself, but it's SO much more fun and so much easier when you have a cheerleader* coach on and by your side!
I describe coaching like a personal trainer for your life. Getting to where you want to be in life is so much more enjoyable and effective with someone in your corner cheering you on (pom poms included)*!
(The picture above isn't me, it's of a wonderful human being spending time with me, if you don't read the rest of this page, key takeaway is: we have fun together and get results!)
What drew you here?
Who am I and why choose me as your coach?
Hi, I'm Natasha, pleased to meet you!
Coaching is a very personal process: you invest, you share, you change. Therefore, it's important you find the right fit for you.
What are my USPs?
We get results whilst having fun together! I design it to be an enjoyable process, otherwise what's the point? Life is too short for that. I care about you and you feeling good. I really do! I love to help, especially those wanting to get results in a friendly, feel-good, fun way. We will use games and interactive activities to get results, all without it feeling like work. Humour and laughter is actively encouraged! If you're a bit quirky, we're kindred spirits! I've always been a bit 'quirky' and I'm proud of it! If you're a bit different too, a bit of a rebel, and don't like to follow all the society status quos then great! Let's make the world more accepting of all types. I'm not afraid to be silly and squelchy playing in the mud together.
I love seeing the journeys my crew go on and how transformed they are by the end: lit up, full of energy and enthusiasm, using empowered words with confident body language, without even being aware of their sparkly vibes: confident go-getters living their best authentic lives!
I believe in you (and I believe in magic)! You rock and you might not even know yet what a wonderful ball of stardust you are! Using kindness and authenticity, I actively listen, and have the best intentions, encouraging you to be the real you, the best you, without masks, filters, 'shoulds' or 'oughts'. I have complete faith you will get there and I'm excited for your journey! I'm there to splosh around in the mud with you and watch magic grow from it. I'm fully inclusive to all genders, backgrounds, orientations, cultures, all I seek is commitment, kindness and curiosity, and acknowledgement of my "We are and we rock" founding values in return.
It's all about you! (as McFly said). You choose, you're in control. Everything is an invitation, I'm here to facilitate your transformation. I value open, honest conversations to work together to get the best results. I tailor my approach to your unique self and we explore together what special combination will unlock your true potential, experimenting is part of the fun!
We keep things interesting. Love to talk? Me too, I also love to listen and I'm incurably curious. I love to ask questions! I ask questions to help you think in different ways. Sometimes, it's hard to express what you want to in words and therefore we use movement, music, sounds, visualisation, storytelling, nature, mark making too. I use my intuition and open, honest conversations to adapt to what you need in the moment: feeling stuck and trapped? Let's go for a walk. Feeling like you don't have the words? Let's talk in gibberish and shake it off. Whilst not a therapist, I borrow techniques from art therapy, poetry therapy, nature and walking therapy, holistic therapy, aromatherapy, movement, play and music therapy to get results.
You're in safe hands. Along with caring about you, I'm both qualified and constantly developing, which is vital. I have hours of training and certification in wellbeing coaching, laughter yoga, happiness, facilitation, mindfulness, kindfulness, mindful self compassion and much more including seemingly unrelated topics like etiquette: I'm a pro at croquet and walking with a teacup on my head! Importantly, I don't think I'm the end result, I'm not the guru or expert, you are, and so like a sponge or a "course junkie" as I was once described, I love to continually expand my knowledge and share it with you! Rest assured, you can relax.

*Not all coaches have pompoms. I do however - and whooping cheer for you, lots of it, I sadly cannot (yet?) do cheerleader acrobatics like the splits and cartwheels. I learned how to hula hoop though, which I was pretty impressed by!
What comes to mind when you imagine your "best life?
How would you like to celebrate together as you take action and achieve?
Friendly, feel-good, fun 1:1 coaching options
Let's get straight into it, there are two options for 1:1 coaching with me...
Friendly, feel-good, fun life check
£150 for a single, one off session
This is if you're the sort of person who likes to dip a toe in first, to see what a coaching session is like with me and want to get a bit of a scan over your life and what area needs a bit more attention to bring more ease, flow and joy to your world.
Sessions are typically up to 1.5 hours and done remotely. If you want face to face in a Central London location (once lock down has eased off), this will be slightly more to account for travel time, convenience and any venue costs.
Coaching works best when you have a series of coaching sessions as it means you can have accountability and see how you progress over the weeks. I love building a relationship and celebrating your wins with you, so investing in yourself with a package brings back much better results.
'Personal cheerleader' package
£700 for coaching with me over 12 weeks**
This is a combination of all my skills tailored purely to you and your particular challenge(s).
Using a friendly, feel-good and fun slant, we look at your problems from different angles to unpick and transform.
Using kindness, curiosity and open questions we delve into the heart of your blocks and trasnform them piece by piece in a friendly, feel-good, fun way, to reveal a clear path forward to elevate your levels of all the good stuff: ease, flow and joy.
Previous clients leave sessions feeling released from their limitations, motivated and uplifted.
I offer my whole toolkit of techniques and activities to serve you.
To be clear, instead of a traditional coacing "free discovery session," I offer the chance to have a quick chat on the phone so you can hear my voice and ask any extra questions I haven't covered on this page. I put my prices online to be open, honest and not waste our time with extravagant sales pitches, that's not my style. Life's too short!
No vat applicable.
**'Personal cheerleader' package comes with...
A mix of coaching, mentoring and sharing a wide mix of insight gained from a broad range of training over the years.
Six dedicated 1:1 sessions by video call suggested fortnightly to allow time to absorb and optimise the impact and momentum. Typically up to 1.5 hours per session, with some flex.
Option to be recorded for you if you would prefer to listen back after. I may do this for certain snapshots of exercises anyway.
Light email/instagram support in between our live sessions.
*Complete pom pom cheerleading and belief in you! I will whoop and cheer for you, I have pom poms I can wiggle and dance with, I sadly cannot (yet?) do advanced cheerleader moves, most recently I attempted a roly poly (forward roll) where I forgot to take out my pola dot clip-in hair bow, and squashed it flat, sad times!
My complete commitment to you and your journey.
I will keep an eye out for tools to help you and give you pointers.
I really do have your back and want the best for you and will think of you and strive to provide even more ongoing value in between our calls as the opportunity presents itself.
Where relevant, and with your permission, promoting your projects and dreams in my newsletter and future interviews/podcasts.
I say I connect, so if I feel like a connection would be valuable, I will make it.
Flexibility, the packages are completely tailored to you including activities, we can also make the sessions more intense if you would prefer weekly slots.
Ongoing support options - once the batch is complete, much like a personal trainer, after seeing the positive impact of coaching sessions with me, many of my crew ('clients' feels a bit clinical, I prefer a pirate crew!) continue with further blocks of sessions to keep progressing and feel supported.
Payment plans are available and I also have occasional openings for those who are in need and don't currently have the full resources, if this is you get in touch.
3 simple steps to progress
Check whether my style and vibe feels like it's a good fit for you, hopefully it does if you've got this far! There are further questions answered below too, and the rest of this website to give you a flavour.
Drop me an email or direct message me on instagram to arrange a no-pressure free chat by phone or video chat (preferred with whatsapp video or zoom so we can see faces and body language) to answer any of your questions, discuss what you're looking for and how I can help you get to where you want to get to, and importantly check we click - chemistry is so important in coaching! See above re no complicated sales pitches, prices are published here, no hidden extras.
From that, if we match, we book a time slot in, organise payment up front, I send you the information including questionnaire to get to know you better and off we go! Whoop whoop! Super ease-y, flowy and full of joy!
Time to treat yourself and feel more ease, flow and joy inside as well as out.
Questions you may be pondering...
How is having a coach different from chatting to a friend?
Good question, and one I get asked a lot. It's different, believe me! ...Not to say we can't be friends too though.
Imagine this, 100% 'YOU time'...
Complete and utter dedicated time Just. For. You.
Just. FOR. YOU.
No interruptions or hijacking, no "that reminds me of a time when I" stopping you mid flow of your gigantic breakthrough moment.
Instead, it's time to REALLY be listened to.
And importantly listened to by the right person, someone who is trained...
How is having a coach different from seeing a therapist?
I am most definitely not a therapist, and it's important you know that from the start, even though I have touched upon many forms and incorporate elements into my work.
Coaching is about being in the present and looking forward.
A coach is someone to support you, to hold space for you to reflect, to reflect back and celebrate your successes, no matter how big or seemingly small.
Someone to hold you accountable in a kind, loving way. Someone to ask the right question, at the right time, that unlocks something inside and leads to that real "AHA" moment!
Someone to remind you of your value, your worth, someone to believe 100% that you can, and to help you break your dream down into practical little chunks so that you can feel the change in you, in your confidence, in your self belief.
Someone to stand by the side as you make each breakthrough with a set of metallic blue pom poms* air punching the air with pride at how far you've come, and importantly remind you of it as you progress onwards and upwards.
How is having a coach different to a mentor?
In "pure" coaching, the coach never gives any advice, it's all about open questions to help your breakthrough.
I work in a blended way where, as long as it works for you, if I know of a book, theory or other resource, I think might be of interest, I will share it.
I tend to work more on the coaching side than the mentor side as I don't ever claim to be an expert in any area - you are the expert of yourself, but I also prefer to share and connect rather than sit on a potential goldmine biting my tongue.
What can your coaching help me with?
I support you to move from what causes you pain and question 'what if?'
to a place of EASE, FLOW AND JOY
Do you feel disconnected? Bored? Stuck? Lonely? Restless? Blocked? Overwhelmed? Shy? Nervous? Are you an overthinker? A worrier? Do you live for the weekend or the next holiday? Are you worn out? Exhausted? Scared that this might be it? Worried life is passing you by? Do you feel like a zombie? Like everyone else knows a secret you're missing? Do you sleepwalk through life, get on the ratrun wake up and ten years have passed?
Do you secretly yearn for more connection, colour and adventures? Do you want to enjoy life to the full and achieve those things you only dream of?
My unique coaching style helps kind and curious folk with a range of problems including:
Feel life's too complex
Wanting more opportunities to smile and laugh
Overthinking and overanalysing
Lack of confidence
Comparisonitis (particulary with social media)
Big shadows and loud inner critics
Insecurity around body image and self worth
Low self esteem
Work and career worries
Spinning lots of plates
Reliance on external factors for validation
Crossroads of life with lots of choices
Feel like the fun is missing in their life
Feeling like they've lost their way
Lost their mojo
Boredom / stuck in a rut
Want to do something but scared
Confusion in direction
Feeling a lack of time for themsleves / time management worries
Wanting to create more
And there will be other challenges, get in touch and let's chat and if I feel I can't help, I can help refer you to someone else.
Will coaching solve all my problems?
I'm not a therapist and if I feel you would benefit from other professional help we'll discuss that.
As importantly, coaching relies on you having the motivation, dedication and commitment to put the actions into place. You need to be committed to make the changes.
Like a personal trainer, I'm not going to do the sit ups for you.
I guide and support and help you find the best way to get the results you're looking for. For this to work you'll need to take action, it doesn't have to be scary, even tiny 1% shifts will take you to whole new spaces.
'Success' means different things to different people, we'll start by working out what it looks like for you.
Whatever you choose to call me: Life coach, Wellbeing coach, Intuitive coach, Happiness coach, Creative coach, Personal cheerleader, Natasha...
I'm here to listen and help you through gentle questions and support to unlock all your hidden treasures. I will help highlight those all important connections and reveal those golden breakthroughs. Here are two questions for you:
Who do you work with?
I work best with...
kind and curious people who are committed and open to trying something new.
I like to speak (and listen to) words that a 5 year old would understand, no jargon, not fancy pants adult bamboozling language. Clear communication is key. The more fun and imaginative the better e.g. instead of "clients" I prefer "crewmates" on our joint voyage, instead of a "discovery call" we have a good old natter aka casual chat, instead of goals we talk about your dreams, instead of "resources" I have a sparkly treasure trove.
I believe 'We are and we rock'
We are ...
Wonderful if you are a bit quirky, a bit different, a bit of a rebel.
Even better if you also want a better world with more kindness, generosity, care for ourselves, our community and our planet.

Can you give me some examples of successes?
Example Crewmate #1 wanting to create their own 6 steps to sunshine:
We looked at their current anxious, heavy, fraught situation filled with negative bias, and we tested small easy to put into practise steps to help them feel lighter and more buoyant. They surprised themself with their ability to excel and actively invite more good into their life.
Using theory and practical exercises from wellbeing coaching, positive psychology, science of happiness and wellbeing, mindfulness, gratitude and (with their buy in) laughter yoga and gibberish, I helped them create their own toolkit for greater happiness and wellbeing. This included a lasting physical "Good Vibes Board" to act as an every day cheerleader.
Example Crewmate #2 wanting to unlock their creative confidence:
They came to me from a place of no confidence: no confidence to create, to stand up and be seen, to share or to rate themselves. They wanted to creating a life they love with confidence: creating outputs and creating impact, but found they had blocks to overcome: fear, imposter syndrome, limiting beliefs.
They didn't believe they were capable of being creative in certain areas, and thought they were creative in only one medium, but were curious about broadening their experience and found themselves stuck.
Creativity is more than art, it is making anything new in the world that didn't exist before, including your life.
Using sensory science, playful methods and games including gibberish, art, poetry, storytelling and puppetry, I helped them put the fun back into making things, and ultimately sharing to make a difference in other people's lives. It was such a joy to see their confidence build, their language change, their body language shift, and them share their work proudly with the world.
Example Crewmate #3 wanting to rediscover what brings them joy:
Feeling invisible, they came to me wanting to rediscover their identity away from parent, spouse, worker and rediscover their true essence, their purpose, their calling and their gift. We worked together to explore what brought them joy, and their passions to enjoy the process of finding themselves again. They learned how to set boundaries, how to be selfish, how to let go of guilt, take themselves on dates, listen to their inner selves and transform the critical inner voices.
Using journalling, affirmations, curious adventures, playing with language, we energised, inspired and created a great role model for their children, actively demonstrating how taking on new roles doesn't mean eroding their own core identity.
Can you show the change in their own words?
The impact of coaching with me
"I started working with Natasha at the beginning of a big change in my life and I was feeling lost and confused, I was also feeling disconnected with my creative and playful part and this was blocking me even more!
I had mind blowing sessions with Natasha! Lots of 'aha' moments! Her approach is compassionate, playful and patient, and also, through smart questions and exercises she managed to connect me with my inner true self and she woke up that part of me that wants to play, feel good, to feel joy and happiness. This is so important! I highly recommend to work with Natasha!"
