Hello, I'm Vivien. I'm a Personal Development Life Coach, Career Coach and Solution Focused Therapist on a mission to empower YOU to become your best self. Together we'll increase your happiness, confidence, energy and engagement with your life and career.
I work with people who want to discover, develop and become their best self. Why? Because I realised that when you become your best self you live the life you want. You learn how to create your own happiness. You make decisions on a foundation of self-belief, not fear. You live life with purpose and energy. And you define what you want in life and go get it!
I'm a certified coach (HumanTechnics), a solution focused therapist (CPHT), an avid researcher, a positive psychology believer and a lifelong personal development advocate. The first few chapters of my personal development journey were bumpy. Yep, it wasn't pretty - low mood, anxiety, catastrophic thinking - I was living a life on a foundation of fear, listening to external expectations and internal judgement.
To the outside world I built a 'successful' career in the marketing industry - climbing the ladder fast, taking on strategic, senior leadership positions in London advertising agencies and later leading marketing departments and consultancies in Bristol. How I felt about my life was buried by what I thought my life looked like - how I was living up to expectations.
It was as I was coaching one of my team that the quote "the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results" came up - and it hit me like a smack in the face. I'd had enough of feeling that my life didn't fit me on the inside. I decided there and then to make some brave decisions to shift what I was doing - and I discovered that I had the power in me to listen to myself, cut out the chatter, be brave and build the life and the me that I wanted. I was determined to become my best self.
So I left my corporate marketing career that I'd spent a decade building. I took with me my instinct, my passion, my strengthened inner belief and my ability and joy in coaching, mentoring and motivating all the teams I've managed...and I set myself the mission to help as many people as possible to discover, explore and become their best selves. Clear, calm, confident and fulfilled.
I've picked up qualifications, knowledge, research, techniques, tools, exercises and bucket fulls of passion along the way, all of which I draw on and share in my sessions. I enjoy structured thought, with a measure of science and a good sprinkle of intuition and emotional intelligence...and I'd say that's a pretty good signpost for what our sessions will be filled with.
If you want to discover your best self, I'd love to hear from you. Get in touch for a chat, to share your journey or to book your free consultation. Looking forward to chatting with you soon.
