Since I made the changes I wanted in my life in 2016, I am now a qualified Mindfulness Coach and Mindfulness in the Workplace trainer.
Prior to that I was a Senior Finance Leader in a number of Global Corporate Organisations leading large teams of people though significant change and I am also a Chartered Accountant having experience in Professional Practice . I loved the people aspect of my roles and really enjoyed coaching and mentoring my teams seeing them grow and develop.
I have personal experience of working in and managing change in high-pressured corporate environments and understand the pressures especially in times of change .
I have had some fantastic experiences but I didn't feel that I was being my authentic self and after experiencing Coaching and Mindfulness myself, finally found the clarity I needed and made the changes I wanted to live my authentic life. I understand the challenges and am now helping others to live the life they want , finding balance, improving wellbeing and achieving their goals.
On a personal level, I am down to earth, supportive with a sense of fun and live in Sherfield on Loddon, North Hampshire and Canford Cliffs in Dorset with my husband.
I am a competitive figure skater and love being outdoors especially by the sea and love most forms of exercise especially dance , spin, yoga and of course, meditation practice.
"I would absolutely recommend Hazel ,she is personable, professional and makes you extremely comfortable. I have actually been referred in the past for counselling and now recognise in many areas it wasn’t counselling I needed but a Coach!! My overall confidence/ belief in myself has improved greatly. This has improved my self-belief "
"My confidence levels have literally improved 100%. I can also see the positives in myself and have actually started to like myself, believe me that is amazing to say!!"
"Hazel’s ability to listen and make me feel totally comfortable to talk about things I believed was meaningless and stupid! The most important strength is the ability to make me feel comfortable and look at myself in a different way."
"One of my key takeaways is how Hazel coached me to recognise the type of negative language I use towards myself and think around how I can change this being more positive. Hazel has also helped me cope with stress realising the importance of maintaining a healthy work/life balance".
"A friendly, non-judgemental listener. Played back comments to help me think things through and work out what my options were. Hazel helped me to think about realistic and achievable goals. I had opportunity to feed-back on what I had chosen to do and whether things had worked out and what I may do differently in the future.
I was surprised at unravelling my thoughts and some of the things I thought were obstacles were actually my excuses. My nature to please others at my own expense was and still is a stumbling block. Now I have more clarity, I am working on it. I do need to say no sometimes. My needs are important and I can prioritize them!
I would recommend Hazel. Her calm, measured approach is very helpful. Also, her ability to help unravel thoughts and recap at the end of each session on the main points raised. Hazel gave me confidence in my ability to resolve issues. Not in the way I initially thought. I need to think about meeting my needs!"
"Hazel was very encouraging and helped me realise that I was doing a lot of thinking between our sessions by managing to draw out and articulate my thoughts in a way which I was unable to do. She helped translate my thinking into defined statements such as what things are non-negotiable to me, what I could do to feel more comfortable in certain situations etc.
I would recommend Hazel very highly, she is quick to establish a rapport, very easy to talk to, friendly, incredibly professional and helped me to get result the result I was looking for.
Hazel has an organised approach, is highly emotionally intelligent, a good listener, empathetic and knows the right questions to ask. She is confident, professional and authentic."
