Training for the mind

with Michelle Burrows

What is Coaching?

Coaching is essentially training for the mind. Just like many people use personal trainers to help them improve their fitness and physical performance, many today use coaches to help them achieve personal and professional goals. Mindset coaching helps anybody who is committed to making changes by bridging the gap from where they are now to where they want to be.

Coaching is both positive and future focused. Rather than focusing on the past and ‘why’ certain things didn’t pan out, coaches look to help create the best possible future for their clients focusing on ‘how’ and ‘when’ they are going to achieve their aspirations and making those dreams a reality.

Building blocks of coaching

How does it work?

I begin every coaching programme with assessing a person’s current situation.

Once I have a clear picture of where the person is in their life right now and where they want to be, I use a variety of techniques, including neuro-linguistic programming exercises to uncover the (sometimes hidden) obstacles that are preventing the person from achieving their desired goals.

I am able to support clients in not only becoming more aware of their sub-conscious beliefs but in developing more supportive and highly empowering beliefs that will serve to propel them towards action and fulfilling their ambitions.

During each session, I work with the individual to identify steps to move them closer forward to where they want to be, as well as experience more enjoyment in their lives right now. In coaching, we ‘begin with the end in mind’, but it is often the journey to get there that leads to those crucial insights and realisations (the ‘lightbulb’ moments) which results in increased confidence and enjoyment of life.

All work is conducted in a confidential and non-judgmental manner and essential for me is the creation of a safe space in which clients feel they are fully listened to and can get the encouragement they need to move forward in the fastest and most empowering way.

I offer a range of sessions and packages to suit your needs. Please feel free to contact me to discuss any questions you may have or if you would like to tailor a programme for you. All sessions and packages are payable in advance via direct bank transfer. Please also note, that bookings cannot be confirmed until payment has been received.

An initial complimentary 15 minute chat

This is a friendly chat to discuss your needs and any questions you have about coaching, designed to help you decide if coaching is right for you. It’s very important to me that we ensure that coaching is the right fit for where you are in your life right now and so, there is genuinely no obligation thereafter to commit to coaching nor do I make the assumption at any point that you will become a client. Please email me your contact details and a brief description of your needs and I will get back to you.

…gain my self control back…

Originally not a believer that coaching would help me, Michelle’s sessions have really helped to turn my life around. I have Trichotillamania (TTM) and pull my own hair. I go through many periods of self doubt and often feel out of control when it comes to my pulling. Michelle’s coaching sessions have helped me to gain my self control back and really focus on my willpower not to pull. This isn’t easy by any means, and I still have a long way to go, but her facilitation and ability to listen have helped me reach my own desitnation when it comes to my own personal goals. I am yet to be pull free, I have been doing this for over ¾ of my life, but at least I have now established some form of control. Michelle has enabled me to hold myself accountable for what I am doing and I feel a lot stronger and my drive to succeed has been increased.

Michelle really helps me to get to the point of my issues and makes me challenge my own beliefs and decisions. She enables me to feel like I really can deal with my own demons and I feel so much more positive about myself once I leave a session. The best thing of all, is that I know I have achieved this myself and it is Michelle’s talent for enabling me to lead myself to the right direction and giving me the relevant prompts that have assisted me to reach my current position.

Following my experiences with Michelle, I would now recommend coaching to anyone, particularly those with TTM as this has helped me exponentially.


…more importantly, enjoyable…

I have worked with a couple of coaches before I teamed up with Michelle. What sets her apart from others is her calm methodical approach, using a variety of techniques, and her ability to get to the nub of the problem. I have found every session really helpful but, more importantly, enjoyable. Nothing it seems is insurmountable for this thoughtful and insightful individual; even down to improving one’s image and self-confidence. The sessions in the gym were particularly imaginative – Michelle even got me enjoying strengthening and boxing. She complemented these sessions with a bespoke dietary program. I have genuinely benefited from my coaching experience with Michelle and can thoroughly recommend her.



Michelle was superb in asking probing yet empathetic questions that encouraged me to examine how I felt about my career promotion and why I lacked confidence in my own abilities even with this clear endorsement from my work hierarchy. More importantly, she enabled me to construct a series of clearly defined and timebound goals for me to positively reinforce my self-confidence. The coaching sessions were not easy, as deeply examining my self-image and self-worth was an emotional process; Michelle’s calm and reassuring presence throughout helped me to explore my negative language and begin to re-frame my thoughts about myself more positively. Following Michelle’s coaching sessions, I was much better prepared to attend the training course with a positive attitude and a clear focus on what I wished to achieve during the year, both for my career and my personal development. The coaching she provided was invaluable and continues to enable me to reset my thoughts when I become overly critical or negative of my achievements.


Her can-do, positive attitude is infectious

Michelle is great to work with. Her can-do, positive attitude is infectious. Michelle is very thorough and challenges you to go above and beyond in every way.


…excellent at explaining…

As a busy working mother of 2, whose husband was often out of the country, I sought information from Michelle about coaching as I was was aware that it was a tool that people were using but I was unsure of how it could benefit me. Michelle was excellent at explaining the role of coaching and what it could and could not do. Her ability to easily build rapport easily was evident and made our sessions productive.

Due to my moving work locations not long after I initiated the coaching sessions with Michelle, I could only take part in 2 sessions, but they were all I needed to reinvigorate my sense of purpose and understand the benefit of taking time for self reflection and setting goals. Although this takes time – which I initially thought I didn’t have – having time with Michelle to think clearly and set attainable goals, actually made me more productive and enabled me to actively pursue additional past times and voluntary activities that I had previously placed in the ‘too busy’ box! After only 2 sessions, I felt that my self awareness and motivation had been significantly lifted.


…lasting positive impact…

I have to say that the session had a lasting positive impact on me, and on my opinion of myself and what I’m capable of. Michelle listened attentively and I felt she expertly guided the session to achieve the right balance of letting me talk as long as I needed to, whilst keeping the conversation on track. She helped me to realise that the workload I had at the time was actually something to feel very proud of, rather than beat myself up that I wasn’t doing enough and needed to do more. She helped me consider my goals and break them down in to more manageable chunks, and helped show me some ideas of how to manage my time more effectively in order to achieve my goals. Unfortunately I then left the country for a year so I was unable to continue the sessions, however, I am now in a position where I am putting it all in to practice and I have never forgotten the coaching I had from Michelle and am implementing the above elements now. I am confident that I am firmly on my way to achieving the main goal that I set out for myself during our session, and if all goes to plan it will be achieved in the next six months.
