I’m Lorna and I am a trained coach, working with people in 1:1 coaching sessions, providing a safe and confidential space in which to explore their goals, both personally and professionally.
With great empathy and through insightful questioning I help people gain clarity and focus, to see clearly the direction that they want to head in and to define the success that they want to achieve. Gently challenging, my coaching process is solutions focused and empowers people to feel inspired, moving forward with positivity and energy.

WHAT IS COACHING?
Coaching is a series of powerful conversations in a safe, supportive and confidential space. By deep discussion and exploration around each of the areas in your life, we uncover what’s important to you, what’s working and what’s stopping you moving forward.
With curiosity, active listening and insightful questioning I use my coaching training and experience to help you understand yourself more fully, reassess and recognise your own strengths and values. With this deeper understanding comes an ability to build resilience, self esteem and self confidence.
I provide a solutions focused coaching journey over six sessions. The journey begins with an indepth discovery session and inspiring goal setting before moving on to development plans and action setting in the further sessions. It is my role as your coach to guide you, support you and challenge you, to unlock your potential and empower you to move forward with greater clarity, focus and motivation.
I am a qualified coach and member of the Association of Coaching. I'm also founder and business owner of a holiday let agency, and prior that that, I was on the management team of a brand agency, as HR & Finance Manager.
Throughout my career, my roles have been about building relationships and supporting people. My experience has taught me the importance of harnessing individual strengths and values alongside business strategic vision.
I believe strongly that everyone should have the opportunity to feel nurtured, supported and motivated within their day to day role and that businesses have a responsibility to care for their staff, providing a culture that empowers people to achieve their best both personally and professionally.
This experience and the passion that I have about my own personal growth and the growth of those in my team led me towards coaching and ultimately to train as a Coach, with Coaching Direct in Edinburgh. I'm now a fully trained coach and a member of the Association of Coaching.
I'm passionate about supporting people on their own journey to achieve fulfilment and success. My coaching style encompasses my values of empathy, integrity, focus and balance with my breadth of experience both in business and in life.
“Lorna has proved to be empowering and challenging in equal measure. Our future- focused sessions coupled with a deep dive on the EQI front, have paid dividends twice over already. Lorna's personal style and consistent encouragement helped me find clarity and instill accountability, both are invaluable to me now and for the future.”
