My mission is to help you feel better, happier and more fulfilled in life.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been trying to help people feel better.

My dad died when my brother and I were both very small, and I somehow acquired the role of ‘family fixer’. I trod carefully so no one got upset, I kept the peace and was always polite, always smiling.

All these years later, and my greatest desire is still to help people get past whatever is painful in their lives. But I now understand the importance of looking after myself too, so that I can be as supportive and as strong as my clients need me to be.

Certified Life Coach and qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist.

Before starting Mind Shift Coaching, I spent nearly ten years coaching people who wanted to lose or manage their weight. The amazing testimonials I got back from clients, whose lives had changed for the better, reaffirmed my mission to help people find happiness.

So, in 2008, I studied for a Life Coaching Diploma. This gave me the skills to help a wider range of people looking to discover new, positive ways to approach their personal or professional lives.

Hungry to learn more, I enrolled on the Ali Campbell training courses for Hypnotherapy, NLP and Life Coaching. Ali is a world-renowned Life Coach, whose techniques are tried, tested and proven to bring exceptional results. The work I did with my clients was all based on his ‘Inside Out’ approach.

Not content to leave my studies there (I had a bit of an obsession with training courses), I undertook an Advanced Hypnotherapy course with the Surrey College of Clinical Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy. I completed this in January 2020, alongside a number of additional qualifications, and have since developed a much deeper understanding of hypnotherapy – in particular, the how and why it works.

I empower women to become the person they were always meant to be.

Seeing my clients evolve into freer, happier, stronger people and living the life that was always meant to be theirs brings me huge joy and satisfaction.

If you have failed to find happiness in a new pair of shoes or a new relationship or a job promotion, I’d love to help you.

Together we can work on changing your mindset from ‘I’ll be happy when…’ to ‘I am happy now’. Because when you rely on external or material things to fuel your satisfaction in life, you put your happiness on hold – possibly forever.

A place for you to talk freely, without fear of judgement.

My coaching and therapeutic techniques are based on the ‘Inside Out’ approach, along with the strategic interventions taught and endorsed by the Surrey College of Clinical Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy. This means asking you to look inwardly. And to consider your thoughts, emotions and feelings as you process certain situations in your life.

But don’t worry – it’s not as intimidating as it sounds. Instead, you might want to think of it as visiting a friend. Just like a friend, I’m here to listen and provide gentle guidance, no matter what your concerns may be.

My goal is to make you feel comfortable, confident and help you find the path to becoming the person you were always meant to be.

“Judy is amazing – her knowledge, kindness, empathy and skill makes you feel completely at ease and in very safe hands. I would highly recommend her. Judy has helped me enormously with phobias and my eating issues which have been lifelong. My life is richer for knowing and having the benefits of sharing time with Judy.”
