Wilma works with leaders in the pursuit of something extraordinary

As a Growth and Performance coach I’m dedicated to supporting innovators, leaders and entrepreneurs ready to turn the spotlight on themselves, to discover how they can lead differently.

When someone is taken out of their usual working environment, leaving behind the status and trappings of office, the human being is presented. When we work together, there is no them and us. It’s all about being human.

People I work with are committed to consciously develop and evolve in order to pursue their vision.  Their commitment is to make a difference within themselves, their organisations and around the world.

Adept at taking clients well beyond the scope of their usual self-interrogation, I don’t hesitate to challenge assumptions and beliefs in order to disrupt any conditioned thoughts, guiding clients to sculpt the fragments of insights gleaned, into more than the sum of their parts.

I love being a coach.  I love the dance between listening and sensing the right time to ask another, deeper question.  To be able to ask questions that the client may never have been asked before, and the unrivalled privilege of being given the answers that make the difference for them.”

I’ve had a life-long fascination with the power of the mind, thought and events born from synchronicity. This was kindled in the mid-1980s when me and my husband took 4 years out to travel the world by motorbike.  Ever since then, I’ve gobbled up information and learned everything I could get my hands on about mind-set, personal development, awareness, the brain, the effect our thoughts have on our cells, (which is not to be ignored) and developing levels of consciousness.

I’m a personal development geek and my fascination and understanding of human endeavour and achievement continues to grow.

“Wilma is warm and witty but lets you away with nothing! She pushes you to be better than you have ever been before, and uses a range of brilliant techniques to help you dig deep and find the answers needed to unlock your creativity and success.”  
Ali Stewart Executive and Leadership Coach

We are all innately creative beings and I discovered that I am a creator on more than one level.  

I was captivated by the simply-made and beautiful vessels the world over, after returning to the UK when the travelling was over, when I moved to the cottage, I taught myself the ancient skill of coiling. My work has been exhibited and sold across the UK.

I lived and worked alone from the cottage for 7 years, 5 of them before electricity was installed, so I have an intimate understanding of the unique experience available to clients.

The skills I bring to the table are – NLP Master Practitioner and Master Spiritual Practitioner, Carbon Literacy, accredited Personal Performance Coach since 2008, author of ‘The Subtle Dynamics – The Spirit And Science Of Being At The Cottage’, as well as ‘For Leaders In The Pursuit Of Something Extraordinary – The 9 Enduring Elements (How Life Gets Easier When You Adopt These Principles’).

Aside from coaching and mentoring, I love to walk or run in the Black Mountains, continue to develop the garden at the cottage and practice aikido and qigong … and I love to laugh.

The philosophy of Being At The Cottage is to make a difference with the people who are making a difference, making sure that ordinary doesn’t stand a chance.
