Wilma is a Growth and Performance coach with a passion for making sure ordinary doesn’t stand a chance and a philosophy for Being At The Cottage to make a difference with the people who are making a difference, across the world.

When you take someone out of their usual working environment, leaving behind the status and trappings of office, you are presented with the human being. When you work with Wilma, there is no them and us. It’s just about being human.

Wilma works with innovators, entrepreneurial thinkers and leaders who have a vision for change and are committed to making a difference within their organisations and around the world. Her clients are often mavericks, but always people who are committed to consciously develop and evolve in order to pursue their extraordinary ‘thing’.

Adept at taking clients well beyond the scope of their usual self-interrogation, Wilma will unhesitatingly challenge assumptions and beliefs in order to disrupt any conditioned thoughts, helping you to sculpt the fragments of insights gleaned while at the cottage, 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.”

Wilma has a life-long fascination with the power of the mind, thought and events born from synchronicity. This was kindled in the mid-1980s while she and her husband took 4 years out to travel the world by motorbike.  Ever since then she has continued to read and study the influences of the conscious and sub-conscious mind on human development and behaviour and her fascination with human endeavour and achievement has continued 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

Wilma is a creator.  She was captivated by the simply-made and beautiful bowls and baskets, the world over. After returning to the UK when the travelling was over, she moved to the cottage and taught herself the ancient skill of coiling with clay, and her work has been exhibited and sold across the UK.

She has an intimate understanding of what her clients experience while being at the cottage as she lived and worked alone from there for 7 years, 5 of them before electricity was installed.

An accredited Personal Performance Coach since 2008, NLP Master Practitioner and Master Spiritual Practitioner, aside from coaching, Wilma loves to walk or run in the Black Mountains, garden and practice aikido and qigong. She has a well-developed sense of the ridiculous, which often drives her creativity, and loves to laugh.
