Find direction…….. for a working life that matters

Build the confidence, clarity and courage to live a joyful and purposeful life

I’m Jeanette White and I’m a specialist women’s coach. If you’ve ever thought….”surely there has to be more to life than this!” and are ready to figure out what that is for you, then let’s talk about how I can help. 


Get in touch

Are you ready to step out of the shadows? Let me help you find the way.

Helping You Move Forward 

Do you feel like it’s time to live a bigger life, one that feels like it MATTERS, but can’t seem to find a way?

I help women who are feeling stuck and are questioning what they want to do with the next 20 years of their life and beyond. I help you to get moving again by taking you through a proven, step-by-step process to get clear on what is important, understand what you believe to be true (and how this might be helping or hindering your development) and what gives you a sense of purpose and fulfilment, so you can live a life that really MATTERS to you. 

We start by exploring where you are now and figuring out who you want to be moving forwards- so we are 100% clear on what “a life that MATTERS” means to you.  

“What will work look like? Where do I want my business to go? In what areas of my life do I want more fulfilment? What needs to change? What is stopping me?”

Then we find ways to clear space in your life to work on the things that you most want to change, building strategies to capitalise on your skills, experience and strengths, and challenging and managing the things that have been holding you back.

I help you explore. I encourage you. I believe in you and your potential, unconditionally.

What To Expect

A safe space

You are unique. I provide a safe and empowering space for you to identify the ways that you want to improve your life and then create goals that are positive, future focussed and inspiring. I help to break down these goals into manageable steps to support your transition from where you currently are, to where you want to be. You will identify what’s getting in the way of you living your best life and develop strategies to help you overcome these obstacles. You get to dream!

Deep non judgemental listening

My focus is always on your needs. I listen to what you say (and what you don’t say) and offer challenging and thought provoking questions to help you develop a deeper understanding of yourself. I will also challenge your perspective, helping you to step outside of your comfort zone.


It’s time for you to gather up the reins! Coaching is different from counselling where sessions focus mainly on the person’s past in order to bring about understanding and healing. It is also different from mentoring or advice – my goal is not to tell you what you should do or how to live your life. It’s about being a facilitator that empowers you to identify the changes that you would like to make and then helping you through the process of achieving these goals.

Take action to Get results

Coaching with me gets results. Every day we all make choices about what we do or don’t do. Each of these choices (no matter how small) will affect the results that we get in life which therefore influences how fulfilled or unfulfilled we go on to feel. I help you to identify your core values (what’s really important to you), which enables you to make wiser choices and ultimately create a more effective, balanced and fulfilling life, or whatever your goals are for yourself. 

You get to create what you want!

There’s always going to be an excuse to delay.  Why wait? By reaching out to me I will meet you exactly where you are and help you to move forward, towards your goals and towards a life that brings you excitement, joy and satisfaction; a life where you get to live into your potential.

Have a question

Or just want to get in touch?

Choosing a coach is a very individual thing. It’s important to gather as much information about a prospective coach as you can.

There are many ways to do this- book a discovery call, message or email me or pick up the telephone. Of course you can’t beat personal recommendations. When you are ready, reach out.
