Hi I’m Bridgette,
I help individuals and businesses to remove the fear and transform their lives. I look at how they can build resilience and overcome resistance, introducing them to strategies to help them sustain a more positive mindset.
I use a blend of coaching, yoga and mindfulness approaches, together with my extensive experience in change. Working together, we build lasting wellbeing cultures that benefit both their personal and professional life.
- Motivating aspiring leaders, business owners and change teams. Helping them get really clear about the changes they want to make.
- Improving understanding and implementing strategies to help businesses prioritise wellbeing.
- Helping staff feel heard, understood and valued. Reducing the fear, stress and overwhelm of relentless change.
That’s where I hope I can help you. It all starts with a conversation. Confidential, safe and free from pressure. If you’re interested, I’d be happy to have a chat with you.
New clients can book a free one-to-one networking call, a free 30 minute coaching chemistry call or a free 15 minute yoga 'get-to-know-you' session. Find out how I can help you find your way. It all starts with a free, confidential, no pressure conversation.
Returning clients have the option of choosing a paid 60 minute, 90 minute or 2 hour coaching call.
I inspire individuals and businesses to navigate change, while boosting wellbeing.
People often ask… “Bridgette, what do you really do?” Increasingly I find job titles don’t actually mean a lot to my potential clients: Transition or Life Coach, Business Change Communications Specialist, Freelance Consultant, Wellbeing Professional… the people I help often don’t know what those roles really involve.
I help you take the stress out of change, reducing fear and anxiety. Inspiring you to feel well-resourced. Equipping you with approaches, techniques and skills to help you manage relentless change.
Coaching and Yoga is a powerful combination to help you navigate change while maintaining wellbeing and a healthy mindset.
Exercise and movement have always been an important part of my personal self-care routine. In my late teens I also discovered the benefits of yoga. The sense of peace and rest it brought for my mind and soul, together with the flexibility, strength and restoration it gave my body. Over the years I tried many forms of yoga and developed a personal practice that helped me manage stress and anxiety wherever I was working or living. In 2016 I decided to deepen my practice further with teacher training and I’m currently working toward my Advanced Yoga Teacher qualification.
Keeping our mind, body and spirit in good shape is an essential factor in building resilience. In my view, our mental health and physical health are inseparable. The mind and the body are like our heart, vital ‘muscles’ they need regular, consistent attention to help them be nourished, rested, replenished and moved.
Between 2000-2005, I took a few management steps, building and managing several small communications teams. Delivering communications strategy and plans to support organisational change programmes for a small local financial services company and then onto work for Zurich in Swindon.
During my time as a change communications specialist in large corporates, my specialism became helping companies with large culture and behaviour change programmes communicate effectively with their staff. At times I realised that much of my work was moving into coaching middle managers to cope with the changes, both personally and professionally. So to develop this further, in 2010 I self-funded a Masters qualification in coaching and mentoring at Oxford Brookes University.
In 2005, I took a big leap to freelance and co-created a limited company with my husband. Working freelance to help managers, directors and leaders in the financial services, environment and FMCG sectors deliver effective communications around change. In 2012 I qualified as a coach and mentor started to use these skills to add value to behaviour and culture change programmes. Qualified as a yoga teacher in 2018. Created the vision for B Active for Change in 2019: Helping individuals and businesses navigate change, while maintaining wellbeing culture.
I currently live in Stroud, Gloucestershire and work with local, regional and national clients for their unique wellbeing, life and mindset coaching needs.
My unique coaching approach is largely client-led. The way I coach also introduces movement, breathing practices and mindfulness. I actively support my clients to move more in all aspects of their life. Try my Coaching with Yoga for a unique blend of personal and physical support techniques for a healthy mind and body.
I offer a flexible, practical, developmental approach. I use a range of innovative coaching tools and tailor strategies to client needs. My bespoke approach allows clients to discover, explore and unlock areas of their life where they have become stuck. To navigate through stress, anxiety and trauma. I help them gain a new perspective, explore options, to prioritise themselves and discover ‘what next.’
