Meet Abi Hodgson

People often ask me what it was that made me decide to become a Coach.  My answer is straightforward - I love to work with people and watch them reach their full potential

Nothing is more satisfying than observing the journey that my clients take, the joy that comes from noticing the small and consistent changes that each person makes and eventually seeing their confidence increase and the achievement of their goals.

It's All About Passion

I am passionate about coaching and the benefits it can bring.  The variety of people that I get to talk to, the issues that I get to talk about and the progress and success that I get to witness are things that I place a great deal of value upon.

It is absolutely impossible for me to imagine doing anything else now - I cannot think of a single alternative that would bring such a high degree of job satisfaction.  But I haven’t always been a coach.

How Did I Get Into Coaching?

I spent over 20 years working in both the private and public sector, ultimately reaching senior management and responsible for several large teams.  But my health deteriorated and I was unable to continue.  

Diagnosed with Chronic Pain Syndrome and Fibromyalgia, it became very clear that I needed to find a way to be able to continue the elements of my professional career that I loved and thrived on, in a way that my health could accommodate.

Coaching offered that opportunity and I grabbed it with both hands.

What Makes me a Good Coach?

Honestly, I believe that I am a great coach because I have lived, I have learned and I have listened.  

I have hit rock bottom, lost myself in illness, medication and weight gain.  I have watched as my self esteem packed its bags and shuffled away.  And I have clawed my way back to the woman I wanted to be - slowly but consistently, I have rebuilt myselfand rediscovered my confidence and purpose.

And this process led me to a place where it was clear to me that I wanted to channel all of my management experience, all of my study and all of my own personal difficulty and eventual improvement into something that could help others to reach their own potential.

I believe that with the right support and a strong sense of determination, it is possible for each and everyone of us to achieve our potential.  Often, seeking a large-scale improvement feels impossible when faced alone, but with support and understanding, anything is possible.

"I have tried other coaches in the past but found that working with Abi over Skype was so much more convenient for me than face to face meetings. Abi has really helped me to understand what I want to get out of my life - especially my career and has helped me focus on how to achieve my ambitions. She is friendly, approachable and very easy to talk to. She was honest about what she felt I needed and when she felt I was ready to stop having sessions. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Abi"  Dawn, January 2018
