Life coaching is currently unregulated in the UK. There are independent coaching bodies such as the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) or the European Mentoring and Coaching Council but anyone can work as a life coach if they want to.

I don’t know a problem that hasn’t been helped or even solved thanks to some endorphins. I was very late to the party when it comes to exercise. In fact, I was a real hater when I saw people showing off their ‘gains’ on here – ‘fucking show offs, I’ll never be like them’. Now look at me! In my late twenties, I found myself getting anxiety quite a lot, and instead of turning to prescribed medication I decided to bite the bullet and try the one thing I never had. Exercise. On the days I went hard I could feel that I was a much better version of myself that day! My anxiety basically disappeared and I was hyped! Once I got over the mental and physical line of walking through the doors of my local gym, something shifted in my mindset and here we are. My name is Sarah and I’m an exercise convert and for really good reasons. The mental gains I get from working out have a hugely positive impact on both my business and my relationships with my family – the level of buzz and mental resilience I get from a good sweat session I directly attribute to my success now. I literally see every workout as money coming into my account. The power of getting sweaty and pushing your mind and body is insanely good for you, from lifting your mood to pushing your mindset. People ask me a lot about burnout, ‘how can you manage the long days you do and still have all the energy you do?!’ Well, a morning cardio session will propel you through a day like you wouldn’t believe, especially when you fucking LOVE what you do. If you can do morning cardio (in whatever form works for you), before the world is banging at your door and your inbox is screaming at you, you will be able to prioritise like a ninja and you’ll be amazed at what creative solutions and ideas drift into your brain as you’re working out/walking/skating etc. Also, no problem gets solved sat at a desk trying to solve it, if you’re struggling to find a solution to something, get up, get moving, get your heart rate up and let your mind wander. Trust me you’ll soon see the magic in getting sweaty💦 . . . . . #successfulwomen #femaleentrepreneurs #businesswomen #femalefounders #womeninbiz #femalebusinessowner #startupcoach
I went straight from school into work and now I want something a bit more fulfilling. I know what I want to do – I want to set up a consultancy which helps other businesses become more environmentally friendly – but I can't see an easy way of making that happen as it's not my current field. That's why I started paying for online courses to help.
The boardrooms of FTSE 100 companies, where the real money is, are still as difficult for most people to get into as they ever were.
