be moments

There are moments in all of our lives that can change the path that we follow, either emotionally or physically. We often hear these referred to as the Defining Moments in our lives - but you can take that a step further and...


Rather than these moments being something that happened to you, you can use the moments to...




Like all of us I have had many Be Moments in my life - some of which were moments I chose, and others were thrust upon me!!  But all have taken me on a wonderful journey, both personally and professionally - and all have helped me to become the person I am today.

On a professional level I have been lucky enough to enjoy a long career which has enabled me to do the things that I love most - coaching, training and developing the people I work with.  Whilst that has not always been the main focus of my job description, it is something I chose to Be and as such is the thing that I Became.  My career has been varied - from college lecturer to national training manager; from working with staff to offering coaching, advice and training to our customers; from developing strategies and processes to being 'hands on' and leading teams; from working locally to travelling the country; from starting my career with small local companies to spending 16 years with a major FTSE 100 international organisation.  All of this has lead me to where I am today - working with both individuals and businesses to coach, train and support them to Be .......

On a personal note I live in the North East of England with my husband, gorgeous teenage daughter and 2 mad dogs. When not working or being 'taxi driver' for my daughter you will often find me at the beach or walking in the countryside with the dogs.

Both my work and my family are really important to me - and I am lucky enough to have a lifestyle where I can Be my best at both.  Or maybe it wasn't luck at all - maybe I Defined My Moments so that I could Be where I am today!!

"Thanks Jaclyn for all your help and support on my recent journey in setting up my business.  Deciding to take this next step in my life and career was a huge decision - your  optimistic, friendly and realistic approach was exactly what I needed to spur me into action."


"I decided, at the end of last year, to make some changes to my life.  My first objective was to evaluate my career.  Having being introduced to Jackie, by a mutual colleague, I knew instantly that we would get along.

Jackie set straight to work by helping me identify new opportunities, reshape my CV, provide interview techniques and how to 'professionally' present myself.

Although I haven't changed my job, this is mainly because I decided that, actually, I was in the right position, so the whole exercise was invaluable.  

Jackie is a real professional, she has a wealth of experience and knowledge and can easily identify with people, which is a rarity!"


"Over the last year I have faced a lot of changes and challenges in my life and Jaclyn has really supported me through these.  

Jaclyn's warm, friendly and professional coaching approach has helped me to overcome my fears, and achieve my goals.  Whilst I still have lots of challenges I feel ready to face them head on - the light at the end of the tunnel is now shining bright.

My initial seven sessions were quite intensive and close together which gave me the kick start I needed. Our follow-up sessions help me to keep focus and adapt to on-going opportunities that come along. This flexible approach has worked perfectly for me.

I can only speak wonders about Jaclyn and totally recommend her to anyone."
