I came to Bernie at a point in my life where I felt I’d tried everything (including moving from one end of the country to the other), in what seemed a futile, life-long effort to finally and simply ‘like’ myself. I met this amazingly caring and inspirational woman at the point in my life where I felt all hope was lost. That sounds over dramatic but I know it to be true. After a few sessions one to one with Bernie, I felt a very positive change/shift happen. Rather than re-hashing all the bad stuff that had happened in my life, she focused on building my self worth and giving me the tools to continue that building..exercises that I could do post sessions. The work with Bernie set me on a different path, one that includes gratitude and hope and means that I can now look at myself in the mirror and think ‘you’re OK, keep going’. I have recommended her to a close friend and would certainly do so again, in a heartbeat. North Berwick is so lucky to have this wonderful lady in it’s midst. Thank you for believing in me Bernie.
Bernie provides a gentle safe environment for her coaching sessions. it often feels like she shines a light on issues that need exploration and then guides me forward to discover the next steps.

I’ve laughed more since seeing Bernie.
” Bernie is a wonderful host providing delicious healthy snacks, juices and soup throughout the day. I found the experience to be thought- provoking, mood enhancing and therapeutic. It encouraged me to take time out of a busy lifestyle to contemplate and appreciate my life. I left with less negativity and a strong sense of gratitude for my health, family, friends and the fulfilment I get from my work. Ten days on this feeling is still with me. I highly recommend attending this workshop.”

“I was delighted to get the chance to go on the 2 day course ‘ love the skin your in’. It was a small group which I liked. There were tasks to do, things to work through, meditation, lunch, green juices, things to take away and work on and good company. It’s the same positive relaxing atmosphere as in a One to One session with Bernie, which is increased with other women who feel the same as you do about things and you can talk openly and honestly. For me to actively work through problems is the most beneficial.
I understand more than anything that the tools and knowledge Bernie teaches you is a lifestyle change. You have to invest in it to feel and see the difference. People tell me I seem different all the time. There are days when I am still plagued by negative thoughts and wishes to be anyone else but me. But I force myself to work through them and it does work. Nothing in life worth having comes easy and I’d think being content and happy within yourself is the biggest thing to fight for. I also know that I’ll have Bernie supporting and guiding me through the journey, which makes me feel good. I’m 26 years old and I can tell you that I could list many of my friends and relatives that would benefit greatly from Bernie and these courses. Age and circumstance doesn’t matter.”
“Bernie has made an enormous difference to my life. She is in tune with her coachees and is an absolute inspiration. I love that she uses nature and natural elements to enhance her coaching, I think that is brilliant!! She is warm and really cares about her coachees and I like nothing better than going for a walk with Bernie or a sea swim and feeling that sense of freedom that she is so great at helping you find”

“When I embarked on a block of life coaching sessions with Bernie, I had no idea where the journey would take me. What started off as a quest to answer questions about career, became one to be about relationships with my family and myself. Bernie is incredibly encouraging, motivating and caring. While challenging me to answer questions, she was highly supportive and had wonderful listening and feedback skills. Life coaching with Bernie has been a fantastic experience an invaluable in forging richer and more meaningful relationships with family and the wider world around me.”
“Bernie did a brilliant job of making me feel welcomed and comfortable from the minute I arrived.The day just got better as we endeavoured to get to know ourselves and each other a bit more. A wonderful day to appreciate the TRUE value of loving the skin you’re in.”

“I can’t recommend Bernie’s workshops enough. I went to her ‘love the skin you’re in’ workshop and came away feeling renewed and ready to face the world again. Just being around Bernie makes you feel uplifted and energised, her positivity is infectious. Love her to bits and love everything she does.”
“”The best thing about Bernie’s workshop is that she talks from experience and therefore talks from the heart. Nothing is more powerful than this. She has been on a journey and is letting everyone who attends her workshop into the twists and turns of that. It’s a truly positive day with much food for thought, lots of laughter and there’s even a ‘take away’ in the form of inspiration for how we might all progress our own personal journeys through life. A wonderful day!”

“Since our sessions I have to say that I have more confidence, am more happy, feel more creative and am happy to question my thoughts. You have provided me with the tools, which I am applying to different situations, to live a very fulfilled life. ” …”you have also taught me, Bernie, to listen to my vibrational levels. When they feel a little low I acknowledge this and try to raise them, if only a little. I also now have a committee of fabulous people I converse with; Ekhart Tolle, Byron Katie, Joe Sullivan, yourself and Melody Fletcher to name but a few…amazing!! I cant tell you how much I am looking forward to the future”

“I was drawn to Bernie’s life coaching for several reasons. The easy to reach seaside location and Bernie’s smiley face on her website (she really is that friendly in person too) were a good start. I was looking to build on my confidence moving forward into a new career after the initial all-consuming first years of raising children. But it was reading her mantra that well and truly had me hooked, ‘Love and cherish the skin you’re in’. The message positively sang to me. I still find it powerful, moving. Bernie used the essence of the message throughout our time together, gently pushing me to challenge myself and my beliefs. To this day I use the relaxation techniques she taught me, ways to connect back to myself. I trust in myself and my own decision making wholeheartedly now, and for that, I thank Bernie from the bottom of my heart.”
