About Me and
I’m Jodie (Accredited Coach since 2008). I created Trevnee Coaching to help you make confident lasting changes in your life and career.
I help you be a better pilot of your own life.
What you get from a coaching relationship with me is a better understanding of what you need for more enjoyment in your life and work, and support with getting it.
What makes me a good coach?
My clients make confident changes, knowing that they have the right focus and intentions. They get the support and encouragement of a coach that has experienced successful change themselves (but has also had their fair share of failures, bad bosses, exhausting jobs, and feeling like a square peg in a round hole).
When you work on your change experience with me you benefit from my compassionate coaching skills, my direct approach, my abundant experience, and my belief that you can achieve whatever you want.
I know that you already have the tools you need, though you may not know it yet.
My work with you will help you to make full use of those tools and your you-ness; to adjust unhelpful thinking and behaviours; and to work to improve circumstances and assumptions that hold you back.
Space and Time
Change is exhausting. It takes up a lot of brainpower. It can be scary.
Solving problems and making clear plans will create space and time for you to do the things that you enjoy.
You may have a mass of jumbled thoughts and ideas about change. Coaching will help you focus and get clear.
I will ask effective
questions to make you see things in a new light.
You will take focused action to get you where you want to be.
Most of what holds you back is self doubt, fear and uncertainty.
Coaching provides you with a cheerleader, a motivator.
You will overcome doubt and reach your full potential.
What you'll get from Trevnee coaching
Can I fix it for you?
Coaches fundamentally hold that the coachee (you) has (or can cultivate) the skills and resources required to live the life you love.
A coach can't make changes on your behalf, or tell you what is right for you. So, no, I won't fix it for you.
But I know that during our coaching together you will find everything you need to fix it for yourself . I will help you to unlock your preferences, values and desires so that you can get more of what you want in your life.
In my late twenties I was working in a senior role in theatre. Like many of the creative industries it provided a less than perfect work environment.
I knew I wanted a drastic change. When I started thinking about changing careers I looked at my skills and interests.
That led me into freelance work that wasn’t so dissimilar to my job. It was a leap of faith and courage, and though successful on paper, in satisfaction terms I ended up very close to where I began.
Skills and interests are just a small part of the story. And they are unlikely to deliver the ideal working situation you want. As I found.
I trained as a coach initially to provide me with an important tool in my leadership arsenal. I developed my own coaching practise from the desire to help clients find the autonomy, balance, and satisfaction they wanted without the costly detours.
I help you to look at the full picture to interrogate and act on what is going to get you what you want.

Want to know a bit about clients I LOVE working with?
I work mostly (but not exclusively) with women.
I attract clients that aren’t right at the start of their careers, but have been doing what they are doing in life and work for long enough to know that they need it to change.
My clients come from diverse jobs. They are copywriters, lecturers, small business owners, marketing consultants, artists, florists, analysts, project managers, administrators, mums, evaluators and charity workers. They could be anything really.
They work in TV, corporate, SMEs, freelance, museums, charities, their own businesses, at home, transport, arts organisations, and universities.
It doesn’t make a difference what my clients DO. It matters who they ARE.
My most successful clients are: motivated, curious, enthusiastic, independent, open, reliable.
If that sounds like you, then YOU are my ideal client. We should work together! Send me a quick email to discuss how.
