Bryony is a Co-active Coach. Her background is in dance and psychology, and more recently in education, working with families and birth, ante- and post-natal education/support. She has been interested in coaching since the late 90’s. That thread of interest has woven through her life until she trained with CTI UK, bringing her working and life experience together with her love for working with people, to coach individuals through new beginnings, life changes and towards their dreams, so that ultimately courage and aliveness can flow.
She found that she was not the only one who reached adulthood with not much of a clue and thought everyone else had ‘it’ figured. It finally sunk in for her that everyone is winging it and that ‘it’ is about living life from an authentic place. Our journeys through life are a mixture of little steps, big strides, some skipping like no one is watching, a fair amount of holding on for dear life and some scary-as-hell leaps of faith. Bryony is constantly inspired by people’s resilience, strength and creativity when she works with them through whatever part of their journey they are on.
Bryony works playfully, intuitively and at a heart and soul level, giving the brain a rest and tapping into a deeper knowing. She holds the space with compassion, allowing space and time for YOU.
Here’s what I know for sure…
That we all have an innate wisdom within us.
We all need connection and purpose in life.
Change is the only thing we know we will face along the way and transitions are hard, even if they are also full of wonder.
An open heart brings power and force that awaken an aliveness.
My biggest release is… letting loose on the dance floor, laughing when there’s just no stopping it or simply sitting in stillness – preferably outside.
My favourite place in Yorkshire is… well there are just so many…..there are a few favourites along the river wharfe, Brimham Rocks and an old smugglers cottage on the coast where my family has gathered over the years, mostly for Christmas and muddy walks.
