What kind of coaching I do
And what I don’t do
What I do
I am a cancer survivor coach and it is all about helping you who are in remission to move away from fears and bad experiences connected with the illness. When life turns for the worse it’s easy to get stuck in the negativity even when we are told that our body is ready to go back to our normal life again.
It can also be difficult to accept that an illness has had an effect on our physical abilities to do what once was a part of the regular day. To continue life and find a path back again can be hard to do on your own and it’s not always easy to see your own potential.
Friendships might have changed and the social life might not be what it once was. Almost every area in life is affected by an illness like cancer and I’m here to help you navigate through that labyrinth.
My coaching is done entirely online via email or/and text based chat.
What I don’t do
I don’t offer counselling since I’m not a therapist or psychologist. That is a completely different thing even if some areas in coaching sometimes overlap with counselling.
I don’t give advice or try to apply my own experiences to your situation. I’m here to help you find your potential.
I’m not responsible for your success or failures. Those are entirely your own. My role is to support you and push you to do what you feel is right for you.
And finally… it’s not magic, although I wish it was. Coaching takes time and needs patience and understanding, both from you and me.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between a life coach and a psychologist?
The most distinctive difference is that a psychologist is mainly working with the past while a life coach is focusing on the future.
A life coach relies a lot on life experience and intuition while a psychologist has a rigid education.
Why online coaching?
There are several reasons for this.
- You can easily reach me whenever it’s convenient for you
- You can go back and read through my replies at your convenience
- You can do the same with the emails you’ve sent to me
- You can easily communicate with me if you have an hearing impairment
- I’m a lot easier to communicate with since I’ve got an hearing impairment
- As long as you’ve got a computer or handheld device you can always get in touch with me
What if I'm depressed?
If you are depressed I would suggest that you contact as psychologist to get help first.
You need a positive attitude and foundation to work with a life coach since you will have to do all the work to get where you want to be. If you tend to procrastinate, life coaching is not for you.
How do I know I can trust you?
Everything that you tell me is in the strictest of confidence. I wouldn’t gain anything by sharing your story or discussing our sessions with anyone. What’s exchanged between us in emails and text based chat is kept private.
Can you help a friend of mine?
If you contact me on behalf of someone else the answer will almost always be no.
To get any benefit out of life coaching you have to be 100% engaged in the process and life coaching sessions is nothing you can give away as a gift.
If you are contacting me on behalf of someone else because they cannot contact me themselves I will need to know why they cannot contact me and if online sessions will be possible for them.
However, I do not accept to work with someone through another person.
If you on the other hand want to recommend me, go right ahead 🙂
What if we don't get along?
Our relationship will be based on honesty, otherwise I cannot help you. And because of this I trust that you will tell me if you are not comfortable with the contact we have.
I’m always straight with people and if I feel that we’re not on the same wavelength I will tell you so.
If this happens I will refund you what’s left of the fee you already paid.
Fees and Payment
A life coach is an investment in yourself and because an hourly rate can be rather overwhelming when you have been on a sick leave for some time, I’ve put together some packages.
If you only need me once a month these packages might not be for you. In that case I charge £60 per hour, which breaks down to 2 or 3 emails, depending on what kind of email replies I need to send back to you.
Once we have agreed to how many sessions you will need, full payment should be made in advance. The first email session is always free.
Below are my rates and what is included in each package. If you have any question, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
This package includes:
Unlimited email exchanges for one week
Two text based chat sessions
This package includes:
Unlimited email exchange for two weeks
Four text based chat sessions
This package includes:
Unlimited email exchange for one month
Five text based chat sessions
A long-term package can also be arranged. Please contact me for more information and to set up an agreement that will suit us both. Sessions such as text based chat can be arranged to fit your schedule. No matter which package you choose it’s up to you when you want to use it. The more frequent our contact is, the more effective is the coaching and the faster your will reach your goals.
The initial consultation is always free and you don’t have to decide what package you want before we’ve been in touch.
So what makes me think I can help you? I don’t know until you’ve contacted me and I know more about your situation. But if you are coming back from cancer I can almost guarantee you that we will have a lot in common.
Cancer put a halt to my life in the middle of the 90’s and it changed my life entirely. Up until then everything had been pretty straight forward with everything that life had to offer. Time stood still for about a year with surgeries and treatment, but it took a lot longer to come back to what could be considered being normal again.
Part of my recovery was possible thanks to close friends and an amazing family, but there were certain things that I could never share with anyone whom I was that close to. So I created an emailing list for others in the same situation and their families and friends. Supporting others healed me to a large extent in ways that healthcare couldn’t and I managed to shift my focus on the future instead of the past.
