Jessica Wall, Life Coach
Muddy says: Feeling lost or overwhelmed? Wanting to make a big change in your life or sensing that your life could do with a few minor tweaks? Or you may have already made a big change, set up your own business perhaps, and now it’s hard to rationalise your new identity while still attempting to be authentic? Confused? Aren’t we all? When I met Jessica Wall, I was immediately impressed. An expert in Cognitive Behavioural Life Coaching, Jessica’s business is Breaking Down Walls.
Jessica Wall believes in action. As a cognitive behavioural life coach, she is naturally an excellent and empathetic listener, but her approach is positively practical. Jessica sees coaching as a process to helping people develop the skills and attitudes they require to help them get the best from their life or work, and to make the right decisions to move towards their goals. She works with all ages, but speaking to her I found out that her clients currently tend to be women in mid-life, some of whom are balancing their own work lives and relationships with the challenges of caring for teenagers and ageing parents. Jessica also works a lot with teenagers. I enjoyed the time I spent with her, and she immediately put me at my ease.
She said that coaching is helping people understand their own aims and goals and to formulate what can start off as vague ideas into detailed ideas. She helps her clients to make their own personal action plans to achieve their objectives, and, guess what, she can then hold you accountable which is often the hardest part. Jessica loves her work and that shines through when you are with her. She is no stranger to anxiety in all its shapes and forms but has a wise and kind presence that is conducive to finding what you want yourself, with a person you can trust to help you along the way. Jess lives in Welwyn Garden City but works all over Hertfordshire, either in your home or in her own home, or in a neutral location. She is also skilled at working with people on the phone or via Skype.
