Career change and life coaching in Edinburgh and online, helping all you meaning-seekers craft balanced and successful lives, careers and businesses.  Feel authentic and alive again!

Panel 1

What does it take to love life?

It’s not money, we know that.

It’s about knowing the source code of what makes you feel most alive.

It’s about crafting a sustainable, balanced lifestyle that allows you to become all you can.

It’s about doing what you’re on this earth to do.

Acting in alignment with your core self has a positive ripple effect on everyone around you and everything you do.

When you’re happy and fulfilled, everyone wins!

Panel 2


When you’re in a rut, nothing beats having someone to help you see the light and solve the problem!

After running a business for nearly five years, I’d lost my zing.  I was feeling guilty for wanting more, and frustrated that I couldn’t find my way forward.

It was like being stuck on a round-about.  I’d finally think I knew which turn to take, then just as quickly I’d second guess myself and end up going around again.

I knew my life and career needed an overhaul, but I simply couldn’t figure it out.

I needed someone who would hear me out without being personally affected by what I said (unlike family and friends, no matter how good they are!).  Someone who would help me see the big picture and notice opportunities I didn’t.  Someone who would help me map out my next steps and stay motivated to take them.

Of course, I didn’t realise that then!

I tried going it alone: painfully, plagued by constant doubt, and taking far too long.  It was no fun whatsoever, and I wish I’d saved the time, money and heartache by simply reaching out to someone to help me co-pilot!

On the up side, I read dozens of books and listened to hours of podcasts on personal and career development, studied Positive Psychology, and quizzed a multitude of seemingly fulfilled people about how they do it.

In the process I discovered my own core driving force: helping people craft lives, careers and businesses that allow them to feel authentic and alive.

And I’ve also racked up enough insight and experience to save you years of struggle!

So then, if you’re feeling stuck, I might just be the best person to help you get unstuck.

Some of the nice things people have said…

Before I started working with Lorna I was feeling overwhelmed and stuck with my new business venture. I knew where I wanted to be going but just didn’t feel confident or clear about it. And then I started working with Lorna and I’ve never looked back since. Could not recommend her coaching services enough as she has helped give me the confidence to really start trusting in my dreams. To have somebody to listen to you and then remind you of what your goals are when you first started was invaluable. She kept me on track and helped me to achieve so much in a short space of time.

You are amazing and I am really very grateful for the sessions we had. I had some big breakthroughs particularly around money and I am making big changes because of it.. It’s not been easy but the truth is setting me free. Thank you for being a key part in this every unfolding process 🙂

About Lorna

For 20 years, I have been helping people learn more about themselves, build self-worth and reach their potential, first as a teacher and outdoor educator, then as a university lecturer and mentor, and now as a coach and trainer.

I enjoy listening to people, noticing the themes coming up that speak volumes about what matters most to them, then making them aware of what they’re not quite seeing.

I love asking questions that get people believing in the possibilities, steering them away from self-limiting beliefs and knee-jerk thinking habits and towards taking positive action.

I get a huge kick out of sharing my knowledge and experience in positive psychology, business, education and leadership with those looking for fuel for their mind and a mirror to their soul.

Fundamentally, what drives me is helping you be the best you can.  I want you to thrive!
