Amanda Barry CPCC, ACC

I'm a certified coach, working with mostly entrepreneurs

running ethical, social impact or environment focused businesses. 

Running a business is thrilling, energising and satisfying. It is also stressful, challenging and sometimes let's face it, a bit isolating.  I've been there. I know exactly how it feels. 

Earlier in my career, I ran a successful PR agency. I loved it but often overwhelmed me. 

One day I found a coach who helped me realise that you don't have to do everything on your own. 

And sometimes we all need a little help.   That's why I decided to become a coach. It's a great way to give back and help others on their journey as I was helped on mine. 

Working with a coach means you have someone  who is always there, always ready to urge you on, always helping nudge you forward, keeping you on track to achieve your dreams. 

It's a safe, confidential, inspiring relationship like no other.

So if you are in overwhelm, or just looking to find your next step forward, give me a call and let's talk. 

"Amanda is a naturally gifted coach with a razor-sharp intuition. She creates an incredibly warm and trusting environment within which you can both explore the parts of yourself which you have been avoiding, as well as dream of the future for which you've been longing". Cat UK

"Amanda is a naturally talented coach, with an unbelievable intuition...I can't thank her enough for her knowledge, ability, understanding and support and I would recommend her to anyone seeking a coach".  Eleanor, UK

"I would thoroughly recommend Amanda if you are feeling at a crossroads, if you want to move forward but unsure of which direction to go in. Amanda will coach you and encourage you to have the confidence to see your own capabilities and strengths to the point where the decision and direction becomes very clear."    Anita, UK

"Amanda and I worked together for a number of months. I found the experience to be challenging, thought provoking and positive. We developed an excellent rapport and she enabled me to both discover and

explore some aspects of myself that I am not sure I was fully aware of.

This has helped me move forward in both my career and personal life. Thank you! "   Sue, UK



Whatever your own particular career goals may be, as your coach I will be there in your corner, totally committed to helping you get where it is you want to be - and if you don't know where that is yet, I'll be there to help you discover the right path for you.

Whether you run your own business or on the career ladder elsewhere, working with a coach means you will have a trusted, confidential, independent voice and supporter, detached in a way that family and friends just can't be.


Taking the time to reflect on what is truly important to us, what gives our lives meaning, is one of the brilliant benefits of working with a coach. 

When we know this, we can start to connect with our life purpose and understand what we were truly born to do.  


With this new insight, decisions that may have been troubling us become easier. The path ahead clearer. 

Discovering your life purpose is like finding your own personal North Star. It will help guide you to where you were destined to be. 



Sometimes it's tough to know what path to take. 

We get caught up in lots of shoulds and don't take the time to work out what is really right for us. 

Working with a coach will help you figure out the important stuff. What your values are. What you hold dear and what you can let go of. 

Making decisions from this place becomes a whole lot clearer. 








Certified Professional Coach

I love being a coach. It is the most rewarding work I've ever done because coaching truly has the power to change lives for the better. I have personally benefited from coaching throughout my career, so I know first hand how powerful working with a coach can be. 


I discovered coaching when running my first business over 20 years ago. I wanted to grow the business but didn't know how, so I began working with a coach. She was to prove to be an invaluable support over the next few years, helping me navigate the often challenging and sometimes isolating experience that running your own business is.


Later on, inspired by my own personal experience, I started to offer a mentoring/coaching service to MDs of small businesses. The feedback I received was instant and positive. I realised then that I had found something very special. My career took a different path for a while but I always kept the dream of becoming a coach alive. 

I was finally able to train to become a coach with the world renowned Co-Active Training Institute (CTI) in 2017 and attained the gold standard qualification in coaching. I am now a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC),  and an ACC certified coach with the International Coaching Federation.

That's my story - now what about you? If you are curious to find out whether coaching is for you, just drop me a line or give me a call. I'd love to be the coach that helps you on your journey.
