Feel the power that comes from focusing on what
excites you."

Focused on You

Continued connection and accountability. Confidence to move forward. Signposting to additional expertise and resources.


I understand how precious your time is. 1-1 coaching offers the flexibility to work out of hours. Covering a lot of content in a shorter space of time.

Behavioural Flexibility

The road ahead is not yet defined. 1-1 coaching helps you to navigate the process. To stay resilient. To remain focused and overcome obstacles with confidence.

What you‘ll get out of a 1-to-1 Buddy Coaching:


Most of us are used to operating from an “employee mindset”. We respond to requests and demands and this dictates our actions. As a single start-up this disappears, and we quickly become lost. Working 1 to 1 with a coach encourages an “entrepreneurial mindset” and maintains the flow of shared interaction. By creating a simple plan for you to work to, gives clarity on the actions required to make progress.


When working alone it is common to become distracted. When things get tough our mind will encourage us to take the easy road and avoid taking action. Working 1-1 with a coach offers facilitation of a process that helps us to stay focused. By eliminating the fear that holds us back we can continue to move forward.


Becoming a start-up is an emotional journey. Our path is forever changing and without direction we will get lost. A 1-1 coaching process provides the road map for your journey. Helping you to navigate obstacles, remain flexible and encourages regular reflection. There are many ways to reach the same destination and coaching helps you to stay moving in the right direction even if you have to take a few detours along the way.

Is 1-to-1 coaching for early stage start-ups the right solution for you?

Yes, if:

  • You have successfully completed our 8 week workshops and you are ready to take the next step
  • You are managing a business or side line and need accountability to plan long term actions
  • You are interested in Mindset Coaching and are unable to commit to the workshop timetable
  • You are ready to work 1-1 on a specific area of your business or require some additional expertise
  • You would benefit from long term support to maintain focus, connection and direction

How does it work and what is required?

Step 1

Ideally you will have already completed the "Mindset Coaching for Early Stage Start-Ups" Group Programme.

Step 2

At your Free Consultation meeting we can discuss your individual requirements, expectations and commitment.

Step 3

Decide on a plan that works for you. All 1 to 1 coaching is charged on a monthly subscription basis. Making it affordable and with no unexpected costs.

Step 4

We meet once a month to discuss your business progress. Work on any issues you may have identified and create a plan of action for the upcoming month.

Step 5

If in between our appointments you'd require additional support, I am of course also available via skype and email also on short notice.

Step 6

Maintaining a relationship with a Coach throughout your business lifecycle can offer multiple benefits to help your business grow.

"Since coaching 1-to-1 with Abbie I cannot believe the difference in my outlook. Being a part of a family run business means finding balance between our work and private life. I have found the whole process invaluable. My work life has become enjoyable and a fulfilling part of my everyday life. I am able to give my best as I am feeling at my best."
