Helen Henry Outdoor Life Coach

Using the outdoors to find clarity and calm

I am an outstanding Outdoor Life Coach helping working parents juggle work and family life to feel happy, appreciated and less stressed.  Are you trying to find guilt-free 'you-time' that works with your family?  Did you used to have hobbies that you would love to do again?  Do you feel unappreciated and taken for granted at work and / or home? Are you wishing you were healthier?  Do you feel like you could organise your time better? 


If you answered yes to any of these questions book in a free call and come and try my Revival Recipe, a programme to find your Calm, Gain in Confidence and feel in Control of your life.


It is so important to look after our mental wellbeing, now, possibly more than ever, after such a long period of lock down.  Are you ready to be empowered and make positive life changes?  I believe each of us deserves to live a more balanced, happy life. It is possible, you can do it.  Please contact me with any questions, and learn how to find your headspace to avoid burnout.

 

About Me

IMG_20201107_144125_edited.jpg

I am a mother of two, a wife, a sister, a friend, a horse rider, a climber, a reader, an outdoor life coach, a teacher, a tutor and a childminder. 

I am who I am today because of the experiences I have had, the people I have been surrounded by and the choices I have made. 

I had the most wonderful, secure childhood surrounded by love.  I love life and living but that has been learnt through great highs and lows.  My lowest period was when both my parents were ill and died before I had got married.  They have not met my children and I miss them greatly every day but I have learnt that through love, being outdoors and being determined to have a balance in my life I can feel content and happy. 

Don't get me wrong I have bad days but I know how to stay positive and I enjoy setting new goals and challenges. 

I have very close family and friends whose support has been amazing and the best animals too.  One of my greatest highs was the realisation that dreams can come true when I got my first pony, Ed, at the age of 30. I waited 25 years and every time I saw him he made me smile and I could not believe he was mine.

I get how exhausting having children and running a family is.  Throw work on top and it is hard to find time to breathe!! When they are little, getting dressed is a wonderful achievement, and so it should be, but as time goes on and sleep gets a little better, or you just get more used to a lack of sleep(!) you might start thinking of work, you might be juggling work and family, getting fitter and finding some time for yourself and with others.  Time is so hard to find but I have developed skills so I feel in control of my life and confident to know what is best for me and my family.  I have found a calm; outside, meditating, reading, riding...We can find your calm too.  COVID-19 continues to make life rather difficult for us all.  I have lost work, missed family and friends, cancelled holidays and at times felt overwhelmed by all the changes.    


I have challenged my mindset and experienced first hand the power of attaining those goals that I didn't think I could. I have time now to live the life I love with horses, friends and most importantly family.  I want to support you to do the same.  

 
Happy Hiking

Outdoor Life Coaching

Clarity in Nature

 As an experienced Outdoor Educationalist and Outdoor Coach I can also tailor sessions in an outdoor environment, in order to get the additional physiological and psychological benefits of nature.  We can sit on a bench in a local park, go for a walk around a town or village or go for a walk over the hills, woods and fields.  As we walk we will talk about those things on your mind using nature's calm to help heal and nourish your growth.

We can also speak on the phone or online whilst being outdoors in different places, a new coaching style that COVID-19 taught us. 

I love being outside, enjoying the fresh air, the views, the relaxed atmosphere to chat whilst walking.  To reflect on your life whilst nature shows you what you need.  Sometimes a beautiful, old, gnarly tree can represent so much to one person and a delicate flower more to another.  The weather challenging you, the walk leaving you feeling exhilarated and motivated to put into action all that you want to.  We need to get outside now, more than ever before.  Why not have some support whilst you walk.


If you are feeling overwhelmed by life’s demands, my aim is to introduce clarity, self-motivation and success.  I use the ICANDO model to achieve the Revival Recipe, my process to allow you to feel calm, confident and in control of your life. It is time to Banish the Blues and discover what you need for you.

I look forward to hearing from you, from Mummy to Mummy, Woman to Woman, outdoors, let's make a difference.

"Helen is whatever you need, wherever you need.  She can be an adrenaline shot when you've lost motivation, a patient teacher when you're failing and desperate to succeed or a gentle bunny ear listening when it's all gone Pete Tong.  Helen has picked me up so many times when I've been low and been making the fun times too.  I really wish all of her clients the best time with her on this exciting adventure of life coaching"

Becky, Leighton Buzzard

"I feel so motivated and happy that I am now doing all those things I wanted to do and knew how to do it but just didn't actually get on and do it until you came along.  Thank you so much"

Mum of a very active boy, Luton

"It has been hard but I have done it.  I am still a tired Mummy of 3 but I am much happier and feel that I am in control again. I couldn't recommend Helen enough. Thank you"

A newly motivated Mum, London.

"After an injury I found myself in a bit of a life rut, unable to continue with my current job and feeling generally unhappy.  Helen set me small focused goals each week and having achieved these I feel so much more positive about my future career and life.  She has helped me regain the delicate balance between being a mum and having my own time to achieve personal goals.  Helen has a calming influence on busy life, she is a great listener and offers excellent life

advice. Helen's time is great value for money, I have had 5 sessions and have gained so much. I would highly recommend Helen to anyone looking for a life coach."

Emily, Buckinghamshire

"Thoroughly recommend this life coach...I've known her since I was three and she is one of the strongest, determined and caring women I know."

Liz, Buckinghamshire

I can’t thank Helen enough for the support she has given me over the past month. She has helped me find direction and has helped me find that ‘me’ time I have neglected since having my little one. She has a very kind and caring nature and her passion for helping others makes her a wonderful person to work with. I highly recommend her services! Charlie, Bedfordshire.

Thanks so much for another great coaching session Helen! After your positive advice I'm feeling very motivated to achieve my goals, and talking outdoors really helped give me the head space to think about them. Jenny, Glastonbury

Do you love being around horses?  How about half a day to rediscover how horses can allow you to feel.  That calm whilst grooming and just being with you.  Gain confidence around a big animal and realise what you can do in life.  Work with an animal who takes you as you are and won't judge you for what you can or can't do, just how you choose to behave in the now.  This is all about being outdoors, setting some goals, learning strategies and sharing that time with a horse and other like minded people.  Horses can create a wonderful calm around them allowing you to live in the moment and forget all your worries. 

What a treat for you or someone you know...message me to show your interest and when we can (due to CV-19) I will post some dates.

All VIP packages include a follow up call to continue my support. Contact me here for a free 30 minute consultation.

Wellbeing Walks for Teams and Businesses

Re-connect with your team

Has your team been working from home? Have you been seeing each other in video calls but not in person for the last 18 months? Do you need to meet, motivate and share you thoughts and feelings to bring your team back together.  Do you have people in the team anxious about meeting inside or in bigger groups?  How about meeting together outside for a walk and re-connect to avoid burnout.
Covid-19 has meant your colleagues have had to change, adapt and rethink the way they work.  It might have made their work life balance very difficult, they might have been home-schooling too or struggling being alone and missing the conversations and social aspect that work brings.
Imagine a day out where you could celebrate your wins, meet together and socialise properly, talk about how you have been and where you would like to be in 6 months time.  Message me to create your tailor made walk, suitable for your staff in the Beds/ Bucks border.
