I’m a qualified hypnotherapist using hypnotherapy using hypnosis for anxiety, stress, confidence and depression and other emotional problems. I am also a CBT therapist and combine this with hypnotherapy for more permanent results.
I have 2 teenage boys. Before I reached a certain age! I wanted to gained some professional qualifications to back up my years of experience. I put myself through college alongside working full time and gained my AAT Level 4 qualification. I have since set up my own practice and I am currently offering a personal service to businesses across the North East.

Throughout my time teaching performing arts, my greatest pleasure has always from hearing about what all my students wanted to aim for in the future and encouraging them to take the first tiny steps to get there. And the biggest reward was always watching someone with no confidence blossom into an incredible performer.
That’s why I decided to use these skills to become a mindset, confidence and success coach. I still teach performing arts (I’m too much of a diva to give it up!) but alongside that, now I help magnificent women, just like you, to get clarity on their goals, whether that be in life or business, and encourage and empower them to have the confidence to go for them!
I truly believe that you can achieve anything you set your mind to with a clear plan and a strategy to overcome that negative mind chatter. You already have all the skills and confidence you need, we just need to bring it out of you.
My coaching courses give you support, accountability and strategies to help you overcome obstacles, define your goals and build the confidence to achieve what you really desire.
You only get one life – so let’s make it sparkle.

Having been in recruitment for over 20 years, my passion is still finding the right candidate for the right company. I worked for a large national company for nearly 8 years and would have stayed had they not been less than keen to offer flexible hours. But this gave me the kick I needed to start KCR Solutions with my brother Chris, which we have been running for 14 years.
We specialise in Finance and Accountancy Recruitment but occasionally assist with other specialisms. We have built up a loyal client base which is growing all the time. Once a client uses us, they tend to use us again and we get a lot of repeat business. We have a great team of staff and love to assist with any recruitment needed.
I love my job and even better, I have been able to work it round enjoying time with my children and being there for them as they are growing up; it has often meant working crazy hours at crazy times, but it has been worth it.
I joined Finale in 2012. As the daughter of the owner, I have always helped in the shop and it felt like a natural progression to join the business full time when we decided to go online and expand our collections. I have learnt a lot from my mum who owns the business and I think we make a great team. I love my job and everything about fashion and customer service, despite having a degree in Criminology and spending the initial part of my career working with both juvenile and adult offenders I have always helped mum with her fashion businesses so it wasn’t too much of a shock to either of us when I changed career path at 35! As an independent shop we specialise in helping customers find the perfect pair (or pairs!)for everyday or special occasions this means my job is very varied and great fun. I have enjoyed learning all about social media, marketing and finance as I have taken on more of the business. I split my week between the shop and my office so when I’m not selling shoes I am working on all the behind the scenes stuff, managing our social media, our website and our paperwork.
At school I really wanted to be an artist, until I started studying Graphics at AS Level. I realised I was really good at it and kept getting top marks. Being able to creatively think about different ways in which you could convey a message through graphic design is amazing. It was at that moment in time, I realised I wanted to be a Graphic Designer. I gambled with determination to get accepted onto the degree I really wanted to do and it paid off.
I’ve worked previously in design agencies and with large blue-chip corporations, but it just wasn’t for me. My mission ever since leaving the corporate world to go it alone
has been to create real, long-standing relationships with fellow business owners.
I absolutely love what I do. Seeing the results from the designs I create for clients gives me a real buzz. It’s not every day you can be driving up the motorway and drive past a mini bus that you designed the vehicle graphics for. To me, that is total job satisfaction, seeing my designs turn into reality.
I work with such amazing and inspiring business owners and that’s what makes me turn up every day to design for them. They’re so passionate and positive about their businesses, it empowers me to do the same with mine.
I not only get to help my clients on their business journey, but I’m honoured to be a part of it too.
Hello my name is Shauna and I’m an artist specialising in pet portraits. I started this business because I love art and animals! I started out originally doing a pet memorial portrait for a family member who had recently lost their furry friend, I felt honoured being able to create a piece of art that meant so much to someone.
Animals are such loyal, fascinating creatures. I think the bond between a human and their animal is something not understood unless you’ve had that connection and friendship with one. I love doing pet portraits because it’s a nice tribute and keepsake for that love we have for our animals.
Energy, passion, teamwork.

I’ve been trading for approximately 18 months. I’ve been a Professional Coach for over 25 years.
