When you’re in a rut, nothing beats having a co-pilot to help you realise your capabilities and make positive changes to feel authentic and alive again.

I’m Lorna, Founder of the Good Life School and a qualified Positive Psychology Coach with a passion for helping meaning-seekers craft balanced and successful lives, careers and businesses.

I believe everyone should be able to access support, so I offer pay-what-you-can coaching:)

What Happens in Coaching?

What happens in coaching is down to you. You bring the focus, I bring the process.

The process involves me using my knowledge of coaching psychology and positive mental health, and my skills in facilitating learning and change, to help you gain clarity and move forward.

I am an empathic and astute listener who challenges your thinking, helps you connect the dots, keeps you on track, and champions your capabilities every step of the way.

If you want self-insight, growth, direction and values-driven change, I am probably the coach for you:)

Who’s Coaching For?

Coaching* is for anyone who’s feeling stuck or has a conundrum they’d like to work through.

It’s for those who know the value of professional support in thinking through important ideas and decisions.

I welcome people from wide-ranging backgrounds, including those whose first language isn’t English, as I’ve spent 20 years living and working internationally and in culturally-diverse contexts.

*Coaching is not the same as counselling or psychotherapy. If you feel you would benefit from support in working through emotional and psychological difficulties, there are many wonderful therapists who can be enormously helpful.

Timing and Duration

As for timing and duration, it depends on your needs and preferences.

Some people find a one-hour weekly session for six weeks enough, others prefer twelve or more. Some like to meet once a fortnight/month for six months or more. Others want one or two sessions to get them going, then they touch base every now and then for a refuel.

We can decide this at the start or as we go. I find ‘structure with flex’ works well.


I meet clients on Zoom, a high quality and secure video conferencing platform that you can download and use for free.

I can also meet outdoors for walking coaching, such as around Blackford Hill or Portobello Beach.

Phone or Skype coaching is also available.


Prices are set to be as inclusive as possible and based on a dana (gift) economy model (‘give what you can, take what you need’).

It derives from my desire to enter into a wholehearted human relationship with coachees rather than a provider-consumer interaction.

We’ll discuss at the start what you plan to pay – here are my suggested prices:

  • Full price (‘pay-it-forward’: your fees help subsidise another coachee) – £47 per hour
  • Moderate waged – £37 per hour
  • Low waged – £25 per hour
  • Unwaged – contact us for free coaching (we offer a number of pro bono coaching sessions each month)
