Welcome to Barefoot Wellbeing and Parent Coaching
Hello my name is Cindy, I believe in a grounded and balanced approach to life,
hence the name Barefoot.
Barefoot Wellbeing and Parent Coaching offers you the bespoke opportunity to
unlock your potential. I pride myself on a confidential, non judgmental and nurturing
service. Giving you the opportunity to reflect, learn about who you are and the tools you need for a brighter, confident you.
My aim is to help you, no matter what age, to shine bright with confidence and direction.
Some people describe themselves as feeling stuck, not able to put their finger on it, but wanting to reignite their inner sparkle and sense of wellbeing.
Others feel they need support to change a current issue or behaviour (for them or their children), to help them regain a sense of balance and control in their lives once more.
Whatever your need I can help navigate you through these complexities to help you reach goals, find solutions, reboot your thinking and habits so you can unlock your potential.
Having a grounded approach to coaching ensures you are able to bring balance and a sense of peace and
control back into your life.

Who am I ?...........
I was born and raised in Lymington, a beautiful coastal town on the edge of the New Forest National Park. I am a wife, a mum to two teenagers, and am an owner of two crazy labradoodles.
I have over 25 years experience in working with children and families.
Originally qualifying as a NNEB Nursery Nurse, I immersed myself in the field of Autism for many years, later joining the Dorset and New Forest Portage Services.
I have also enjoyed my roles with Barnardos New Zealand, the New Forest Health Visiting Team and UK National Charity 'Action for Children'; as a Senior Outreach Worker, later becoming Service Co-ordinator for Children's Centres in the New Forest.
Barefoot Wellbeing and Parent Coaching was launched in January 2017 following the closure of Children's Centres and a noticeable decline in parent and wellbeing support being offered across the New Forest.
My aim is to offer something refreshingly bespoke to meet peoples individual needs, as everyone has a different journey and priorities in life.
I have an extensive range of qualifications in the Child and Family Sector, encompassing Early Years, Behaviour and Family Support, Positive Parenting, Special Needs, Leadership, Wellbeing and Domestic Abuse.
Qualifications include a Diploma in Life Coaching, Post Graduate Certificates in Integrated Centre Leadership (NPQICL), Diploma in Mindfulness, Post Graduate Cert in Baby Massage, Advanced Diploma's in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Childcare and Education.
Go Zen!, Relax Kids New Forest, ChargeUp! and Story Massage has been added under Barefoot's umbrella of Wellbeing services for children and teenagers along with a CBT based Anger and Aggression course. This was due to the increased demand of behavioural and wellbeing support being requested for young people in the New Forest and surrounding areas.
I am qualified to teach, and hold current licences in:
Triple P - Positive Parent Programme
Go Zen Programmes
Relax Kids Programmes
ChargeUp! Teen Programme
The Freedom Programme
WRAP (Wellness Recovery Action Planning) Programme
I am an affiliated member of the International Alliance for Holistic Practitioners, the International Association of NLP and Coaching, Triple P Positive Parenting International as well as and the International Wellbeing Centre of Excellence.
