I'm Beth Follini - Life/Work Coach. I'm most known for my unique 'niche' in coaching women struggling with the decision whether to have children or not. I also coach clients on a range of other issues including career coaching, work/life balance, developing confidence and leadership skills.
I coach clients face-to-face (in the City of London & in East Dulwich and I use Skype/telephone to coach clients living outside London. I have coached clients living US, Canada, Australia, Africa and mainland Europe and clients living throughout the UK.

'Working with Beth helped me resolve an issue that had seemed complicated and intractable. It helped my confidence and enabled me to see a clearer path into the future. The sessions were serious, but actually quite fun too.' Steve, mid-50's, London
