” My thirteen year old daughter had sessions with Pauline, prior to this she was very shy and was struggling socially at school. She is also autistic and finds any new experience very difficult but straight away Pauline put her at ease, she is very warm, welcoming and friendly. My daughter felt comfortable straight away and thoroughly enjoyed her sessions. Since seeing Pauline my daughter is thinking much more positive, she is now speaking up in class (something she would have dreaded before) and is also planning to join school clubs. She now has a better understanding of how to deal with social situations and the sessions have helped her see the importance of engaging with her peers and contributing to meaningful class discussions when she wants to rather than holding back. The methods that Pauline has taught her will help her continue to grow in confidence.

My ten year old daughter also went to see Pauline after struggling to deal with strong minded, bossy characters at school. My daughter is now feeling much more confident and now has the tools in place to deal with difficult situations.

I would 100% recommend Pauline”

 “I have struggled with perfectionism from childhood and I was addicted to self improvement. I mean ‘who’s gonna love me if I’m not perfect’! These were my unhealthy beliefs and it had made me controlling and held me back from many things, it was also starting to impact my relationship. When Pauline explained that she could help me get to the core of what was causing this, I jumped at the chance.

Pauline is the most loving soul and has a very caring and gentle energy. I felt at ease and very safe to explore these feelings with her. We managed to get to the root cause of these feelings and where they came from and it was enlightening! Not to mention a bit emotional but I felt so safe to release it.

I have since felt a lightness that I haven’t felt in a very long time and can now say that I love and accept all parts of myself, even on the more challenging days”

“Pauline, just wanted to say a million thank you’s for the time you spent with me to help my anxiety. After suffering in silence for many years, not knowing that anxiety was an actual ‘thing’. I cannot thank you enough for how much your coaching has helped me.  From the minute I sat down I felt at ease. You are very, very easy to open up to and your amazing positive strength to help me out has changed my life. I can honestly say that I feel like the permanent knot in my stomach has gone and I don’t think it will be back due to my anchor. As I said before thank you and I’d 110% recommend you to anyone who needs help”

“Being the kind of person that takes on everyone’s troubles or worries around me was making me stressed and angry. I was told of Pauline’s work and went to see her. Wow is all I can say, she helped me open my eyes to see the weight I was carrying around that was holding me back. With Pauline’s help and techniques she helped me see that things don’t have to be so heavy to carry. I can’t fix the world but I can see it in a different light. 

I looked forward to our sessions as after everyone I could see myself becoming less stressed and I feel free of the worries I was putting on myself and I now deal with situations much better. Thank you Pauline you are truly gifted”

“Insecurities, fear, zero confidence, low self-esteem and scars of the past… I had them all.  I came from a difficult childhood and the scars followed me through life from relationship to workplace. It’s not an easy topic but it’s things we live with every day, not knowing who to talk to or what to do. 

As a professional male working in an important role, looking after a workforce, equipment and deadlines to meet, being the front runner and having responsibility’s how could this be? Tiger on the outside, kitten on the inside. It took its toll and I finally decided to do something about it. 

When talking to a good friend one day they suggested talking to someone professional. I was very sceptical and unsure but decided to give it a go. I was put in touch with Pauline and well all I can say is I’m so glad I did. I was very nervous when I first went along but after meeting Pauline I instantly felt at ease. I found her very easy to talk to and very calming. I felt safe and secure with her. I must say truly amazing. 

From then on my life has been totally different. This is no magic wand, no harry potter spells just the positive energy and power of thought with the tools you are given throughout the coaching. These help you to deal with difficult situations and emotions we encounter in our daily lives either at work or home. 

These sessions with Pauline at North Star Coaching has given me back confidence, self-worth, self esteem and definitely changed my life for the better. I am now able to deal with situations with ease and make better choices”
