Following a 22-year career in an industry where she was applying coaching skills on a daily basis, Jackie has been helping people transform their lives as a professional life coach for more than 18 years.
Jackie is a member of The Association for Coaching. She holds the accredited LCH Diploma after training in 2002 as a Life Coach Practitioner with Curly Martin, the International Life Coach and author of ‘The Life Coaching Handbook’ and is a licensed career coach. She has a Diploma in Business Performance Coaching and a Life Coaching Certificate, both from Newcastle College, and in 2005 trained as a career coach. Jackie is an advanced EFT practitioner who has trained with The EFT Centre in London and continues her training in this area, and she has completed Reiki levels 1 and 2. With an honours degree in Psychology from the Open University, Jackie has also trained with the Coaching Supervision Academy to become a coach supervisor, qualifying in 2008. This reflects her commitment to continually broadening her portfolio of skills and techniques to enhance and develop her coaching practice. And she admits to taking great pleasure in learning and personal development!
In view of the current COVID situation and the effect this is having on our lives and mindset, Jackie is currently researching Resilience Coaching and creating a new programme around this. Early in her coaching career her training included Dr. Robert Holden’s Happiness Coaching course, Dr. Bradley Nelson’s course on Emotion Code healing and several courses run by Michael Neill including his advanced coach training course “Coaching from the Inside Out.” During the past few years Jackie has done courses on Positive Psychology and Clean Language, as well as various courses with Coaches Rising, including Coaching from Source, The Power of Embodied Transformation and the Neuroscience of Change. She is also a long term student of the Three Principles. All these approaches and methodologies are being incorporated in to her eclectic method of coaching, subject to the needs and learning styles of her clients.
Background and experience
Following years of soul–searching, Jackie faced the reality that her life was seriously out of balance. She knew she needed to make some major changes if she was ever going to be happy and fulfilled. It took a few months of dedicated planning before she made her escape from the corporate world in 2001 — since when she has never looked back.
Jackie had worked as an insolvency practitioner for 22 years, dealing with receiverships, liquidations, and bankruptcies — none of these very positive life experiences for the people concerned. So not only did she gain extensive business experience, she was also helping people find a way out of crisis situations, thereby naturally developing her life–coaching skills. A big realisation for Jackie in all this was that she would have to start applying these skills to herself if she was to emerge from the crisis in her own life.
This transition meant moving out of the very negative place where she was — affecting her health, her relationships and her outlook on the world. It meant doing some hard work on herself: examining how things were, how she really wanted them to be: what she had to do to make the necessary changes: and what things she had to actively lose or acquire in her life. It meant learning some difficult but valuable lessons.
One of the most important lessons Jackie learned was that she could not have done this alone — the guidance and help she received from skilled people had been crucial in the achievement of her goals. Another was that she had to discover who she truly was — her personal values and her real needs — her authentic self. Once this was clear, she was able to work with other people to help them through a similar process.
Jackie has learned that changing our lives for the better is easier than we may believe if we get the right support, guidance and encouragement. Above all, this needs to be given in a non–judgmental way. This is where our friends and loved ones may fall short.
This is not because they don’t love us or care about us, but because it is hard for them to be objective and they do not necessarily have the capability to give us the right kind of help. Just as you would not let your partner perform heart surgery on you if she/he were not a trained specialist, you need a trained specialist to help you transform your life.
Jackie Fletcher is certainly a well–trained specialist in the field of Life Coaching. She’s been there, she’s done it, and she’s living the life she always wanted — enjoying helping lots of other people do the same.
