confidence & life coach in the cotswolds

Hi, I'm Emma Forbes, and I've had an interesting and slightly unconventional career and life that has taken me on several different tangents. Some of them planned, but many that just happened by accident. And for those struggling with confidence to make a move, whether personal or professional, let's just say I've got some experience in that arena!


My career started in PR, but very soon I decided that I hadn’t got the travel bug out of my system after a gap year in the US, and ended up in Rome for a six-month holiday. That holiday lasted almost 11 years, where I started working as an English teacher and later became a flight attendant for Alitalia.

After an incredible experience of living abroad I moved back in the UK and split my time between Hove and Oxfordshire working back in PR. After several years in the industry, and at an age when I didn’t want the stress anymore, I set up a small food business. This ran successfully until the end of 2018 when it was time for another change...and lead me to Life Coaching.

I am now a qualified confidence and life coach, previously based in Hove until a move back to the Cotswolds in early 2022, after gaining an Accredited Diploma in Transformational Coaching* in 2020 with Animas. 


I am definitely a glass half full sort of person, like an adventure and love helping and supporting others. I have a wealth of life experience in having the confidence to take chances and try something new, with the self-belief that things always work out in the end. I’m a great listener and will definitely help you find the right path to get your shizzle together and find the confidence to achieve your goals.
