Abi Unwin Life Coach, Bristol

My passion for supporting people in their careers and personal lives has led me to become a personal development and career coach with a relaxed but professional way of communicating to help people in any area of life realise their goals. I am an experienced life coach and career coach in Bristol as well as a CMI level 5 qualified manager.   I have worked in both the public and voluntary sector for the past 18 years and am a certified member of the Association for Coaching.  During that time I have worked with people from all backgrounds to help them break down barriers, identify career paths and personal goals using focussed action planning and motivational coaching methods.  My work has ranged from coaching some of most vulnerable people in our society around taking positive steps forward to high performing senior managers and business owners to empower them to improve motivation and success. The coaching process can be transformational for anyone who engages with personal coaching.

My role in the public sector involved working closely with HR managers and line managers in Bristol and Bath to recruit and retain staff with disabilities and long term health conditions.  I have a wide inside knowledge of recruitment processes and a great understanding of the pressures of managing staff which is a key strength for career coaching. I have a wealth of knowledge around supporting people with mental health issues, physical health challenges and learning differences which adds to my expertise as a life coach and career in Bristol and beyond!

I work within the core competencies and code of conduct from the International Coaching Federation and Association for Coaching.
