Hello and welcome, I'm Barbara Babcock

Health and wellness coaching to rebuild and renew your life after a serious health issue
When a serious, life-changing health issue strikes, I support you, whether you have the health issue or are in the caring role, to:
Deal effectively with the emotional impact
Navigate the many changes
Create a ‘new normality’
Reclaim meaning and purpose in your life
I empower you to return to wellness, and stay there.
Because you matter. Because your experiences and life are important.
Through working with people in a similar situation to you and from firsthand experience, I have seen the impact a serious health issue can have. There is a longing for one’s old life coupled with concerns and questions regarding the future. Yet there is also the hope and desire to find purpose and meaning again, and turn that into real change.
I supported these people to make that change happen. To create a ‘new normality’ within the reality of their changed bodies. To find their way back to a sense of happiness and wellbeing. To look forward to the future again.
We may connect directly, through your employer, a charity, support group, or your solicitor.
