Rebuild and renew your life after a serious health issue

through health and wellness coaching and programmes

Barbara Babcock health and wellness coach

Hello and welcome, I'm Barbara Babcock

Health & Wellness Coach, Facilitator, Researcher

When a serious 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, and your life is important.

Through working with people in a similar situation to you and from my own experience with serious illness and being in the caring role, I have seen the impact a serious health issue can have. There is a longing for your 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 have a quality of life and restored confidence, to enjoy life and look forward to the future again.

We may connect directly, or through your employer, a charity, support group, healthcare professional or solicitor.
