Your front seat passenger to guide and support you on your journey

Zoe Thompson Life coach Bristol

There was a time when I knew I was capable of so much more but had lost the confidence to make the changes I wanted to make and live the life I wanted. 

Summer 2005 was my catalyst to change. 


I took the first steps on a journey of physical, mental and emotional growth, working on my mindset, confidence and wellbeing. 

I learnt to work to my strengths.

I aligned my life to my core values.

I built on my personal and professional experiences. 

I found the confidence to walk my path in my way. 

My journey has helped me become the best version of myself.

I then invested time and energy to learn and understand the tools and strategies to help others.

Now I am helping others to rise and be the best version of themselves.

If you are ready to rise, then I am ready to guide and support you on your journey.  

In 2016 Zoe was featured by Redbull TV who followed her Strongwoman competitive journey.  Zoe has appeared on Radio, TV and Podcasts, and is often asked to tell her story as a guest speaker. 

Speech Quote Marks

I think the most important part of what makes Zoe an amazing coach, is that she comes from a place of experience in many different ways.

She has coached herself through some extraordinary experiences, and therefore knows exactly how it feels and exactly what to say.

She has never judged me or been anything but fully supportive and positive,  she simply uses her skills to make sure I make the best choices next time for myself.”
