Kirsty Harvey

Kirsty Harvey - Kirsty Harvey Life Coaching – North Yorkshire


Kirsty Harvey Life Coaching offers one to one coaching for both personal and business clients. Success in coaching comes from building a strong, dynamic relationship between coach and client so that clients become more motivated and focused on success in every part of their lives, leading to improved business performance and a more fulfilling personal life. By clarifying goals, drawing up a plan of action and overcoming any obstacles, some real, tangible benefits can be achieved from coaching that may never have seemed possible. Many of my clients are successful business people already, who have perhaps lost focus in the day to day running of their lives and businesses. Coaching can re-establish that focus and help to restore drive and passion when life has become routine. It can also help you rebalance your life if you have lost sight of life outside work.

Kim McMuldrow - Moon Wind Shamanic Ways - Shropshire

I am a shamanic practitioner based in Shrewsbury. In these days of great challenge and change, we may 'lose' ourselves, sometimes to such an extent that we feel empty, unfulfilled or incomplete. Using time tested techniques I support and guide those struggling on their life journeys, bringing them back to a place of balance and empowerment. I also work with animals, offering a different concept in how we heal and sustain relationships with our animal companions. Shamanism is an ancient, profound and powerful practice, yet its relevance is as strong today as it has been since the dawn of time. For more details visit www.shamanicways.co.uk


Gilly Brown – Garden Divas - Hertfordshire


I run my own business Garden Divas, an online mail order website www.gardendivas.co.uk, supplying stylish, high quality gifts and products for the female gardener. Early 2008 we took it upon ourselves to launch a campaign locally to help the environment and what better place to start than our home town of Hitchin. Our idea was to try and get members of the community to ditch those plastic bags and shop with the fabulous range of shop boxes and bags that we have in stock. We have worked alongside Hitchin Initiative, www.htci.org.uk to promote these in the town, on the website and around the community. It was decided that £2.00 from the sale of each large shop box/ chic shopper would be donated to Hitchin Town Centre Initiative and £1.00 from the sale of the small shop boxes. We made the boxes and bags available from both the website, www.gardendivas.co.uk and in the Hitchin Initiative shop in the town centre. For more details contact Gilly Brown via the website www.gardendivas.co.uk

Debbie Brewer-West - Smoking Cessation Service – Cheshire

Allen Carr’s Easyway to Stop Smoking method offers the most successful documented method of stopping smoking on the planet. The Easyway method is unique: instead of concentrating on the reasons why smokers shouldn't smoke, it focuses on the reasons why they do smoke despite the obvious disadvantages! We don’t use lasers, patches, gum or other nicotine containing products. There are no shock tactics, no gimmicks, tricks or false props. We don’t even talk about the health scares. Most clients attend just one 5 hour small group session and become happy non-smokers immediately and permanently. However we do offer free booster sessions for three months after attending for the minority who need them. Easyway has a proven success rate in excess of 90%, based on claims made under our unique 3 month money back guarantee.
