Without Fran I would have quit my business and spent the rest of my life miserably wishing for more, while holding myself back at every opportunity. She is straight talking, dependable, compassionate. If you’re unsure whether or not you need a mindset coach, or debating what Fran can bring to your life, I have only one suggestion – and that’s to start working with her, because I can guarantee that your only regret will be that you didn’t find her sooner.
Where would I be without Fran? Well, I’m not going to lie, I’d probably be shuffling my CV off to anyone with a job opening, spending my Saturdays crying into another tub of ice cream, watching Unbroken for the gizzilonth time, wondering where my grit and determination went, looking at my abandoned home office and the shrivelled dream of
running my own business.
I started my own business for all the wrong reasons. I was using it as a quick fix to leave a job. Scrolling through social media it was far too easy to find hundreds of other small business owners absolutely killing it and I thought, well if they can do it, so can I.
After a first successful month however, the panic started to creep in. I had forgotten to take into account how drastically filtered the ‘social’ world in which we live today is.
All of a sudden, I was questioning every minute detail – why had my clients hired me? Did they not know what I do is insanely easy (to me anyway) and that they could do it themselves for free? Did they not realise there were lots of other businesses out there with
years’ more experience and a much larger team? Were my prices too high, or worse, were they too low? Why were more people asking to work with me, did they just book a discovery call out of pity?
When the self-doubt finally stopped for a second, the overwhelm kicked in. But, instead of knuckling down and getting on, like a deer caught in headlights, I just froze. I had no routine,no goals, no business plan. While I knew exactly what needed doing, I didn’t know why I was doing it.
After the procrastination came the anxiety. Once the work was done, there was the gut-wrenching fear of putting it out there to the world with my name on. And my name only.
There was no-one else to hide behind if something wasn’t perfect. And it wasn’t perfect, because I was too busy self-doubting and leaving it until last minute, meaning everything was overly rushed and sloppy.
I was spiralling in the wrong direction. While simultaneously comparing myself to others who had started their business before I had even sat GCSEs.
I genuinely don’t know how I found about Fran. It’s weird because I remember actively searching for her podcast, but I don’t know why. After listening to a few podcast episodes, I went to follow her on Instagram and found I already was. Now – I could say the universe
delivered Fran to me because I needed her… but Fran isn’t ‘woo’ and if you’re not either I would hate to put you off working with her. I think everything Fran and I talk about has a study available to back it up, and her NLP methods are all rooted in science too. Every day is a learning day. Since I started working with Fran it’s like I have been given a new set of eyes from which to view the world. Fran is compassionate and such an excellent listener, I often feel like I’m talking to a much wiser version of myself, who just gets it and instantly knows the answers; what to do next; how to reframe a negative situation. With her support I’ve not only been able to overcome the mindset issues which were preventing me from growing my new business, she’s also been a personal cheerleader and has opened my eyes to so much potential and possibility which I never in a million years would have considered.
Putting the business aside too. The tools and the techniques, the awareness and mindfulness, everything which Fran teaches me, I find use for in so many other areas of my life. Family, friends, hobbies, are all being enriched by my new mental capacity and changed attitude and approach to life.
I still have wobbly days, but I can now cope so much better. And if it’s something I’ve not dealt with before, I know Fran is always at the end of Voxer.
Working with Fran has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. Not just for my business, which I absolutely would have chickened out of, or unconsciously self-sabotaged, but for my entire life. If you’re debating whether or not you need a mindset coach, or are wondering what Fran can do for you, I have only one suggestion – and that’s to get going and start working with her now, because I can guarantee that the only regret you’ll have is that you didn’t start working with her years ago.”
Victoria Rose – Vine Media Relations And Roselily gundogs (Programme: 1:1)
“When I met Fran I really resonated with her own journey and felt like I could really open up to her. I had been struggling a lot with a big fear of failure, a lack of self belief and a lot of procrastination. I was my biggest enemy and I knew that had to change.
Working with Fran was incredible, her no nonsense approach was really great for me and she helped me dig right to the cause of my struggles and start to change how I was thinking. I had some hugely important mindset shifts while working with her and have overall become a lot more conscious of my thoughts and especially how I talk to myself. Not only is she a fantastic coach and mentor but she also feels like an amazing friend. I can’t wait to work with her again and I would encourage anyone who feels like they aren’t reaching their full potential to do the same.”
Sarah Leonie – Coach (Programme: 1:1)
Had an EFT session with Fran today and I cannot recommend trying this modality strongly enough! I mean, working with Fran is ALWAYS magical but today her guiding me through my sh*t with EFT was another level. Fran you’re like the Mary Poppins of mindset coaching! Your bag of tricks is just bottomless!
Carla Shohet, Wild Mother (Programme: 1:1 EFT)
Working with Fran has been brilliant. She rescued me from feeling totally overwhelmed and brought me to a place where I am now extremely confident and powering on in my business. Thank you Fran, I would recommend you to anyone. Xx
Moira Doherty, Business Coach for over 45s moiradohertybusinesscoach.com (Programme: 1:1)
Absolutely loved my afternoon with Fran. Before the session I was feeling overwhelmed, I was going after every opportunity that came along, and I couldn’t see the wood for the trees! What can I say, my session with Fran gave me the clarity I needed. I now have the direction of my new business mapped out, I am clear on my purpose, I have a plan to manage my time in alignment with my lifestyle goals, and my mind feels so much more at ease. Excited to head into this new chapter feeling in control and clear about where I’m going. Thank you Fran!
Rosie Mead, The aligned athlete (Programme: 1:1 VIP ½ day)
“I’ve been working with Fran for over a year now. It’s been brilliant to know that I can send my VIP strategy clients to her when they have any kind of mindset blocks that they need to work through and know that I have the best coach to help them through it. And many times it has meant the difference between someone being able to have amazing results or average results. Fran is approachable, brilliant at communication and just really easy to work with (she’s also just a really nice fun person to know!)”
Lisa Johnson – Multi 7 Figure Business Strategist – lisajohnsoncoaching.co.uk
“Someone had mentioned Fran’s podcast in a Facebook group & I was HOOKED immediately. I felt like for the first time ever someone had made me feel like I wasn’t alone & that I wasn’t going insane with all the mindset battles I was dealing with being an entrepreneur 😂 Fran speaks the REAL truth about what it’s like to be a business owner but at the same time still inspires & pushes me to do so much more! I applied to work with her within just a couple of weeks despite having just finished up coaching with another coach.
My 4 months of coaching with Fran have literally been life-changing. I’m in a much better place in both my personal life & my business. I have completely overcome my fear of getting visible & feeling like I wasn’t good enough for my clients & as a result I feel MUCH better about selling with confidence. She has called me out on a lot of BS 😂 I’m happier, I appreciate life more & I’m a lot more patient with myself & my business.
Fran has also taught me to work confidently on my own now whereas before I could barely make a decision on what to have for dinner without asking my whole extended family first!
I loved our time together, she is so open & warm & she was always there for me on Voxer in between calls whenever a mindset battle came up! Like a true biz bestie 😅 plus the GIF convos 😜
I couldn’t recommend working with Fran enough – Thank you so much for all you have taught me & continue to teach me with the tools I’ve now got. You are a rare diamond ❤”
Caroline Carlsen – Business Mentor – (Programme 1:1)
“I had a one off one hour session with Fran. I thought we were going to work on my money mindset, turns out that is absolutely fine but my limiting beliefs were elsewhere! Fran is an amazing intuitive who can quickly work out exactly what the problem is and what needs to be worked on. She offered so much amazing advice and I left the one hour session buzzing with lots of incredible ideas. It was such an extraordinary and beneficial hour that has really helped me and my business. I would not hesitate to recommend her to other people and I look forward to working with her again in the future! Thank you Fran. X”
Vic Wood, Greenerbeauty.com (1:1)
I had an amazing Power Hour with Fran. Her energy was amazing and such a smiley face. More importantly though was her authenticity, I felt certain she understood me and genuinely wanted to help me get unstuck. Which she did. I have since listened to many of her pod casts and sought help from the Positive Pants Community and I am very grateful for all the help and support! Thank you Fran, keep doing what you’re doing xx
Lorna Webley – Norla Permanent makeup (1:1)
“I had a session with Fran as I was struggling in business and my coach felt it was due to a mindset issue. Convinced that all the work I was doing on money mindset wasn’t getting me far, I just couldn’t work out what was stopping me moving forward in my business. Fran was amazing, asking the right questions to help me uncover the real reason I was self sabotaging and it wasn’t the money as I thought. But more I had been suppressing the real me for so long. Fran encouraged me to take action, baby steps to start and helped me to rediscover a part of me I had buried. I am so much happier in my life now and I know this will pay off for my business. I can’t wait to see what the future holds. I am extremely grateful to Fran for helping me step out of the comfort zone and back into my zone of genius and go for what I want from life. I would recommend a session with Fran to anyone who lives frustrated unable to see what is causing you to move from where you are to where you want to be and I hope to work with Fran in again in the Future.”
Jenni Bush – The Equine Business Assistant – TheEquineBusinessAssistant.co.uk (1:1)
“I am so grateful for the one hour call I had with Fran. It gave me so much clarity where I was feeling very stuck. I am a practitioner in EFT, Matrix Reimprinting and a Transformational Coach, so I know a bit about mindset. However, like everyone, I need someone to help me find my own blindspots and Fran is great at that! She quickly found that I was doing things not aligned to my values and asked all the right questions for me to move forward. That call took me from a place of uncertainty and anxiety to a place of relief, excitement and drive! I am so grateful for my newfound direction. Thank you Fran!”
Zainab Mohiuddin – Transformational Coach (1:1)
I worked 1:1 with Fran last year during one of her Power Hours. I instantly felt comfortable with Fran, and like I was chatting with an old friend!
Her warmth and energy shines through and it’s so obvious Fran genuinely cares about people and wants to help.
I was given actionable tips which I continue to use now, and these helped me with productivity straight away – I get more done, faster!
Fran’s amazing, and having worked with her 1:1, I’ve become a regular listener to her Positive Pants Podcast, and her Instagram – stories and posts – continue to light up my feed 💖 xx
Nicky Booton – Empowerment coach nickybootoncoaching.co.uk (1:1)
“Fran is an excellent coach breaking through money mindset barriers and her mentoring really was an eye opener for me. I would highly recommend Fran for one to one coaching sessions. I know I will be back for more when I have moved along with my business strategies.”
Laura Charles, Reviva Weddings (1:1)
I’m a phycologist and entrepreneur and I wanted to come on here to speak about my experience of Fran Excell’s SOS programme which I have just completed and I have to say that out of a lot of online programmes that I have completed this has been really the most enjoyable I have ever studied. Fran is an excellent mentor for success and as an entrepreneur, if you are an entrepreneur, you will know there are a huge amount of emotions involved when you’re building up, starting up, or running the business or trying to scale up – there are lots of mind gremlins that come up and sabotage us without us even knowing it. Even as a seasoned psychologist I found Fran’s teachings incredible. She has such a great way of explaining the why and how’s of the scientific parts of the stuff that otherwise may sound a little bit woo woo. That is really important for me that cognitive understanding of the subjects she teaches really really helps me to feel motivated to actually practise the tools and techniques that she teaches. I found the course really really doable with life, it didn’t make me feel overwhelmed which is great because overwhelm is one of the things I hoped to get over. They are really helpful tools you can use in life, not just in business. I have also tried them with my kids and that has been really helpful and that is what I love about the course is that all the things I learned and I was able to put into practise have really given me tangible results. I really can see how my mindset has shifted, how it is affecting my thought patterns and behaviours and as a result everyone around me benefits whether it is in business or in my personal life. I can never recommend highly enough working with Fran. She is an excellent mindset mentor and success mentor so if you are having any thoughts or behaviors that are holding you back from success don’t hesitate, work with Fran. I have absolutely loved the SOS programme and I love the fact that I can go back to the modules and she offers so much techniques and tools that you can go back to and practice over and over again and lots of further reading which is fantastic. Thank you so much Fran I couldn’t have hoped for more or better from this course. I have absolutely loved it.
Carla Shohet, Wild mother – Programme – SOS! (Success Over Stress)
What were you struggling with before the SOS! group programme? What did a typical day look like for you? I felt very stressed and overwhelmed across all all areas of my life and that I was struggling to spin all the plates.
What made you want to sign up? I wanted to make a change in my life but was at a loss as to where to start. This programme with Fran offered the strategies and tools that I knew could help me manage my monkey mind.
Did joining the program impact your life at all? If so, please explain. Yes it did, the wealth of awesome knowledge, a-ha moments and tools that the programme provides really help you to work with how you are feeling inn the moment to support you to move through it. Additionally, the more I used the tools the less I have these peaks and valleys in my stress episodes. I have also noticed I have lessened my mindless numbing behaviours as much i.e. food and binge tv
Please share any accomplishments or “wins” you’ve experienced since joining the program. (No matter how small you might think they are!) Like I mentioned above. I feel that I have the control and that everything is a choice – I choose how I feel, I have the power and tools to feel it and shift it. I don’t place that now on outside forces as much. It’s a work in progress.
How would you say you’re feeling about your business/life after working with Fran? Pretty awesome – very empowered and excited for the what next. It’s really sparked me to go deeper into understanding myself and not feel as overwhelmed by it.
What would you say to someone considering joining SOS! with Fran? Do it – the tools and knowledge you get are game changers!
Rachel: Programme: SOS! (Success Over Stress)
What were you struggling with before the SOS! group programme? What did a typical day look like for you? A too busy story going around and around in my head
What made you want to sign up? Knowing how knowledgeable Fran is and wanting to have access to all her amazing tools.
Did joining the program impact your life at all? If so, please explain. Absolutely! Having the tools there to help you get through a tough stressful situation made all the difference in the world.
Please share any accomplishments or “wins” you’ve experienced since joining the program. (No matter how small you might think they are!) I have just launched my subscription box and found the program really beneficial to help me with stress levels during that launch.
How would you say you’re feeling about your business/life after working with Fran? Good! Positive and happy 🙂 I know that the way I feel starts and ends with me and I am the only one telling myself stories that are not true. I very quickly pick up on negative talk and words that i use now.
What would you say to someone considering joining SOS! with Fran? Sign up to this course! This program will teach you SO much that you will use over and over again until it becomes second nature and subconscious. I cant recommend it enough! I think the portal was brilliant. The score board was also such a great idea! Thoroughly enjoyed it and I know ill continue to use the tools. Thankyou Fran!! Xx
Kerrie, In2 Health (Programme: SOS!Success Over Stress)
What were you struggling with before the SOS! group programme? What did a typical day look like for you? So usual days were never really a problem for me, but I started to collate lapses of time where I would get bouts of panic attacks and anxiety (usually brought on from overloading my plate!)
What made you want to sign up? I knew that things were unlikely calm down (we always tell ourselves, next week will be calmer as entrepreneurs!) so I really needed to develop some coaching strategies asap, or to find way to make it just ‘stop’
Did joining the program impact your life at all? If so, please explain. After starting the program, I had this fabulous initial period of calm – I was taking action! I absolutely threw myself into trying all of the different techniques Fran gave us. We could work at our own pace, and fit it to where we needed.
Please share any accomplishments or “wins” you’ve experienced since joining the program. (No matter how small you might think they are!) Panic attacks have stoped 100% since, I think because I can understand and see the signs and react before anything goes too far. I LOVE understandingh the science behind what is happening, it makes it so much more rational sense! Anxiety doesn’t just go away, but I feel super capable of dealing with it.
How would you say you’re feeling about your business/life after working with Fran? Calmer, positive and excited.
What would you say to someone considering joining SOS! with Fran? I would absolutely recommend this course for anyone dealing with anxiety, or even just looking to understand it more! Fab course! I loved it! It was a great way to get to the core of it all and take some responsibility for our own issues rathert than expecting things or people to rescue/fix it. Thank you Fran xx

Did working with Fran impact your business (or life in general) at all? Yes! Omg, my life has completely changed! My business focus has completely changed! I now only have one business, one purpose and I’m walking my soul path. How can I even start to explain what it’s like… I finally saw the almost invisible thread that had run through EVERYTHING I’ve ever enjoyed doing in my life, the thread that has run through all that I’m about… it’s like finding the beginning and the end of that thread and being able to tie it together. Thanks to Fran, I found out who I am at the very core of my soul by discovering the common denominator of what I am about in this life, it’s absolutely priceless!
Please share any accomplishments or “wins” you’ve experienced sinceworking with Fran. The wins have been plentiful! To name a few of the biggest ones, I created a fantastic community of devout followers who I can help to improve their lives. I have connected with the most amazing business peer group.

How would you say you’re feeling about your business/life after working with Fran? Ecstatic, motivated, fired up, crystal clear and with laser focus on where I’m headed and on who I am becoming.
What is a typical “day” like for you now after your work with Fran? I don’t press snooze on the alarm! I jump out of bed and I’m super excited about the work that’s ahead. I work at home next to my husband, which was always a dream! I can take my dogs out when I want to and I can take my kids and pick them up from school every day! My day feels exciting, fulfilling and I feel inspired and happy knowing that by doing what I love, I can really help and positively impact millions of people and at the same there is no cap on the wealth and time freedom that I can create for my life. I am so grateful to Fran, she had been truly key to changing my life to one I could have only dreamed of before working with her.
What was it that made you want to sign up? I knew Fran well enough to know that she has huge integrity and a big heart of gold, so I trusted her when she said that this was the right thing for me to sign up to. She was never pushy and I felt her approach really came from a place that is wanting to serve, I haven’t looked back. Best investment I’ve EVER made, be it for business or personal development.
What would you say to someone considering working with Fran? Don’t hesitate! Working with Fran really could change your life, don’t cheat yourself out of this opportunity, you deserve to live the life you dream of, and Fran can help you make it a reality.
Carla Shohet, CarlaShohet.com (Programme: One to Many)
Working with Fran during the OTM programme was so beneficial. When you combine her unique ability to zero in on just what mind gremlins are holding you back with the practical know-how from Lisa’s programme, you have the perfect combination. Throw in a wonderfully supportive group and you have lots of people on your side – every one of them wanting you to succeed. I’m not sure I would be where I am without Fran’s skills in identifying the many ways I was standing in my own way!
Danielle Hone, The Real Mee box (Programme One to many)
Fran’s bonus is amazing and compliments the OTM course so well. The Facebook group that comes with the bonus is a lovely supportive community and it’s great to see everyone progress week on week. Having Fran in your corner will really add to your motivation and self belief and it’s always been clear that she genuinely cares about everyone she works with. The meditations are also really good to help you believe in yourself and get excited about your future and the 1-1 I had with Fran opened my eyes to lots of positive changes I can easily make. I’d really recommend Fran’s bonus because working on my mindset with her has really given me the self belief to put OTM in to action. It’s helped me put myself out there more which as a result has increased the speed my audience is growing. It’s the perfect bonus to go with OTM and I would highly recommend it.
Tracey Dean (Programme: One to many)
“Working with Fran was instrumental for building my business foundations. When I joined Fran’s Mastermind, I was ready to 100% dedicate my time and energy to my business and that included investing in myself and my business, as well as networking with like-minded female business owners!
When I made this decision, it was a no-brainer to join Fran. I had been following Fran on Instagram, Facebook and her Podcast for quite a few months after a friend recommended her as a coach to follow. From that very first discovery call, I knew that Fran’s approach was going to be perfect for me and my business journey.
Fran has so much beautiful knowledge about business – from mind-set coaching, to business strategy and tried-and-tested practical recommendations (apps to use, platforms she likes, books to read). I devoured everything that was shared with me to start building the foundations of my business.
Since being part of the Mastermind, I have launched my website, created a lead magnet, built an email list, launched a blog, built my IG following, started a Facebook Group, hosted a 3-day challenge, launched my first online masterclass training, attracted new 121 clients, and built so much confidence along the way!
THANK YOU Fran for everything! You are always there to answer questions, to guide us when mind-set gremlins get the better of us, and celebrate our successes. It’s a fantastic Mastermind and I’m so grateful for the opportunity to work with you and meet the lovely ladies within the group. You’ve created a super supportive group that attracts women that are ready to lift and celebrate other women!”
Becky Stanton – Mindset Coach – beckystanton.com (Programme: Mastermind)
“What would I do without Fran Excell in my life? I’ve known Fran for 3 years and have been part of her incredible Proactive Pants Mastermind for 9 months. The group is full of incredible ladies who are so supportive and Fran is the perfect leader. She’s full of wisdom, has a mindset strategy for every problem and is also a wonderful, fun friend.
Fran really takes the time to get to know her clients so she can offer the best support. She knows that when I’m in overwhelm I hide so I often need a friendly boot up the butt to get the support I need. Fran is an expert in uncovering the root behind a pattern or thought (it’s often not what you think!) and has given me so much insight into my own mind and behaviour as well as the tools to develop and just be a happier person.
My business has progressed this year because of my work with Fran. I’ve said yes to projects that scare me and have met my goals because Fran’s taught me how to get out of a negative hole more easily. Thank you Fran! ”
Chloe Burroughs, study skills trainer for returning students chloeburroughs.com (Programme: Mastermind)
“Fran has been fantastic at not only helping me conquer my mindset gremlins but also at helping me make the right choices and stay on track within my business. She is a positive ray of sunshine and no problem is too big. What I love most is that she is totally real and will give you that kick up the butt when you need it, in as honest and nice a way possible. She’s full of knowledge and really wants the best for you which I believe can be hard to find and really makes a difference on your journey. Being in Fran’s mastermind has really provided me with the support and guidance I have needed when I’ve been going through some difficult times within my business. We all have moments of self sabotage which can hinder our process and stop us moving forward but having the support of Fran checking in regularly, keeping me accountable and helping me work through some of the blockages I’ve had, has been invaluable. There is no getting away with excuses with Fran because she helps you see where you’re holding yourself back so you can push through the gremlins and take action, which is something I really needed. I am forever grateful for all her support, encouragement and knowledge!”
Keeley Dann, Self love & Relationship coach (Programme: Mastermind)
“Fran has pulled me from the depths of overwhelm, procrastination and every other mindset gremlin available in just a few weeks. There was nothing else left for me to self-sabotage, so when I saw Fran’s Mastermind, I took a deep breath and dived right in. What a revelation! Fran’s unwavering positivity and her uncanny ability to see what actually needs doing has literally turned my life around. I’m now moving forward after almost a year of being stuck.
The wonderfully varied group of women in the mastermind group means there are different and valuable view points in discussions and their support is incredible.
Fran is the Real Deal; no cookie-cutter coaching here. She is authentic and unfailingly generous with her advice and encouragement; I couldn’t have chosen a better mentor.”
Carole Hallett Mobbs, Expat Expert – expatability.net(Programme: Mastermind)
“So where to start…. I am a very capable person but through various moments in my life I have created “blockages” to which in turn has stopped me creating the dreams into reality and just taking that jump.
Though procrastination, self doubt and many other things I was getting in my own way. So an amazing friend found Fran and recommend the group. I arranged a call 3 months ago when I started I was ready shaking there were a few tears I had lost a lot of my confidence. I had a immediate connection and felt I was in safe hands so I signed up to the mastermind! Best decision I ever made. My confidence is growing, I have got some big tasks done that were really not that scary once I actually 54321 cracked on with it. I am getting so much better in all areas in my life. The first thing I wanted to achieve was ‘to feel in control’ as for such a long time I hadn’t. But i really can say with total honesty ‘I feel in control’ thanks to the guidance and skills of The Queen of positive Pants herself. The ladies in the group are also a massive support and everyone has such a different background they all have something or know someone that can help with whatever snags or gremlins we come up against. Or supporting with such positive encouragement, you really can’t go wrong with the lovely Fran”.
Martine Jones, Freelance Makeup artist and yoga teacher (Programme, Mastermind and 1:1)
“As a member of Fran’s Proactive Pants Mastermind, I’ve made dramatic advances with my business. I’m on track to finally publish my first book that I’ve been thinking about for over a year! Plus her support goes beyond just business goals – she and the other members also support everything you tackle, including home, family, health, and wellness.”
Brandi Johnson, Marketing made easy, just ask heybrandi.com (Programme: Mastermind)
“Fran is super supportive and knowledgeable. Always going above and beyond she brings warmth and kindness to practical solutions packed with information and tips that propel you forward in no time. She has a way of getting the best from you and drawing out the details of what you really want to achieve and what’s holding you back so you can progress at lighting speed. If you ever get the opportunity to work with her, grab it!”
Tracy Gilmour (1:1)
“Fran is a lovely and warm person and very driven to bring out the best of someone so they can create a better and successful life. Thanks Fran for being who you are.”
Frederick, Tech specialist (1:1)
“As a very new business the support I have received from Fran has been invaluable from keeping me accountable to helping me challenge my thought gremlins. The positive pants mastermind enabled me to not only gain expertise and knowledge from Fran but also the experience of my fellow group members. Highly recommend this programme.” –

“I recently went through a tough time both professionally and personally. Daily challenges left me questioning my abilities and making excuses for why I couldn’t live the life I truly wanted. Fran listened to my concerns and helped me to see the positives in my situation; she encouraged me to stop putting things off but to have the confidence to take immediate action. Thank you Fran!”

“Fran has been the cheerleader I’ve needed my whole life! Since starting my sessions I’ve gathered a momentum I couldn’t find before. I feel like my energy has shifted with the new mindset Fran has helped me achieve. I’ve hidden my light for far too long, and now Fran has helped me see this is my time to shine, making me excited about life’s possibilities again!”

“Fran’s positivity means that you come away from each session believing the impossible is possible, which obviously it is! Everyone can benefit from a positivity pill! She is a positive ray of light, and after every session I feel such a sense of “get up and go”. There is so much more than just this answer I have gained from sessions with Fran… she is a gem! She was born to make other ladies feel better and positive, and in some enchanting way has given me the get up and go attitude about certain things for me right now ”
J – Antique Furniture Restorer (1:1)
“I feel like I came to Fran when I was at a bit of a crossroads in my life. I lacked confidence and felt like I had lost my own identity and vision. Since working with Fran I feel like I have learnt skills to flip around my mindset. When I start doubting myself I feel better equipped to boast my own confidence and see things from a higher, more positive perspective.”
C – Freelance Marketing (1:1)
“Fran was able to make me reflect on myself and look at things in ways I would have never thought. She was able to pick out the key bits of what I was saying and make me reflect on my feelings in a new way decoding my thought process. She would get me thinking and talking about things on a much deeper level than I have ever done in the past which I feel has helped me get to the bottom of a number of key issues that were unknowingly impacting my life. Working with Fran helped me establish methods to gain more control in my life and my insecurities. I feel since working with Fran I am more assured, have more clarity over my future and am better equipped to deal with daily life.”
“Fran’s coaching has led to a whole different way of thinking for me. Various situations in day to day life were really starting to take their toll on my personal life and health, but she has helped me to adapt my interpretation of these moments, through a variety of explanations and examples. I would highly recommend a coaching session with Fran, – I got a new perspective which I can now continue forward with – thank you!”
“Fran has been amazing, listening to everything and then knowing when to push me for answers or suggestions. I love that she noticed the little things while we were speaking, that I didn’t necessarily know that I had let on, either in my voice or words!”
R – Events manager (1:1)
“Fran has truly been such a positive influence on my life and way of thinking. Before I met Fran I had so many mental blocks about situations in my life that I didn’t know where to start … Fran has given me the tools to address these issues and create a more positive outlook on my life. I thoroughly recommend working with Fran and intend use her services in future.”
