 AAEAAQAAAAAAAAh-AAAAJGRhNjk3OTQ1LWExMmQtNDNhMS1iMzg3LTY4MjkwOWRmZDFmMQ“I have had the fortunate opportunity to have been coached by Maureen in a number of areas from personal development to application at work,  home and getting to know myself more. The experience, learning’s and techniques have been amazing and completely unique to anything I have ever experienced before in the area of personal development and have approached each different aspect of my life including work, home, physical fitness and my relationship with myself. Maureen is an excellent coach who I found to be understanding, empathetic and extremely flexible in her approach. She is a very unique person who makes the client feel important and always follows up. Therefore I highly recommend Maureen for anyone who requires coaching regardless of which area in their life they may want addressing and I am sure those that do, will consider themselves lucky to have had Maureen as a coach just as I have” Awais Awan, Saudi Arabia


Claire DiCarlo“I would not hesitate to recommend Maureen as a Life Coach and Mentor. She worked with me to take both my business and personal goals to the next level and it was great to have someone to keep me accountable to taking action. She also has an uncanny sense of intuition and can often sense your true desires, even when you yourself are still struggling to figure them out! It was fantastic to look back at the end of the process and see how far I’d come in just 6 months. Above all this, Maureen is extremely warm and friendly and put me at my ease instantly. It was amazing that I could receive such personalised and effective coaching from the other side of the world! ”   Claire DiCarlo, Australia

Stuart-Coia-photo-150x150 “In less than an hour of speaking with Maureen she ‘got’ me, understood exactly what my problem was, inspired me and fired me up to totally believe in myself again, and gave me specific advice and guidance as to how to turn any negative thoughts I may have into positive ones. I am now more focused on my vision and what my goals are for this year and can’t wait to get out there on tour and deliver what I can do!” Stuart Coia, Touring Golf Professional, Scotland

Zian Fred Norman“Maureen is a power house of positivity and everything she discusses you will find has resonance to your own particular journey…

‘Let go of things that do not serve you well!’.  

One of the best things anyone can do… Thanks Maureen… keep shining your light!” Zian Fred Norman, Scotland

“It’s hard to think that I am the same person I was when I first contacted Maureen. With her help I have completely eliminated what can only be described as a long standing and deeply rooted mental fear and have broken through all of my former comfort zones and limitations. I have grown continuously in confidence and self belief. She has given me the courage to face my fears, to stop procrastinating and to get on and do! This period has felt a bit like a symbolic rebirthing. She has  been the catalyst and instigator of real change in me. I cannot recommend Maureen and her coaching highly enough….” Mark Wiggins, Middlesex

Terri Evans“Maureen has been instrumental in improving my attitude, self-awareness, self-esteem as well as making me aware I am the most important person to myself.  I no longer settle for second best because I’m worth the best!  She has taught me to treat myself as I would my best friend; something I’ve never thought of before. She has been instrumental when it comes to telling me I have no limits except what I place on myself. She’s also shown me that happiness starts with me and to value and love myself unconditionally. I now breathe in fresh energy and breathe out letting go of my tensions. Maureen has taught me to begin each day as a chance for a fresh start.  I am thankful to Maureen for the Life Coaching she offers. She has affected my thinking in an extremely positive way. I am grateful for her continued support” Terri Evans, USA

FRASER-MCKENNA--150x150“I went to Maureen lacking confidence in my game and not seeing myself getting away from it on my own. In the first few sessions I already could see improvements in my overall approach to playing golf and have built up a much better confidence in my ability and what I can achieve. I now have a much better understanding of my thoughts and what messages I need to send myself while playing golf. This has spread through my whole game and I feel now that the work I am doing with Maureen can take me to another level that I wouldn’t have been able to achieve on my own. ” Fraser McKenna, Touring Golf Professional

Madir Mabbott“Maureen is extremely warm, supportive and engaging as a Life Coach (and indeed as a person). She brings great personal experience, passion and a very high level of knowledge and training to bear to support her clients. Coaching from her has been so effective I wish I had had the good sense to consult a third-party years ago and now regard it as a must-have tool for any professional, not just for health issues (which first brought me to her), but for broad career planning in general.” Madir Mabbott, Edinburgh

“I feel alive for the first time in years!  I feel I’ve finally found me…” Elizabeth Young, Edinburgh

“Mid life crisis perhaps. All I know is that for a good few years I had a feeling there was something else out for me – but what? My personal circumstances had changed and now was the time to face this ‘situation’ once and for all. I had had counselling before but working with Maureen was very different. She is warm, intuitive, listens well –  and carefully asks the both interesting and challenging questions. I couldn’t believe how quickly the pieces fell into place and I am now clear on my journey ahead and feel truly motivated towards achieving my goals.”   Carole Smith, Fife


silvana“Here I am, finally doing what I should be doing in order to become a life coach. Being a life coach has been my dream for over three years and up until now I have taken many steps in the right direction. However, the action I have taken was nothing new. I have enrolled in a course, read books, followed and listened to many life coaches and definitely expanded my knowledge but, the last and most important step was still missing. I kept telling myself that I wasn’t ready, that I was too busy, that I wouldn’t even know where to start.

Then, I spent one hour with Maureen and within that one hour she helped me see clearly that the only thing keeping me away from my dream was my fear of stepping into a new territory, where I must do something that I have never done before. With her kind words of encouragement and questions that I had been hiding from for a very long time, Maureen reminded me of the courage that I possess and that I can be that person that I always wanted to be.

‘You are going to be a great life coach girl’ – Maureen said to me – ‘Go out there and show the world what you’ve got’. So here I am, crushing through my terror barriers, on my way to becoming the best life coach I can be.

Am I still scared? NO, I AM TERRIFIED! But I am doing it anyway. Thank you Maureen Sharphouse for showing me the way!  

With love, Silvana xx”    Silvana Jeffs, Brighton, UK

Laura Murtagh

“”I first met Maureen at a Business Networking event in 2012. I was not in a positive frame of mind at the time and from the start she inspired me and helped me to feel better about myself and the direction my life was taking. I have had an awesome coaching session with Maureen and feel blessed to have been gifted with some of her precious time! I have taken so much from our talk and feel more positive, focused and alive! Maureen possesses a natural gift to help people see that every day is theirs to claim and anyone can live a life of no limits! Maureen you are my inspirations and I wish you all the love and happiness you deserve!.” Laura Murtagh, Perth

“Maureen is a really lovely lady to know and a brilliant life coach. I have my confidence back, am dating a fantastic man, have made a new circle of friends and have even had a promotion at work. I cannot thank Maureen enough and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.” Lorraine Burt, Edinburgh

Katherine 2“Maureen has helped me see that there are ways of managing my problems and life, and supported me in some very dark moments. She is very understanding towards me as a disabled person, and very understanding about the difficulties I face because of my complex multiple disabilities. I would recommend her to anybody, able-bodied or disabled. She has given me such valuable and impartial advice without ever judging me or criticizing me and has been a ray of light and support when I have had very little support elsewhere.” Katherine Hayward, Madrid, Spain


“When I first contacted Maureen I was very mixed up about my future. I was 56 years old, suffering from ‘flown the nest’ syndrome of my daughters leaving home, also the harrowing deaths of my only brother, swiftly followed by my mum. I felt gutted and directionless. Over the weeks Maureen has given me self-worth, confidence and a real purpose to achieve things that I would never have believed I could achieve.  Her calming voice, and structural way of getting me through my problems have been so encouraging. She has given me back all my lost confidence. I have found 2 volunteering jobs that have turned my life around completely- that a year ago I could never have imagined I could have done. I am so grateful to Maureen. She is an amazing coach who has helped transform my life.” Jane, Bristol

Luke Groves“Just had an amazing 1 to 1 with Maureen. Maureen Sharphouse is a lovely lady and 100% brilliant mind coach. Recommended to all professional golfers!” Luke Groves, Golf Professional, London

“When I first contacted Maureen I was a worrier. I was low in confidence and self belief and was doubting my ability in my sport and in my role as a coach. Although I had previously been very successful at a highly competitive level I was without motivation, clear direction or goals. I didn’t feel passionate about my job or my life. Maureen’s coaching has changed all that. When she helped me realise that it was myself that was putting all the negative pictures and voices in my head that were chipping away at my confidence it was a real light bulb moment! I have grown hugely in self belief over the last few months, and have acquired the most amazing new senior coaching role. I am hungry to pass on my skills and have enormous pride in my ability. I have pushed through my former comfort zones and am now a strong coach, sportsman and  leader. I cannot recommend Maureen’s coaching highly enough.” Lawrence, Senior Sports Coach, Scotland

Lesley Ann StewartMaureen Sharphouse“A VIP Strategy Intensive Day with Maureen was a great way to refocus how I want my life to be and learn how to not let others negativity effect my own. The day was massively beneficial in me focusing on my happiness and helped reinstall a new found belief in myself and what I can achieve. Thank you Maureen! To anyone who is thinking about do this. Do it! It really is invaluable. ” Lesley-Ann Stewart, Edinburgh

“Maureen is an insightful and talented coach who will help you quite quickly work out what you do and do not want in your life. In one session I had a clearer picture of what I wanted to focus on in life!” Pam R. Edinburgh

“Maureen Sharphouse is amazing. I had always thought my disability meant I couldn’t do the same things my friends did. Maureen has helped me realise I just have to concentrate on ‘how’. I am now excited about my future and have just got a place at college and aim to eventually have my own business. Thank you doesn’t seem enough to say  to Maureen. She has totally changed my life.” Louise D., Fife

“Maureen has equipped me with strategies and confidence to tackle issues head on and not to shy away any more. Thanks to Maureen’s life coaching I have found my voice and am loving being me! ” Rebecca M.,  Fife
