Rachel Woods | Coach in Nature


Gerdi with Rachel Woods on making yourself redundant and coaching in Nature

Rachel Woods lives in Somerset in the UK with her two dogs.

In 2020 she left a thriving career in HR behind to fully commit to coaching and supervision. She now is the ‘Coach in Nature’ with Nature — or “Mrs N” as she likes to call her — as her business partner.

To become the ‘Coach in Nature’ she earned a Master in Science degree in Coaching and Behavioural Change in 2018.

She is accredited by the European Mentoring and Coaching Council as a Senior Practitioner. She’s a member of several professional coaching bodies and a qualified coach supervisor.

All this is to say, that my guest is extremely qualified to do what she does.

She helps her clients recognise and leverage their strengths and talents in order to develop an authentic leadership style and does so in tandem with her business partner and co-creator, Mrs N.

It is very clear how much Nature means to her and that it’s not just another tool in her coaching bag. Nature is an integral part of her life and her work.

Rachel is the host of the brilliantly named podcast ‘Thought Garden’ on which she reaches out to promote personal development with mother Nature and human nature in mind.
