Jessica Adams Coaching

Soul Alignment Coach for Midlife Women.

A bit about me...

I help highly-driven midlife women let go of anxiety, overwhelm and exhaustion, get mental clarity and make empowered, energising decisions so they can create the impact and income they desire in the second half of their life. 

 

Working together one to one, I show them how to feel peaceful and at ease in themselves, reconnect with their confidence, joy and sense of purpose, and show up powerfully in their business or career feeling excited, expansive and fully aligned with the essence of who they are.

 

I have been supporting women through major life transitions for over a decade, first as a Childbirth Educator, Doula and Pre/Postnatal Teacher and now as a Soul Alignment Coach for Midlife Women. 

 

I have trained with the world leader’s in women’s health, including the Integrative Women’s Health Institute, Burrell Education and Menopause Yoga, and take a holistic approach to all aspects of women’s emotional, physical, spiritual and financial health through the peri- to postmenopause transition.

 

I went through an early menopause age 42, which took a while to come to terms with at first, yet has ultimately been one of the most empowering and transformative experiences of my life. 

 

I live in the Mendips, UK, with my two sons, husband and spaniel Billy in our dream eco-house with views of the hills all around. I love painting, cycling, cold water swimming, surfing, dance, yoga, being outdoors in nature as much as possible, and am currently working towards my first belt in karate!

 

A bit more about me

What's the most enjoyable thing about your work?
Holding a powerful space for women to feel heard, held and allow themselves to be vulnerable as they explore what it is they most desire in the second half of their lives. I love helping them make sense of how their body, mind and hormones are shifting and changing in the late 30s through early 50s. And showing them how they can thrive through this transformative phase of the woman's life cycle without feeling lost, alone or sidelined by perimenopause and menopause. I truly believe menopause is the best thing that could happen for your business!

What is your vision for your business?
To help women feel peaceful, grounded and at ease with themselves through the peri- to postmenopause transition so that they can step powerfully into leadership roles and fully embody the years of wisdom, skills and experience they have behind them.

If you could give one single piece of advice to a new start up business, what would it be?
Slow down to speed up – if you're rushing around being busy then you'll miss the intuitive hits that are the genius and creativity that will make your business unique.

Which business person or company do you admire most and why?
I admire any woman who is courageous enough to be vulnerable, ask for help and is 100% done with doing it all by herself.

Which one phrase or quote sums up your attitude to business life?
The point is to begin and see where the journey takes you.

What made you join WMB and how do you plan to make the most of the network?
I joined WMB following a recommendation from a friend and subsequent invite to lunch. I plan to make the most of the network by setting the intention to notice and ask where I can be of help – rather than to see what I can get out of the network.

What is your worst experience in business or work?
Teaching general yoga was actually my worst experience in business, it was the first time when I thought: 'I think this is what people mean when they say they're doing a job they hate.' I've always loved the work that I do, so was surprised to be feeling this way. I need to feel that I have a purpose, which is why I love having a focus and a niche that serves women in a very specific way and draws on all my skills and experience – writing, teaching, science of women's health, physiology, deep listening and powerful coaching.

What was your first ever job?
Making candy floss in the cafe that travelled with our family circus.

Where is your favourite place in the world and why?
Greece. Gorgeous in every way – food, people, landscape, sea, history, culture.
