A trot around the Paddock with me and Berty, and an invitation to see if what I have to share here is a fit for you and your situation. If the topic of fulfilling your potential, doing something meaningful, finding your passion, or what you plan to do with your one wild and precious life changes every week, my work is about that.
Welcome to the Paddock. This is the place, for people with way too many ideas, who really want to make a difference, and/or want to live a more fulfilling life than they do now, and are trying to figure out what to do in the next chapter of their life, that lights them up and makes them feel alive.
Hi, I’m Angela, elite sport dog handler, international life, leadership, & coaches coach & coach trainer. This may be a weird way to introduce myself, but…
I’m a dog sport junky. And if you’re one too, (and even if you’re not)you’ll know it’s so much more than just a simple sport. It’s a way of life. A way of expressing myself. Where I feel most alive. Where I thrive. I can’t not do it. It’s about seeing the world through a dog’s eyes, and experiencing all that nature has to offer, whilst competing to win. I love it.
As I look back on my life so far, I can identify 5 Big Realisations which I’ve experienced as a result of doing what I do with dogs, which have changed my perspective on life and how I see the world. I’ve been sharing The Big 5 with my clients for the past decade, to help them cultivate life and work that allows them to thrive on the inside and flourish on the outside.
Here they are:
My Big 5
- A Light Touch (When you approach things too seriously, life seems way harder and goes way worse. A light touch is way more fun and way more effective.)
- Love Life (do what makes you feel alive).
- Declutter your mind. (Transform overwhelm into productivity and action).
- Outdoors (Being outdoors is therapeutic and healing).
- Commit (to a clear and passionate intention and bring your dreams to life).

Whilst I was lost in the wilderness trying to figure out what the f**k I was going to do next, I was compelled to create T-shirts with a message of love for the world. This is the result. Now you can join hundreds of people who are spreading the word on their chests and sharing their own great message with the world.
Book a 1on1 session with Angela at The Paddock (online).
If you get a new career or business idea every week that fizzles out within seconds, but you’re inspired to do something creative that’s close to your soul, if you could only figure out what the f**k that is…reach out. Maybe I can help.
To get an idea about whether my work might be a good fit for you read Sarah’s Case Study below, and more below.
Sarah’s Case Study
12 Week 1on1 Coaching Programme
Within 3 months Sarah went from being a struggling, overwhelmed, wife, mother, dog lover, to increasing her confidence, took charge of her finances, took care of her health, has become happy and strong, and now has a life with her dogs and her family that she loves. Sarah’s been there and got the T-shirt 🙂 and her motto is ‘Love The Life You Live’.
Before: Sarah was struggling, overwhelmed, and exhausted after two difficult years. As a wife, mother, and dog mum to 3 lively collies, she had to constantly handle demands from her family, was always putting other people (and the dogs) before herself, and didn’t have time to take care of her own needs, so she felt tired, resentful, neglected, and her relationships were suffering.
Also, if she had a problem she wouldn’t ask for help. She would just work harder at trying to solve it, and she had very little energy.
After: Sarah now has lots more energy to live and train her dogs with freedom and peace of mind. With more energy she is enjoying life, and has more free time to take care of her health, is more confident in her relationships, and has a lifestyle she loves as it keeps her fit, healthy and feeling joyful.
Timeframe: 3 months
Quote from Sarah: “Angela’s coaching programme came at exactly the right time for me. I had had a difficult 2 years with concerns about the pandemic, together with bereavement, relationship problems, and illnesses. I was sad and felt as if I had lost my anchor.
Having completed coaching with Angela it has been very successful. Each session was enjoyable, useful, but oddly, not hard work.
It’s changed how I view problems, guided me to be aware of my thoughts, and to look after myself. In the past I had just been busy and only thought of others. It was so helpful to learn to check in on myself too.
So without much effort, I feel happier, stronger, and more confident. I also now have lots more energy and things are just seeming to fall into place. I can now look forward to my new doggy adventures with excitement.”

“Hello wonderful Angela! It’s taken me three days to get off the sea bed – thus my delay in getting in touch to thank you for a truly lovely and inspirational session on Friday!! I LOVED it. Super to meet with lovely people and so refreshing to re-visit the whole subject of being grounded in our true selves. You were made to do this work, you really were. it’s so intangible that it’s hard to put my finger on it, but I think it’s that you make me feel at peace (which if you remember is a pretty rare commodity in my crazy, noisy, head). So in short, thank you :-)”
“Angela has the powerful and rare talent of humour. Her ability to move from serious, profound insight to a place of lightness and fun to really land a message is quite brilliant. Angela brings an energy that truly engages everyone. An immensely impactful coach and coach trainer.”
Angela, you are a model of excellence for commitment and learning.

“Angela is one of the most talented trainers I’ve ever worked alongside. She has an instinct for what is needed and will use a stunning imagination & well-honed knowledge to create the opportunity for it. Intuitive, caring, considerate, flexible & fun. In her work & in her life she dreams, envisions & then makes it happen.”
FOUNDER, ENIGMA COACHING
“I came to Angela post Covid wondering which direction to take my business and questioning my own ability due to imposter syndrome. Through our sessions she helped the real me re-surface and my confidence grow. We also laughed a lot. She was the perfect thinking partner, and I am now happy with the direction I want to take my business and with who I am.
BUSINESS OWNER, UK
“I started my coaching programme with Angela about a year back. I was cautious of the challenges ahead of me as a young professional in a leadership position, needed guidance on how to approach things and how to achieve satisfaction and peace with all the changes I was going through. Angela’s coaching helped me to value my capabilities even more, reduce mental and emotional attachment to situations, and to be more decisive. Now I no longer fear the challenges ahead. I just deal with them as they come, and I’m capable of making decisions, that are well thought through, in a timely manner.”

Hi, I’m Angela. Thank you for dropping by The Paddock.
Thank you for being here. For being open to seeing the world through not-so-serious eyes and going outdoors to experience connection with yourself, with your fellow humans, non-humans, and the rest of nature. I’m looking forward to chatting with you!
