Dr Marie Stopforth CPsychol.

My name is Marie, and I'm a chartered psychologist specialising in coaching. I'm passionate about helping people to fulfil their potential and to be happier and more satisfied in their life, work or relationships. I often work with people who are just a bit 'stuck'. It might be that they want to change career, need a better work/life balance, have a difficult decision to make, or just want to feel more fulfilled or make their dreams become a reality!

I've worked for many years as a sport psychologist, and so have lots of knowledge and experience of improving performance and helping people to be more effective in what they choose to do. I can help with confidence, time/self management, procrastination, dealing with stress/anxiety, identifying and achieving goals, recognising and overcoming barriers, identifying and maximising your strengths and unlocking your potential. I am qualified to carry out psychometric testing (personality) which can provide you with a personal insight in to what makes you tick, and therefore help you to understand and manage behaviour, relationships and emotional reactions.

I am also a qualified exercise instructor (mainly Pilates these days!), and I have worked in the health and fitness industry for around 17 years. Health coaching can help you to achieve sustainable behaviour change by increasing self-awareness and motivation, and providing tools to initiate and maintain a healthy lifestyle. 

I'm  coach educator and work part time as a University lecturer in London teaching on a Masters degree in coaching psychology and career coaching. This helps me to keep up to date with developments and research in coaching.

I look forward to working with you!

I approached Marie, because I wanted to change my career direction and was given the opportunity to see a Life Coach within my organisation. Marie really helped me to structure and break-down my overall goal into smaller targets. The result was that I managed to achieve my goal within 12 months and move into a position within my chosen sector. Marie was very personable and knowledgeable and I found the experience extremely enjoyable and productive. I would recommend Marie to anyone who is thinking about a career change and requires the advice and direction to achieve this.



Marie has helped me focus on the priorities in my life and gain perspective. She has helped me find the skills within myself to deal successfully with problems and anxiety as they arise. I am now more aware of 'enjoying the moment' and worry less about things that are unimportant to me.

Having coaching was one of the most rewarding things I have done and I would highly recommend Marie to anyone who would like to get more out of their life personally and professionally.



Having had my  coaching sessions with Marie, I have a much clearer focus on where i want to go. Her affable relaxed approach helped me to open up and feel comfortable discussing my plans (and oftentimes neurosis). Loved that I was able to access the mind of a qualified psychologist. Thanks to our sessions I feel more in control, decisive and am actually able to visualise my 5 year plan and take the steps forward



I enrolled in coaching with Marie when I entered a time of uncertainty and instability in my career. In our time together, Marie helped me to find clarity, direction and enthusiasm. During our regular meetings, Marie focused the conversation to establish the root issues and then guided me to finding my own resolutions. Her friendly and positive attitude, her sound advice and her extensive knowledge meant that each session was valuable, educational and empowering. I truly appreciate Marie’s work with me and I would heartily recommend her to anyone in need of motivation and support.
