Emma pictureHello and thank you for looking me up! My name is Emma Arblaster. I’m a professional, accredited Life Coach and Energist, NLP Practitioner, EFT Master Practitioner and MODERN Stress Management Facilitator.  I launched Zest4Life Coaching in March 2010, offering 1 to 1 Personal Life Coaching, specialising in Health and Wellbeing. I work either face to face, from the natural clinic in Crieff or by phone or via Skype. I have a Diploma in Personal Performance Coaching (Distinction) from The Coaching Academy, Europe’s market leader in coach training and gained my NLP Practitioner qualification from the same establishment.  In June 2013 I added Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT – “tapping”) to the range of skills and services I offer my clients and in September 2015 became a MODERN Stress Management facilitator which I am excitedly taking forward in 2016, working with personal and corporate clients and running workshops.  I’m delighted that in May 2016 I had the opportunity to study EMO – Energy In Motion.   Energy work is the best!   I am undertaking continual professional development  to ensure I offer my clients the highest quality coaching and Energist services.

My professional background is within healthcare. I have over 12 years experience working as a State Registered Occupational Therapist within the NHS, covering both physical and mental health, inpatient and community. In addition to my clinical and managerial roles, I was closely involved in the training and supervision of students and staff, in which I was already using coaching skills although I was unaware of it at the time!  Additionally, I have an Honours Degree in Psychology.

Reading the above,  I think you’ll understand that I see myself as a “people person” and the links between Life Coaching and Occupational Therapy are, I believe, remarkable. Both professions work holistically with a client, assessing where they “are at” and where they want “to be”. Both use goal setting skills, facilitating learning and the coach or OT provides their client with support, motivation, encouragement and feedback. For both professions, a genuine love of people, ability to build great rapport and a wish to help a client fulfil their chosen goals is essential. I can never tire of working directly with people and have professionally worked with such a wonderfully diverse range of clients, ageing from 18 to 100 years! What a privilege!

My background, interests and passion in working with others to enable them to understand, appreciate and maximise their physical, mental, functional and spiritual wellbeing has led me to specialise in Health and Wellbeing Coaching.

On a personal note, I am married with 2 daughters who spur me onwards and upwards. They are my crusaders, pointing out wherever we go anything turquoise – my trademark colour!
