    More about Sarah WoodwardSarah Woodward is an award-winning divorce coach for women, helping them to get unstuck, let go of destructive thoughts and to rediscover who they are so that they can feel happier and stronger than ever before. It is her mission to empower women to believe that even though their future may be different, it can still be amazing. She helps her clients move on with their lives, let go of the past, and find the happiness again that they deserve, because she was that person broken by divorce, wasting years devastated, in therapy, with chronic depression, grieving and truly lost.
    Having found a passion that really helped her find herself again she beat chronic depression and fell in love with life again and using her corporate skills from senior roles in global brands such as Sony, she tapped into her change management and relationship management skills, to help her learn to embrace the change in her life, and to start to build new relationships.
    When a friend divorced several years ago, Sarah realised that there was still very little support for women going through this traumatic life changing event, and that she could use her training and experience to help them move on with their lives and leave behind the heartbreak to find happiness again.
    One of the first Accredited Breakup and Divorce Coach Practitioners in the UK and having been awarded the Most Influential Woman in divorce coaching by the Influential Businesswomen Awards in 2020, Sarah is a well-respected expert in her industry.

    More about SueAlthough now a coach, trainer and therapist, Sue's main work used to be in the serious-sounding field of “corporate communications” and she's been using NLP to support communication and behaviour change since 1997. In 2011 Sue became a Laughter Yoga Leader, then a Laughter Facilitator, and finally a Laughter Yoga teacher – which means she teaches others to be Laughter Yoga Leaders. Now she aim's to inject a few Laughter Yoga principles into all her work – because the health benefits are incredible and the perspective change that laughter gives can be deeply transformative.
    Sue likes to stress that Laughter Yoga isn’t about humour, "it’s just laughter because it’s very good for us", she explains. Last week someone asked Sue, “Can you teach me Laughter Yoga if I’m not very flexible?”. “Yes," Sue replied, "Laughter Yoga doesn’t need flexibility”. "Oh good," they said, "I can’t make Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays".
    You can find Sue's website at https://www.suehaswell.co.uk (suehaswell.co.uk) and at http://www.creativelaughter.co.uk/ (creativelaughter.co.uk) (which she set up back in 2012 to offer group coaching and training, and one-to-one work).

Throughout Covid she's been working online with a number of blue-light organisations, including the police and NHS to support stress management and team building through laughter and mindfulness.

    More about EmmaEmma had a secret yearning to work with dogs for many years and had helped lots of friends with their dogs but it took getting her own puppy six years ago to push her into it.
    After years of training other people to do the things, Emma decided to do some training herself and has spent the last 4 years getting herself a brand new shiny qualification in Dog Behaviour with the highly respected COAPE International. Turns out, she is still training people to do the things, it’s just the things are furry with four legs and, generally, really quite cute.
    Emma is happy to work with any owner of any dog, of any age and background.
