Hello!  I am Louise and welcome to Barefoot Trainers.  I set up this business in 2015 having worked for a training provider and deciding to do it for myself!  I have over 25 years’ experience working in the training arena and I now balance my time equally between working with groups and coaching individuals.  My background is in the hotel industry, where I was part of the management team in two well known London hotels.  After living in California for several years I returned to England and set up my own childcare business which I successfully ran for nine years.  I have been a part of many successful initiatives and have much experience working in the voluntary sector.

With my background in training I decided to enhance my skills and qualified in  ‘Personal Performance Coaching’  and also ‘Corporate and Executive Coaching’ with the Coaching Academy.  With a zest for learning I obtained  Level 7 award for ‘Strategic Leadership’ from ILM. On this continuous growth and development I become an accredited trainer for the DISC personality profiles.  I love to keep up with my professional practice and attend many CPD sessions.

I have a passion for supporting people to achieve their ambitions and with the combination of a friendly, professional approach and with much life experience, I know  clients feel comfortable and safe with me.   As a result, they are well placed to gain maximum value from their sessions and explore challenging issues in a non threatening, relaxed, and often fun, learning environment.

Having a collaborative network with a highly engaged and qualified team enables us at Barefoot Trainers to deliver an individual service for each client.
