Awaken Coaching Ltd
Beverley Jones

07502 375714


Throughout 2009/2010 Beverley travelled on a journey thorough depression and anxiety which ultimately led to a decision to train as a life coach in order to inspire and help others move their lives forward in a positive way. Awaken life coaching was founded in 2010 and is an innovative company that wants to help you live your life to its full potential. While Beverley has a diploma in life coaching, she states she is not a ‘Text Book’ coach, as this combined with a wealth of life experience and covering roles in the majority of departments in the business field enables her to support clients whether it be as a life coach, business coach or an employment consultant.

Beverley has trained with Sue Stone – author of ‘Love Life, Live Life’ (who played the role of Secret Millionaire in the recent Channel 4 Series) and is an accredited coach with the Sue Stone Federation.

Beverley coaches on a 1-1 or group basis, plus through workshops and seminars. Beverley also undertakes Speaker Slots where through inspirational and motivational talks she will enable people to understand how Positive Thinking and Visualisation would enable them to see how they can live the life they desire.      ‘Lighting your journey ahead’

Purple Shoots Business Lending (“Purple Shoots”) is a not-for-profit microfinance organisation, set up to tackle unemployment and economic problems in the areas where it operates.

Our goal is to improve the situation of people on a lasting basis, and to give opportunity and dignity to those unable to find work. This will help the poorest communities, encouraging independence and small business.  Purple Shoots will offer small loans at fair rates to those who are unable to obtain a little support from elsewhere. We will help develop their business ideas and their business skills, to help set up and grow their own small businesses.

We realise that small businesses are very important to communities in Wales. Purple Shoots will try to help in 3 ways:

  • By helping people we will build confidence in people who want to start their own business.
  • By lending just enough to get going we will also be helping the community they are from.
  • By giving advice and mentoring in the early days we will help make those small businesses successful and last longer.

Purple Shoots will try to:

  • Create small groups of potential new business owners (called Self-reliant groups), encouraging them to develop a business idea and helping them put their plan together, before offering a start up loan. This is a key part of our business which will reach out to those struggling with unemployment and lack of opportunities.
  • Offer straight forward small business loans to people starting out or already running a small business.
  • Help the new business owner understand what is needed to get going properly so that a steady income for the business develops and the business lasts.

As a charity, all our profits  will be used for further lending and to help the aims of the company. Income will come from charging interest at a reasonable rate.

For free daily hints and tips on health and wellbeing like my Facebook page

Over the past 25 years I have benefited greatly from many different complementary therapies for a range of conditions including stress and back / neck problems which has fuelled my passion for holistic healthcare. I decided to turn my passion into a new career returned to study for a Chiropractic degree at McTimoney College of Chiropractic. As a qualified and registered Chiropractor I can bring the wider benefits of these therapies to others.

Prior to becoming a chiropractor I previously worked in a range of roles ranging from recruitment, logistics and IT, often in very stressful and competitive environments.

I personally prefer light gentle approaches to chiropractic treatments and have trained in a variety of techniques which deliver effective treatment plans with a gentle touch. I am trained in the following techniques, McTimoney, Network Spinal Analysis, Biogeometric Integration, Epley Manover (for those suffering from BPP vertigo)

I currently work at the Complementary Health Centre in Abergavenny (Monk Street), my home clinic in Cwmbran and Canton McTimoney Clinic in Canton, Cardiff.
