Hello! I’m Rachael

I care about people living and working in a fulfilling, happy and relaxed way

It’s about experiencing high levels of wellness and shining with your authentic qualities. This benefits the individual, the business, and sends positive ripples out into the world.

I help people in business to flourish via coaching and training. I have been running Tall Spaghetti since 2005.

My speciality areas are mindfulness, confidence, well-being, processing emotions, and personal development. I create a safe space for meaningful exploration and positive shift. Content is pragmatic and powerful. I guide you in interactive exercises, conversations and reflections. It’s an enjoyable, and highly valuable process.

I remind people to take care of themselves and to recognise that self-care is the enabler for effectiveness. I help you to feel less stress and more ease; to experience excellent mental and emotional health; to be more self-aware; to feel really comfortable in your own skin; to work in effortless and impactful ways; to be empowered; and to make the best use of your unique strengths.

I work with companies of all sizes. Clients have included Rolls-Royce, Virgin Media, and Health Education England. Get in touch to find out how I can support your business.

My own journey of personal growth

I am fascinated by what supports me in living whole-heartedly, with ease, aliveness, and authenticity. I am proactively engaged in my own ongoing personal journey of discovery and evolution.

Here is a flavour of some experiences and aspects of my life that have played a part in my own journey of inner growth and exploration…

Periods living abroad, independent travel and adventure have catalysed personal flourishing, and helped me tap into my strength and resourcefulness. Diversity of experience opens up my mind and shifts my perspectives. I find it fascinating to see what makes people tick and contributes to happiness, as I encounter people from varied walks of life and cultures.

Personal challenge has been another catalyst for my own growth. It has provided invaluable insights; helped me develop tools for navigating difficulty; and it has enhanced my compassion and empathy.

Mindfulness and meditation play a really enriching part in my life. Through this practice, I have connected more deeply to myself, my experiences, my environment, and to others. I have been able to see my own patterns and habits more clearly, and with compassion. Meeting all flavours of life with presence has been transformative.

In addition to my direct experiences and personal inquiry, I have been an avid learner in the fields of awareness and personal development, drawing on many sources. I have also undertaken formal training as an NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) Master Practitioner, a Coach, and a Mindfulness Teacher.

Some things I love

As well as my passion for well-being, presence, and personal development, my main love is nature. It is magic. It brings me much peace and rejuvenation. I am dedicated to going for a long walk in the countryside most weeks. Sometimes, I undertake more adventurous, longer-distance hikes in UK and abroad – recently this has included Wainwright’s Coast to Coast (200 miles) and the West Highland Way (100 miles). I also love reading novels, dancing, yoga, true connection with people, friendship, fun, laughter, and spacious rest time to flow with the moment. This all lights me up, relaxes me and helps me to bring the ‘best me’ to my work with clients. I believe that rest, leisure, balance and fun are foundational to living and working well.

Working with me

My life experience feeds into my work, as does the experience I have gained from 19 years of working with clients and helping them to flourish. My style is relaxed, organic, real, and pragmatic. I facilitate positive change and transformation. It is such a pleasure to serve in this way and to support your well-being, vitality, and personal growth.

My larger motivation

I am delighted that in my work, I get to help people to feel relaxed, grounded, vibrant and empowered. It not only helps the individual and the work they do, but it also positively impacts their working relationships, their personal relationships, and their influence on the ethics of their business. The world needs us at our best, setting off positive ripples.
