Lyn Paxman


Coach, facilitator, trainer


I have a vision of a world where people say:

“I’ve created a wonderful life and I feel I have the resources I need to continue to thrive, not strive.”


“I work for an organisation and I love it! I feel as though I bring the best of me every day and it’s really appreciated. The people are great – sometimes we challenge each other, but we have loads of trust, so we’re honest, whilst appreciating we’re all different. I’m really clear on what’s expected of me – it does change at times, because, well … things change, but we work through it together.”


My favourite thing about living in Somerset is that I am never far from the sea.  The best thing about that is eating fish and chips on the beach!

My Approach

To thrive, we need to evolve. Learn from our mistakes and build upon our strengths.

In this world of ‘do, do, do’ we rarely create the space and conditions to non-judgmentally review and reflect. This is what develops our self-awareness, enabling us to develop and grow.

I help to create that space and provide a process to guide individuals and teams from review, to identifying what to let go of and move on from, to creating a clear and compelling vision for the future.

I work with people who understand – we’re in this together, working  alongside you (metaphorically), to get to know you, your team and your organisation so I can get underneath what the real development need is and make positive change happen together.

My coaching sessions and workshops are experiential and varied – we move and map things out, we use indoor and outdoor space, we listen, we talk, we reflect. Using variety and ‘whole brain’ experiences means that learning sticks. I incorporate real life scenarios & issues where possible – providing participants the opportunity to solve and implement immediately.


About Me

CIPD qualified, an NLP practitioner & having over 20 years of experience as a coach and facilitator I have supported various individuals and organisations.

(See my Linked-in profile for who I’ve worked with

I’ve also set up my own highly successful team within a multi-million pound corporate, so I understand the challenges of developing yourself & working with others.

I believe in ‘giving back’ and continuously broadening my experience and have held a couple of non-exec board positions, previously as Chair for Fordhall Community Land Initiative and currently as a board member with Wessex Resolutions,  I am also a volunteer Enterprise Adviser – helping schools and employers to create opportunities for young people.

I work nationally and live in Somerset, so I’m passionate about recognising the South West as an attractive option for developing businesses.
