Hi all,

I’m Tina McDonald, I work with professional people who are seeking a greater work / life balance, helping people who want to progress further, grow their business, get back to work or manage their career without sacrificing their personal or family life.

As a Chronic pain suffer I am confident in supporting people with pain conditions to learn to live with their condition not against it and find a balance that works for them.

After being a  manager since 2002 and coaching people since 2003, using my coaching tools, challenges and events to keep you on track, the guidance from me plus the hard work from you, means you will reach your goals.
