Problem-solving solutions and strategies for you!

renata-taylor-byrne-lifestyle-coachWhen it comes to problem-solving, two heads are better than one!

And one of those heads needs to belong to someone who understands how to pull complex problems apart; to lay out the component parts; and to suggest possible solutions.

I have studied coaching, counselling and personal development strategies for problem-solving for more than forty years. And I’ve coached lots of individuals through the process of solving their most pressing problems.

I can help you to make sense of your current problems, and to produce an action plan to move you forward into a better place!

Coaching is like counselling, except that it tries to avoid going too deeply into the client’s emotions. And the way I approach my coaching work is supported by my background training in counselling, coaching, and therapy; plus teaching and mentoring. Plus stress management. And lifestyle links to physical and mental health.

renata-taylor-byrne-lifestyle-coachMy name is Renata Taylor-Byrne, and I’m a Lifestyle Coach.

Welcome to my website, about my coaching services in Hebden Bridge, and all over the world via the telephone system and via email exchanges.

I can help you if you are struggling with any aspect of your life (listed in the next section), at home or in work situations.


The content of my coaching services

In my work with clients, I mainly tend to focus upon the following subjects:

– Sleep science and sleep coaching (including insomnia relief);

– Stress management;

– Diet, exercise, sleep and relaxation approaches to managing anger, anxiety and depression;

– Progressive muscle relaxation, which is great for resolving problems of anxiety, tension, sleep problems, and much more.

– Building self-confidence, including the strategies for public performance work

– Learning to communicate more assertively

– How to change difficult habits

– And more general problems of daily living.

I only work with adults, preferably over the age of 21 years; and I do not see clients who have been “sent”. You must be a self-motivated seeker after a solution to a problem that you have identified!

How I work with you to achieve valued changes in your life

I use a lifestyle questionnaire to find out how your lifestyle practices (like diet, exercise, sleep, relaxation, etc.) are impacting your life; plus your current stresses and pressures.

I also use a number of different problem-solving models to show you a way forward to achieve your goals, or any changes you want to make in your life.

Here’s one example: the Egan Model

– 1. Where are you up to in your life?

– 2. Where are you trying to get to?

– 3. How can we, together, get you to where you want to be? What strategies can we create for you to experiment with?

You and I work together to help you get your valued changes in your life.

(This approach is also called the Skilled Helper model, and it’s a very good way to help you realise both your their assets and skills, and your ‘blind spots’ regarding your current problem(s); and it a powerful way to bring valued changes into your life lives.)


renata-coach-counsellor-june-2021Here is another example – the WDEP model:

– 1. What do you want (from your life; or instead of what you’ve got!)?

– 2. What are you actively doing to get (1) above?

– 3. How is that working for you? Let’s evaluate it.

– 4. Plan: Let’s work together to put together a plan to move you towards item (1) – What you want!


Lifestyle Factors priorities

Alternatively, I might suggest that we structure our meeting on the basis of the top priorities that need to be addressed from your Lifestyle Factors questionnaire answers – (concerning diet, exercise, sleep, relaxation, career, habits, etc.)


Or: Your three-part agenda

Or I might suggest we structure our meeting on the basis of the three questions at the end of my Lifestyle Factors questionnaire; which are:

  1. – Your main reason for consulting me is:
  2. – Your main goal for our work together is:


  1. Relevant personal history – either or both from your childhood or later periods of your life; or from your personal or professional experiences.

About me – Renata Taylor-Byrne

I am a registered and accredited Coach, who also uses counselling skills in support of my work with you.

I’ve also written and co-authored books in which I’ve researched the latest valuable findings in the areas of nutrition, sleep, relaxation and stress management in order to make my work with you as relevant, up to date and helpful as possible. (See ABC Bookstore book lists).
