My Experience and Qualifications

Lydia 3
Lydia Burke

I am an accredited Life Coach. I have had a long and varied career as a Primary Care Nurse Practitioner in the NHS, Counsellor, Higher Education Lecturer, Animal Behaviourist and owner and manager of Friendly Creatures animal behaviour company.

I now work as a life coach because I am passionate about sharing the successful tools that I learned on my journey with others who are struggling. In the past I faced situations where I felt stuck and life coaching helped me to identify what was important to me and gave me concrete strategies to go forward with. Life coaching helped me make the best choices and attain fulfillment and purpose. So now I am able to successfully blend my nursing, counselling and managerial skills alongside my understanding of the therapeutic role of animals and outdoor life to providing life coaching to others.

My formal qualifications: RGN/RMN, Bsc Health Studies, MSc Advanced Nurse Practitioner, PGCE Higher Education, Professional Life Coach and Guide.

I also have passed Equine Therapy theoretical component of The Horse Course* and am a full member of the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers*.
