Mind-Design coaches women and children (aged 7-11) to navigate major life changes.

Mind-Design is founded and headed by Life Coach, Social Worker and NLP Practitioner Fiona Stubbings.

We offer one-to-one coaching, small group coaching, workshops and executive packages. We specialise in working with women and the unique life transitions they encounter, and empowering children to build resilience and constructively manage the ups and downs of growing up.

Fiona Stubbings is a certified Professional Life Coach, NLP Practitioner and children’s Adventures in WisdomTM  coach. She holds degrees in Psychology and Social Work, and has over 20 years’ experience working with children, families and communities to improve their lives.

“My passion is in empowering women and children to navigate major life challenges, so their outcomes are positive, future-focussed and strengths-based.

“I wrote #WarriorWomen for women across the world to see life transition as an opportunity to make a positive change to their lives.

“I’ve experienced many of the life transitions I coach other women through. This includes moving and working overseas, marriage, motherhood, changing careers and starting several businesses. And my personal transitions continue!

“My life goal involves taking life to the next level for myself, my clients and young children!”

Fiona’s experiences with major life change – becoming a mum, experiencing ante-natal and post-natal depression, critical career change and driving for workplace equality and flexibility – have given her the skills and experience needed to help women change their own lives.

Fiona is an advocate for women on all of life’s stages and a champion for changing the status quo. She is a thought leader on how women can support each other, who you need in your tribe to live your best life and the ‘Mumma Mental Load’.


Fiona has qualifications in psychology, social work and life coaching.

Fiona has worked with women and children for almost 20 years.

Working with kids

“I have two young children of my own, and I understand the need to help children develop a positive mindset, build resilience to manage fears, changes and the ups and downs of growing up, so they don’t have to try and reset their brains to learn new mindset pathways in adulthood.

“I love the F Douglass quote: It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken [adults].

“I’m passionate about raising happy kids with mindsets that can only lead to a positive future.”

Author and #WarriorWoman

Fiona is author of #WarriorWomen – Find Your Tribe and Live your Best Life, a book about some of the major transitions in the lives of women. The book contains self-coaching tools and strategies, and encourages women to support each other as part of their own tribes, across every aspect of their lives.

“I focus on life transition coaching so that we women don’t muddle through life changes aimlessly with little support, direction or focus. So we live lives focused on being the best versions of ourselves and designing our best lives possible.

“It’s all about increasing our levels of personal fulfilment and happiness in life!”

Advocate for women

“Women are the only ones who can truly understand each other and, therefore, the best supporters and advocates for each other.

“Society has made us compete for too long – it’s time for women to unite and become the force that nature intended.

“Putting ourselves first should not be seen as a luxury but a necessity!

“As women we often put ourselves and our own needs on the back burner, prioritising our loved ones over our own self-care. I want to help women to live their best lives while also being a mum, professional, carer, partner, sister and friend.

“Together, let’s identify and nurture our authentic selves so we can show up in the world as the best possible version of ourselves and know that we’re meeting our own needs as well as those of our families and friends.
