Hi, I’m Eva a Registered Nurse and a Professional Certified Coach.

I work with Nurses and Midwives to achieve a positive work-life balance

Discover your work-life balance score with my 5-minute quiz


Eva Storey - Resilience Coach

Are there times when you feel unsupported at work?

Are you struggling to find peer support from someone who has experience as a nurse and understands your situation?

Do you find yourself leaving work late and checking emails when you get home?

Do you constantly feel that you are always behind and chasing your tail?

Is your home life and self -care suffering?

I Can Help You Through 1-on-1 Coaching

I am trained as a coach to ask powerful questions, listen deeply and then provide a safe space for you to think through your answers. A good coach doesn’t tell you what to do but supports you to find your own answers and develop a plan to help you meet your goals.

Individual six week coaching package

This is all about you and only you. When was the last time that you gave yourself the gift of time?

Coaching is for you if you are feeling overwhelmed at work, or that you are spreading yourself too thin, that there is never enough time and that work follows you home.

Do you struggle to say no and feel that sometimes you are not experienced enough, second-guessing your decision?

Working at home is an everyday occurrence, not an exception. 

I am a nurse and a coach and have walked a mile or two in your shoes and truly know how it is in a way that only a nurse can

Working with me will give you personal development that is meaningful, individualised, confidential, authentic, non-judgemental and much more than a tick box. Importantly it will help you to set goals around getting the balance back in your life.

This master class will give you great insights into your personal resilience strengths and identify areas where coaching can help you to take action and achieve a better work-life balance.

The class is limited to keep the group small enough to enable all participants to share their stories and learn from each other. The group will act as an informal support group.

Who is the master class for?

For any registered or enrolled nurse or midwife who wants to learn more about their individual strengths around resilience and learn strategies to manage their work life balance

Put me on the waiting list here!

How will this master class help me?

You will learn how to build your personal work resilience through understanding your personal strengths based score in seven areas; energy, self-care, adaptability, purpose, networks, authenticity and support.

The more resources that you have the better equipped you will be to manage both adverse situations and everyday demands. The idea is that we invest in as many of these seven areas as we can.

Feedback from my clients

About me

I am passionate about providing support for senior nurses. I know from first-hand experience that it is difficult to find support from someone who understands the pressure nurses are under today. I truly know that as a Nurse you are very busy and there is never enough time for your own self-care, and even if there was you are too exhausted to do anything. I know this because I have worked as a nurse for 38 years. Click here to listen to my resilience story Podcast with Bryn from WAREAL

Frequently Asked Questions

Coaching works in partnership with you and helps you to achieve your personal best and produce the results that you want in your personal and professional life, health and relationships.

The intention of coaching is to help you achieve your goals and help support you in becoming the best that you can be, your fabulous self!

Coaching will help you to identify actions that you can take to achieve your goals. My role as your coach is to provide you with a safe, confidential, non-judgemental space to help you work through and achieve your goals.

Coaching focuses on the here and now, exploring what is happening in the present, helping you to design your future by working in partnership with you and supporting you every step of the way. In the sessions, I will ask you questions to understand your situation rather than give you answers or advice.

It is important to note that coaching is not therapy, for example, counselling or mentoring.

Resilience is defined by Kathryn MCEwen as “an individual’s capacity to manage the everyday stress of work and remain healthy, rebound and learn from unexpected setbacks and prepare for future challenges proactively”. There are four domains of resilience: Physical health, Self-Management, Adaptability and Proactivity.

As a resilience coach I use the R@W individual tool which is a scientifically researched measure of personal workplace resilience measuring 7 components that interrelate and contribute to overall resilience. The individual report that you will receive will provide you with comprehensive feedback that is easily translated into actions through coaching.

Coaching takes place in your own home via Zoom or FaceTime using a computer or a mobile device. All you need is a quiet space free from interruptions and earphones/headset.

Typically a session will run for 1 hour, you can choose to have a 2 hour session if you prefer. For example, instead of 6 one hour sessions, you could have 3 x 2 hour sessions.

When you have decided that you are ready to be coached, I will send you a welcome pack which you will need to read through, complete the ‘about me’ form and return the signed coaching agreement. In the first session, we will work through the ‘about me’ form and then work on identifying a specific goal.

Payment plans are available on request. 1:1 coaching sessions require the first session to be paid before the coaching commences and then fortnightly by direct debit for the remainder of the weeks.
