Cressy Landless

Feeling isolated and alone?

I am a life coach and I deal with relationship crises.  Many people are now shut in their homes with each other and the challenges of relationships are varied, poignant and hard to avoid. 

 Firstly, there can be huge loneliness when you are with someone you would rather not be with and there is no escape.   I will give you the tools and strategies you need to survive now and thrive later.

Secondly, being alone and unable to see and be with the one you love is also very challenging.  Keeping your relationship alive in isolation from your loved one is important.  I can help you to overcome your worries and keep your relationship alive.

Finally, you may also be facing separation from your children or grandchildren. The sadness and loneliness of this loss of contact is damaging.  It may seem that there is nothing you can do, but sometimes a different perspective can help you improve the most futile of situations. I can help.

I offer affordable and easily achievable packages tailored to individual needs. | 07747 623338 | view our website

Hello! My name is Jason and I run a professional photography studio offering portraiture, event, festival and commercial work.  With a background in the performing arts I also specialise in working with musicians, bands and artists.

Needless to say that as Covid spread and we got locked down I lost all of my bookings for spring and summer 2020.  I opened my studio in June 2019, a dream come true, and was really pleased with how my business was growing....and then along came The Virus.

As the situation eases I'll be back up and running so if you are a family looking for a new set of portraits, an artist after some promotional photos, a businesses putting together a fresh website or a restaurant with a brand new menu, get in touch with me! | 07775 707285| Visit our website

Helo Video

Specialising in helping entrepreneurs, experts and introverts get started and get comfortable and effective with making video.

VIDEO is something all businesses should be using already but it’s become even more crucial right now.  93% of internet users watch video, 85% spend more time on a website with video, and social media posts with video attract three times more engagement and website conversion rates increase from 2.9% to 4.8% - and that was before lockdown. So many entrepreneurs are now using video - are you? Now is the perfect time to skill up -

Forbes - if your small business isn't using video marketing, you're missing a massive opportunity.  People are not looking for high production value - content is king

People buy from people, and people want authentic, natural content. There's a big difference between online noise and effective video that sells, your products, services, ideas - you.
