Soul's Compass (Wellbeing Showcase)

Tea-lover and chocolate fanatic, Cheryl-lya Broadfoot has been running Soul’s Compass Coaching and Consulting (working with charities and start-ups) for nine years and her second business Wellbeing Showcase for five years.


With an MA (Personnel & Development), BA (Industrial Psychology) and HND Human Resources Management (among other qualifications) Cheryl-lya worked for 17 years in the field of Human Resources as an Employee Relations Specialist. She then moved into Volunteer Management and trained in a few modalities of Complementary Therapies.

She is also a CMP Certified Copywriter and Social Media Strategist, Royal Society of Public Health trained and an NLP Practitioner.


Previous successes have included getting the volunteer arm of a national pilot across Hospice care to number one in the UK, providing people solutions saving contracts around £400k. As a coach and mentor she has supported over 250 micro-businesses on a one-to-one basis, supports Women in Enterprise Networking events and is a volunteer herself.


“Starting out in HR, I later decided to break the rules and follow a career supporting causes closer to my heart. I have worked across several sectors including Business Start-ups, Employability, Social Care, Higher Education and currently Heritage. Also consulting on Volunteering Services for 10 years.  I now support only the best Businesses (like yours!).

Post-COVID I am helping small business owners get noticed through business planning and accountability strategies while reviving my own wellbeing events business… Chocolates in the post please!”
