About me

Wendy Jennings’s book “From Cancer to Coddiwomple” is the story of living through her parents’ devastating illnesses and how she re-built her life, piece by piece, after losing them both, within weeks of each other.

Wendy knew exactly where she was going, why she was going and what she wanted to achieve, as she embarked on the trip of a lifetime, to Bali and Australia.

Little did she know that these two inspiring and beautiful places, would lead her to a totally different ‘destination’ – writing a book…this book! “From Cancer to Coddiwomple” is the perfect read for anyone who has ever lost a loved one.

Wendy’s book will support St Barnabas House hospice in Sussex, which looked after her family during the dark months and raise awareness of the often-missed signs and symptoms of Ovarian Cancer.

Life Coaching
– helping you to reveal your stepping stones to Happiness.

Life Coach

I never dreamed just how much of a positive impact publishing my book “From Cancer To Coddiwomple” in 2019 would have on me.

The inspiration behind the book has always been to inspire others to enjoy Life After Loss but I never expected it to take me on another coddiwomple as a Life Coach!

Life Coaching is a holistic way of enabling you to move from “thinking about” doing something to “enabling” you to do it. I can help you remove those stumbling blocks that are keeping you stuck.

I received Life Coaching myself following the deaths of my parents in 2012 when I was looking for my new purpose in life and I know how powerful it can be. I had all the answers but I didn’t know how to unlock them, which is where coaching helped.

Since publishing “Coddiwomple” I have been contacted by many readers looking for support and guidance during their own journeys with Grief and Loss. I want to be able to give the best value that I can; and I don’t just mean in the monetary sense (although that’s very important), I mean as in provide the best support that I can, and that’s what drew me to train as a Life Coach myself. I felt I wanted to put more tools in my Support Tool Box.

I love what I do and I get genuine goosebumps when I see clients’ faces light up with “Ah-haaa Moments” and I love seeing them reaching their potential.

Sessions usually last about an hour and can take place face-to-face, online or on the ‘phone and I tailor them to your individual requirements.

If you would like to know more about how I might be able to assist you I offer a FREE no obligation 20 minute Discovery Call so you can find out if I am the right person for you to work with.

Sounds exciting doesn’t it?  What will you discover?

I can be contacted on hello@thecoddiwomplelady.com or you can find me on Facebook as The Coddiwomple Lady and we can arrange that first call to reveal your stepping-stones to happiness and fulfilment.

What my customers say…

Lovely true story

Well written, what a lovely true story with laughter love and heartbreak. Excellent read grips you from the start and holds you all the way.

Robert B, Tunbridge Wells,Kent

An amazing book…

It is an amazing book I could not put it down, although it is also very sad but to me it shows happiness can also come out of darkness and live every day to the full and take time to enjoy what is around you.

Tammy W – Orpington, Kent

Amazing journal…

A amazing journal filled with life changing experiences of losing parents within a short time. Wendy has a warmth that comes through as well as a fun side which in grief we suppress. It is a beautiful story and it is just sad it is a true story. This book also gives some insight into signs of cancer which can easily be ignored.

Cath M – Gravesend, Kent

…made me feel so relaxed.

I have just finished your beautiful book, haven’t been able to put it down! It made me laugh and cry at different points but it was a lovely read, it made me feel so relaxed.

Sharon A – Worthing, Sussex

Loved your book!

Loved your book! The first half had me sniffling but the second half was a great laugh. So glad to know a bit more about you and your wonderful journey.

Jan B – Tunbridge Wells, Kent

Five Stars! A+

Wendy absolutely loved the book. you write so honestly with humour and passion…..it filled me with all kinds of emotions from start to finish. I have passed it on to my Mum who is currently reading it. I’m hoping it will help and inspire her almost ten years on from losing my Dad. I will also be recommending it to patients in my carer support groups…..it shines with positivity and hope for the future. Congratulations on your success….it is so well deserved. You have helped me so much over the years to feel more positive about life, love and loss of loved ones, and I have rediscovered a wanderlust that was deeply buried. A must read indeed!  A*

Thank you for writing a fantastic book

Dear Wendy,

Thank you for writing such a fantastic book.

It is written with such clear and honest detail which makes it easy to follow your journey of discovery. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Obviously it was sad, also inspiring and very amusing in parts. I think I would have followed a similar path;. Travel is good for the soul. Denise F – Kent

It is so thoroughly uplifting

If you haven’t read “From Cancer To Coddiwomple” by Wendy Jennings, I would thoroughly recommend it💛 Wendy is a beautiful soul and her book brings such love and hope, plus her sense of humour, that she also shared with her parents, it is so thoroughly uplifting💚 – Joanne A, Maidstone, Kent

“I have and always will believe there is always a positive and you have just proved that 100% ” Angela G, Wales

Hi Wendy, I have just finished your book here in Mauritius, I only started it yesterday morning and was totally hooked. It made me cry, laugh, and able to go on the travel adventure with you. It brought back so many memories of when my Mum had Cancer and what we all went through and like your my family has a warped sense of humour and that’s how we coped. I could also relate to your Australian trips as we obviously visited some of the same places when we went there……. I have and always will believe there is always a positive and you have just proved that 100% . AG – Wales
