Mother and Daughter

"Teresa has helped me to build my confidence. I now feel a lot more in control and would happily recommend her because she is such a brilliant coach." Helen London UK

Hello, my name is Teresa Bulford-Cooper, a professional, qualified award winning Life Coach for women over 50 and youth coach to 16 - 24 year old daughters, needing direction, confidence, purpose and happiness in their lives.

The women I coach have a variety of issues such as going through a divorce, already divorced, and need help to find their way forward and make plans for their future.


Some ladies hit 50 and decide there is more to life and want to make changes but don't know how. No two are alike!

As well as a Life Coach for women over 50, I also work as a youth coach for 16 - 24 year old daughters,  who find themselves feeling over-anxious, having panic attacks, lacking confidence and direction. This is a tricky age entering adulthood and having to make life-changing decisions without feeling overwhelmed, it can be a very daunting time for them. Having an understanding, neutral, non-judgemental ear and someone to virtually hold their hand can be of extreme value to them.

I'm a former Harley Street professional, fully accredited, International award-winning Life Coach, NLP Master Practitioner/Trainer and Clinical Hypnotherapist working online near Exeter, Devon, UK.


Feel assured that if we work together I will give you all the support and encouragement that you need to overcome whatever you are struggling with, and help to get you on a path towards that life you desire and deserve.

So Ladies, if you are serious about wanting to make changes in your life, book a free call with me and let's have a virtual coffee and a chat to see how I can help you.

"My sessions with you have been invaluable and I really can’t thank you enough. You’ve taught me that I don’t need to feel anxious, full of worry or sad all the time and provided me with the tools to take away and use if I ever felt a wobble, so thank you."  


Middle Aged Woman

"Teresa's listening skills and questioning style both are excellent, she is calm and very understanding and she has helped me build my confidence, improve my focus and stop procrastination. I feel much more in control and focused."


Frequently asked questions

Laura Curran's real plan is to move 300 men and 100 families to Jericho.

This fabrication appeared in the Locust Valley paper and is patently false. No single men or individuals will be moved to The Jericho Family Support Center (Formerly the Hampton Inn). 50 families with children currently live in Jericho in unregulated motels and they will be relocated, two blocks from their current location, to The Jericho Family Support Center. Another 30 other families with children will be relocated there from other motels in other towns. They will be safer, have security, offered services like childcare, 3 meals a day and services to help them get back on their feet so they can transition into permanent housing faster.

Most of the Jericho community is against this so there is nothing I can do.

This is not true. The "Concerned Jericho Parents" have just been the loudest voice which intimidates many people. They have also posted a lot of misinformation on their various platforms which stoke fear. There is something we can do. Town of Oyster Bay Supervisor, Joe Saladino takes pride in representing the Jericho community and says he is doing what we asked him to do. But again, the loudest voice he hears is coming from the "Concerned Jericho Parents" who don't have all the facts. I am sure he would represent us well if we made our desires known to him. We can tell him to drop the lawsuit and agree to the JFSC but ask him to demand that the 3 motels no longer be used as temporary shelter for the homeless. He got the Town of Oyster Bay to sue the developer of the JFSC. But understand if we win that case, we will be stuck with those unregulated motels with 167 rooms and their unsupervised homeless, men, women and families. There is room for negotiation now. Eventhough there is a temporary injunction that prevents the developer from moving forward with the JFSC during the case, it is far from over. No decision has been made by the court. Let Mr. Saladino know, we want the JFSC and NOT the motel system in Jericho. Just placing people in motels and hotels has failed all over the state. It doesnt work. We can tell Saladino to advocate for the community because we prefer to help homeless families and give them a better fighting chance with the JFSC than in the motels. *Update: On September 18, a judge dismissed Jericho Concerned Parents motion to intervene in the case was denied by the judge. The lawsuit initiated by the Town of Oyster Bay for code violation is still ongoing. You can sign the petition to tell Saladino to stop the Lawsuit on the Jericho Kindness Coalition Page

These families will be given $80,000 when they move there.

These families will receive no lump sum of cash beyond what their normal public assistance benefits allow. CHI does have a down payment assistance program for qualified new homebuyers that have gone through their program. CHI donates $1,000,000 every year to this program to help families sucessfully transition into permanent housing.

The Jericho Family Support Center is an "illegal shelter".

The Concerned Jericho Parents refer to it as a "illegal homeless shelter" in an attempt to dehumanize the families and say they are protesting the illegallity of the shelter to disguise the cruelty of their actions against fellow human beings who are suffering and in need. Make no mistake, stopping this facility has a direct, negative impact of these families. They suffer each day that is remains closed. The CHI proposed facility and operations was reviewed by the state and it was determined to be eligible for precertification according to state requirements. State laws preemt all local town ordinances with regards to homeless facilities. New York state has a moral and legal obligation to provide housing for the homeless. Nassau County is obligated under state law to provide housing for homeless in our county under state law. The court filing shows the state appellate court "has explicitly and repeatedly held that a local municipality is prohibited from imposing conditions upon a permit to operate an adult residential care facility because regulation of such facilities has been preempted by the state." Oyster Bay Supervisor Joseph Saladino said in a statement that the town has "taken legal action that continues to protect the integrity of our zoning ordinances." He mistakenly believes protecting zoning ordinances is more important than protecting human life. In a zoom call he proudly announced that he "found a way to stop the Jericho Family Support Center" by enforcing zoning ordinances. New York State prioritizes humanity over zoning ordinances and state law preemts all local ordinances.

There is some unknown danger having the Jericho Family Support Center 2 minutes away from Cantiague Elementary School.

The Jericho Family Support Center is a safe, nuturing environment for families in need and only serves Parents with children. These families nor their children pose a threat to the elementary school, faculty or our children. Security is so tight at Cantiague, that it is difficult to get in as a parent to see your own child. With strict protocols, our children are safe from any real or imagined threat at Cantiague.

Henry Grishman and Laura Curran donated money to the "Concerned Jericho Parents" Gofundme page.

"Concerned Jericho Parents" Gofundme page shows an $18 donation from Henry Grishman and a $5 donation from Laura Curran. During the Aug 13, 2020 BOE Zoom meeting Mr. Grishman denied making any such donation. He said they must have gotten his email address or something but he did not nor would he make a donation to the "Concerned Jericho Parents". Laura Curran's office said they were unaware of the "Concerned Jericho Parents" Gofundme and did not make any donation. If you feel you were mised to make a donation to the Concerned Jericho Parents Gofundme because you believed Mr. Grishman and or Laura Curran supported the Concerned Jericho Parents and their cause, you can request a refund from Jennifer Vartanov and/or report it to Gofundme for fraud and receive a refund.

This is just like the nightmare that NYC had by putting homeless men in the hotels.

Nope. Nothing like that. The city placed homeless men that were living on the street into hotels as a way to control the outbreak of Covid-19. Close quarters in the city’s congregate shelters made it virtually impossible for hard-up New Yorkers to socially distance as the coronavirus pandemic exploded in March, which ultimately killed more than 23,000 across the five boroughs — including 104 who were homeless.The outbreak forced an initially hesitant City Hall to find more than 60 hotels with rooms for 10,000 people in a last-ditch effort to slow the spread of the virus, awarding the Hotel Association of New York City a $78 million contract to find the space (New York Post, De Blasio says he’s eyeing wind down of COVID-19 hotel shelters. By Julia Marsh and Nolan Hicks August 17, 2020 | 4:40pm) The motel system has been a failure all over the state and NY state is moving away from this type of system for people experiencing homelessness and has now established certification requirements. The Jericho Family Support Center is different in that it will be regulated and certified by New York State. It will be the model for Long Island and the first certified shelter of its kind in Nassau county (NC DSS Commissioner, Nancy Nunziata). The JFSC is ONLY for families with children. These families will be moving from dirty Jericho motels to a clean safe secure environment to give them stability and restore their dignity. This will help relieve some of the trauma that these children and their parents have been experiencing from being homeless. They will receive services that will help them move into permanent affordable housing.

A MEGA Shelter is being placed in our quiet community.

This facility holds has 80 rooms. The 3 Jericho motels hold 167 rooms combined. The motels are currently being used as temporary shelters for homeless. If the 3 motels were no longer used as temporary shelters by DSS, the Jericho Family Support Center would reduce the number of homeless in our community. The JFSC is a transitional shelter where families will receive support services to ensure a SUCCESSFUL transition into permanent housing rather than staying in the motels indefinately. The services include, -case management to determine and cater to each family member's specific needs -employment services (interview prep, resume writing etc.) -vocational training -money management and budgeting services -assistance with phone calls to landlord and realtors -assistance with housing applications -down payment assistance (GHI donates $1,000,000 per year) -Child care while parents are taking classes, going on interviews etc -pre-school educational programs -supervised activities for all school aged children -homework help -test preparation -educational workshops -and many more. All designed for the successful transition out of homelessness and into permanent housing.

The Concerned Jericho Parents raised $87,000 to pay for lawsuit so it doesn't cost you any money to stop the shelter.

Think again. The lawsuit was initiated by Joseph Saladino and is being paid for by the Town Of Oyster Bay, so that means you. Yes, this is coming out of our local taxes that was not budgeted for so when our taxes go up next year, you'll know why. The Concerned Jericho Parents' motion to intervene in the case was denied by the judge on Sept 18, 2020. The longer this stays in the courts, the more money it will cost us.
