“Through a combination of feeling supported and stretch, through questions and conversations, I was able to take myself out of my comfort zone and explore creatively what was important to both me and for the organisations.”

“Career and life coaching gave me the chance to re-evaluate my career and gain a better insight into how I tick. The time and space saw me gain confidence to look at where I could put my strengths to work and give me job satisfaction.”

“Coaching helped me to build confidence in my own abilities. Through the coaching process I saw different approaches to achieve results. Such as sticking to facts rather than bringing in emotion and started to believe that my natural talents were not what everyone else could do! My talents were actually my strengths and once I started to believe in myself, I started to see a shift in getting results at work for myself and increased sales for the business.”
