What my clients say

One of my greatest challenges has been managing fertility issues alongside my career. It can limit opportunities and make you reassess your priorities. Emma helped me to focus on my values and use this to drive my decision making. I would definitely recommend coaching with Emma to any woman with a career. It is worth the investment

Elizabeth - Education policy - April 2020

I have thoroughly enjoyed and benefitted greatly from my coaching sessions with Emma.  Her steady pace of questioning and gentle way of challenging has allowed me to take time to think about what I really want my goals to be and what benefits achieving those goals will bring.  Through Emma’s skillful coaching, I have been able to structure a better working week, which fits in well with my role as a parent and has given me a far better work-life balance than I had previously.  Each of our sessions have resulted in me taking actions away and I am surprised at how well and how quickly I was able to take steps towards achieving my goals.  I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Emma to other people who would benefit from her professional and thorough coaching

Natalie - March 2020

The sessions have been very positive and helped to structure my time effectively following redundancy. I’ve been able to hold a mirror in front of me. The ability to express my current situation out loud to an impartial person has helped so much. You discuss and are asked questions that you may not ask yourself. A massive thanks to Emma for giving me the opportunity to help guide my thinking and help me remain in a structured environment. I’m now back in work and have had a number of options. Emma has a calm and engaging personality and has been a pleasure to look forward to meeting at the sessions. Emma was fantastic and is a wonderful coach. She is easy to get along with and showed great interest

Deborah - December 2019

Emma coached me on a variety of subject areas including goals for my health management, a book which I am working towards publishing and the development of my own business through Social Media marketing. Emma’s robust approach to self accountability and setting timely goals was a real upward call and each session turned into a positive driver to closing the gap between where I want to be in terms of my goals and where I actually am at the present time. Two main positives that I have gained from the coaching sessions with Emma are;  self accountability; When will I to do this? Success in goals are about taking actions to achieve that success, and this is where Emma does a great job with encouraging positive timely actions towards progression and achievement. Secondly, Emma was very good at helping me to decide on time frames for each action I chose to take at the end of each session. Each session with Emma was very positive. I would have no hesitation in recommending Emma to anyone seeking a Coach for assistance with achieving their goals

Randal - August 2019

I had previously thought I would not benefit from something like coaching. I live a busy stressful life like many and had always just tried to deal with the stress in my own way. One of the elements of my life that was particularly stressful was work, I had started a new career and felt incredibly  pressurised. After a few sessions with Emma I felt able to deal with the pressure in a positive way….. We talked situations through and with her guidance, patience and understanding my thought process turned from negative to positive.  Emma helped me to focus on my successes not my failures and helped me identify techniques to deal with colleagues whom I was struggling to work alongside. I would highly recommend Emma’s coach services for any element of your life

Sharon - April 2019

I have had the privilege of working with Emma as my coach since January 2019. Over the course of the 4 months Emma has been instrumental in helping me navigate areas of focus and importance in my life from; Business development, career change and progression to personal growth and mindset shifts.

 Each coaching session was conducted timely and professionally, without judgment or opinion but instead with consideration, affirming praise and encouragement and achievable goal setting. Although the sessions were not on a weekly basis, the agreed coaching sessions provided time to realistically action the personal goals and targets and helped with problem solving and self-reflection.

 As a coach I felt that Emma provided a calm, safe and trusting environment which allowed for ease of dialogue and confidentiality. Emma demonstrated her ability to use sound questioning and listening skills which prompted thought provoking discussion and action. Each session was well structured, meaningful and intentional, and as a result action points were established and reviewed at the start of every next session.

 Overall, Emma was a fantastic Coach which I would highly recommend to others for personal or professional coaching and I myself would use her again in the future. I believe we were able to build a strong working relationship that fostered openness and progression.

 A very beneficial experience that will have a lasting impact

Tremaine - June 2019

Ahead of discussing the impact of Emma’s coaching on the goals set during our sessions, I believe it is first worth mentioning the overall professional approach adopted by Emma. She was clear from the start how the process would work, provided documentation to support this, and was always exactly on time for all our sessions which were agreed and confirmed well ahead of time.

 She was patient throughout, demonstrated excellent recall in terms of my previous statements, and at all times I felt that she was “on my side” in helping me progress.

 I was able to formulate goals easily under her insightful questioning, and in helping me to understand that I had control over the matters discussed, I was able to score early wins and achieve quickly my initial goals. In particular this involved applying a level of discipline to my personal life in line with the project approach we had identified as necessary to my forward progress. We moved on to set secondary and third level goals and I feel confident that I will take what I have understood from our sessions and apply myself to continuing to progress in what I now term Phase 3 of my life.

 I feel certain that I would not have been able to do this without Emma’s help.

Carl - June 2019

I believe that Emma has opened my eyes to new ways of approaching old problems.  Having a seemingly insurmountable problem in the way of achieving my goals was swept away by the clever use of questioning to reveal both what really motivates me and how I can use past successes to achieve new successes.

 Emma’s careful attention to time and relevance, (keeping me on track by intervening when I went astray), kept me focused and helped me see the resources and skills I have within my broad remit and what they could bring in helping me to complete my actions and tasks.

 Emma offered me the opportunity to break down my life into bite sized, shorter term goals which across 6 sessions has me well placed to attain a life balance between my personal life, my volunteering and my development as a coach.

 Each of my sessions helped me qualify and quantify the issues and how to improve upon my initial successes as a Chair of Council of Trustees in a large but challenging Society. Tackling these issues in dealing with time management, leadership skills, managing difficult people and motivating other Trustees and volunteers to gain overall acceptance, has made a real difference in how I undertake all I do and in the outcomes

Christine - April 2019

Emma’s coaching sessions were brilliant and I would highly recommend her. I had six sessions and in that time I gained exceptional clarity around the values that are important to me in my career and life, with a positive focus on where I want to be in the next few years. She is supportive & considerate but also challenges you to make you think about what you want in the future – which is something I hadn’t properly taken the time to do. I have recently started a new role and her coaching has been invaluable in ensuring that it offers me what is important to me and is the right fit. Emma’s style is really calm and kind, which makes talking to her so easy to talk to! I thoroughly enjoyed our sessions – and the fact they could be done on Skype made it simple to fit in to my schedule. I look forward to working with Emma again in the future
