Coaching Client Testimonials
What coaching clients have said:
"Working with a coach has enabled me to take
control of my life. Heather has helped me to concentrate on making
positive choices and has given me the confidence to do what I really want to
do. My life is now much fuller and more enriching. I have clear
goals and direction, and I know what I need to focus on to achieve
them. Heather is very supportive and perceptive, and I would have no hesitation
in recommending her coaching to anyone who wants to turn his/her life around.
am very pleased with the results of my life coaching. Heather has been
exceptionally supportive at a time when I have wanted to explore change in
many areas of my life. She has a very professional approach and an informed,
inspired and broad outlook, and I have found my sessions with her humorous
and uplifting. She has introduced me to creative ways of using my thinking
and power to influence to bring about change and positive outcomes, and this
is now making all the difference.
"You have been an important person for me,
Heather, and I have gained important things from my work with you which were
not what I had expected to gain from our coaching. I have appreciated your
perspective and how you process things, and, very much, your spiritual focus and your gentle way of
bringing me back to my own again, an area of my life that is important but
that needed more attention. I have also appreciated your gentle directness, your kindness and what you have shared about yourself in our
coaching has been an amazing experience for me. I wasn't sure
what direction my life was going in, was confused about my options and
didn't know which one was right for me. Heather has the gift of
being able to see into the depths of my very soul and help me believe
in myself. It has been an incredible journey and she has helped
me bring out the best in myself. I thank her from the bottom of
my heart. She is an amazing woman."
"I am feeling
seriously better about life now since my coaching sessions with you. Business has really taken off
and it's going to be a record month by a long shot! I feel
really powerful and my self confidence has been considerably
restored. I have a renewed belief in what I can do and can now
see the jigsaw falling into place. Thank you!"
“Coaching with Heather has
helped me to cope with a major life change after being widowed and
moving house. It has helped in restoring my self confidence by
showing me how my thoughts and concerns affect how I feel. I
worry less now, have better control over my moods and feel more positive
about life again.
"By the time I
approached Heather for coaching, I had already sorted out many practical problems in my
life but I was still being held back by a whole load of emotional issues.
I knew what they were and in many cases why they were there but I didn't
seem able to resolve them. Instead of just letting me talk them over,
Heather gently encouraged me to look at these problems objectively, to think about
how I could do something about them but, best of all, she provided me with
tools and strategies to tackle them head on for the first time. She
gave me the confidence to start to take control of my life, and as I put her
strategies to the test, I was delighted to find that they worked. I
now realise that it is up to me to shape my life the way I want it to be -
it is both my right and my responsibility. Thank you, Heather, for
your coaching support, your understanding, your guidance and your humour. I am
still steering myself forward, but I can honestly say that I am happier now
than I have been for a long time.
"Hello from a past client! I don't know if you remember me coming to you for life coaching sessions around the summer of 2004. I've kept meaning to contact you to let you know how much I appreciated the sessions with you and to give you a wee update. I've been spurred into action today as I've given your web site details out to a colleague (not the first time!) and it reminded me to email you.
just wanted to let you know that you really helped me turn my life around
through your work with me. I still think about the things you spoke about and
that I learnt. After our work together I met a lovely man I'm now living
with, and we have a wee baby boy who is 11 weeks old tomorrow! Thank you for
those sessions, Heather.
"Heather's perspective and insight have been among the most significant influences
on my personal growth.”
Just a short note to thank you so much for your recent coaching. I thought you may be
interested to know how the therapy worked. For several days I found it
almost impossible to focus in any way on the negative thoughts of my mother
that had been so distressing for me and decided to leave well alone, but a few days later
I found myself being
aware of other much happier times and thoughts about her which I hadn't realised
had obviously been blocked in me. My husband and I have just returned from a few days away and
I feel so much better ... my grateful thanks once again."
"I suffered from
anxiety which manifested itself as obsessive compulsive disorder, and it
could be debilitating at times. I found it hard to focus, and I worried
about things that other people wouldn't even think about. Heather was
able to examine the causes of a lot of my anxieties and teach me relaxation
methods and how to control the thought processes behind my problems, so that
I am now able to put life's problems into perspective and deal with them much
of Heather’s practical and enduring solutions for effective, enjoyable team
working are now a valuable part of our normal office practice.”
“Heather has excellent
insight into leadership and the practical things leaders can do to be
"It was a pleasure to meet with you this afternoon,
Heather. You were very assuring and gave me a lot to think about.
When I set out in my coaching relationship with Heather, my personal and professional lives were creating acute stress and anxiety for me, and I was finding it increasingly difficult to cope. My health, career, home life, relationships with colleagues, friends and my family were all suffering.

cannot imagine where I would be now without Heather's direction, impartial
and unconditional support, wisdom, insights and encouragement.
Her insights in response to my multiple and complex range of issues were
astounding, and I was excited by the continual ‘Aha’ moments that I was
experiencing on a weekly basis in my coaching sessions. Heather helped me to
identify patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviour that were contributing
to the stressful and painful events that were regular features of my daily
life. She also helped me to identify and adopt effective strategies
for overcoming the negative patterns that were creating so much havoc and
anxiety and gradually destroying my capacity for happiness and emotional

professional effectiveness; my emotional and physical health; a happier
home; lighter and more joyful relationships with everyone I come into
contact with. I am also finding my work experiences more fruitful and
rewarding and am actually embracing them with the kind of energy and
enthusiasm that I used to have in the very early days of my career.
personal qualities are many and really are an enhancement to the coaching
she provides. As I reflect back on the time I have spent with her, I
can honestly say that her integrity, her compassion, and the tangible
passion she has to make a difference in people’s lives have been touching
and inspirational for me.
I know as I go
forward in life that her words will echo in my mind, and the benefits of the
work I did with her with continue to bear fruit.
