To be successful, a coaching relationship needs to be balanced. I may have a lot of coaching experience. I may have sound knowledge, skills, tools, resources and wisdom to offer my client but my client also has a lot to offer me. After all, they’re the experts in their own life. Therefore, as I make it clear from the very beginning, we meet as equals. We are a partnership and we need each other to make the relationship work successfully. With that in mind, this is what my clients say about working with me.

“Having just finished working with you I’m looking back over the last 12 sessions and the changes are awesome! My relationship with my family, friends and work colleagues has been transformed! I used to see myself as a victim, blaming other people. Now I look within myself and I realised I’m responsible for me! That’s HUGE! I realise now that I’m in control of my life! I feel reborn!”
“You have the empathy to understand people’s problems and their deepest fears. I particularly appreciate your ‘down-to-earthness’ when you make suggestions. I find the way you communicate (clearly, firmly as well as with humour) just right for someone who feels on the brink of an abyss of un-knowing – a scary place! You’re particularly good at picking us up, dusting us down and then placing us on an illuminated path, making a brighter future ahead. Thank you!”
“It’s hard for me to articulate just how much you have helped me over the last few months. I was struggling with many things. You have helped me to shift my perspective on life, and get to know, understand and accept myself a lot more. It’s sometimes painful to face the truth but so wonderful to come out at the other end liking who you are and becoming more empowered. Thank you, Sue!”
“Sue is an inspirational guide to bring the best out of yourself. She is encouraging, never puts you down, and makes suggestions to work on to help you enhance your life.”
“Sue, you helped me to understand myself better. This has enabled me to know my Gremlins and stop them controlling me, leading to a happier and more fulfilling life.”
“Sue, your gentle guidance liberated me to leave home and embark on the greatest years of my life so far (I am 63) and to find renewed joy in living which is priceless and the greatest gift you could have given me. No amount of money would be enough to pay for what your skills have brought about, Sue! With love and grateful thanks,”
“Working with Sue enabled me to move out of a very self-sabotaging dark place into the present self-accepting person that I find myself to be today which is now been embedded in my heart. I cannot recommend her highly enough as a mentor, life coach and an inspiring person. She has not only exceeded my expectations, but she helped me close the door to living in my past. I am truly grateful. Thank you, Sue.”
“Sue, you are simply a wonderful and wise woman, very intuitive and insightful. Without your gentle but firm guidance I know I would still be stuck with no clear direction. Thank you!”
“Dear Sue, I have some good news: I have been asked to relocate to Essex to take a new area that needs my skills to sort it out and, in return, I get a great relocation package, and Tim and I are buying a house together! If you had told me a year ago that I would be getting such positive feedback from the senior leaders, would have met such a great man and that I would be moving to Essex to start a new life with him I would never have believed you! See how much your coaching has helped me! Thanks, Sue!”
“When I started working with you I was personally and business-wise at a very low ebb. I don’t know how you did it but I now have complete clarity of what I want from life and how to achieve it! I have worked with mentors and with business coaches in the past but you have been able to combine both roles. I would describe you as a Samaritan, Friend and Mentor. With your help I have been able to close the door on two very stressful and worrying years, and I have regained my momentum to get on with and enjoy life. Thanks for being in my corner.”
Roger, Owner and Business Development Director
“…Sue helps me realise my true potential in life as a Step Mum, wife and, of course, business woman. She seems to be able to unravel my mind and set me on clear paths to success of a different kind. Success for my family is very different from success for my business. She is tough. Sue does not allow you to hide in a corner; she challenges your deepest thoughts and she helps you find your purpose in life.”
“Dear Sue, Where to start? It’s been a year now that I’ve worked with you and I would never believe a year ago the changes I’ve made and the things I’ve done.”
“Thank you for your support and professional expertise that helped me through it all.”
“You are fantastic at what you do! I now know that anything is possible! I did it, Sue! Thank you for helping me believe I could!”
“As one of Sue’s younger clients, coming out of university and into the real world of work and life changes, I was struggling to find my way and get the ball rolling. She really helped me to focus my mind and hone in on what I really wanted to do in my career and in my life.”
“There were many tears shed and I managed to work my way through plenty of tissues and cups of tea but Sue’s warm and safe environment helped me to open up. Our sessions forced me to put essential time aside to reflect on all aspects of my life and create a good equal and organised balance. It was what I really needed!”
“Sue helped me to clear my head and stretch out my thoughts out, one by one. Did you ever expect this last year? I didn’t! Thank you, Sue.”
“Dear Sue, I would like to thank you for the strong support you provided me this past year. Your understanding and ability to focus me coupled with a good sense of humour ensured that our sessions were fruitful. The goals set at the beginning have nearly all been achieved and the added value of being able to discuss openly my ideas with someone with no axe to grind was of immense value to me. I would recommend your services to anyone looking to make changes in both their personal life as well as business. Many thanks.”
