"Helen and I started working together at a time when I was taking on more responsibility and more was expected of me from a leadership perspective. This coincided with me reducing my work week to 4 days plus entering a mid-life transition that was at times frustrating and distracting for me. Helen is a highly effective coach. We worked together for a year and in that time I experienced Helen as sensitive, supportive, challenging and highly effective. I knew that Helen was invested in my success and I trusted her completely.
Helen adapted her style and used a variety of different interventions to promote a different way for me to look at myself and consider the options available to me. I am now in a very different place and attribute that to the work that Helen did with me."
Angie Brayshaw Head of People and OD
Helen has seen me through a huge career transition, and at each step has helped me feel more professionally confident while at the same time coaching me to continuously improve as a leader and team manager. I leave each session feeling inspired and re-energized.
She balances the use of a variety of coaching techniques with a warm and approachable style that encourages me to be open and honest. She helps me explore issues from angles that I would never have considered- and in a way that is somehow both challenging and reassuring.
Helen’s effective coaching has been a major influence in a successful transition to a higher-level leadership role within my organization!

...It has dramatically affected the way I work. I feel that I now have a supportive peer group at work who, through their own collective knowledge and expertise can directly, positively influence my own productivity and effectiveness.
I now interact daily with my peers, utilise their expertise to help problem solve tasks and get thinks done, which I would have previously tried to solve alone.
“This is the first time that I have been coached. I found working with Helen to be a really pleasant and fun experience, especially when working through some real work issues.
Helen’s enthusiasm, practical advice, and experience helped me to enhance my performance in the workplace”.
