“I met Helen at a time when I felt confused and stuck. I had just recently changed careers and set up a new organisation. I just didn’t know how to take it all forward. After only six months of coaching with her, I feel I am now at a very different place.
With Helen’s excellent listening, focus and the ability to cut it all to the chase, I could very quickly start seeing the big picture and have a route map for how to get there.
Helen is an enabler and always open to explore and discover, walk the unbeaten track with you.
My organisation and I personally gained huge credibility in a very short time and I now know where I am going with full confidence for success. Without Helen’s dedication for enabling me to see my own potential and guiding me through the journey or how to put that in use, this would not be possible. I am grateful to her for ‘Orient8ing’ me.”

"In my regular coaching sessions with Helen I have been able to work through some mental hurdles which had been holding me up at work. I had been too busy using the excuse of focusing on the urgent or important and not addressing some areas for development in the process. The result was I had not moved my role and my career on as much as I should have.
The sessions with Helen have given me real focus and been great. She challenges you to analyse problems in different ways. Having worked at board level enables her to put a Senior Management perspective on what you want to achieve and how this will fit into the overall business goals and not just your own goals. Through working through my main areas to develop step by step I have come on leaps and bounds in my job even receiving an SCJ International Markets Best Practice Award. I am already getting signals from my Manager to shape the role further.
Thank you Helen I will always remember to break a big problem down into smaller chunks.”

“Helen is a dedicated coach who went the extra mile to support me and to help me to grow, both personally and within my role.
We had some fun and engaging sessions which acted as real enablers for me to prioritise my actions, to gain in impact and to improve my performance.”

“I approached Helen to support me in returning to work after a career break to raise my family. My confidence was quite low, but through skillful listening, Helen has helped me to see the world of possibilities that lay ahead.
Coaching with Helen seems to me a little like going up a flight of stairs ... sometimes you take a step yourself, on other occasions Helen gives you a gentle nudge to keep you moving, but her passion for results means that you never take a step back down. Her energy as a coach is boundless and infectious and always leaves you feeling positive."
