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”.
Gloria Mella EuropeAid Account Manager, Save the Children
"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.”
