I would highly recommend Vanessa as, by far and away, the best coach I have ever come across. What sets her apart for me is that she is very authentic with values in the real world.
Her greatest strength is her ability to share her own fears and vulnerability; this means, as a client, you feel you are not an object that is being coached but someone who is having real life experiences shared with you, by someone who genuinely does and wants to understand you as a person, and during coaching sessions you feel an equal, that she is bringing the best out in you.
She really is one in a million and I would highly recommend her.
Jayne, Marketing Director
I have worked with other coaches before, but none like Vanessa, who gets to the core of an individual and brings out the best.
Without you even realising what your best is. Are you brave enough to get under the skin? It is tiring work but worth it. I wish I would have met her sooner.
Vanessa is very energetic, generous, creative and extremely resourceful. Working with her, I’ve felt supported and encouraged. She has helped me align with what is truly important to me, she has been a mirror and a role model. She walks the talk!
I have had lots of insights with her and great guidance in creating my new business, as well as lots of laughter. I definitely recommend her!
Vanessa saw right into the core of me, what I can be, and called me to be that and then some. I am now connected to my life purpose, living the dream, playing large; have stepped into my power and have the courage to speak the truth.
I have blossomed as a leader.
Louise, Transformation Manager
Vanessa's enthusiasm for the job that she does is contagious.
Her empathy towards her client is the unique quality that makes her stand out, and this approach makes her someone trustworthy, so you can bring out your true self with her.
I say ‘trustworthy’ because you as an individual need to be listened to non-judgmentally so you feel comfortable to share your personal story, and Vanessa was able to resurface my values and principles through my story.
She has encouraged me to see the other side of the precipice which I had been avoiding during a very difficult period of my life, and this has been truly transformative.
In short, Vanessa can guide, inspire and empower her clients to achieve their full potential.
Vanessa has a beautiful way of pulling information out...even the things you aren't sure you can or want to see. She is incredibly gentle, but encourages you to move forward...to see the possibility.
She has an amazing gift for helping you see your own light. And not just seeing it but locating it within yourself so that you can access it at any time. Very powerful and highly recommended.
Vanessa’s approach has helped me put sustainable changes in place in my everyday work to reduce the effect the daily grind was having on my ability to do my job.
She uses compassion and humour in equal measure, and I end each session feeling I have made progress. She directs me to resources which help me understand how and why we find ourselves feeling the strain and how simple changes can be used to counterbalance this.
Quite simply the most useful time I have ever spent on my education or personal development.
Sabine, L&D, OD, Coach
Vanessa doesn't let you get away from yourself. So often in coaching we look at what we need to do and avoid ourselves a little; at least, that's a familiar pattern with me.
Coaching with Vanessa means getting to know yourself and it all starts there.
Darren, Managing Director
I reached out to Vanessa when I hit a particularly sticky spot – THE STICKY SPOT – the big one, that’s been holding me back from stepping into the full expression of my work – and my life – for years.
Working with Vanessa was like having the shades pulled up on my life so the light could flood in – and it’s stayed in.
Working with her was like playing with colour and light, making new pictures out of old ones, seeing the same diamond that I see in myself – but approaching it from a completely new angle. I recommend her without reservation.
Amy, Business Owner
I found my sessions with Vanessa extremely insightful, eye-opening and transformative.
She is an excellent listener and truly skillful in her ability to read body language in one moment and adapt to the information provided by doing an off-the-cuff exercise the next.
The sessions allowed me to develop my leadership skills, grow in confidence and become more assertive as a result. An invaluable coaching experience which I would highly recommend, especially for the skeptics!
Marion, Transformation Director
We all have crossroads in our personal life, and they can seem unfathomable. As a business owner, those crossroads come even more frequently and can seem insurmountable in terms of decision making.
Vanessa kickstarts your thinking, she challenges beautifully and gets you thinking in a different way and ultimately gives you a toolkit to help you navigate not only this crossroads, but the next and the next.
Cannot recommend her highly enough to anyone who feels stuck and simply wants to get on, get back on track or wants a new track.
Karen, Business Owner
Vanessa coached me following redundancy from a Managing Director’s position within the publishing industry.
She helped me identify and prioritise my core business and home values, re-energise and give me belief in myself again as well as challenge some of my thought processes.
Vanessa has made the whole process incredibly good fun, friendly and empowering!
