Requiring a new challenge but unsure what it should be and even in what direction I should be heading, Shirley proved to be the perfect coach to help with the next steps. Her listening, understanding and collaborative approach and knowledge opened my eyes to the possibilities there are for me. I have no hesitation in recommending Shirley for any career or business advice you may require. You will not be disappointed.

Be inspired to have the conversation
I needed a kickstart to help me move forward with a second business, which had been languishing for a little while. In a couple of sessions, Shirley helped me to find some focus and unblock some of the barriers which had been holding me back. She helped me work on improving my confidence as well as making some key business decisions. Her insightful approach was of great benefit and I would definitely recommend her if need help getting unstuck in your career or business
Overall, I found the process very helpful, supportive and insightful. When I first came to you, I knew partly what I didn’t want from a job/career, but was unclear on what I did want. The sessions provided a platform to discuss my thoughts, ideas and jumbled views in a supportive, professional and totally confidential environment. I was at ease from the first few minutes and knew I could talk in total confidence and trust.
Shirley is an intelligent and thoughtful professional coach. She’s inquisitive and rather than taking a standard “top down” / standard questions approach, her methods are more engaging and collaborative. Shirley has a substantial corporate experience which provides her with the informed platform to engage constructively and develop a deep relationship with her clients. I recommend her!
Shirley’s professional and caring approach was different to other coaches I had come across. She gave me the time to unravel what was going on for me. Her questions helped me discover what was really important for me to move forward on, which could have easily disappeared at the bottom of the to-do list. Her insight into my patterns and behaviour were really helpful for me to understand why am behaving the way I am, and therefore what I can do to change it. Thank you Shirley for helping me take the right next step.
You played a key role in me obtaining my new job. I knew my previous role was not the right one for me but you helped to identify what I required from a job to be fulfilled, what motivates me. Your assistance with interview preparation and technique was brilliant and allowed me to feel calm and confident for my interview. I am truly grateful for the support and encouragement you have given me.
