What my clients say

 
  • "Carol helped me focus on what I really wanted and broke through the barriers which were holding me back. She’s innovative, inspirational and her style provided me with room for thought and reflection."

    Senior Civil Servant, Westminster


  • “Carol coached me on and off for about two years, and I learnt a tremendous amount from her. What I found particularly useful was the ability to hold me to account, letting me come up with my own solutions and the practical nature of her advice. She can also do the creative, visioning side of coaching, but it was the practical things that I've found myself putting into practice year after year. I'd definitely recommend Carol as a coach for those of you trying to build new businesses and visions in high pressure environments.”

    Senior Partner, PA Consulting


  • “I really enjoyed the sessions and found Carol challenging but supportive. Carol certainly enabled me to consider different options and encouraged me to have confidence in my own abilities.”

    Vice-President, Chartis Insurance


  • "I found Carol’s coaching invaluable. It helped me focus on my strengths and what I wanted to do in driving the business forward. Above all, it gave me time to think. Carol knew what to say and when to say it. Coaching is an art – not everyone can do it, let alone do it well and, for me, Carol was a great artist!"

    Director of Risk Advisory Service, BDO Stoy Hayward


  • “My ongoing mentoring relationship with Carol has been and still is of great value, as I find it easy to express my concerns and seek advice from her on every aspect of my business and any major decision I need to make. She challenges me to think of things in a different way and gives me a different and much needed perspective. Carol would definitely be of great added value to entrepreneurs and professionals in any field, as she brings a wealth of experience and an understanding of business challenges in general.”
