Client Feedback:

"Heather’s coaching style is compassionate, insightful and practical. She holds her deep knowledge of HR procedure and law lightly, and responds insightfully to the issues at hand. I have particularly appreciated her sensitive handling of discussions around managing disability in the workplace, and practical advice while developing next steps."Emily – Civil Servant

“I came to see Heather because I was having difficulties managing some members of my team. Our sessions have helped me to set achievable goals to tackle these issues and achieve the results I have wanted for a long time. She’s a great sounding board, really supportive and easy to talk to. I always look forward to our coaching sessions, knowing that I’ll come away feeling clearer and more positive about the issues I’m facing at work.” HP, Aida Store Owner

“Working with Heather has been really useful for my self-confidence and to understand what my key strengths are. Working with her alongside the Civil Service Positive Action Pathway development scheme has been perfect. I have been able to focus on key topics and develop a strengths based profile which feels more like me and less like buzz words. Heather has also helped me to reflect on what my priorities are and together, we have been able to discover the next steps for me. I would recommend Heather’s coaching to anyone, but especially those who want to develop their confidence, particularly after a career break or period of maternity leave.” Jess- Civil Servant

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a life coach's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the life coach to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
