"Having Jaqui as my coach has given me a deeper awareness which has enabled me to make changes so that I feel more congruent in what I do. The action steps we negotiated during the sessions have been really useful in helping me to move forward in work and in my personal life. I found her support and challenge to be exactly right for me. Her structured, yet flexible approach allowed me to explore and reflect on some important issues. I valued Jaqui’s ability to see where I was coming from. The groundwork before the first session was so useful."
“I recently undertook one of Jaqui’s specialist executive one to one coaching courses. I chose to work with her as she has an excellent track record in her field and has helped executives at all levels change careers, achieve promotions, negotiate improved salary packages and implement work-life balance strategies which make a significant difference. I have found that I have achieved breakthrough insights and have a heightened sense of clarity about my value, and how to position myself and my Company in order to create a fulfilling and exciting portfolio of employment and business activity.”
“Jaqui is an inspiring and positive person who really makes you teach out and understand how endless your own goals are. Her energy is truly fascinating and I wish I could bottle it! She has an amazing ability to turn things on their head and totally change your perception of a situation you felt was impossible to manage.”
“I recently undertook one of Jaqui’s specialist one to one coaching courses in a personal capacity. The road was challenging but definitely worth it. Jaqui has challenged my way of thinking as well as helping me to look at things differently and in a way that allows me to get the best out of myself and the challenges I face. The sessions really have made a real difference to me and I use the skills she has shared with me everyday Finally I would like to say Jaqui’s boundless energy, enthusiasm and passion for what she does is an inspiration.”
