Here are just a few testimonials of my work:
- "I have worked with Jeanette for more than a year now. I can honestly say that the coaching sessions I have had with her have been life changing. Before I started work with her, I found that every day stresses got on top of me and impacted on my ability to be the leader I wanted to be. Jeanette was able to get to the root of those stresses and offer practical guidance in both physical techniques and mental processes to enable me to manage that stress and to focus on both my personal and team goals. Jeanette adapts her style to get down to the small details of a specific problem, or to help develop overarching leadership skills based on my learning needs at the time. I would recommend Jeanette to anybody who wishes to maximise their potential as a leader, or who just wishes to get through the day without a panic attack!" - Amy S
- "Jeanette is empathic and perceptive, with excellent listening skills. She helped me to clarify the issues I was having, in order for me to create a plan for moving forward. Jeanette is honest and trustworthy and I would highly recommend her as a coach." - Pam C
“The style of Jeanette’s coaching is perfect. The calm approach ensures that you think about elements from a different point of view. She is incredibly friendly, funny and calming. I think that Jeanette has the perfect combination of elements to make her style unique. I would like to thank Jeanette for all of the time she has given to my coaching sessions. I have found every session incredibly useful and insightful - they truly have made a large difference to how I feel about work, and the way that I now work through certain situations. I would recommend Jeanette to anyone as an excellent coach, a coach who can help you succeed and help you on your personal development journey.” - Kate T
“My coach was empathetic whilst remaining firm - she was intelligent and articulate and annoyingly asked all the right (but sometimes difficult) questions. She did not patronise or judge me and gave me time and space to explore my own thinking, at a time when I was not giving myself permission to do so. I feel like a weight has lifted off my shoulders now and am utterly grateful for the guardian angel who supported me through a tough few months....my emotional sat nav!” - Laura L
“My initial objective was to gain more confidence in giving presentations. As the coaching progressed, it became apparent that my nervousness about public speaking was a symptom of a much wider range of issues around lack of confidence, assertiveness and wanting to please others. Jeanette has helped me to think about and clarify these issues, and come up with tools and strategies to address them. Jeanette has a lovely way about her - she was gentle and kind, but made me think about some quite deep issues. She had a gentle questioning style which made me realise personality traits I hadn’t really thought about before - but it felt as if I actually knew them all along. The coaching sessions felt like a very safe environment where I could talk about things openly. I always felt that everything we talked about was in absolute confidence - Jeanette made this very clear throughout. There have already been several instances where I have had to disagree with fairly strong characters - where before I would have backed down, I have been brave enough to stand my ground and argue for what I believe in. So far it has worked!” - Becky V
Faced with the prospect of a daunting promotion, I felt I needed some coaching to build my confidence and make me ready for my new role. Jeanette was recommended to me and she helped me really think about what challenges were ahead. She gave me the courage to admit which challenges were giving me the most anxieties and then we worked together to find solutions. I’ve been in the role for a few months now and have been able to use strategies Jeanette gave me to make me more effective in my role and to have the confidence to say I’m doing well. I can’t thank her enough. - ID

When you first contact me we will discuss what you need over the phone. Once you are sure that you'd like coaching, we will arrange our first appointment. Appointments can be via telephone, face to face (if local) or Zoom/FaceTime.

I usually meet with my clients every two weeks, however this can be flexible and we agree timings of our meetings as we go along.
I will invite you to keep a coaching journal, as it really helps to embed your learning and your light bulb moments. Your journal is entirely yours and can be made up of written content, pictures, sticking in favourite pictures or quotes or anything else you can think of that helps you to think and learn. I never ask to see the journal - it is completely private to you.
