You may feel that it's not easy to talk to a stranger but I'll let one of my clients describe what your coaching experience could be like. I hope this reassures you:
"Madeleine is an exceptional coach.
Very quickly she expanded my thinking way beyond the limits I had set for myself and not only gave me practical step-by-step advice that moved me forward in my career, my business, my personal relationships and my personal development. She also revealed to me the things I was doing in my head that were preventing me from enjoying the success I'd already achieved.
In a very short time, and as a direct result of Madeleine's coaching:
- My confidence soared
- I secured an interview for the job of my dreams
- I got really clear on a part-time business I wanted to build
On top of all this, the process, wisdom and expertise she brought to the coaching allowed me to make changes in myself that deepened my relationship with my girlfriend, improved my interpersonal skills with colleagues at work and most important of all, given me an ongoing realisation that this whole journey is exciting and enjoyable." Ben Green, Cambridge

Trained in Accelerated Business Growth Coaching by Peter Thomson International
I have been on the Business Link Supplier Brokerage to give business advice and I'm an Enterprising Women business mentor. I'm an accredited coach and trainer with the government funded business coaching and leadership training Growth AcceleScheme. So if you're wondering whether it's time to go self-employed I can help you make a decision. If you've already set up a business I can help you avoid the pitfalls (85% of businesses who don't have a coach go out of business in the first 5 years) and improve your business planning, skills (such as marketing and selling) and your results.
I've had a lot of life experiences (being an un-confident young woman; difficult family events growing up; developing into a confident business woman; divorce; wonderful relationships; bereavement; difficult and fulfilling career changes; setting up a business from scratch; going to live and work abroad and coming back to live in the UK; soul searching; investing in personal development courses such as Anthony Robbins Life Mastery; leadership roles, travelling all over the world; having adventures like learning to SCUBA dive ....). That means I have practical experience of dealing with life's challenges, not just a lot of theory. I can help you because it didn't come naturally to me so I understand better the steps you have to take to transform your life - it's easier for me to see that than someone who has always been naturally confident and successful.
Because I have delivered coaching and training in companies, I know what employers are looking for and so I'm better able to guide you towards career success. At the same time my experience of running my own business has given me a skill set that can easily be transferred to creating a successful career.
I used to have a regular slot on Star Radio Fm Cambridgeshire's Employment Hub, where I gave tips and tools to help you grow your career and get the best out of your working relationships. I also occasionally appear on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire's programmes where we talk about topical life issues.

"I recently had a discovery session with Madeleine, and I was blown away by how valuable it was. The questions she asked not only helped me get clear on what I truly wanted to create in my life but also how I could easily do it. Having been coached by many people and I can honestly say that Madeleine is an amazing coach and truly brilliant at what she does. If you get a chance to have a Discovery Session with her I would jump at it because you’ll get so much out of the session – I know I did. Thanks Madeleine." Melina Abbot
"I worked with Madeleine recently in her guise as a personal coach and was really surprised at the results. I have used a personal coach before and never really found much progression in the way we worked through certain areas. Madeleine, however, has a range of really interesting techniques she gets you to do, which really helped me look directly at certain aspects of my life which I had specified, and then allowed me to find all the answers I needed to grow and develop. I would wholeheartedly recommend Madeleine to anyone with life and career challenges who would benefit from more clarity and direction." Rachael Orchard
"I was really skeptical about coaching. My previous experiences of help professionals were people who gave advice without grasping my circumstances, or else who were understanding but couldn't guide me to action. Madeleine, on the other hand! She helped me untangle the complicated situation that's had me really stuck, as well as build up the confidence that I could *do* something about it.
What I especially appreciate is that Madeleine is both warm and no-nonsense. She knew when to be sympathetic and when to challenge me. Moreover, when she did challenge me it was in a way that supported me exploring (and correcting) my role in the problem. I was stuck on the need to feel blameless, but she helped me let go of that. So if you've got an interpersonal situation that you don't know how to work through, try working with Madeleine. My career and my partner are seriously glad I did!” Ray Jassin, designer and researcher
“I had recently been promoted to a management position,
with more responsibility and a bigger team and needed to quickly gain some new
skills and some confidence, as I was feeling rather daunted and realised I
needed time management, influencing, decision making and negotiation skills to
match my new responsibilities. Madeleine gave me some strategies and the
support to implement them effectively, with good insight about my leadership
strengths and how to develop myself.
I now feel skilled at dealing with difficult situations in a busy environment
and achieve more in less time. I also enjoy my social life more because
I'm in control at work. It was really helpful to have private coaching because
I could be totally open and honest and Madeleine tailored the programme to my
needs.” Anne Woods, Cambridge
“I realised that working in the legal profession requires more than just
knowledge. I wanted to make sure that I developed confidence and skill at
communicating with colleagues and clients, to give me the best possible chance
of progressing in my career. Madeleine shared with me some powerful influencing
techniques that have helped me deal with different personalities, difficult
situations and get the best out of myself and others. Now I feel better
equipped to create great working relationships with colleagues and clients and
I enjoy my work even more.” Andy Carr, Lawyer, Cambridge
"I wanted to leave my job as I felt my career was going nowhere. Madeleine helped me take back control. First we clarified what I really wanted to do. Then, we worked on strategies to build confidence, unlock my creativity and develop leadership and
communication skills. Now I've got a great new job and I honestly believe I
wouldn't have done it half so well without my Life Coach.'"
Joan Herbert, PhD, Business Development Manager, Cambridge
"I consider myself to be a successful, focused person and resourceful person. I still found I need coaching to achieve my goals. The coaching has helped me to work more
efficiently with other colleagues, manage my time better, deal with difficult
situations confidently, understand others better and deal with stress. The
weekly sessions have helped me to achieve my potential. I would have no
hesitation in recommending Madeleine’s services.
Rebecca Wooderson, Cambridge.
"When I joined my previous company back in 2010 I was a classic introvert programmer with a garnish of lacking confidence. I felt it wasn't my place to say certain things or nerves just got the best of me and prevented me from putting my points across. I didn't know this at the time, I just thought that this was just me and that was that, but after working with Madeleine she very quickly started breaking down the barriers that prevented me from stepping up to the plate, and regularly challenged me to practice my skills. The benefits of this were immense. I was able to build genuinely strong relationships with my clients, and internally I gained the respect of my colleagues. I went from Junior Programmer to acting Lead Developer in a very short period of time, and the company benefited from my combination of technical and interpersonal skills. Madeleine gets a high level of recommendation from me, and my thanks for her time developing what I now believe to be my most valuable skill, win-win communication." Luke Stagg, Cambridnge
"Working with Madeleine has been a truly incredible life changing experience. Madeleine was knowledgeable and with her coaching and support I have been able to transform all aspects of my life within a short space of time. I have gained the
confidence to embark on new business ventures. I look forward to working with
Madeleine in the future." Carla Golding, HR Manager, London
"I highly recommend Madeleine, she has given me my life back! Madeleine has an incredible knack of helping you to get to the issues you need to deal with and then provides fantastic tools to enable you to deal with everything and move on.
I have spent 6 weeks with Madeleine and it is the best value
of both time and money that I have ever spent, so much so that I am now looking
forward to using her again in a professional context. You won't be disappointed if you choose to work with this fantastic lady!" Emma Furness, Cambridgeshire
“Thanks for sending these, I always like reading your emails – they aren’t like most newsletters. This one particularly resonates at the moment – a couple of weeks ago I found out that my (now ex) partner had been cheating on me for the last year and a half. Thanks to the mental skills that you taught me in our coaching sessions before, I’ve been able to handle the situation with a lot more grace and positivity than I would previously have been able to – it has been a learning experience and a chance to positively change my life to suit me better, rather than being focused solely on the negative emotions. Still very tough of course, but on balance I have been smiling and laughing far more than I have been crying! Just wanted to say a huge thanks to you for being who you are – for caring so much about people, for putting so much time and energy into improving your own skills so that you can share them with others. You are a really beautiful person and you make the world a more positive place. Thanks Madeleine!” Annette Bury
“Madeleine has a holistic approach to coaching in that she offers life and business coaching. This was a particularly helpful combination for me, who needed to deal with and sort out both areas of my life simultaneously – although I didn’t realise it when I started my sessions.Due to her multi-disciplined approach, Madeleine has a better insight into people’s issues and how to help them deal with them. I chose Madeleine as she was recommended to me by another business contact.
At the time I was seeking help to prepare myself for non-executive
directorship interviews – something new to me and which I did not feel very confident
After the first session with Madeleine, I decided to continue as she covered a lot of issues and I realised that she could help me understand myself better and help me to improve my skills in different areas. I knew these would be useful to me in my personal and business life. When working with Madeleine I most enjoyed and benefitted from her objective perspective on issues and her never ending support.” Trina Hill, Cambridgeshire
"I had genuinely convinced myself that I'd prefer a slow and painful death over standing up in public and giving a speech or presentation.
Needless to say, I managed to avoid the situation at all costs.
Madeleine has transformed my life by giving me the personal tools and
confidence to present myself. I've been told that I now need to learn when to
stop. I can honestly give my highest recommendation of Madeleine's coaching and self-confidence building." Pat Spillane, Business Owner, Flying Pixel
“I’ve always want to improve my presentation skills. I must confess I was sceptical about working with a coach and unsure how it would benefit me. However, I found your approach relaxing, fun and gradually over the weeks my confidence and skill grew.
Instead of dreading standing up in front of a room full of people, I came to
look forward to it. I’ve receive congratulations on my interesting and funny
speeches. I cannot thank you enough for all your help. I would not hesitate to
recommend you to anyone looking for help with their presentation skills or for
that matter, looking for an excellent Life Coach. Graham Abbey, Managing
Director, Factotum Ltd., Newmarket
"I worked with Madeleine within the Accountability Club with amazing end results. It's amazing what you don't know or do, until you are faced with the questions, options and opportunities that Madeleine with her vast knowledge put before you. She pushed, pulled and tugged at every aspect of my business finding out what could be changed, tweaked, improved and even 'DUMPED' to focus me fully on creating a successful balance in my business and personal life. With Madeleine and the Accountability Club I have improved my strategies in Marketing, lead generation, sales, time management, team management, organisation, cashflow and 'success zone' planning... In a word Madeleine and the Accountability Club are 'AWESOME'. If you have the opportunity to work with Madeleine, JUST DO IT, it'll be one of the best decisions you ever make." Paul Peek, Business Owner
"The great thing for me was that all the questions I was looking to Madeleine to answer were indeed answered – the even greater thing was the realization that all the answers were within me and Madeleine’s ‘just’ helped me look for them at the right place.
After only a few sessions I felt much more confident, happy with whom I was and
where I was heading and more importantly far more resourceful than ever before
in my life.
I especially appreciated the fact, that not only did Madeleine listen to my concerns but more importantly gave me the tools to deal with them without having a mini-breakdown several times a day! I found especially powerful the communication model which helped me understand certain experiences in my past which I didn't know what to make out of and caused me a lot of heartache. Learning about different types of
personality characteristics and understanding what mine was has given me the
confidence to deal with people and situations I would have previously dreaded.
I am at a point in my life when I'm facing the most uncertainty than ever before (about to be made redundant and just came out of a relationship) which for many people would be a very stressful time but thanks to Madeleine I am confident about myself, my skills and abilities. Madeleine's personality test has also highlighted areas for
improvement and I am very excited about working on those.
All in all this has been the best investment I've ever made - an investment in myself which I know is paying off already!"
Yvona Brandstatterova, Cambridge
“Following the trauma of being made redundant Madeleine helped me see that I was capable and resourceful when I had just experienced criticism and challenge . Not only that she gave me some simple tools and techniques to give me confidence in stressful situations. Although initially sceptical about coaching via Skype I thought it was a great experience and would highly recommend it. Thanks to Madeleine's techniques I am about to embark on a new job.” Ann Hunter, Senior Manager
“Having been out of the workplace for ten years whilst bringing up my daughter, I was struggling with the prospect of a new career. The coaching I have received from Madeleine has given me more confidence as well as the direction and focus I needed. Madeleine has lots of good advice and strategies on how to communicate better with people whether in the workplace or in personal relationships.”
Sally Overton, Cambridgeshire
"Over the sessions I had with Madeleine I learnt a lot about myself through her personality quiz and a lot about how to manage the challenges I was facing at work.
She was very patient and helped me make a big career decision.
Madeleine is warm, caring and a great listener. I couldn't have made my
decision without her!" Jo Brewin, Teacher, Cambridge
“As a Life Coach, Madeleine is vastly experienced, insightful and has a knack of knowing how to get you to achieve your goals. As a trainer she has a wonderful laid back yet commanding style that ensures thorough participation from all delegates. Happy to recommend Madeleine both personally and professionally.” Dan Kelly, Norfolk
“Madeleine, thank you for the Confidence for Women at Work workshop you delivered for our Cambridge University WISETI scheme which supports women in Science, Technology and
Engineering. You quickly got the delegates engaged in lively discussion and problem solving. You answered their burning questions and helped them understand the key obstacles to building confidence and how they could overcome them. The delegates went away certain of what steps they would take next to improve their professional confidence and career prospects.” Sarah Dickinson, WISETI, Cambridge University
“I am writing to thank you for the helpful sessions that we have had over the past few months, and for your incisive and professional approach to business and life coaching. I would not have been able to meet the challenges of a sole practitioner during this time of constant change. I really feel there is hope for women and men
entrepreneurs with people of your calibre out there ready to assist them in
meeting the challenges of an ever bullish market place.” Aisha Khalaf, Solicitor
“I have enjoyed working with Madeleine – she has provided focus, ideas, structure and achievable action plans to help with my business progression.
Going from corporate life to running my own business was difficult. Helping me
to overcome the obstacles blocking my thought processes, meant I achieved
significant progress in a relatively short period of time, rather than
procrastinating and getting bogged down with trivia.
Madeleine has provided a number of great ideas to enhance my business plan,
drawing on her knowledge and experience. I have also learnt some valuable tips
to enhance my business tool kit through the NLP techniques she uses.
One of the most powerful lessons learnt, is how to deal with difficult people –
an invaluable seminar run by Madeleine. This was thought provoking, structured
Working with Madeleine will enhance your business and give you more confidence
to deal with life!” Aegean Thomson, Business Owner and Events Coordinator,
“Thanks to Madeleine’s coaching over a number of weeks I have more understanding of the value of my services and why I am “worthy” of the fees I charge. Keeping her techniques in mind during conversations regarding my pricing, has empowered me to charge correctly, resulting in almost doubling my predicted income this month.
Thank you, Madeleine (from myself AND the bank balance).” B. Dear, Business owner
"Talking to Madeleine was a refreshing experience, her ability to make me think outside the box was excellent. I am a successful business owner but I needed more tools to help me earn the income I really wanted from my business. I realised how to make more money out of my experience, knowledge and qualifications in less time. After the session with her, I had clarity and focus of where I wanted to be and an action plan of how I was going to get there.
The penny dropped and all the pieces of the jigsaw fit. Thanks a million."
Satvinder Sokhi, Business Owner
"Working with Madeleine has given me so much more than I could ever have imagined when I committed to the coaching process. She guides, mentors, encourages, motivates, teaches and inspires. She has shown me new ways to strengthen my
marketing messages and come up with countless new ideas to develop my business.
Looking at what I was doing through someone else’s eyes and with her creative
expertise, has put a different spin and focus on where I expend my energies. I
am reaping tremendous benefits. I have more clarity, focus and direction. Her
ideas library knows no bounds. Madeleine imparts all this with great wisdom,
coupled with humour; it’s an enjoyable process and quite addictive!
