Sue MacGillivray BSc (Hons] Life Coaching Solutions

I work with my clients to explore options and find solutions to achieve happiness, fulfilment and purpose in work and at home.
Absolutely everyone is different and coaching sessions are tailored appropriately for you. I have hundreds of hours' coaching experience with private and corporate clients.
