Heather provided leadership coaching to me over a number of months, during a period of significant professional and personal change. I found it very easy to build a rapport with Heather because of her natural warmth and empathy. She provided constructive challenge and encouraged self-reflection, whilst maintaining a positive and professional environment. I always left my coaching sessions feeling energised and looking forward to the next one.

Heather coached me when I was stepping into a new and challenging role as Chief Learning Officer of an American Software House. She rapidly built a trusting and friendly relationship with me, putting me at ease yet challenging me when my thinking and beliefs didn’t support the outcomes I had set for myself. Heather is a consummate coach, with exquisite language skills and had the ability to fully support me whilst at the same time challenging me and pushing me on to achieve more than I thought possible. I am eternally grateful to her for her help, support and insights. I fully recommend Heather as a coach; take her on and you will surprise yourself at what is possible.

Heather's coaching is like a breath of fresh air!  Professional, practical and always insightful - she has helped me see myself more clearly in a world of ambiguity and change, and supported me in developing a range of impactful actions that work for me.  I would highly recommend her approach and I really enjoy working with Heather.
