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!

I am the senior managing partner in a large professional practice. I have had several sessions of coaching with Jeanette to help me address a career dilemma. I found the process extremely helpful, and it allowed me to plan a way forward which I have in fact now implemented to produce the desired outcome.

I found Jeanette to be approachable, with good listening skills and to be very insightful. She was easily able to establish a comfortable working relationship. She was able to reflect things back to me in a way which was enlightening and allowed me to overcome some blocks in my thought processes. She is comfortable with silence and is supportive and helpful without being over directive.

All my contacts with her have been well managed. She was clear in setting up the initial contract and ensured I had clear and appropriate expectations. I was in particular very confident with her approach to confidentiality and boundaries.  I was treated throughout with respect and courtesy, and my experience suggests that she works to the highest professional standards. 

 I would have no hesitation in recommending her as a coach.

PC, Managing Partner

I was lucky enough to have 6 Coaching Sessions with Jeanette last year having been promoted to a new position which was far removed to the one I held before, the pace and responsibility I held were far greater and the role completely different. I was finding it difficult to be effective – through time management and communication and struggled with switching off. Jeanette had a very calming manner, was a fantastic listener and I left after each session feeling immediately better and clearer about what I needed to do. Jeanette did this without 'telling' me anything – through her observations and questioning I was able to find my own solutions. My secondment came to an end but the things I learnt with Jeanette have remained with me and I’m putting them to good use in my current role – everything was totally transferrable and I’m now a big advocate for practising Mindfulness. I am far more effective as individual – calmer, take a more considered approach and understand my own though processes and drivers better, I’m very grateful for the opportunity to have had coaching from Jeanette and would recommend her highly.

“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.”

“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!”

Jeanette has a series of vital key skills as a coach. A good listener with a talent for identifying common threads and key information in what I as the client say and reflecting back tc help see a situation in a different perspective. Jeanette instantly creates a sense of safety and trust enabling a constructive session in which openness and honesty is possible enabling the foundational issues in any situation to be understood, Jeanette combines this listening and reflective style with a comprehensive suite of tools to help understand issues. Tools such as the drivers questionnaire, use of breathing exercises, advice on meditation have all been used to good effect and impact how I work today.  I would have no hesitation in recommending her as an executive coach.

- Tim R, Director of ESG

I booked a short series of coaching sessions with Jeanette as I had a perception of reduced performance levels at work. I seemed to be working ever harder but felt I was achieving less. However, senior management and colleagues had not observed any lack of outcomes. I was also feeling pretty depressed and losing hope. Working with Jeanette was an enlightening experience. During the sessions it became apparent to us that I had been both seriously overworking and also overcommitting outside of work for a number of years. This had resulted in my expression of burnout symptoms and is was this that was leading to depression, loss of hope and the perception of reduced performance. We worked together to identify a path to recovery from burnout including inevitable lifestyle changes which I have put in place to positive effect. I believe that implementing these changes has been literally lifesaving.

“I came to coaching to help me to bring a workplace development programme to life. Jeanette had visibility of the course toolkit, which supported the 3 modules of my programme, and she provided me with an opportunity to test the tools in a safe environment, gaining insights into ways of using these effectively. I also had time to reflect on what worked and why. This has been really beneficial for me both personally and in the workplace. Making time to talk to Jeanette gave me a chance to reflect on my work and consider ways of approaching things – having a coach is like having a conversation with myself but the quality of the questions is much better !!”

- Maggie D

“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

“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 helpedme 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.
