"Shirley is an intelligent and thoughtful professional coach. She's inquisitive and rather than taking a standard "top down" / standard questions approach, her methods are more engaging and collaborative. Shirley has a substantial corporate experience and is versed in that world's inherent politics, which provides her with the informed platform to engage constructively and develop a deep relationship with her clients. I recommend her!"
Shirley is an excellent coach, not least because she is one of the most insightful people I have met. Just through talking, she really gets to the root of an issue and has made some very helpful suggestions which I am now working through.
I needed a kickstart to help me move forward with a second business, which had been languishing for a little while. In a couple of sessions, Shirley helped me to find some focus and unblock some of the barriers which had been holding me back. She helped me work on improving my confidence as well as making some key business decisions. Her insightful approach was of great benefit and I would definitely recommend her if need help getting unstuck in your career or business
I had an insightful session with Shirley following my DISC profile. Shirley has provided me with the knowledge and information to discover who are my ideal clients for both my businesses so that I can focus specifically on those individuals that I enjoy working with and who would benefit the most from my own expertise. I would recommend going through this process with Shirley to really focus your mind on how to grow your business with the right people. Thank you Shirley.
Shirley's professional and caring approach was different to other coaches I had come across. She gave me the time to unravel what was going on for me. Her questions helped me discover what was really important for me to move forward on, which could have easily disappeared at the bottom of the to-do list.
With a clear plan of how it was possible for me to achieve my goal, without feeling overwhelmed, I felt passionate about my book rather than it was a chore.
Her suggestions were really helpful and so nice that I didn’t have to find all the answers for myself. Her insight into my patterns and behaviour were really helpful for me to understand why am behaving the way I am, and therefore what I can do to change it.
Her summary of the session was very useful for me to look back on to make sure I am still on track.
Thank you Shirley for helping me take the right next step.
I came away feeling more positive ‘about me’ and it did give me the confidence to search for other opportunities. It also reaffirmed what I thought I knew about myself to be true.
Overall, I found the process very helpful, supportive and insightful. When I first came to you, I knew partly what I didn’t want from a job/career, but was unclear on what I did want. The sessions provided a platform to discuss my thoughts, ideas and jumbled views in a supportive, professional and totally confidential environment. I was at ease from the first few minutes and knew I could talk in total confidence and trust.
You really have played a key role in me obtaining my new job. I knew my previous role was not the right one for me but you helped to identify what I required from a job to be fulfilled, what motivates me. Your assistance with interview preparation and technique was brilliant and allowed me to feel calm and confident for my interview. I am truly grateful for the support and encouragement you have given me.
