Testimonials

 “Vanessa’s approach has helped me put sustainable changes in place in my everyday work to reduce the effect the daily grind was having on my ability to do my job.  She uses compassion and humour in equal measure and I end each session feeling I have made progress. She directs me to resources which help me understand how and why we find ourselves feeling the strain and how simple changes can be used to counterbalance this.  Quite simply the most useful time I have ever spent on my education or personal development.”

 

Rachel, Consultant Ophthalmologist

“This experience has been transformational, even better than I hoped for.”

 

Linda, GP

“Vanessa saw right into the core of me, what I can be and called me to be that and then some. I am now connected to my life purpose, living the dream, playing large, have stepped into my power and have the courage to speak the truth. I have blossomed as a leader.”

 

Marion Thomas, Transformation Director

“I have worked with other coaches before but none like Vanessa who gets to the core of an individual and brings out the best. Without you even realising what your best is. Are you brave enough to get under the skin? It is tiring work but worth it. I wish I would have met her sooner.” 

 

Louise Wade, Transformation Manager

“We all have crossroads in our personal life and they can seem unfathomable. As a business owner those crossroads come even more frequently and can seem insurmountable in terms of decision making. Vanessa kickstarts your thinking, she challenges beautifully and gets you thinking in a differently way and ultimately gives you a toolkit to help you navigate not only this crossroads but the next and the next. Cannot recommend her highly enough to anyone who feels stuck and simply wants to get on, get back on track or wants a new track.”

Jayne Greaves, Marketing Director

“Vanessa didn't buy into my internal story, she guided me and showed me how to overcome what I’d been listening to for so long that was holding me back.”

 

Karen Davidson, Business Owner

 


“Vanessa coached me following redundancy from a Managing Director’s position within the publishing industry. She helped me identify and prioritise my core business and home values, re-energise and give me belief in myself again as well as challenging some of many of my thought processes. Vanessa has made the whole process incredibly good fun, friendly and empowering!”

 

Darren Gillgrass, Managing Director

 


“Vanessa is very energetic, generous, creative and extremely resourceful. Working with her I’ve felt supported and encouraged.  She has helped me align with what is truly important to me, she has been a mirror and a role model. She walks the talk! I have had lots of insights with her and great guidance in creating my new business, as well as lots of laughter. I definitely recommend her!” 

 

Sonia Ortiz, Business Owner

 


“Vanessa doesn't let you get away from yourself. So often in coaching we look at what we need to do and avoid ourselves a little, at least that's a familiar pattern with me. Coaching with Vanessa means getting to know your self and it all starts there.” 

 

Louise Dudley, Business Owner

 


"Vanessa has a beautiful way of pulling information out.....even the things you aren't sure you can or want to see. She is incredibly gentle, but encourages you to move forward....to see the possibility.  She has an amazing gift for helping you see your own light. And not just seeing it but locating it within your self  so that you can access it at any time. Very powerful and highly recommended.”

 

Claire Lopez, Teacher

 


“Vanessa coached me through what was proving to be a painful transition. There is nowhere to hide, I am challenged and I'm also supported. This is an enduring support that pushes me forward when the easiest choice would be to go to bed and hide. It is playful and spiritual, also. There is no doubt that I've got myself to a better state of being with Vanessa's skilful and powerful intervention.

 

Joe Standerline, Actor & Coach


“I’m now about to start a 6 week fitness challenge where I’ve organised 6 other fitness instructors to deliver 6 weeks of classes to raise money for the Patrick Wild research centre. I’ve also just had my first yoga anatomy article accepted for publication. Thank you!” 

 

Janet Philip

 


“Vanessa has a natural gift for connecting with people and seeing right to the core of what they are dealing with. Working with Vanessa has had a significant and positive influence on both my professional and personal life.” 

 

Denise Chilton, Executive Coach

 


“I reached out to Vanessa when I hit a particularly sticky spot – THE STICKY SPOT – the big one, that’s been holding me back from stepping into the full expression of my work – and my life, for years. Working with Vanessa was like having the shades pulled up on my life so the light could flood in – and it’s stayed in. Working with her was like playing with colour and light, making new pictures out of old ones, seeing the same diamond that I see in myself – but approaching it from a completely new angle. I recommend her without reservation.”
