Testimonials for Coaching & Time to Think
"I have highly valued having Rachel as a thinking partner for the past couple of years. In our scheduled sessions, she provides the space for me to explore my thoughts and feelings on whatever topic I choose to bring. Her attentive listening and presence support me to find new depths of understanding myself and my situation, from which I find clarity and a way forward. She is intuitive, accepting and empathic, which enables me to take my thinking beyond where I have gone before. Her approach is highly supportive, whilst also respectfully challenging assumptions and behaviour patterns as needed. I enjoy working with Rachel and would highly recommend her."
Sue Gammons, Coaching Director, GSK
"Rachel was my Coach when I was planning my transition from fulltime employment to a new lifestyle. The coaching helped me be clear on what mattered to me and what would give me a sense of worth and purpose. Rachel's coaching transformed my thinking about the transition, meaning I did not rush into new employment, I'm pleased to say I am very happy with where I am now."
Susan Graves, Project Delivery Professional, npower
"I greatly valued Rachel's time. Rachel’s ability to ask the right questions allows you to answer at your own pace after reflection and provides a platform, a safe environment where one can be open, honest, reflective and share what is on their heart. I found the time we had flew past, I was able to explore a few ’things’ that had been on my heart and once aired gave me greater clarity and the feeling that I could move forward in those areas. I would highly recommend anyone seeking space to think and express themselves to approach Rachel’s company. I can only see amazing outcomes from this process emerging for all those participating."
Gavin Fearey, Legal Counsel, Winstead PC
"Rachel’s process brought clarity at a critical time when thinking through a 2021 personal development plan to share with my law firm. Quite simply, there was space to think. Glimpsed ideas took shape quickly into a practical action plan. I wholeheartedly recommend setting aside space in a busy schedule for this."

"Working with Rachel over time, I've found that engaging with Rachel is always very easy, natural and intuitive, leading to a happy outcome time and again. Rachel is an excellent facilitator and listener, and as a result, her 'Time To Think' sessions are always very useful for me. In particular what I enjoy about her sessions is the way she's actively listening and encouraging, and that really helps to unstick the problems I'm struggling with before each session. Rachel is both 100% professional and ethical, so working with Rachel is a real pleasure. As a result I'm absolutely happy to recommend Rachel to everyone looking for a coach and facilitator, either for individual work or group work."
