“I had an amazing coaching session with Jane. She supported me in having greater clarity of thought and gave me confidence in moving forward. She asked the right questions to lead me to very solid decisions. Jane’s style and method are very effective, helping me to focus on my goals. I look forward to our next conversation.”
Emma, Headteacher

“What a fantastic experience. I met with Jane because I wanted to explore how I was feeling about my job, my future career and how my home life fitted in with both of these things.  At the beginning of the meeting, we agreed the aims of the session.  Jane helped me to evaluate and prioritise what is really important to me as I enter the next stage of my professional life. She asked the right questions and gave me the space and guidance to focus my mind and arrive at my own answers. By the end of our time together I had a clear set of actions to help me to achieve my goals. I would highly recommend Jane to any professional, in any industry who needs clarity on what they really want from their career and needs a push in the right direction to achieve it.”
