What Clients Say

I would not hesitate to recommend Vanessa for career coaching.  I was at a stage where I was finding applying for and interviewing for jobs quite difficult and needed to break a cycle of self-doubt and anxiety.  Vanessa is enormously encouraging. Her calm and friendly demeanour put you at ease and her advice is excellent.  I had an interview that I was worried about and I spent a couple of hours with Vanessa going through different aspects of the process and talking about my expectations and giving me some practical help and tips for the day.   I felt enormously confident on the day and can attest that coaching with Vanessa really helped me.

Vanessa came highly recommended and achieved more than I thought possible. I was really struggling to change career, having given up teaching after twelve years. Vanessa was very clear about what I could achieve and how she could help me. She guided me through creating a plan and strategies to make it work; this included identifying areas that I needed to focus on as well as the transferable skills I already had. Having regular meetings and ‘homework’ meant that I maintained the motivation to keep going. The confidence she gave me meant that I was able to grab an opportunity that has given my career a whole new direction and has made me happier than I’ve been in years. My family have commented on my increased confidence and this is entirely down to Vanessa’s belief and confidence in me. She once said to me that she isn’t a therapist; she’s not, she is very much more than that.
