Satisfied Client Stories
Val is a wonderful Career Coach and I am delighted to be able to make this recommendation on her behalf. I initially sought the help of a career coach as I had been feeling somewhat disillusioned by the career choices I had made; and following a web search decided to meet with Val for an introductory meeting. Val’s warm and personable manner immediately made me feel at ease and we planned a course of action for our sessions; which were not only fun and interesting, but also very goal oriented and intent on getting to the heart of the problems experienced ...
I would highly recommend Val as a life and career coach. After our first meeting, Val tailor-made a career and life review programme for me. During our sessions we went through my life goals, what I valued in life along with my skills set. With this programme, I was able to see more clearly what was really important to me and with guidance from Val took necessary steps to deciding to make a life changing career move. Without Val, I would never have made the change, embracing the fear but doing it anyway. Thank you!
I would highly recommend Val as an executive coach. Working with Val is a pleasure. Val helped me to evaluate my beliefs and values as well as helping me to face the future with a renewed confidence and purpose. It truly has been a life changing experience which has increased my self awareness and provided me with a platform to approach my career and life in a measured and balanced way. I found the whole process to be tremendously rewarding.
