Testimonials for Emma and Em-powering Change:

– Individual Coaching Clients

“My daughter and I have both had coaching sessions with Emma. Her gentle caring, professional and very motivating approach instantly made us feel at ease, and confident that we were in safe and capable hands.

My daughter had been having fears of being alone, that were affecting her confidence, her social life as well as not wanting to go to school not to mention how it was affecting our family life, as I was having to stay with her whilst she went to sleep, sometimes for up to 3 hours. Her father and I could never go out together. At its worst, she would not even go to the toilet by herself. 

We had taken her to see various specialists and tried many tactics. When we finally came to Emma, we were frankly at our wits end.  Emma worked with her over several weeks, using many individually tailored techniques.  The outcome has been nothing short of miraculous!

 She is a changed girl. Her confidence is so much better; she is no longer scared of being alone. She happily goes into school, goes to her friends’ houses without me (even for sleepovers) we have had a babysitter and gone out together! However, most importantly, she is so much happier. Which means we are too!

I am so pleased we found Emma and gave her life coaching a go. I can truly say it has changed our family life.

Therefore, if you are thinking of seeing Emma, stop thinking and do it, you will not regret it!”    –  A happy parent

“Emma is, without doubt, a talented coach whom effortlessly combines acute listening skills with an evident raft of expertise and experience.  Combining effective tools and techniques, she has helped me to navigate a particularly challenging and complex personal landscape, enabling me to rediscover my confidence and illuminate the next steps. This has been pivotal in closing past chapters and beginning the next.  Throughout this journey Emma’s combination of empathy, guidance and support have been invaluable.  A consummate professional who holds the critical blend of knowledge, experience and skill, her friendly approach is a breath of fresh air.  I cannot recommend her highly enough.”    John

“Emma is a fabulous coach! She’s very calm and insightful, and helps you to dig out those strategies that you really know, but can’t quite access when life gets in the way.
If you want any help in finding solutions to problems and focusing on what’s really important in life and business, then I’d thoroughly recommend getting in touch with Emma.”  Jo
 
 

“I would strongly recommend seeing Emma as she has had very positive impact on my life through stopping a really bad chewing gum habit as well as providing tools to overcome anxiety in everyday life. If you suffer from anxiety you will know what a relief it is when you feel you are given back the power to overcome it. Thank you Emma you were fab”  GA

“Thank you.  I do enjoy our sessions.  It’s like having a monumental spring clean of your brain.”  FB

– Change Management Clients

“Emma is a star.   She works extremely hard to get results and she delivers excellent pieces of work. I could trust her to win over very difficult stakeholders and resolve very complex problems every time.  She has a natural analytical mind which is essential to her success.  She is also very likeable and always works extremely well in a team environment and she always goes the extra mile.  I would rehire her in a flash”  Tony, Programme Manager

– Team Sessions

Our staff found Emma’s presentation, interesting and extremely useful. There was a real buzz after the session and the staff left with ideas and strategies that they could use immediately to help them deal with difficult situations. Emma as a presenter was incredibly professional and took time before hand to communicate with me and to make sure that her presentation suited the brief perfectly. I will be contacting Emma again for another session soon, as this will be one of the first sessions I book in for our next well-being day” Will, Vice Principal

“Emma ran workshops this year for 70 of my team in total – on managing stress and creating a good work-life balance.   The workshops were brilliant and the staff went away enthused and motivated. We still often discuss our ‘Stress Buckets’ and how to manage them so this has a lasting legacy on the team.
She created a brilliant way for us to discuss this with the team members. When Stress Buckets overflow we can broach this in a non-confrontational way and support the team member.  It bought about positive change to the organisation and was also a great team building exercise”   Clare, Programme Director

“I would like to say a big thank you to Emma for coming into our Pre School and giving us some great strategies of how we can help ourselves in stressful situations. What particularly interested us was getting a better understanding of the under lying factors to why you become over whelmed sometimes. Emma gave really helpful advice in how you can make small changes to reduce your ‘bucket’ of worries. I personally feel a lot calmer in myself and more positive in how I can face the daily juggle of being a Mum, Wife and Pre-School Manager. Thank you Emma”  Caroline, Pre-school Manager
