“I would like to say a big thank you to Jackie, who has been there showing her support in this unprecedented time of uncertainty, risk and loss. With Jackie’s help I was able to find a way to deal with the current situation and put a plan of action in regards to my professional career. She helped me outline and see what is important to me and how I can achieve my goals and create a plan of action. I was able to understand what triggers my actions and how to manage my reactions. There are many programs on leadership, motivations, personal development, which could be followed, listen, however being able to interact and talk to Jackie has had immense impact and experience, a great way to move forward and achieve lasting results.” KDD – HR professional West London

“Its early days with my work coaching with Jackie (3 sessions plus introduction) but based on this experience to date I would totally recommend. She has provided a time and space for calm reflection providing insightful reflections based on our conversations. She formulates useful and creative approaches and strategies that are helping me within my work in a busy and changing environment. I look forward to my sessions as her approach creates a sense of safety and support alongside supporting my personal and leadership development.” Mary O’Donell, Operations Manager NHS

“Often in coaching sessions, you can feel like the coach has an agenda for you to follow. Instead, Jackie came to our sessions with a uniquely open-mind – allowing space for the innovative thinking I needed to view my profession in an entirely different light. The head-space and creative revelations generated during our sessions eventually led to those ideas being published and a chain-reaction of career-changing events that sparked from there. I can’t thank Jackie enough for her ability to carefully listen and help co-create ideas and patterns of working that I use each and every day’ – Dave MacFarlane, Social Worker

“I have found my coaching sessions with Jackie to be incredibly helpful and thought-provoking. Jackie has challenged my thinking and encouraged me to consider new perspectives, but always does so in a very supportive and encouraging way. Coaching with Jackie always feels like a “safe space,” with all questions and challenges invited with genuine curiosity and without judgement. Jackie has supported me to become more mindful in my everyday life, and has also helped me to improve my resilience, both professionally and personally. I have found these coaching sessions to be an invaluable haven for reflection, and would recommend Jackie in an instant.” Charlotte Lee, Newly Qualified Social Worker, Children and Young People Disability Service, Achieving for Children

  “I have had the privilege of working with Jackie over the last year, and she has been a valuable asset to my business and my own development. As a business owner and without a large corporate framework and superiors, I had set my own development ‘ceiling’ for many years. Working with Jackie has been inspirational and has enabled me to break through this ‘ceiling’. She has encouraged me to keep focussed and challenged, and to push myself into areas I may otherwise have shied away from. Jackie is thoroughly professional and talented, and her skills and experience are vast and multi-faceted.” Sandra Wheatley, Director, Demographik
