Kind Words from Clients
I am lucky enough to work with the most amazing clients. Here you will find their reflections on work with me and how it had an impact on their lives.
Michelle is incredibly trust-worthy, respectful and supportive. She listened VERY carefully and gave me guidance to find ways to grow that worked for me. There was a lot of learning that took place during my coaching sessions, even though I felt like I was coming into it all from a conscious place. The exercises Michelle and I worked through allowed me to recognise things that I may not have otherwise. They also helped me to begin to heal in certain areas.
I didn’t think that I had time in my schedule for this, but what has happened is that I now feel like I have more time (for everything) than I did before. It’s called priorities! It’s called self-compassion. Suddenly, there’s this time for me to do things for myself.
Michelle did a damn good job of making me feel as though I could speak openly, without fear of judgement, knowing that I would receive support and guidance. In order to make this experience as worthwhile as possible, one does need to let go and open up. That could happen in Michelle’s company. She is a gem.
I feel like a different person from when I started my coaching series with Michelle. I am so much more aware of the pattern of my thoughts and how they can impact my feelings and actions. I feel so empowered knowing that I CAN have control over this. I can actually choose my thinking and change my feelings! I am far kinder and more compassionate towards myself now.
Michelle is such a wonderful listener and just so easy to talk to and because of this I felt that I could be upfront and honest about my thoughts, feelings towards teaching. I really felt like I was at the end of my tether with teaching before our coaching series. Just utterly exhausted and over it, but so frustrated because there was so much I loved about the profession and felt I was meant to stay in it but couldn’t cope with the expense to my mental and physical health and relationships.
By the end of our coaching series, I feel like I had regained control and can see how to strike that ‘balance’. Being a teacher herself, she could relate and really empathise with how I was feeling but more importantly, suggest some incredibly helpful strategies which I will continue to use. The best thing is that everything I’ve learnt so far doesn’t just apply to teaching… I have been able to apply it in all areas of my life and can feel myself becoming more present, energised and connected to others. I will be highly recommending you to all of my teaching friends
Michelle was so supportive and encouraging throughout the entire process. I just felt so at ease talking to her about anything and I also appreciated her challenging me to think through things myself (out loud) and guiding me with gentle suggestions, useful tools or questions to get me to think more deeply / widely about problems – encouraging me to think of solutions or ‘next steps’ myself, making me feeling capable and confident in myself 🙂
I would definitely recommend anyone on the fence to jump in with both feet for a coaching series with Michelle. She can help you work through those sticky points that are holding you back. Michelle has an admirable ability to decipher jumbled thoughts and frustrations! I have a new awareness for default thought patterns that reflected negatively on myself. I also loved that each session, we created actions together that I was in charge of, which guided me to solve my challenges.
Michelle went above and beyond!
Chartered Accountant / Financial Controller
Michelle helped me learn strategies to understand how my mindset was impacting my daily life and holding me back from really experiencing all the parts of my life I had so desired. I was able to create a manageable morning routine which set me up for success throughout the day.
Michelle was supportive and held me accountable to my commitment which ultimately helped me experience the growth I did.
