What Michelle's clients have experienced...

The leadership coaching with Michelle has been fantastic and well beyond what I'd hoped to achieve.  She provided a really supportive and encouraging environment where I was able to reflect and consciously learn new skills.  I have also experienced positive changes at an unconscious level that feel natural and easy.  I would definitely work with Michelle again.  Kendra

After a long time working as a project manager I was moving into directly managing staff and Michelle’s coaching gave me the techniques and confidence to do so.  I would definitely recommend individual coaching with Michelle as the best professional development I have done. Cameron

The coaching made me challenge preconceptions, and often misconceptions, about myself that I have long held to be true. Michelle has a talent for reflection and I often found that through the coaching process that I could more clearly view and define my goals as well as identify the steps I would need to achieve them.  Michelle's easy and friendly manner soon established a relationship of trust and good will. I believe that this was essential in getting many of the root issues that I needed to re-examine and deal with. Though at the outset I was a little dubious about the whole process I have found the experience to be valuable on both a professional and personal level.  M Woodman.

Michelle is fantastic to work with. She is very insightful and leads you systematically through ideas and feelings that you didn’t even know you had!  I value the work Michelle has done with me and consider that she has helped me take the first step on a new and exciting journey. Kirsten

Michelle's coaching increased my self-awareness and helped me to identify my strengths and areas I needed to work on.  I was encouraged to push outside my comfort zone and with each challenge I undertook my confidence in my ability to be able to handle the difficult situations grew.  My coaching experiences with Michelle equipped me with life and work  skills and more importantly left me feeling  empowered.  Brenda - Quality & Training Team Leader

After coaching with Michelle I quickly cleared the past doubt and had both confidence and excitement about taking on the challenge.  The difference I've created with my team since then has been phenomenal! SB, Team Manager


I had begun working with Michelle as I was starting a new job which involved a lot of change management, I wanted to approach this new challenge with a positive and fearless attitude which meant reframing some past experiences that had impacted on my confidence over the years .  I have found that through Michelle’s coaching I have the confidence to make change, a renewed focus and a clear path towards my future goals. S Brown, Direct Operations Team Manager
