Start-Up Founder, London  “I have been coached by Sian whilst transitioning from a corporate to a start-up mindset. As many of us are, I am juggling a number of issues and can struggle to break them down into clear problems to solve. Sian is excellent at just letting me talk my problem through, helping me distil it down into some key points and then finding a path through it. Whilst encouraging me to commit to action dates, which removes any chance of procrastination. Cannot recommend her highly enough.”

Catering Director, London  “I highly recommend Sian. I was struggling to make real progress with different aspects of daily life – an inability to prioritise or to see the bigger picture. Sian provided a rational viewpoint, delving deeper into specific concerns to help me find logical solutions for myself. Identifying areas for development, establishing strengths and weaknesses, creating a plan of attack, goal-setting and reviewing actions were all part of the process. For me this has led to a clearer vision and defining of my short and long-term goals. Sian is personable, encouraging and offers a trusting environment in which to talk openly.”

Research Professional, Cardiff  “I started coaching sessions with Siân at a time when I was juggling a heavy and increasingly overwhelming workload. I had been back at work for a year after a period of severe depression. I met with Siân once a week for an hour over a period of eight weeks. Siân is an attentive listener and she also brings great personal congruence to conversations. As the weeks went on, I found I was able to be more decisive and was better able to communicate my intentions and actions. I found I was able to be more ambitious and took greater prepared risks. I am now clearer (with myself and others) about what I am aiming to achieve at work and about how that fits with the goals of the organisation. I have been successful in making a case for promotion. Put simply, the coaching sessions with Siân have been invaluable.”

Digital Programme Director, Melbourne  “I was referred to Sian to help me resolve a difficult situation I was facing.  It took just two sessions for me to see the value. In that time, I observed Sian was, in a friendly and almost imperceptible way, getting me to logically talk through the scenario I was in. She asked the right prompting questions and completely understood the business and personal elements I talked through. I found Sian’s past work experience meant she understood the situation as if she’d seen it first hand herself. But the key thing was that she didn’t tell me what to do or push me to make a decision – she simply helped me to work it out for myself.”

Professional Poker Player, London “I had been contemplating a career change for a while after playing poker for a living. I wanted to do something more meaningful and explore my real purpose in life. I was having a lot of ideas but not getting any clarity to what to do. I took Sian’s coaching and straight away felt comfortable. I found her to be an empathetic listener and you can sense she genuinely wants the best for you. This allowed me to open up and through focused questioning, she was able to make me aware of my true passions. What was best that she gave me concrete action plans to explore my purpose. I would highly recommend Sian and would definitely take her coaching again if I need help again. Thank you Sian, it was a pleasure working with you.”

Junior Case Handler, Stockport   ”I had already quit my job and was struggling to find something more meaningful to pursue when I came across Sian on a coaching website. I had gone as far as I could in my current role, an entry-level position, and felt that I was ready for newer and better things. Sian was very empathetic, a great listener and made me feel comfortable to open up and discuss things in detail and made suggestions that I would have never thought of myself. When I landed a face-to-face interview with a prestigious financial services firm, Sian helped me through lots of competency based interview questions. These gave me great confidence in the interview, and I got the job offer just a few hours after my interview! Thank you for all your help and time, Sian!”

Insurance Professional, London  “Having worked in the insurance industry for over 15 years, I felt that my current role had stagnated and I had become frustrated with internal software systems adding to my ever increasing workload. I had reached a stage in my life where I needed to make a change, yet I was uncertain on how to go about achieving this change. Sian carefully listened to the issues and was able to make constructive suggestions that I had never considered. Instead of thinking I had gone down a cul-de-sac, suddenly different pathways opened up. Having discussed my “values”, I was able to rationalise my strengths and focus on the correct direction to head. A very positive and worthwhile experience.”
