What my clients say:

I would highly recommend coaching. I had no idea what to expect, but this has given me the tools to understand how to communicate with people with different learning/communication styles so that I can get better outcomes at work. It has allowed me to move projects on which had previously become stuck, and I’ve identified new ways to improve work processes and make the job more efficient. So even though I invested more time, it was very worthwhile.

Business Partner

Yvonne was very friendly, approachable and calm – she created a very easy and comfortable atmosphere for us to discuss the areas I wanted to be coached on and provided some very useful guidance which has allowed me to develop and improve.


I found Yvonne very helpful and as a new leader she has helped me to gain in confidence. I would highly recommend these sessions

Head of Finance

She takes time to understand your goal and aspirations, both personally and professionally, dedicated to your success and finding new ways to support you.

She has unique insight and tremendous ability to connect with people inspiring and nurturing them to move in a positive direction.

Director, NHS

I had various bottlenecks with my work. Yvonne has helped me to work out how best to communicate with the different types of people in order to address this. It has been very successful and has enabled me to work with others better and become more effective. This has been a great result especially when work pressures have been high during the pandemic.

Head of Quality, Somerset

I have been on several leadership courses before, one of which was 4 days long. I have learned far more in this one day course, than I have on all of the other courses put together.
