I am delighted to write a recommendation for Jan. We have been working together for over 12 months and with Jan’s excellent coaching ability and her very empathetic approach, I have had an amazing journey and results. Jan listens intently and is considered in response, constantly helping you think about certain subjects when my natural style would be reactive. This has made a significant difference to how I’ve adapted and ultimately changed in the past 12 months. I have learnt a great deal as Jan shares much both in terms of reading, own knowledge and others approaches. It’s been insightful looking inwards at myself and appreciating the various tools and tactics I can use in certain situations. Jan is very easy to connect and engage with so I have looked forward to our coaching sessions and know we’ll stay in touch through the relationship we have formed. I highly recommend Jan to support both individuals and organisations as they seek to be the very best that they can be. Alison Davies.
As my coach supervisor, Jan is not only supportive and appropriately challenging, she also has the knack of asking just the right question to stop me in my tracks and make me think. She is particularly skilled at feeding back what she is noticing in our work, which is so helpful as I continue to reflect after our session is finished. Jan is very knowledgeable, and is generous in offering to share and recommend readings relevant to our work together. These have been interesting and helpful in informing my thinking and coaching practice. I experience all aspects of Jan’s coach supervision – supportive holding, provision of continuing professional development, and quality assurance of my work as a coach – to be underpinned by professionalism, integrity, and a non-judgemental way of being. I learn lots from our sessions, and highly recommend Jan. Margaret, coaching psychologist and professional trainer
Jan has been my coaching supervisor for the last 5 - 6 years. I really look forward to the time we have together. It is precious time for me to think about my coaching practice, what is working well and what I want to do to continue to grow and develop. What I love about working with Jan is that she always provides a safe space for me to think things through and her questions are insightful. She is happy to share her experience and knowledge if that is what I am looking for, but knows when to just let me work things through myself too. I can highly recommend Jan as a coaching supervisor for anyone who is looking for one and indeed have done so previously. Chrissie Martindale MBPs - Director Power of One Assessments Ltd
Having worked with numerous coaches in the past this is the first time I have felt compelled to write a testimonial which speaks volumes about Jan's ability and impact as a coach. Jan's thoughtful questioning alongside relevant support material enabled me to determine my own actions and quickly resolve work challenges and in turn personally develop. Working with Jan you benefit from a coach that obviously keeps her own personal development up to date and is in touch with current and relevant material and theories, occasionally drawing on these insights when appropriate. John Hicks, A.C.I.B.
I have found Jan to be a very knowledgeable and skilled coach, who is easy to work with. I felt instantly comfortable in her presence seeing a shift in my thinking at the end of our first session! Jan has a number of theories she draws on naturally within the sessions which help to extended your thinking. I would recommend Jan wholeheartedly; her professional style and approach enabled me to consider myself and the needs of the organisation, enabling me to find solutions to knotty strategic issues.
