The coaching sessions followed a logical journey, with Sheila’s incisive questioning prompting me to explore and review what I wanted to achieve and how I ‘did’ things providing valuable critique and approaches that I continue to build on. Sheila’s calm and reassuring coaching style and underlying knowledge made this a very positive experience and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to learn and develop.

Sheila has worked with our firm for a number of years as an executive coach. Through her professional support she has helped individuals manage the uncertainty of change during their early legal careers. We have seen impressive results, with individuals achieving re-engagement with their role and the organisation, increased productivity and greater capacity for addressing issues. Following coaching from Sheila people are clearer on their values, drivers and motivation and are prepared for transition to the next level.
Since seeing Sheila my confidence has grown in my role. Her incisive probing and helpful insights have helped me to develop a clearer understanding of my skills and strengths, and of the contribution I can make to my organisation. Her ability to challenge my thinking and responses with sensitivity, candour and humour has been a great help and has also helped me gain a greater understanding of the motivation of others. I believe that with heightened self-awareness I now play a more effective collegiate and leadership role. I am very grateful to Sheila for her help and expertise, which she gives so generously.
I was newly promoted to the Senior Civil Service and wanted to work with a coach on building my levels of confidence in my own ability and to understand how I could best make the transition into a key leadership role. Sheila was brilliant in helping me to reflect on my personal strengths and how I could build on these to make an impact in a new and challenging role. She coached me to understand the areas that I really needed to focus on and what was really important in terms of success. She challenged me to handle to difficult situations, running through different approaches and scenarios which I have continued to use and put into practice. She was always genuinely interested in what I was doing and how I was learning and growing in the role. I would highly recommend Sheila to others who are looking for a coach who will listen, work with you on the help you need and encourage you to believe in your own potential. In return for their investment, the DWP now has a leader who is confident in their own ability and a leader who is using this to shape the direction of travel in a major transformation programme.
