I highly recommend Elizabeth for any aspect of coaching. Her openness and ability inspires confidence in the process. While goals are ever-present throughout the coaching process, they do not interfere with it. Her positive and friendly demeanor relaxes you immediately and allows for deep exploration.

I found working with Elizabeth incredibly helpful. With her guidance I was able to explore different paths towards reaching my goals. She has an exceptional skill at analyzing situations and providing insightful observations.
- Isabel, Senior Analyst
"When I first met Elizabeth, I was in a bit of quandary about where my career was going and my future. After a few sessions though I was able to focus more on directing my career into areas that I really wanted to go, which was working in fashion. Although I didn't change my job, which is what I originally intended to do, I was able to see that there were really good opportunities within my company that I could tap into. This renewed focus would not have been achieved without the help of Elizabeth. I am now working in the retail sector as a senior analyst specialized in fashion, a role that I am very happy with. "

Thank you for helping me to take those big steps forward; I can’t wait to see where they lead!
