"I came to coaching to achieve some clarity and confidence in marketing my business to the right clients. I felt that I achieved something much more - a better understanding of what my business has to offer my clients.
"Lucy is a great coach who can see through to the heart of a problem or issues that you are finding hard to resolve. As a freelancer it is really important to have a coach that not only understands your challenges but is also rooting for you!
"Being able to openly talk through my struggles and worries has made me stand back and realise that it will be tough, results won’t be immediate and it’s ok not to be too hard on myself. As a result, I’m able to step back and be happy with what I have achieved and what I do already have.
"I appreciated talking to someone in a similar situation. New business, mum to a toddler. That meant there was a lot of synergy before we even got started. And she understood my needs brilliantly! Lucy knows the pressures of leaving a secure job, starting up your own business and having a small child at home. That made a big difference to me.
"Initially, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I came to view it as a time to be able to talk my thoughts through with a fellow business owner, but at the same time be held accountable.
"Having Lucy as a professional sounding board was great. It can be lonely and tough making decisions on your own, but having her enabled me to get them out of my head into breathe life into them. It’s a good way to really test your ideas before they become reality.
"The coaching has helped me to re-define a better home-business-life balance. Just the idea of booking in ‘me time’ just like a client booking in a consultation was a revelation for me. I’ll admit I’m still not brilliant (but better than before we met), but the concept has really stuck with me!
"I appreciated Lucy's friendly laid back style with the right nudges and positivity when I met agreed goals or unexpected ones.
"She has been an inspiration to me. Hearing about how her business is thriving has made me feel good about what I’m doing. She is a naturally a positive person and seeing her blog posts, helps me to tap into that positivity and refrain from worrying too much about things."
"Lucy helped me to gain real insight and clarity on my business direction which has enabled me to get to the position I am in today. I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a friendly professional accountability business coach."
