Small business coaching

Deborah Toulson, Owner of Kip McGrath Salisbury, Wiltshire

“I am just a different business owner from two years ago when I first begun working with Lucy. I have really achieved so much more than I ever thought possible.My business has had it’s best growth period since I started 13 years ago! Her support and guidance has been the best.” Read more

Jackie*, Franchisee and Business Owner, Bexley

“The biggest impact from the coaching has been positive changes to my mindset, productivity – focusing on what’s most important, prioritising and delegating. An a boost in my confidence too!

Through the coaching I have opened my own centre and feel the whole process happened as part of working together. I simply handled it much better than I would have had the opportunity presented it self a few years ago.” Read more

Natalie Kyne-Dinsdale, Joint Owner at the Hackett-Kyne Academy of Irish Dancing, Kent

“Business Coaching has been a very positive journey for me. What I love most is that Lucy has helped me to look at the positive things in my business and how I can help it to grow while finding a good work-family-life balance.” Read more

Julie Davies, Owner of Julie Davies Flower Workshops, Faversham, Kent

“Lucy strikes the right balance between supporting me (and coming up with some fab ideas to move my business on) and set me more challenging issues to deal with.” Read more

Lucia Dello loio, Owner of The Analytical Bookkeeper, Faversham, Kent

“Coaching gave me confidence to tackle areas that I had no prior experience of, such as my website, and gave me confidence about the decisions that I have made.Read more

Amy Howard, Owner of Honker Tonkers, Whitstable, Kent

“Coaching has had a big impact on helping me to decide the shape of my future. You helped me to decide whether to concentrate on my theatre company or to expand Honker Tonkers, and I have been focusing on the latter ever since.” Read more

Michelle Gyimah, Owner of Equality Pays, Manchester

“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 you understood my needs brilliantly! You know the pressures of leaving a secure job, starting up your own business and having a small child at home. I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a friendly professional accountability business coach.Read more

Career change coaching

Teresa Young, Rochester

“Lucy was very good in teasing out those areas that I had difficulty facing. I was able to address my weakness and my strengths in a more productive manner, which enable me to reframe the way I was thinking and improve my mindset – I was able to visualise my career pathway more clearly.” Read more

Rachel*, Sittingbourne, Kent

“Lucy helped me to follow a simple and practical process to identify my future work options and balance these against the priorities within my personal life. I am as a result now employed in a less demanding, but still personally fulfilling role, on a part-time basis.” Read more

Georgia O’Reilly, Sittingbourne, Kent

“Coaching has had a positive impact on my life. Although we focused on my career and starting my small business, it also has helped in making decisions in family life. Without the coaching I don’t think I would have launched my business by now.You made me believe I could do it but also kept my feet on the ground with practical advice.” Read more

NR*, Essex

“I wanted to have a long term plan for my career change and I came to a conclusion after three researching different job possibilities. The exercises you gave me were very good to start to find out where I was at and where I needed to go. And as you have a young family, you totally understood me.” Read more

LS*, Faversham, Kent

“You were instantly really understanding and you encouraged me to talk through the issues. However, I think you realised that we needed to look at the bigger picture and this was really great.” Read more

Helen Gibson, Gillingham, Kent

“The process of talking through my ideas with someone very knowledgeable in the areas of career and travel was very helpful to me. I was able to verbalise my ideas and think over them and receive constructive feedback, which allowed me to be less indecisive about my life choices.” Read more

NJ*, Canterbury, Kent

“Working with Lucy helped me prioritise and understand better the complex balance that I needed to grasp and gave me confidence to go out and achieve my career goals without sacrificing my family balance, in fact putting it at the heart of my decision making.” Read more

Life Coaching

AN*, Surrey

“I sought out life coaching because I felt a bit stuck. I was due to return to work after having a baby, but the job was dull and left me deflated and frustrated. Because of the changes I’ve made in terms of work, I’m less frustrated at work, less bothered about the boredom, and less whingey about it. I’m proud of myself for actually *doing* those things, rather than just wishing I could.” Read more

PD*, Faversham, Kent

“Having my coaching sessions has motivated me, and helped me to appreciate the good things in my life. I feel more positive now.” Read more

JW*, West Malling, Kent

“I appreciated having access to an external, unbiased individual who could listen to my concerns.  This was invaluable to make me realise my achievements and helping me focus on the positives.  Learning to use affirmations was also of particular value for me.” Read more

SW*, Maidstone, Kent

“In simple terms, my goal was to put the past behind me and to stop it controlling my present and the future. I did not realise how much these matters were colouring my outlook on life in general. The coaching has had a very positive impact.” Read more

Mike Tillman, Faversham, Kent

“I felt that I was listened to very carefully, and my needs were well understood. My background and needs were (to me) quite complex, but you picked out the relevant detail and made the whole process seem straightforward and achievable.” Read more
