I had never before been exposed to dialogue with anyone about my values and personal vision - as a person or as an employee. Heather gave me profound insight into my behaviours and beliefs based on open and honest discussion which was both cathartic and enlightening. I now have an awareness of my limiting behaviours, strategies for managing difficult situations and a clarity about my ultimate potential as a human being. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Heather.

The work I have done with Heather has had a profound impact. A part of me naively hoped for either easy fixes or validation that I was right all along. I got neither! Instead, Heather’s experience and depth of insight allowed us to explore and address deeper underlying issues, and how they affected my thinking and behaviours both in my work and many other areas of my life. I now have better tools for tackling a wider range of issues. I can honestly say the work with Heather has been liberating and transformational.

Heather created a space that enabled me to set aside inhibitions. Her in-depth approach facilitated self-reflection in a structured, sustained manner and guided me to think more deeply about the implications and consequences of my choices and goals in a wider perspective. I understand much better how my attitudes and priorities in life and at work are interlinked. I have become more forgiving towards myself. I have a sense of taking practical steps to reach a ‘higher’ goal. I feel much more at peace with myself and my position in work and life.
