My journey with Trish has been transformational - she "got" me. From being overwhelmed with possibilities, fears, and struggling to make sense of them all, Trish with insight, empathy and a box full of creative tools, has supported me through a process of reflection, understanding, and humour. I'm still on a journey but I now have clarity, confidence and direction. A friend highly recommended Trish to me, and I too recommend her highly.”

Coaching with Trish helped to shift me from surviving to enjoying my new role as a senior leader! Her unwavering confidence in others, encouragement and sensitive listening skills grow self-belief and a ‘can-do’ attitude in those she coaches. Across the academy, leaders who are coached by Trish are developing their understanding of their own values, growing in confidence to act on them and are becoming more effective in achieving their goals. They are also propelled into action and make more of an impact in their roles as a result.”
