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.”

Trish is a fantastic coach! She brings great humour and warmth to our sessions which makes me feel safe to step out of my comfort zone and take risks. Through her powerful questioning she enables me to look at issues from different perspective and helps me find solutions, which I own. She has great energy and is passionate about empowering women, particularly women in leadership. Her ability to listen deeply and call me out on the stories I hide behind, are amazing and much needed in order for me to reach my dreams and goals. I highly recommend this powerhouse coach for anyone in need of a shift and transformation in their life.”
