Coaching with Thérèse gave me time to think and reflect and helped me look at the many options open me both personally and professionally. Through coaching I gained fresh perspectives and discovered new ways forward. Therese’s combination of skilful coaching combined with her many years as an educational advisor and consultant, really supported me in thinking strategically about the critical actions I needed to take in moving my school further forward and creating a school that really meets the emotional and social needs of our children. I now have an inspiring vision and am excited about my schools future.

Improved communication and collaborative working is at the absolute heart of her service.
I’d recommend Therese for anyone who wants to review their effectiveness as a leader and to refresh their skills. I found Therese to be affirming, reassuring yet challenging. With her coaching I have become more accepting of myself and recognise that some of my perceived weaknesses are in fact strengths. This has been very powerful and I now have strategies in place to help me change some negative self beliefs. With her support I have developed a deeper understanding of myself and my needs and in doing so I have strengthened both my leadership and life skills.
