“I was preoccupied with the slump in my work and income, and was concerned this would be yet another thing taking my time and energy away from the important job of finding work and making money.”
In fact, Joanne’s coaching was exactly what I needed to help me focus my precious time and money on finding work and making money! And I had a supportive coach to keep me company along a difficult journey that I’d become used to struggling along on my own.
At the start of coaching I set two clear goals. After just 12 weeks of coaching, I had achieved the first goal and was very close to achieving the second – 87% close, in fact!
I already am a high achiever – I’m disciplined, I set goals and I achieve them; in short, I pretty much know what to do in order to reach my potential. But having a personal life coach such as Joanne helps me to maintain my focus and life balance, so I don’t go off on needless little tangents. And it makes the journey all the sweeter, having someone so supportive at my back.
What I like most about Joanne’s coaching is that it is gentle, supportive and empathetic, rather than pushy and ‘ra-ra-ra’
It is always clear that this is my journey, and my lessons to learn, rather than what she wants for me. It means I get to take ownership of my own success (and hard work), but with a supportive professional at my back.
As my coach, I feel that Joanne is always thinking of me – often sending helpful tips and links on things she knows will be of interest or assistance to me.
I would highly recommend Joanne as a coach. There is a clear structure to the coaching sessions, so I always know what to expect, but at the same time I never feel like I am locked in to a single process. Joanne maintains a high level of integrity, always professional, always consistent, and she always follows up on what she says she will do.
