Why clients choose to work with me

Trudy has amazing listening and empowering skills. Didn’t feel like coaching, more of a natural conversation, which I really liked. I’m now more aware of the strategies I need to implement in my daily, weekly and even annual working and family life pattern to keep my energy positive, my outputs consistent and manage the increasing demands on my time and expertise.”
Katie Marlow
Company Director

When you ask someone to help reposition your business in written messages across a variety of materials, it's hard not to be precious about it. Trudy took on the job in a calm, understanding, practical and effective way. She listened, picked up the concepts, delivered the results I wanted alongside a framework that I could use to handle the evolution of those messages going forwards."
Lindsay Uittenbogaard
Company Director

Trudy helped me to recognise and to challenge the limiting belief patterns that were holding me back. She empowered me with tools to start to unlock a new future, and to begin moving forwards again. She is a skilled coach and a great listener and helped me to rebuild my confidence."
