“I was just 46 when I contacted Beth. I have been involved for over 25 years in personal development (my own, not professionally), and I admit, I was somewhat sceptical about “life coaching”. Not anymore! We have had a total of 7 one-hour sessions and the impact on my life has been absolutely remarkable.
I found Beth to be always positive and interested, and from her questions I knew that she was listening to everything I was saying (no mean feat). We achieved a great deal together, even though there were occasions when I hadn’t accomplished all that we had agreed the previous week. On those occasions Beth was quick to acknowledge just how much I had achieved, and often it was just my weird view of myself. I would not hesitate to encourage anybody and in fact everybody to experience coaching and Beth in particular. (They should use it in schools, dammit.)” Steve Silverstone, UK
“Beth was very good at helping me to see that what really needs to change is my approach to work, and in fact my approach to many aspects of my life. During our sessions, her focus was always on providing me with the tools I would need to continue to coach myself beyond the end of our last session. She introduced me to many tools and strategies to do that. In our conversations, I appreciated Beth’s warmth, honesty, humour, her attention when listening and the ability to tease out what was important from the mess of thoughts that I often presented her with. She pointed out repetitive cycles that I wasn’t aware of. While we worked together, I learned so much about myself and the habits of thought and behaviour that I’d been struggling with for a long time. Thanks to that work, I’ve started the process of changing those habits, and can continue to do that armed with the many insights and techniques that I gained through Beth’s coaching. I would (and do!) 100% recommend Beth’s coaching for anyone feeling ‘stuck’ and unable to make progress on their own.” Becky, Cambridgeshire
“Before I started coaching with Beth I felt I was treading water. I also felt so very constrained in how I lived my life; both what I did and how I behaved. I compared myself to other people and my own expectations, and I had so much noise in my head (that I didn’t realise at the time) that I felt tangled up in all my thoughts. Beth is the ultimate de-tangler. Over our time together we made so many breakthroughs, gaining greater clarity in many aspects of my life. I felt like I discovered what I really knew I’d cared about all along and how I could really be me without letting all the silly self-limiting stuff getting in the way. I really got back in touch with feeling fully alive and the joy that that brings for me and all those around me. Beth is truly wonderful. A bright, shiny person who just radiates warmth, generosity and understanding. She has extraordinary skills as a coach, all of which the other testimonies accurately capture. I have enjoyed spending time with her no end and I just feel so lucky to have had this whole experience together. If you have any fogginess in your life, picking up the phone to Beth isn’t a bad first step.” Rob, Devon
“Beth is an incredibly skilled and intuitive coach. The way she reflects your own thoughts back to you is scarily to the point and the truth you knew and really didn’t want to hear. She is the best for accountability and kicking you into action when all you want to do is hide under the analysis paralysis blanket. No chance with Beth. She is also such a deep listener that she hears things in what you say you didn’t even know were there but she has never failed to be spot on with her analysis. I love working with Beth and do so on an ongoing basis, because she is one of the best in this industry!”Jana Hendrickson. Career Coach. www.janahendrickson.com
“It’s with true sincerity that I hope I can convey what a truly remarkable sense of composure that Beth gave me not only over my overbearing surroundings, but to me more importantly, myself. Both with excellent, coherent technique and simple reassuring company, I found my sessions an almost immeasurable help. It’s a difficult thing to write a testimonial about somebody who you have such admiration and gratitude for without sounding insincere but I truly could not recommend the service Beth offers more highly. Finding the motivation and strength inside myself that lead me to share the more personal elements of my life was a problematic task for me initially; however crossing this initial hurdle with the help of Beth has been one of the most rewarding journeys of my life. She’s an outstanding professional but primarily a kind, understanding and genuine person. I can’t imagine a better person at doing what she does. It was such a wonderful thing knowing that there is people like her around and she made me believe the ‘magic’ I seek can be found.” Jack, London
“I chose Beth because I wanted to work with a professional coach who would share my values and help me to take my life in the direction I wanted. I got the feeling that Beth knew what was important in life. I went with my gut in choosing her to be my coach and once again instinct knows best! Beth is open and caring, there was no judgement, just encouragement, some straight talking and subtle techniques to help change my mindset. If you get a good feeling about Beth then go with it, and don’t hesitate to book her.Looking over the whole journey (so far) I realise how anxious I was, how guilty I felt about a lot of things when I first met Beth. I now feel much freer but also more responsible for myself, my actions and my choices. I am now able to enjoy relationships that I previously found difficult and disappointing. I used to spend a lot of time and energy trying to second-guess what people thought of me and attempting to manage their perceptions. Working with Beth has helped me realise that’s it’s OK to be me, by not letting my hide and by not judging me when I did admit my true fears and aspirations. It was a emboldening experience to realise that I am neither good nor bad and has given me the confidence to make the choices that are right for me and my family.” Angela, Manchester
“I contacted Beth as I was unhappy in my job / career and I was struggling to know what path to take next. Beth is an extremely warm and open person. This makes it very easy for you to feel relaxed and you immediately find yourself opening up. She was able to make me see that the answer was already staring me in the face and perhaps more importantly she gave me techniques to help me minimise my negative thought patterns. Beth was able to really bring positivity and energy out of me and make me believe that you can have everything you want out of life, the only person stopping you is you. I would very much recommend Beth.” Sharon, Manchester
“I wouldn’t have believed it at first, but within six months of meeting Beth I had achieved my most important goal. I went to see Beth because I felt confused and stuck, unable to achieve things I wanted in my career and personal life, and confused as to why. Not having the tools at my disposal to change my ways of thinking and acting were holding me back from achieving all that I knew, deep down inside, I was capable of. Beth helped me to acknowledge my goals and put a plan in motion towards achieving them. I was furnished with a set of tools that I could use every day to combat my lack of confidence and self defeating thoughts and tendencies. Beth is very practical and understanding. Simply put, she can get to the root of a problem, and it is often this realisation that will help you find a solution. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Beth.” Orla, Manchester
“After completing my six months of work with Beth, I told her I felt all aspects of my life had had a good shake up, and that there could be no more ‘watching from the sidelines’ in my life. The process had shown my life to me in a way that the many changes I needed to bring about were obvious. Much of the work had been on old familiar territory, where the greatest degree of stuckness lay. Beth has a way – or many – of dissolving stuckness – convincing you there are ways through. She is fantastically good at support and encouragement, showing great patience, insight and understanding. It also feels like a partnership. You feel guided, often challenged, to look at all the areas of your life that are the reasons you are there. It’s a really strengthening process. It’s also a structured process, which feels purposeful and dynamic. It generates great energy, optimism and excitement – all my friends and family noticed this! There is warmth and laughter too. Beth makes it easy to be open and honest, and most importantly, she makes you feel accountable – vital if you are to continue the process of change on your own. It requires taking responsibility for your life and your decisions, realising that everything we do – or don’t do – has consequences. The smaller things seemed able to be changed easily. The big things, for me, are ongoing, but motivation and methods for tackling them were gained through the coaching. One year on from my beginnings with Beth, the notes, homework tasks and processes are still the resources I draw on in order to keep the work alive. Most important of all perhaps, Beth offers a space to reflect on the consequences of not making the changes you want, and this is effective in getting the ball rolling. Never have I so clearly understood that there is only one go at this life.” Brigitte, Manchester.
“After months of frustration I decided to do something about it, and got in touch with Beth after hearing about her through a friend. I hoped she’d be the answer I was looking for and I can honestly say it’s the best decision I’ve made. Beth is a fantastic coach and really took the time and patience to understand my situation and how to help. After going through a tough 6 months, she provided guidance and structure to how I could visualise my goals and actually achieve them. I managed to do things I didn’t think were possible, and now I finally feel in control of my life and excited about the future. I’d like to say a huge thanks to Beth for everything, and would urge anyone considering coaching to definitely go for it!! It really is life changing.” Jennie, London
“I cannot even begin to describe the profound change that Beth has helped me create in my life in a very short time, and my mindset is fundamentally better for the work we have put in. I looked for a coach when I felt I’d hit a crossroads. Too many choices and little focus left my head spinning. That was before I met Beth. Over a few weeks Beth helped me understand what I needed to focus on, but the most important thing I learned was that a lot of the thoughts that had stifled me previously were all of my own making. Together we removed the blockers and now I have some clarity about what I want to do and how I want to do it. Beth doesn’t give you the answers, but she gives you the tools to work it out for yourself. Thank you, Beth.” Matt, Manchester
“Beth has been inspirational and her sessions have generated a huge change in my life. On our first session she could see my problems even though I was in denial. She was so patient and guided me at a pace I felt comfortable with. She was extremely flexible with times. Within a couple of months I could see clearly and my life changed dramatically. I am happier than I have ever been. I would recommend her to everyone. She has a personal quality that is extremely rare, a wealth of knowledge, experience and a natural talent that makes her so brilliant at what she does. Thank you for everything.” Emma, Manchester
“I was given a two hour session with Beth as a 30th birthday present by my sisters, after a particularly challenging year. I have always been rather adverse to counselling and have preferred to take positive action, so I was very interested in meeting Beth. The session was much more than I had imagined. I was expecting a rather factual objective and cold process, one where my life was assessed and lists were made. I didn’t expect the session to make me feel buoyant. Which it did. Beth was so warm, and kind. My life was talked about and worried about by me, while Beth calmly and kindly steered me. I never felt stupid or boring for rambling on about things that were confusing me, or I felt were limiting me, I felt listened to, objectively and without judgement. I feel unknotted. I also feel much more focused. I am planning on seeing Beth again, and I imagine the practical help she has offered will increase, as I become more and more focused. I am looking forward to it, and everything that is possible.” Bella, Berlin
“Beth has a wonderful energy which put me at ease straight away, as well as an amazing ability to really read what I was saying, especially when my words and energy were contradicting each other. I didn’t want to ‘change’ and I haven’t, but I have completely changed the way I approach and see life and its challenges. I feel free and excited. Thank you so much again Beth for the gifts, it’s been completely life changing!” Becky Billington, Cheshire.
“Beth has a seemingly instinctive ability to see beyond the words and read the whole energy of your being. She is incredibly astute at picking up on body language, energetic signals and breaking through the barriers we can erect very successfully, around our own self imposed limitations. Working with Beth has without doubt changed the course of my life and has helped me to make connections I couldn’t see, which in turn has really given me a clear sense of purpose.” Steph Magenta.
“The experience was totally positive, and helped me focus. A friend was in a dilemma yesterday about the colour of her paint, and I asked her how she wanted to feel in the room she is decorating, then I realised, that this was a Beth question! Your coaching has shown me how to think outside the box and to work towards a goal by naming it first and then making the steps towards it. Thank you Beth!” Marie Rhodes, Stockport
“Excellent relationship – Beth followed the process and created a great relationship for me to work within. She listened exceptionally well, I responded well to her challenge and felt comfortable and secure in the process. Challenging, enlightening, I have made decisions that I didn’t realise where possible when I first started. It has given me confidence and I have further discovered myself and realised my journey in life is my responsibility and that I have full control over it. A very pleasurable and worthwhile experience that I have learned form enormously. Her use of tools – language, communication etc was exceptional. She is a very talented coach.” Ann Marie Teed, Manchester
“I wasn’t sure what to expect from coaching. I knew that it related to things in my life and from the preparatory work that Beth recommended it all seemed straight forward. I knew what I was happy with in my life and where I wanted it to go.
The experience was amazing, having Beth’s eyes, ears and attention allowed me to see what I was wanting to do and enabled me to find the way to do it. It was a great opportunity for me to bypass anything that would have prevented me from reaching my goal. Beth was able to (gently) challenge the bits of my life that I didn’t want to look at and I feel all the more stronger for it. Although I thought that I was happy and knew where I was going having the partnership of Beth at a changing time enabled me to see and gain so much more. Thank you Beth” Gus Sevier, Derbyshire
“It is written at the time when I can correctly focus and provide Beth with what she fully deserves by way of recognition. To those that are reading this testimonial you may be doing it out of general interest or like me were searching for answers and guidance. If you are here there is a reason, if you need answers and guidance call upon the help of Beth and set in place the life you want to have rather than what you think you have to accept. I was collapsing both inside and externally, my energy was low and completely imbalanced. Confusion about direction and purpose seemed locked in every direction and angle due to my belief systems and filters. I called upon Beth’s help and can say that even the first telephone call and discussion was inspirational. I can remember the first session very well, and what I remember with every time I meet and speak with Beth is her immense radiating energy. You feel guided and positive the minute you see her even before any words are spoken.To talk through what we did over the weeks that follow would extend way beyond the space available for a testimonial. But the work we completed together looked at all of aspects of my life setting off a chain reaction that caused the unconscious mind to guide the conscious mind. The internal chatter box turned from negative to positive and had focus. A reconnection was formed with all angles and balance re formed. It became so clear that the path I had followed in life and continued to do so was wholly inappropriate although it may have been right at that time. Rather than following what I should be doing in life, I was continually allowing external expectation to rule my work and general well being, rather than just being myself. I needed to accept who I was and what I was meant to do whilst I am here on this earth. Then one day the answer arrived, the word itself created all the right feelings and everything about it was right. “Healing.” I worked through this using the skills shown to me by Beth to find what I could give that would fall within this work and would be compatible with me.It has been an absolute privilege to meet Beth and share part of my life with her.” Chris, Cumbria.
