"I have never forgotton you and I hope you are doing well. I do the warrior, royal, (and tree), stances automatically now. It has now become innate. When I arrive at the office everyone knows about it. I talk to everyone and get on with almost everyone. I know almost everyone's name. I always greet the receptionists with a good morning and happy smile and they always say to me "Good morning Sam!" in reply. (And I always bid them farewell at the end of the day of course). I am so confident now and I know I can do anything, the only limit I have is the one I set in my mind; and so I have set no limits!

I kept reading your General Principles For Developing Confidence, months after you gave it to us and it has been instrumental in helping me to abandon my previous negative mindset.

Thank you for everything Gina"

"Changing Lifecourse Training & Coaching

Gina is a very engaging speaker who communicates with passion, commitment and from the heart. The subject matter was extremely interesting and I would have loved to listen to her speak for much longer. I’m leaving the session feeling very positive and with several good ideas to put into action. Thank you!!!"
Clare Cracknell – Career Serve Co-Operative Ltd Colchester

"Very much enjoyed Gina's talk on building emotional and professional resilience. Gina is an inspiring and engaging speaker, I wish the session was longer as I could have listened to her all evening!

She gave a whole new meaning to the expression 'playing to our strengths' and not allowing our perceived limitations to restrict us. What makes it more special is that it all stems from Gina's own journey and challenges which gave the talk real integrity. It was great to listen to examples of how one can turn problems into stepping stones.

Some brilliant practical tools and tips, some of which I will certainly be practising! Thank you!"
Alex Klokkaris, Colchester

"I would like tae this opportunity to thank you for the assistance that you have provided me with in recent months.

Through your coaching sessions you have helped me to not only maintain but strengthen my focus and resolve on both a professional and personal level. As you know, the year 2008 holds many exciting challenges for me and you have helped me to view those forthcoming challenges with a fresh perspective; the net result of this has been greater efficiency and a sense of no task is beyond me,

I look forward to continuing to work with you as I believe that we have only "scratched the surface" in terms of potential. I would strongly recommend that anyone with ambitions for the New Year, bid or small consult you for some coaching as the benefits are huge.

"WOW!!! Gina is an amazing story teller and my kind of gal. Her talk and the way she presents it makes so much sense. We are all changed as a result of listening to her. Thank you!!!"

"Gina is truly remarkable ? quite simply she saved my life and I do not exaggerate that in any way. I knew Gina, although we had never met personally and as yet still haven't, through my work running a 'virtual' office from home. Without going into detail at the beginning of 2010 a number of changes occurred the effects of which were to rip my life as I'd known it to shreds. I neither chose nor wanted any of these sudden changes.

When Gina rang me one morning it was a morning that saw me pacing my office like a caged animal in utter despair. What precisely prompted me to pick up the phone when it rang I don't know because I was distraught, hardly able to speak let alone answer the phone professionally, however, pick up the phone I did and that was the best phone call I have ever taken.

Gina stayed on the phone with me for I believe two hours. She gave me the tools to deal with the immediate distress I was in and thereafter we embarked on weekly, then fortnightly sessions to move me from the place of despair I'd found myself in to where I am now which is a very different place.

It's not been easy, choosing to learn from what has happened can be uncomfortable, painful and sad, but with Gina's help and support it's possible. We all know that bad things happen to everybody all the time, in my particular case it was the sheer number of things that happened so quickly that brought to my knees, literally. I knew I needed help and that help, in the form of Gina, found me just at the right moment.

I am so strong now and I have learnt so much about myself ? some nice, and some not so nice. But the journey has been and still is fascinating.
Gina is so kind, never judgemental; she holds a safe space where you can be open and honest. Gina pushes when pushing is needed, supports when support is needed but she gets you there and you never feel like you're battling along on your own. You will make changes, you will be better, (Gina would pick me up on the word 'better' because that indicates that you were somehow bad before) your life will be different. Be prepared for some soul searching but also be prepared to find greatness because we all have greatness within us - sometimes we just forget.

I could talk about Gina forever but suffice it to say she will remain a very special person in my life ? without her - well I don't want to think about that!"

"I saw Alex last night at the HCCI Exec Board meeting.
He said that for years he has been trying to get Jenny to do something for herself or accompany him to events but he couldn't convince her.

In the short time that has taken place since the workshop, jenny is asking to go along to different things. he said that on Tuesday they went to a HCCI event and he said he was really proud watching her take part.
Quite honestly, I think we have a star in the making.

Well done you!"
Yvonne

"I thought I would send a short email to say how much I enjoyed the training at Wickford yesterday.? I myself have often facilitated our Skills to Foster course, for prospective foster carers and, more recently as required by the CA '04 , a raising awareness campaign. This entailed doing presentations to a number of partner agencies, as well as to staff members in our own Department. I mention this only to share that I have some little insight into the world of training and presentations.

I thought that your presentation was clear, informative and relevant. Having said that, it must also be mentioned that your pitch and clarity of voice were very good, as was your interaction with all participants.

I am also grateful for the handout on Attachment and the way you related this to the subject matter.

Thank you for a very professional afternoon."
Win Escallier , Senior Practitioner, Private Fostering, Basildon
