"Well done on your article '10 steps' !!? Your articles are always a breath of?fresh air.?


You showed me the key
Now I am free from self criticism, guilt and blame
I am free to discover, explore and be daring
To dis-reguard the protective suit I've been wearing
I am free to know truth and let go of a past ? which was uncaring
To dance and sing and enjoy this life which is for living
Once found this key can never be mislaid
This prized possession released me from shame
Unlocking the door giving access to the ZONE
The special place I can visit you which is HOME
I am free
To truly be who I want to be
To be ME "
Anne, Hornchurch

"Since meeting Gina just over 2 years ago, I have come to realise what an important resource a life and executive coach is to a serial workaholic, which I have been for many years.

Gina has been at my side (metaphorically) throughout the last 2 and a half years as my life and executive coach and our relationship and her support has led to numerous life-changing experiences that, without Gina, I don't believe would have been possible.

Although I am considered to be a successful (some say high-flying) grown-up (I'm 36) and happily married, I have come to realize there are certain areas of my life that need a little (ok, maybe a lot) of attention. Relationships in my life, both personal and professional, have been challenging at times and Gina has worked with me to discover new and successful ways of approaching these challenges. Together we have identified potential new ways to behave and communicate with my team and my boss at work as well as with my parents and my husband.

Gina has been the enabler in helping me release more of my personal potential and she has taught me how to prepare for the future. In looking at the potential future in different ways, I have been able to identify new opportunities for personal and professional growth and I have had the most incredible journey.

Gina has been there at the moments in my life when I've needed the voice of reason and rational thought. She has shown me ways of dealing with life's roller-coasters by employing new strategies and new behaviours. I have developed courage and strengthened my self-confidence because of her support and guidance. She never tells me anything, she merely asks me searching questions which seem to push the right buttons and elicit responses which develop new strategies.

"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!"

"At the end of 2007, I was fortunate enough to meet a lady who has guided me through my fears and uncertainties. Previously when I thought about "the future" it was a scary prospect and somewhere I didn't want to think about. Being enabled to express my feelings openly has made me and makes the future something to be embraced rather than feared."

"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.

"Having reached the?point at which I felt I was in danger of letting work completely dominate my life, working with Gina has helped me put work and all its pressures?back into a more sensible perspective. I am now organizing myself and my?time (work and personal) in a calmer, more rational manner.

Thank you Gina"

"From the moment Gina took to the stage our audience were transfixed. With her blend of story telling and common sense approach we were all able to take great value from the rock solid techniques and advice offered.

Gina is one of those speakers that you could listen to again and again because she communicates with honesty, passion and emotion. Gina shares her experiences and expertise readily and is incredibly generous with her time.

I suggest that anyone who has the opportunity to hear Gina speak clears their diary and books their place without delay.

I also highly recommend Gina's book 'Chariots on Fire', an incredibly accessible and useful read. Gina's renown as a specialist in Personal Empowerment and Leadership is well deserved. "
Nick Looby - Chairman Essex Business Club

"When I took over a new team I wanted to create a shared vision within an improved team environment and make better use of the team's time. Gina devised and facilitated a super 4 hour workshop which she delivered at my office in Canary Wharf. I met with her before the meeting and was able to explore not only the areas I felt were blocking progress and the potential issues facing the team. I found the discussion extremely useful in developing my role as the leader of the team and in planning the strategies to use with the team.

We worked as a team throughout the session. Everyone was successfully encouraged to take ownership of the issues and see themselves as part of the solution.

During the session we identified several things which were getting in the way of optimum team efficiency and which constantly drained our resources. Gina ensured that everyone had a voice and that there was a real sense of "team". Everyone felt valued and even the tricky issues were fully aired and dealt with in a positive and constructive way.

We developed, together as a cohesive unit, strategies and approaches that we were all willing and keen to adopt to improve our efficiency and effectiveness. The session was very practical but fun too. People were fully engaged in the process

All our thoughts and ideas were recorded in a very well executed, team-building environment. We left the session with priorities identified and a cohesive plan to move the agenda forward for ourselves and with other departments and with the Senior Management Team of the company.

Back at the desk, the team felt they had been offered a great opportunity to air their frustrations and share their ideas. They had been empowered to find their own solutions and resources that could be easily employed to produce better results.

The results of the session were lasting and far reaching. We had together created a way of making far better use of our individual and team time and manage the expectations of other departments.

It was a really worthwhile session which I recommend Gina to any manager who wants to build the department's sense of team or more efficient and effective use of the team's time.

"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."
