Associate Head of School

“On a practical level, coaching provided a safe space, and time out, to explore what my role essentially entails, and equipped me with skills to communicate more effectively, motivate and galvanise my team.  On a personal level, the course helped me better understand myself and my thought processes, and provided new ways of thinking which have application for all areas of my life. Coaching has been a threshold moment both professionally and personally.”

“I was a participant on the ILM Level 5 Certificate Coaching and Mentoring course delivered by Marie. Over the duration of the course Marie was always there to provide support and direction when needed and as always delivered the training in an informative and relaxed manner. Her natural ability to put participants at ease helped make the content very enjoyable as well as ensuring we all understood the various coaching techniques.  The chance to achieve a recognised coaching qualification was very important with the added bonus of gaining valuable insights from Marie’s coaching experience. The course definitely helped me in my day to day work and made me a better and more inclusive manager. Even after the course finished Marie has continued to be a source of support and encouragement”

“The coaching programme was well-paced to match the participants’ needs. In particular, the course leaders brought a broad knowledge about people development generally, and this provided really valuable insight into coaching for all who attended. I thoroughly enjoyed it!”

“Coaching with Marie has transformed my working life.  It has helped me identify a clear mission for my working life and ways to meet my mission, particularly with respect to developing and being able to articulate my leadership role.  I have found the coaching sessions both supportive and challenging.  Marie has helped me in coaching with respect to individual goals (e.g. increase my grant income which has substantially increased since I started coaching) and making much more effective use of my time; as well as helping me develop my leadership skills by supporting me in several sessions with staff.”

“Coaching has had a very positive effect on my overall health and that feel of ‘burn out’ that can be common; I sleep much better, am less anxious, and much better able to cope with the stress of work.”

“Marie is an excellent coach. She quickly gains an in-depth understanding of each individual and brings out the best in them. Her approach is always flexible as she adapts swiftly to the varying situations that her coachee brings to her. However, she always brings the meeting to a close having listened and skilfully guided you to feeling empowered, assured and motivated.”
