"Isla is a terrific coach, she has really helped focus my mind and guide me to identify exactly what it is that I need to do to develop by business. She's a fantastic listener and encourager and is so easy to open up to. Isla is also very insightful, so rest assured, she will pick up on any underlying issues that you may have and work with you to resolve them. I am so grateful for Isla's input, she has brought clarity to areas where I was struggling, helped me develop some fantastic goals and prioritise my actions to help me really progress. If you truly want to sore and realise your full potential, then I thoroughly recommend Isla."

"Isla’s coaching style is challenging while actively listening to your needs. She asks the hard questions while supporting you to form an action plan to find the solutions for yourself. I found the monthly targets and actions a good focus as I respond well to challenge and personal goal setting. As I achieved each goal my sense of self belief and confidence returned, increasing my life balance. I looked forward to the coaching sessions as they were non-judgemental but I felt someone really cared about my personal success and that Isla wanted to support me to get there. I got a lot out of analysing my work and life wheels and referred to these through the process evaluating how things were changing. This was a positive reflection process and one I will continue. I am generally a reflective practitioner and one that constantly strives to improve in my work and life. I felt the coaching process was an asset in empowering me to continue to the next phase in my life and has re-energised me in my career."
"My experience of being coached by Isla has been a real journey. She has an innate ability to guide you and to give you the confidence to focus on your goals and aspirations with your own tools. She is clear, concise and professional in her delivery of the process which inspired me to really think about what it was I wanted to achieve and how I could reach my full potential. Her creativity and intuition allowed me to evaluate what where the real issues holding me back in specific areas of my life and I have to say that I have achieved more in the past 6 months than I have in the last 3 years. I always thought that I was a self motivated, driven person but what this process has done for me is that it has taught me how to look at my life and self in a very different way, for which I will be eternally grateful. So for anyone who wants to be the best they possibly can be I would highly recommend Isla, she is a pleasure to work with and a very inspirational individual."

“I had the pleasure of being coached by Isla in the autumn of 2011. She really helped me bring clarity to some of the main issues of my life and a way forwards. I found her to be very intuitive and creative in her approach which was really helpful for me to get somewhere in my own thinking, something I wouldn’t have been able to do on my own. She came across as very confident and inspiring in her approach, which enabled me to feel safe talking about things that were close to my heart. I would recommend her to anybody who is looking for someone to hear their story and move forwards in life in a new direction.”
