Kind words from clients
I’m grateful for the opportunity to partner with my clients on their journeys to find power, purpose and joy. They’ve provided these reasons to believe that working with me works!
I have run my own business for 10 years and whilst it is successful, I was feeling stuck! I was ready to take it to the next level, but I couldn’t quite put my finger on what that would require of me and what was holding me back. Add to the mix that I also had a new business venture, sitting on the shelf and waiting for me to push the button: I truly couldn’t see the wood for the trees on any level!
Jessica was recommended to me and whilst I had used a Professional Coach in the past, I couldn’t see that this would help me this time. Wow! How wrong I was! Just one session with Jessica felt like the fog had cleared: I guess it is down to years of professional training on her part but to me it felt like magic! It was like Jessica steered me through a maze and helped me to focus on an end goal I didn’t even realise I had.
Jessica challenges me but doesn’t bully me; she guides me but doesn’t lead me. Every session leaves me re-energised and excited about what I will achieve. Her intuition is second to none and she truly respects whatever place I am in and helps me to grow from there. I am honoured to work with Jessica and know that whatever direction I choose to move in at any time, she has my back and will guide me there, helping me unleash my own potential!

Working with Jessica is like working with the best version of you, in that she doesn’t create her solutions or give you the answers she thinks you need to hear, she helps you find your own. She holds your hand (and sometimes kicks your butt) whilst you weave your way through what feel like insurmountable obstacles, in the way of where you want to be. She helps you gain clarity of thought and a renewed sense of purpose and belief, whilst climbing over those obstacles, drop-kicking some out the way, or maybe taking a slightly different path.
Ultimately, I think we all know what the best version of us looks like, but it’s easier and less scary to keep it hidden. Jessica helps you find the courage to speak that aloud, and actually believe it to be true.
I can’t thank Jessica enough for helping me escape from a soul-destroyingly awful corporate job, and on to a completely new path with passion and purpose.

“By the end of our first session Jess had already figured out what makes me tick; it was like having a mirror held in front of me – powerful stuff. I found our sessions supportive and safe whilst challenging all at the same time! Her focus on remembering to nurture yourself was particularly beneficial”
Helen Moss-Black, Tech Pixie
“I have already recommended her services to several friends, and have no hesitation in recommending her to you – she already has a solid track-record in assisting the expansion and consolidation of small businesses and is building an enviable reputation as a valuable asset to any business”
Jacqui, Kitchen Design Company Owner
“When I believed I couldn’t, Jess helped me to see that I could. Her strategies for managing time, and prioritising the demands of family & work – which often seem to pull us in opposite directions – have been such a great help. Thank you Jess for your expert support and guidance.”
Heidi Evans, Tech Pixie
“Talking to Jessica was like someone handing me the magic key, it is now up to me! I would recommend Jessica to anyone and actually already have!”
Hayley Southwood, Entrepreneur
Jess has an incredible ability to challenge your beliefs in a productive and meaningful way - a way that allows you to be the version of yourself that you want to be by taking practical steps towards your goals - nothing airy fairy, just highly effective mentoring for women who have high expectations of themselves and things they
want to achieve personally and professionally.
Catherine Warrilow, Brand Director
I was introduced to Jess through the TechPixies course. Life coaching was a key element of the course, providing women with new skills, but
also recognising that women who have been out of the workplace raising children often also need some emotional support to get back into the workplace. Working with Jess has made a huge difference to me over the past year or so. I wasn't in a great place in my head
when we first met. While on the surface everything probably appeared fine,underneath I was really struggling. I'd lost a huge amount of confidence and in many ways, I was really unhappy. I felt like I'd lost 'me'.
Jess gave me the space to talk about how I felt - which I'd not
felt able to do for a very long time. Being able to talk freely can bring up a lot of emotions, and the sessions were tough. Jess helped me to re-frame some of the stories in my head and see them from a new perspective - often from a perspective where I put myself first,
not in a selfish way, but in a way that means I'm staying true to my values. I would say that this has been the biggest shift for me this year -
truly understanding that sometimes you have to say no to others in order to say yes to yourself... and that that's OK.
As a coach, Jess has challenged me in all the right ways. I know that as a result I've grown in confidence and I feel like I have rediscovered me...a bolder, happier me.
Following the sessions, I went on to find a part-time role that I loved, and now, 18 months on I'm about to leave to start my own business. I'm certain that I will continue to check in with Jess as I move forward with my new venture. I'd have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Jess to anyone who is willing to be open, to be honest, to be challenged and who is really serious agout working on
themselves to make lasting changes.
Elaine Ford, Consultant
I started working with Jessica last year and have learnt so much about myself, really understanding what works for me, my business and my family. She's worked with me to let go of all the things I feel I 'should'
͛be doing and to trust what my heart is telling me. I've had so many powerful light-bulb moments that have helped me move forward. I always look forward to our sessions. I love that Jessica really gets
me to think differently and to challenge myself, pushing me gently out of my comfort zone. She also makes me believe that I can do it, whatever it may be - and helps me clear those blocks that inevitably come up. Thank you Jessica.
