"Thank you so much Lou for a fantastic programme of Zoom workshops for me and my team on wellbeing and resilience. You have really helped us all to stay healthy, motivated, connected and productive during these challenging times of enforced home working. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone trying to run a business or manage a team in these strange times. I'm sure we will work together for further coaching in the future."
OWNER AND DIRECTOR, WEALTH MANAGEMENT COMPANY
"Lou, today was utterly amazing. Thank you so much! Best workshop so far, fun interactive and informative in all great doses. Everyone loved it!"
"I loved the group exercise today! Not only did it hugely help in improving about how I felt but it was a great way to bond more with the team."
CEO, LAW 365
"I realised I was taking on too many things. One minute I thought I had it all figured out and it took just a few small things to bring down the house of cards. I have much better perspective now. Thank you!"
"Since I started working at Law 365 Louise has become an important part of my life. She works with each employee individually for 2 hours a month and also runs workshops every other week for the whole team. I think it's so helpful to know what culture we're trying to create (where people listen to each other, respect each other and work effectively together) and that our individual contributions to that culture matter. She's the voice in my ear when I know I need to stop and take a moment to breathe and reframe a situation. The biggest thing I've learned this year (the year of Covid) is that I can't control what happens, but I can control how I react to it. It takes work, and it's much easier with a friend (or a coach like Lou) to help you along the way. If only more employers took care of their employees the way @Law 365 does!"
HEAD OF CLIENT SUCCESS, LAW 365
"My sessions with Louise have been invaluable to me in helping me to structure my goals in a way that I’d never thought possible and to focus on the things that really matter to me. She has helped me to challenge all of my self-limiting beliefs which has had such a positive effect both to my career and personally, as I now feel more confident and able to handle situations that I used to struggle with. Her lovely upbeat and warm manner are such a pleasure to work with and I always come out of her sessions feeling invigorated and motivated."
TECHNOLOGY AND COMMERCIAL LAWYER
"Having now worked with Louise for the best part of a year, I have found the sessions and on-going support invaluable in navigating some critical junctures of my professional career to date.The most significant takeaways for me are Louise’s skills in understanding and an ability, without ever giving explicit direction, to help consider a wider variety of options in situation management, that have empowered me to communicate in a suitable style in any given scenario.
At times, I have been far from my comfort zone when reciting, or even role-playing some pivotal events in which I had felt uneasy, but now having done so, my understanding of the results and alternative options after analysis with Louise, has helped me build a ‘toolkit’ to navigate what were previously anxiety filled situations in a less personalised and more open and considered manner. I have also seen unexpected benefits from the sessions beyond the working environment. At home, I am able to better dedicate myself to being present with my family and the interactions with my wife and children have become more reasoned and mutually fulfilling.
Louise is clearly a dedicated professional who is keen to expand her already comprehensive skill set which can only benefit people like myself further. I look forward to continuing my sessions well into the foreseeable future."
MANAGING DIRECTOR, GLOBAL ASSET MANAGEMENT COMPANY
"The opportunity to have some coaching with Louise came at such a perfect time for me. I had recently moved into a new role and had a key milestone I was working towards that had felt quite overwhelming. This unproductive state was making it hard to see the wood for the trees and in our first session, Louise helped me clear that and articulate the goal that would bring the most value over the next few months. From there we worked together identifying blockers and solutions to overcome them through the use of various tools and some great questioning/challenging from Louise. I am now almost a month on from successfully completing that milestone and I can’t thank Louise enough for giving me the confidence, order and clarity to make the contribution I did. Louise is warm, very personable and has great intuition. An excellent coach who I would thoroughly recommend to others. Thanks Louise and I look forward to the possibility of working with you again."
LEADERSHIP CONSULTANT, BUPA
"I took a lot away from my coaching sessions with Louise. In a short space of time, she was able to bring structure and clarity to my thinking, and give me useful, practical tools to apply to my professional and personal life. She is calm, thoughtful and skilled at picking out the salient points from a discussion and guiding you towards useful insights."ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR, INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT COMPANY
"I was coached by Louise during quite a challenging period at work. During our sessions Louise was able to help me gain focus and establish what my priorities were. She provided me with a calm space to think and also be challenged on ways to move forward. By really listening and asking the right questions, she helped me address the challenges, find my own solutions and design my own action plan. I would recommend her as a coach and the approaches she brings with her."
PARTNER AND FREELANCE CONSULTANT
"Louise is a fantastic coach: her gentle manner but quietly probing questions really got me to think about what it is that I really wanted to achieve, and what was getting in my way. She pushed me in a very gentle but effective way to think about my goals. I left the session feeling refreshed and optimistic about what I needed to do. I particularly enjoyed the exercise “the Wheel of Anything”. It allowed me to “brain-dump” all of my worries onto one page and see them in a new light - and see how some were inter-connected. Really interesting and insightful. I found the session very up-lifting. It’s SO nice to be listened to too! Thank- you!"
COACH AND LEADERSHIP CONSULTANT
“Louise has been transformational to my business and my personal growth. Not only has she seamlessly given me those ‘a ha!’ moments and moments of complete clarity on the direction of where my business needs to go, she is incredibly easy to work with and talk to. She works tirelessly to help you achieve your goals in each session and comes well prepared with fun packed ideas to try out. For example, I had a great role play exercise in my last session where I was able to look at how I engage my employees on a 360 degree basis; looking at it from their perspective, my perspective and a third parties and then to change the habits to affect the results of a better conclusion. I can’t emphasis enough how game changing Lou is, so much so that she has enabled me to triple the size of my legal business in only 3 sessions. Going in with an open mind and a willingness to change along with Lou’s coaching has made me excited about the prospect of where my business can go. Thank you so much Lou, can’t wait for our next session!”
CEO, LAW 365
"Louise is a good active listener who created a safe space for me to explore options and make choices. I liked how her coaching style sometimes felt like a very constructive, friendly chat where she was willing to give tips, and ideas to support my stepping out of my comfort zone without influencing my decisions. I learnt about how warmth and trust can be created in a coaching relationship and how being authentic and showing integrity as a coach can really become appealing to coachees. I definitely managed to let go of some limiting beliefs of my own throughout the sessions. Also, I developed some new habits that are still serving me in my everyday life. If you would like to experience being accepted and being in a trusting coaching relationship, I would definitely recommend you to get in touch with Louise."
LEARNING COACH, DR BEATRIX HENKEL
"Really important self and group coaching session, which bonded us a group more than before."
"Enables you to get to know your work courage!"
"Great time for reflecting, planning and re-assessing"
"Well worth the investment of time and money!"
PRIVATE GROUP OF CEO'S AND BUSINESS OWNERS
“Louise and Katherine are a dynamic team. They bring both their different expertise and deliver a punchy presentation on how important it is to monitor our health and what to be aware of. I thought I was a fairly well informed individual having a keen interest in diet, nutrition and sport but there were so many things I had missed and it was good to understand in what ways the mental health aspects really impacts on the physical aspect.
Who knew that your gut was effectively a ‘second brain’ and the importance of looking after it and how! Really useful and something everyone should have an understanding on”
