“My sessions with Natasha were productive and enjoyable and have quickly helped me accelerate my progress toward achieving a number of goals.
Natasha started with an overview of my whole environment to help me create perspective and prioritise the importance of what I wanted to achieve within the context of other important areas of my life. This approach enabled me to maintain a healthy balance whilst freeing up time through a focused approach of achieving my goals. Natasha encouraged me to break my big ambition down into realisable chunks that gave me a sense of progress and fulfilment and made the overall goals more easily achievable.
Specifically, she has helped me refine an internal coaching program for use in my management role and helped me reach a point where I am launching my own Business Coaching Company. I am grateful for her guidance and support and happy to provide feedback to any potential client or contractor.”
“I was demoralized after a series of difficult situations in several of my previous jobs. I dealt with conflict in my last role, and I was upset that I couldn’t protect myself adequately. I felt incompetent and vulnerable. I quit my job without finding a new one and I was very scared that I would fall into depression.
I didn’t have the moral and physical strength to even open my computer and start looking for work. Even the thought of searching for a job terrified and discouraged me.
I understood that I needed a specialist who could explore and analyse my situations with me and work through them so that I could be more effective.
I started looking for coaches and I liked Natasha’s profile - she had written that she understood how difficult it is to be a woman in a technical environment and that was also my experience. Already at the first chemistry session, I realized that I was not mistaken in my choice, because sometimes we all need someone strong, kind and understanding to give a hand and a shoulder. Natasha turned out to be just such a specialist for me.
It was very comfortable working with her. We did not avoid difficult topics, but on the contrary, plunged into them and explored. Between sessions, Natasha sent additional materials for study and introspection, which were always very useful.
After the first two sessions where we looked at my conflict avoidance strategies and alternative behaviors to try out in such situations, I was able to start working on a resume and apply for jobs. Soon after, I was invited to 3 interviews to test out these new behavior patterns and the company offered me a job!
I was not satisfied with the salary, so Natasha and I discussed options for salary negotiation.
The difference in salary was significant, so I believed the opportunity to get the salary I wanted was relatively small. However, by doing everything that we discussed with Natasha, I succeeded.
Natasha, I am very grateful to you for your attention, professionalism and the support that you have been giving me during our coaching sessions.”
“I find the sessions well-structured and thought-provoking. The sessions are all tailored to what I want to get out of them. I had been feeling a bit stuck in a rut and I now have a number of strategies to support me in building my confidence and am setting goals and thinking about how I measure my progress against these. Natasha is supportive, positive and provides feedback and questions / challenges my views / opinions in order to help me think about how I can deal with or perceive situations differently. It has helped to give me a bit more focus and to think about my values and strengths and how I can utilise these.”
“I initially contacted Natasha as I was experiencing difficulties in my relationships with people at work and personally. Working with Natasha has been great. She’s been able to hold space for me to process my thoughts around this very difficult topic and point out interesting avenues and inconsistencies in my thought process. What I gained from working with her is confidence and support in dealing with a challenging issue. This lead me to fully committing to improving in this area and eventually coming out with a great result. I’m in a much better place with my relationships now and much happier because of it. Thank you!”
“Natasha created a safe thinking space from the start of our coaching sessions. Partnering with her allowed me to learn more about myself and think of various alternatives when faced with certain situations. As a coach, she had a calm, friendly presence and was able to put aside any judgement. She was reliable and willing to go the extra mile to assist me to reach my goals. I am very grateful to her and would certainly recommend her to anyone who is looking to tap deeper into their potential.”
“I really enjoyed this experience, in particular your ability to listen carefully, to reformulate and summarise my issues, and your tangible suggestions to help me better apprehend situations in which I was struggling. You gave me the confidence to delegate more to my team and better manage pressure from the top.”
“I went to coaching with Natasha to work through some issues around work-life balance that I’ve been thinking about for a while and wanted to change but didn’t know where to start. Natasha gave me the space and thought processes to explore how I’ve been feeling and supported me in reflecting on the different options I have to move forward. I now feel confident and I am seeing the changes we discussed, they are already making a huge impact on my life. Thank you Natasha!”
“Natasha’s focus was very much on the development of her team within the transformation process – helping them set high goals for themselves, giving them the space to try out new things and providing the right environment to achieve what they set out to do.”
“Natasha is someone who asks the difficult and uncomfortable questions that move things forward. As a peer on the same management team, she helped us to not make mistakes, see round corners and shine a light on blind spots. She’s also a huge amount of fun, incredibly reliable and a pleasure to work with.”
“Natasha was inspiring as a team leader and was always attentive to develop our skills. Thanks to her advice and daily support, I had the opportunity to learn a lot and to quickly improve my skills. She also managed in a way that created cohesion and an open atmosphere between the different members of the team bringing a high level of motivation and a high level of results.”
