HS, client – ‘Rachel has helped me through a lot of things. At times when I needed someone, she was there. She understood me, wasn’t there to judge me which is what many people tend to do nowadays. At times I felt there was no point but speaking to Rachel made me think about things in a different way. Even after things happened, she is still on the end of a phone and more than happy to speak to me. She makes time for anyone who needs her, I honestly don’t know how I would have got through without her support.’
LP, client – ‘Rachel has helped to build my confidence in areas where I have struggled, especially believing in my skills and attributes. Rachel helped me to identify issues and with that find solutions. By discussing situations with Rachel, I was able to recognise what to do next, as opposed to Rachel telling me what she would do. Rachel provided me with information and guidance during a crisis which helped me to reflect and process the situation.’

SS, client– ‘Rachel has been mentoring me on a post-graduate course. I had been out of education for many years and Rachel was able to re-cap on basic skills required such as research / essay planning etc. and is very adept at pitching to the level required. Rachel has a clear, pragmatic approach which is particularly useful when in the thick of an assignment. She always responds quickly to email / phone contact and is clear about her availability to work. Rachel is able to look at work objectively and offer constructive feedback about strengths and area to improve. Rachel will not do things for you but with you…..I have found having her thoughts and encouragement alongside my efforts makes you feel you are not doing it alone and I’m not sure I could have got this far without her! I would definitely recommend her support.’
