It’s been an absolute joy working with Amy over the last few weeks. From the beginning she made it easy to arrange convenient times for our calls around a sometimes unpredictable freelance schedule. The sessions have been structured brilliantly; beginning with a useful check-in, goal setting for each session and then working through them.

Each session is perfectly paced, covering enough to make it feel like you’ve made real progress without feeling overwhelmed. In my time working with Amy we’ve really picked apart the goals I came with and turned them into manageable and actionable steps.

I’ve been equipped with tools that I can take forward and use indefinitely, and I’ve felt listened to, supported and nurtured along the way. Amy clearly genuinely cares about the people she’s coaching; she’s warm, approachable, supportive, easy to talk to and thoroughly dependable.

The immediate feeling of support that I received after initially reaching out to Amy, was truly invaluable, and genuinely picked me up at a time when I was at my lowest.

I was struggling to have the confidence to even say that I wanted to have my own business! I felt like it sounded totally ridiculous and unrealistic. But Amy’s belief and support in me from the outset, alongside her organised well structured sessions helped me to start to feel like it was really possible!

I went from feeling completely unenthusiastic about all my possible career prospects, to feeling massively motivated about starting my own business for real, practically in the space of an hour. Amy helped me to see and appreciate all the good stuff I’d done so far and helped me to see I was already making a lot of good decisions. As two creative women, naturally we also touched on some creative problem solving, future product ideas and I’ve even got the start of a 10 year business plan to name just a few things we touched on!

After each session we had, I left feeling massively motivated and I truly feel that a massive proportion of my success in my business this year is thanks to Amy’s help and support. Our relaxed friendly conversations have inspired and encouraged me to help achieve my dreams and I’m super excited to see what I can achieve in the next year!

I thought you'd understand my industry more than most, considering your craft/maker background. I was looking for a nurturer rather than a ballbreaker, and from your website I felt your approach would suit me.

I wanted a package that would last a few months as I knew I needed time. The package price suited my budget so I was comfortable taking a chance on working together for the first time.

The length of our sessions was just right - enough to chat through things while still needing to stay focused and not endlessly ramble on. You're very approachable, so it was very easy.

Despite some ferocious ambitions, I was in a fragile state when we first started talking, and needed someone to gently coax me back to life. You did that with great empathy and understanding, leaving me in a much stronger state to now tackle those biz goals.

I think being given some accountability and deadlines was important. I'd love to work with you again in the future.

Working with Amy has totally shifted my perspective of my business and how I fit into my creative community. Before meeting Amy I was feeling quite stuck with how my business was progressing and how I was managing my time. Through Amy's amazing patience, and of course her fascinating tool kit at hand, I found myself confronting some stuff I never had to before that has helped me totally reframe how I view my business. 

From our first session, through to our last, Amy helped me explore different aspects of my businesses that were making me feel stuck. I never felt rushed in our sessions, and felt satisfied when I left that I had managed to accomplish something, no matter how small. As a busy working mum, booking sessions couldn't have been easier, and Amy was always so accommodating with making sure our sessions could fit around any childcare I needed to arrange. 

I now feel in more of a positive place, with small but strong steps to help keep me going in the right direction. I don't think I would have been in such a position if left to my own devices; Amy helped take me out of my un-useful and repetitive thought patterns and behaviours, and helped me tackle my problems from a different angle. I couldn't recommend her highly enough to help you through any blockages or barriers that are holding you back from enjoying your business and taking it to that next level.

Amy is brilliant! I've so enjoyed our sessions. Her coaching has been invaluable for how I approach running my business. Things that previously felt overwhelming or vague now feel ordered, precise and positive. Highly recommended!

Working with Amy as my Business Coach has been pure pleasure. Working alone, you are in charge of so many decisions and I came to Amy when my energy and motivation were depleted.

She has helped me put in place some great strategies for managing my time. I have also learned how to pace myself better. Mostly, having someone to bounce ideas off, who really listens to what I am saying and reflects back what I truly want to happen, has been hugely useful. Amy has helped me find my own ways of working, and my own answer to where my creative business is going, which in turn has given me confidence to make my own way forwards. Having regular check ins has made me aware of how far I have come in a short space of time and Amy is great at helping me realise my achievements.

I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Amy’s coaching skills if you are a one woman creative entrepreneur

Amy has given me the chance to properly dig down into the things causing me unnecessary pressure which left me feeling so much more at ease. I left each session with a smile and a spring in my step and oodles of motivation. She is patient and calm and cleverly steers you to head in the right direction rather than focus on negativity.

Every session was amazing and enlightening. The two most helpful things we have done are the table of beliefs where I reaffirmed my status as an artist which was super empowering and the nlp session at the end where I learned how to create and use a ‘planned anchor’ to my advantage in stressful situations and it works a treat. I even used it before visiting the dentist and went from feeling sick and dizzy to calm again.

Great structure of each session. I was always surprised how quickly time went and although I would probably want longer thinking logically it's the right amount of time so that you can properly digest everything discussed afterwards.

Really easy to book my sessions! The clarity call set out everything I needed to know before we started and Amy was really flexible around making appointments to suit us both.

I am much more organised and have more clarity about the direction I want my business to take.  But more importantly Amy has given me the tools to believe in myself.

Absolutely recommend, Amy is a wonderful person and coach.
