“My goals were to become more confident, to relate to family and partner better, to regain employment and to improve my health, financial and social life. Coaching has helped me to achieve all of the above, turning me into a happier, positive and more confident person and although some aspects are still ongoing I can definitely see a ‘rainbow’ up ahead and I could not have achieved any of this without Hazel’s help. Thank you so very much.” (Julia)
"Coaching with Hazel has helped me to review my goals, my personal and business core values and my personal interests and passions.
"Hazel coached me through a very turbulent period of my life last: having just taken the leap into freelancing as well as having relocated to a different area... I couldn't have picked a better time for her help!
"Working in the arts, I was initially hesitant about working with a life coach, as I'd always viewed it as mainly business oriented and possibly not a good fit with the unconventional and unpredictable ways of a freelance performer.
"The impact I received from Hazel's coaching has changed the way I saw the problem with a more positive attitude which enabled me to overcome the fear and lack of confidence.
"I approached Hazel for her help in regards to my business. I had become lost in the everyday and Hazel helped me to find my feet and renew my business purpose. We initially worked on the direction of my business and then expanded to implement a rebrand, now that I had a clearer vision of where I wanted to go. (Rebrand to be launched later this year). I would highly recommend Hazel, within the first few sessions I was already back on my feet and winning more work than I knew what to do with. I hope to continue working with Hazel later on in the year." (Rachel Ganeshwaran, Graphic Designer)
"Hazel is a great coach. I felt really cared for, really got a great deal of help with all my projects. I feel very satisfied with the coaching I received and the goals I set feel right for me. I would totally recommend Hazel. She is a brilliant coach." (Sally)
"Being coached By Hazel was an wonderful experience. I was stuck with so many ideas and so confused about how to move forward. Through the coaching sessions I started to see clearly the steps I need to take to grow my business. The way Hazel formulates the questions and patiently waits for my answers helped me to feel less overwhelmed and focus on what to do, in my priorities. During the four weeks we worked together I did achieve so much regarding my business, and from a ‘ I don’t have time to relax’ position I could even manage to have a nice long weekend away with my boyfriend.
"I worked with Hazel on many areas of my life and since being coached by her have achieved numerous goals in my life. Her questioning technique really challenged me at times and I was able to come up with lots of options, creative ideas and put action plans together after each session. Hazel was very supportive and encouraged me throughout our coaching journey together. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Hazel, she helped kick start other areas of my life. Many thanks Hazel - I have achieved a great deal." (Annette)
"I can't speak highly enough of her approach. Hazel challenges effectively, brings clarity and focus to each session. I came to the sessions with a broad subject matter. Hazel managed to work through issues quickly to gain an understanding of my operating context in order to facilitate the sessions.
"Hazel's coaching over the seven sessions has been brilliant. I have enjoyed the luxury of Hazel's calm manner, happy to listen to all aspects of my life. The process of closely examining important areas in my life has been valuable in making me appreciate what is good. Taking things that I am not happy about and working through ways to improve this has been fantastic.
"Hazel has really helped me with a number of goals, personally and professionally. I have been able to work through many issues through her coaching as well as other areas such as the Wheel of Life. This has been over a number of months and has had a very significant impact on my personal and professional development.
"I initially met Hazel through Kent Creative Live and was immediately impressed with her enthusiasm for her work. At the time, business coaching was something I had mostly negative experiences of. However, without forcing it on me, Hazel cajoled me into giving it another go, on the basis of it being one-to-one sessions with a particular emphasis on focus, which is something I had been struggling with at the time. I also mentioned that I needed someone to kick my butt when I didn’t quite managed to achieve my goals. Hazel does this, but you’d never know it! Our sessions were developed around the “why” rather than the “how”, which I found incredibly useful and motivational. It became apparent that Hazel is extremely knowledgeable and has a great way of allowing you to come up with the answers yourself. I always went away from a session feeling like I had a clear idea of what to do next, which for me, was a god send! If you’re looking for a professional, relaxed business coach who takes a genuine interest in your goals I would recommend Hazel wholeheartedly."(Richard Torble, Headshot and Portrait Photography)
