One to one and buddy coaching clients:

“I first came across Women to Work at their drop-in session in Sheffield. Talking through my business ideas with someone as encouraging and positive as Emma really gave me the motivation to move forward. Now, just three months down the line, I have a thriving business and a confident professional identity. I would recommend Women to Work as a sounding board for any new business start-up”. Jane, Sheffield

“Jenny’s mentoring has been absolutely invaluable for me. It have given me structure and focus and broken things down into manageable step-by-step work plans. Jenny is both inspiring and encouraging and working with her has made all my dreams and aspirations finally seem attainable. Can’t praise her enough.” Gina, Derbyshire

“I really enjoyed my coaching sessions with Emma.  I came to her whilst on maternity, as I was struggling to decide what route to take with my career.  Emma has helped me to focus on ambitious and realistic career goals, largely by giving structure to my decision making process.  I have been able to confidently put some ideas to bed, focus and move forward with my career!  Thank you Emma.” Nicola, Derby

“Jenny has come into my life and literally propelled me into focused, goal and action based progress. I feel clearer, more structured and ready to take on the world! Thank you! Jenny really understands the pressure and time limits of working mums. She has very cleverly and tactfully helped me shape my work-life balance into manageable, bite sized chunks where I feel and know I am constantly moving forward. Before I started working with Jenny I was a bag full of great ideas with no real structure so I always felt rushed, stretched and not as productive as I wanted to be. Now I am a different woman. Focused, clear and getting closer to my dreams every single day!” Rachael, Derbyshire

“Emma is professional, approachable and practical: a heady mix with a big dose of human thrown in. An inspirational person to work with. She gave me time to focus on myself during and following the sessions, and provided relevant practical tools and exercises that I’m sure will be just as useful in the future. I now have a sense of getting back to the ‘me’ identity that I had lost touch with and in fact I’m even finding the new and improved version!” Melissa, Nottingham

“Jenny was a great coach with a very practical and open-minded approach. I’d be very happy to recommend her to other women exploring their options.” Catriona, Sheffield

“Emma provided the most effective and inspirational coaching I have ever received. She sensitively and intelligently teased out deep-seated issues, helped me to address them, and guided me through how to move forward. This has fundamentally improved the way I perform in my role.” Tanya, Manchester

“I wholeheartedly recommend One to One Coaching with Jenny Pollock from Women to Work. It was invaluable to have the space and permission to explore where I am, what’s really important to me and how to move forward. I didn’t realise how ‘stuck’ I actually was, but with Jenny’s gentle guidance and challenge, I can now see clearly what I really want, where to go next, and how to make the first steps in achieving the balance in my life that’s been lacking. Thank you Jenny!” Sarah, Sheffield

“Emma is a good listener. She is empathic and able to trigger positivity and optimism. She helped me rejoin the workforce after my maternity leave feeling full of confidence.” Caroline, Sheffield.

“I’ve got a zillion ideas zooming round my head for my business but struggling to keep all the plates spinning and crystalise my ideas, and even after my first one-hour session with Jenny I had a lightbulb moment. Jenny funnelled my barrage of information, let me draw my own conclusions and sparked ideas. Couldn’t recommend her highly enough.” Jo, Sheffield

“As a coach Emma works hard to uncover the real situation and works in partnership to create options and solutions, where required. She is a great listener and really seems to understand me. Emma’s coaching has helped me to develop my career into an area of work which I love, she also helps me manage and balance my work with the demands of being a mum!” Vicky, Derbyshire
