“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
