“AMANDA IS DIFFERENT! With real skill and the utmost professionalism she practices a range of techniques which are geared to helping you achieve positive, quantifiable, results … quickly.
Immediately I met her I felt I was in a safe pair of hands. She has real empathy but is businesslike and determined that I get as much as possible from my one hour sessions with her.
I made progress very rapidly. She helped me identify priorities in key areas of my life (health, business, friends & family etc) and develop a structured approach to meeting the objectives I could then set myself. She also helped me to identify my strengths and how I could employ these to best effect
I unhesitatingly recommend Amanda, whether you are lost or not. Evaluating your life and refocusing on your future can be enjoyable and I truly believe you will be richer for the experience of meeting her”.
