I was talking about my meeting with you and how much you have helped me. I remember our first session which was a year ago and I think how I was stressed, possibly depressed and cried my way through it! I think I have come a long way this year with your help, I am happier, I am clearer about my work goals and I am feeling much more in control of my life so thank you very much for helping me on that journey. I look forward to what is yet to come. Your help is greatly appreciated. S.C. – Bedford

I would highly recommend Liz to anyone who is running their own business, particularly people who are working on their own. Liz has a very warm, non-judgmental style which makes it very easy to talk through any areas of concern. Through her vast experience, she is able to talk through the problem with you and give a practical solution to help you to move it forward. She offers encouragement and points out your successes giving you the confidence to tackle any issues and move your business forward in a positive way. S.W. – Wellingborough
Spending time with Liz allowed me to really focus on a project which I had wanted to move forward for a while. Liz provided the space, time and focus I needed to talk through the project and identify actions I could take to move it forward. Liz quickly got to grips with my project, helped me realise how far I had already come with it and helped me explore different opportunities I hadn’t considered. Liz’s wealth of experience and knowledge helped bring a different perspective to something I had been mulling over for a while and I left with renewed enthusiasm and concrete actions to take which I know will help me achieve my goals.

I turned up for the session with an issue that I knew had a big underlying problem. Elizabeth immediately picked up on the fact that there was something we needed to sort out before tackling the problem itself but was clear that it was my decision which we talked about in the session. I didn’t know what to expect, but what I found was calmness, understanding and thoughtfulness coupled with a huge understanding of business development and a rather contagious drive to help me get the best results for my situation. All of which helped me put together a plan that worked wonderfully. C.S.- Rushden
I really enjoyed my session with Liz, it provoked thought and ideas about my business that I hadn’t considered before and has helped me to focus on how I can achieve my goals and targets, both in the short and the long term. Liz’s advice is well considered and objective and has pushed me to put some ideas into action. I came away feeling motivated and enthusiastic about the future of my business. C.H – Northampton
