‘I found the 1-2-1 session really helpful in looking at my business from a new perspective and identifying new potential streams of income that I had not even considered. Lily quickly brought a marketing and commercial mindset to looking at ways of helping me achieve financial sustainability for my Social Enterprise. Straightaway I could see how developing this mindset myself would help me to improve my business strategy and development approach going forward’.

"The sessions with Lily was really helpful. She asked some challenging questions of what I'm doing and like a laser beam they got straight to the point. She reminded me of the importance of pitching my work as something that specifically addresses the needs of my potential clients rather than starting with an outline of what I do - that can come later. It was also great to get a different perspective on my work and some positive encouragement. Thanks to Lily's support I now have some clear things to do to keep my business on track and now it's just a question of doing them!"

I felt very comfortable discussing things with her and appreciated the safe space she creates. The overall outcome is very positive, and a useful experience and I'm very grateful that we made time for this!

I came to work with Lily with a myriad of issues, and straight away she helped me put things into context. I felt my plans were more organized and justified and dynamic after speaking with Lily on a weekly basis.
She witnessed my highs and lows, and I was able, to be honest with her and always felt I could be exactly where I was in my change process. She helped my understand my motivation deeper.
She demonstrated to be nonjudgmental and listen to all of my ideas with equal attention.
My sessions with Lily happened during the phone calls. Lily’s listening over the phone was great, leaving lots of spaces to absorb information. Lily’s voice is very pleasant and welcoming, as well as reassuring in a non-patronising way.
I would recommend Lily as a coach for the reasons mentioned above as well as because of her dedication to the process of change, genuine interest in the other person, and ability to ask some spot on questions.
