"Trudy listens carefully and without judgement. She is interested in what I have to say and is patient when I am not able to express myself succinctly. She has the ability to summarise clearly what I have discussed and reflect it back to me so that I can see more clearly where I need to focus my attention. Her calm and friendly yet precise approach means I can allow myself to let my ideas flow freely, knowing that the most important aspects will not be lost, but will become the stepping stones towards further insight". Chris T. Director Higher Education.
"I had lost my mojo at my current employer and wanted to change my career to have a more fulfilling job. But I didn’t know where to start. Trudy has given me the great direction to discover my options through personal preferences. As a result of the workshops I discovered ways of working through my likes and skills. How to think and look deeper inside my personality to understand where do I want to head my career. The best thing about the workshops was the Nuggets Exercise, although it was hard sometimes to have instant thoughts, but eventually everything came together and I understand myself better now. Three other benefits that I’ve enjoyed as a result of the workshops : SWOT analysis, Roles and Values Grid, the Visualisations. I would recommend the Reinventu™ workshop to everyone, it has opened a different perspective of ways of looking at a new career. It helped me to discover new things about myself. It is great value for money". Elena Eton. Fleet Sales Manager at Zebra Fuel.
I had had some coaching through my employer but I was still having difficulty dealing with conflict at work and with handling aggressive colleagues. I was bowled over by all I got out of the assertiveness coaching - it was a complete mindset change. I now have deeper insight into how I behave at work and I also understand my colleagues better. I've learned to set boundaries, say no and negotiate for what is important to me. I'm less stressed because I know that I have a variety of ways to handle the types of situations that I found very difficult before. Alan K. Project Director Construction.
Trudy provided me with one to one coaching for a period of several months while I was struggling to work out how to move forward beyond a very unhappy work situation. I found Trudy's approach to be extremely useful - to the point where I reached the conviction to leave my job and take on a project which really excited me. In particular the visualisations of a new and different future that Trudy helped me form were very powerful. I have not looked back - and I would highly recommend Trudy to anyone else who needs support in making a big change in their lives! Karen Smith Managing Director International Agribusiness
I was just starting out with my business and needed someone to hold me accountable to my own goals and keep me engaged with the end goal/ bigger picture when times get tough. I found that by working with Trudy I gained and maintained momentum with the early stages of my business. She also really helped me realise what the cost of giving up my dream by not pursuing my business would actually be. From that point, there was no turning back. Trudy is friendly but can challenge when needed. She makes the technology work also so whilst I had some reservations about remote coaching it really worked. Other benefits of the coaching with Trudy: Greater confidence in my own ability. Increased resilience and I’ve learnt to stick with it, even when times were tough and now I’m hooked. I’m now running a business with real clients. I’d say to anyone considering coaching with Trudy “I think coaching is a personal endeavour but if you are looking for a no nonsense coach, who has knowledge and experience, patience and wisdom, then you'll likely make great progress with Trudy”.

"Thoroughly recommended and good value for money. We discussed several topics over the 6 monthly sessions with four of them 1:1 by Skype. It was an invaluable experience which was aimed personally at me and developing my specific business. On the last session we concentrated on my presentation skills and I left the course oozing with confidence! Many thanks Trudy!" Dr Gina Rossdale-Smith.
