Customer Testimonials

  • Marina is an amazing coach – she used some really interesting techniques with me to help unblock some deep fears I had been struggling with, and afterwards I felt so much more able to tackle the things that were holding me back. Her manner is so kind, supportive, gentle and positive – she literally radiates positivity and it really helps you feel safe to explore any issues and take steps outside your comfort zone. I highly recommend Marina to anybody wishing to change their lives for the better and finally break free of any old beliefs or baggage that might be stopping them from moving forward. Marina, thank you so much for everything!

    Alison Rentoul - La Colle sur Loup, Cote d’Azur

  • Coaching with Marina enabled me to accelerate the resolution of some difficult issues at work; stretching and supporting me to consider perspectives and take actions that I might not normally have taken. Marina's energy is infectious, motivating and encouraging and I have already seen the benefits in my leadership skills and the quality of my working life.

    Gill T - Senior Manager, Sheffield

  • I engaged with Marina before just opening my business to help me with the launch activities. She was energetic and genuinely interested in the success of making sure the start of the business was in a way that I could continue to grow and develop it. Without me knowing she steered me into exploring my own values and my business ethos and has helped me to continue on a pathway which I feel very at ease with now. This might mean it takes me longer to build it, but I am doing it with my own self beliefs in mind. I thoroughly enjoyed our sessions together and found her knowledgeable, empowering and motivating.

    Sharon S - Director, Chester

  • We hired Marina to present a mini workshop at a North Wales Women’s Network event and she was just brilliant. She energised the whole room and brought a mass of enthusiasm to the whole event. The feedback we gained from our delegates was excellent. In just 20 minutes Marina gave simple yet effective suggestions and solutions to start to be able to think more positively and become more confident. I would certainly hire her again.
