“Having the dedicated time and input just for me and my goals has literally been life-changing.”
With the help of Natasha and a rekindled, insatiable reading appetite I found myself on a pathway that had laid dormant for many years. The empathy and curiosity that Natasha demonstrates within the sessions are genuine and heartfelt and I feel incredibly lucky to have been one of her clients. I believe that I would’ve reached the point I’m at now myself, but it would’ve taken me years, not months. Having the dedicated time and input just for me and my goals has literally been life-changing. I feel I have a head start on what I want to do, and crucially a clearer picture of how that will look and feel.
“Her sessions and the other resources she’s suggested have led me to a far more powerful place where I’ve been able to find courage and inspiration and embrace my own passions and strengths.”
The coaching provided a valuable space to explore my leadership style and develop creative ways to support my team. Natasha’s coaching style is warm, energetic and supportive. She is also full of great ideas, suggestions for reading and personal development exercises. Her sessions and the other resources she’s suggested have led me to a far more powerful place where I’ve been able to find courage and inspiration and embrace my own passions and strengths. I always come away from her sessions energised and with lots of ideas and plans and have recently had a breakthrough which could send me on an exciting creative path.
“She has enabled me to unlock the entrepreneur within me.”
I have benefitted enormously from my sessions of coaching with Natasha as I establish a brand-new career direction as a freelance artist/illustrator and set up a business. Natasha has given me an invaluable space to develop, evaluate and implement my emerging plans as well as a wealth of her own professional knowledge and experience. She has enabled me to unlock the entrepreneur within me, and to tread the fine line between having clear plans to give me clarity and purpose and, on the other hand, the space to follow my instincts and be open to new ideas and opportunities.
“Her calm, positive approach and her knack of asking just the right questions has enabled me to untangle my options and move forward with confidence.”
Being coached by Natasha has been a real turning point for me. Working with her has helped me to find clarity about what I want to achieve and create a practical plan to make it happen. Following a career break I had found myself floundering – keen to take my professional life in a new direction but overwhelmed by the possibilities. After six sessions with Natasha I feel back in control of my career. Her calm, positive approach and her knack of asking just the right questions has enabled me to untangle my options and move forward with confidence.
“Natasha encouraged me and gave me the confidence to steer my creative business in the right direction and to make a long term plan for it to flourish.”
After working in an office job and feeling frustrated that I wasn’t able to utilise my creative skills, I finally took the plunge and went freelance back in 2016. I booked some coaching sessions with Natasha in 2018 when I was teetering on the edge of pursuing the photographic side of my business. I really looked forward to our inspiring and info-packed coaching sessions. Natasha encouraged me and gave me the confidence to steer my creative business in the right direction and to make a long term plan for it to flourish. Building my business has been an incredible learning curve, but I have never looked back. I’m so proud to now shoot and style for a variety of clients and small businesses. If you’re procrastinating about which direction to take your business in and how to go about it, I would highly recommend booking some coaching sessions with Natasha!
“She modelled a growth mindset, provided an external perspective on my situation and the regular sessions allowed me to process thoughts and revisit themes across a number of weeks.”
Having worked in education for almost a decade I found myself considering applying for a new leadership role. This was in part a natural progression but also presented a significant step up in responsibility, accountability and a change in the way in which other people would see and interact with me. Natasha helped me process these ideas, prioritise what was important, gave me a space to talk about my goals and to consider what could be possible. Most importantly she modelled a growth mindset, provided an external perspective on my situation and the regular sessions allowed me to process thoughts and revisit themes across a number of weeks. I would thoroughly recommend her coaching to anyone who is considering a new challenge.
“Natasha’s coaching has been instrumental in helping me achieve my goals and set me on a path which has already begun to unearth rewards.”
This year has been a pivotal one for both my businesses, and Natasha’s coaching has been instrumental in helping me achieve my goals and set me on a path which has already begun to unearth rewards. Having reached a time of expansion in both businesses, Natasha’s calm and objective approach helped me map out the possibilities for both brands, prioritise action points and create a distinction between the businesses that has been invaluable in moving them both forwards. Her skill at working with people to bring out their best, and expert questioning, has given me the confidence to embrace and implement this exciting new time for both brands.
“My new found confidence, realisation and action plan have changed my life, helping me believe in myself to move my ambitions forward.”
Natasha was definitely a lifeline during a period when I was feeling like my direction needed defining. I was in a transition between moving on from an old career as a PR I’d carved over 20 years, to a brand new one as an illustrator, that has always been with me, but something I always felt was too competitive, non-lucrative and something others wouldn’t take me seriously for. Natasha helped me realise my gift that I’d left dormant due to my doubts, she brought back a strong belief within me, took me seriously and showed me that actually my past as a PR would help me move forward as an illustrator. My new-found confidence, realisation and action plan have changed my life, helping me believe in myself to move my ambitions forward. I don’t think ‘Thank You’ is a big enough statement to express the enormity of my gratitude.
“We talked about how to use my skills and talents as a creative to stand out in the marketplace, and I left feeling inspired and motivated, raring to get started.”
Before I started working with Natasha I was in the dark about how to use a blog to promote my business. The technical aspects were daunting, and I wasn’t sure where to start. I felt like I could spend days reading articles on the internet and still be confused about what I should be doing. The biggest thing I got out of working with her was a sense of clarity and confidence that I was on the right track and doing the right thing. She answered all my questions about blogging, gave me so many technical hints and tips, and showed me how to optimise my posts to get the biggest reach and engagement. We talked about how to use my skills and talents as a creative to stand out in the marketplace, and I left feeling inspired and motivated, raring to get started. I feel so excited knowing I’ve gained the wisdom of over 10 years of experience in one afternoon, it’s absolutely invaluable! Natasha is an inspiring coach and her passion for marketing and online content creation is infectious. If you’re curious about how to use a blog to promote your business, book in with her today, her knowledge is worth its weight in gold!
“In addition to raising my Instagram game, I managed to secure some regional press coverage for my first exhibition, which increased footfall and sales.”
2019 proved to be a significant and exciting year for me with a number of solo art exhibitions. Having been invited to exhibit making the new work was the easy part, but I felt clueless about how to market myself and to make the most of the opportunities a public ‘real life’ platform provided me with. With Natasha’s support, I was able to explore a range of ideas and opportunities for marketing beyond plodding away on Instagram! I realised I already had a lot of the answers, but working on my own I hadn’t been able to access them – the coaching enabled me to do this. In addition to raising my Instagram game, I managed to secure some regional press coverage for my first exhibition, which increased footfall and sales. I went into the planning phase for my second exhibition feeling organised and confident. This enabled me to present myself to the venue in a highly professional manner. Thanks to the coaching, I feel so much more confident that I can be proactive and work towards my goals in a way I find manageable and one that suits my style of working!
“Following some really interesting discoveries, I’ve been inspired to make some positive changes in my work.”
Having worked freelance for 20 years, I was excited to spend some time with a creative business coach. I wanted to consider the work I do and my future business plans. Natasha’s coaching sessions were extremely insightful and yielded some surprising results, including a few things I hadn’t consciously thought about before. Following some really interesting discoveries, I’ve been inspired to make some positive changes in my work. It was time well spent, and I would highly recommend working with Natasha.
“She helped me develop a business marketing plan which has turned my business around.”
I set up a new blog to go alongside my wedding photography business and to be honest, I was nervous about doing it ‘right’. Natasha gave me the confidence I needed and guided me into seeing the simplicity of it all (I was over-complicating it at the time!). She started by sharing some simple blog ideas and SEO techniques and then helped me develop a business marketing plan which has turned my business around. After our initial sessions that sent me flying, I now book her in every now and then to put me back on the right track and help me stay focused. It is such a blessing to be working with a creative business coach who really gets me and my business.
“Since working with Natasha, I have exhibited my first collection of poetry and I am pursuing my dream of working for myself as a creative practitioner.”
I got in touch with Natasha at what turned out to be a pivotal time in both my personal and professional life. I was looking to make a change and take the plunge into a freelance, more creative career and Natasha helped me to explore what made me happy and authentic both at work and at home. Our sessions were personalised, and I benefited from the exploratory period as well as accountability to follow through on plans. Natasha is a very skilled and potentiating coach. She listens really well and made me feel valued and that my creative voice was something to be celebrated. Since working with Natasha, I have exhibited my first collection of poetry and I am pursuing my dream of working for myself as a creative practitioner which combines my creative, coaching and writing skills in ways I never found possible in a more conventional career. I would thoroughly recommend Natasha – she has given me the confidence and courage to mentor myself with kindness rather than caution.
“Natasha helped me get under the skin of my goals, understanding what my immediate next steps were and forming a plan for moving things forward.”
Natasha helped me get under the skin of my goals, understanding what my immediate next steps were and forming a plan for moving things forward. She has a supportive and focused attitude which helps pull everything together – can definitely recommend.
“I went into the meeting with a head full of ‘to do’ lists and a flurry of project ideas, and came out with focus and direction.”
I found my coaching session with Natasha to be a really positive experience. I went into the meeting with a head full of ‘to do’ lists and a flurry of project ideas, and came out with focus and direction. Over the next weeks and months, I will be putting a plan into practice and am excited to see where it leads. Natasha’s coaching style is very supportive, helping you lead yourself in the right direction, mentally decluttering as you go. Her experience with the blogging community also helped me to benchmark and value our own offering.
“Natasha calmly reflected back my thoughts to guide me towards seeing the wood for the trees regarding my career path.”
I loved the way Natasha calmly reflected back my thoughts to guide me towards seeing the wood for the trees regarding my career path. She also provided me with detailed notes and reading recommendations to help me identify actionable changes.
“I have very much enjoyed my coaching experience and have found it to be very beneficial.”
Having never had any form of coaching before, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I had been looking for a coach for a while but had not felt comfortable with some of the intense styles that some coaches seemed to employ. Having recently been through quite a difficult time, I was looking for some positive encouragement and someone to help me untangle my thoughts and keep me accountable and moving forward. With Natasha, I have very much enjoyed my experience and have found it to be very beneficial. Natasha’s style is calm and gentle but she is ready to help push you a little more if needed, but with you very much in the driving seat. I will be continuing to have sessions with Natasha in the future, to help me achieve my goals.
