Testimonials from a coaching client: “I have just completed a 6-week coaching programme with Marsha, and I would highly recommend this service. The process was very well structured, enjoyable and challenging. Marsha is easy to talk to and has encouraged me to tackle difficult questions. She has helped me to identify where my skills lie and how to communicate my strengths in different ways. At a time when I was losing confidence, I come away feeling stronger and excited about where I want to go next.”
