Success Stories

We asked Jemma to deliver a number of workshops on Change and Resilience and also Emotional Intelligence as our institute was about to go through the process of merging two organisations. Our desired outcomes were to allow people to have their say about their feelings during this time of uncertainty. We wanted Jemma to give them effective tips on keeping morale up, understanding emotions in themselves and others and to be able to practice resilience in both their work and personal lives. The feedback to us from the groups has told us that these desired outcomes were definitely met. We have booked Jemma for further workshops.

"I was looking for a new job. After six months, and five interviews, I worked with Jemma as my coach. Our professional relationship allowed me to lay it all out on the table, and be honest with myself. We set time frames, and got clear on what I really wanted. After plenty of directed action, I secured a great job!. It still amazes me the difference it makes having someone help you put the steps in place."

"Over the past 14 months we have employed Headway Life Coaching to assist with the development of individual staff members and team building within our company.

Key to this successful staff development has been the ability of Headway to develop individual sessions to meet each and every staff member's requirements. Some of our staff lacked confidence whilst others had issues ranging from social issues to a lack of motivation.

We employ around 400 hundred seasonal staff each year and the development of key people to manage and assist this diverse group of seasonal employees is paramount to the success of our company.

As a company Aerocool's core values include the belief that better people deliver a better result and as such we are keen to assist with personal development wherever possible, Jemma has played and will continue to play a huge part in our success."
Richard Nicholson (General Manager, Aerocool, Te Puke)

"I have suffered from low self esteem and anxiety issues for a number of years. I had let this control my life and ultimately affect relationships with both family and friends. My work with Jemma has allowed me to explore my emotions and irrational thoughts and slowly my confidence has grown and I am able to break down my negative thoughts. Her constant support and intelligent insight have really made my life more positive and I feel like there is light at the end of the tunnel."
Lucy (Sales Account Manager, Full Colour, Manchester, UK)
