Some thoughts from my clients……
“Hana is friendly, kind, very approachable and down to earth. I really enjoyed working with someone who wasn’t a direct part of my friendship group or family, this helped me find a different perspective on several aspects of my life.
Hana is a fantastic listener and I found her reflection questions super valuable. She’s not afraid to give you time to just think and process your thoughts, in fact I think this is half the magic – her sessions give you time for all the dust (thoughts, ideas, concerns) in your head to settle.
Hana doesn’t tell you what she thinks you want to hear or what to do, but instead helps you find clarity for yourself which gave me a real sense of ownership and direction. In particular, I really valued the summary emails she sends after each meeting – in fact, I still refer back to them today.
I feel like Hana has helped me realise that, often, all the wisdom I need is already within me. But that, sometimes, we just need that helping hand (someone just like Hana) to help us find it.”
“I was recommended Hana by a friend when I was feeling a bit ‘stuck’ in my career, dealing with a few issues and slightly wondering about life.
I really enjoyed working with Hana, found her very helpful and, in particular, liked her open approach which made me feel that I could really talk to her about anything. She helped me think through things in a very clear way and encouraged me to analyse my position, not just based on how I felt, but from a values and goals perspective as well.
After four or five sessions I was a lot clearer about my path, my current position and my approach. She helped me see the big picture rather than focusing only on small issues that sometimes cloud my thinking.
I continue to turn to Hana now when I want to talk things through with someone trusted but independent and she is always thoughtful, patient and responsive in her approach.
One happy customer!”
“I found myself in a bit of a mental rut. I’m active, eat quite well, don’t really do much in excess but felt out of control and anxious about life in general, I could not really put my finger on it…to anyone else, life was good but I was really struggling. My closest friend had worked with Hana and recommended I speak to her to see whether it was something that she could help me through.
The sessions with Hana made me realise the power of saying it out loud, to a stranger (a lovely stranger) – someone who was not going to judge me or tell anyone, someone who I could bounce every idea off and tell every irrational thought to.
Hana helped me work through the block, we broke it down – it all came down to my perceived lack of control over certain areas of my life. She helped me see that, in fact, my thoughts control my actions and therefore I am in control of the way I think and the way I live my life – and that realisation, in itself, made me feel so much better and more positive about things. After every session she sends me an email which summarises what we’ve discussed and the actions I’ve agreed to – essentially a little toolbox to refer back to for strategies to adopt when it all gets a bit much. Even after completing a group of sessions, I still refer back to these emails and find them invaluable.
I still send her the odd message if I need a bit of a boost! It’s a wonderful support knowing that I can get in touch and book another session whenever I need it. I’ve recently started a set of podcasts on her recommendation so the impact is ongoing and I also receive her monthly newsletter which always resonate with me and the way I’m thinking.
I saw Hana on recommendation and I have just recommended her to another very close friend. We spend so much time, money and effort prioritising our physical health that our mental health arguably takes a back seat. Hana showed me that they are both incredibly important for a happy and balanced life. If you have trouble dealing with things, choosing to do something about it is so positive and empowering and I cannot recommend Hana more highly.”
“I love working with Hana. She understands what it’s like to make a positive change in your life and follow your dreams because she’s lived it herself. She carries great experience. She’s authentic as well as great fun to work with and highly supportive. If you want to make some changes in your life, get Hana on board and make them happen.”
“Having worked in the same organisation for 15 years I have reached a point where I would like to try something new and so have started working with Hana to help me carve out a new career. In our first session Hana helped me to articulate what I need from work and what my priorities are – for me these are being able to balance work and family, challenging my brain and also doing something that is of benefit to others. We have then gone on to explore in more detail a number of different options and she has provided both a supportive and challenging environment to do this. In addition to coaching, Hana has also giving me some personal training which has helped me to improve my fitness and also set myself some fitness goals, such as improving my speed in a 5k race. Hana brings a sense of fun to each session and I cannot recommend her highly enough to people who are looking to make a real shift in their lives.”
“I work in a professional services firm and hadn’t taken enough time out as I became more senior to ensure I was working on my personal development – I’d been on the usual courses but they didn’t quite hit the spot. I was being faced with new situations like chairing large meetings, dealing with senior executives and providing leadership to teams. Being fully competent at my job, yet being of a more reserved character I knew I wasn’t performing as well as I could and, vitally, that I needed to crack this given my career ambitions. I worked with Hana for six sessions over a period of three months and found her coaching invaluable. My confidence increased and I found I was equipped to deal competently with workplace situations which I had previously found testing. The key thing that differentiates Hana’s coaching is that it has stayed with me long after our sessions finished. Hana’s coaching was instrumental in securing an important promotion at work and subsequently a brand new job.”
