What my clients say about working with me as a coach and joining my workshops
"Jenny was a terrific coach with both a fun and warm approach. She really helped me get clarity on my career goals, and showed me where I needed to step up and where I needed to go a bit easier on myself. In the very competitive world of media, she is a rare thing - someone who really, genuinely wants to help others. I cannot recommend her enough."
Nichi Hodgson, broadcaster and author
"After a year of freelancing in a pandemic, I was definitely feeling ground down by it all. Jenny's course came at just the right time and was a real boost. I really looked forward to our weekly Zooms and she helped me hone in on the things that needed to change, as well providing a supportive listening ear and some wise words. I highly recommend her coaching to anyone who needs to put a spring back in the freelance step.
Rosie Hopegood, freelance journalist/writer
"I loved our 1:2:1 sessions. You provided a safe space for me to work things through and never told me what to do unless I agreed to having a suggestion. You set up each session well and I always felt safe and that I could trust you. I felt clearer at the end of the Relight your Freelance Fire programme and I really enjoyed being in a group with other people. It was useful to be able to share ideas and perspectives with others and remind myself that we all suffer from self doubt and uncertainty."
Sarah Henderson, freelance English teacher and language anxiety coach
"Coaching with Jenny has been far more than I expected. I thought I’d come away with practical tools - and I have - but, without even trying, our sessions have gone so much deeper, which allows me to do a bit of self-coaching in between, too. It’s fantastic that Jenny understands self-employed life because it means I don’t have to explain my lifestyle to her, she just gets it."
Paula, company director
"I’ve worked with coaches before on different areas of my life but never one focused specifically on work and I was keen to find someone who understood the specifics (and oddities!) of freelancing. Jenny fit the bill perfectly and it made a real difference not having to explain my situation as I imagine I would to a coach from a heavily corporate background. The sessions were so useful, helping me to dig beyond the surface of issues that I’d been sat with for months. With Jenny’s gentle support and encouragement, I gained clarity, insight and momentum and made far more progress than I’d imagined possible from six sessions."
