Testimonials

Billie Lawler Leading the Community Supermarket project at CBC | Empower Women’s Networking- November 3, 2020, Billie was a client of Victoria’s

“I met Victoria when she gave a talk to a large group of women. She came across confident yet approachable and welcomed questions from around the room, engaging us all in an open discussion regarding menopause and other women’s health issues. Her knowledge was obvious as was her passion for better health for women. No one was made to feel awkward or silly for asking questions or for advice and all were put at their ease with laughter. Victoria knew when to add in a touch of humour to what is of course a serious topic and all present learnt things they did not know or maybe just didn’t understand. Thank you Victoria for one of the best talks I have attended for a very long time!”

“Tori was so understanding and easy to talk to, even on the more embarrassing subjects. I felt like I could talk to her about anything. Her vast knowledge is staggering. Within half an hour she had given so many little bits of advice, it was a good job she’d given me a pen and paper!

“Victoria is a pleasure to work with. Very caring, very attentive, she would do anything to make sure her clients receive all the attention they deserve. You couldn’t ask anything more from a health & wellness professional. I would definitely recommend her to any women entering menopause or perimenopause. Her knowledge on the subject is second to none.” SC July 2020

“Victoria’s approach to coaching makes for a delightful experience. Her calm & friendly manner helps you to explore the issues that you’re facing, without any fear of judgement. Everything was broken down easily to allow me to really see what I was dealing with, before putting plans in place to help address those issues. I have booked another group of sessions & 10/10 would recommend”. OP August 2019

“Victoria’s management skills are superb & she encourages those around her to thrive. Always approachable, Victoria shows compassion & understanding when dealing with clients whilst maintaining a professional approach. Her attention to detail ensures that her work is exemplary & she ensures the work of her team is of an equally high standard. A very innovative & conscientious worker that easily stands out head & shoulders above others”. Amy Corben-Hale May 2019

“When I started working in the NHS it was a case of doing the best I could in my role. Later on after 26 years in the NHS in various roles, I was introduced to the prospect of being coached. Through the early part of my coaching programme it became apparent that I was very naïve of my potential which meant that my focus in coaching was to explore my career surroundings as well as my non work lifestyle. Since my coaching has finished I have progressed my career and my lifestyle, which has meant that I have felt great satisfaction. Great Kudos to my coach mentor Victoria”. Colin Lakey August 2019

” I had the pleasure of working in the same office as Victoria. I observed her as a colleague, Leader, Coach & Mentor. It’s very rare you get to observe such integrity in an individual, she is meticulous, analytical, tenacious, empathetic, approachable, resilient in the face of adversity & her concern for her colleagues & team members & their well-being is admirable, we need more managers like Victoria. Victoria’s passion for coaching & mentoring is simply inspiring, she was always more than happy to assist me with my own team members with coaching & mentoring, it is clear this is her passion developing & supporting individuals to meet their full potential. I highly recommend Victoria as a colleague, manager, mentor or coach & I would be delighted to have the opportunity to work with her again”. Clare Oldman IT Service Desk Team Leader June 2019

 “Victoria also demonstrates compassion and empathy for others. Victoria is highly professional and a pleasure to work with.” Vicky Newbery June 2019

“Coaching with Victoria was a very positive experience. Victoria helped me to reflect & pinpoint what I wanted to do career wise as well as support me to more personal goals. The support & guidance she gave me helped to push myself to achieve things I thought were beyond me due to anxiety & depression. I worked with Victoria when she was my manager, the skills & confidence I gained while being coached by Victoria allowed me to begin a career I thought was beyond my reach. Victoria has a very kind & patient approach while still being able to provide the challenge I needed to break unhelpful patterns of thinking”. DTJ August 2019

“Throughout my career I have had numerous managers that provided feedback but Victoria goes that step further by opening my eyes to new ideas thus leading to new opportunities & bigger goal setting. I class Victoria as a friend as well as a previous work colleague who always had time for everyone and she always reacted in a calming professional manner. I would recommend Victoria to any potential new employer as they would be employing a great manager, team player & work coach”. CL May 2019

I have felt her calmness, emphatic & approachable style of management & her ability to adapt to complex & continuous change in times of uncertainty & change. Victoria is highly skilled in people development, quality assurance, project management, leadership & development. I would work with Victoria at any opportunity”. Becky Munuwa November 2018
