A review by Terry H Elston

Yvette is not just a very capable Practitioner of NLP, but also a lovely person as well. This comes across the way she will work with you - thorough and cuts out the dross, but with a welcome smile that allows you to know you are taken care of as you challenge your boundaries, to change.

Come thoroughly recommended.

A review by Nadine Edwards

I worked with Yvette to help set up my new business. The coaching received was indispensable as it provided me with the tools to clearly know where I was going with my business and how to get there in the best possible way specifically for me. Her compassionate coaching also enabled me to overcome my fears and anxiety, and in particular give me the confidence I needed to believe I could succeed.

A review by Darren Diprose

Yvette possesses all of the core qualities that I look for in a coach. She has a natural curiosity and this helped to put me at ease when working with her. I found her to be entirely present and attuned to what I was sharing with her. She has a gentleness and sensitivity which helps to relax you and enable you to open up. I would wholly recommend anyone looking for a coach to work with Yvette. She helped me around issues with my children and it’s made a real difference in my life.
