"Jessica did a fantastic job at making me feel positive and confident about my upcoming audition. By mixing humour with a well thought out method I now feel excited about an experience that initially terrified me. I feel totally supported by Jessica and feel she has enabled me to get the best out of myself using a few clear, simple and practical techniques. My preparation for my audition has been transformed and I now feel that I am achieving more positive results in a shorter space of time."

Julian West Oboist/ Creative Leader

"Jessica's calm and insightful work has given me the opportunity to examine various different areas of my life, and to re-evaluate my beliefs about myself. The sessions I have had with her have enabled me to make new choices for myself about my priorities, both in terms of my career and in my personal life."

Jon Jacob, BBC

"…attentive listener, riveted detachment and incisive questions, reflected in the fact that at no point did I question the idea of standing in a road in the drizzle imagining my boss stood in front of me." -See Jon on Twitter

Ruth Davies, RLPO

"Jess has proved to be an invaluable support. I feel that she has an empathy and insight into my own, particular situation. Her guidance has proved invaluable as she gives practical support, almost like having a script or tool kit. I only wish I had found her sooner!"

Rebecca Whitehouse, student

"Preparing for my diploma was a daunting prospect, as all I knew was that I wanted to get a pass, but I was stuck as to how I should approach the preparation for it. Jessica helped me to work out what I needed to do in order to feel confident about it, by helping me organise and write down all that needed to be done. This proved to be extremely useful, as I had an efficient timetable that was designed around each day so nothing was missed. As well as practical preparation, discussion of the various outcomes and how to deal with it if it didn't go the way I wanted it to, helped to put me in a more positive frame of mind. By the day of my diploma, I knew I had done all that I could and I was confident that the worries I first had such as my stamina lasting, were no longer worries, and I actually enjoyed the entire performance!"
