Client Testimonials

testimonial Maya Gudka executive coach.w

Difficult career choices:

“Our last week’s session was amazing, I really thought it has helped me in confirming that I am doing the right thing albeit it isn’t the easiest thing to do. It has definitely also helped me to understand that in order to make the right decision in terms of career move, I first need to get away and give myself some time to understand what I really want”.

testimonial from coaching sessions with


“My partner is so happy since we talked! We had a good talk about the possible strategies you and I agreed. He was so positive after. We talked through the impending foreseeable stresses and how to manage them. Thanks so much, the session was so helpful . Lots of very helpful things put into practice so far . You are extremely perceptive and have such a good understanding of people and relationships! Instead of me thinking ‘I must try harder’, you have changed it to ‘we must both allow ourselves to..’ – game changer!"
