“Receiving coaching from Helen has been the most important leadership development support I have received in my career. She has supported me throughout my progression into senior leadership and my work in a challenging, complex and often chaotic health care system. Helen’s approach, skills and knowledge are simply transformational."
"The work Helen has done was instrumental in creating organizational change, including creating a “coach like culture” for my team. Helen brings a combination of strengths: group facilitation, leadership training and staff development planning, and powerful one-on-one coaching for success."

"Coaching with Helen always leaves me in a place where I am reminded of the best parts of myself, feeling excited, energized and confident while seeing directions or possibilities I hadn't considered on my own. Intuitive, warm and insightful, she can somehow challenge me and make me feel grounded all at the same time."
"When it comes to coaching, Helen is a natural! Having engaged her several times over the years, her genuine interest in me shines through. Helen challenges me with tough, insightful questions that help me see things through a different lens but at the same time she helps me keep a perspective that is consistent with my values.
