What clients say about Heli
“In a difficult work situation Heli coached me in my thinking process to find different alternatives. By asking the right questions at the right time she helped me break out instead of going in circles . With her experience and expertise Heli was able to bring an objective view into the situation and also give tools for me to find a solution. Building your competences and skills is a project of life and you should never stop doing it. I can warmly recommend Heli to coach you on this journey.”
Senior Marketing Manager, Global Telecoms
“When I first contacted Heli I felt fragile, prone to suggestion and almost burnt-out. Big things had happened and my life was in such a mess I couldn’t think straight or focus. Heli is encouraging, motivating and caring, and thanks to her I am feeling very confident that my life is now back in control. She also provided me with some simple tools to continue the self-development process and to slowly become my own coach.”
Senior Consultant, Global Management Consultancy
“Heli is patient and not soft. Personable and not afraid to challenge. Heli is reassuringly authentic and engaging. Her appreciation of coaching in the context of her established experience from a successful career enables you to pinpoint performance improvement, set bold and achievable goals and do so quickly. Her wider experience which includes an impressive international network, relieves any hesitation to hold back detail or context to the challenge. Heli therefore contributes as a trusted business adviser as well as coach to leaders.
Heli has enabled me to communicate more effectively during the start up phases of my ventures and build effective business partnerships. Heli has supported me making critical decisions about the direction of business interests and personal development. Coaching improves self-awareness and you need trust and candour for this, Heli is trustworthy and very capable.”
Creative Executive Director, Social Enterprise Ventures, UK & Cyprus
“Heli was excellent in getting to the heart of my career concerns and encouraging me to articulate what that means in terms of the next steps I need to take to change things. She was knowledgeable and helpful in this and provided me with a balanced view that I found extremely useful. I strongly recommend her.”
Specialist, Number 10 Downing Street, UK
“I sought out coaching because I have been “leaving the company” for two years now. When we started working together, I was sceptical of my own ability to stick with the process and turn my eternal introspection into action: I’d failed so many times on my own, why should this be any different. Heli has been perfectly positioned to coach me in finding new focus and fulfilment in my work. She has expertly helped open up knots in my thinking and emotions, allowing me to dig deeper for new behaviours and beliefs that are now giving me the results I want for my career and life. I can’t thank her enough and I highly recommend her coaching services!”
Online Privacy Specialist, Global Telecoms
“I wanted to work on something really big and important for me; my search for what will fulfill me in life. It has really made me examine the dilemma I have faced all my life; a tension between what I think I should do versus what I really want to do. I realize that I’ve often compromised my values and beliefs in choosing to do what I think I should do (or even worse what someone else thinks I should do) rather than doing what feels right for me.
Time to reflect during & between sessions has been a very useful part of the process. Thus specific insights were revealed to me, a greater awareness of who I am (my authentic self) and an understanding of what I want.
Be open with Heli, trust her and she’ll repay you with a mix of supporting and challenging questions to move your thinking forward and almost certainly your life.”
Product Supply Director, Global Pharmaceutical
“I wanted to learn more about myself and was also looking for better ways to communicate with those people in my business and personal life. Lots of awareness has helped and that has changed how I do things. I guess that I felt comfortable in your presence as I could identify with what you had experienced so I felt safe enough to talk to you about my own experiences.
I would say that you are sensitive, caring, and listen well, and that you are supportive in the transformative process.”
