Here's what our clients have to say about us
Thank you very much for the brilliant support that I’ve received over the last few months. I came with a very negative and self-deprecating mindset and thought very much about what I couldn’t do. I thought that dyspraxia was very limiting and I was quite depressed about the things that I couldn’t do especially with regard to remembering information and self-confidence.
I discovered that my visual memory is actually really good and that even after the space of a couple of months, I can still remember the objects that I was tested on. It was from then that I started to feel more confident and having learnt about reframing, I was then able to remember things a little better as I wasn’t putting pressure on myself to remember. I definitely feel more confident now as I understand and celebrate my strengths more and I am able to be more positive about myself and my disability. I see dyspraxia as a strength now as I know I can see things in a different way.
You’ve been so encouraging and really helped me to understand my strengths and not to put such a big emphasis on my weaknesses. Thank you very much!
My Genius Within coach was there for me at a very difficult time. She helped me to believe in myself and supported me in challenging myself to succeed at work. Her listening ear, solution focused problem solving and dynamic can-do culture has helped me to achieve outstanding results at work when, before I started working with her, I was about to resign. I feel privileged to have such exceptional support.
I Immediately felt relaxed and free to discuss my concerns and difficulties. My Genius Within coach had a great gift for finding a strength in someone and making it work to support any areas of weakness.
At no time did I feel unsupported or stupid in asking questions.
Every session was utilised fully, we seemed to have a natural flow of
what to cover, how to make it work and what to expect next time.
This has certainly been a life changing experience for me, I feel much
more confident and have been able to pass on these skills and
techniques to my daughter who also has Dyslexia.
“Up until the point of my assessment I’d always seen my Tourette’s, ADHD, OCD, sensory processing as a big hindrance in my life, my life was chaotic. I had very low self-esteem. After having the assessment and finding out the results, I just really wish that I could have done that when I was a lot younger! It helped me to understand myself and to see what direction I should be going in. And since the assessment, many, many doors have opened to me. Now I carry my diagnosis with pride, and my neurodiversity.”
