Past press coverage

“Taking the time out to focus on what I really, really want from a job and life is quite simply invigorating and I’m filled with a huge sense of ‘why on earth not?’….[After just one session with Joanne] my future feels like a blank canvas on which I can paint whatever I choose. I leave with a skip in my step taking in lungfuls of the change that’s suddenly blowing in the wind.”

The Guardian (click here for the full article)

(BTW this session was conducted ‘blind’ in that the journalist was under cover and didn’t reveal that this was for an article for The Guardian until the next day. Ask Joanne if you want to hear the full story – it’s a good ‘un!)


“[My sessions with Joanne taught me that] you can’t expect the landscape to shift overnight, but what’s crucial is to work out how you’d like things to look, and once you know, don’t ever lose sight of that vista.”
