“Selina pushed me in a direction I know I have wanted to go but have shied away from in the past. She was able to constantly challenge me through thoughts or actions, which I thoroughly enjoyed. At times throughout our coaching Selina was able to provide a train of thought which enabled me to express myself and also encouraged me to think outside the box.
As a result of the coaching I feel more measured and controlled in the workplace. I am more organized which is having an impact on the overall direction of our office and business. I have increased my confidence as I step further into my leadership role and feel like I deserve to be sitting in that position. I have increased my patience and positivity and now have a better understanding of those I work with and the career direction I wish to take.
Selina is a smart, caring, attentive person and has the qualities that allowed me to feel at ease and completely open to share my thoughts during the coaching program. One of the big positives for me was Selina’s ability to listen and her attention to detail.”

“Selina is an excellent coach. Not only did I come away from the coaching with excellent outcomes, I also enjoyed the sessions very much. Although dealing with conflict has always been an issue for me I am now more confident confronting difficult meetings and conversations in these often, awkward workplace situations. I now face conflict directly rather than putting it off in the hope the problem may solve itself. This has lead to more effective management and reduced problems.
I would definitely recommend Selina for management coaching and in particular individual coaching programs. I think any organization would benefit from relevant staff undertaking Selina’s coaching.”

“When coaching was first put forward to me I have to be honest and admit that I didn’t really understand what it entailed or how it would benefit me. I was sceptical to say the least! Having completed the coaching course I can truly say that my thinking or scepticism could not have been further from reality.
The coaching course is about YOU and making you a better version of yourself. The more you embrace the material the more you get out of the sessions. I learned more than just leadership skills, I learned skills which benefit me in everyday life and which I will always carry with me.
I would highly recommend the coaching to anyone thinking of doing it. I feel very comfortable with Selina she is brilliant, understanding very professional and non judgemental. I look forward to continuing my journey with Selina to explore more areas of myself.”

“Selina was able to identify particular challenges specific to my work and life context that pushed me outside of my comfort zone. She was able to provide a framework to help deal with the issues and a clear structure for benchmarking and assessing my personal performance through both reflective exercises and seeking external validation.
She challenged my worldview and contested my ideas in practical ways, which enabled me to evaluate the outcomes. I now have a better understanding of the importance of particular aspects of leadership and how to better align my values with my leadership style as well as the importance of the perception of leadership and how those being lead interact with their leaders. I gained a better understanding of my weaknesses and how to turn them into strength as well as determining what actually is or is not important.
Selina is friendly, personable non-judgmental and easy to establish rapport with; all, important aspects to a successful coaching relationship. She is knowledgeable in her areas of expertise and willing to share personal experiences and resources.”

“When I first started working with Selina I was facing a number of significant life changes and challenges, all culminating over a very short time frame.
Selina through her professional coaching ability was able to get me into a space where I felt completely at ease and present with myself. She helped equip me with the tools I needed to deal with a number of challenges both professionally and personally. She helped direct me in my understanding and appreciation of what I really wanted and needed to achieve in life. At the end of the day I was able to find balance in my work and home life.
During our coaching sessions Selina was extremely perceptive but always compassionate, displaying a professional approach to coaching every step of the way.
She has masterfully used her tenacity in combination with her coaching skill to help me take my professional life to the next level. With the various techniques she has shown me over the period of our coaching sessions, I have been able to apply these newly honed skills practically and now find myself adjusting my actions and modifying my behaviours for increasingly positive results on a day to day basis.”

My time with Selina was truly valuable; she has a superb ability to make you feel comfortable whilst encouraging you to reach your goals. Selina provided me with much clarity and confidence to balance my hectic work/life schedule. I gained insight in dealing with difficult staff issues and confidence in dealing with senior colleagues.
My line managers also had the pleasure of Selina’s coaching techniques, I observed an increase in their management ability and development of their own direct reports. Together they work more effectively and have developed assertiveness skills and greater confidence in dealing with senior stakeholders. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Selina – she is fabulous and I look forward to working with her again”

“Working with Selina has helped me to develop a much clearer vision for where I want my business to be and how I’m going to get there. Selina has helped me to identify the steps I need to take on this journey, and to develop strategies and tactics to keep me focused and on track. In every session, Selina has challenged me to question my assumptions and to reframe beliefs that were holding me back. She has also helped me understand my motivations more deeply, and to tap into these so that my actions are aligned with my values.”
