"Coach yourself with a Pen unlocked some quite profound revelations for me about what was going on inside my head and helped me identify some practical actions I could take to address a particular issue. Sessions with Claire are always a joy, always provide unexpected insight, and are always a great opportunity to explore interesting exercises in a supportive and encouraging environment." Annie P
"... The exercises built my team's confidence in reflecting, writing and sharing as the workshop progressed and every team member took valuable reflections away. Not only did each individual benefit, but we also did as a team and plan to continue our journaling at team meetings. A highly impactful session in a very short time - highly recommended to other teams looking for a deeper connection and a novel way to reflect and share. LP Regional Business Manager, UK, Global Pharmaceutical company.

Everyone enjoyed the session, it felt really inclusive and fun whilst also creating an environment where people felt confident to share and express their words. The end result was exactly what we had hoped for!” Manager, Fostering Network
