Leanne (30), Holistic Counsellor, London – 2017
Working with Agatha has been a transformational period in my life. The most noticeable changes have been the shifting of my mindset, finding a new awareness of my environment & relationships, dealing with my ego and best of all my revived outlook on life. I now understand my emotions and have set healthy boundaries for myself. Agatha created a safe, professional and authentic space for me to come into my own. It has been a truly unique experience and I’m very grateful for the impact she has made and the way she has changed mine and so many other people’s lives. She is a phenomenal woman! Thank you so much.

Before I began working with Agatha, I lacked self-confidence which often affected my social life along with my education as I would shy away from discussion in lessons. This low self-esteem had a ‘multiplier effect’, constantly getting worse due to my lack of self-belief effectively stopping me from trying to fix it, therefore slowly making me feel more and more inferior to others and creating more negative thoughts. The main challenge I faced was to try and gain some belief in myself and try to move forward in my life, leaving behind this negative cycle of self-hatred in the process.
Speaking to Agatha, I have developed a level of control regarding my negative thoughts and feelings towards myself, and I am now able to keep them at bay far easier. I also feel much better about myself, and have learnt to appreciate myself for who I am. I would also say I have a far better insight into the causes and reasons for my negative mindset prior to working with Agatha, and have since been actively working to remove them from my life and replace them with more positive thoughts.
I have continued to make great strides in my mental and physical well-being since working with Agatha. My state of mind has completely changed – I have gone from someone whom would often dwell on the negatives in life to someone who is constantly trying to improve their quality of life through building on these negatives and focusing on the positives. I have since set many goals for myself which I now strive to try and meet – this has given me some direction as to what I want to do and has since made me more determined and focused on improving myself.

After a very turbulent year, where I had experienced so many changes I was really struggling to not only adapt to my new lifestyle, but accept the changes for myself. My self confidence was at an all time low, and I decided to reach out for some guidance in the form of a life coach. Agatha’s approach was a mixture of counselling and coaching which was the perfect combination for me. Within our first session I realised that my focus still needed to be on counselling, and only then would I be able to reach the goals I had set for myself. Her kindness and understanding lead me to accept my new circumstances, and as we continue to work together I am now embracing these changes in life.
Agatha’s approach is incredibly kind and understanding. There is no judgement even when we so often judge ourselves. She encourages me to always be kind to myself, in my thoughts, my attitude and my awareness. The weekly emails, and goals set after every session enable me to keep a focus even when I’m feeling very disoriented. Her encouragement and belief in my ability has enabled me to reach for goals I had only dreamed of.
When I met Agatha I was incredibly scared and vulnerable. I was surrounded with negativity and was in desperate need to break the cycle. Through her words of kindness, her own personal journey and motivation I now look back at the start of our coaching, six months ago and am so amazed at how far I have come. Naturally there are periods of regression, however these are often met with a session of counselling instead of coaching which enables me to receive the support needed. The life skills I have learnt over the last six months are tools which I will carry for the rest of my life. My gratitude to Agatha, and the progress we have made is hard to measure. If you are facing a situation or period in your life which feels never ending, pick up the phone and reach for help. Agatha’s approach literally saved me, for that I will be eternally grateful.

My main challenge was I lacked self-confidence. My biggest insight that Agatha had taught me early into our process was my posture and how I carried myself. I can’t believe the difference between how I would walk before and how I walk now. When sitting down and talking I would not make eye contact and would sit armed crossed in a way that would make anyone talking to me feel uncomfortable or that I have no interest in what they have to say.
So power posture and making eye contact were insights that shocked and changed things for me almost instantly. Once I started acting on this. Others would be self-love and the way I speak to myself and a general positive outlook on life. This has made massive improvement on me and I now see life so different!
Chloe (28), PA to HNWI, London, 2016
A few months ago I was going through an extremely low and difficult period in my life, where I was feeling depressed and unhappy on a daily basis. I have never experienced therapy or coaching before. Upon meeting Agatha the first time I instantly felt this was a person whom I could trust and completely open up to.
Throughout my sessions I felt I was in a totally safe non judgmental environment which made me feel very comfortable in discussing some of the issues that had brought me to therapy. I felt completely listened to and was made to feel better by being assured I was not alone in the way I had been feeling or in the issues I was dealing with.
Agatha taught me some extremely useful tools on how to deal with situations in the future and she gave me back my sense of self confidence and self worth. After my time with her I came away from each session feeling so much better than when I went in. My time with Agatha changed my entire outlook on my life and I honestly feel she brought me back to being the old me. Thank you again and all the best.

Aggie, you are an inspiration to all who meet you, as enthusiasm flows from you like water flows from a waterfall. When you spoke about starting up a Happiness Club in Jersey last year, I wondered how it would unfold, and if it meant everyone had to be happy all the time to keep attending. Well, what I learnt from you was that even on days when the sun wasn’t shining quite so brightly inside or out, there was still a choice to look beyond the clouds and to stretch our fingers out towards the happiness which was waiting just beyond that cloud.
By sharing positive affirmations we were able to change the thought and thus, change the feeling. You had the skills and the ability to facilitate that group process. I’m so pleased to hear you will be continuing your teaching now you are living in London. Thank you for bringing people together in such a gentle and yet vibrant way!
