We are incredibly proud of what our clients achieve – the best way to explain that is through their testimonials so, in their own words…
Working with Rachel at Energise not only helped me discover my true calling for a complete career change, but also taught me much more about myself than I had anticipated. Rachel’s practical exercises, questions and steps prepared me for eventually taking the leap.
Rachel’s approach was what I was looking for in a business coach: helping me identify what I wanted, creating the blueprint to do it, and then holding me accountable for taking action. But the best part was that I learned tools and skills that I still use daily in many aspects of my life, not just my career.
Rachel helped me over the course of 18 months to be able to understand what I was really about and to align my energy and effort to make many of those longings a reality in my life. The insights I gained during that time of coaching continue to impact my life today.
Decisions like wanting to work from home to make more time for my young family flow from many of the insights gained from coaching.
I do feel like more of the important stuff within me has been liberated, hopefully for the good of others and I also feel a deep sense of peace and contentment too. http://safehousesounds.co.uk/ is one example of what coaching has liberated me to achieve.
Energise helped me to take stock and review and evolve my business focus making it fit for purpose for the future. Coaching gave me fresh clarity, new insights and focus. Time is precious and it makes sense to get expert support to achieve results faster than is possible by yourself. Rachel is professional, focused, insightful, results based and cares about my professional success and personal fulfilment. Coaching was worth every penny.
I worked with Rachel earlier this year when I was going through a major career change and in the process of setting up my new business. She knew exactly the kinds of issues I was dealing with and her vast experience in this area meant we could quickly focus on those areas which needed most attention for me.
It's great working with someone who can offer you the perspective you need and thanks to her I was able to make a smooth transition to my new career and take with me practical marketing and networking tools to get my business off the ground.
Thank you Rachel for giving Digital Dragonfly its wings to fly!
Rachel has helped me to stay on track, championing me, celebrating the successes and helping me to believe that my vision was possible, plus identifying ways around the inevitable obstacles that have been in my path.
Transitioning from the public to private sector can feel daunting and Rachel helped me to see how marketable I am, to define my niche and target audiences and how to network and market myself to achieve my career ambitions. She also helped me increase my self-awareness about what I really wanted, see actual and perceived blocks in the way of success and how to overcome them.
She reminds me of my achievements when I forget and has introduced me to some really useful contacts and resources. It is great to know that she is there for my next career crossroads and I know she always thinks about how she can help me.
Coaching is a great investment in your prospects, even more so in competitive market conditions, and I am glad I made it.
Rachel is one of those rare people that provides fantastic counsel, guidance and insight while avoiding corporate or consultant speak. She is honest, professional and extremely experienced in her field.
She is in it for the journey, always checking in and nothing is too much of a problem for her, I cannot recommend her enough.
I suspect she must be one of the prime movers and shakers in her industry – the complete package.
I got in touch with Rachel at a crossroads in my self-employed career. I had run my own businesses since college for close to a decade, was successful and ran a profitable business and wanted to take stock of where I was going, what my values and strengths were and what motivated me now. Coaching with Energise enabled me to reflect, gave me clarity, confidence and a structure to make positive moves forward.
I feel a renewed sense of purpose, am re-energised and connected to an evolved business focus that better fits me and my personal needs and wants. Coaching has been very valuable and helped me to make the changes I knew I needed and wanted to make.
Rachel is very positive, supportive and insightful. Her techniques are powerful and thought provoking and really hone in on the subject at hand. Her service is very personalised and she always follows up on her promises made in the coaching sessions, which really helps gain trust and breeds a mutual respect. I’m continuing to work with Rachel and find it invaluable to have time in the diary to focus on the business, professional success and personal fulfilment with a supportive and confidential sounding board. If you are a business owner who’s considering changes to the future of your business, Energise will give you the space and time to focus and think through the changes you choose to make.
Rachel has been coaching me for the last few months fully supporting and encouraging me to move on to new opportunities. She has been a tower of strength, giving clear and comprehensive tools to identify my skills.
She enables her clients to understand their abilities and develop their skills which gives them a powerful direction for their new enterprise. She also has an extensive knowledge and understanding of lawyers abilities and the possibilities for them in the future job market. She has the unique ability to look ahead for exciting new opportunities while most lawyers will look back at the traditional roles.
During the coaching and even when it is finished, Rachel puts her clients in touch with valuable contacts, makes introductions whenever she can and involves her clients in projects to give them experience and add to their skills. She does everything within her power to make sure her clients succeed.
I highly recommend Rachel for anyone who is stuck in their career or needs to find something new for whatever reason – she is an inspiration.
Rachel has been an excellent support system for me during the last few months, when I have been transitioning through careers.
Her key strengths are; analysing people, “drawing out personal values", being extremely well planned and detail oriented.
She has always allowed me the freedom to express myself and is able to extract skills, strengths and personal values with ease, right from the initial (casual) conversation, through to the end. She has empowered me to face the fears associated with change, thus enabling me to draw up a plan of action, make decisions and carve out a path to reach my goals successfully. Thanks to Rachel, I now know my USP; my brand!
Through her unique and systematic method of ‘coaching’, Rachel ensures that the transition happens at a speed which the client is comfortable with. She spreads positive energy and as the name suggests, Rachel is a true talent liberator!
For the last 7 months Rachel has been my career coach. She has guided and supported me through my transition as a project/programme professional from the public into the private sector.
Rachel has a unique persona that allows her to create a safe working environment, so that she can ask pertinent questions and deal with sensitive issues. This instils confidence and exercises fears & limiting beliefs, enabling the individual to move forward.
To successfully engage with the new employment market, Rachel gave me real practical and down to earth advice and support, so that I could:
Identify my unique selling point, niche or personal brand;
- Market myself from an employer’s perspective;
- Produce a CV as a marketing tool;
- Prepare effectively for the interview; and
- Start to develop my LinkedIn page.
Rachel has the ability to ‘drag’ important information out of me! This was very useful because I was too close to realise all that I have to offer an employer. She also consistently answered my questions directly. Rachel is Energise by name and Energise by nature!
I have employed Rachel a number of times and have found her a great coach. I trust her integrity, her incisive mind, her methods. She is always reliable, and comes up with good, workable ideas and ways to move my work forward.
When you can’t see the wood for the trees, she is your woman! She is innovative, and has a vast range of fantastic contacts.
Time with Rachel is never wasted! I highly recommend her service.
