Focused. Realistic. Practical. Remi is results-focused and caring at the same time. She brings a lot of experience and insights that will help answer many questions. She has an amazing ability to make you feel super-comfortable to talk to her about anything, and at the same time, you will not even realise you’re being challenged. Remi’s energy and ability to listen will help any coachee go away with a deeper understanding of their work and life. I look forward to continuing working with Remi into the future as I’ve found her coaching to be extremely beneficial.

Hussain Shefaar, Headteacher

Remi has been known to me since 2017 when she was assigned to me as my NPQH coach. The coaching I received was rewarding and I completed my NPQH with no areas for development. However Remi remained an integral part of my professional development. Her high challenge, low threat approach to coaching is one that has caused me to adopt a similar style of leadership because this approach has had a significant impact on my leadership. Through Remi’s coaching I have developed to think strategically even when confronted with challenging situations. Having a coach that uses a variety of tools to unlock your potential and enhance your ability to be impactful and bring about clarity of purpose in my life is an indescribable experience. Remi also takes a trauma informed approach to coaching and is always on hand to supply valuable wisdom unique to your goals and purpose. There is no doubt that if you say YES to Remi coaching you, your experience will be a transformational one.

Carlene Rowe, Deputy Head

I had four coaching sessions with Remi this year. The sessions were very open for me to talk about what I needed – even if I wasn’t quite sure what I needed before the sessions! Remi was excellent at steering me through some challenging issues. Furthermore, she is very good at getting you to see things through different lenses. I was very much listened to; it always felt like a safe space to share,be honest and problem-solve. I would recommend Remi to other senior leaders requiring coaching.
