Recent feedback for Mary Hope’s coaching…

The experience of being coached by Mary has been challenging and educative in equal measure. I have found her ability to dig a little beyond the obvious and to enable me to place what is discovered in a coherent framework revealing and rewarding. Mary’s approach is warm and supportive – I was never in any doubt that she was on my side – but sharp enough to ensure that difficult issues, areas to address and behaviours that are unhelpful are addressed as an integral part of the process.

‘From a personal and business perspective, I have found the extensive experience you have of working in the recruitment sector invaluable as you provide a sector insight and use examples of real recruitment you have managed to make your point. The e-newsletter, information, and advice on how to apply new media (Linked in/Twitter) have also been really useful. I very much valued your honest approach – I feel confident that you give a true perspective that challenges me in a constructive way. In particular, I feel confident that you won’t let me get away with ‘rationalising’ behaviour that is not matching my expressed aims –in a firm but nice way. Useful sounding board to develop strategies to deal with difficult situations – both in relation to people and the business. Overall, I’ve taken a lot from the sessions and this has benefited me both on a individual and professional level’. IF -Eastbourne

“I achieved my goals and got a job within 10 weeks of being made redundant. It really helped understanding my personal motivators, helped me to identify and describe my skills and experiences. It was challenging and difficult some of the time but in hindsight it was worth it and personal goals achieved .”

Senior Local Government Officer, Kent


“It was fun and enjoyable – and challenging! It is hard to ‘big up’ yourself and Mary helped with this!” Nick-


“Each session had specific goals – initially I was struggling with my job search which was getting nowhere on the back of repeated unsuccessful interviews; subsequently I found Mary’s guidance invaluable in preparing for two interviews and also in reviewing an unsuccessful job application. The opportunity to gain a qualified second opinion on my existing strategies and methods and to offer guidance and thoughts on additional methods and additional things to consider in preparing for an interview; Mary is also very flexible in responding promptly to rather short notice requests for support! Mary’s manner is professional with a sense of fun and she is enjoyable to work with, never condescending. It has been good to know that Mary is genuinely experienced in this field and has practical advice based on her own experiences. To date, I have found Mary’s guidance invaluable and I have appreciated her being almost “on call” and at short notice when the need arises. Of particular relevance: her thoughts and guidance in the presentation and content of my CV; the conversations prior to a scheduled interview which are useful as a qualified second opinion and in terms of being a morale boost that I have done sufficient preparation and feel ready to face the real event! I would recommend Mary on this basis and wholly anticipate booking further sessions with her in future. I would also recommend Mary’s assistance to recruiters based on my experiences and would anticipate doing so myself in future.”
