Vafa has been a great help in getting my work life balance in check and also helping me to begin reaching my full potential. Her methods and coaching style really does work and would recommend her services to anyone who is considering. I look forward to having many more coaching sessions as I truly see the benefit in them.

Steve Rebbettes; Local Charity Trustee

Vafa provided numerous workshops for our “Safe - Basingstoke” clients who had various psychological needs - particularly in the area of ‘self-esteem’. The results were outstanding and I can highly recommend Vafa as a great NLP Practitioner and Life Coach. We will most certainly be using her again and I can highly recommend others to do likewise

Steve Taylor; Chief IT Developer

I have a busy job and a busy home life (both of which I thoroughly enjoy but that does not stop it being stressful), I found Vafa's coaching to be incredibly helpful. She has clearly deeply researched the field and, in addition to, has the required skills to deliver her research in a way that can reach and help anyone. I would encourage anyone who has the opportunity to jump at the chance to work with Vafa without hesitation!

Tim Johnson; Coach & Entrepreneur

Vafa is a hugely personable coach, building rapport quickly and effortlessly. She is then able to drop down quickly into deeper levels to start on the real work. Vafa is adept and choosing which models to work with and to pivot seamlessly if that approach didn’t work. She is able to hold the space well and appear totally calm and in control. Highly recommended

Ash-Lee Michael James; Financial Advisor & Sales Director

Vafa is a refreshing inspiration to company directors like myself. Her passion is reflected in her work ethic but almost more importantly her integrity is evident throughout which is a key component that is lost with many other "coaches" or techniques available these days. It's her innate ability to LISTEN and hear sometimes what you can't say yourself that helps her bridge the gap between your potential success and actualising that success. I have no problems recommending Vafa in future and hope that she stays a long term solution for our business operations.

Hannah Molony; Business Coach

Vafa has a warm, positive and affirming style as a coach and I particularly value her solutions-focussed approach. She is incredibly perceptive and through gentle encouragement and support has enabled me to make some significant and long-lasting changes in a number of different areas of my life.

Gill Cooke; Head of Delivery & Digital Planning

Vafa is an inspirational woman! She is such a giver and genuinely wants to help people get their lives back on track. Vafa recently spoke on a #STEMConnext panel "The Power of Failure" where she shared some amazing insight into her own mistakes and learnings and really inspired the audience. Her key tip was “Admit your mistakes so that you can learn from them but more importantly reframe what ‘failure’ means to you – associate it with adventure and growth”. A week later, Vafa gave more of her time to "pay it forward" and coach some confidence skills for people looking to get back to work or get that next role. She advised and coached a number of people and the feedback has been excellent. Thank you Vafa for being such a supporter of me and #STEMConnext

Dara Monaghan - Technical Customer Service Advisor At Vodafone

I met Vafa in 2018 as a customer, and since then we've remained in touch and become great friends. Words can't describe how supportive and instrumental Vafa has been in my life; in only a year she has introduced me to various business contacts, involved me in an amazingly supportive community that has broadened my personal and professional horizons, and is always there as a friend and a mentor, regardless of how much she has going on in her own life. Vafa is truly an inspiration for entrepreneurs and is a fantastic mentor who anyone would be proud to have. Thank you for everything Vafa and here's to evolving our relationship for many more years.

 

Vafa was recommended to me by a friend who knew I was trying to turn my life around and focus on my goal of getting back into work after becoming a mum and being a carer for my partner who had a stroke.  I'd been lacking in confidence and self-esteem and was kinda lost in how to deal with life.  I was quite reluctant to attend this course as a similar course I'd attended previously was boring and ineffective, but I decided to meet with Vafa and explore working with her.

She was kind, understanding and wanted to know how she could help me... And she actually listened!  Attending this course has taught me how to look at situations with a different perspective and in a more positive way.  I learnt that I needed to invest in myself and take responsibility for my outcomes in order to change my life for the better.  I learnt how to cut the negativity out of my life and that anything was possible if I wanted it badly enough.  The phrase 'I can't do this' doesn't exist in my language anymore and I've replaced it with 'I'm still learning how to do this...'

In the current climate of being locked down, if it wasn't for this course and what I've learnt, I know that being stuck at home with my daughter and partner would have caused a lot of stress and depression as we would have argued constantly; but instead, we have taken each other's feelings into consideration and have helped each other out.

Before this course I was very negative about my life and where it was going and had no idea where to turn, but now I feel more confident and happy, moving forward in life with a pore positive outlook.  There's only one way to go when you've reached rock bottom, and that's up! I still have a lot to learn, but with the right techniques I've learnt from Vafa, I'm confident I can turn my dreams into achievable goals.

L James; Volunteer & Back to Work Mum

 

You were recommended to me by my colleague after I had discussed with her my daughter's struggles and anxieties. She briefly outlined your confidence-building approach as a life coach.

We chose to work with you because I felt from talking to you that you could specifically tailor your coaching to my daughter's needs.  I also sensed from the conversation we had, how enthusiastic you were to help her and provide her with opportunities to change her outlook.

I found it useful that we could chat before you started your session with my daughter, so I could update you on how things had been.  I've also appreciated the feedback after each session, which has always been detailed.  It has been important for my husband and I to know how you've been working with our daughter, as this has enabled us to manage situations at home the following week.  The two sessions we had with you as a family were invaluable for us all to be 'singing from the same hymn sheet'.

The sessions have had an impact on my daughter and she's taking onboard the positive messages.  In the longer term, your sessions have provided our daughter with self-awareness and the tools to be able to continue to develop in a positive way.

I am truly grateful for all you have done for our daughter over the last couple of months and for the continuous support you have shown us all as a family.  Our daughter is familiar, relaxed and trusting of you and I wouldn't hesitate to contact you if we need your services again in the future.

With many thanks and best wishes

A Wroe; Professional & Mum

 

I would just like to say a massive thank you for the impact your sessions had on my husband's life and therefore also mine.  He has a good level of self-confidence, but actually very low self-esteem.  Every night when he came back from the workshop, he would say: 'Vafa said I had a good idea about this...' or 'Vafa said this was a really good aspect of my personality'.  He really really respects your opinion and I can tell him how lucky we are to have him in our lives as much as I like, but to hear it from someone else has made such a difference to the trust he puts in his own actions and opinions and to his own sense of value.

He also has finally discovered more than just a passive indifference to craft!  He voluntarily completed some colouring activities over Easter and he even made his own craft video for our family YouTube Channel!  Again, so good for his self-esteem and sense of value.

Thank you for being a fab human that you are.  I am so very grateful to have met you.
