" I have known Marcus for over 30 years. As an active member of our national group he was always prepared to provide help, guidance and support to colleagues across the country. As a coach and mentor he was instrumental in helping them arrive at solutions and conclusions on a wide variety of topics and issues. "

Kam from Gloucestershire says:
" I worked for another public sector body for nine years in a similar role to Marcus. We often worked together and dealt with some pretty high-profile issues and high-pressure situations. On quite a few occasions I turned to him for guidance and over this period I also got to know him very well. He really does have a wealth of experience and knows how to understand and deal with complex issues, both work-related and personal. "
Will from Stafford says:
" Marcus helped me grow and develop in my professional career. He was a patient and enthusiastic coach and mentor who helped me analyse situations which led to fantastic outcomes. As a result of his help I achieved promotion in my career. "
Sue from Birmingham says:
" Marcus helped me to identify what was important in my life and gave me suggestions for a variety of tips, tools and techniques to enable me to reach an important decision about my future. He was very supportive, let me vent my frustrations at him and helped me to take control of my life. His support made a significant difference to how I feel about my decision and the tools he gave me will help me to make future ones. "
Jonathan from the USA says:
" I found my coaching session with Marcus made me look at my goals in a different way than I’d thought of them before. He asked me thought-provoking questions of the type I’d never been previously asked, resulting in insights I’ve found very useful thereafter. "

" Margaret is a unique person who cares and senses when someone is in trouble . I have worked with her for more than 15 years and I have seen the difference she has made to many people including myself.
After more than two decades of giving herself to her job in the NHS she has decided to give herself to her dream. I have no doubt she will succeed. She has a gift for counselling. She identifies the issues and guides the person to the solution.
She knows when to speak and when to listen. With the experience of a full personal and working life she has the base to help you with whatever your issue is.
Good luck Margaret !"
Michael Hurley says:
"I have known Margaret for several years both in her professional capacity as a Practice Manager and as a friend.
Her previous experience as a counsellor with St David’s Foundation was evident in the sensitive and caring manner she exhibited with patients at the surgery going beyond the call of duty to soothe the difficulties and ease the worry and concern of those with family illnesses, anxieties and stress. Her gentle and caring approach was deeply appreciated by all and helped so many in their sadness and sorrow.
I personally experienced Margaret’s great kindness and thoughtfulness during my late wife’s illness. Her support helped me to cope with the strain and sadness of caring for Rose.
This help and support was given with great generosity, care and genuine empathy.
I can think of no better person to help you in a time of need."
