“Working with my Coach has been incredible. Starting this new role, I knew that I would struggle with my confidence and decision making. After starting to work together over the summer, I felt 100% more confident in my work, reflecting on practice, and handling some really difficult situations. I have learned so much from the coaching process and never want it to end!”
