“This is a perfect way of really getting guidance on a problem. Very good way to engage in a non face to face chat format. I am really glad this is happening and I got help. Can’t wait for the net session.“


“I was surprised how easy it was to ‘talk’ through a chat, coach Hannah helped by explaining all the time very clearly what she was doing and why she was asking specific questions.”
