I was given the opportunity to work with Simona at the end of 2016. The timing was perfect for me – the charity I had set up in 2013 was reaching a critical stage in its development and it was time for some self-reflection and preparation for the next phase.
As is often the case, I started with a very fixed idea of the areas I wanted to address but the sessions led me to different areas to consider and develop on. The outcomes therefore were different to what I had maybe expected but equally valuable. I enjoyed the opportunity to turn the lens towards me and to focus on my own development, and I found Simona to be a capable and empathic coach.
I have genuinely enjoyed the process of working with Simona and have already started to recommend her to others.
UPDATE – 12 months on : I’m delighted to say that I joined the payroll at Stripey Stork last week. I’m incredibly proud that something I created, and love so much, has become a flexible, paid role

Simona has been coaching me since mid-January. It was difficult at the beginning as I was actually wanting to stay away from setting goals. Simona found a way to get round this and we set aspirations instead. This felt a lot more freeing, which is what I needed at the time.
Like many of us I’m sure, I lacked self-belief which can sometimes be crippling and I really wanted to see a way past this.
Simona has worked with me over the past four months to bring me to a point where I have self-belief; I am more confident in my decision making (and I’m not
seeking approval for my decisions as often…);
I am taking more time out, even if it’s just ten minutes with a coffee and my book, just for me. I know how I want to lead, and I know that I am already doing a good job. And I am continuing to help people when I can.
Simona has given me the time and space to think for myself and provide the answers, but she has also challenged me at times (with my permission), which I’ve needed.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Simona to anyone who has a challenge/sticky point they want to get past, as Simona will work with you and get you through it.

I worked with Simona during the final months of my degree, which was a particularly challenging time for me due to family illness. Whilst determined to see my degree through in spite of my circumstances, completing work had become difficult and very stressful. Simona enabled me to get clear on the end goal, develop a healthy mindset to overcome some personal barriers that were getting in the way of my success, and shared practical tools for taking action.
Simona was honest and fair – striking a perfect balance between the tough love that I needed whilst remaining empathetic and sensitive to my personal circumstances throughout.
I went on to graduate with the First Class Honours in my degree and feel strongly that Simona’s coaching and professional support in those last few months finally got me there.
Simona’s coaching extended beyond my academic goals too, providing emotional support and a friendly ear. With a focus on my personal development and genuine best interest, Simona has since continued to support my growth through ongoing coaching and guidance to clarify my career choices and self-development.
Louise Ryan, Career Change/Solepreneur
I was thinking of a career change and approached Simona. Our work quickly led to me realising I wanted to start my own business. Working with Simona has been very exciting as I have been guided down a path to explore my ideas, allow me to come to my own conclusions and really hone in on what I want to achieve. This was my first experience of coaching and I would highly recommend Simona.
Simona came to our offices to train our management team on Transforming Meetings.
She immediately made the whole team feel comfortable and as well as making the day fun and interesting, she encouraged us to go outside of our comfort zone and really explore our own thoughts and listen to those of the team.
We all came away having learnt a lot about ourselves, our team members and with great ideas to take forward into our business. Amazing day and can’t wait for the next session!
