“The path that Robyn set me on addressed all the important issues that I had not been attending to in my life including increasing assertiveness and changing old behaviours. This enabled me to understand how my brain was working and how to change that thinking to improve my life and the lives of people around me.”

“I thoroughly enjoy Robyn’s method of coaching. It is structured and strategic, focused on achieving results with goal setting and homework by means of notes supplied by Robyn or links to view; which helped me a lot with my transformation and implementation, to make sure the coaching is effective.”

“What I enjoyed most about Robyn was her objective truth and honesty. On many an occasion Robyn called me out on my comments or feelings, referring to personal experience, challenging me to alter my own behavior to better control situations or in some instances take personal accountability for situations rather than being a victim, ultimately delivering an even better result than was originally desired.”

“I found Robyn to be especially insightful and perceptive. Robyn’s use of questioning skills combined with her approach in pursuing difficult topics and conversations really opened up different avenues of critical thinking and verbal communication for me. Robyn was able to support me and confront me with honesty – and never let me off the hook. Robyn has a natural ability to remain focused on the root of the issue and is not easily diverted or swayed with ‘noise’. This was helpful in ensuring the real issues were tackled quickly and efficiently.”
