- Testimonials -

I am incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Professor Hilary Garratt as my Coach. When I approached her, I was seeking guidance to overcome personal obstacles that were impeding my career growth and preventing me from reaching my full potential. As a Coachee, I was faced with a complex set of challenges, unsure of where to begin.


However, Professor Garratt's expertise and skilful approach proved invaluable. She adeptly deconstructed the issues into manageable topics, paving the way for profound transformation.

Throughout our coaching sessions, we delved into various facets of my journey, some of which were deeply challenging.


What truly sets Professor Garratt apart is her remarkable ability to navigate these sensitive areas with empathy, creating a safe space for exploration and self-reflection. The sessions were nothing short of transformative, providing me with an extraordinary opportunity to gain a profound understanding of myself and align my values to fuel personal and professional growth.

Professor Garratt's coaching style is both comforting and empowering. She enabled me to confront aspects of myself that I had previously suppressed or considered insurmountable. Thanks to her guidance, I emerged from the coaching sessions as a profoundly changed individual, having achieved growth beyond my imagination. Even now, I continue to implement the tools and techniques I acquired, further nurturing my development.
