I would highly recommend Neish Consultancy Ltd, I’ve had the pleasure of Shona coaching me for a number of sessions during 2017 and into 2018. Shona’s style is extremely adaptable, and Shona allowed me the time and space to work through the sessions in my own way, while ensuring that the sessions were structured and focused. Shona was beyond flexible, including providing sessions over Skype and face-to-face – which for me with a busy work and social life with a huge positive. It also held me accountable for my goals and objectives, in a supportive manner, as we factored in sessions in a timely fashion – meaning there was no time for excuses! A friendly supportive mechanism to keep you on the right track. This was helped hugely by Shona’s incredible team which added extra value to my experience – there was always someone on hand! A special thank you to Adele.Shona used probing questions to help me challenge my thought process and in turn I achieved far more than I ever thought I could. Shona was professional but encouraged a relaxed approach which truly helped me to speak openly and more importantly honestly. I trust Shona irrevocably. The trust I have for Shona and her incredible knowledge and outlook helped me achieve my goals. We are continuing working together to keep building and reframing new goals which is exciting and I will always recommend Shona and her team.I am happy to personally talk to anyone thinking of engaging Neish Consultancy Limited, to speak honestly about my experience.With ever-thankful wishes Rosie Mellers, HR Advisor

The personal and business benefits gained from coaching with Shona from Neish Consultancy have been invaluable. Shona consistently brought valuable insights and techniques to our sessions, as well as tools to use outside of those meetings. Shona has a business mind, which was really relevant in our coaching, as well as a strong emphasis on maintaining work-life balance. The qualities I particularly appreciate about Shona is that she is objective, clear, concise and challenging. She also has a fantastic sense of humour, which makes the time that you spend with her thoroughly enjoyable! I would highly recommend engaging Shona for coaching and training.
