about working with me
What Women Are Saying
I WORK WITH SOULFUL, CREATIVE, AMBITIOUS WOMEN
I've worked with a variety of coaches and entrepreneurs - from health coaches to business coaches, healers to nutritionists, all kind of creatives including photographers, wedding planners, filmmakers and designers, as well as brave women in corporate ready to take the leap into entrepreneurship and create a whole new life & business...
Here’s what some of my past clients have to say about working with me:
“AFTER 2 MONTH'S OF IMPLEMENTING POLLY'S TEACHINGS, I WAS ABLE TO HAVE MY FIRST $21,000 MONTH FROM MY COACHING BUSINESS!
I couldn't believe it, and I was ready to go on and take on even more! One of just the many amazing things about Polly is her ability to help you get present, celebrate yourself, and really own all the amazing things we do in our businesses every day. Each call I would come away with ideas, feeling light and peaceful, and more determined than ever to live the life of my dreams. Thank you Polly! Our time together is one of the best decisions of supporting myself I have ever made”
D'Arcy Benincosa. Entrepreneur, Creative & Business Coach
“When I started working with Polly, I had just had my first $10K month and found myself hitting some serious upper limits. I was feeling overworked with my client load and questioning whether I could do it again, without burning out. I knew I needed support from a masterful coach to help me push through. Polly helped me stay laser-focused on my goals so that I could keep moving forward on a weekly basis, without the overwhelm of everything I thought needed to happen next.
AFTER JUST 4 SESSIONS I HAD A $14K MONTH and have gone on to hit consistent $10K+ months with a manageable number of clients.
More importantly, we worked through the self-worth issues and visibility blocks that were causing me to discount my services and had me playing small. As a result, I completely reworked my schedule, set boundaries with clients, increased my rates and I've been more visible in my business than ever before! I now do regular webinars and videos - and I NO LONGER FEAR BEING JUDGED OR CRITICIZED for what I have to say. (My theta healing session was absolutely incredible!)
I go about my days with more ease and I've completely fallen back in love with my business.
POLLY REALLY SEES YOU AND HAS A SPECIAL GIFT FOR HELPING YOU RECONNECT WITH YOURSELF!”
Cara Rice, Business Mentor.
“THE 6 MONTHS I HAVE SPENT WITH POLLY HAVE BEEN INCREDIBLE AND MY LIFE HAS CHANGED IN SO MANY WAYS. My coaching business is exactly where I want it to be and I'm exceeding my original goal month-on-month.
It's so much more than that though. EVERYTHING JUST SEEMS SO MUCH EASIER. Both my photography business and my coaching business have experienced a big shift and I'm generally a happier and healthier person. I've always been someone who is dominated by fear but now I feel free from this. I trust myself so much more to achieve everything I desire in life. My friends and family have told me how happy, capable and determined I seem and they're right! I feel totally in control and really very happy.”
Faye Cornhill, Photographer & Coach
“I COULDN’T HAVE IMAGINED HAVING THE CONFIDENCE TO DREAM SO BIG and take action on those dreams this time last year. It is staggering how much I have achieved in the last year, both under the guidance of Polly, and with the new mind-set and ways of being that she helped instil into me in our time together.
That was the truly powerful thing about mentoring with Polly. She didn’t just help me though the specific issues I was tackling at the time, she helped me learn how to be a stronger, more confident, more efficient business person and woman.

“I CREATED MY NEW BUSINESS REACHED MY GOAL OF 8 MONTHLY CLIENTS WITHIN 3 MONTHS!
I AM NOW LIVING MY DREAM, spending time with family and only working from 8am to 2pm, so that I can have quality time with my little girl on a daily basis.
In Month 4 I have over $5,000 in sales and I am already taking on my first employee so I can expand! I am so THRILLED AND EXCITED AT WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS.
Polly is not afraid to say it like it is, call you out and put you back on track. POLLY IS GRACIOUS, FEMININE AND INSPIRING TO WORK WITH. We dig deep, we have a giggle and most of all it is an enjoyable experience that I really look forward to every week. MY COACHING CALL KEEPS ME ON TRACK AND HELPS ME TO FAST TRACK MY GOALS BOTH IN BUSINESS & PERSONALLY. I would highly recommend ongoing coaching to really SUPER CHARGE YOUR BUSINESS!”
Chanelle Segerius-Bruce, Social Media Marketing.
When I started this journey I was pregnant with my second child. I’d had this dream of setting up my own website and blog to share everything I’d learned over the past decade with the world. But I had no idea where to start. I’d been following Polly on Instagram for a while but it wasn’t until I received one of her newsletters all about investing in yourself that I booked a discovery call with her. AFTER SPEAKING WITH POLLY I KNEW I HAD TO SIGN UP AND I DID THAT EVENING.
POLLY HELPED ME GET REALLY CLEAR ON WHO I AM AND WHAT I HAVE TO OFFER. She’s HELPED ME CREATE A BRAND I LOVE but it goes far beyond that.
I’M A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT PERSON!
She’s made me believe in myself more than I ever have done, she’s made me believe that ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE and not only have I SET UP MY WEBSITE & I CREATED MY NEW BUSINESS AS WELL (and had a baby!). SHE’S TAUGHT ME HOW TO DREAM BIG!
I’ve just signed up for my third cycle of coaching, for me investing in one cycle was a really big deal, I never thought I’d be ready to go for a third time. I’m excited to see what possibilities lie ahead for me and my business!
I now have BIG DREAMS far beyond my website.
The experience has been LIFE CHANGING!
Nicky Duffell, Nutritionist & Coach.
I came to Polly initially looking for ways to move my photography business forward to the next level and as a highly successful photographer, I knew Polly offered so much in terms of experience and business expertise. However, I wasn't prepared for how DEEPLY PROFOUND AND LIFE CHANGING coaching would be. It has taken me on A JOURNEY OF RE-DISCOVERY, OPENING ME UP TO NEW IDEAS IN MY PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL LIFE. It has awakened old dreams that were put to one side when motherhood changed so many of my priorities and has EXPANDED MY WORLD BEYOND RECOGNITION.
WITHIN 4 MONTHS OF WORKING WITH POLLY I HAD REDESIGNED EVERY ASPECT OF MY BUSINESS from my pricing structure to social media content to time management. Within weeks of changing my pricing I BOOKED 3 CONSECUTIVE CLIENTS AT 3 TIMES MY OLD RATES and I have maintained a consistently higher monthly income since.
Within 6 months I had re-branded my business twice and implemented a substantial support network around my business. I NOW HAVE A TEAM OF PEOPLE provide ongoing support in everything from technical support to someone to manage my social media and blogging. This has allowed me the time and space to focus much more constructively on growing my business.
Coaching gave me the support I needed to identify areas where my business could improve and grow and then the framework to implement these changes. Being held accountable to someone on a weekly basis and learning to work to strict deadlines CHANGED THE WAY I MANAGED MY TIME, it IMPROVED MY PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS and it pushed me out of my comfort zone on many occasions....always with fabulous results!
However for me, it was the very unexpected changes that occurred in my personal life that I found the most exciting. It OPENED ME TO A WORLD OF POSSIBILITIES and made me look really carefully at my own dreams and desires.
POLLY IS A WONDERFULLY CALM, HONEST PERSON WHO PROVIDES A CONSISTENTLY HIGH LEVEL OF SUPPORT & EXPERTISE & HAS A GENUINE PASSION & DRIVE TO HELP YOU SUCCEED
Deciding to commit to coaching took a giant leap of faith - I didn't have the money for it, I didn't think I had the time for it and I wasn't sure it would change anything. However to say 'yes' to yourself and to allow yourself to be supported in such a positive and life-affirming way, is an intensely powerful action!
I CAN HONESTLY SAY IT WAS ONE OF THE MOST LIFE CHANGING, MOST AMAZING EXPERIENCES OF MY LIFE!”
Natalie McKenzie-Brown, Photographer.
“YOUR COACHING HAS IMPACTED ME ON SO MANY LEVELS, I CAN’T TELL YOU HOW MANY. THANK YOU SO SO MUCH! IT IS ONE OF THE BEST THINGS I HAVE DONE WITH MY LIFE, AND I AM SO GRATEFUL TO YOU!
My rates used to be £1600…. 2 weeks after starting coaching I booked a £3500 client. Since then I have booked clients at £4500 and now £6500!!
I have gained HUGE CONFIDENCE, SELF BELIEF and I honestly feel like a new woman with the optimism I have now found. EVERYONE IN MY LIFE HAS COMMENTED ON HOW POSITIVE AND HOW MUCH HAPPIER I AM.
That was the biggest gift the coaching gave me. The ability to reconnect with myself, my dreams and my joyfulness.”
Katie Julia, Photographer & Painter.
“My experience of coaching with Polly has been LIFE CHANGING FOR BOTH MY PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS AND MY PERSONAL LIFE.
It has been ONE OF THE BEST EXPERIENCES I HAVE EVER INVESTED MY TIME, SOUL AND MONEY IN. The latter almost fades in significance.
POLLY HAS A GENTLE YET POWERFUL WAY TO HELP YOU FIND & CREATE THE RESULTS YOU SEEK. Never pushy or judgemental, always professional, prompt yet direct and compassionate. Polly has taught me new tools and skills that will help guide and keep me on track long after our sessions have finished, which have given me a new found sense of independence and more.
If you have the desire or itch for change then be prepared to expect the unexpected and to look at your work & life with fresh new eyes.
YOUR GUIDANCE IS SO INSPIRING & MAKES ME FEEL I CAN DO ANYTHING I SET MY MIND TO!”
Zosia Zacharia, Photographer.
"When I first contacted Polly to enquire about her coaching programme, I didn't really know what to expect or what I would achieve. I'd heard lots of stories about how powerful coaching can be and I was at a stage in my life when I felt compelled to try something to reinvigorate my love for my business and reclaim a sense of 'me' which had taken a backseat since having my daughter.
After the initial discovery call, I knew that coaching with Polly was definitely the right decision – I felt that her knowledge of the wedding industry, HER CALM AND GENTLE PRESENCE, HER INTUITIVE NATURE and her own experience of having a coach, made her a great choice for me and whilst the investment was significant post maternity leave, I knew that it was an investment in myself and my business that would be HUGELY BENEFICIAL IN THE LONG RUN.
I've recently completed the 90 day programme and can honestly say that it was THE BEST DECISION I HAVE MADE FOR BOTH MYSELF & MY BUSINESS in a very long time. The Skype sessions are focused but flexible so whilst we often start a session looking at one area of my life or business, we can quite easily and very naturally progress into another area and because of this, we cover so much ground. AFTER EVERY SESSION I COME AWAY REALLY EXCITED AND INVIGORATED WITH A NOTEBOOK OF CLEAR & TARGETED ACTIONS. As a result, I have made significant gains in my business and IN THE FIRST 90 DAYS WITH POLLY I BROUGHT IN OVER £40,000 WORTH OF BUSINESS as well as learning a huge amount about myself in the process.
POLLY IS A COMPLETE NATURAL AT HER JOB AND HELPS TO BRING OUT THE BEST IN YOU – SHE’S LIKE A SECRET WEAPON! Polly helped me to communicate my desires, express my feelings and work towards accomplishing everything that I have ever wished for. I've just signed up for another 6 month programme and I’M REALLY EXCITED TO WORK WITH POLLY AGAIN and to see what the next few months have in store"
Lisa Baker, Wedding Planner.
“Before I invested in the coaching program with Polly, I had been struggling with my business for years. It felt like a hobby, and I ran it like a hobby, and it was thanks to Polly that I finally got into the mindset to take it to the next level. SHE HELPED ME UNRAVEL MY REAL CALLING, BUILD A WHOLE NEW BRAND FROM SCRATCH & MAKE IT PROFITABLE WITHIN THE FIRST 3 MONTHS. Polly is compassionate and caring, but also not afraid to show you some "tough love" when you need it. Her coaching has been key for me in becoming a real entrepreneur.”
Esther Friedrich, Blogger.
I learned so much! So inspiring! POLLY IS PERCEPTIVE, SENSITIVE AND INTELLIGENT AND REALLY KNOWS HER STUFF WHEN IT COMES TO STARTING A BUSINESS. I had hoped that coaching with Polly would be fruitful, but it was even better than I expected.
Sonali Hindmarch, Founder of littlegoldie.com
“What was supposed to be business coaching shifted into a LIFE TRAINING ON ALL LEVELS. I think the most significant change is my new belief that everything is possible, I know that I am the creator of my own life. I feel MORE POWERFUL, STRONGER, MORE ENTHUSIASTIC AND MORE DYNAMIC. Thank you so much Polly !! Happy happy client!”
Maria Simon, Photographer.
“I always felt incredibly supported and encouraged by Polly, and inspired at the end of each session. Her warmth and enthusiasm is particularly infectious and I ALWAYS CAME OUT OF OUR SESSIONS THINKING “I CAN DO THIS!”. Taking the plunge to invest in coaching with Polly was not a decision I entered into lightly, but I would encourage anyone thinking about coaching with Polly to make that call, as it has been ONE OF THE BEST DECISIONS I HAVE EVER MADE BOTH ON A PROFESSIONAL AND PERSONAL LEVEL”
Kim Balasubramaniam, Wedding Planner.
"WORKING WITH POLLY HAS BEEN THE MOST AMAZING LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE and absolutely THE BEST DECISION I HAVE MADE FOR MYSELF PERSONALLY AND FOR MY BUSINESS.
Before working with Polly, I felt so disillusioned with my work; jobs kept falling through; I didn’t know what was going wrong and more importantly, how to turn it around. I wanted to build a business around the sort of photography that truly made my heart sing and to spend more time doing the work that I love. I was too busy being busy, without being productive...
Right from the discovery call, I felt at ease with Polly, she absolutely ‘got’ me, and it was as if I’d known her years!
From the very first session, we dug deep; we got clear on what I wanted to achieve, and how I was going to get there.
Together, over the next twelve weeks, we established a route to achieving my goals, introduced a new timetable that would work well for me and enable me to work more efficiently, tightened up business practices that had been slowing me down, overhauled my social media presence, expanded my business network, worked out how to get visible, set up a brand new element to my business, pushed myself out of my comfort zone and discovered the world of public speaking (and how fantastic it is! That’s something I never thought I’d say!). I secured paid work, and the opportunities to grow and develop my business just keep on coming!
Seeing the timeline collapse before me as I worked through everything week by week, felt so empowering and I know now that I have what it takes to succeed. Working with a coach who has trodden the same path before me was so reassuring and helped me to realise that great success is possible for everyone. But it wasn’t just the physical, tangible work that dramatically changed. We worked on my mindset, improving my mental strength and working through blocks that had been tripping me up without me even realising.
Polly was patient and understanding through all the tears (of which there were quite a few!) before pushing me on to realise the best version of myself.
THROUGH WORKING WITH POLLY I REDISCOVERED MY FIGHT, MY FIRE AND MY DETERMINATION.
Polly gave me the accountability that I needed and the kick up the backside to get the work done! She had so much advice and provided wonderful guidance, and just talked damn good sense that I really needed to hear!
Knowing Polly was there to support me, in my corner cheering me on and to celebrate every victory along the way GAVE ME BACK THE CONFIDENCE I HAD LOST.
I feel like a businesswoman! That’s huge! And I now have so much confidence and pride in my work. I really can’t thank you enough Polly, for all of your support, your patience and guidance. It’s been a privilege to work and share my journey with you. You’re the best!"
Karina Lyburn, Photographer.
“When I started coaching, I was exhausted, fed up and totally overwhelmed with my photography business. I was just about surviving on the money I was bringing in, but in order to earn the money I was running myself ragged working seven days a week and it was unbearable. I knew I had to make changes including upping my rates and reducing my work schedule, but I had no idea how to go about doing this and I was terrified that I would lose clients.
Polly and I worked through a list of tasks and goals that had to happen in order to make positive changes in my business and quality of life. These included rebranding, updating my website, hiring an assistant (and learning to delegate), upping my rates, working on my money mindset and scheduling time off for myself.
I’m happy to say (after a lot of work and self discovery!) that I MANAGED TO ACHIEVE ALL OF MY GOALS. Putting my prices up was absolutely terrifying, however, I’m still getting bookings from my existing clients as well as some fabulous new ones and I'M EARNING MORE MONEY WHILE DOING LESS WORK. MY STRESS LEVELS ARE FAR LOWER and I'M ACTUALLY ENJOYING RUNNING MY OWN BUSINESS AGAIN. Looking back on how life was pre-coaching, I couldn’t see the wood for the trees and having Polly’s support and input enabled me to make the changes I needed to improve life, in a very short space of time.
I would highly recommend Polly’s coaching programme to entrepreneurs who are wanting to take their businesses to the next level. I MANAGED TO TRANSFORM MY LIFE & BUSINESS IN JUST 3 MONTHS, which is something I would never have been able to do on my own.”
Emma O'Brien, Photographer.
“When I first approached Polly and booked my discovery call, I was pretty low. I'd found out I was pregnant (which I was actually overjoyed about), but the first trimester really took it all out of me, physically and mentally. My stationery business had burnt me out, had no direction and kind of floundered a bit due to me not being able to work much, to be honest I felt pretty lost and it scared me. I knew something had to change, but had no idea in the slightest where to start.
I'd been following Polly on Instagram for over a year, and had seen what she'd been able to achieve for herself, so even though I could barely afford the fee, I decided I had to do it for myself and my growing family as I really couldn't afford not to.
We immediately hit it off during the discovery call, and I knew pretty much straight away that coaching with Polly was going to work for me. WITHIN JUST A FEW WEEKS I COULD ALREADY SEE THE CHANGE WITHIN MY BUSINESS, BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY THE CHANGE WITHIN MYSELF.
WITH POLLY'S ENCOURAGEMENT, I DECIDED ON A COMPETE OVERHAUL OF MY BUSINESS, CHANGE OF NAME, BRANDING & DIRECTION & SET MYSELF A TARGET OF RELAUNCHING WITHIN 3 MONTHS. On paper it looked very scary, the amount I needed to achieve in a short amount of time, but what really helped me was the accountability of having a session with Polly every week, and THAT ACCOUNTABILITY COMPLETELY DROVE ME TO BE ABLE TO ACHIEVE IT!
EVERY WEEK I ACHIEVED MORE AND MORE - I COMPLETELY SURPRISED MYSELF! I re-launched back in January, and haven't looked back. I have since finished my 90 day intensive with Polly, but her influence is still very much with me every day.
At the very start I really wasn't sure how it would work, and believe me there is no magic formula. What's happened is that POLLY HAS MANAGED TO CHANGE MY THINKING ABOUT ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING, from my day to day routine, to my money mindset and a lot of hard work in-between. MY WHOLE OUTLOOK ON LIFE HAS CHANGED, and I really dread to think where I'd be now if I hadn't decided to take the plunge and invest in coaching. POLLY HAS TRULY CHANGED MY LIFE & I NOW FEEL I HAVE THE CAPABILITY TO DO ANYTHING I SET MY MIND TO - and I'm really not just saying that.
I will be investing in more coaching with Polly towards the end of the year or beginning of next year, but for now I'm REAPING THE REWARDS & LOOKING FORWARD TO SCALING THE BUSINESS and welcoming our first born into the world very soon!”
Caryl Halstead, Luxury Paper Goods.
“WORKING WITH POLLY CHANGED MY LIFE and I am ever grateful for the experience and what I got out of it.
Before I started the coaching I was all over the place, working this and that, here and there.
During the coaching I learned how to treat my photography business as a business, how to set up my schedule so it supports me (versus stressing me out), how to use my energy well, how to set goals and achieve them.
NOW I FEEL LIKE A BUSINESSWOMAN (and I became one! ), I KNOW WHAT I NEED TO DO TO GET THE RESULTS I DESIRE, and I RECONNECTED WITH MY INTUITION AND MY INNER WISDOM.
Working with Polly was FUN, INSPIRING AND MOTIVATING, and it helped me improve my business and my life.“
Bernadette Reiter, Photographer.
“I was a crossroads with my business. In a very short space of time it had grown so quickly that I wasn’t quite sure where to go next and how to make sure that every client I was working with was right for me.
I had also experienced changes in my personal life and I was struggling to balance everything and make time for everything that I needed to.
I reached out to Polly as I wanted to TAKE THE BUSINESS TO THE NEXT LEVEL, put future plans in place and be very clear as to where I was going. Working with Polly every week gave me FOCUS, something that I can sometimes lack. I was accountable to her every week and that made me do the work required to shift my thinking.
In the time I worked with Polly I took on 6 new clients paying full price. I HIT MY TARGETS for the wedding venue I look after for this year and I HAVE CLEAR GOALS of where I am going.
I have no doubt that a lot of this was down to Polly and her coaching. Not for one minute did I think I can't do this. WITH HER GUIDANCE EVERYTHING BECAME POSSIBLE and I will continue to work on myself and my business because of what I started with Polly. I also have no doubt that I will go back and work with her again in the future.”
Louise Perry, Wedding & Event Planner.
“Although my 2 businesses were successful and profitable, I felt I NEEDED MORE DIRECTION FOR ME AS A BUSINESSWOMAN, WIFE AND MOTHER. It became apparent that I HAD NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT WHAT I WOULD LIKE. It was always what was good for business or the family. For the very first time I starting thinking about my desires. I created a vision board of what I wanted to achieve. IN JUST 6 MONTHS I HAVE TICKED OFF HALF THE ITEMS ON MY VISION BOARD. Some of the changes were major like moving into a much larger house.
I feel positive that Polly encouraging me to think about my desires, and creating the vision board, enabled me to MANIFEST OUR DREAM HOUSE. I will admit to looking at my vision board and reciting “my dream home is around the corner”. Ironically the new home is not round the corner but instead a few doors up!
Other items on the vision board include regular date nights with my husband which we’ve both embraced, and arranging nights away a few times a year. Of course being a girl, there are a number of high-end purchases I’m aiming for but I TRUST & KNOW THIS WILL HAPPEN.
ANOTHER MAJOR AREA POLLY HELPED ME WITH WAS RECOGNISING THE NEED FOR SUPPORT STAFF. I advertised for a PA to help me manage my life and she has been a godsend.
THE LANGUAGE I USE IS FAR MORE POSITIVE, not only in my marketing but also in the way I interact with friends and family. I even have a gratitude jar where I write something positive every day, I can’t wait to go back and read through these at the end of the year.
WE HONESTLY HAVE ACHIEVED SO MUCH FROM WORKING TOGETHER that I could write reams and reams of testimonials and case studies. Polly is fabulous and I have no hesitation in recommending her.”
Bernadette Chapman, Wedding and Event Planner & Co-Owner of UK AWP.
“I FOUND THE COACHING INTENSIVE INVALUABLE IN HELPING ME TO RE-FOCUS AND RE-ENERGISE.
I CAME AWAY BUZZING WITH IDEAS AND ACTIONS AND AM GENUINELY EXCITED ABOUT THE NEXT STAGE OF MY JOURNEY”
Lisa Baker, Wedding Planner.
“Before coaching I was in a very unproductive state of procrastination about my brand identity. I was frustrated, anxious and unable to move forwards.
Within a few weeks of coaching, I had booked a designer, chosen new brand visuals and packaging, became much clearer in how to move forward, and moved my diary and business admin online which DRAMATICALLY IMPROVED MY BUSINESS EFFICIENCY.
Polly’s coaching supported me in the months leading up to a high-end wedding show and the result was I booked a £4,250 beautiful Claridge’s wedding.
The regular weekly sessions provided me with accountability and to show up having done the set tasks during the week propelled my business MUCH FASTER THAN I COULD HAVE DONE ALONE.
As well as business coaching, THE LIFE COACHING HAS TURNED THIS YEAR INTO ONE OF PHYSICAL AND MENTAL FITNESS AND HEALTH, where I have invested in a personal trainer, become more self-confident and learned to trust and act on my instincts to let go of those who were negatively impacting my well being. With coaching I now possess the tools to develop my business and life and achieve my goals.
Sarah Hannam, Photographer.
“Taking Polly on as my Business Coach has been ONE OF THE BEST BUSINESS DECISIONS I HAVE EVER MADE IN 14 MONTHS OF WORKING FOR MYSELF.
Together we have collapsed the timeline, started a new business, transformed my mindsets, nailed my social media profile, set up new business systems, rebranded, raised my rates, refocused my offerings, taken on new staff & transformed my own personal profile: all in 9 months.
None of this would have happened without Polly’s guidance, encouragement, insights and accountability.
Polly has been instrumental in helping me TRANSFORM MY LIFE from being COMPLETELY BURNT OUT A YEAR AGO TO NOW BEING COMPLETELY RE-ENERGISED, REFRESHED AND SO EXCITED FOR THE YEAR AHEAD."
Adrian Stone, Filmmaker.
“My experience of coaching with Polly was AMAZING AND GENUINELY LIFE-CHANGING. So much shifted and changed for me, and I achieved so much in such a short space of time, it’s hard to put into words!
I went into the programme with three goals – to help me gain clarity whether to move my family to France or stay in the UK, (a decision we had been struggling with for years) to re-brand and re-launch my business with a new website and pricing (also been faffing with/putting off for years!), and to start to deal with my mindset biggies – indecision, procrastination and perfectionism.
Within days of starting the programme (through the welcome pack exercises and the intensive) I had INCREDIBLE CLARITY ON MY TRUE DESIRES around the idea of moving, and within a few months WE HAD PUT IN AN OFFER ON MY DREAM HOME IN FRANCE (which we move to in January!!).
I launched my new website, after literally years of procrastination – chanting my new mantra "Done is better than perfect" – and I absolutely love it, and even more that it is done! Working through the reasons why I procrastinate and dealing with those fears has given me A HUGE SENSE OF FREEDOM AND CONFIDENCE TO GO OUT THERE AND BE ME, AND BRING MY UNIQUE GIFTS TO THE WORLD -WITHOUT WORRYING WHAT PEOPLE THINK OR IF I'M GOOD ENOUGH.
Having the weekly sessions, with check-ins due the day before, gave me the accountability I needed to get things done, and really made me sit down and think about what I had achieved each week, and what I needed from my next session. However, sessions had a habit of going to places I hadn’t planned, and dealing with things from the past that I hadn’t realised were still affecting me and holding me back. Polly was extremely patient and gentle when needed, (there were often unexpected tears!), but also gave me the kick I needed to make changes and move forwards.
This is an ongoing journey, and I still have a way to go, but I have come so far and learned so much, I have no doubt that THE POSITIVE HABITS AND MINDSET SHIFTS that started on the programme will have a PROFOUND EFFECT ON THE REST OF MY LIFE.
Katy Lunsford, Photographer.
“From Session 1 however I knew this was going to be transformative. THE WHOLE PROCESS WAS INCREDIBLE, focusing on mindset and confidence. This was so revealing and has UTTERLY SHIFTED MY BELIEFS and enabled me to find the practical business solutions for myself.
Polly has given me the CONFIDENCE AND BELIEF to pursue & push forward at great speed with new business directions that I’m passionate about and good at. I’M ARMED WITH A STRATEGY, FINANCIAL PLAN AND A PASSION & EXCITEMENT THAT IS UNSTOPPABLE.
I have hit my very ambitious business targets for this first 3 months of the year and have so many more plans in the pipeline. I can’t thank Polly enough for what is TRULY A LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE (and trust me I never say stuff like this!)"
Kelly Chandler, Event Planner & Consultant
