​Mal became my coach just over six months ago and her impact on me as a person and a professional has been transformational.


I have always been a reflective practitioner but at times my reflection has been unfocused, with a tendency to overthink and worry. Mal's strengths included her ability to listen intently and to focus on and feed back to me the key issues in amongst the many things I talked about.


She was willing to share of herself and her experience to help me explore options and alternatives to my current ways of thinking and behaving. Most important to me was the way she validated my moral standpoint and supported me to continue to be true to my vision at times of professional pressure.

Mal is caring, helpfully challenging and very, very wise. I hope to continue my shared learning journey with Mal into the future and highly recommend her as a coach.

Mal has given me the tools and confidence to become an effective leader. The ‘Assertive Leadership’ course looks at the whole individual: taking personality traits and past experiences into account, while offering a plethora of ideas to manage different personality styles.


Mal has been a leader in schools for many years and offers her expertise through her own personal experiences. This has helped guide me through different scenarios that may happen in the future.


Thank you.
