Forté Clients Say…

Career coaching

I just wanted to say thank you for your time back in June. The time we spent together really opened my eyes to future possibilities and where I could see my career direction heading. After much thought I have decided to follow my deep interests, and I can honestly say that without your help I would have probably never taken this dramatic step – one could say I have since had an epiphany! I very much appreciate the insight you provided me and wish you all the best. RC


Executive coaching

I have extolled the virtues of your work to so many people who think I am very courageous. I put it down to having great advice from you … the absolute best of which was how to get related to people in the line of work I want to do. JA


Workshops & Seminars

Over the past few months dealing with the changes at work I have been very resilient and have remained positive about what was happening – your coaching on either loving your way through or hating your way through has been very powerful. I’ve chosen the former, its done me extremely well and I could not have done it without your help Frances. Thank you for your help.
