Testimonials and kind words.
“Lindsay has made a massive impact on our leaders and on our business.
As we began designing our first leadership programme at disguise, Lindsay quickly understood the challenges we faced. The design was thoughtful, inspired and engaging - exactly meeting our needs. The feedback on Lindsay’s delivery has also been fantastic. She has an incredible talent as a facilitator and as a coach. A talent that enables her to empower others to grow.”
Chief People Officer
“I loved today’s session
It was really inspiring to talk so candidly and openly as a team. It also gave me an amazing toolset to armour me with as I go through my leadership journey.”
Chief Financial Officer
“After 15 years as an HR professional, giving 200% of myself, coaching and advising others and wondering why I often felt under-appreciated and tired, Lindsay has coached me to crack the nut for myself.
She expertly steered my thinking to realise how much of an inner self-critic I had and the bearing this was having on how I presented to the world and importantly, how the world presented itself to me. I have levelled up professionally and personally. I am now focused on achieving the impact I want to have on the world and enjoying doing that.”
Director of People
“I found the framework really useful and applicable.
It wasn’t forced learning and I genuinely feel closer to my colleagues”
Chief of Staff
“Lindsay has been an amazing coach, helping me thrive through a variety of challenging situations, meet imposter syndrome head on and walk un-phased into high-level business environments with ease and an empowered perspective.
My own self-awareness and values have been enhanced throughout the sessions to take me forward as a business leader and nurturer of our future female business leaders.”
Chief Operations Officer
“Lindsay has the hard to come by but incredible gift of making you face and conquer difficulties, without even realising you may be doing so.
Her calm, reassuring manner often provides needed faith that you are not alone in the challenges you are experiencing within the work place (but also outside of it) – and that solutions can always be found. Innovative approaches to understand more about yourself and your actions, what is important to you, both short and long term goals - allow for a refreshing perspective that is more about self-exploration rather than being told a specific thing. Without realising it, you’re led to a place of accomplishment, peace and confidence with a key focus on always looking forward and not back.”

Authenticity is the daily practice of letting go of who we think we’re supposed to be and embracing who we are
“Loved the session this morning. I took a lot from it personally and am hearing rave reviews from others.
People are setting up in-person meet ups and starting ‘Lead Together’ slack channels to continue their conversations. You have managed to inspire a wave of curiosity and excitement about leadership in just 3 hours! Thank you so much.”
Director of People
“As a small senior leadership team we wanted to understand how we could work more effectively together to solve challenges and maximise opportunities quickly, so we engaged Lindsay to coach us as a team.
From the very first session, every member of the team was engaged wholeheartedly and we learned a great deal about how each of us operate and relate to each other. Lindsay introduced us to a shared vocabulary, which helped us address issues as they arose in the sessions and has continued to help us on a daily basis. Lindsay’s flexible style allowed for us to tackle immediate problems that came up as well as working through our longer-term goals.
Our systems coaching with Lindsay was not only beneficial for us as a team but for each of us as individuals. For me personally, the learning from these sessions has helped me grow both as a professional and in other systems I am part of. I cannot recommend it enough.”
Chief People Officer
“Lindsay has been an incredible coach.
I wasn’t sure what to expect at first but over the last 3 years, she has been a constant. Lindsay has adapted and been just what I have needed with each different challenge that I have faced. She has guided me through some fundamental business coaching as well as addressing specific points around communication. She has always provided a nurturing environment that has allowed me to be expressive and confident about sharing my views. Lindsay also asks some quite probing questions, often challenging my thinking, but always in such a calm manner. I always look forward to these sessions.”
Technical Talent Recruitment
“Lindsay and I worked together during my second maternity leave. I felt comfortable with my return but wanted to investigate what coaching could offer me.
I have returned to work full of confidence, energised to start a new challenge in my role and most importantly, I feel I have returned bringing a new side of me to my professional life, to my benefit and to the benefit of my team. There is so much I have learned on maternity leave and Lindsay has given me tools to take this back with me to work. What has been so important is that Lindsay has made sure I always go back to my values and has given me the tools to make sure I don’t lose sight of them when I’m caught up in the challenges of work life. Over the time we worked together, Lindsay constantly adapted her approach and focus to address any areas that came up. This bespoke approach ensured that I got the most from the experience. I plan to use the tools given to me for years to come. Thank you Lindsay!”

“Working with Lindsay even on issues that were often very challenging has always been a pleasure.
Over the years I have worked with a number of coaches who have very good technical knowledge and an ability to deploy the right tools but never have I worked with anyone that has Lindsay’s intuitive feel and timing. This applied not only to introspective exercises but also perhaps more importantly to team sessions, the results of which exceeded even my best hopes. This was definitely the first time in my career that I felt that business coaching was crossing into my non-work life and displaying tangible benefits there also.
I can’t imagine a scenario now where I no longer work with Lindsay and I eternally grateful for all that she has done not only for me, but also my various business interests and colleagues”

Viktor E Frankl
“Lindsay has an amazing ability to create a relaxed but stimulating learning environment, which allows people to absorb information and reflect on their own situation so that learning becomes highly relevant to them.
She is engaging, positive, encouraging and well informed. We have really enjoyed working with her and all of our leaders have benefited from both team sessions and individual coaching sessions. They have been able to transfer their learning to their working environment.”
“Being reasonably new to a strategic role I was connected with Lindsay through my CEO.
Lindsay took the time to understand my position, and to draw out key themes that would help me to develop. The sessions we had, had a nice balance of exploring the reasons behind certain behaviours and practical solutions to improving working practices. I would highly recommend using Lindsay’s services if you have the opportunity.”
Strategic Relationship Manager
“Lindsay has been an absolutely fantastic coach, offering experience and opening up my focus and abilities within my role.
Having struggled with direction and questioning my own capabilities Lindsay returned my confidence as well as implementing coping mechanisms and organisational skills within the workplace to promote attention to detail and increase productivity. Lindsay was a pleasure to work with and immediately made me feel at ease and confident about what I wanted, as well as needed, from coaching.”
The Ehlers-Danlos Support UK
“I approached Lindsay in the summer of 2017 for some public speaking support. I had just embarked on a journey to become an approved political candidate in the 2018 local elections.
During our sessions we worked through some entrenched beliefs I held concerning my ability and explored ways to manage this in order that I could maintain my focus, energy and attention. Lindsay worked in a very experiential way, which enabled me to really connect with what I was feeling. And I walked away with tools that can be applied to multiple aspects of my life, which I found most helpful.
Working with Lindsay has fundamentally shifted my perception of and relationship with public speaking. I thank Lindsay for her continued support.”
Candidate for Local Council Election 2018
“I have had the pleasure of working with Lindsay both as a coach for individuals within the team and personally.
Working with individuals within the team, Lindsay really takes the time to understand what all parties are looking to get out of coaching and revisits this to ensure that it is achieved, often with many, many additional insights, which genuinely help the individual along the way.
One of Lindsay’s wonderful assets is that she is able to work with different kinds of people whatever their role, level or challenge through her open, flexible and professional approach.
Having been lucky enough to have Lindsay as my coach, I can honestly say that she is the best I have ever worked with. I continue to use a lot of what came out of my sessions on an ongoing basis and some of the breakthrough moments really made a big difference in my life.
I really cannot recommend Lindsay enough.”
Chief People Office
“Lindsay has gained respect from all of our staff, from senior management and right through the organisation, by her calm, friendly, inspirational approach.
Lindsay really listened to what we needed and delivered consistent messages and learning throughout each team.
She is a truly expert coach and knowledgeable trainer, able to get the best from a team and really get individuals thinking as to how they will achieve both their own personal goals as well as STL’s. We enjoyed all the practical exercises and participative sessions. No death by PowerPoint in Lindsay’s sessions! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lindsay to other companies or individuals.
Sales & Marketing Director
STL Group Ltd
“I really was rather unsure exactly what to expect, but the coaching experience Lindsay provided me with turned out to be exactly what I needed.
She provided a private, nurturing, yet challenging forum for me to approach the way I was feeling and the emotions I was experiencing about returning to work.
I felt empowered to return with a new attitude, a fresh approach and a confidence I had wanted to experience but had not been able to before. Lindsay’s professional and warm approach allowed me to relax and gain to the most possible from each session. I am so grateful!”
“Lindsay’s coaching has been integral in giving me the confidence to make career decisions that were long overdue and to rebuild my faith in myself.
I come out of our coaching programme a happier, more motivated and self-assured person. Thank you Lindsay.”
Coaching and Workforce Manager
“This was the first time I had a coach but believe Lindsay is a fantastic one. She is very sensitive, friendly and skilled.
She showed the knowledge and perspicacity necessary to help me achieve my objectives and made a strong effort to find out what were areas I needed to work on both at work and outside work. I have overcome some fears that had gripped me for many years and am now more assertive than I used to be. I feel more at ease with people I do not know well, and find it easier to let stuff go. More importantly, I have become more confident in my own abilities. In summary, it has been a very pleasant and rewarding experience.”
