Today I had the honour of being listened to.
Not an um, ah – ha or mmm…
Just being focused upon and listened to.
I followed the train of thought and watched it as it pulled into different stations to pause a while before setting off again.
I was filled with curiosity and insight.
And then the thought pulled into its final destination and rested.
Thank you Joanne for you deep presence and listening.

“Joanne has talked me through some difficult situations recently, having been recommended by a friend. She did not give answers or solutions, but by asking me questions and getting me to think outwards rather than inwards, courses of actions appeared. I feel better equipped now because I wasn’t advised what to do, rather I was helped to think for myself. I found her calm and friendly manner relaxing – especially as talking about issues is one of the last things most men want to do! Highly recommended.”

I had a “Listening Session” with Joanne and the experience was absolutely fascinating. I was able to talk through some issues I had and able to get to areas of my thoughts and feelings I would never otherwise have arrived at. It was incredibly powerful because I was given the space to think and articulate my thoughts while having the sense of being deeply listened to.

I walked away with clarity and since then have put what I was talking about into action. The result is I am about to launch a new programme in my business. This conversation with Joanne was a vital piece along the way in developing this. I highly recommend anyone to test out this form of coaching with Joanne.

Joanne is an esteemed peer I had the privilege of collaborating with during executive coaching program, Transition Excellence by Rich Litvin.
I was fortunate enough to experience a 1-1, “Deep Listening” session that was nothing short of transformative.
Joanne is masterful at building rapport and creating a safe space to draw out what is really happening in your world.
I was able to dig deep, open up and explore the journey that ensued.
Thank you for your support Joanne.

I’ve had a number of Time to Think and coaching sessions with Joanne. Joanne is calm, approachable, attentive and empathetic. Joanne’s non judgmental approach creates an environment where ideas can be explored and thought through in a non-rushed way. I really valued Joanne’s encouragement to continue to think deeper on a subject than I thought possible, which helped me to gain clarity on my priorities and to understand what I value. Thank you Joanne for your support.

Organisational Development Adviser

Following training by Joanne Young on how to operate efficient meeting procedures to enable everyone to express their views without interruption within a specified time frame. We employed her strategy during a large fact-finding meeting, it was truly amazing how effective it was, everyone felt valued. Those stronger personalities who would normally monopolise meetings struggled with the concept, but soon realised the value gained by listening to others, which then sported new ideas. The meeting finished on time with the agenda fully completed. We will use this process in future meetings, mainly for the time benefits and inclusivity of all participants.

‘I can’t recommend Joanne highly enough. Her coaching style, gentle questioning and thought provoking prompts have helped me a great deal during a particularly difficult phase of my life. She is well-read and proficient in numerous helping strategies. Joanne tuned in to my mind-set with relative ease, making her a trusted confidante and respected adviser.’
