It is important to me that I provide a great service and that people who meet and work with me have a positive experience. I wanted to share feedback received so that you can see what others have said about their experiences. Please do get in touch if you would like to chat further.
I completed a learning & development programme with Insight Coaching & Consultancy Ltd with Lesley Sinclair which included:
- Decision making, accountability and managing conflict effectively
- Delegation and time management
- Leadership and communication skills and easy to follow
- EQ360 appraisal
I wish I had done this course a few years ago. The delivery of the course was of a high standard and easy to follow. The course and the mentoring from Lesley have given me a lot more confidence in my job role at SVR. I found Lesley very approachable at any time. I would highly recommend any training delivered through Lesley. I look to more training/workshops through Insight training.

Lesley delivered training remotely over two sessions with a small group of 4 staff attending each session; The theory being done from different rooms and the practical aspect being done with Social distancing and PPE to reduce any Covid infection risks to the staff. Lesley was supported in her assessment by an experienced member of staff who was able to observe practice first hand. The training was successful and feedback from staff was positive. The delivery of training had been well thought out and Covid risks were considered accordingly. I would recommend the training provided as this has meant our staff group have been able to maintain their skills.

Coaching for me, has given me the tools needed to progress in my career. I have been both challenged and inspired throughout the programme with a lot of reflecting along the way. I now have a clear pathway forward and can certainly recommend this to anyone who is experiencing obstacles that need to be overcome
Lesley is amazing! She has helped us in so many different ways and has consistently delivered an exceptionally professional and quality product in all areas. Areas within which Lesley has proven herself to excel:
- The training of care staff with exceptional feedback on her effectiveness, approachability, enthusiasm and clarity. The evaluation, consultation and creation of a detailed and fully compliant company policy and procedures manual with an exceptional level of detail and accuracy.
- The delivery of senior level coaching and mentoring package with immediate positive and tangible outcomes for management staff.
- The analysis and development of fully legislatively compliant training packages for the care sector.
Most of all though, Lesley is a pleasure to work with, is passionate, personable and lights up the office when she’s here. I can’t recommend her highly enough. Let her have a look at your business. It will only benefit you.

I felt nurtured and I felt the process was very gentle, very encouraging, very supportive and also very illuminating in that it lit my way forward. Like I was lost in darkness and you came along and shone a light on me which penetrated the darkness sufficiently for me to find my path.
Lesley is extremely friendly and helped to create a comfortable environment to have an open and frank discussion, enabling me to share things which I’d otherwise find quite challenging to speak about. The sessions I had made me a more confident person and we worked together to create some very positive goals which I’m pleased to say I have achieved.
Lesley, through discussion told me that she has recently finished her coaching course and was looking for some volunteers. I was only half listening (Sorry Lesley) as was my normal as I had so much to do that my mind was always racing ahead. It was a couple of weeks later when I was having some work related problems that I remembered the word coaching and stupidly (NOW) thought Lesley could coach me with this. My perception at that time was that I would meet with Lesley tell her my woes and she would help me fix them. How wrong was I …… read more
My amazing view!
I completed Life Coaching with Lesley in June and I found her a fantastic support. Lesley used various models and tools to support my decision making around a particular life decision. Lesley was personable and creative, and she adapted her approach if we seemed to be reaching a dead end. I would go back to her again for support and I’ve no hesitation in recommending her.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Lesley in partnership settings around themes such as workforce strategy and organisational development. Lesley is a positive and creative collaborator and is very experienced in bringing people and perspectives together to coproduce work and get the best out of people and their ideas.

Lesley is a fantastic coach. I wouldn’t have achieved nearly the same results on my own and I put this down to Lesley really holding me to account and probing with deep, insightful questions which really left me thinking about my session for days after! She has a natural ability to create a safe and open space, allowing you to share your innermost thoughts and she has the confidence to challenge you in a kind and supportive way. To anyone looking for a coach who has your genuine progress at heart, I would thoroughly recommend Lesley.
Lesley is an excellent coach and has really helped me realise my potential and overcome my own self-destructive negative thoughts and I cannot thank her enough for her coaching.
