Simply put, Coaching is where you work with someone to connect with yourself, redesign your environment and your life, and then take action to implement it!

People reach out for executive coaching for so many reasons. Maybe you are looking for some clarity on next career steps, maybe you have an issue with dealing with a difficult relationship at work, maybe you've had some feedback you want to work on...
My coaching practice has grown organically out of consulting work and referrals. In 2017, I formalized my own coaching approach through taking the ORSC Coaching Suite of Courses based on a systems relationship approach to coaching. This approach aligns well with my consulting work and continues to evolve as my understanding of human behavior further develops.
If you are looking for someone to help you along your journey and you aren't afraid to have difficult conversations, please reach out and let's start with an initial conversation to talk about what your goals are and if we are the right fit.
I had the pleasure of working with Hilary over the course of a few months between February - April 2019. Hilary's approach to problems and challenges is calm and collective. Hilary has great listening skills and retains information to use as examples in future sessions. Hilary was able to bring a wealth of theories and scenarios to the table to apply to my situation and was extremely forthcoming with resolutions and confirmations that the actions that I have taken were either correct or incorrect paths of approach.
Hilary, like myself, has a vast amount of life experience whether it be with career choices, relationships, work life balance or personal growth. She was able to adapt to my problem and offer step by step processes to iron out problems.
From working with Hilary, my life is back on track. Although my ultimate goal is still a work in progress, I have found myself again, what I live for, what I believe in and what is important to me. I have a new job which suits better my lifestyle and I have become a more confident person.

I approached Hilary for some executive coaching sessions in 2018 as I sought to improve my communication, effectiveness and impact at work. In a very short period I noticed a huge improvement in myself and my performance. I even had comments from colleagues who noticed a change in my approach. What makes Hilary a brilliant coach is her ability to get 'real' - to get you to confront uncomfortable truths head-on, and identify what you need to do to set and achieve your goals. She is an ongoing support for me as I execute these changes.

Hilary takes the time to really get to grips with the root cause of an individual or team’s challenge. She does this in a discursive way so it’s more like talking with a trusted friend than a pure coach relationship. In this way, outcomes are achieved with the buy in and understanding of all stakeholders.
