“When I met Joanna I was in a tough spot, trying to navigate my way through some difficult political situations within my team and what felt like a very toxic environment.
After an initial conversation, I felt like Joanna would be able to help guide me through the next few months, so I signed up for a 7-session programme.
Joanna got straight to the point, understanding the environment I was in, all the different characters I was dealing with, and she started to help me unpick where the issues were.
We spent a lot of time working out what the problems really were, the direct conversations I needed to have, and also getting me to see things from a different perspective.
