"A clear passion for the subject and depth of knowledge. Clear simple slides, easy to understand".  C. Childs, ReAssure, Practical Strategies for Managing and Resolving Conflict seminar for Chartered Institute of Management Accounting

“On behalf of our staff team I want to thank Catherine and Sean most sincerely for leading us so creatively and warmly this week. The whole team really appreciated the 2 days and the time has been most effective in helping [new team members] settle in and for all of us in developing our relationships.” Rev Adrian Argyle, Regional Minister, Heart of England Baptist Association (HEBA)


“There is a real sense that we understand each other better and have started to work more effectively as a team. It is  great and will really benefit you individually and as a group. It has the potential to improve your team efficiency.” Amy Wyatt, Assistant Pastor, Swanbank Methodist, Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent


"Breadth of Material available, clear explanations - skilful management of contributions. Gave me hope!" (Calming the Storm, conflict resolution workshop)

David Greenwood

“I have found this last two days to be helpful in releasing me into my new ministry and also in the team building of our regional team. There has been time to reflect, laugh, listen to one another, share from the heart and be honest with one another. Sean and Catherine have a gentle sensitive leadership style which has been most helpful in facilitating a worthwhile training experience.” Alison MacKay Regional Minister, HEBA


"Sean your questions were timely and thoughtful. You helped me process some difficult situations and experience some "light bulb moments," of great clarity. Your questions got to the heart of the issue and there were some clear, helpful, and illuminating challenges." Anne Danks, former church leader now working for Food Bank.

“I wanted to thank you for everything you’ve done Cath – through your sessions you’ve helped me tackle complex and life-changing situations, helped me to look at things a different way and uncovered some startling revelations which will truly stay with me.  I can’t thank you enough for the approach you took in the sessions.  You are an excellent coach.  You have a way with words and a calm, logical and thorough approach to issues which is extremely helpful.” Helen, Personnel Officer

"It was excellent. Lots of content and a lovely relaxed leader who helped the group take manageable steps through the topics. I learned a lot and found a lot of insight. It revealed a number of my flaws to me." (Calming the Storm, conflict resolution workshop)



"The Myers Briggs work Sean did with me gave me a greater awareness of my strengths and my weaknesses. Far from putting me in a box it helped me identify areas for my personal development. I now have a far better understanding of the similarities and differences I have to others." Andy Kind- professional comedian, author.

"Thank you Sean, your comments are very challenging, very well expressed and insightful. You are skilled and possess much knowledge of the human mind. I am sure you will not be surprised that I am in total agreement with you. Thank you for your input and concern. Looking forward to seeing you again."

Paul D.
