Testimonials

I was lucky enough to work with Simi while I was faced with some very difficult career choices. I found her help invaluable in helping me step back and really understand what was important. I would highly recommend her to anyone struggling to get clarity on the next steps in their career.

Kathleen
Head of Global Transformation, HSBC

I was a client of Simi’s on a Women in Leadership course I attended. She was the main facilitator and coach for my group. I would thoroughly recommend Simi as a leadership coach - she had an amazing impact on myself and the rest of my group. Although the course was delivered digitally, Simi’s skills meant that the impact was the same as if it had been delivered in person. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Simi again for coaching and leadership in the future.

Head of Engineering, Chivas Brothers 

Simi is my leadership and business coach for the last few months now. She is very versed in bringing empathy & understanding, and helping me navigate through some different challenges and scenarios. She has an excellent memory and would remember every conversation we had and would always start the session with a smile and a good check on the past week or weeks. Our conversation always helps me bring out my creativity and resolve concerns that I may throw at her. I was able to focus more on what truly is important with Simi's sessions and see things differently based on conversations we'd had. Our meetings started weekly and moved on to bi-weekly and I believe the video sessions helped as well. My time with Simi is coming to an end by June 2021 and I will absolutely recommend Simi for leadership and business coaching.

Tim
New Technology Introduction & Product Integrity Executive Leader, Parker Hannifin

Simi is a consummate professional who manages to engage you and make you at ease using her humour and great sense of understanding the situation you are facing. She is empathetic encouraging and challenging in helping you find the answers and strategies during the coaching sessions. Her companionship to your self-discovery is an eye opener that helped me work through my values, strengths and weakness thereby working through them to achieve the objectives set out at the start of the sessions. The value exercise helped me identify my values in life both professionally and personally and encouraged me to reflect on ways in which I may be able to achieve greater satisfaction of my values in both my working life and personal life. I would recommend her to any leader intending to improve their leadership skills in both life and career.

Dennis
Key Account Manager, Syngenta

“Wellbeing Face coaching has helped me to boost my confidence and tackle my demons of negative thoughts. I’ve been able to secure the promotion I wanted and have been able to apply the strategies I have learnt. I would definitely recommend coaching with Simi”

Shan
Finance Director

“Simi has a wealth of ideas to draw upon. She creates a safe space to explore and empower, enabling the co-creation of solutions to emerge, inspired by her ideas”

Claire
CEO and  Director
of Practitioners

 "Simi was my leadership coach whilst I transitioned into my new role. She brought a super balance of assertive challenge, empathy & understanding, and creativity when it came to working out what I could do. She has an excellent memory (or super notes system) as she was able to hold up a mirror to help me see things differently based on conversations we'd had. We spoke weekly for an hour by phone which worked extremely well. I absolutely recommend Simi for transition coaching".

Rowena
Talent Strategy Director

Simi has been my coach for the last 3 months. She has been extremely helpful with my challenges. She is a great active listener and very emphatic. She gives exercises that help solve the problems rather than giving direct advice. Asks the right questions and dives into topics deeply. She understands human psychology very well. Thank you Simi:)

Elif
Global Marketing & Brand Strategy, Coca-Cola

Simi has been an inspiration to me and I have learnt a lot from her as my coach. The discussions between us has stretched and pushed me out of my comfort zone. I will forever appreciate the balcony view concept which I can confidently admit has become my way of life. Through her thoughtful approach to leadership I have learnt how to balance priorities and still have room to explore opportunities as a leader. May you continue to bloom and hope more will learn a lot from you.

Flora
Head of Finance, Syngenta 

Simi helped me to develop ways to effectively reflect on some of my leadership behaviours and change the way I perceive situations. This has helped me to better engage with my team and peers and has improved my productivity. I find Simi very knowledgeable and clearly she is highly experienced in coaching methods, which has made the sessions extremely productive and I feel completely at ease to share with her. She provided clear and helpful insight and was able to make me focus on my work priorities and realise my potential by setting out clear and manageable steps to enable me to reflect when needed. I have particularly appreciated Simi’s tailored approach to my particular needs, values and personal situation, providing the support, advice and clarity to move forward in a positive direction.

Wayne
Head of the Chief Executive’s Office, London Borough of Lambeth

“Simi is exceptional in her ability to get to the core of issues, supporting and guiding me with engaging techniques, and not at all judging me. I really looking forward to my sessions with her” 

Tracey
HR Business Partner

“Simi is super easy to talk and open up to, she has a knack for making you instantly feel relaxed, no matter how big or small your goal or challenge is. She uses a range of techniques to address issues and takes a holistic approach. I have noticed considerable results working with Simi”

Andy
CEO

"I really enjoyed my coaching sessions and thank Simi for the work we did together. I got a lot from the strategies and frameworks she introduced me to and I am already using them in my day-to-day work life (and personal life!) The other element I appreciated was Simi's approach to drawing out information and provided healthy challenge to what I was saying. I mentioned prior to the coaching sessions that I didn’t need a cheerleader, I needed someone to challenge my mindset and I definitely felt I got that from her. Also, Simi was able to balance that with being kind and understanding to anything disclosed which was really important.

 

I will definitely be recommending Wellbeing Face to colleagues in the sector".

Krystal
Director of Services

"The combined expertise of Simi and Jeff has been instrumental in delivering a programme that has reinvigorated and refocussed this leadership team to take the next step as we plan for the “new normal”. Their considered and challenging approach built on a wealth of coaching and leadership experience has facilitated Primrose Hospice to look bravely but cautiously to the next stage of this journey, building on the best of the past but more aware of the opportunities of the future".

David
Primrose Hill CEO

I’ve got the clarity and determination to navigate the most difficult and pivotal stage in my career thanks to Simi’s invaluable guidance. I’ve hired Simi as a business coach over a year ago, right as I stepped up to a leadership position in times of organizational change, uncertainty, and expectations being higher than ever. The new role and the challenges at hand started to take a big toll on my motivation, my wellbeing, and my health - I felt I couldn’t deal with the situation without help. I found in Simi a solid and knowledgeable partner to guide me in this difficult journey. Her empathy, listening, and her advice - skillfully tuned to the specifics of my situation - have been remarkable; many times I felt she’s been able to understand me as if she worked next to me on a daily basis! Her guidance really helped me to find a much clearer view of the path forward, but more importantly, induced a deeper personal transformation: to become more self-aware, centered, and confident in my own direction, and with this, grow into a much stronger leader. Right from the first few sessions, I saw a significant change in my frame of mind for the better; her continued advice helped me keep building on my strengths, and bring inspiration and positive change to my team and to others around me. I’m deeply grateful for Simi’s teachings, and I strongly recommend her as a very influential trusted advisor!

Jesus
Director of Project Management, MuleSoft, a Salesforce Company

Simi has been a business coach of mine over the last few months and has been extremely helpful with navigating through a number of challenging topics during this time. Simi has shared some very useful tools and techniques which will support me both personally and professionally. The energy and passion Simi brings to our sessions really is admirable and creates an environment that fosters an open conversation. I would definitely recommend Simi for business and leadership coaching

Luke
Division Commercial & Pricing Manager, Parker Hannifin

Entering into my first senior management position was one of the most exciting opportunities I could imagine however also the most daunting and at times lonely place to be. I was surrounded by people praising my refreshing outlook on work and my enthusiasm to drive services forward but my ‘Lizard Voice’ often provided me with doubt and anxiety.
The opportunity to receive coaching was a welcome one, after an initial session with Simi I felt hugely confident and reassured in her approach. I felt listened to, empowered and confident by Simi’s advice, insight and guidance to support me to reflect and consider what was working well and where there were opportunities for development and growth.
I enjoyed trying new strategies to deal with situations better that perhaps I found challenging and often worked with Simi as an independent person to discuss my thoughts and approach to tasks and management situations. Simi supported me to consider aspects of me that I felt I had lost due to starting to operate in a way I thought the organisation wanted me to rather than what made sense to me and portrayed the best parts of ‘me’.
I had moments of success to share with Simi and moments of despair but either way Simi was a huge support and inspiration to reassure me that I was human and there was nothing I couldn’t overcome by supporting me to find solutions and be confident in being able to be my best self.
I highly recommend Simi and what she has to bring to any individual or organisation, there is nothing that I brought to our discussions where she didn’t have insight and knowledge to share. I will always be grateful and I will certainly always have her number at hand to schedule a session as and when I may need it as I continue my journey in senior management…never stop learning.

“I’ve worked with a number of coaches throughout my corporate career, but what struck me with Simi, was her style of engaging with me, it’s empowering and infectious! She will challenge you and push your thinking, and it forces you to lean into discomfort, but it really works”

Miranda
Creative Director

“I was referred to Simi in a deep time of need when dealing with a crisis of confidence and managing politics at work. Very quickly Simi helped me get a better understanding of the underlying issues and identify quick actions to make things immediately better. I have gone on to introduce other people to work with her based on my good experience”

Nikki
Talent Director

 I have worked with Simi for over a year now an have found her approach and counsel to be thoughtful, informative and supporting. Working through both daily and macro/personal challenges has allowed me to overcome obstacles and focus on what is important to me in my professional life and career. The time i have spent with Simi has been very rewarding and i would recommend Simi to any leader that wants to achieve more in their work.
