"For the first time, in a long time, I felt energised with a lot of positivity. During our first session, we talked about practical short-term measures and I felt very interested in the future."
Studying strengths has led to new found confidence in tricky situations i.e. being more courageous and trying to restore a rift in a relationship.
"I am very grateful for your help with my CV and in thinking things through in terms of next steps. The strengths finder information was really helpful as well as the tips you gave me on writing my CV. I have been applying for various jobs and I have now been offered one! I am very pleased and looking forward to starting that. Thank you very much again for all your help, I have really appreciated it."
Since our initial contact, I witnessed her high competence and professionalism. Throughout several coaching sessions, Jenny demonstrated a great level of interest to deeply understand my professional background, skills and competences. Her approach was very methodological leaving no gap in identifying my potentials and desires, and how to bridge them. Thanks to her I could see the next step in evolution of my career. I strongly recommend Jenny Butter’ services.”
"I am a small business owner, wife, and mother. From South Africa, the time difference is an hour apart and our scheduled coaching sessions via Skype, make Jenny very easily accessible without me having to factor in travel time into my already hectic schedule. Our Skype sessions have been clear and seamless. I have to tell you that I have felt such relief at the epiphany of giving something up, that I have decided to actually give a lot up, and not to add anything to my plate unnecessarily. Jenny has empowered me to say “no” to things that I was never able to say “no” to previously. My only regret is not having had life coaching with Jenny earlier, as I have missed out, in part, on the quality of family life that I am having now."
Before life coaching, I had so many thoughts swimming round my head; things I ought to be doing, doing more often or doing better and every day that went by left me feeling a bit like I had failed again. Life coaching has helped me sort out which actions are the most important and made me commit to fulfilling them. We worked out together how I could fit these extras into my life with very little effort at all. Life coaching has also left me with the skills I need to address new problems – I’m a better planner now and am keen for new challenges rather than see them as ‘another thing to deal with.
"Jenny delivers a lot of information in a short period of time. She helps to uncover strengths and traits and instructs how to best use those to sell or further oneself in more effective ways. In response to specific questions, Jenny always came well prepared with resources and practical help in those targeted areas. Jenny added real value by enabling me to use those techniques and insights going forward. Something that set Jenny apart for me was her being happy to provide sessions when I needed them on specific areas, rather than requiring a minimum number of sessions, this spoke volumes about Jenny and demonstrated that her focus is on what is best for her clients."
"It has been a pleasure to work in partnership with her [Jenny] to design and fine tune our aspirations for CMS… We have found Jenny to be an extremely gifted, committed and dedicated trainer, who operates with the highest integrity; enabling individuals to feel at ease, as well as sensitive to their needs. She is an excellent communicator who has sound judgment, excellent listening skills and a good sense of humour. Therefore Jenny Butter has our highest recommendation."
"Excellent balance of programme activities, adaptable and creative. We were able to take what was relevant. Very real and practical."
I had never been excited about any career options before, but now there are two that excite me.
"Jenny is professional and easy to work with. She has a knack of listening to all the information you give her and then pinpointing exactly what is needed to move forward. She provided some useful ideas for managing my instructing commitments and structuring them into a long-term plan – a skill I found difficult to implement on my own."
“Jenny helped us get our mindset right as we faced an important transition in our professional lives. She led us to focus in on the essential factors and to set our priorities right. We found our sessions with her very helpful. “
"I found Jenny after looking at a LOT of coaches online. I checked her website against others in and around the South of England and the more I read, the more comfortable I felt. The issues I went to Jenny with were dragging me down, leaving me depressed and at my wits end. After the first session with Jenny, I felt my spirits lifted. She gave me the confidence to do things I wanted to do which in turn brushed away the depression. After the second session, I saw everything going up. And since then I have felt on top of the world. I genuinely don’t think I’d of been able to do this without Jenny’s help. Look no further than Epiphany Life Coaching. 5*"
“My new job has brought the autonomy I've wanted, combined with good, clear communication with SLT and the freedom to do my job when/where I want. Right now, for our family, this is the right job for me. I feel well in myself and feel like I'm returning to who I am. I wanted to personally thank you for helping me at the start of this journey because without your advice and encouragement I wouldn't have fully understood my gifts and may never have felt brave enough to really go for it.”
"I had an excellent session with Jenny who put me completely at ease from the start. The sensitive issues that I had disclosed in a starter kit were handled with confidentiality and empathy. In our meeting, Jenny was quick to identify my needs and we spent nearly ninety minutes developing confidence and skills in interview techniques. I was feeling slightly depressed before this session and left it feeling confident and assured."
"If you are reading this there’s a good chance that you want to make a change in some area of your life. If you are anything like me you may have tried for some time but found yourself coming up against familiar barriers. When I contacted Jenny I really had no idea what to expect. Part of me wanted Jenny to just point out what was wrong and to give me a simple solution with no effort on my part. A penny dropped for me when I realised that…personal change is not a spectator sport. Of course, it does involve some thinking but ultimately that thinking must underpin a call to action. I wholeheartedly recommend Jenny; she encouraged me to see both my own bigger picture and importantly to focus in on the detail and on the actions where real change actually happens."
"I would recommend the ‘life coaching’ experience to anyone who was at a crossroads and unsure about which way to go. The work you did with me regarding ‘choices’ really struck a chord and has truly helped me to make healthy changes to my lifestyle. I have lost two stones in weight and feel that you were an enormous help to me in this. I still have a long way to go weight-wise but already I feel more energetic and pleased with myself. I am enjoying going through my wardrobe and taking things to the charity shop. It has been surprisingly easy, I suppose, to lose this weight – I guess it is such a relief to feel truly committed. So thank you again, Jenny.”
"Jenny has been a wonderful coach. She has helped me a lot in my job search and it is because of her guidance that before the end of our session I got an internship with a renowned company. Apart from the job search, she has also provided guidance regarding cultural differences. I can confidently say that my time spent with Jenny has been totally rewarding, her coaching style has boosted my confidence. I highly recommend Jenny as a Coach."
"I was finding my work/home life balance hard. I told Jenny my priorities and she enabled me to move forward. Together we identified my skills and found a new direction for me. I have had a career change and am now training to be a psychotherapist. I feel much happier and my home life and future look good."
The course has made me refocus on what makes me feel purposeful and has given me the confidence to persist.
"What Jenny does is nothing short of magic and I absolutely believe that everyone should experience this just to show you what you are capable of. This should be mandatory in schools/colleges/workplaces as it would save so much confusion and bring so much happiness and purpose. Jenny is extremely professional with such a lovely, caring and personable nature about her. Before you know it, your life has an excitingly fresh direction, full of confidence, using your own inherent capabilities!"
"There is something very liberating about being able to think out loud with Jenny. I had two big projects weighing on my mind when I started with Jenny: planning a trip to America and my imminent retirement, thanks to her I am now able to look forward to both of these with confidence."
"I wanted to say a proper thank you for your time and focus on me over these past few months. I feel like I’ve been on a journey of discovery during which you’ve helped me reconnect with the ‘real me’. It hasn’t always been easy but you’ve provided just the right amount of encouragement along the way. I feel able to make better decisions and prioritise for ‘me’ rather than trying to do things for everyone else. I’m going to miss our regular session but at least I have the tools and confidence with which to move forward. A huge thank you again and would totally recommend!"
"The Life Balance Retreat was just what my life needed: Stop, Listen, Recalibrate and Go."
"Life coaching has enabled me to become more disciplined so I can achieve what I want in life. Jenny coaches me in an amazing way. When we discuss something I want to achieve, she asks ME how I think I could move forward and that is good because no-one knows me better than myself. I know that what I will do will actually help me."
"Prior to working with Jenny I knew I couldn’t carry on with my career the way it was but the problem was that I didn’t know how to change it. Jenny got me thinking about my priorities in life and made me think outside the box when exploring job options. When I found the job of my dreams she was brilliant in helping me prepare for my interview. I now have a job that I am really excited about and it suits both me and my family! Thank you, Jenny!"
"I found her retreat to be Focused, gentle, purposeful and helpful. she created an atmosphere...which enabled trust. This was essential and enabled me to take an honest look at my life its strengths and challenges. I was given help on a 1:1 basis as well as useful information in a group setting. As a result, there has been space to process stuff that has felt overwhelming and I have left with practical realistic steps to help me."
"Strengths-Based Teamwork training... "We wanted to sincerely thank you for leading such a stimulating day! We all found it so useful and we all very much enjoyed the way you facilitated the sessions and moved between them. Thanks so much for your flexibility and your patience in getting to grips with the different team emphases within the Directorate. A number of us were amazed that you remembered things about us from the individual strength finding workshop. Do come again, Jenny, you have been a blessing to us".
I have a vision and a purpose and am excited about my next steps
Jenny from Epiphany Life Coaching has been fab - steering me through troubles waters, helping to keep my vision and goals in sight and being just at the end of the Skype phone.
