“Jill’s coaching was the best thing I ever did. She helped me let go of years worth of anxiety and gut problems from the coaching sessions that I had. Jill also analysed a recurring dream that I’d been having for years and the outcome of that session was absolutely mind blowing. I’ll be forever grateful to Jill for that and the way it changed me as a person and my life for the better.”
