Sheela is an excellent coach, combining astute insight, support, curiosity, and a sense of fun. She combines a sense of real grounded professionalism with a light openness of just being with the topic and person at hand without judgement.
During the three months we worked together, we covered a range of diverse topics. While all were valuable, the session that most stands out was where I redefined what’s important to me – my values. As a coach, I defined these several years ago, before having children; now on the other side of having children, I had a hunch they might have shifted. Thanks to Sheela’s creative, multi-dimensional exercises, combined with her coaching, intuition and challenge, I came up with four new values, only keeping one original value! Having what’s important to me clear and easy to factor in when making decisions is an empowering place to be as I start a new chapter in my life.
Sheela is a lifelong learner, a strong coach, and a warm, grounded person and I thoroughly recommend her to other coaches – and people more generally.”

Sheela is a fantastic coach and supervisor who gets consistently amazing feedback from all the coaches on our team she supervises at The Joyful Doctor.
She is a delight to work with – always full of ideas and motivation and an excellent role model for how to look after ourselves when looking after others. I cannot recommend Sheela highly enough, she’s brilliant!

I had a focused and incredibly helpful coaching session with Sheela today. It was up-beat and dynamic and yet she somehow also gave me the space to think – and arrive at – my thoughts. I felt supported by her easy warmth throughout, though her challenge really helped me to see where I am.
I felt so energised afterwards – thanks Sheela!
Can I have a session from the beach hut after lock down please!?
I am lucky to have managed to secure her time, especially at short notice. I wholeheartedly recommend getting in touch with her.

Supervision with Sheela has impacted how I run my coaching practice so positively that my coaching and mental well-being have improved. This means I am now enjoying coaching again and showing up more for the people I partner with. I feel I can say anything I want to Sheela, and she always seems to be able to ask the right questions to allow me to explore my own ‘stuff’ more. I highly recommend hiring Sheela as your coach supervisor;
I am glad I did.

Hi Sheela, I just wanted to say thank you so much for the supervision today and I hope it was an OK use of the space. It was incredibly helpful for me.
I’ve had a very productive day and got confirmation from my practice of work for the month at least so that’s great. I find your style so fabulously empowering and creative. Thank you.

Mentor Coaching with Sheela was a wonderfully affirmative experience. She gave me the space to see where and why I felt stuck with my coaching, and asked insightful questions that helped me see what I wanted to do differently.
Even more importantly for me at the time she helped me recognise what I was doing well and encouraged me to build on this.

I really valued my time with Sheela, we covered a lot of ground during our 121 mentor coaching.
Every session there was a tangible increase in my confidence and ability thanks to Sheela’s coaching and guidance and I now feel in a much better space to embark on my coaching journey.
Head of Wellbeing and Mental Health First Aider
I worked with Sheela within a coaching supervision group and I have found her input as a supervisor invaluable.
Sheela’s questions are as thoughtful as they are concise and precise; she challenges one’s thoughts while remaining kind and warm at all times. As a result, I have seen her deliver real change to people’s ways of thinking – including my own. She ignites the desire in people to put their newly found inspiration into action.
Her well-timed observations and excellent time management round one’s impression of being in the hands of a skillful coach; the fact that her delivery is so nonchalant about her considerable skills makes the whole experience as enjoyable as it is useful.
