East Anglian Air Ambulance “This training is revolutionary” - EAAA Manager “The training sessions have been really interesting, engaging and eye-opening!” - Human Resources Manager EAAA “EAAA were voted in the top 7 social impact employers - I put that partly down to KindaListening training.” “Your workshop has helped me restructure the way I work on all levels.” “Your training really is life changing.” - Director of Fundraising - EAAA
The Leadership Team at the Recovery College - NSFT “The deeper understanding of listening from KindaListening training has really helped build my confidence to listen more meaningfully to others. The practice of deep listening has also had a calming effect on me – I’ve even chosen to start to listen to Classic FM on my drive home from work instead of the usual news stations. It has helped to increase my mindfulness, at work and at home, and the increased sense of connectedness it has brought is palpable.” – NHS Operational Manager and KindaListening participation 'Stimulating and thought provoking, the course introduced me to some new ideas and concepts which I will practice.’ - Recovery College Tutor
Clarion Housing "Where do I begin? Perhaps by admitting that to write a review of my coaching experience with Linda is truly impossible. What happens when you meet with Linda is beyond words and often beyond comprehension. It’s a magical transformation in the present moment, and a truly different experience from anything you might have learned to know as ‘coaching’. As a counsellor and coach, I’ve taken the time to re-assess my view of the world and my place in it & whilst doing so, I met other counsellors/coaches and experienced a variety of styles and approaches. The only thing I can say is that if there is someone better than Linda, I’ve not yet met them. Linda’s ability to listen, be present with you extraordinary. I have often come into our session ‘unprepared’, just ready to see what wants to happen and what needs to come up. Each time I’ve met Linda, I felt like I’ve been able to dive deeper into myself than ever before and discover something new. Every single deep dive felt safe – because of Linda being there with me. Holding the space for me and supporting me more than I could have asked for. If you’re undecided, I do recommend that you give it a try. Talk to Linda and see for yourself. I’m confident that your experience (and your review) will be as positive as mine." RB - Project Manager Community Services & Coaching Manager
“I will continue to use the tools and approaches you have shown me in day to day life and to keep a healthy balance in my life” -Service Manager Clarion/Centra "I would like to say a MASSIVE thank you for coaching me and being part of my journey. My sessions with you really helped me to grow and develop not only as a coach but as a person. Our sessions helped me improve my relationship with my step daughters, and I looked at making time for my own wellbeing this enabled me to have a better work/life balance. You really motivated me to make positive changes. You have a lovely supportive coaching style and I felt we always had honest and open conservations, After a session with you I felt so light like I was walking on air! I do believe our coaching sessions were magical. Linda you empowered me to be the best possible version of myself. Take care keep sharing the magic." - Caroline - Project Manager /Coaching Manager
"Dear Linda I wanted to write to thank you for the amazing support and encouragement you have offered as my coach over the last few months. Every session with you has been inspiring, thought-provoking and many have challenged me to think differently about where my journey is taking me, where I want to go as well as how I identify myself. As you know, the last few months have brought about considerable personal challenges, including changes in my work life and, consequently, the way I have identified myself. It has also come at a time when I have been exploring complex personal relationships and the influence this has on my own self-perception. Whilst there is still a large part of my journey to continue, your support, the visualisations you have worked through with me and conversations we have had have helped to clarify my values, priorities and self-esteem. Following my last session I feel more grounded, have greater understanding of myself and a level of confidence I don’t believe that I have ever felt. From learning what I don’t want, I have by definition, identified what is a priority for me. As you know, I am a massive advocate of coaching and the magic that happens within the coaching relationship. It is very clear to me that were you able to bottle the magic you offer to people, the world would be a richer and kinder place and you would be a rich woman! Self-reflection with a someone (you!) who gives unconditional positive regard, who listens deeply, and intuitively understands has been powerful and up-lifting. Thank you so much for helping me to recognise my inner resources, my talents and for helping me to recognise the things that are holding me back (enabling me to move forward from the them). I will continue to use the tools and approaches you have shown me in my day to day life and to keep a healthy balance in my life. I hope that we can keep in touch and I would love to share developments as they happen. I will also be happy to recommend you and your amazing talents if you ever need it.
With the warmest of wishes for you and sincerest gratitude.

KindaListening Training in the Community “I will apply what I’ve learned in how I listen to myself and allow myself space to be, and therefore allow others who I connect with the same care and compassion.” “This is such a worthwhile project and I wanted to express my absolute gratitude for the benefits to my life . This is my feedback from my heart in support of this project. A heartfelt , THANK YOU ! “ “Offering an alternative to what is currently available, which is mostly NHS funded talking therapies, mostly CBT based, a one size fits all which, completely misses the integration process that Kinda listening facilitates.” - mental health worker “Effective training to really help communities, yet a simple one!” “Linda is putting information out into the world that is deeply needed, in my opinion, to evolve the way we communicate and our relationships.”
