“Dear Sally, thank you so much for today, it has been immeasurably brilliant!”  NLP coaching client, MT. August 2014

“As a professional rugby player for over 13 years I have experienced the highs and lows that being a sportsman can bring. Her insight and patience has helped me immensely on and off the pitch. I now have a collection of strategies and tools that she has taught me to use, which means I can deal with all the situations that come my way. I would not hesitate to recommend Sally and I thank her for her contribution.”  Ben Cohen MBE. England Rugby World Cup Champion, Northampton Saints, Sale Sharks & the Global Ben Cohen StandUp Foundation. Sept 2010.

I just wanted to say thank you for everything you have done for me personally. I attended the assertiveness course in Huntingdon, and it has changed my life.  I am still working on what you taught me but I am now able to speak up when I need or want to, able to say “No” when it’s necessary, and am working on making sure that I can put my point across.  I have some belief in myself and am working on having lots of belief in myself.  None of this would have been possible without your course and it’s meant huge personal changes for me particularly at work but also at home.  I rarely have to agonise over things and don’t find myself getting cross with myself for not doing something I should have any longer. Thank you so much for everything.”  AUG 2014  – Client feedback. Sarah K. Cambridge

“Sally Foan….one of the most talented and enriching NLP Masters I have ever had the pleasure to meet!” Tamsin Barks – NLP Trainer of trainers and Director at Thinking That Works. Dec 2012.

“This year has been one of the best ever for me, I have regained confidence and enjoyed many new experiences that seemed beyond reach a year ago. This is in no small part due to your coaching and I still refer back to the skills you taught me in our sessions.” NLP coaching client feedback. Dacorum Borough Council, Housing Manager. Dec 2012
