Jen’s demeanour is just so easy to have an honest conversation with. There’s no feeling of being judged if you haven’t done what you committed to doing. If something was ever causing us a bit of grief, it was easy to talk to Jen, get her thoughts and create a plan to move forward.

She listens incredibly well and really cares for what we have to say as well as what’s going on in our private lives. Jen encouraged us to think differently about our project. With little experience in starting a non-profit organisation, Jen helped us set up the foundation aspects and treat it as if it were a fully functioning, successful operation. Often times we had so many different ideas and directions we wanted to take and Jen was like a sounding board, she encouraged us to pursue what we really wanted and was also there to guide is into the right areas. I think that Jen really helped us stay accountable to the little things, the basics.

Things like building lists and organising jobs/roles into an order that made sense and in the right chronological order. Without that help we could have been working on the wrong thing for the time. Our journey with Jen has not been what I would imagine the typical challenges she faces with her clients. It’s been an extremely personal and emotional journey so far with what we are trying to achieve and Jen provided us with a pair of ears and a huge heart to get us through some big hurdles.

We owe a lot to Jen, the challenges she’s given us, the contacts she’s provided and just the support and belief in us!

You will not find a more dedicated, genuine and ‘real coach’ then Jennifer West. Jen has made an enormous difference in me achieving my business goals and dreams, and in a very short time!  What I love about Jen is she is kind, compassionate, has a wicked sense of humour, and doesn’t let you get away with anything!

She makes you accountable, is the eternal solid rock of support and encouragement, and has a way of framing things which, at times challenges and confronts you, but is exactly what is needed. Jen helped me with my goal of starting a new career in running, whilst getting my current career in Health/Wellness to support it. My business idea was about creating and delivering Beginner Running Courses to adults, and then having the course replicated and delivered by other coaches nationally. The only problem was that I was terrified of teaching and speaking in front of people.

I had coached ‘one on one’, but never in a group setting.  It was this insurmountable hurdle (mostly in my head) that stopped me from taking any action.  Resulting in putting courses off, feeling a failure before even beginning, and feeling more and frustrated.  In the first session Jen challenged my thinking and behavioural patterns, and broke the insurmountable into bite size achievable chunks.  Whilst helping me to see the reality of my fears and what support I needed to overcome them, including keeping my current business afloat. Seven weeks later I delivered my first beginner running course to 6 people. And I absolutely loved it!!

Five months on and I am halfway through delivering my second beginner course; first intermediate course; and have coaches set up in Sydney and South Brisbane. I could not have gotten my idea this far, in this short amount of time, without Jen and I will be eternally grateful.  As a sole trader, small business owner and entrepreneur, I highly recommend Jen as a Coach to help you get where you want to be.  Be warned – it will happen!!!  Guaranteed.

I have had the pleasure of receiving coaching and mentoring from Jen within a personal and professional capacity.

I am a strong advocate for her unique and insightful approach and highly recommend her services to anybody who wishes to receive a professional, well-balanced, intuitive and empowering coaching program.

I have experienced great success with Jen’s coaching program specifically within the areas of stress management, goal setting and achieving, professional development, and career development and management within a small business framework.

After trying various coaches and coaching methods, Jen’s approach is by far my favourite and honestly one by which I have received the most benefit.

Working with Jennifer was a rewarding and inspirational process. When my partner was given a life changing opportunity to work overseas I needed help as our plans to move went ahead full throttle.

Jen lead me to draw on my existing capabilities and knowledge, guiding me through exercises and strategies that I will continue to use into the future. Through her guidance I learned I already had what I needed within me, and she helped me work through my fears and anxieties about quitting my job of 11 years and moving away from my comfort zone to the opposite side of the world. The outcome?

My partner and I are in the final stages of moving our lives, my career and life goals and core beliefs are clearer to me than ever and I look forward to finding new work and fulfillment in a new country.
