Working with Ashia was a fantastic experience. Most importantly, Ashia helped me identify core issues regarding career, interests, family, and outlook that have been holding me back, and worked with me on a plan to create a better future for myself. Ashia gave me the kick start that I needed to slowly take ownership over the process. Without her, getting started would have been a more unpleasant experience.
Ashia is particularly attentive to nonverbal cues and is willing to state what she senses. Those cues were perhaps the biggest component of our success. While it can be uncomfortable to discuss those topics, it is also important. So this work (or any self-help) is not for the faint of heart, but Ashia felt like a teammate helping me get through it.
In brief, I would summarise my work with Ashia as follows:
- A structured approach to help you create a practical plan
- A willingness to raise and dive into nonverbal cues
- Expects you to commit to the work and do your part
- Smart, compassionate, experienced, wise, funny
- Feels like a teammate and coach at the same time
I highly recommend her for career work or even personal advice. I find that work is a facet of life, so it is important to consider things holistically. Ashia does that, and it is why I enjoyed working with her so much.

I learned so much about myself in every session with Ashia. The focus was on me. Each session began with a clear objective. All the questions she asked really made me think harder about myself, my strengths and what I really want to achieve. There were many moments where I said to myself "Oh, I hadn't thought about this earlier". I left every session feeling organized with clear next steps and highly motivated.

Ashia's listening, questioning and insights in coaching allowed me to become aware of character traits in me that I now use to make a difference and use to focus on what really matters to me. Ashia has a gift in her ability to get beyond surface issues, asks questions that move you above and beyond where even you thought you couldn't go. Every time a conversation ends, I hang up the phone amazed at what has transpired in less than an hour!
Chief Creative Officer, Creative Agency,
I started working with Ashia as I prepared to transition into a senior role in a different industry. She has a unique balance of listening and asking the right questions, which coupled with her extensive experience, I felt there was a good understanding of the journey I was on. As a result of our sessions, I have taken bolder steps, made significantly more progress and feel much more confident in what's ahead of me.
