"During my coaching sessions with Laura, I was being in the presence of a mentor with experience, people skills and genuine interest in me, giving me the feeling of confidence and best intentions. Laura has given me constructive feedback without any criticism, putting things in the right perspective by helping me find my purpose and values. Thanks to her coaching, I feel that I have become more positive and effective in my personal and business life, i.e. feeling more in control and coping better with difficult challenges. Being helped to find my own path, I recommend Laura to my colleagues and business partners."
