For anyone - especially for persons with Autism, ADHD or persons looking to be more assertive.

Do you get easily stuck in situations that are escalating and don't know what to do to get out on top? Do you struggle to ask for the things that you want?

Hi I’m Vicky and throughout my career in corporate sales I was fortunate enough to attend training seminars on negotiation, positioning and style-flexing - it's all rather fancy words to say I was taught the skills to be able to recognise and adapt to other people's personalities and modalities so that I can become a better negotatior.

Or manipulator, depending on what side of the conversation you're on. 😉

There are some people with whom I still struggle to speak with. The difference now though is that I have a tried and tested set of tools, tactics and strategies to help me get out of whatever situation I am in.

I had never thought about using my sales training with my family until I decided to set firm boundaries with my own mother. When I realised how pain-free this was, I just knew that there would be value in sharing with everyone else.

Embracing Neurodiversity in the Workplace: A Guide for People Managers In the ever-evolving landscape of the modern workplace, diversity has taken center stage, and rightly so. It's not just a catchphrase anymore; it's a fundamental pillar of building a dynamic, innovative, and thriving organization. While diversity has traditionally been associated with factors like race, gender, and ethnicity, there's a rising recognition of the importance of neurodiversity.

Neurodiversity celebrates the diverse range of neurological differences present among individuals, encompassing conditions such as autism, ADHD, dyslexia, and more. As people managers, it's our duty to embrace neurodiversity, making our workplaces not only more inclusive but also more engaging and diverse. In this article, we'll explore how to actively engage with neurodiverse individuals and adapt our language to foster a more inclusive work environment.

What Clients Say About Me:

Maria - Vicky was calm and never judged my moments of emotional response. When I became confused, she helped to find the logic and a sense of calm.

I felt safe. I felt validated, and I felt like my problems were understood, and that a solution was available.

Vicky is very friendly, and approachable. I felt I could be honest with myself in front of her and that made all the difference in my own healing and plans to move forward.

Can't recommend enough.

Thank you so much Vicky.

Serena - I just had my first session with Vicky, I had no particular expectations at the outset, but was swiftly offered the opportunity to dig very deep into my deep-seated beliefs and together we discovered i have quite a few.

The beliefs hold are not all serving me well. Vicky was able to ensure i felt supported while exploring these areas, and personally i found it transformative. I choose that word carefully, but transformative it was. I’m so excited about what more I can achieve with her guidance.

I am very impressed by Vicky’s skills and how at our very first meeting we achieved SO much. Thankyou.

Adam - Vicky has been instrumental in helping me understand and make sense of various elements of life.

She's taught me how to better identify underlying emotions and expressing them better, as well as giving me the confidence to make key, life-changing decisions which I'd previously been nervous of. For instance, Vicky talked me through my fear of leaving a role for a new one, demonstrating that my fear was borne from one of failure rather than of actual change.

Vicky has helped me when I was really struggling to. Her guidance helped correct me back on track and on path, with an in-depth and knowledgeable assessment helping to identify the right actions to take to get back there.

The key is that Vicky has given me the confidence to not only chase what I want, but also the confidence in myself. Her guidance has given me the self-belief that I was short of, that I'm where I am in life not through luck but through skill and hard work.

​Since my first discussion with Vicky I've had two promotions to senior account manager, with my total pay doubling over the 18 month period. I've also got more responsibilities which I'm handling with self-assurance and drive I didn't have before. Vicky has been an integral part of this growth.

Kryan - I have been supported by Vicky for a few months presently and I feel like a changed person. Vicky possesses all the values of a friendly, approach and a very supportive individual. She is professional, and provides excellent support that is personalised and tailored to my needs. As someone who identifies as neurodiverse, (Autistic spectrum disorder) I quite often find everyday tasks a little overwhelming.

I feel my needs are well-acknowledged and I find the delivery of Vicky’s sessions are exceptionally Person-centred. Vicky takes the time to get to know me so that she can understand my needs in a holistic manner, ensuring that I obtain the most out of her sessions.

The life skills that I am continually learning through Vicky’s coaching is aiding my development, which is supporting me to maximise my full potential and become the person I aspire to be.

Thankyou Vicky!

Jane - For a while I had been toying with the idea of changing my career; it wasn’t my end game or so I

thought. I wanted to do something different and I thought coaching would be something to


So, I decided the best thing to do would be to sit on the other side of the table and experience

coaching first hand. Enter Vic Poole!

I have been seeing Vic for nearly a year now and I thank the universe for finding her for me.

In essence, Vic is my sounding board, my go to!

If you want someone to tell you what to do, then that isn’t Vic.

If you want someone to listen to you, make you think and give you the tools to have in your arsenal

to succeed, then that is Vic.

In 12 months, I am calmer, more confident and self-assured; my thought processes more deliberate

and grounded.

I have been promoted, secured a significant pay rise and I am learning to be accountable to achieve

even greater success.

As it turns out coaching wasn’t my end game, however it has made me re-evaluate my purpose and

that continues to be a work in progress with Vic.
