“It is a fantastic opportunity for me to explore issues in my life which need exploring, and starting to heal certain things in my life. In enjoyed my time with Martha during her life coaching sessions.”
“I met Martha Jesty at a party and I found her to be approachable, warm and easy to talk to - very empathetic. When I was looking for a life coach some time later for my daughter, being a protective mother, I was very concerned that it must be the right sort of person to do the life coaching sessions. Martha's face sprang to mind immediately. I contacted her to engage her in a professional capacity and have been very pleased and reassured at the outcome. My daughter is gaining so much from her life coaching sessions and I am satisfied that she is in safe and caring hands. I would not hesitate to recommend Martha Jesty to anyone for whatever their problem might be - big or small. In fact, you don't need to have a problem to benefit from Martha's coaching and services - just look at the variety of topics covered on the website. She is a very gifted lady. I have used her telephone coaching services and I found it invaluable. Her objectivity, logic and wisdom are perfect ingredients for effective life coaching training sessions.”

She has insight to get to the heart of situations, to unravel them and can present sound, practical solutions. I have no reservations in recommending Martha for her counselling and coaching services."

"Our cross cultural coaching session gave me the confident that I needed and it changed the patterns of my thinking. During my cultural coaching sessions with Martha Jesty, the trauma that I experienced in the past, made more sense to me and in the way it had hit me. It made me realized that I should be more assertive and make more efforts to bring forth & express more my thinking. Martha, you said that I should “change my hat”, this is my cultural hat, and that teaching really convinced me. After that session, I started to express myself more than before."
“Martha gave me lots of practical ideas, support and encouragement during our coaching time.”
“I have known Martha Jesty for more than 4 years. During this time I have found Martha to be sensitive, warm and caring person. She is highly skilled and has recently became a volunteer for Jigsaw4U, working with children and young people who have experienced loss and trauma. I am very happy to recommend Martha for work involving coaching, listening and enabling women.”
"It's comforting to know that there are people like you Martha, speaking on behalf of all of these women suffering from PTSD. I think, like me, there are probably so many women out there that are being told that it is just Postnatal depression, but in reality it is PTSD. Thank you again!"
"I feel I can now face my experience knowing there are people out there like yourself who have been through similar experiences and who understand what I'm going through. Thank you for your time Martha."
"I’ve seen counsellors for years but nothing really clicked till I saw Martha Jesty. She works intuitively with you to create a supportive nurturing environment that enables you to look at your issues. She is not scared to look at difficult issues head on in her training sessions and help you to deal with them. Martha listens deeply (something I’m not used to with counsellors and life coaches) and offers concrete steps for changing your life. I have felt truly listened to and feel that Martha wants you to get better as much as you do. She is emotionally involved in your care and you really feel her passion to help and guide you to a better way of living. I now feel empowered and assertive and it’s through Martha’s wise nurturing that this has happened. I have received healing for restrictive thought patterns and I have learned to move on from my past trauma and move to the present with a real sense of optimism."
"Martha's warm and caring approach really made an impact with me. I felt that she understood my needs and was willing to support me to reach my goals. She listened carefully and gave advice based on her wide knowledge and expertise. I would be delighted to recommend Martha as a women's coach. My one to one sessions helped me to gain clarity regarding the business services I wanted to offer. I also appreciated Martha's help in creating the structure of a six month programme in well being. Her marketing tips were useful and very effective. I am also happy that I can continue my coaching over the phone."
"Martha Jesty is a warm and accomplished speaker who is very good at engaging with, and exciting the interest of, her audience. From tales of her early life, through to her numerous business successes Martha was able to demonstrate, with examples from her own life, how positive thinking can help you to achieve your goals. Martha spoke for approximately 45 minutes about Live Your Life to the Full and the audience interest was sustained the whole way through. Following the talk a number of members contacted us to say how much they had enjoyed listening to Martha and how she had inspired them to focus on the positives in their lives and reassess what was important to them in the coming year."

"Martha Jesty has great listening skills; during our coaching sessions she was not judgmental, which was very important to me. She gave me space & a safe environment to talk and to cry. Martha understood my issues and what I felt. It was important to me to be able to talk to a professional Christian life coach and receive prayer and healing.”
"I found Martha Jesty's life coaching sessions most useful, helped me to rebuild my life during the most difficult times: my divorce. I have learned how to keep calm and not allow other people to overwhelm me and make me lose my temper. Now I feel equipped within myself, I have more empathy with other people and understand the way they react to me. Anger is gone!"
"Very good listening and assessment of issues. Martha's knowledge and experience on the subject was outstanding. I can't think of anything Martha could have done better! I would definitely recommend Martha Jesty's life coaching services to others."

The way she listened to me and talk to me was just so caring that it made me feel very comfortable.
