Feedback from clients on working with Eve Turner Associates:

“Having never thought of coaching, or indeed having a coach, I was not sure what to expect!  I have been challenged, mentored, supported, frustrated and made huge leaps all at the same time – what a peculiarly effective relationship!  It has been transformational and I thank you.”

Debbie Holley, newly promoted Professor and Deputy Head of the Centre of Excellence for Learning, Bournemouth University.

“It has been great to have Eve as my group supervisor for the past year.  I work as an internal coach at the University of Southampton and Eve has been helpful in providing a space to reflect on the unique challenges associated with the role.  She expertly provides a unique balance of active listening with the skilful sharing of her wealth of ideas and experience.  I hugely value her support and particularly appreciate her integrity, warmth and passion to inspire others.”

Jan Davis, Head of Centre for Innovation and Leadership (interim), Faculty of Health Sciences

“We have been working with Eve since September 2015 and found the supervision sessions that she runs invaluable.  Eve’s expertise combined with her natural, personable style has enabled the group to feel comfortable and truly reflect on their experiences with the right level of support and challenge.  As a result of supervision we are becoming a group of HR professionals who are more self-aware and more effective coaches.”

Leah Goodwin, Organization Development Manager, L&Q Housing

“Eve has done a fantastic job of setting up and providing supervision to the internal coaching community at the University of Southampton.  Her ever-calm approach gently challenges us to think differently and appropriately, using a wide range of techniques form her coaching toolkit.  Eve brings an air of grace to all our supervision meetings in an environment which can sometimes be hectic and relentless, giving everyone the opportunity to talk about anything which may be in our heads.  Her experience and wisdom is greatly appreciated and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone.”

Andy Cast, Head of Business Partnering, University of Southampton

“I would strongly recommend Eve as a supervisor. Since we’ve worked together I’ve really noticed an increase in my self-awareness, confidence and skills. I’m noticing a change in results with my clients. She has a calm but forensic style of questioning that really helps you take ownership of the way you deliver coaching. I have found she models a great awareness in coaching and I’ve found myself really rising to the challenge. Highly recommended.”

“Eve is an inspiring and motivating supervisor. Every challenging situation I bring to the table is unraveled, thoroughly looked at from professional and personal perspectives, and providing me with new insights”.

Personal performance coach, Simone van der Graaf

“Eve has been my coaching supervisor since 2014 and I have found my supervision sessions with her incredibly useful, both in terms of supporting my development and enhancing my coaching practice.  I really value how she always seeks feedback to ensure that I am getting the most I can from the sessions and I truly appreciate the fantastic job she does at effectively balancing support and encouragement with honest, in-the-moment feedback and challenge.  If you are looking for a coaching supervisor, I would highly recommend her.”

Tina McCarthy, Business Psychologist & Coach

James Marshall, Owner, Talking Ape Learning and Development Consultancy

“Eve’s supervision is valuable to me in many ways.  I really enjoy how she challenges me to develop my awareness from different perspectives.  I therefore generate more pathways to being a better coach.  What I wasn’t expecting was also how supportive she’s been to me developing myself and my practice and has shown great flexibility in being able to tackle team coaching issues as well as 1:1 situations.”

Gregor Findlay, Team and Executive Coach

“I have been working as a professional coach for over 20 years. Eve provides me with supervision of the highest quality: a supportive and challenging space in which I am able to really stretch my thinking and explore my approach.”

Jennifer Maddox BA(hons) MSc(Trng&HRM) Dip(Coaching) MAC
Accredited Master Executive Coach

“I’ve been part of Eve’s supervision group since Autumn 2014 and it’s been a great Learning and Development experience for me. In our sessions I’ve been supported; encouraged to reflect; had my thinking challenged in a kind and constructive manner – and had a lot of fun as well. Eve works hard to make the sessions fresh and different and her knowledge of the coaching industry provides loads of practical input as well.”

Mike Dutton, OD consultant, Trainer and Executive Coach

“I have been attending Eve’s group supervision for a number of years. We have had very diverse groups but always the work we do together is inspiring and challenging but also fun. Eve has a very natural style of encouraging everyone to participate and her knowledge and experience in using various techniques to get the best solution is invaluable. If you have not tried group supervision before, then there is no better place to start your experimental journey than with Eve’s group.”

Carole Davidson, Business Coach & Mentor, Executive Coach and Coach Supervisor

“I find the group supervision sessions super-valuable learning opportunities to reflect on the hows and whys of working with a wide range of different clients – hugely valuable insights for me & great benefits to my clients too. In the midst of busy life I always have an excited sense of anticipation when a group supervision session is on the horizon on a Saturday morning & I drive away afterwards refreshed and with a sense of gratitude for the diversity in sharing case studies & wonderful facilitation.”

Sue Gravells, Executive and Team coach

“I have been attending Eve’s supervision group for two years and have found her support invaluable. Her enthusiasm and depth of knowledge are inspiring, and the sessions are great fun with lots of laughter, while at the same time encouraging serious reflection on my coaching practice.  As a result of Eve’s supervision, my self-awareness and confidence as a coach have increased, enabling me successfully to apply for coaching accreditation.”

Tim Schuler, Personal and Management Coach

“Eve’s supervision group has been a great learning experience for me, both in terms of gleaning from Eve’s vast knowledge, and applying the group process to my own coaching scenarios.  Talking through and experientially working on our individual coaching situations means we receive immediate development in the moment, and also learn from each other as we each go through different scenarios.  I find the group a safe, professional and stretching development experience.”

Anna Springett, Executive and Career Coach

“I have been attending a group supervision session with Eve for the last 6 months. Eve is great to work with and the group bonded instantly, mainly, I’m sure due to Eve’s great rapport skills. She is thoughtful, authentic and knowledgeable and every session has been interesting, useful and fun. I have no hesitation in recommending Eve to anyone looking for supervision.”

Lisa Boyd, Coach, Facilitator and Trainer.

“The supervision has been inspirational and fun and the group is highly supportive with an absolute wealth of experience.  I always leave having learned loads and having loads to reflect on.”

Sarah Smith, Coach and trainer.

“Eve is a fantastic coach supervisor, thoughtful, caring and kind and very very skilled.”

Andry Anastasiou

“Eve is a brilliant supervisor, skillfully guiding the coach through the process of supervision, clarifying and questioning to bring him/her to a place of deeper understanding. She gave me a new perspective on the value 3 way meetings and what to look for in terms of outcome and evaluation of the process. It was so helpful and just what I needed.”

Gillian Curtis

“I attended a supervision group that Eve facilitated, and I would highly recommend her as a coach supervisor. She balanced support and challenge, and offered insights that made a real difference to the quality of my coaching.”

Clare Norman PCC

“Eve has a remarkable ability to combine the specific with the holistic in her approach to coaching.  While never forgetting the particular focus of a coaching assignment, she always ensures she is working towards the coachee’s overall development, both in a workplace context and more generally as an individual.  So you always know, as a coachee that she is interested in helping you develop as a whole person, and as a sponsor that the coaching will have a clear focus on the agreed objectives.  And, not least, Eve brings a light touch that also makes it enjoyable and fun!”

Bart Huby FIA Partner, Lane Clark & Peacock LLP

“Having never thought of coaching, or indeed having a coach, I was not sure what to expect!  I have been challenged, mentored, supported, frustrated and made huge leaps all at the same time – what a peculiarly effective relationship!  It has been transformational and I thank you.”

Debbie Holley, newly promoted Professor and Deputy Head of the Centre of Excellence for Learning, Bournemouth University.

“I found that Eve was able to establish very quickly what the issues were and then to help me arrive at a pragmatic and workable solution.  Through my  coaching sessions my confidence in my own abilities very quickly grew.  A really good and useful experience.”

Consultant, Lane Clark & Peacock LLP

“You have personally made a huge difference to my career and I genuinely know that I would never have been able to achieve what I have had I never met you!  I reflect often on what I have learned from you (about myself!).”

Steve Fairman, Managing Director, NHS Improving Quality

“I always look forward to our conversations with Eve.  She is able to strike a unique balance of careful listening with sharing her wealth of experience and ideas.  She quickly pinpoints the crux of a situation and does not fail to leave us with helpful insights, ideas and/or questions to ponder.  I’d highly recommend Eve to work with a team or group; she will help you look at things in a new and helpful way to help you adjust your actions and modify your behaviours to achieve your desired outcomes.”

Ruth Pullen, Assistant Director, Wessex institute, University of Southampton

“Eve has supported us with a first class coaching service for 7 years, working with staff at different levels across the firm. She is always professional and outcome focused, while caring passionately about the individual.”

Amanda Eyres, LCP Training & Development Manager

“Working with Eve has benefitted me in so many ways – I now feel that I am a better leader and fully contribute to the executive team. I have exceeded the objectives I set for myself and this has definitely benefited the organisation. Thank you!”

Jane Pike, Director of Service Delivery, NHS Dorset CCG

“Although I didn’t realise the amount of pressure and stress I was under, it was almost a life saver it completely allowed me to put things into proportion. It allowed me to approach issues that I would not have addressed.”

MC, Managing Partner, Cambridgeshire

“The real benefit for me was that I felt pushed by my coach to do the right thing rather than the easy thing. For my team I think I have been more measured and adopted a coaching style on a more regular basis. For the organisation I have been successful in delivering my objectives which also applies to patients.”

Jane, NHS, South

“After a big promotion and a lot of stress, Eve enabled me to take a step back, to create the time to add value and strategic direction for my team, rather than continue to get bogged down in the day to day. I am working less hours, seeing better results in the team, and most importantly I am really enjoying the role. I didn’t think this would have been possible before I started working with Eve”

Senior Manager, Third Sector

Read ALL Testimonials for Leadership

“A master coach and facilitator, Eve has become a significant catalyst for change at the University in a number of ways. Her knowledge and wisdom is much respected and her enthusiasm for what could be possible with the courage to try is infectious. Eve’s skills as a group coach have enabled us to bring to life a leadership development initiative that for some has truly transformed the way they interact with their colleagues. She’s also been instrumental in shaping our approach to coaching – both the quality of our coaching provision and its impact.”

Kim Newton-Woof, Organisational Development & Design Consultant at University of Southampton

“I’ve had the privilege of working with Eve as an individual and part of group development and she is amazing! She helps me explore and develop my leadership and the impact I have on others in a constructive, action driven way. Eve has also introduced me to concepts and tools which I am embedding in my practice and across the organisation. I am a more confident and effective person and leader which is evidenced through 360 degree feedback.

In the group setting, Eve has helped us agree and understand our purpose and the impact we have on each other within the group and when operating across the organisation. We made great progress when working with Eve and invited her back to work with us again, recognising we stopped our support too early and that the organisation is placing a different set of pressures on us as a senior team. The positive difference in the group is noticeable after a couple of sessions.

Working with Eve is great value for money – it is not easy to articulate a financial benefit as an outcome of the work, but if it were possible I am confident it would far outweigh the cost. Finally, I really value Eve’s drive to improve her practice which means she is going to get even better!”

Neil Tape, Chief Data Officer, National Institute for Health Research

“The results you can get if you just give everyone a chance to have a proper, honest conversation – without interruption – are absolutely remarkable.”

Janice Donaldson, HR director Southampton University

“It changes the way people are thinking and behaving and it slightly shocks them. It moves them out of their regular habits”.

Professor Peter Smith, Associate Pro Vice-Chancellor International

“Participative training rather than instructor led, with few concerns with level or hierarchy, it has led to improved decision-making through a more democratic process…and made a deep change.”

Dr Andy Gravell, former Associate Dean, Faculty of Physical Sciences & Engineering

“As a result of the Circles we are working much better as a team and it has had a profound effect on my working life.”

HR Deputy Director Sarah Hollowbread

[The impact was] “Exceptionally positive and rewarding…it is an iterative process helping people to solve their own problems in their own way.”

Professor of English, Ros King
