"Kiechelle was absolutely fantastic for so many reasons! Kiechelle's knowledge and experience was really clear throughout the two day course. What made the course even better was Kiechelle's amazing skill to tailor and apply her skills and experience to our group. Kiechelle kept us on course without making us feel constricted or pressurised whilst still encouraging and cultivating important conversations and engagement amongst our group that added immense value to both ourselves as individuals and our group as a whole. This combined with Kiechelle's ability to show incredible vulnerability and authenticity helped to make the training even more special. Thank you very much Kiechelle!"
