Company Director

Lucy has been an exceptional coach and mentor over the last 12 month.  Lucy’s experience, drive and engaging personality has helped shape her to become the “go to” professional where personal, career development and business transformation is concerned.  Lucy really took the time to understand who I was, what was important to me and what my aspirations and goals were.  She was quick to connect with me and helped me to develop my own leadership skills which have allowed me to become more effective, increase personal performance and develop a clearer insight to my career development.  



Have you thought about receiving coaching? Maybe you'd love to find your purpose and values but don't know where to start? Let me make it easy for you - speak to 3WH. I promise that the support and guidance you will get from them will be outstanding. In the blink of an eye, your world will open up to a plethora of possibilities and you will leave her care with a smile on your face and a fiery determination in your heart. Don't delay your growth any longer. Stop procrastinating about the future you wish you could have. 


Project Director

Lucy has been my coach now for a little over 6 months, and in that short time she has helped me through various stages of setting up a new business and the challenges that come with it.  I can’t recommend 3WH highly enough, truly inspiring, supportive, intuitive, giving me the tools to handle any situation and the confidence to trust my instincts.  Quite literally every aspect of my life has improved since working with 3WH.

Power of coaching sometimes is instantly impacting, however brilliant coaching only continues to grow inside. Lucy spending time with me was valuable and focused me on how to use my energy, now having spent sometime reflecting over our conversations. The value of Lucy’s experience has been outstanding, Lucy thank your, your words are rooted in my values


Commercial Director

The level of exploration achieved on a personal and professional level clearly demonstrated to me the passion that Lucy had for developing, mentoring & coaching people, and the carefully crafted structure in which we did this showed me a range of opportunities for the business (one of which I have since been able to take) and also identified for the business those people who were prepared to achieve under the title of PRIDE – Personal Responsibility In Developing Excellence.
