Services Anchor


“I engaged Dr. Helen Holton last year to help me improve my coaching skills.  As an ICF credentialed coach, was required to receive mentor coaching as part of keeping my credentials up to date. She had come highly recommended by my original coaching trainer.  His comments to me were that she was truly excellent. He was right. My work with Dr. Helen has not only made me a more effective coach, but much more important to me, a better, more effective human being.


I work with a wide variety of people in my businesses, in a variety of capacities.  So, I don’t always attempt to coach them myself and I have begun referring people to Dr. Helen and will continue to do so.”
