Tara has really helped me to see my pre-existing skills and achievements are attractive to employers. She has inspired me to actually apply for new jobs, and not just look at them. Tara has helped me to feel less disheartened by the pandemic and to stop thinking that I won’t get another job because of the pandemic. Tara has helped me to see that my anxiety won’t get in the way of me working so long as I’m working for a a decent company doing something I enjoy.


I couldn’t have asked for better support. I always looked forward to speaking with Max. He made me feel heard, always understood my point of view and gave incredible advice that I was able to put in place. This came at such a low and anxious time in my life and I just couldn’t see a way forward. Following the support I received, I’m now back at work full time and making amazing progress. I couldn’t have imagined being in this position 3 months ago. I’m so grateful to Max for getting me here!


The balance of listening with practical advice and empathy was invaluable. This has been one of the toughest experiences of my life and I am truly grateful for the support.
