“For anyone who has ever thought about having a coaching session try a mini coaching session with Judy NOW! 10 minutes into the conversation and Judy had put me in touch with the things which had seemed like thoughts just out of my grasp. Whispy thoughts that have turned into simple, practical tasks that I just need to get on with. Judy, thank you so much, one simple session has cleared my head and allowed me to see the light. I anticipate that Judy is going to be very busy – what a truly wonderful opportunity for us all.” Instant coaching client Lesley Lyle
“I found myself paralysed by indecision when trying to come up with a name for my social enterprise and youth website. Judy’s X-Ray Listening really helped me to understand what I was trying to achieve and how the name is connected to that. I stopped feeling so stressed: now I’ve got my names and I’m over the moon.” Lucy Ferguson, entrepreneur, London
“You will enjoy working with Judy as she is enthusiastic, enquiring and skilled at asking you the right questions. She is well qualified in this field and draws on her extensive experience as a journalist and editor. X-Ray listening is a powerful communications tool that will make a huge difference to how you manage yourself and others in business. Looking back at the major systems and business projects I have been involved in, I wish I had the advantage of X-Ray listening and communication. They would have saved us all a lot of time, money, ‘aggro’ and personality issues.” Maurice O’Shea, Managing Director/Finance Director of Technology, Telecoms, Media and Start-up businesses
“More than once have I had the pleasure of working with Judy and each time I have been hugely impressed by her clarity, expertise and professionalism. She is someone who helps people connect with their own insight and abilities, handing them the confidence and practical tools to boost their self-esteem and performance along the way. I have no hesitation in recommending her. If you get the opportunity, hire her.” Margaret Meyer , Owner, Manifest Consulting
“How to feel you really know six people you have never met? Join Judy Rees for one of her X-Ray Listening teleseminars. I recently took part in a series of six one-and-a-half-hour teleseminars with Judy to learn the skill of X-Ray Listening. By the end of the first call I felt like I had six new friends, yet we had never met. Judy’s enthusiasm, encouragement and constructive feedback have made this a thoroughly enjoyable learning experience.
“From the very start Judy uses her expertise in Clean Language to demonstrate, clarify and ensure everyone is clear on the goals for the session. Within twenty minutes of starting the course, we were all practising our first skill, to discover more about each other and build rapport. Each session was well structured, and very participative. Judy uses her own highly developed skills in X-Ray Listening to guide us and facilitate each member of the group in exploring a chosen subject using the X-Ray Listening skills.
“Overall it has been a fun, enjoyable and very valuable experience; I have learnt a set of skills that can be applied in every interaction both at work and home.” Corrine Thomas, Business Analysis Team Manager, Skandia
“I think we all experienced something new and were excited by this. This course was different from the usual business training, where one-size-fits-all techniques are often taught. It felt more like a coaching session.
“The techniques were totally new to most of us, but as you present them in a structured way and with a lot of practical relevance, we all got a sense of how they can be used to get more out of meetings and discussions – requirements gathering workshops being just one of them. Thank you so much!
“In an analysis context these simple questions are particularly useful. For example, I have used them to clarify terminology when I joined a project which was in a new area for me. The questions seemed to have a positive effect – people were happy to explain what they meant. The result was that I learned about the new area quickly and was able to add value quickly.” Anja Eichen, Systems Analyst
“More than once have I had the pleasure of working with Judy and each time I have been hugely impressed by her clarity, expertise and professionalism. As a trainer, facilitator, writer and consultant she is wonderfully clear, skilled and perceptive. She is someone who helps people connect with their own insight and abilities, handing them the confidence and practical tools to boost their self-esteem and performance along the way. She combines real drive with a breadth of experience; a gift for lateral thinking with superb analytical skills. She has some of the best listening skills in the business. Above all, Judy delivers. There can be few projects that wouldn’t benefit from Judy’s talents. I have no hesitation in recommending her. If you get the opportunity, hire her.” Margaret Meyer, Owner, Manifest Consulting
“If you’re at all curious about the benefits of NLP, Clean Language and their benefits for yourself or your business I’d highly recommend the courses run by Judy. They are insightful, informative and enabling.” Rasheed Ogunlaru, Life coach, Speaker, Business coach
“I just wanted to express my pleasure with your book “Six Practical Ways to use Clean Language at Work.” I wasn’t sure how Clean Language would apply to my working environment, but it seems as though my “concern” has been answered with the explanations in your book. I understand that your book was only a small part of a much larger picture, but the information provided me with the “push” I needed to search for more guidance through training. Thank you.” Rick Burke, Strategic Projects Scheduler Diablo Canyon Power Plant, CA
“I taught “X-Ray Listening” in an influencing programme I ran recently. Participants reported that they found the exercise easy and relaxing (without the anxiety that can come from wanting to do a complex sequence right). The energy in the room was amazing… and I could sense that each person felt respected and “heard”. We concluded that this was a special gift we could offer and is also a powerful way of influencing others to be open and clear in a safe space. A rarity in the fast-paced world we live in!” Anne Munro-Kua, Trainer, Malaysia www.annemunro-kua.com
