“My first coaching session with Emmaus Leadership found me at my lowest ebb personally and professionally for many years which was not what I had planned when I signed up. The skill of the Emmaus Companion in responding to my needs, encouraging personal and professional reflection as well as challenge meant that I felt reinvigorated and focused by the end of just 2 sessions.”

Valerie Viret,
Head teacher of Crockham Hill C.E. Primary School


“My time with the Emmaus Companion was very precious. She skilfully encouraged me to challenge my own ideas and organise my thoughts and, as a result, has helped me move towards a significant leadership change. Money well spent!”

Mrs Alison Saunders,
Head teacher of St. Lawrence C.E. Primary School


“Working with Emmaus Leadership has helped me to clarify my thinking, explore ideas and evaluate the different options available. The Companion I worked with was amazing, providing the perfect balance of support and challenge and enabling me to progress in a way that I wouldn't have been able to alone. Easily the best professional support I have had as a head teacher.”

Kathy Taylor,
Head teacher of Sundridge and Brasted C.E. Primary School


Having been in the Christian ministry for four decades, I have learnt the value of mentors and coaches. This has been particularly true of my work with Emmaus Leadership. There is a clear coherence about the approach of the team and the professional standards which are the hallmark of their engagement. Having been both a consultant and mentor in business and ministry, I feel well placed to assess as outstanding, the significant and positive contribution that Emmaus Leadership have made to my current role in helping to lead significant change in two churches.

“I have been working with an Emmaus Companion as part of the Transforming Wigan movement, and in our 1-to-1 sessions I have found their care, insight, understanding and professionalism to be absolutely fantastic.  If you are a leader involved in change, then for heaven’s sake use these people!”
