"My sessions with Paula gave me a huge boost in confidence and dispelled a lot of my inner fears and self-doubt of speaking in public. I had been overly apprehensive and had a massive dislike for public speaking although it is something I have to do regularly. It even led me to turning down many fantastic opportunities. I’m now far happier in this space and feel far more equipped to handle the challenges of public speaking”
