PJ Urquilla, CEO pjux.io Digital Agency & Production Studio, USA
I didn’t know if I could afford working with Emma or if I would be able to fully actualize the work I did with her, but my business growth was stalled, and I was looking to find meaning and purpose in my work. I wanted to find new ways to drive business activity that honored the three years I had invested in my business.
Working with Emma, I realized several things:
- That I was the sole controller of my destiny, and it was my duty to live a life of purpose.
- That life of purpose should involve something that I was passionate about.
- I should try and find a way to make it a scalable solution.
- If I am to deliver that solution through in-person consulting services, I should always have a contract and set of agreements to formalize the boundaries.
- Money is not a motivator for things you don’t want to do but is an exchange of energy.
- Riding a wheeled device such as a skateboard or a bike across the surfaces of planet earth can be a truly liberating experience, but risky so wear a helmet and be kind to your body.
- People don’t pay you what they think you’re worth, they pay you what you think you’re worth.
Our calls were always inspirational to me. I felt I could be honest, and that through our communication I could discover new ways of seeing things. Emma’s advice and insights helped me unlock business challenges and changed my perspective. Her tips came at the right time. She is very knowledgeable, she has research, and is part of an exciting movement.
Now I have a new outlook on life in many ways. I’m able to create the life I want to live and be confident about my choices moving forward. I know what I want to work on and I avoid the projects I don’t. I feel like I can be present for my family and give myself the space to learn and grow.
Emma is truly a gift. Her philosophy and way of understanding yours makes for a monumental collaboration. She is living a life that is awakened and she genuinely cares about you and believes in your success.
Graham Reynolds, Photographer & Coach, UK
I was struggling with feeling unfocused and unsure ‘who’ I was being. This crossed into all areas of my life including my relationships and my work. I wanted help, but I was nervous about staying committed and actually showing up and doing the work in between sessions.
Once I made the decision and began working with Emma, I found that I could bring ANYTHING to Emma. This has been the biggest comfort I could ask for. I’ve always felt that nothing is off limits and I could talk to her about anything without there being any judgment or opinion.
Our work together has helped me realize that having a clear YES and NO is not only powerful for me but also serves the people around me better too. Doing what I love is enough and inspirational for other people, I can serve people by being confident in myself and doing what I love.
Now, I feel confident in the work I am doing, I feel it is of service to others as well as myself. I am comfortable in the discussions and agreements that I am having with prospective clients and feel I can communicate clearly, whereas before I was trying to please people as much as possible, sometimes to the detriment of my own happiness and ultimately to the relationship, whether personal or professional.
Emma is kind, caring, gentle and completely committed to helping me develop and hit my goals. She is an unwavering tower of support. She is able to pull me out of my comfort zone so that real change happens and always keeps me true to myself. Working with Emma is transformational.
Ryan Rook, Owner & Designer, Rook and Render, USA
Emma is awesome. Having a coach is super cool. Being honest and open with her, I have someone to really reflect with; Emma cheers me on and calls me on my shit. She helps keep me connected to myself and helps keep me pointed in the right direction.
I hired Emma to help me become successful in my business so I could have real financial security and a feeling of abundance, but before I hired her I worried that I wouldn’t be able to pay for it. I was concerned that I wouldn’t learn anything substantial, or actually change any of the things I want to change.
I had to learn to be patient enough to take the time to learn how to slow down enough to really look at a situation and care for me first before working more and trying harder to bust through a “problem.” To do this I had to trust myself, and which became easier because I could trust and really take in Emma’s feedback and complements. I had to believe what she was telling me was real and heartfelt and not just her saying them because she’s my coach!
Working with Emma, I am learning to accept myself no matter how I feel or how my life looks. I am becoming more aware of judgments on myself and others and how to start forgiving them – and myself – and how that opens space for something new. I am working on not making myself wrong ever. I create it all.
I love having an advocate to check in with and point me back to myself and what is important at that moment when things feel confusing and muddled and the drama is feeling important. I also love talking about unicorns!
Since hiring Emma, I’ve been able to find a bit more power and I am starting to learn how to be ok with me always so I can be open to what is and I have allowed myself to be lead to new places and experiences I would not have done before, to learn new things.
Crystal So, Club and Fashion Event DJ and Music Producer, Hong Kong
Emma helps make the impossible possible!
I was lost. I didn’t know what I could do with my life and at the same time, there are things I’d like to achieve but I was too scared to do anything. So even though I like to keep things to myself and have felt embarrassed to talk about my issues, I hired Emma because I believed she could help me.
After 6 months been coaching by Emma, I can say that I’ve changed to a more confident person, I learned to love myself more and more, I wake up every day with energy and purpose, and I’m loving what I’m doing!
I LOVE our twice a month online meetings. Emma gives such great energy! She shares her experiences with me and because she is so open minded, I feel comfortable and loved and I can talk to her about anything. I always feel recharged after our sessions.
I’ve never felt so alive and so good like this before, Emma has truly opened my mind, my eyes and soul! I’m more confident and comfortable being ME. I’m enjoying and living the life way more than before … and did I mention I’m making double of my salary!!
I tell all my close friends and family – pretty much everyone I know – that I have this amazing life coach Emma! I’ve learnt so much from her and I want to keep learning from her! She’s someone I look up to and having Emma as part of my life is the greatest gift I’ve ever given myself. Emma is talented, humble, kind, beautiful inside and out, gives the best advice, and believes in me even when I don’t know how to believe in myself. I have gained a lot of wisdom over the months because of Emma, I absolutely adore her and have so much respect and love for her!!

An awesome and total transformation in my outlook!
Why would I need a coach? Wouldn’t it be a waste of time and money?
I already had structure and follow through in my work, but I lacked confidence and didn’t know how to grow my business so I hired Emma.
Emma is non-judgmental. She really listens and helps me discover what it is that I really want and then helps me understand and create the mindsets to achieve what I want – and also get rid of the ideas that hold me back. Emma has a wonderful perspective when it comes to tackling problems.
In 4 months, I’ve gained more confidence which led to raises and larger events in my work. We’ve also worked on setting goals higher than I had previously thought possible that led me to surpass the goals I had when I first met Emma.
I gained more confidence and built out better and more defined goals which has resulted in making more money and successfully reaching previous personal goals. It has been an awesome total transformation in my outlook!
Tara Tiedemann, Owner – Viva Adventures, Costa Rica
I hired Emma to help me better manage my business / life. I wanted to figure out how to outsource things that didn’t make me happy and create more time to focus on working on things I enjoy.
In our work together, Emma helped me discover what I really enjoyed, to make sense of the confusion and create clarity. She helped me gain a ton of insight about myself and what it is that makes me happy and how to pursue those things through work – making it fun again and that is ok to be myself and it doesn’t have to be so serious.
Emma is calm, helps ideas emerge, and promotes self discovery. She helped me realize I have my own answers and to trust myself.
Since working with Emma I am more confident and am actively building my business and working on my life goals from a new place of confidence and empowerment.
Working with Emma is amazing, she really helps you to see your own life in a clearer way and discover what it is about yourself that is unique and what you need to do, to work from this happy and fulfilled space.
Brian Callahan, Knowledge Manager, Washington, USA.
I hired Emma to help me with career satisfaction.
From the get-go and throughout our work, and even after, I found Emma an open, compassionate person, with an abundance of positive energy and an inspiring, optimistic way of looking at the world.
She asked thoughtful questions, generated unique relevant ideas I hadn’t thought about, gently nudged me in new directions with different challenges, and encouraged me with the new things I was leaning into and a few difficulties I was experiencing along the way. She gave me a lot of great material to read and additional ideas to consider in between sessions.
As a result of working with Emma, from a personal wellness standpoint I feel more at ease and at peace with myself and feel confident going forward into this next phase of my life. I have also redesigned my work life and am optimistic about continuing to shape it in who knows what way. I’ve also actively dove into new art forms like improv and filmmaking that have been on my periphery but which I haven’t explored. Any of these 3 elements would have been worth the engagement alone, but all 3 together is pretty astounding and awesome to me!
Working with Emma has been a major turning point in my life – she helped reaffirm the positive qualities within me, activate some dormant parts of my spirit, and helped me be an active creator, whether through the relationships I want to create or the life I want to design and realize for myself.
Micheal Hilton, Coach and Men’s Retreat Leader, UK
Before hiring Emma, I was feeling lost and uncertain around what to do and who I wanted to work with in my coaching business.
Through our work together I got clarity on what my work in the world is and I began to see just how much I was holding myself back, which Emma coached me on to help me start moving forward and create what I really want.
Emma is fun, encouraging, saw my potential from day one and has an unwavering belief in me.
The impact of working with Emma has been that I successfully ran my first men’s retreat and workshop and I am changing and impacting the lives of the men I work with. She has empowered me to be more me, freed me up to live my life and to create a better relationship with my wife.
I would describe my experience of working with Emma as impactful and life-changing.
Thank you Emma!
Thomas Dusseune, French Riviera Wedding & Event DJ
I initially considered getting a coach for professional matters, because I was good at what I was doing, but that wasn’t enough.
I wanted to be great!!!
Over the course of the sessions we in fact barely discussed work and business but instead we went to the deepest level of things, we dived into what actually really matters.
She shifted my way to see the world and myself in the world and put in my hands invaluable tools that will help for the rest of my life.
Although we didn’t address business matters, the benefit of Emma’s coaching on the well being of my company is massive. I’m now happier and more successful than ever in every aspect of my life.
Nigel Ipinson-Fleming, Entrepreneur, Speaker & Life Coach
I have known Emma Holmes for over 10 years and had the opportunity to work with her on a variety of projects. As an entrepreneur and creative, I have reached points in time regularly where it has been necessary to reevaluate purpose and priority.
I decided to work with Emma in a coaching capacity, and over an intense 6 month period she was successful in helping me access areas of freedom, creativity and organisation that have enabled me to take my business, my career and my life to a new level.
Thank you Emma for everything you are doing to share more good in the world.
Chris Mac, DJ Tutor and Entrepreneur
Emma was there for me, when I needed help building confidence to start my first business.
She took a deep interest, and went above and beyond to help guide me, and share her knowledge.
Our sessions were extremely valuable, and I would not have taken the first step if it wasn’t for her.
Anyone who is lucky enough to have the opportunity to work with her, you will not be disappointed.
Emma, thank you for your help and support when I needed it most. I am so grateful our paths crossed!
Danielle Krage, speaker & coach
Emma is a really perceptive and generous coach.
I love the questions she asks, and her thoughtful suggestions for resources that challenge and develop your thinking.
Working with her is stimulating and fun, and I would highly recommend her positive and enquiring approach!
Dan R – Database Developer
Emma is an amazing person and coach.
Through our conversations, she was able to show me a new way to view and analyse my current life and that of my dreams.
I am now making life decisions with more confidence.
Working with her, is exhilarating and highly motivating. Her ambition is incredible and infectious!
Chris Standen, Surfer, Production Manager
A lot of things are different for me now. The easiest way to describe it is that mentally, things have changed for me on a fundamental level. As in, my perspective on life, what I can achieve, having more belief and confidence in myself, and managing the level of pressure I put on myself. Also, being in your company has helped a lot too. It makes a difference seeing for real someone who has taken all of that on board and is living the life they want, and chasing the dream. It’s infectious and instills confidence! You have a very positive aura around you!
Andy Fry, artist & creative, UK
Since starting to work with Emma I have unlocked a huge amount of stored up creativity and given that my work is in the creative world this has been an awesome process which is ongoing. I have found my coaching sessions with Emma to be a very creative collaboration which is always the way I love to work with anyone so this has been a natural and dynamic experience but most importantly an enjoyable and fun one.
Emma has a very deep and intelligent level of listening which enables her to help you tap into limiting beliefs and suppressed creative potential which once released has enormous benefits in lifestyle and in work, which as a self employed designer and artist I have found extremely helpful.
I have made incredible progress with many areas of my life including some that were unexpected and I would recommend Emma without hesitation to anyone who is ready to be deliberate and willing to push beyond their normal comfort zone to where the seriously good stuff is waiting for them.
Thank you Emma, my creative collaborator!
Amanda Salter, Space Maker, UK
Emma has helped me to see that what I’m doing with regards to my business is actually quite amazing. Turning around the way I see it from mundane to awesome.
Asking thoughtful questions and giving me useful suggestions, that were easy to put into practice and proved to be positive, also boosting my confidence.
Emma is genuine and really wants to help, she is fun with a capital F, inspiring and still down to earth. A very positive force, who has helped me to have more faith in myself, my abilities and the services I provide.
Thank You Emma – You Rock!
Tamsin, Lettering Artist, UK
Coaching sessions with Emma have really helped to turn things around for me. I’ve become more focused, and am approaching life with a new outlook.
Emma is great at listening, and I feel like she really understands me. I thought when I started having sessions that they would be something I’d not enjoy as I knew work would be involved on my part, but I’ve found I look forward to them as I’m gaining so much.
After just a couple of coaching sessions with Emma I am noticing positive changes, and realising things about myself I didn’t previously know. I have committed to six months of sessions with Emma and I really can’t wait to see where I am in a few months time.
Thanks so much Emma.
