"My choice of Walking with Leaders was as a direct result of seeing Sheridan in action and I'm very grateful for his help in developing my professional skills."

‘’You always end a session feeling that you are more capable and able than you thought you were – but with a real sense of where you could do better. Sheridan has an exceptional sense of humour which is incredibly useful when guiding you through issues that you may be resistant or sensitive to.’’
