Working alongside Shona these last few years has given me the opportunity to observe her support people on different Dance Floors. Each time she coaches with so much care, sensitivity and depth. Each one really seemed like it was the only one- so full of care for the individual. I saw profound impacts on many different participants. Hearing from them afterwards that it had changed their lives, they hadn't expected such a deep shift in such a short amount of time.
