"Community West chose Debbie Sonin because she had a broad range of experience in the NFP and for profit sectors and because her professional qualifications were evidence that she is familiar with the human services industry. Workers in our industry are often at the coal face of supporting people in crisis and therefore stand to suffer great stress at work. Debbie provided coaching to senior staff, mediation around complex staffing issues, training across all levels of staff, and group facilitation. She has a great capacity to drill into issues and encourage those she is working with to reflect and find the learning required to improve their work practices and their interactions with both internal and external customers. Debbie’s information is always contemporary and she is a great ‘people wrangler’. Our organisation was a more harmonious and respectful workplace with Debbie’s input. I recommend Debbie Sonin to any employer who is wanting to provide their staff with opportunities to turn work place behaviours around, improve their team work, learn knew ways of interacting with others or simply gain an awareness of the latest legislation and its impact on employee rights and responsibilities."

Debbie has always demonstrated an appreciation of the industrial and personal impacts of her work, and has achieved results beyond what might have been expected given the complexity of the matter. She is professional and ethical in her approach.

I can highly recommend the work of D.K. Sonin and Associates."
