Prior to the coaching, I was at a very low ebb having been quite badly bullied and having a low resilience level. I also had significant relationship issues with my manager. What I liked was your approach to listening, playing back, challenging my perceptions (which were not actually reality) and providing tools and options for me to consider using as I move forward.

Your coaching style allowed for a relaxed environment and created the opportunity for me to lead on finding the solutions to dealing with my obstacles. It brought me back to focusing on my core values and became the catalyst for reframing of my thoughts and feelings in such a way that I have become a lot more positive about my direction. I have a strong sense of discipline, and therefore trust my assurance to self that I will maintain the progress achieved over the course of the coaching sessions.

Prior to coaching I was very anxious about my work life and being unable to cope with the prospect of not achieving success in my role. Working with you I got the opportunity to take control, release unhelpful thoughts, and create meaningful awareness of times of anxiety and how to recognise and address the situation. I was impressed by the methodology you used – asking probing questions to illicit responses, thoughts and new ways of seeing things. My confidence has been restored!
