Confidence and Self-Belief
Prior to coaching, I had reached a very low point in my life and made a decision that I was not going to give up, but realised that I needed some help to regain my confidence and bounce back.
My main sticking points were a severe procrastination habit, lack of self-confidence, a tendency to panic and feel over-whelmed under pressure, and forgetting how to have simple, childish fun!
As a result of David's coaching, I now have much more confidence in my day-to-day work life. I am able to interact with my peers and senior colleagues much more positively and with more self-assurance. Although my procrastination is not completely gone (that will take more practice!) I now recognise when I am doing it and why, and I can choose behaviours to overcome it as appropriate. I am much better able to deal with stressful situations or situations where I felt under pressure and out of control without becoming so panic-stricken.
I now have good tools for building a much more positive relationship with my daughter - she still pushes my buttons but I have a better ability to choose my response and I understand it is my choice to react positively.
David's 90-day programme gave me the opportunity to develop ideas and review progress on a regular basis rather than trying to cram it in to one session. There was the flexibility to focus on what mattered at the time of each session and to change focus if something else came up.
For me, a single coaching session coaching would be ok to get through a one-off event or as a reminder/refresher, but the 8-session programme gave me the chance to develop and pursue different aspects, as well as serve as a ‘conscience’ from one session to the next to make sure I applied what we had discussed, review the outcomes and understand what worked best for me.
As a result I am much more confident in my work and have greatly increased self-belief. My efforts were noticed both at work and at home and I have got a real boost from the positive comments I’ve had. I couldn’t have done that on my own!

I asked David to help me overcome frustration and fear associated with rejection. As I'd not heard of Reflective Repatterning before, I was unsure what the outcome may be.
David is very approachable and easy to work with because of his warm and friendly approach.
At the end of the session, I felt detached from the original problem and the emotion was vastly lowered compared to at the beginning of the session. I like that it has a more holistic approach by using meridian points as well as NLP techniques.
Thank you very much David for a great session.
