"I had recently been through a divorce and have had a long term disability. Though I feel I dealt with these well in a personal way, it wasn't until I visited David that I really understood how they were both still affecting the way I dealt with relationships in my life. We explored some of my
beliefs deep-rooted in a past situation and turned these around to come out with a more beneficial outcome for me.
As a result of the coaching sessions, I feel clear about what I want from life. More importantly I make my decisions without the bitterness of the past. My disability is no longer an issue to me and having the time to reflect and adjust my thinking within these sessions has been very useful to me"

I just wanted to touch base and thank you again. I found your session most useful. As a result of your coaching I have now managed to secure a role and have been working as a project manager since end of March.

Confidence – Trophy Cabinet!
"David has taken me on quite a journey, from an initial place of uncertainty, a little apprehension and nervousness. Admittedly at my first session I felt uncertain and skeptical because I knew I was asking a lot.
However what impressed me with David was how he made me feel at ease, asking me open questions which took me down a path where I was able to express myself and explain the problems I was having.
David worked with me on techniques to help me build my confidence, and I now use the techniques eg. "hoops", "trophy cabinet" and anchoring, when I need an instant confidence boost. I am delighted how well these have all worked for me.
Thank you very much David, for all that you have done so far with me. I feel I am growing and developing as a result of your coaching."

Improved Focus and Prioritisation
I came to David to coach me on improving the focus of my life and to be able to spend my time more productively.
I'd been referred by another of David's clients so had evidence of his proven results.
Prior to working with David, I found that I didn’t prioritise things effectively and too often spent time on issues that were easy to solve but relatively unimportant.
David was able to help me draw out my weaknesses and concentrate on resolving them. He was also very flexible with regards to sessions.
I would recommend David. He improved my approach to the way I tackle issues and helped me consider other people’s point of view, both professionally and personally.

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!
