"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"

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!

David recently helped me with a dilemma I faced, which I just needed to talk through and work out which direction to proceed in.
David took the time to understand my personal circumstance, dilemma and the position I was in and was very pragmatic, straight-forward and honest in his approach, which helped me identify the right solution for me.
I can't thank him enough for his time, patience and advice.

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.
