Testimonials

“Neil has been a fantastic influence and a major help to me”

“Neil has great skills as a life coach, a fantastic listener, very empathetic, gives you the time to speak, express yourself, and always seems to understand what you’re trying to say, even if you don’t know. All of this while staying very professional and astute. We have covered many subjects and Neil has used many approaches and methods. Neil has been a fantastic influence and a major help to me, I would strongly recommend his services.”

“Neil has helped me to think of my problems differently and come up with solutions” 

“Neil is very respectful, and I like that he asks how much you would like to be challenged at the start of each session. He is always encouraging and positive and this really helps me to take stock of what I have achieved, even if it doesn’t always feel like I have achieved very much. I like that Neil gives space for a large range of things to be talked out- since many of these things are often connected it is really helpful to be able to talk about things that may not always seem relevant. Whilst adopting a new way of thinking is tough, Neil has helped me to think of my problems differently and come up with solutions that I had never thought about before.”

“I wouldn’t have known where to start… without guidance and support from Neil”

“A huge benefit for me was just feeling like I had a safe space where I was heard, respected and supported, and honouring this commitment each month allowed me to think about the areas of my life much more actively and expansively, and as a result reach some really positive conclusions. It was beneficial being able to work through some of my issues and areas of uncertainty without any fear of judgement or rejection. Overall, coaching allowed me to really configure my own values, tune into my purpose and identify the blocks in my way and why. I wouldn’t have known where to start going about this without guidance and support from Neil.”

“Genuine empathy and passion in supporting his coachees”

“Genuine empathy and passion in supporting his coachees. Resourceful set of tools to both empower the coachee and support coaching sessions. Creativity in picking up what and when sets of tools could be handy. Integrity, openness. Enthusiastic, supportive.”

“I felt more confident on whether I was on the right path or otherwise” 

“I found the coaching sessions very useful to draw out of my thinking of various topics. I mainly used the coaching sessions to work out the best way to do something or brainstorm ideas and benefited from the challenge that coaching (Neil) provided.

Coaching helped me to think more clearly about topics after the sessions and I felt more confident on whether I was on the right path or otherwise.”

“Neil…really helped me clarify and progress my journey” 

“I…appreciate the way the conversations are not forced in anyway but organic and sometimes guided with a reflection or question(s) with the topic being ultimately my choice. Neil often has very intuitive insights, reflections and observations during our conversations that really helped clarify and progress my journey with one or more of the goals or even on tangential topics.

Mindful Coaching

In my work I use mindful thinking to help enable clients to reach their full potential or be the best they can be on any given day.

5 Stages of Coaching

First: Asking ‘What goals do I want to address?’

The coach helps you look at your life and supports you in working out evidence for the goals you want to achieve. 

Second: Focussing on what matters and connecting to your purpose.

In each session you need to have an ideal outcome in mind.

Third: Collecting tools, experimenting with them as ‘take home’ and seeing what sticks.

Sometimes the coach will offer a tool. If it appeals, you can trial it as ‘take home.’ At the start of the next session there will be an opportunity to give feedback about its level of effectiveness. With individuals this might include discovering core values, in business it might be coaching to a 360 report.

Fourth: Seeing what works, changing what doesn’t, and gathering success.

As you work on different issues and try out new tools, you will build self-awareness and see an increased capacity for success. With the help of the coach, you will have an opportunity to learn new ways of reframing the world.

Fifth: Reviewing, checking achievement, asking ‘what’s next?’ 

In the review session you will measure the level of goal achievement  and rate your satisfaction. Then you can formulate what happens next and the sky, as the cliché goes, is the limit! The joy of coaching is that it is a reflective, positive, flexible, and creative process and that is why satisfied clients love it.

Coaching supports you identify your life and/or professional goals. Once identified, coaching can help you achieve greater self-awareness, improved self-management skills and increased self-efficacy. It is a collaborative, conversation-based process, which builds on your existing strengths. It is often focused on supporting you make change.

Sessions may be quite structured and follow a specific model (I and to use tGROW), or integrate more than one model, along with elements of therapeutic approaches such as CBT and Positive Psychology.
