“I feel a lot more confident in myself and my abilities. My approach to career progression has changed”

I found the sessions I had with Chris extremely useful at a time in my life where there was a lot of uncertainty and upheaval. After being made redundant and wanting to make significant changes to the direction of my career, Chris really helped me to identify and focus on individual tasks that would ultimately help to land me a job in the field I wanted and also to make changes I felt I needed in my personal life.

Over the sessions, we worked on identifying my long term goals and then individual goals along the way that would lead me to a place of personal stability.

As a result of the sessions with Chris, I feel a lot more confident in myself and my abilities. My approach to career progression has changed where I now identify the goal first and then think about what steps I need to make to get there. I’ve already made steps up the “ladder” in my new role because of this.

Chris was an absolute pleasure to work with and has definitely made me see the value in coaching sessions. I will be looking into more sessions in the future.

“If you feel at a crossroads, I absolutely urge you to give Chris’ coaching a go”

I cannot recommend Chris enough! Over the past 6 weeks I have been seeing Chris for life coaching, after a lot of challenges and change in my life. He was so insightful and dynamic in his approach, and tailored things specifically for me.

I cannot begin to describe what a humongous change this has created, both in the way I think and the actions I do. In our first session I had to score how content I was with different areas of life, some only scoring 2/10… But now after just 6 short weeks, we went through rescoring, but with now some achieving 9.5/10s!

Whether it’s life coaching or career coaching you’re after, if you feel at a crossroads, I absolutely urge you to give Chris’ coaching a go.

“Everyone who has hit a career wall should book a course of sessions with Chris”

We don’t all follow the career path we think we will, and it’s easy to fall in the trap of ‘plodding on’ in your work life. And that’s where I was before I worked with Chris.

Chris and I worked together over six weeks, in that time I was looking to establish where I was and where I wanted to be. It was great to actually talk to someone as an adult and discuss my direction, concerns and capabilities.

Chris is a great guy, very professional and makes you feel really comfortable, yet challenges you to dig deeper and own your decisions. He offers solid guidance and support to help you achieve a better understanding of what you want to do next. It gave me more insight into what was right for me.

I think everyone who has hit a career wall, whether they know if they want to get over it should book a course of sessions with Chris. He really does help with clarity for your chosen direction.

“I was going nowhere with my career. Working with Chris has been an extremely positive, empowering and motivating experience”

I was in a position whereby I was going nowhere with my career, my workload meant I was working 60-80 hours per week and this was getting me down. I knew I required some advice on change and the possibility of changing employers, and I wanted to know (after so long), how best to go about it. I also wanted to speak with a professional who didn’t know me, someone who could review my work/life balance. I approached Chris to find out more and within ten minutes of speaking to him I knew that he was the coach for me! His words were very comforting and his genuine interest in me was like nothing I’ve experienced before.

Chris looked into my working patterns in detail, reviewed some of the strengths and weaknesses I had in the workplace and how to overcome the weaker areas as well as help strengthen my stronger attributes. I felt from the coaching that I was able to find out more about myself and all the skills I’ve got in the workplace along with remembering all the important things I have in life outside of work. All of the sessions were very positive, and I felt like I could talk to Chris about anything. He also sometimes sets homework (nothing too demanding), so even when you are not having the sessions there is something to focus on for the next session.

I would highly recommend Chris as a life coach for anyone in any circumstance. He made me feel very relaxed, positive about myself, he enabled me to open up and also have a normal conversation about things and is an all-round professional with all subject matters. As a keen long-distance runner, I am hoping to continue to use Chris’s expertise to provide support and coaching in my running, in areas like health, strength and mental wellbeing.

Having had the opportunity to work with Chris has been an extremely positive, empowering and motivating experience. Thanks Chris!

“I was searching for something but didn’t know quite what. The findings were remarkable”

I was searching for something but didn’t know quite what, I was wanting something but wasn’t quite sure what this could be.

I came across Chris’s professional website and found the navigation across it effortless with some interesting and succinct nuggets of information that were appealing and insightful.

I arranged 6 sessions with Chris, we explored both personal and professional domains of the self. The findings were remarkable all teased out and expertly executed by Chris.

Like driving I’d picked up a number of bad habits over the years, fortunately Chris was able to apply a degree of NLP giving me the opportunity to both look at (and change) my thought processing and behavior, allowing me to be more positive in my decision making, and acted out self-behavior.

I feel I have a few extra strings to my bow for coping with work and life challenges, which have brought about a degree of positivity – remarkable! I cannot recommend Chris anymore highly.

“I didn’t expect the total transformation that occurred in me after just six sessions”

I cannot rate Chris highly enough for the help that he has given me in many areas of my life. I went to see Chris for help with my anxiety problems.

I was expecting to gain some useful techniques to help me during stressful situations. What I didn’t expect was the total transformation that occurred in me after just six sessions.

Chris was able to identify my trigger points, and work on these using NLP. Chris made sure that I was comfortable at every stage, and even created a safe trigger point that I could use should I become overwhelmed. We worked through a variety of NLP exercises, each one being different, and dare I say fun at times too.

What amazed me the most was that after the sessions the positive results continued to develop in my mind. Chris was always available for me should I have questions, need support or even just to chat to about my progress and well being out of session time. I have tried many therapies and have seen numerous practitioners in the past, but I can honestly say that none have come close to the experience and results that I obtained with Chris.

His professionalism along with ability to made you feel at ease is very commendable. There is no doubt that he genuinely cares, which goes a long way to help when initially feeling vulnerable. We even got to move on to other issues like my fear of heights, as the progress around my anxiety was so quick.

I would happily recommend Chris to anyone.
