Paul is a great listener and brilliant at asking the right questions at the right time. This has enabled me to move forward and successfully set up my own business in only 3 months. You have changed my life! I can't thank you enough!

'In only a month and a half, I was able to improve my mind-set and my measurable trading results well beyond my expectations!' 

I never tried coaching before, but while on my journey to become a successful trader I realised that my mind-set was holding me back and leading to mixed results. It was not because of the strategy! I highly value my time: in my opinion, it is one of the most important resources

we have. For this reason, I decided to hire a coach: to speed-up as much as possible my inner transformation and finally get the right mind-set needed to be a successful trader. I had six sessions with Paul and it was truly worth it. In only a month and a half, I was able to improve my mind-set (and my measurable trading results) well beyond my expectations. Paul's questions were very insightful and sometimes challenging at the right time, allowing me to realise the right steps I needed to take all the way through.If you have a challenge and you are motivated to solve it in the shortest possible time, Paul can help you. It was a pleasure to work with him, warmly recommended!

'My coaching sessions with Paul have been a transformative experience, as my self-employment goal is becoming a reality!'

My coaching sessions with Paul have been AMAZING! Paul has an upbeat manner and is very positive. Every session, I was encouraged to choose what I wanted to focus on and it was great to have a safe space to explore my goals and dreams! It was exciting to take the time to think about what I really want to do and come up with concrete steps to make it happen. It was incredibly exciting to work with Paul on my self-employment goals and I found after every session, I was surprised I took action which helped me step outside my comfort zone, which was very empowering! This is a big deal for me, as I often 'play it safe!' The sessions in particular helped me to challenge my limiting beliefs and fears that I had around being visible in my business. My coaching sessions with Paul have been a transformative experience, as my self-employment goal is becoming a reality!

‘I now feel equipped to reach my full potential…if only I did this sooner!’

Before working with Paul I felt I had a lack of direction and focus for improving myself both professionally and personally, which made me feel I wasn’t meeting my full potential. 

I was already aware that Paul was a transformational coach and one day decided to book six coaching sessions to discover if Paul’s coaching could help me focus and ultimately help me realise my full potential. I had no experience with life coaching and did not know what to expect.

Paul made me feel very comfortable during the sessions and clearly explained how they would work and that everything would be confidential.

Consequently, I felt relaxed and was able to openly speak and delve deep into my feelings and thoughts – some of which I never would have uncovered without Paul.

This enabled me to discover how to address areas I needed help with such as how to deal with stress, improve confidence and how to improve my drive to achieve great things. What was particularly useful was having clear outcomes at the end of each session. For instance, creating a plan for exercise to help reduce stress levels.

At the end of each session I felt like a huge weight had been lifted from my shoulders as I had a strategy to address issues that I had previously ignored. I now feel equipped to reach my full potential both personally and professionally.

For example, one of the sessions motivated me to put myself forward to lead an initiative at work. This has resulted in me being recognised by senior leadership in a positive way.

Thanks to Paul I am now an avid supporter of his coaching method and I am confident that the coaching received will benefit me for the rest of my lifetime – if only I did this sooner!

'It has given me the confidence to think forward and take risks to achieve the life that I have always wanted.'

I have thoroughly enjoyed receiving coaching from Paul. It has allowed me to explore so many different aspects of my life, including my career, family and goals. I have been challenged to think about the causes of my behaviour and have been led through a range of techniques to help me overcome the barriers which hinder me from maximising potential. Paul's professional approach has meant that I am able to speak freely without fear of judgement. Coaching has truly transformed my life and perspective, what seemed impossible now feels attainable. Furthermore, it has given me the confidence to think forward and take risks to achieve the life that I have always wanted.

'It has made a huge difference to her, emotionally as well as physically.’

'Thank you so much for your guidance, the things you have taught our daughter cannot be learned from a book and once you know them, you make them your own and carry them with you in everything you do.  It has made a huge difference to her, emotionally as well as physically.’ Testimonial from a parent, UK

'I feel it has helped me so much, not only with helping to build my self-confidence and self-esteem, but helping me get a clear plan of how I want my future to pan out.'

My experience while getting coaching from Paul was very good, I feel it has helped me so much, not only with helping to build my self-confidence and self-esteem, but helping me get a clear plan of how I want my future to pan out. I found that when talking to Paul he was an extremely kind, understanding and empathetic coach and will listen to what you have to say and help build different plans and ideas from that you have told him. He came up with different tasks and challenges to help overcome certain obstacles that I was facing and helped me see a different outlook on how I want my future to look. I would strongly recommend him to anyone who may need some direction and good sound advice from a skilful listener.

'Paul is a listening, reflective rock. Calm and a good listener, empathetic, perceptive and strong to lean against.'

I was always impressed by how measured, confident and quietly knowledgeable he was. He has had many years of coaching experience and this came across in his persona. Therefore, I was happy that he agreed to coach me for 6 sessions. I had had 2 sessions of therapy/hypnosis, for weight loss before, but no life coaching.

I came to the sessions with an open-mind, with no actual goals in mind, just the need to be heard. I had general feelings of worthlessness and not being ‘good enough’. We discussed this initial feeling and discovered that it came down to an issue that I have always struggled with, that of rejection, and fear of rejection, of ‘everyone’ else being better than me, which Paul helped me name and recognise. Clarity was one of the main intentions for me to be coached. The fear aspect was apparent from my initial session, and remained through to the last one. My sessions with Paul made me understand the impact that rejection through my life has had on me. The feelings of worthlessness, stemmed from bullying, (and subconsciously through my being conceived in troubled circumstances, surrounded by family secrets), was cathartic to verbalise, when there is no-one else to speak to. Paul made me recognise the limiting beliefs I have ingrained into my psyche now, my assuming of intentions of others. I now have a clearer understanding of myself, my inbuilt mantra of ‘you’re ok, I’m not ok’, that has been an unwanted guest for so long. Now it has been recognised I can see it for what it is, self-inflicted abuse, I can make steps to eradicating it from my life. Paul is totally professional, well organised and punctual. Paul is a listening, reflective rock. Calm and a good listener, empathetic, perceptive and strong to lean against.

'With Paul as your coach you will have open and honest dialogue which creates motivation for working with your understanding of your own potential to achieve more and in a new and different way.'

I had six sessions with Paul and we discussed the leadership challenges which I had leading and managing two different educational institutions at the same time. During these sessions I also explored my personal characteristics and leadership abilities and how I could improve these. Paul supported this process of my development with coaching models and personalised challenges which continues to give me inspiration in my job as a leader. With Paul as your coach you will have open and honest dialogue which creates motivation for working with your understanding of your own potential to achieve more and in a new and different way. Paul’s coaching is based on his professional knowledge of coaching and I would welcome him to continue to support me in my professional career and challenges ahead.

'I am looking forward to touring again with a strong hand.'

If you are thinking of having a consultation with Paul, then I would highly recommend it. I had a 1-hour zoom consultation, and within that session, he was able to assess my playing in a way that no other teacher or specialist had previously. We both narrowed down the root cause of my RSI, which happened to be a warm-up exercise that I’d been taught eight-years prior. Paul’s approach was candid and genuine, and I felt a great sense of relief to have my problem so clearly spelt out to me. I am looking forward to touring again with a strong hand.

'I am deeply grateful to Paul.'

I’m deeply grateful to Paul, and the team of experts he works with. In one session where he observed my playing and the issues I was facing, he identified with clarity some aspects that I had ignored for too long. I’m now working daily on the mind-set and the overall approach that Paul suggested to me, and I’m slowly but surely re-discovering the playing and music living that I’ve been dreaming of, for a very long time. Thank you Paul!
