What my clients say
New Awareness • New Choices • Personal Power
"Tom has helped me gain clarity into my current life situation in a gentle and thought-provoking manner. I would have been unable to see the ‘wood for the trees’ on my own and have had some major emotional breakthroughs during our time together."
"Having never had coaching before, I was unsure of the process, but Tom soon put me at ease. I would say that Tom’s coaching style really allows you to get a lot off your chest, if you want to, but he also used some useful coaching techniques and exercises when I was at a loss or unfocused in a session."
"I found the whole process truly transformative, and by the end of our sessions realised I had achieved most of our agreed goals! I’ve now transitioned out of one career and into a new phase of my life with a positive spring in my step thanks to Tom."
Sarah Adams - Web Designer
"My coaching sessions with Tom have massively grown my self confidence, as well as helping me to see more positives in life and push away negative thoughts; particularly when overthinking things, which has had a major positive impact on my life and mental well-being!"
"The approach that Tom took made me feel at ease, so much so I was happy to talk about scenarios out of work and I felt this helped get to my desired outcome. I felt there was a real rapport with Tom, he paid a genuine interest in me and what I wanted to get out of the sessions. It felt like he knew the best approach to take with me, to help find my own way to the answer."
"The experience posed comfortable and uncomfortable questions which is exactly what I wanted. Having someone there to bounce ideas/thoughts off in a really safe environment was exactly what was needed at this moment for me. It wasn't intense and the pace was set at a level I was happy with whilst trying to do the day job too. As it was 1-2-1, it was far more personal, and the private environment also made me feel 'safe' so the learning was more honest."
"I would highly recommend Tom as a coach, and have recommended coaching to others already off the back of the experience I had!"
Greg Trumper - Branch Manager
"Tom is an excellent coach. His style put me instantly at ease and I felt comfortable being myself with him from the off. His questioning enabled me to explore the subject areas and gain a greater understanding of myself."
"Tom was able to tailor the sessions to my current mindset easily and I felt comfortable opening up to him. Coaching for me has been the most natural experience I have had in a learning environment with my own self awareness being my biggest learn. I am now more aware of my impact on others and engaging people differently."
David Smith - Branch Manager
"The whole experience gave me an opportunity to take time out and reflect on how I work and my impact on others. With Tom's help, I had a clear goal of what I wanted to work towards, and found I was able to make great progress on this. Tom kept me on track whilst still allowing me to go off on tangents. This meant we could talk freely and I could really question myself. "
"Coaching has been an extremely useful tool that I could make good use of at a really pivotal time in my career. It allowed me to untangle some unhelpful thoughts and remove some less than useful blockers in my thinking. I was able to build clarity and a clear line of sight towards personal and career goals."
"Tom's style was well suited to my needs in that he achieved an appropriate balance of challenge and support helping me achieve my desired outcomes from coaching. Tom was particularly adept at summarising my sometimes convoluted thoughts in a way that allowed me to see clearly what my drivers and blockers were."
"I wobbled a bit in thinking that there might be a standard coaching technique. At a certain point, I wondered if the way my coaching was progressing was 'normal'. I realised that there is not really a 'normal' and that the nature of coaching is to establish your own needs and desired outcomes and to test out coaching to see if it helps. The chemistry meetings are imperative in testing out whether the coaching is likely to succeed."
"Thank you Tom for providing this development opportunity and for the difference it has made for me."
