I started coaching sessions with Brian at a point after graduating when I felt lost and was having trouble moving forward with my career. Although I didn’t know what to expect, Brian’s step by step approach was very engaging and efficient in first recognising my values and my style of working through my DISC profile. It was a way of knowing my approach in life and how I can use it best.
He has been very kind, empathetic and a great listener!
I always looked forward to speaking with him with updates in my life and discussing the next step.
After these coaching sessions I’ve had a shift in perspective and feel like I can use these tools as a means of moving forward. 100% would recommend!
Having lost the job I loved as a result of Covid-19, I felt quite lost, confused and fearful about the future. Brian coached me during this period which was enormously beneficial. Having re-engaged with my values as part of the process, painting a picture of the what the future could look like and working through the barriers I was holding up, we put structure and focus into my plan. As a result, I felt more positive, in control and selective in my approach to finding a new job that is both purposeful and interesting. I’ve made good progress in these challenging times and in a large part this was down to meeting Brian regularly, which kept me on track. Brian has a kind and empathic approach, is a very good listener, asks thought provoking questions and is very easy to talk to. I would absolutely recommend Brian as a coach and thank him very much for his support at a difficult time.
Brian helped me gain clarity about my goals and his genuine interest and commitment to me as client made it easy for me to feel comfortable during our sessions.
The support Brian has given me has been second to none. He challenged my ways of thinking, which encouraged me to approach my job search in a different way which has opened up new possibilities to me. I was particularly impressed with his practical approach to looking at my career (and my life in general to some extent) which involved completing various exercises around beliefs, values, and guiding principles. I found this really helpful as it helped to clarify the most important things to me in a new role and in a new organisation. I also liked the structured approach he took which included creating a plan of actions each week, and going forwards now that my sessions with him have come to an end. This has helped me to stay focussed on what I’m trying to achieve in the long term, by breaking overwhelming tasks down into smaller tasks and actions. I would highly recommend Brian to anyone wanting support with their career!
Coaching with Brian has been really effective and has helped me to structure and really buckle down to my learning. It was also fun!
Managing the transition from paid employment to self-employed businessman was tricky so I’m pleased I contacted Brian for his coaching expertise. Through our sessions I was able to discover new ways to approach old problems and overcome obstacles in my way. I strongly recommend Brian to others looking to get motivated and confident with their career change decisions and action planning.
I’ve been working with Brian for a few months and will continue to do so into 2021. I originally approached Brian to help me figure out my values, purpose and what I wanted to achieve. He’s helped me to understand my own principles and how I apply them at work which in turn has helped me to understand why some areas of work I’ve found increasingly frustrated. Through Brian’s guidance I’ve been able to take up a new role and align myself back to the things that I truly value.
I worked with Brian to assist me in finding a career at a very difficult time in my life. Very pleased to say that I finished my sessions with him being much more confident in the kinds of things I want to do and how I go about achieving them. Highly recommend him for anyone who’s struggling to know where they are going in life or just want a change of career. Very thankful to have found him.
I am absolutely impressed how accurate DISC profile is. It helped me gain understanding about myself and what type of job should I look for in order to feel fulfiled and live meaningful life.
Brian is a fantastic coach and motivator! He is an excellent listener, and it makes a huge difference. He gave me full support when I was asking a question not related to his coaching expertise; he stayed very professional and helpful. I felt connected with the right person who wants to make a difference in my career plans. I hope to work with him again soon.
Brian was a great help in getting me to concentrate on what I needed to do to start my coaching practice. Firstly he helped me identify my niche and then how to access it. He motivated me to do the actions we agreed to get things done. He has a great way of phrasing questions which bring out the best in me and I have greatly benefited from our sessions.
Having reached a juncture in life where I didn’t know where to go next (both professionally and personally) I started working with Brian. Has has challenged me in a way that is self-reflective. We decided to focus on my career situation first and he has worked with me in such a way that has enabled me to start seeing my true value and how better to approach the job search and applications. Helping to motivate me when I’d much rather hide from the world or have lost my way with a set-piece of work. Brian’s friendly and calm manner puts you at ease, enabling you to get the most out of a session; with a laugh or two too.
I have felt supported, never judged and always valued as a person.
I have worked with Brian over my career and have found him to be really human and thoughtful. Taking absolute care and 100% commitment to his clients. Totally reliable and very experienced coach.
Brian coached me during my transition from full-time employee to primary carer and self-employment while looking at improving my own health. In each session he allowed me time to explain my current challenges and concerns whilst also reminding me of the ultimate goals and encouraging me to make action plans that would address both.
