The first and only thing in a whole year that got me putting one foot in front of the other again was the self-discovery 90 minutes’ session with Chris.
After the sudden breakdown in my marriage, a year ago, there has been one blow after another. My life is unrecognisable from what it was. I found out my husband, who I had been together with for 14 years had nearly bankrupted us. We had to sell the beautiful family home we had worked so hard to own, take my sons out of the Independent school they loved and move to a whole new area. These events were stressful enough, but when my closest family then struggled to adjust to me separating with my husband and my relationships with these people started to breakdown, I was on a slippery slope to rock bottom. I began to struggle at work and eventually my body just said, “Enough!”.
Adam & Mandie
I approached Chris and asked him if he could help my soon to be 21-year-old son, to find his way in life, to find a meaning and a purpose and the transformation has been truly incredible! My son left school at 16 to go college to study Music. He hated it and dropped out after the first term. The following year he went back to sit his A-Levels. He did well in the end but I had to drop him off at the Academy gates to make sure he went, his motivation and determination levels were very low. When it came to him sitting his exams, I had to drop him off as before but his teacher was waiting for him to make sure he went and sat the exams!
Before commencing work with Chris I felt that my life had become stagnant and I was unable to move forwards. I knew I didn’t want what I had, but I was struggling to figure out what I did want!
I was unhappy with my career, my fitness levels and my home-life but I didn’t know where to start making changes to rectify any of this. I went to Chris’s free ‘taster’ session, not because I knew a lot about what he was going to talk about, but because I didn’t! I took the attitude that I had nothing to lose. It was the best decision I’ve made in a long time! The introduction session had made me aware that it was possible to identify and make the changes I required. I decided to build on what I had learned at that session by working one-to-one with Chris.
At the time, I was looking to find a new job as I felt bored in my current role and I felt like I’d come to a dead end. I was looking for something more meaningful to focus my energy on and Chris helped me find that.
Chris is such an easy person to talk to, my 90-minute session flew by in what felt like 20 minutes. Just like a chat with a friend, but filled with lots of useful information to think about and apply in the future.
I went to see Chris with work/study/life balance issues. I was floundering and needed some direction and help with making decisions.
I think the main benefit has been the brilliantly practical nature of the advice Chris has given me. The focus was very much on coming up with strategies and solutions for the issues I was facing. Chris was really positive about everything I was doing or aspiring to, and simple though it sounds, that made an enormous difference to how I felt about things (and myself) too.
As a coach, Chris has a clear and concise approach while embracing a rich and diverse perspective. He has a keen ability to help clients find the best within themselves (and others) while helping them to develop and execute meaningful personal and professional development plans. He has helped me advance not only my own possibilities but has supported so many others in achieving their full potential.
