Here is what people who have experienced the benefit of David's coaching ideas and methods have said:

"I am surprised at how calm and relaxed I am about things now..."

"I am a lot more in control of my life and have started to enjoy everyday things which I have ignored for so long. Other people have noticed a change in me and I can see that I am valued by my clients. The introduction of an action programme to help balance the work has given me a better lifestyle which is much healthier all round. Through the project plan I have been able to include leisure and health activities with decreasing feelings of guilt...

I am surprised at how calm and relaxed I am about things now... By using David's constructive exercises I have been surprised and then delighted by how much difference they have made. Ideas, thoughts and feelings which had been suppressed have gradually come back and given me confidence that I can achieve my dreams." Sylvia, Kent, UK

 

"I have successfully implemented a fundamental change in the control of my reactions which in turn leads me to react differently..."

"I have successfully implemented a fundamental change in the control of my reactions which in turn leads me to react differently and I feel better about the situation...It was reassuring for me previously to think the worst scenario, because the payback was that I could be less likely to feel disappointed with the outcome of a situation. My new approach is a lot easier on the system." Pippa, London, UK

 

"Finding your website was a Godsend...."

"Dear David

Finding your website was a Godsend...My time table plans are gradually coming back to life and I know they will help to keep me focused...Many many thanks." Julie, Bristol, UK
