After several years of major stresses in my life, the death of my mother and the birth of my last child, I felt like I'd lost control of my ability to deal with stress. I had been suffering from anxiety and panic attack for some time, at what felt to me like completely random moments. Being someone who has quite pronounced trust issues and a previous negative experience with counselling, I looked for someone I felt I could trust and really open up to. In Andrew I found a true kindred spirit, someone who made me feel completely safe and valued. I found myself opening up in a way that really surprised me.
"I looked for someone I felt I could trust and really open up to."
Andrew provides such a warm and open space, you find yourself letting go of all the issues that have been bottled up inside and in letting go, you reach a place of deep inner calm. My sessions felt so relaxed, much like talking to an old friend. I never once felt led or forced in any one direction but somehow Andrew guided me through all the issues in my life that had brought me to this point in time and then guided me back out the other side a totally different person. One who can now manage the feelings of rising stress before they lead to the anxiety and stress of the past. I would wholeheartedly recommend Andrew to anyone, whatever the issue, in Andrew you will find somebody who really cares.
"Time well spent."
I found in Andrew a like soul who was attuned to my way of thinking and understood, without much ado, where I was and where I wanted to be. He provided me with a safe environment to share private thoughts and emotions and enabled me to look at myself from a different perspective, to let go of old self images and move on to re-imagine my world. Time well spent. John
Another knock back put me in a place that I didn’t want to be. So, after three nights of no sleep, I decided to do something about it. I’ve had so many counselling sessions in the past and wanted to try something different. How lucky was I to find Andrew. From my initial meeting I knew I wanted to try NLP. I actually looked forward to our meetings, as every session was different, although you can re visit anything if you’re not sure.
"Here I am a few months later holding my head up high and not looking back."
Andrew, well, he has a warmth about him that makes you feel relaxed and at ease. I’m not going to go into NLP as it is adapted to you, but here I am a few months later holding my head up high and not looking back. Helen
Whilst studying for my degree in the final stages I was unable to motivate myself to work on my dissertation in spite of having the knowledge at hand. I was actively self-sabotaging and procrastinating with no idea why. Working through neurological levels with Andrew uncovered my unconscious reasons for doing so and upon examining and exploring them deeper my motivation returned and I successfully finished. Joanne
I was drawn to coaching because I felt a need to have a deep understanding of my thought processes. I also wanted to learn the skills and knowhow to change those thought processes. I found that the coaching reinforced that I have the knowledge inside me already and this has gradually opened up my brain so that it works better. It has been a way of working through the black spots in my thinking without any pain. For the future I can envisage a life without the anxiety that has been holding me back in many areas. I have learnt to trust in the process of life. I now have a knowledge that I am where I need to be at this moment. Moving forwards, I see coaching as a fundamental tool for reaching my equilibrium.
