My stress levels were high with a demanding full-time job, two young children, a wife suffering regular bouts of depression and having just moved house. My confidence was low and my current job didn’t make me feel a success – nor did my role as a father. I’d lost sight of where I was going in my life. I realised I was too hard on myself and needed to make career choices that would bring satisfaction and financial security.
In the coaching we looked at what made me feel fulfilled and how I could start to bring this into my work life. I learnt that my expectations of myself were totally unrealistic and just added to my negative feelings. With David’s help I discovered how to make my expectations of myself more realistic so I could begin to feel a success again. David helped me tackle my fears so I could overcome my procrastination and start to take some positive steps with my career.
I began to feel much more positive about myself and about my life, because I was doing something to improve things. My relationships grew stronger, and I got on top of my finances for the first time. After years of being unhappy in my job, I’d discovered what would make me happy, and gained the confidence to find a new career as a special needs teacher.
I have very much valued working with David – the sessions have been excellent. I value her combination of kindness and sympathy and straight-forwardness. I could never have imagined feeling this empowered and this me or making so much progress in so little time. I gained the confidence to start out on a new path in my life which I am finding scary, challenging and immensely rewarding. I can’t believe what I’ve achieved!
