“When I first met David I was impressed by his listening skills and then his insights, helping me to make sense of my issues. He built up my trust and confidence that is so valuable in a coach. David’s style is a balance of challenge and support. He challenged my perceptions of myself, so I felt empowered to make changes. I can honestly say I learned a huge amount about myself and my motivation yet he didn’t actually “tell” me anything. My career has really taken off with David’s help, I am now enjoying myself doing what gives me fulfillment and accomplishing so much more with less effort. I would recommend David without hesitation for professionals either with specific issues or just a lack of career focus and direction”
