I would honestly recommend Brian to anyone. He is an enthusiastic, personable coach who genuinely has a passion for supporting others.
Brian helped support me through an ongoing career change. His four step process was incredibly helpful to me. It gave a real insight into myself, my preferences, my beliefs and ultimately supported me in setting goals and helping me find solutions that I would not be able to do by myself. He was able not only to lend me advice as well as help me find my own answers. But he was also able to put me in contact with like minded people who I believe will support my endeavours. Working with the Brian was a definite investment that I believe will pay dividends in the months and years to come.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Brian, he totally brought a different prospective to my thinking (long overdue) and really supported me through the process of changing my mindset and how to move my career in a different direction.

Brian also suggested lots of techniques and tools to help me with refocussing my work life, as well as identifying my values and being proud of who I am and what I have achieved.

Brian is a fantastic coach, adapted his own methods to suit me and gave me a new perspective on work/life balance which has led to me taking exciting steps.
Would recommend 10/10, thanks Brian!

I had never thought about a career in the past- they were just jobs to me. However at the age of 36 I had decided that perhaps I had been holding myself back from finding a job or indeed a career, worthwhile. I have worked with Brian for 4 weeks and in those sessions we worked through the DISC Profile as well as the Saboteur Assessment- these gave me a better understanding of what my saboteurs are, and how they have a hand in stopping me to reach my ideal career. I have begun to value my strengths and harness them to help me move forward in life and career. I am still on this journey with Brian, but I can see a light at the end of this tunnel, and I look forward to exploring more ways to reach my full potential. More...

I cannot recommend Brian highly enough, his insightful and calming demeanour were invaluable to me at a career crossroads, exactly what I needed. Additionally his work on my cv left it with a polished and concise look. Can't thank you enough Brian. More...

Working with Brian was a great experience. He is extremely positive and has solid, non-judgmental advice that really helps.

Brian is such a pleasure to work with! He is extremely approachable, highly perceptive, and hugely non-judgemental. He has a vast toolkit that he employs with great skill. In the 6 weeks that I have worked with Brian, I have experienced a significant amount of internal growth and self-awareness, which is certainly not what I expected at the age of 53! I have been able to rediscover my core values, recognise my mind-set and realise that it can be changed for the better. I am using my new skills and self-knowledge to hopefully make the future a much brighter place than it would otherwise have been!
I would therefore highly recommend Brian to everyone, regardless of age and career stage.

Brian's advice is practical and useful, but he also helped me re-orient my approach to my career. I'd strongly recomment you get in touch if you need help negotiating the job market.

simple, direct, concise. The session was very interesting and it helped me to create a conceptual map for my goals and what I do wanted to achieve for my career and my next years. I recommend him to every one!

Brian has been a big help in getting me to realise my true values as well as my preferences and how those values and preferences match up against my current work. The whole process was hard, but one that I can now build on for the future. Thank you Brian I would not have got to this stage without your help ! On that note I would recommend Brian to anyone who is looking for help from a professional coach. More...

I went there completely lost in life and in career but now I have a direction which makes me very excited and happy. I highly recommend him.
Thank you Brian!:)

Brian was excellent from the start, very personable and interested in what I was about. He used his contacts to refer me to people who may have been of interest in my path to changing my career. I was making a huge jump in my career and Brian helped add a little calm to what can be a daunting prospect. Brian was the second coach I spoke to and by far the better out of the two and by far the cheaper. Highly recommend. More...

Brian supported me immensely when I had hit a wall with my career and wasn't sure what to do or how to deal with it. By the end of my sessions I could see a light at the end of the tunnel and formed a much more structured and positive plan. Brian also helped me overcome some work based anxiety's which gave me my confidence back. Brian comes highly recommended from me and I will continue to work with him as and when needed. More...

Many thanks for your review Carrie. It was great to work with you, especially as at the end of the sessions you had secured a new job building on the skills you have. I look forward to hearing about your success in the future.

24 May 2021

I found the free Discovery Session with Brian to be hugely valuable - his calm, warm, intuitive approach was very effective at helping me to begin to unpack all the thoughts and questions in my head. Even in this one session, I was able to start identifying and owning key strengths that I have, both personally and professionally. Thank you, Brian. More...

22 May 2021

Working with Brian really helped me to become more self-aware and understand what is important to me as an individual. He helped guide me with his year plan and some of his tips, prompted me to reframe my thinking and become more of a confident person. He was always professional and the meetings always felt like an open and honest environment. It has been a great initial push for me to independently achieve my goals over the coming months and years. More...

He need to be more specific and help me for the work

10 May 2021

Brian is very kind, warm with a positive orientation, and very pleasant to work with. Brian from the discovery sessions has identified and acknowledge my strengths and skills which made me feel empowered but also confident. He took the time to give me a better understanding how the coaching sessions would be like and what to expect. At the beginning of our sessions, I was feeling very chaotic about what decisions to make in relation to my career progression. Through our 4 sessions, I have managed to gain not only clarity in relation to the transition of my career but also have made decisions, plans, and goals for my career progression and where I am going. Through our sessions, I was reminded about my values, my life purpose, my personality, and the small steps that I need to take to achieve the bigger goals. Not only I benefited from the decision-making for my career direction but also I gained a lot on a personal level. Thank you, Brian, it was a pleasure to work with you! More...

Brian has helped me through a difficult time where I have been contemplating my role as Mum and my career and working out what the best path for me is right now.

His support and intuitive guidance is so helpful, the personality test also was very accurate and helps me understand what kind of jobs might be better suited to me. I highly recommend  Brian, you won't be disappointed!

I was a bit nervous about going through a career coaching process, as it’s something I’ve never done before. Brian creates a friendly, non judgemental and no pressure environment which puts you at ease straight away. Brian really gets to the root of the problems using various techniques and asking challenging questions to really get to you thinking! I’ve found the sessions with Brian really useful and has helped me improve my self confidence on a professional level. I would recommend Brian to anyone who is considering hiring a career coach for whatever reason. More...

Just in the first free 'discovery' session Brian has helped me to make real progress, so much so that this was all I needed to be able to make my decision about my future. Despite no longer requiring coaching and not continuing onto the paid sessions Brian has still been helpful and supportive! even offering to help if I ever wanted to just run an idea past him! I am almost slightly sad that i'm not going to spend more time with Brian as my first impression of him is as a fantastic coach who I truly did feel a good professional connection with! But who knows what the future will hold for me, I may need coaching services yet! and in that event, I know the first person I'll call on is Brian!! his service is excellent and he put's in 100% even in the first free session, absolutely no catches!

Working with Brian has been brilliant. I needed to make a huge change for the better regarding my career but I was having major confidence issues and had no idea where to start. With Brians help I was able to analyse things and get back in the drivers seat. I'm sure I was not the most straightforward person to deal with due to being so overwhelmed and lost, but he utilised different approaches and resources and got me to a point where I was able to figure out what I am aiming for, and since then I've gone from strength to strength. I went from feeling paralysed with anxiety about my situation a couple of months ago, to now having job offers in the field I've wanted to pursue for years. He did everything that he said he would do, and he made sure that I did the same. On top of everything he's a genuine character and we were able to have a few 'lols' along the way. Very much worth it. Thanks again Brian :) More...

25 April 2021

My coaching sessions with Brian have been extremely valuable in helping me to gain a different perspective on my life and career goals. Knowing what direction to pursue can be a very difficult problem and since my coaching experience I believe I have a better understanding of myself and what I want. More...

23 April 2021

I worked with Brian last year as I embarked on some major transitions in my career. This is the first time I have used such a service, so I wasn't sure exactly what to expect, but Brian enabled me to clarify objectives, understand exactly what I was looking for (and not! ), and where my focus should be maintained. Not only would I recommend Brian for achieving similar results, but he is a fantastic contact to have in your network and has proven he is willing to help in any way he can.

If you are looking for a professional and approachable coach to help clear the fog and guide you on the right path, you won't go far wrong with Brian.

I would highly recommend Brian, he gives a lot of attention to my needs and is very understanding. I am currently a student in my final year so it’s been a great help having Brian to guide me with some very important career decisions for the next phase of my life. He gives very impartial well rounded advice. He has really helped me understand my strengths and motivations better and how I can apply these to all aspects of my life as well as career wise. He’s very patient and kind, I trust his judgement and look forward to having the rest of my sessions with him. More...
