"I received coaching from Tom during a period of transition in my career, when I was seeking a promotion. Tom's considered and thoughtful approach really helped me to see my full potential and gave me a huge confidence boost. Tom's skillful questioning and attentive listening ensured that the issues I was facing were fully addressed, and I would wholeheartedly recommend Alive and Thrive Wellbeing." (Senior teacher, St Augustine's Catholic College)
“Just wanted to thank you for some really inspiring sessions that you have delivered.” (Principal Lecturer for HRM, University of Roehampton)
"Tom was able to make our member of staff grasp this concept [Diversity and inclusion] and change his point of view. The outcome was that the member of staff understood and realised how important diversity and fairness is within the workplace. (HR Manager, Augustus Green Printers Ltd)
"The coaching session was useful to be myself and express my thoughts on my wellbeing and being independent." (Senior manager, Pension Protection Fund,)
"The session run on diversity and inclusion was really interesting. It made me think about what motivates me and the way that I behave sometimes and I can use that to look at the way other people behave and how we can help to influence change to build the culture that we want in our workplace." ( HR Manager, Metropolitan Housing Housing Trust Limited)
"Would have loved to have more [coaching] sessions. Very helpful" ( Employee, Pension Protection Fund)
"Tom was excellent, very easy to talk to and did not make me feel as though I was at fault. He listened and explained that I could control how I was feeling with a few simple changes. This would lead to me feeling more in control and less frustrated at work." (Manager, Shropshire Council)
“The coaching was very effective and it has given me a different perspective and the exercise shown would definitely help relieve stress and increase my productivity.” (Manager, DATABAC Group Ltd)

EC: "I really enjoyed my coaching sessions with Catherine. She made me feel calm and at ease and was able to support me to set clear and achievable goals for myself. I would absolutely recommend Catherine as a coach; she is warm, supportive and holds you to account in a nurturing and understanding way. Thanks Catherine!"
GM: "I have found Catherine so supportive and helpful in my process of working out what I need to do and how to do it. Her calm, warm and insightful manner enabled me to work out the next steps I needed to take and how I am going to do it. I feel my understanding of what I can offer and the opportunities that I can create for myself are much greater now. We did 4 sessions all of which were 1 hour."
MP: "In 2020 I've faced a lot of challenges and found using a coach (for the first time) very beneficial. I have enjoyed four one hour sessions on November 5th, 12th, 19th and the 24th. I've found the whole process very positively productive. Catherine is a very perceptive person and I found her questions in our sessions helpful to understand myself better and make positive personal transitions. One particular suggestion she made, to create a Vision Board, is something I am embracing as part of my goal-setting strategy. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have come up with this idea on my own. I highly recommend Catherine.."
HB: "I undertook three-hour long sessions of coaching with Catherine. In these sessions, Catherine helped me with a management problem at work, a difficulty in conflict of ideas with my boss, and exploring my emotions and character strengths. In all of these sessions Catherine was exceptionally helpful at encouraging me to think through the specific issue, look at it from different angles and create a plan of action to be followed up in subsequent weeks. She set me some challenges which I found very beneficial in focusing me to stay on track each week."
GM: "Dear Catherine, I wanted to confirm the dates of our coaching sessions and give you some feedback. I gained clarity around many issues and I felt understood. I liked the consistency throughout the sessions. Your personality as a kind and non-judgemental person enriched the sessions. Your questions led to steps that helped me to formulate action plans. I am grateful for the time and effort you put into the sessions.."
