Below are a few examples of what coaching and counselling clients have said about my work:
"Steve has skills outside the traditional coaching arena and so he was able to hold a space larger than if he were just a coach. Knowing this enabled me to explore areas outside the traditional coaching boundaries with the awareness that Steve was comfortable in both holding the space and facilitating this.
This was particularly useful as my journey through this time involved lots of internal work and reflection with changes happening both internally and externally. I felt comfortable, safe, free to express myself, and share in depth with Steve.
Ifound value in having Steve as a coach and I feel grateful that Steve was able to 'walk with me' on this part of my journey."
Gary M. (2015)
"Steve transfers his vast experience of counselling and supervision brilliantly to his coaching, which is both insightful and generous. He is also an expert supervisor and supervisor of supervisors! "

“I turned to Steve when I realised that a number of issues were stopping me moving on in my professional life. Steve provided the calm, listening ear that I needed. He helped me find clarity, focus and ultimately enabled me to rediscover my self-confidence and drive.”
"Steve, I want to thank you for the tremendous work you have done for us in support of our review of mental health provision for students.
Your sage advice and guidance has helped us to develop a much clearer understanding of the challenges our students face in coping with anxiety, depression and mental ill health, the levels of support we should reasonably provide to them, and how we might transform our approach to encourage good health and well being. You guided us expertly through a consultation process involving both service providers and users and formulated a report which is catalysing a significant and positive change within the University."
