Client Comments

Phil’s skill in the use of language is exemplary and I have personally met few to equal his precision, thought and elegance, in what to many would seem as though it was just conversation.

Wayne Baker: Technical Manager A &J Gummers Ltd

Whilst he is firm and insistent on achieving goals set, he is non-directive and has encouraged me to find my own solutions. He practices clarifying, reflecting, creating space for an overview. We have also left me with a number of methods of addressing situations, which I can use on my own in future I have, with medical approval, been able to significantly reduce some of my pain controlling medication.
Prior to sessions with Phil, I felt I was inexorably travelling towards life in a wheelchair, now I am positively travelling a way from that position.
Although he does point out bad ways of thinking, he is not critical or judgmental in any way.
