He has also coached individuals as diverse as Airline Captains, senior members of the Clergy and young people facing the challenges of the future.

David worked his magic with me over a period of a few months. I started at a point where I knew changes were needed. However the end direction was not what I was expecting. Davids help unlocked attitude and ability which opened my mind to new career options. I could not recommend David highly enough. I hope my new employer agrees!

I have recently had the pleasure of working with David as part of a law firm personal development programme. David encouraged me to focus on my career goals and to determine what steps were needed to achieve them. David is extremely easy to talk to and offered positive encouragement at all stages, whilst at the same time challenging me to push the boundaries of my comfort zone. I would have no hesitation recommending David as a professional coach to others.

I have found David's coaching very helpful - he has a way of getting me to think about the fundamental issues and consider the alternatives for addressing them; David also provided a wise sounding board as I have then worked through how best to tackle things.

I worked with David for a period of 10 months on a workplace academy programme. David's advice was practical and effective and he was a great support throughout our time working together. David is organised, approachable and very fair. I would thoroughly recommend his advice. KP, Associate
