How has coaching helped me? Confidence; time to reflect away from the people and place of work; techniques and tips for managing change and handling tough conversations.                                   Peter Mabbitt – Deputy Headteacher



Colin genuinely listens to you & is then able to guide you to keys you already have within you to open the doors to genuine change. He uses very practical tools & exercises which he explains well, so you never feel lost. A brilliant coach who puts you at ease as soon as the session starts & throughout.
