Clients Are Getting Great Results
The work I do and the impact it can have, is best described through these client testimonials which I hope proffer powerful and positive affirmation of what we can achieve together.
I am grateful to these people for taking the time to pen something of their experience and allowing me to publish it, although, as you’ll appreciate, with anonymity.
Set Up For Success
I met Graeme at a seminar I attended while looking for a coach. I had just made the decision to start my own consulting practice after a long and successful career as a C-Suite executive. I can honestly say I was very lucky to meet Graeme as he has helped me in so many ways it is difficult to write them down in a short testimonial.
Graeme has a wealth of knowledge and experience and is a great resource for anyone looking to start their own business or make a career change. He really helped me hone and deliver the messaging I wanted to convey to prospective clients. He also helped me focus on the services I wanted to provide and separate myself from the competition. Starting a new business is an exciting and scary adventure that is always more challenging than you think it will be.
Graeme does a great job of providing the tools and techniques you need to deal with the scary so you can focus on the exciting and rewarding side of owning your own business. I already had a lot of passion for starting my own business but working with Graeme ignited that passion even further and allowed me to focus that energy in a way I would not have achieved without his help. Graeme will push you out of your comfort zone when needed. Which is necessary if you are going to be successful in your own business.
After working with Graeme for four months I am confident he will be a key ingredient to the success of my business. In addition, he is a great person who really wants to help you succeed and goes out of his way the make that happen. As many others have commented, I have made a lifelong friend and mentor in Graeme.
The testimonial “Coaching Lifted my Gloom with Spectacular Results” is a good description of what it is like to work with Graeme!
Feel Happier Re-energised & Refocussed on the Future
I was introduced to Graeme by a friend at a time when I was facing a number of career and personal challenges. For years I felt that my thought process had become cluttered, I was lacking in focus and making decisions was a struggle.
I also had a complex childhood and had struggled for years to make sense of how this had impacted on my behaviour and decisions. I must admit I was cynical at first but was open to giving the process a try.
I found the process Graeme took me through to be both enlightening and objective. He challenged many of the beliefs I had about why I behaved in the way I did and what motivated me. He introduced me to a number of mental exercises that helped unclutter my mind and clarify my thinking. He encouraged me to make some significant changes to me and family’s life during the process.
Today I feel happier, re-energised and refocussed on the future, looking forward to what the next chapter will bring.
In Six Short Months I Achieved Everything
I was introduced to Graeme by a friend of mine at a time that I was desperate to change numerous aspects of my life most notably exiting the company I owned to concentrate on something that I was more passionate about.
I had met with numerous other coaches in the past so was quite hesitant to initially speak with Graeme, however from our first conversation it was clear that he was very different from the rest.
Graeme is particularly good as he has real world experience in a multitude of areas that enable him to give great advice and assistance with basis. In addition to that it is very clear that Graeme is a genuine person who takes his clients success very seriously and is often willing to go over and above what someone could expect to ensure a successful outcome for his clients.
I cannot thank Graeme enough for all of his assistance and guidance, In the six months since meeting him I have been able to achieve everything I had initially set out to and much more.
Today I Woke Up Smiling!
Before meeting Graeme I was literally on my knees – physically, mentally emotionally. I was in a toxic business partnership and couldn’t see a way out, especially with the complication of being in the midst of COVID lock downs.
I had no energy and felt like I didn’t have any control of my life. Graeme took me on a journey at a speed I felt comfortable with but didn’t hold back from challenging me when required. And what a journey. Now I feel completely different.
I have more energy. I have more confidence. I have more focus and better relationships. I’m in a business I love working with excellent clients and with a future, in business and personally, that I couldn’t have imagined a year ago.
Today I woke up smiling!
Musician Finds Enlightenment In Lockdown
It’s really quite incredible how much more enlightened I feel. Going into this has been one of the best decisions I’ve made and to be able to help my wife too, has been an enormous bonus.
You really do have a gift and you are very special to us both. Thank you so much once again.
My Astonishing Transformation In Lockdown
To say I was sceptical about speaking to Graeme and engaging him to coach me would be an understatement. How could anyone really encourage me to see a better way to live my life or help me enjoy a more positive future.
I was feeling low and dejected. My old self had left the building years ago and I was becoming a shell of the former fun and loving person I used to be. I had gone through redundancy and a very difficult emotional time at home. I feel like Graeme released and unblocked some things buried deep within me. The results have been astonishing in just 10 short but intensive weeks. I can honestly say that without Graeme’s insights, support and coaching, I wouldn’t be where I am now. All I would ask, is for anyone who has any personal or career/work issues going on in their life right now in this lockdown, contact Graeme and let him help you discover the passion you have inside.
Ex-Professional Footballer – Graeme Changed My Life
Having met Graeme in the strangest of places (no further comment), I knew instantly, listening to what he had to say, I wasn’t where I wanted to be, I wasn’t going where I wanted to go – “I was on the wrong plane!”.
Graeme and I started working together from then on and it literally changed my life. I’ve now set up my own Wealth Management practice and have the belief and confidence being the best me I can possibly be will be every bit good enough. Even better than I ever imagined. I’m in control, I’m completely present and I’m being my authentic self.
If I ever see anyone at a crossroads and not knowing which way to turn, I certainly know the man that will help them choose the best path for them.
Graeme is now a lifelong friend. A brilliant one at that.
Unblocking My Limitations – I Am Flying In Lockdown
What sets Graeme apart from other business coaches is that he is not afraid to give his personal opinion. One that is based on his own experiences good and bad.
I engaged his services at a time in my career when I felt I was “rudderless” I was demotivated and lacking in direction. I had originally wanted a set of targets and help with the formulation of goals. Graeme took all this on board and helped me deeply and truly understand how my early experiences had contributed to some of the frustrations I was experiencing now.
In turn we ‘unblocked’ some of my limitations and he helped me make some significant decisions regarding my career.
I unreservedly recommend him and if he decides he can work with you grab the opportunity with both hands.
Coaching Lifted my Gloom with Spectacular Results
Having never used a life coach, motivator, mentor or had anything to do with airport self-help books before, the idea of taking professional career advice – or ‘mind training’ – from a stranger was not one that particularly appealed to me.
However, I was at a career crossroads, attempting to pivot from an executive position on a newspaper to a mid-level role in a PR agency and it was going spectacularly badly.
I felt completely demoralised, lacking in confidence and ‘lost’. My mojo had gone and I no idea how to get it back. I accepted a friend’s advice to see Graeme not out of any particular faith that he could help, but from sheer desperation.
The result has been absolutely spectacular.
From the first moment I met Graeme I liked and trusted him, and within half an hour of the first session I was convinced he could not only lift my gloom and self-doubt but be of absolute and specific value to me in building a new career.
Quite how he does this is beyond me. It’s not an illusion or a magic trick but a formula to encourage leaps of faith in oneself that I have never encountered before. From generating no business, I was bringing it in with confidence, not because of anything extra Graeme taught me – the idea of ‘teaching to sell’ is almost a heresy to him – but because he has shown me how to rediscover what was already there within my ability, and build on it.
Everything he does and says, the exercises he recommends, the books he gives one to read, add up to just about the most unpredictable formula for life and business success and happiness I am ever likely to encounter.
It’s not airy-fairy stuff, it’s not fashionable or gimmicky and it doesn’t involve ‘ten steps’ to anything. It is solid professional advice, delivered in a life-affirming package, that is given to help YOU and YOUR business soar.
If it was within my power I’d give Graeme a knighthood tomorrow. As it is, I have made a friend for life who I know will always steer me right. Cheers, Graeme (and a special thank you to my mate who recommended him.)
Real Life Coaching Direct from the Coalface
“Thank you for your valuable input over the past 18 months. The ideas and guidance you have given me in my personal life have also added huge value to my business in terms of leadership, marketing and the subsequent increase in revenue.
You are one of only a few coaches that walks the walk having built and sold your own business, so your advice is not from a book, it’s straight from the coalface.”
Coaching Brought Wisdom Experience and Business Acumen
“I approached Graeme for some advice. He didn’t know me previously but his great reputation preceded him. As can only be with Graeme we became good friends and he became a great mentor of mine.
His knowledge, warmth, care, love and concern run deep and is authentic.”His wisdom, experience, business acumen and sensitivity surpass most people I know and as a result his guidance and advice helped me immensely and immeasurably and I am forever grateful to him for that. Anyone who has the privilege of working with Graeme is exceptionally lucky and I would have no hesitation recommending him.”
Graeme’s Coaching Supports My Personal Journey
“Graeme brings to his work an enquiring mind, and a full-hearted willingness to both help and fully support us in our personal journey. His modesty, gentleness, understanding and acceptance of the human condition shows in his approach and in his manner.
Not only does Graeme hear us, but he also carefully listens to what we are saying, as he is fully present, and demonstrates this by the accurate written feedback that he sends out afterwards. He is psychologically centred, grounded, and still, which has to come from his learning from the experience of both his personal successes and setbacks that he has faced and had to deal with in his own life. He is open and available to hear our stories, following where they take us together, without imposing his own ideas or agenda and helping us to try and make sense of what we are having to deal with. I am very pleased to know him and to have worked with him.”
CEO – Graeme Guides and Supports Me with Clarity
“As the CEO of an independent company operating in a niche market space, I am often sceptical about bringing in outside help, however from our first meeting I knew Graeme was a good fit.
He has an uncanny ability to gently guide you through all aspects of your business and personal life, ultimately helping you to make the right decision so you can move forward with confidence and absolute clarity.”
Real Business Start Up Coaching
“I was in the early stages of my new business in the health sector and had been recommended to Graeme as a Life and Business Coach. His easy approach and relaxed style immediately put me at ease.
At a time when I was struggling with lots of ideas to take the company to the next level, Graeme concentrated on marketing ideas, implementation and growth. He gave me the confidence that I can do it! I could relate to his style of working as like him, I also believe in the power of the mind in transforming any areas of our life. This was a concept I had followed in my personal life, but not for my business. Graeme has helped me to make a big impact and I am now well on that journey.”
Expanding Business – Graeme is a Brilliant Mentor
“Graeme has helped me to clarify my personal and business goals, plan for success and is a brilliant mentor as I undergo the expansion of my business.
He makes the complex very easy to understand and has both the passion and business experience, which gives confidence in his approach.”
Valuable Coaching Through Sale of my Company
I was introduced to Graeme when in the midst of potentially selling my business. I felt uncertain about the best course of action and conflicted regarding my own needs and the needs of my business partner. Graeme listened intently and grasped the details of my circumstances incredibly swiftly.
He was immediately credible to me and managed to provide a balanced input of support and challenge which was invaluable. He was professional, confident, and supremely competent and responsive. Thank you Graeme.
Business Coaching and Mentoring for Growth
“As a business owner running a successful company, I had been feeling swamped with so many issues in the growth phase of my business. I met with Graeme and through several open discussions, I had the chance to analyse what was happening,look at the priorities that I faced and see my business from the grass roots upwards.
Graeme’s style is more like one of a friend who is determined to do everything he can to help. Graeme is walking his talk having run, grown and sold a very successful business himself.”
Coaching To Overcome Depression & Anxiety
“We had tried everything… several doctors and therapists but nothing seemed to help our daughter pull out of her deep depression and total lack of self-worth… until a wonderful client of mine suggested we reach out to Graeme. She worked with him over a six-month period.
Graeme went out of his way to understand her world and connect with her in a way we had not seen possible and slowly she resurfaced and bounced back. His kindness, empathy and practical outlook touched her and us both and showed us a different way of being parents. We will forever owe him. The clincher came last month when they both met socially and she said … I have a love for life again…thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”
Graeme’s Coaching Gives Clear Strategy For Growth
“Graeme has been a tremendous help to both myself and my team. Having already grown a successful business, Graeme has not only provided a clear strategy to grow our business in a way that delivers results, but also with efficiency and in a way that suits our way of working.
Graeme is also a great personal motivator and mentor and that alone is worth its weight in Gold!”
Graeme Shows Me Why My Crisis was My Opportunity
“Graeme is a true giver and has become a close friend, confidant, mentor and partner in helping me see clearly through crisis to opportunity. He continually gives me tools to monetise my talent.
If I think where I was twelve months ago to where I am now, the improvements are way beyond where I would have been without him. It’s been an incredible journey so far.”
