Horizons Life Coaching Clients come from an incredibly wide variety of professions and sectors.
Over the years, Paul's have included doctors and nurses, lawyers and police officers, business owners and stockbrokers. He has coached students and graduates, artists and musicians, professionals and single mothers, the retired and the unemployed. It is not necessary for a coach to know the details of a client’s profession because no advice or guidance is provided by the coach.
On the corporate side, Paul’s clients have included senior sales executives from the computer systems company Oracle, managers from a major North East Recruitment Agency, and the regional manager of a prestigious national charity.
Whilst client confidentiality is absolutely paramount, Paul has been both delighted and honoured to receive a number of testimonials from clients who have agreed to their comments being displayed on this website:
"Since I completed my sessions I feel that I have truly re-connected with myself and feel much more confident. I have managed to take decisions with confidence and have a much better understanding of my career plans. I have more financial security and most of all I am a much more approachable friend. I truly now can contribute more happiness and joy to other people." Nadia Dhean, actress, Newcastle upon Tyne
"Paul helped me to understand myself better and plan my future career and life goals. Within a few months I had changed jobs, applied for an MBA and dramatically enhanced my personal life. His coaching sessions by Skype were flexible and invaluable. Highly recommend." Matty Red, Financial Advisor, Switzerland
"The coaching sessions were invaluable. They gave me a good understanding of what was important to me and how to apply that to my working life. Having been stuck in a rut at work to some extent, the sessions allowed me to focus on what I needed to do in the short term, while helping me look at what I wanted to do in the longer term. Based on those sessions I was able to re-build my confidence and make some clear decisions about my life, taking the necessary steps towards a new direction." Chris Masters, Internal Communications Manager, Newcastle upon Tyne
"Many thanks for your highly professional assistance over the past weeks. I have emerged from the process invigorated, full of fresh ideas, and highly motivated!" Rex Winter, solicitor, Newcastle upon Tyne
“I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of my four life coaching sessions which have been absolutely invaluable to me at this stage in my life. As a new mum who has recently lost one job and started another, it has been a real source of pleasure to spend some very rare ‘me time’ taking stock of my current situation and planning for the future. You are an excellent coach Paul and I have been full of admiration for the way in which you have been able to guide me towards identifying my goals and aspirations while remaining completely impartial and non-judgmental – a unique skill! I would recommend Horizons Life Coaching to anyone, without hesitation.” Julia, Marketing Director, Newcastle upon Tyne
“I found the life coaching sessions very useful. They helped me to look at myself from the outside, and to understand and evaluate my beliefs. As Paul said, he’s there to ‘hold a mirror’, and it is so true. I feel that the sessions were invaluable in preparing me for my new managerial role, which is proving to be very challenging and demanding indeed! The sessions helped me to be able to embrace these challenges, recognise my daily achievements and manage my own personal expectations.” KK, Team Manager, South Tyneside
“Paul is an excellent coach who has great listening skills and was very capable at keeping me focussed and finding ways to overcome problems. He has a nice easy going manner and is very receptive when it comes to discussing and overcoming problems but he ensures that both the client and the coach remain focussed on the goal or desired outcome. It also became apparent that Paul has a wealth of business knowledge and experience which I believe would be very beneficial to his future clients. With this in mind I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him as an excellent Coach who has a thoroughly professional approach to finding solutions.” Dave Dougan, Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands
"Thank you Paul, I wish to thank you very much for your coaching. I found you to be extremely helpful. It was wonderful to have someone really listening to what I was saying and helping me to see in which direction I needed to be heading in order to overcome my issues. Your intuitive approach really helped me to clarify where I needed to make changes in my life and more importantly, how I was going to implement those changes. Since then I have been doing so to very beneficial outcomes in all the areas we covered during my sessions with you Paul. I would not hesitate to come back to you for further coaching in the future.” Fiona Young, Orpington, Kent
“I have learned that people will forget what you said; people will forget what you did; but people will never forget how you made them feel”
