Maurice and I worked together in a coaching capacity to assess my professional and personal life. He is a first class coach, easy to work with, provocative and challenging and someone whom I have had confidence in confiding with. The experience has been very positive for me personally and has helped me set a new direction for my life which I never considered or thought was possible.Mike Gloyne, Senior Project Manager,
Before I embarked on the coaching process, I had little awareness of just how much influence I had over my life. I had read many books and thought I knew the theory, but the few sessions with Maurice were the catalyst for truly seeing how I am the cause of everything in my life: not just the achievements, but also the uncomfortable truths. This was incredibly empowering, giving me the tools and energy to really change my perspective and put me on a path that will ultimately lead me towards a more purposeful life. I really appreciated Maurice’s ability to expose and challenge some deep-seated yet potentially limiting beliefs, and to see things about me I couldn’t or didn’t want to see. His approach is challenging but not aggressive, encouraging change from within.Clare Naden, Digital Communications Specialist,
I worked with Maurice in professional coaching. He brought clarity and direction to my work with patience and good humour. Over a period of 5 months I made significant advancements with my production which I can attribute in part to Maurice's coaching sessions. I would highly recommend him for all aspects of life coaching.Mironel de Wilde, Film Maker and Yoga Teacher,
My coaching sessions were an amazing journey and I’ve certainly come a long way since the start, ready to launch myself as a freelance communications and editorial expert. I have only worked with one coach before – it led to nothing and was, frankly, a waste of time. The experience with Maurice has been quite different. He helped me assess my professional options, and make a U-turn, and give me the support I needed to branch out by myself. He was tough when appropriate and sharp yet also supportive and encouraging where due. He picks up on the smallest nuances and was relentlessly committed to getting me where I want to be and generous with his time. He provided many resources between sessions and made himself available for further insights after our contracted session. He’s a very effective facilitator and challenged me on life-long beliefs and helped me my essence and what was blocking my success and full potential. For someone who has always struggled with my work choices, battled against the organisations I’ve worked for and often been unhappy and overly stressed in my jobs, this has been eye-opening. The world is my oyster and I now know it, which is why I highly recommend Maurice as coach, consultant and guide.Jeanine Beck - Consultant,
As an entrepreneur I was finding it difficult to know what to set my priorities being caught between running a business and growing one.
Being an entrepreneur can also be a lonely game even if the rewards are there. I had been finding it particularly tough to gain perspective in a number of areas and step outside of myself. Through the coaching and consulting I received I set a different course while reaching into new resources I never thought I had. I stream lined my working practices and my effectiveness and impact significantly changed. I am now more serene as the pillar of my business which has enabled me to trust my collaborates and delegate many more things. The process was inspiring an my mind set shift it gave rise to has given me the drive and confidence to develop more new ventures.Tim Barkley, - Business Owner
My soul searching to find a new artistic direction was quelled as I learnt more about what made be really tick as a designer, then it happened for me and it all came together.
I originally had reservations about coaching not really knowing what it entailed, but these were quickly set aside within my first few sessions. I was struck for the first time with the many ideas that had been whirling around in my head but had been unable to really clarify and ground. As my self awareness increased so to my energy, ambition and creativity. Through the increased clarity I obtained and action steps that I followed up on, I was able to assert myself within my organisation to secure a more lucrative and enjoyable senior position.
