Only I can change my life, no one can do it for me.
Following my Master's Degree, which was in Professional Development, I began to mentor for my local university where I studied. Initially, I wanted to contribute and encourage others to overcome any academic difficulties that they may have, however, it soon progressed far beyond that, as most of the students in need of mentoring, were actually in need of life coaching.
I have taken great pleasure in the achievements of the students who I have mentored, but I also found that the learning was a two way street, as this was a continuation of my own personal development and education.
Moving on from Mentoring, the transition in to general life coaching was blurred as the boundaries had merged. As time went by, I found myself increasingly being asked to coach people in all walks of life, both personal and professional.
Over the years, I have had experience in coaching people through education, career crisis, entrepreneurship, financial hardship, relationship issues, divorce and much more.
It is with this in mind that I am not only academically qualified, but also experientially, not just conceptually, therefore, no matter what the reasons that you may be considering life coaching, I am more than qualified to help you identify any issues, quantify them and prioritise them, so that you will be able to begin taking your first decisive steps in pursuit of your own goals.
I highly recommend Antony’s coaching skills. During our work together he has helped me develop my awareness by searching for reasons to my behaviour or specific ways of thinking.
With helpful exercises Antony showed me how to find my values and how to live those values both professionally and personally in areas I was struggling with before.
The questions he asks have helped me clear my head and gain insight for my future.
Antony was my coach for a couple of months. It was a time in my life when I had to make some big decisions. The coaching sessions with Antony were very helpful for me because they gave me a new perspective on things.
It was also a good way to just stop and reflect – my past, who I am and where I want to be. I think the coaching gave me peace of mind and after the sessions I began to feel better about myself and able to set clear tasks in order to achieve my goals.
I chose to have coaching sessions to improve my working life. I had already had a lot of counselling sessions which helped me in a lot of aspects but never gave me the best improvement.
I had a first call with Antony and had a very good feeling since the beginning: he is friendly and very sincere and I immediately felt understood.
So, we scheduled some sessions and Antony helped me to find out what would be best for me.
I need to do something to change the way I was thinking, it was as though everything was there in front of me, but I just could not seem to join the dots.
After a few consultations with Antony, I was able to answer the questions that I was actually unable to even ask myself before, one by one the dots joined up and I found a new way to go forward with my life. This was a major step for me, as I am now aware of exactly what I'm capable of.
