Feedback from recent workshop participants and coaching clients:
I attended The Art Of Facilitation Programme and loved it all. It was immensely helpful to me. I learned many new approaches to working with individuals and groups. Most of all though, I experienced Pat’s amazing facilitation and that of the other colleagues who were with us. I was spellbound throughout and I take away Pat’s parting shot as a great gift.
The Art Of Facilitation Delivers Massive Impact. Trust the process, Trust Pat, Trust myself!
Pat is an excellent coach who is extremely engaging and personable, and provides an interested and interesting style of working. I found this approach to our meetings to be an extremely helpful and supportive way of enabling a really creative atmosphere in which to do some important work.

The coaching sessions greatly assisted me in carrying on surviving this difficult working environment over a period of time so that I could gradually recover and meet my objectives. Overall, I made good progress and have continued to do so, with the calm and compassionate support of the coaching as a backdrop that helped facilitate my current progress.

Pat’s professional knowledge and understanding of the work place and organisational management is excellent, enabling objective and practical advice to be given. This undoubtedly helped me in the decisions I have subsequently made regarding short term and long term goals. The bespoke sessions were tailored according to my needs at the time including specific management and time management strategies as well as helping me to consider personal issues when and where appropriate. The sessions were very flexible with specific objectives set to work on until the next meeting. I can highly recommend working with Pat

Pat’s sessions were structured to suit my professional development. Through coaching, I’ve learnt how to communicate with team members with different personality styles, and how to use techniques that encourage assertiveness, My confidence is developing and this coaching has significantly improved my view of leadership and I now have clarity in terms of future career development.

I just wanted to say thanks so much for today’s session. I am not kidding when I say how beneficial these sessions have been for me. Each time I go away with so much more to think about, ponder over and apply.

Coaching has been really useful both personally and professionally. It has made me reflect on why I respond in certain ways and has, I hope, made me a more effective leader. It gave me ‘permission’ to behave in certain ways and has also been affirming, particularly regarding my interpersonal skills.
Pat has a wonderfully open and receptive approach to coaching, which invites openness of oneself. I found this was extremely helpful in opening up to him and then being able to explore the challenges which I raised. I was surprised that he gave feedback to me about my leadership from time to time, as this is a very different approach to counselling, for instance. But this was some of the most useful and affirming aspects of the coaching. Overall, my experience of coaching with Pat was extremely helpful, both personally and professionally.
