“I would highly recommend Ian to anyone. Ian exhibited that he could be trusted by emphasising confidentiality was paramount and what was said in the room stayed in the room. From the outset Ian was warm, approachable and encouraging and I could see he was invested in my success.
Ian displayed empathy and concern; he had the ability to truly imagine what it was like to stand in my shoes. This in turn made me feel understood and heard. Ian noticed the subtle nuances within my voice tone and body language and his additional skills such as active listening and reflection encouraged me to share repressed thoughts, feelings and beliefs. Ian communicated understanding and acceptance of powerful emotions that were being discharged within the room and had the ability to relate with an open, non-judgemental attitude, accepting me for who I was with my situation. Ian was able to ‘start where I was at’ and patiently waited for me to open up, he was a realist who recognised the long standing and maladaptive behaviours I displayed could not be quickly unlearned and he patiently guided me in the process of self-discovery. Magnificent results which made me end procrastinating and move on with life.”
