Managing Director, Space Modular
Open your eyes, check emails on phone. Jump in shower, grab a coffee and out the door before your family has even woken. A full day absorbed in work…stressing and worrying everything will be okay before heading home to find your kids in their pyjamas and ready for bed. Put the kids to bed only for you to spend the rest of your evening checking your emails and catching up on any social media before doing it all again… does this sound familiar?
I would have been one of the last people you would expect to need help or guidance of this type. I consider myself to be a typical ‘happy go lucky’ typical ‘lads lad’, however when the pressures of business accompanied with my father’s bereavement came together, I found myself struggling and I became a fraction of the person I used to be.
It’s easy to mask with a smile as you still have to be the same person your colleagues and peers look to for guidance and who your friends and family turn to for fun and laughter, but the reality was I was depressed, I was lost, I’d lost my sense of purpose. Depression is a horrible state to be in, nobody wants to believe or admit they are suffering, but in reality, it affects so many of us.
Firstly, Claire is very easy to talk to and from my initial session with Claire, she listened and supported me in putting things into perspective, with no judgment. Claire helped me to identify the strengths and weak areas of my life and shared techniques with me to see how I could improve as a person. By learning to connect with myself again through meditation, ‘being present’ with myself, NLP and coaching allowed me to regain clarity and focus in my life. Setting goals and challenges to push me to achieve my targets.
Claire makes you realise how important you are and that you need to make time for yourself and appreciate the things around you, things which are right in front of your eyes.
After a couple of sessions, I honestly cannot tell you how great I felt, something had changed in me…. I have a spring in my step and feel like I could conquer any challenge and feel motivated & revitalised which has been noticed by my colleagues, friends and family.
To put simply…this is one of the best things I have ever experienced and I would highly recommend Claire’s programmes to anyone. Claire, I can’t thank you enough.
