    Mark came to see me in Oct 23 following a health issue and subsequent medical procedure.

    Hi Russell
    Just a message to thank you for your help during a recent tough time in my life.
    I had 6 hourly meetings with you over a 7month period. I felt comfortable talking and listening to you . I found you very professional and understanding.
    My anxiety has improved so much and one of the hardest things was walking through your office door for the first time, I didn't know what to expect . We chatted we laughed and put the world to rights but more importantly you were fantastic in my hour of need.
    If I hear of anybody in a similar situation to me then I won't hesitate to recommend them to you.
    Kind Regards

    I wasn't sure what to expect from therapy but my sessions have been invaluable. Russell has made me feel completely at ease discussing anything that was on my mind. I was able to let my guard down and talk about emotions and memories that I have never been able to speak to anybody else about, which has been a huge relief and helped me to move on.

    Russells patience, understanding and guidance has enabled me to be more assertive, confident and to make positive changes. Russell has also helped me not just with my mental health but supported me in getting help with medical issues.

    My sessions have been worth every penny and I would definitely recommend Russell.
    I am very happy to know he is still there if I need help in the future.
    Thank you!

    I wasn't sure what a 'Life Coach' did when I first went to see Russell. But I knew I needed help, and having read his website, I saw that there were elements of hope I could investigate. Turned out to be the best thing I ever did. You see Russell treats you as a person, an individual, someone who needs a bespoke course not 'one size fits all'. So we sat and talked about my history, my background, the traumas I've lived through, and he showed me exercises that calmed me down, coping skills to help me get through, and lessons that made me understand that my life's not over yet. I went to see him with the weight of the world on my shoulders and (literally) bent double with my eyes to the floor for fear of making eye contact with strangers in the street. Six sessions later I feel like I'm a completely different person. Instead of facing the world like an old man with (many) issues, I'm making plans for new adventures, appreciating the good things in my life and making new memories to add to the list of good times I'd blotted out. So yes, I think I know what a genuine Life Coach does now, and I'd most definitely recommend Russell for all the right reasons. This Christmas (next week) will be the first Christmas I've actually looked forward to in over a decade. And 2024 promises to be the happiest time of my life. Here's to all the positive times ahead 👍

    Andrew came to see me in January 2023

    When I first came to Russell I was suffering from a lot of deep anxiety and was locked in a continuous cycle of negative thoughts.
    It seemed to me at the time, that there was no way out.
    Gradually, through talking through my problems with Russell over several months, and employing the exercises and thought techniques he taught me,

    I was able to challenge and unpick many difficult problems, some of them many years old, and get to a stage where I could finally move forward and change my life for the better.

    Throughout the sessions Russell was patient and kind and I felt comfortable talking to him about the difficulties that I was facing.
    I now find myself in a situation where I am able to look to the future with a sense of possibility and excitement rather than one of fear and dread.

    Following the sudden passing of my husband of 47 years during the Covid pandemic, i found myself in a very dark and lonely place, despite having my adult children around me. It was often difficult to talk openly and honestly about the devastating grief that overwhelmed my whole being. I was shocked then angry that he was taken from me, blaming the hospital discharging him so early despite him suffering from COPD.

    I felt pressured to put on a brave face and this drained every cell in my body. I didn't want to live but couldn't take my own life as I wouldn't be with my husband in the afterlife.

    My supportive family and myself recognised that I needed professional help so I spoke with my GP who helped me see the need and directed me towards Russell. However I was initially sceptical that counselling would help but I had nothing to lose.

    Today looking back I'm so glad that I made the call and met with Russell who put me at ease immediately giving me the space I needed in order to talk, be heard and to cry. I found I was able to listen to words if guidance from Russell in order to understand my feelings and to learn that it's ok not to be ok.

    My sessions have been invaluable as he is a caring and professional man with a genuine desire to help.

    My journey of grief continues but I'm so grateful to Russell for his guidance in my darkest days and I would not hesitate to call upon him again if and when I need extra support

    Russell has helped me through divorce, bereavement, health issues and moving house twice, all in the last few years. He is friendly, approachable and down to earth and has experience of life which gives him an open-minded view of the world. He gave me skills to deal with a situation then, and in the future, and also, at times, a reality check! I really felt he cares about the well-being of his clients. Some of my problems occurred during lockdowns and Russell made sure communication was maintained when I was going through a very difficult time in my life and, with all the restrictions that everyone had at that time.

    I would highly recommend choosing Russell for a therapist. For me, he helped sort out the major life changes I had plus deal with the everyday smaller things and see how sometimes I gave them too much importance.

    I finished therapy with Russell a few months ago and I have found I have been able to do things I wouldn’t have had the confidence to do before and have been able to let things I used to worry too much about get put in perspective so I have long lasting gains.

    Thanks Russell for the time, energy and patience you put in and best wishes!

    Thank you to Russell for helping me through everything! You are amazing at what you do and have really opened my eyes to lots of reason as to why I contacted you in the first place, things I didn’t even realise was possible. I’m really sad to have ended our session however I am so happy at the person I’ve become since meeting you!

    Thank you once again Russell

    Thank you so much Russell for providing me with advice and fantastic audio's for my son. He particularly likes the "baloon ride" especially before bed, this helps him to relax and get a restful night sleep. His worries and anxieties are alot more managable, we have all seen positive results as a family. Thank you again

    Hi Russell

    I don’t think there are any words that can truly do justice how much coming to see you has changed my life.

    In 6 months I have transformed all manner of aspects of my life and a big part is down to your help.

    You’re advice and personality is personable, practical and you are very easy to connect with.

    Thank you so much for all you’ve done for me.

    Hi Russell Thank you so much for all the help and support that you have given me over the last eighteen months. At our first session I was going through an extremely stressful time and was consumed by debilitating anxiety. It was very frightening and I couldn’t see how I would ever recover and be myself again. My daughter contacted you initially on my behalf and I am so grateful that she encouraged me to take that first step. Our sessions have been invaluable and I have always felt relaxed and at ease. You have taught me techniques and strategies which I return to every day and your audios have been so helpful. So thank you for listening, for all your support and guidance and for your flexible approach. It has been so helpful to know that I could call you if I needed to. I know that I am now in a far better place mentally than when we first met and I would recommend you to anyone needing help at a difficult time. So thank you.
