Some client feedback:
I am a different person thanks to the work Al and I did togther, and I am very indebted to him for all his help and support. I could not recommend his services highly enough.
After my life coaching sessions with Alan I very quickly found a new job in a career I had wanted to pursue, I am extremely happy now and know that counselling and life coaching combined has helped me immensely.
Having never had counselling before, I’ve learnt so much about myself and feel a better person for it. New goals, new look on life, a new direction.
Thank you so much Alan
