Carl is fantastic. We had 6 sessions all in all, and after every session I felt invigorated, uplifted and inspired. Each session tackled a different problem, using different approaches to achieve results, and each session built on whatever came out of previous ones to form a logical progression. I can honestly say that having completed the six sessions (spaced one month apart), I now feel more confident, less anxious and more ‘powerful’ at work. Carl is a true professional, and it has been a genuine pleasure working with him.

When I was struggling with building my confidence, particularly in public speaking, but also in more general terms, I sought the help of Carl.

Together, we completed six sessions of coaching. Carl was an incredible listener, friendly, patient and used a wide range of tools and techniques (such as mindfulness, visualisation, meditation) to help me tackle a number of issues.

Carl challenges my thinking, and built me from an individual who did not feel worthy, to someone who feels empowered, lighter, more confident and comfortable in my workplace. I have put these new skills into practice, and now no longer shy away from public speaking opportunities, networking and meeting new people. Instead, I embrace these opportunities in a different, positive and playful manner.

Working with Carl should form any employees development programme; but even more than just your professional life, it will highlight your strengths, give you direction and impact on your personal life.

If you're looking to change your career but are stuck, then definitely talk to Carl. He'll not only act as a coach but he'll be your personal cheerleader when things get challenging. It doesn't matter which industry you work in, or want to move to, Carl offers tried and tested methods with his own engaging style. Ultimately Carl's a good guy to have on your side.

I have recently changed jobs, and my new role has felt a little daunting at times. Carl’s coaching has helped my self confidence enormously, and helped me to be more focused, driven and organised, as well as helping me in my home life too. Anonymous

At a crossroads in life and my business, I was given the opportunity to speak with Carl. After a short chat, Carl took me though a guided meditation to 'meet' with my future self. This really was almost like a vision of the future. I had a feeling of complete calm and euphoria throughout (and so want to hang on to that feeling that I suggest Carl puts together some cd's.) When people speak of their 'higher self', I admit to feeling slightly sceptical. In reality I think your higher self is that little voice of reason you rarely listen to which genuinely guides you to making the right decision. I truly hope I will have the chance to work with Carl again and hope you do too.

Carl really helped me work on getting clear and focused about what I want to do, what I am good at and what I would feel great doing on a day to day basis – and now I'm doing it!

Now the week seems enticing, even on a Sunday night because I love the work I am doing and the people I work with. Carl's authentic approach, emphasis on the fully creative aspects of personal decision making as well as the hard practical side of things and his ability to spot what is really true for someone makes him a great choice as a coach, trainer and consultant in his field.

I had a phone consultation with Carl when my work situation was at an all time low one month ago.

Although I had already made steps for a career change, nothing seemed to be going right for me and some days it was really hard to still believe in positivity and that things could or would change when surrounded by so much negativity. Carl gave me some simple but amazing tools on how to overcome this through the use of both affirmations and meditations.

On really bad days when I was at the point of thinking I would both lose my house and my job, along with my possible sanity, I would repeat the affirmations and practice the meditations which kept me holding on in there just enough to get me through when along came the answer to my prayers and manifestations – my dream job, which without the tools Carl gave me to carry through, I don't think I would have had the confidence to have performed so well at interview at such a bad period in my life.

I actually cannot believe how quickly this life change has come about and know that positivity, manifestation as well as Carl's advice played a huge part in keeping me going along the way. Just wanted to say thanks again and how much it really helped, the coaching came at the perfect time when things were on such a low for me. Thank you!

I have known Carl for almost a year and he has worked with me through a variety of mediums including telephone, Skype and a teleseminar, which demonstrates a really flexible working style. We have focused on using NLP to help me prioritise and formulate my goals for developing my career path as a freelance designer. This has led to increased sales of my designs and being able to really focus on fulfilling work that is right for me. He has helped me to overcome my negative and destructive thoughts and replace them with a more positive outlook. I feel that due to our sessions, I have developed my self-awareness and enhanced my self-esteem. I would really recommend him as a Life Balance Coach.

I had my first session with Carl a week ago. We focused mainly on NLP as this is the area I am currently interested in. I feel clearer and more driven about my business goals for this year. Carl has a great way of helping me to become aware of the negative "holding back" fears I experience and focusing on the strengths I have. I have found the positive effects of a session with Carl surprisingly fast and effective and I look forward to working more with him on pushing forward with my business.

Over the last year and half, I have depended on Carl as a coach to work alongside me as I transitioned from one professional venture to another. Carl is insightful and focused. He uses his and as a result my time wisely to get me to focus and create forward motion in my agenda both in my professional and personal life. It is with great confidence that I recommend Carl to those that want to achieve powerful change in their lives. Carl, Thank you. 

KMC, Image Consultant, Toronto, Canada

I highly recommend Carl's coaching. In a short space of time, he helped me to focus my mind and my ideas so that I could see where I was and where I needed to be. His calm, patient and expert skill, combined with a good understanding of industry, gave me the perfect combination I needed to get my business on track. Setting up a small business isn't easy, but with Carl's help, I didn't feel alone and had someone to help me stay disciplined and achieve my goals. Since working together, the income from the project has doubled – which is why I came back for more! Thanks Carl.

As Mr Rodrigues’ mentor during his long qualification as a Coach, I am delighted to provide a reference. I have both mentored Mr Rodrigues and met him personally on business matters and at all times I have been impressed by his professionalism, people-skills and incisive thought processes. He has a rare ability to build rapport quickly and his authenticity shines through in everything he does. Mr Rodrigues was one of the best coaches I ever worked with; and he will bring enormous value to any client or role that he undertakes. If I can be of any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact me.

Having Carl coach me has been amazing. He is supportive, encouraging and very skilled in listening and using magic questions which have enabled me to dig deep into myself and look at the problem from unexpected and surprising angles, and which have developed my self-awareness effectively. Working with him on what I thought were my tricky problems enabled me to discover some very effective solutions that moved me on. Thank you Carl – you’re a super star.

Prior to working with Carl I could not fully appreciate how closely tied my personal values were to my work/business life. Now having worked closely with Carl for over 7 months, I have learnt to be more compassionate towards myself and more able to lead a balanced life. I highly recommend Carl as a coach, he is extremely insightful and wise and you will have breakthroughs that you didn't even think possible!

Johanna Lueders, Director, Principal Plans Ltd

I found working with Carl to be very different from other coaches. Whilst practical and professional, he is also wonderfully gentle and spiritual. He managed to get me thinking about my situation in very deep and meaningful ways that I hadn't experienced before. When I work with him I feel like I am truly working from the inside out. I recommend working with Carl to get a true understanding of your deeper self, which in turn lets you tackle your problems in a more authentic and useful way.
