Philosophical Counselling Testimonials 


"I found each session extremely stimulating. The 50 minutes just flew by on every occasion. 

My 200 mile drive was worth every mile and the time I had to take off work to attend the sessions worth every minute.


I particularly liked the way I could engage with Tim and direct the core of my feelings toward positive and useful solutions.


I also really liked the way Tim took notes and provided email feedback after each session enabling me to continue the process between meetings."

      "For the first time in two years, I was being honest with myself about what I really wanted "

Life-Coaching Testimonials  

"Thank you for helping me to get my life to where it is today.  


As you will remember, I came to you for help when I was deciding whether to opt for voluntary redundancy or not. I felt trapped in my well paid job, but deskilled and demotivated. I was sure that I didn’t have the skills to get another job, nor did I expect to find something part-time to fit around my young family. I was also scared of becoming a full-time Mum.   


You listened to all my concerns, guided me to see where my strengths lay, and helped me look across a wider spectrum of possibilities. I would never have thought I would be the person to do it, but now I have my own business (in a completely different field from my old job) and when I look back, it is exactly the strengths that you identified which have brought it together. 


I am like a new person: happy, busy, confident and fulfilled – and able to run the business around the needs of my family, which is exactly what I wanted.


Thank you again."

"Again, I want to thank you for all your help. I really feel much better and  in control.  The most helpful aspects of the sessions were the  way in which Tim helped  me to articulate the problems I had and in  particular the many issues involved in each. 


All  in all, I found the sessions very empowering. Tim gave me the chance to believe that I could do all the things I wanted to if I could look at them from a different perspective or with a different attitude. They had a very positive effect on me and increased my confidence and  self-esteem.
