Exploring and experimentation
It can be tough to decide to live differently from mainstream society. Part of this is the pressure of society to conform in a certain...
Mainstream life. Our culture and society define a very narrow path that we should live. We get a job, get married, buy a car and house, and then the corner office before retiring.
But a surprising amount of us don't fit into this limited, narrow path. And we often think there is something wrong with ourselves. But there is nothing wrong with us.
We just received the wrong messages from our culture and society, messages that clash with our core values.
This can be a hard realisation, and we try and ignore the realisation. It is even harder to want to do something about it. This is normal as it can take a lot of courage to find and live our authentic life.
From one narrow pathway of mainstream life, we now have the choice of infinite possibilities. How do we find the right one for us?

Until I met Phil, I used to be very skeptical about coaching. To me, it sounded like someone giving you a motivational talk to boost your will-power and magically obtain inimaginable results. I couldn’t be more mistaken - even though there might be some of these coaches out there, Phil helped me understand that coaching is about providing people with tools to achieve their goals and, most importantly, understand and identify these goals.
Using the Wheel of Life method, I was able to go through a deep reflection about my priorities and identity in a pivotal moment in my life. I have been going to therapy for about 10 years, so I am not new to self reflection, but the special thing about this session is that it provided me with a roadmap for the next months of my life. It isn’t just about understanding who you are, but also about taking action towards who you want to become.
Phil also helped me see that coaching is a skill that I can learn and apply in my career to become a better leader. I am sure that anyone can benefit from learning these lessons, but the fact that Phil is such an empathetic and kind hearted person makes him not only effective but also exceptional at what he does.

When Phil and myself started our coaching sessions, I remember I was expecting only to be working on some insecurities I had. I was very soon surprised then, how the mindset coaching helped me in many other ways as well.
Over the course of our sessions, I learned to be more focused and confident in my day to day life. Also, Phil helped me change my perspective on trust towards other people, which was amazing for my personal life.
I have found myself enjoying my work life even more, and I can now better handle situations in the past that have been difficult for me.
Our coaching sessions were always very trustworthy and focused. I am impressed by Phil's broad methodological knowledge and how carefully he chooses the right tool for each of our sessions. After every session, I was impressed with how much I learned about myself by applying the tools and coaching we used.
I am more than grateful to Phil because he supported me in making big steps forward in my life and my personal career development.
I was coached by Phil over between 2018 through to 2020.
Phil provided expert analysis and guidance on a number of professional and personal issues. He is an incredibly sensitive professional who encourages you to step into your own power and positively transform what is holding you back. He understands organisational psychology and how different personality types may respond to certain professional dynamics. He taught me a considerable amount about setting boundaries, self confidence when communicating with leadership, goal setting and importantly how to actually reach them. My work processes and overall outlook was positively influenced by my work with Phil.
I would call on Phil in a heartbeat and highly recommend him to any individual or organisation.
