The method

 

Individual consultancy provides a focused, personal, positive and confidential service to help people with these issues. They think through their own needs and situation and come to their own conclusions. Most people feel more comfortable with one person than a group. It is also easier to meet specific needs. I create a supportive and trusting atmosphere that enables people to express their thoughts and feelings openly.

 

Sometimes people have referred themselves for this service. In others, an organisation has referred a person when, for example, someone has identified a block to the person's progress. The response of clients and their managers has been positive. Clients report that they are more relaxed, more energetic, the original issue is fixed and that working with other people in the organisation is easier. Their managers find them more constructive too.

 

A quotation from a client

 

“Nick's approach of holding the mirror so you can reflect on your challenges with firm but gentle prompting from a lifetime's experience of engineering and delivering change has meant that we have worked well together for 10 years. I regard him as a friend and father confessor. I am always energised and uplifted by our sessions. His unique approach as coach, guide and consultant suits me well”
