Coaching for me was new, different, challenging, cathartic, helpful - all sorts of things. You quickly established a rapport and I trusted you - that's a big deal for me. Your thought provoking questions really challenged me . But you didn't allow me to deflect - rather you persisted and helped me to work through a fog of history and events. I found it helpful to articulate my thoughts, so that I could rationalise in a logical way (How do I know what I think until I hear what I say). Working with you afforded me the time and space to focus on myself and then identify what I need to function at my best.
