Peter accessed Lancashire Mind's Wellbeing Coach service at his workplace:
"Before I began working with my Wellbeing Coach I could be described as being in quite a dark place really."
"I felt anxious, stressed and depressed – particularly at work where I'd been forced into a role that I'm not qualified for and felt uncomfortable undertaking, which was the single greatest cause of stress to me."
"I'd changed my career when I was 40 and had at that point chosen the career path that I wanted, rather than settling for something that just paid the bills. I'd been happy in that new role for a number of years until a restructure brought about a change in role. I felt like a square peg in a round hole."
"The coaching sessions enabled me to identify achievable goals that would help me to understand why I was feeling like this, how to recognise the signs and how to deal with them both in the moment and in the future."
"In working through a tailored systematic approach to achieve my goals I've benefitted enormously. I now feel so much more relaxed and in control and have the tools at my disposal to recognise the signs when a stressful situation might develop, and diffuse it."
"I always felt that your coaching was individually designed to meet my personal needs rather than being from a set script. I found that, as with all good mentors and coaches, you had a real empathy with me and my situation. I've benefitted immensely from what I’ve learnt from you throughout our sessions together."
"I’m now a much happier person, in control of the situation and with the tools at my disposal to deal with any issue that might cross my path."
"I have no hesitation in recommending you as a coach to others, both from within the work environment and beyond. The help you've given me has been invaluable."
