I came across Paul after reaching a point in my life where I realised I was in a rut that despite my all best efforts I couldn’t get myself out of. As a confident person I was in an unfamiliar place that was filled with self doubt, anxiety and pessimism, feelings that whilst no strangers to me had become all consuming. I recognised the ‘symptoms’ but they had taken over and overwhelmed me to the point of being debilitating. I knew what I wanted, to find someone special and have a loving relationship as well as being in a job I was motivated in, but I felt that a number of external circumstances where hindering those dreams. Paul helped me to realise that the factors I perceived to be minor were in fact the main culprits – old feelings and perceptions from the past. Paul helped me to make sense of the past to understand the present, which enabled me to visualise my future and believe all my dreams were possible. Self doubt, anxiety and pessimism are now friends rather than foes as I own them rather than them owning me. I’m living life more happily, fearlessly and authentically and I’ve met an amazing man after Paul helped me to have the best and most important relationship of all – one with myself.
