  9. 9. “ Having struggled with depression and low self-esteem for many years now I realised that I needed to begin making key changes in my life if I ever wanted to see things improve. I began coaching sessions and cannot stress enough how crucial it has been in helping me move forward. Through discussion and analysis I began to re-evaluate my thoughts and actions I was able to pin point my negative behaviour and their sources and was able to break these suffocating patterns. The sessions allowed me to become more objective and to put things into perspective giving me the clarity and confidence I need in order to make my life move forward.“ 1-2-1 Coaching client “ Somewhere along the way, I began to focus on the things I am not good at and forgot to about all the things I can actually do.  The Kick Start programme is helping me to challenge defeatist thinking and provide me with the support I need to start moving forward again- so that I can take on new challenges”. Kick Start Client “ The service was completely tailored to my needs and was very interactive. I completed physical and written exercises which helped me to understand how I viewed myself and how these distorted views  were holding me back from achieving my potential. I learnt how I could challenge these self-limiting beliefs and replace them with new positive ones.“ 1-2-1 Coaching Client
