    Client Testimonials


    "David has helped me in so many areas of my life over the past few months. Since I met David, I have been accepted onto and started a training programme I have wanted to do for a long time, I am transitioning to a new job with a shorter working week to make time for other interests and creative endeavours, I have transformed my morning routine, I have implemented positive boundaries and let go of unhelpful habits, and I have made positive changes to my mindset. David has also helped me to navigate these recent changes in a very supportive, encouraging, and positive manner. I am so grateful to have met David. I have been raving about him to family, friends and colleagues and I would highly recommend David as a coach."


    Ellen, Senior Lawyer


    Working with David has allowed me to push both my personal and professional development much further and faster than simply “going it alone”. I believe anybody keen to improve any aspect of their life should have a life coach. I would highly recommend David, and have already referred a number of friends and colleagues.”


    Karl, Aviation Finance sector


    "When I first booked an appointment with David (Write Your Story NLP) I was feeling anxious and very nervous as I did not know what was ahead for me. I wanted to make changes in my life and to start living it. From the moment I met David I felt more relaxed. The techniques have helped me change my life in so many ways, personally and professionally. Every session helps me build confidence in myself and build the courage to do things I thought I could never do.


    David has showed me that I, and everybody else, have the answers within us for what we want to do. Working with David has allowed me to start living my life and communicate with people the way I want to. The theory and techniques you learn with David are mind blowing, they will not just change you but the people around you.


    If you want to change how you feel and how you live your life then look no further than David. I highly recommend him and have recommended many people to him. It is thanks to him that I have started living my life the way I am now and I am ever so grateful."


    Gary Mc Cormack, Business Owner, GMC


    "I had just became a daddy when my childhood experiences arose, which sent me into auto-pilot mode. I was doubting myself every day. I starting drinking and abusing drugs on the weekends to get away from it all, which only made things worse.


    My relationship ended and it was then I admitted to myself that I needed help.


    I contacted David which was the best decision I have ever made.


    I couldn’t recommend him enough as he has helped me to become a version of myself that myself, my friends and family could not be any prouder of."   


    Eoghan McNally


    "I brought my son to see David following a series of life events including bereavement, illness and separation in our family. Although we talked openly at home about feelings and events, I was concerned that my son was not thriving at school and his teachers reported him as being unhappy and not his usual self. Rather than taking a wait and see approach at home, I brought him to see David and I am so glad that I did.


    From the first session, David created a safe space where my son felt comfortable expressing how he was feeling and the frustration he was experiencing etc. Some of it was typical teenage behaviour but also my son found it easier to speak openly about the family dynamics and changes in his life.


    David has an amazing ability to get to the core of issues through careful use of language and the rapport he has with his clients. He has been instrumental in getting my son ‘back on track’ and helping him develop a growth mindset. He has developed skills for life under David’s guidance and realises that he always has a choice in situations. His teachers have reported that he’s much happier and focused this year at school and I find communication with him less confrontational as he is more willing to discuss and name his feelings.


    David is an excellent coach - very professional, skilled and gifted. I would highly recommend him for working with all age groups. My son says that David has helped him to ‘see both sides of the story and uses great analogies’. He also praises him highly which speaks volumes for me!"
