I’ve recently had some coaching with Alister with a focus on my professional direction. The experience was entirely positive and inspiring. His naturally encouraging, warm and informed approach quickly led to a powerful working partnership. He intuitively asks challenging (but supportive) and powerful questions that really helped me to reflect, review and move forwards with my thinking. If you are looking for a genuine, courageous Executive Coach with high personal integrity – I could not recommend him highly enough.

I was recommended Mindful Talents’ services by one of my colleagues and decided to give it a go to help me sort through a few issues I was facing in the workplace at the time.
From the very start of the process the whole team at Mindful Talent made me very welcome and at ease. I was assigned to work with Danny. In our first session we explored the role of coaching and how I would like to use it to benefit different areas of my business and personal life.
Working with Danny, we identified key areas for improvement which we drilled down into over several weeks working together. I found Danny very easy to work with, his style is very open and honest, often providing anecdotal evidence of similar experiences/issues he has faced. His approach is simply to ask questions and help you talk through any issues, which in turn enabled me to identify areas to work on and implement when back in my daily routine.
I would highly recommend working with Danny to anyone looking to take time out of their busy schedules to develop and improve any aspect of their life, whether business or personal. Danny will be of great assistance and through coaching provide you with a boost in the right direction.
I was recently promoted into a new demanding management role and found some initial coaching sessions very useful and wished to extend it, Alister was recommended to me. Alister immediately impressed me with his outgoing, friendly and energized personality. He was very well organized and was firm in having weekly sessions, the continuity of this approach was important for my success within the coaching partnership. Alister guided and helped me in identifying the biggest challenges in my work / role and showed me how to dismantle them into small achievable goals. I found the experience amazing when all the problems just disappeared!
Alister is very adaptable to different challenges and people. I would recommend him 100% as a coach.
