Some of the comments received by clients following coaching sessions and after completing coaching programmes

EMOTIONMIND DYNAMIC PROGRAMME 

"EmotionMind Dynamic helped me to manage my low mood days more effectively. Gave me confidence to challenge myself in stressful situations. Helped me to speak more openly about how I'm feeling to my wife. Gave me a more optimistic outlook rather than constant pessimism. On tough days I can now speak to my wife"

"What I enjoyed is getting a lot better. It's really hard to live day to day with this illness, in my case it is not being able to live like a human being.  My life goes on stop on bad days - I won't look after myself like washing, feeding myself, shopping, you get the gist of it. This program is well worth it. 10 out of 10"

"Filling this in on behalf of my daughter. She definitely has more confidence to stand up and set boundaries with people. If she doesn't want to go somewhere she will make her feelings known. Stuff happened that knocked her back but she fought back. As a family we are more aware of it so could support her. She can be more open with us now and talk about how she is feeling. I would do it myself if I had the money. It looked at the roots of the fruits. Instead of just what we were seeing it helped her address some roots."

"By using the knowledge and tools I learnt from the program I can see life more clearly. I have control back on my life. Life is back, colourful. The fact that Hayley had been through her own journey I felt like she had a better understanding. The fact that it wasn’t just someone talking to you, the programme asks you questions, you write things down on paper and I feel like writing something down sometimes makes it more powerful. Also the fact that you’re given things to go back to work on by the next session, think that makes a big difference because I believe that is as individuals have to make the first step and have to maintain making them steps to overcome the situation."

"I now have a better outlook on life and myself. To see everything from different perspectives. How to take control of my life and my own happiness and a lot more self confidence. I get bad days every now and then but so does everyone. They come and go pretty quickly. It is a very relaxed environment and Hayley is both like a friend and a professional which makes you feel comfortable. I loved how in depth we talked about things for a long time and just feels good to get things off your chest. Hayley also has the ability to see things from different perspectives which gives you the ability to see things from a different outlook too. The booklet and self help cards are very useful and all the tasks helped change my mindset. At the time I didn’t like reading what I had written for tasks/homework out loud to Hayley but I can now see it was all to benefit and help me."

“I found closure, peace and happiness.  I had a few setbacks after the programme and spoke with Hayley and she reminded me to use the coaching method to work through my set back.  The programme was Life changing, feeling like I was safe and able to talk through my issues and the support from Hayley was second to none. The anxiety felt prior to the meetings, but that was quickly overcome”

“I am now able to identify and challenge unhelpful/harmful thoughts and behaviours sooner; I have developed much better self awareness and emotional intelligence. I had to acknowledge difficult past experiences and work through them in order to let them go. This was very difficult but very important to my mental health long term. I would have liked more sessions to work through more issues, I found doing this with someone more effective than doing it alone. The best part was learning to identify and control my thoughts and actions and not let them control me. I have combined this with mindfulness and use it all the time”

“I am more confident, happy with the decisions I make in life and ask for what I want rather than just accepting. I found out a lot about myself, relationships with my family and friends and what was toxic to my life and how to change that. It was great sharing with an ‘outsider’ who showed no bias or disapproval of past life choices, just encouraged me to have faith in myself and believe I could change.”

“I have a new found confidence and a drive for self improvement. I enjoyed it all, going through the program I learnt a lot about myself and how I think and feel as well as how to accept my feelings for what they are and know that I am fully in control of how those feelings affect me”

COACHING SESSIONS

"Looking back now I don’t even recognise the person I was before meeting Hayley. I was broken with no hope of things getting better and began to accept that that was my life. After my first session I felt like I was in a safe place where I could talk through my emotions and finally open up with someone who would listen without judgement. I actively use her coaching method every day to help me take back control of my anxiety and she has helped me take the right steps to find out who I am. I can’t thank Hayley enough for all the tools she has given me, listening to me, helping me click the restart button on my life and most importantly she has taught me to love myself again."

"When you tell me that you feel proud of my journey I wish I could show you my insides. I wish you could feel the happiness jumping around inside me. It’s like little ping pongs balls bouncing around. I can look back now and let go a little. I can think about things but move forward. You listened when no one else has before and that listening and patience with me has changed the way I look at everything. I can’t actually put into words how much I appreciate everything you have done for me and how grateful I will forever be for the time that you have given to me."

"I would just like to thank you for everything you and this programme has done for me. I never knew I could have come this far since last year and I am now the happiest I have been in as long as I can remember! This programme has given me the tools to be able to overcome problems and issues I didn’t know how and made me able to view things in a different more positive perspective. My anxiety and depression has rapidly decreased since starting the programme and my self esteem has rocketed! So if just like to say again a massive thank you to you"

"When I first went on this course I didn't really think it would change much, if anything. As the weeks went on I found myself questioning different things in ways I never had. I was on the verge of cancelling my very first holiday, as the stress and anxiety had built up to such a level I really didn't think I could cope. But after each session I was starting to see differences, some small, some not so small. In the way I was dealing with things and life in general, I believe this course has given me new ways of dealing with stress and anxiety. It has also made me feel more confident in the decisions I do actually make.  I also believe that if it were not for Hayley and this course I would never have known what a normal family holiday would have felt like, and I never would have had the most amazing time!!

I am now looking forward to and planning the next. This course hasn't given me the answers to everything but has taught me ways of dealing with situations in a more positive aspect, but mainly it has taught me how to start changing my negative attitude to all change.  I wouldn't say I look forward to change now, I still find things difficult sometimes, but now, I am no longer scared.  I would just like to say thank you Hayley for helping me achieve something i never ever thought possible, there is light at the end of the tunnel"

"Hayley and the recent work she has done with the Mothers living in the community of Morfa has been nothing short of inspiring. She engaged them fully in each session, tackling many difficult and emotive subjects week on week. Her manner and delivery pushes people to think on a deeper level without being judgemental, allowing them to re-assess and importantly re-focus on what is important.
The difference we have seen in the group that completed the course has also been highly complimentary of the work Hayley has done with them. We have seen noticeable differences in the ability of one of the mothers to cope with her current relationship breakdown, another has gone on to further education and all have feedback positive changes in regards to the relationships they have with their children.
We hope to work again with Hayley in the future but in the mean time wish her all the best in her work." 

"I met Hayley a few years ago, but little did I know how instrumental she would be in shaping my future. I thought I had pretty much dealt with the things that were holding me back in my professional life and personal life & during one of our sessions we had touched on if fear was holding me back. I felt that no, it wasn’t. A few months later I was in a very dark place on a personal level and booked in to see Hayley. After suffering with anxiety for four years I was feeling at my lowest after a sequence of personal issues.

We worked through Hayley’s course & with her help we uncovered that I was living constantly in grief and that my coping mechanisms were covering over 70 major traumatic events in my life. I had no previous understanding that these were holding me back and shaping how I lived. The course gave me the final piece of the puzzle to help rebuild my life the way I wanted, to take control of my thoughts and move on emotionally. The course has armed me with strategies to future-proof my life and design it the way I want. I’ve learnt I’m allowed to be me and embrace that. So thank you Hayley for truly releasing me from a prison I didn’t even know was there! Truly thank you so much, you’ve unlocked so much" 

"Thank you so much for speaking at both our campaign days. The service users have made loads of wonderful comments about your talk and how much they could relate to your story. A lot of service users really enjoyed the aspect of using visual representation (jars) to express their emotions and commented that they found doing the jar activity a lot easier than to talk openly about how they were feeling.... once again thank you so much "

"Thank you for all your faith, support and encouragement you have put in me over the last few months. My house has a mammy my children deserve... I am so glad I opened up to you or my fog would never have been lifted. I've enjoyed seeing myself change week by week, and get stronger. I'm beginning to understand myself more which was hard at first. The difference in me is amazing.
Thank you, you've changed my life forever."
