A Great Team Coach

I was introduced to Patricia by a colleague, as someone who could help me to build and maintain the spirits of my high-performing sales team, while working remotely & navigating the uncertainties and challenges of a pandemic, associated Lockdown.

Her huge life experience & positive mindset, created an environment of honesty and trust that enabled Patricia to focus on getting the group to open up, so that we could address a lot of individual challenges, goals, worldviews, etc.

 She knows the right questions to ask in order to move the group forward and when to pause and teach or re-frame something so that everyone understands. She was able to seamlessly transition from coaching the team to coaching individually & brought our team closer together, through creating a culture of inclusion thinking and affinity distancing.

Her mindfulness exercises and ABC philosophy are something that I personally will carry with me and practice regularly.

Book – Resilience and Courage: The Key to Endurance

A beautiful soul who shone from within when passionately talking about her 7 Attributes for Success. Some years ago there I was sat in a room filled with people, yet I felt the only one in the audience. Pat’s engaging and friendly style using visualisation and humour connected directly with everyone as she inspired and motivated us all to practically improve and encourage ourselves as individuals. Pat’s honesty and willingness to share her own fallibility resonated with us all, and really did lead to a superbly powerful message. Her current book delivers a toolkit for success, offering reflective stories, activities and more. It is essential for everyone in their journey toward achieving positive mental health. Promoting action for a positive lifestyle and strategies for improved overall wellbeing. Danielle McGregor

Thank you Pat, as a frontline worker, I have been focused on the job at hand and everyone else. Today I collected my Mum’s dog, left my phone at home and went for a walk. This is my third day off. The first two days were days of readjustment and sleep. I now see the importance of self-care on a daily basis. I will be putting a slot in my diary daily from now on. Just what I needed to hear after a long week on being on call 24/7. I need to re-charge, re-energise and re-motivate. Thank you Pat. Debbie W. (May – Jul 2020)

Thanks again for this live video. Letting go of difficult thoughts, things or situations that we have no control over, frees our mind to live in the hope of the present and to look forward witih confidence. David K. (May 2020)

Thanks Patricia…..that was really helpful. I find the ABC technique works for me in any situation where I want to ground myself and balance my nerves X.  Barbara McG (Sep 2020)
