Coach Testimonials

“Coaching showed me that I knew that I had some character flaws I wanted to deal with in order to unleash some of this innate potential I knew I had. I was fortunate enough to have had access to Yahya in professional perspective and engaged with him around the difficulties I had. He’s honesty, professionalism and calm demeanour have been one of the key take away’s from the sessions I’ve had.

He’s coaching style allows you to find the answers for yourself and he ensures that you are comfortable with the decision you have made. We have had some very pivotal break-throughs in the sessions and I’m confident that anyone who interacts with him will have a similar or much richer experience”

 

Management Consultant

 

“I had a huge disappointment in my career. Naturally I was upset, disappointed, embarrassed and doubts about myself .Yahya, as a Coach, offered to walk with me through this journey. I learned how to identify “heavy and caring emotions” which lead me to be in tune with my emotions .I remember one day after few sessions of tears and sadness he said to me there’s a smile. From that day I knew that I was recovering and regaining my confidence.

Yahya is so professional as a coach, attentive and showed empathy in all sessions. He advises me on what was coming next and gave practices that eventually helped me to reflect on my daily engagements with my colleagues, family and friends.

I am now confident, assertive and in the drivers seat of my life!”

 

Senior Manager, Global Public Utility

 

“Yahya  (Coach) helped me to manage my stress and to understand how, with subtle changes to my thoughts; I could change my perception of myself and all the things I deal with on a day-to-day basis. Yahya’s calm presence helped me to delve into my perceptions, and I continue to use the practices he taught me in my daily life. I really appreciate Yahya’s efforts with me, and I highly recommend as a Coach and hope that others take the opportunity to be coached by him if they get the chance.”

High School Teacher

 

“I was rather surprised when I was paired with the Coach (Yahya) as his coachee, I assumed that he would have no understanding of my intense, complex, high pressured world. Much to my surprise, within the space of a few hours, we had an enjoyable and stimulating conversation that took me far away from my stressful, treadmill world to a space where creativity and spontaneity were re-introduced into the narrative of my life.

Six months later…I am developing new competencies, re-igniting old strengths and starting to enjoy my work again. Yahya is an unassuming integral coach with deep insight and unrivalled expertise. He has made visible the part of me that has been lying dormant for many years. His gift in using language to communicate authentically and powerfully is special. As a professional coach, I am sure that he will touch many lives in a very poignant way. He is highly recommended!”
