“After a great coaching session with Trevor, I have so much more clarity! It’s great to have someone else ask you powerful and insightful questions to help you get your brain unstuck when it goes into a bit of overwhelm…”
~ N Hulls, Adelaide

“Trevor has supported me through a really changing time. I used to put too much emphasis on areas of my life where I was failing. Trevor has helped me to see that there are many other facets of life where I have experienced and continue to experience success. In this way Trevor has helped with my self esteem and enhanced the positive attributes to my life by shifting my focus from the negative.”
~ C McSporran, Croydon, Victoria, Australia

“Thank you Trevor! You were really great how you stayed with me; it’s something I need and it feels really big, from your one big comment about [omitted for privacy]. That, to me, is calling it as it is, and that’s really good coaching…”
~ A. Norton, Adelaide


“Before speaking with Trevor I felt very confused about some issues I am facing. He is able to locate a time in my life where I didn’t feel this way and help me uncover the decisions I went through that may have assisted me to feel these negative beliefs. This has been a powerful process of not only remembering the times when I felt free of certain negative ideas but also in assisting to shift my current perspectives. I can now say that I feel more liberated around my own beliefs and that I am changing each day to confront the things that hold me back. Slow and steady wins the race.”
~ W. Huston, Perth

“Trevor demonstrated a keen interest towards improving my situation….This resulted in my looking forward to each session. Altogether it has been an amazingly positive experience!”
~ J. Kendall, Nerang

“I was surprised to find that life coaching with Trevor certainly does not stay at a superficial level. The courage Trevor shows to dive deep into the issues one is facing is remarkable. Trevor is present and with you every step of the way. He gives a space that allows freedom to explore why you may be struggling with certain things in your life.”
~ B. Sibley, Gold Coast

“Trevor really cares about you and you can hear in his voice that he is genuine and authentic.. He has a great energy and sense of purpose in his role and genuinely gives everything he has to help you improve your life. He has faith and optimism and give you tools to help you overcome difficulties. He has genuine understanding about what you are going through with out judgment. He is generous with his time and effort and you feel that he wants you to succeed and overcome your barriers to success.”
~ J Phillips, Christchurch, NZ

CRITICISM DEFINED

If you read on you will learn 17 ways on how to deal with
criticism to help build a healthy relationship.

The main problem with criticism is that it can pave the way for the negative attitude called contempt.

Ten facts about LONELINESS:

Loneliness does not depend on how many friends or relationships you have.

Loneliness depends entirely on the subjective quality of your relationships—on whether you feel emotionally and/or socially disconnected from those around you.  That is why…

More than 60% of lonely people are married.

When married couples no longer share their deepest feelings, thoughts, and experiences with one another it can leave them feeling disconnected and alone.  People in such relationships truly believe their spouse cannot offer them the deep connection they would like. While their fears might be correct, they might also stem from the fact that…

One way to prevent an argument from escalating…

When I was younger I had a huge ego and differences of opinion with loved ones (funny it’s always with the ones we love, and not our mates?) used to make me defensive, and an argument would ensue, sometimes escalating into ugliness.

Well, I now know better, but it took me a long time.

During a coaching session one day this man, we’ll call him Steve, was telling me about a very similar issue that he was having with his partner.  He told me that he could always tell when he was getting irate when he felt his face would get hot and he felt his chest getting tense.

Long story short, I asked him how he felt after an argument had escalated.  He said he felt like s**t. Read More→

What To Do If You Are Bullied

By · Comments (0)

More than 1 in 5 youth between the ages of 12 and 18 are bullied at school.

This bullying is often extended into the area of social media.

There is the bullying that causes physical pain and suffering.  Then there is that which causes mental pain and suffering.

The negative repercussions of either form can result in suppressed social abilities and limitations in both family and work environments, at one end of the scale, to suicidal tendencies at the other. Read More→

Ok, so you’re smart, funny, and genuinely good at heart. And you have ideas that could solve many problems. You could be the perfect partner, parent, or friend. But something holds you back and you don’t always live up to that potential.

Something tells you that your ideas are not worth announcing in public.

Something keeps you from sharing your interesting stories.

Something stops you from giving all you’ve got, and taking all you need, from your closest relationships.

Even though you know that you can be so much more, deep down you have a nagging feeling that you are not worthy of greatness, joy, and happiness. This something is called low self-esteem and is keeping you from living your life to the fullest. Read More→

Why Listen?

By · Comments (0)

You’re at a dinner party. Someone is telling anecdotes; someone is complaining; someone is bragging about his promotion. Everyone there is eager to talk, to tell his or her story. Suddenly you get the feeling that no one is listening. While the talk goes on, you notice that people’s eyes wander. They are perhaps rehearsing their own remarks. It’s as if they have secretly agreed, “I’ll be an audience for you if you’ll be an audience for me.” The party may be a success, but people go home without really hearing or knowing each other.
