“I was experiencing change in all of the major areas of my life. My father passed away, I was transitioning from a business into retirement, and I had stepped down from a leadership position in my church. Noela’s support as my life coach during the difficult process of change has been invaluable. Starting with a reassessment of my skills, abilities and life experience she encouraged me to set goals which have enabled me to use these to continue to be involved in life and the community. At the same time she has provided many useful resources and input to help me grow in the area of my skills. During the times when I have become disillusioned with various areas of the process Noela has been a compassionate supporter but at the same time an assertive motivator. I find she has very good balance in her coaching. With Noela’s help I now find that I am moving forward and happy and positive with this new season in my life and have recommended her to a number of friends”.
"I am a management consultant and executive coach for a living and realised I had no one coaching me. I found Allen and we started a relationship that lasted around three years. He helped me through the most difficult time in my career. I was managing a rapidly growing business of over forty people, getting used to a new boss who was challenging a lot of what I was doing, and trying to cope with some seniors leaders in my team who were critical of my leadership. Allen helped me take all my own personal stuff out of it and focus on the issues at hand. I grew a lot in the process and made some tough decisions that were good for the business. I finally decided it was time for me to step down as the boss and focus on clients and sales. I knew I would enjoy it more and had been hanging on a bit too long. Allen supported me to 'fall' gracefully into the new role. My last eighteen months at the firm were my most happy and content! I would say Allen's greatest strength is his encouragement and ability to help me reframe."
"Every single time I have had a coaching session with Noela (via Skype) her guidance has improved my circumstances. No matter your walk in life - whether you are pursuing a promotion in your job, seeking a career change, desiring improvement in your personal or professional relationships, or just wanting to improve your life all round, Noela can, and will, help you achieve your goals."
"As my Executive Coach, Allen helped me become aware of thinking that was hindering me from furthering my career. Several negative events in my business had left me feeling overly cautious. Fear and stress affected my belief in myself. By employing the techniques Allen shared with me (and his unwavering support), I was able to regain both my passion and confidence, and overcome the challenges I was facing. I gladly recommend Allen as an Executive Coach."
"My sessions with Noela have been fundamental in helping me live according to my values, achieve my goals and realise my own expectations, rather than the expectations of others. With the help of Noela I have developed tools that have so positively influenced the way I relate to people, both personally and professionally. I most appreciate the encouraging and non-judgmental tone of our sessions, as well as Noela’s brilliant sense of humor and frank honesty, all of which facilitate openness and ease of communication."
"If you seriously want to be challenged, and your aspiration is to change your life, then I would highly recommend Allen Collis as your Life Coach. His professional dedication to individualised coaching practices and techniques ensures clients' desires are achieved. With hard work, homework and honest commitment Allen has coached me to confidently turn my life around. Thank you Allen for your commitment and perseverance in keeping me moving forward."
