Coaching with Thomas McCormack was a rich and rewarding experience. Besides being incredibly open and approachable, he served as a wonderful coach, enabling me to realize my true potential and deliver on it. Before my first coaching session, I felt rather anxious about the future and unsure about how I would pursue my goals.
However, following my first meeting with Thomas, I began to gain clarity and awareness about my mental hurdles and the means I could follow to overcome them. It was through Thomas’ thought-provoking questions, calm presence & coaching style that I gained my first step towards living independently in a new city in a different continent by getting my first job and stepping out of a bubble of privilege and security provided by a well-off family.
Coaching motivated me to do the scary thing – to take risks, make connections and helped me realize that we grow into our best selves by investing in our dreams and never giving up, no matter how bleak things might seem. It has given me the drive to be a go-getter, hustle and translate my dreams into reality.
Before I met Thomas I had some issues in my life regarding relationships, last relationships, sexuality, loss and career guidance.
Over the last few years, I had lost some close family members, I had a bad break up, I changed jobs, house and suffered from anxiety. I was happy but I had a lot of stuff built up inside, I was always the one to be there for others, be a listener but somehow along the way I lost myself a little. I found it difficult opening up to people, especially with my family or my partner. Some days my anxiety was really tough to deal with but I kept it inside - which did not help! One day I woke up and thought maybe if I talk to a complete stranger maybe, just maybe, this will help!
I’d heard about Thomas through a mutual friend & I decided to get in touch. He was excellent at organizing a time and a location that would suit me. When we met I was welcomed by a friendly smile, Thomas made me feel completely comfortable from the beginning to end. He opened the session by giving me a brief understanding of himself and why he does the work he does.
I discussed with Thomas some challenges I was facing and over the few sessions he gave me exercises or methods to use, which successfully worked out for the better. He kept track of each session and I knew exactly how I was progressing. He believed in me, so I began to believe in myself. Now months on, I am at the highest peak of happiness, my anxiety levels have decreased & I am able to communicate a lot better now with those close to me. I would recommend Thomas to anyone, especially someone who needs support & guidance dealing with difficult times or challenges in their lives.
I know for sure if I ever find myself in this situation again I will be in contact with Thomas again.
I felt very comfortable through the sessions with Thomas, it felt like more of a conversation more than a coaching session, which really put me at ease. I felt I could literally be whatever I wanted to be leaving his sessions, it gave me a great feeling about myself and how no goal is unreachable if I wanted it. The sessions gave me realistic and achievable plans, that made my bigger goals seem more obtainable. As a result of the coaching with Thomas I will be opening my own business in August 2018and this is certainly on the merit of the newfound self-worth discovered during these sessions. I don’t think I would be in the position that I am in right now, opening my own business if I had not gone to the coaching sessions with Thomas - definitely not so soon. I would certainly recommend Thomas to anyone at a crossroads in their life or someone that is looking to enhance their own self-belief. Thomas inspires you to “become the best version of you”.
