"I had got to a point where I wasn't happy with how my life was going and I had quit my job as it was making me quite
ill. I decided that I needed to find my focus again and figure out what I really wanted to do. I got in touch with Soo
and she really helped me assess where I saw my life was at that moment and where I actually wanted to be. I was
determined to find out what I wanted to do in terms of careers, and that is when I realised that sport is, and always
has been, my biggest passion in life, so now I am about to start my course to become a personal trainer and sports
I definitely recommend Soo if you feel like you have lost your way in life and need help in finding it again."
"I had the pleasure of working with Soo over a six month period. I had just
become self-employed after 32 years in a very structured working environment and
I needed to be self-disciplined with regard to setting up my business and
completing distance learning which would lead to an important qualification for
me and my new venture."
Soo's relaxed, friendly coaching style suited me well and I felt able to explore the reality of my situation without being judged, and Soo supported me as I investigated which options were available to me. During each of our sessions I set out achieveable action plans with timescales which took me closer to achieving my goals, and knowing that Soo would explore my actions with me during our next session ensured I completed them!
My business is now becoming established and I am more than halfway through my qualification. I know that I would not have reached this stage so quickly were it not for my sessions with Soo, and I have no hesitation in recommending her to others."
"Coaching made me think about what I really wanted and identified what I
needed to do to make things happen. Ongoing sessions with Soo reinforced
my goals and encouraged and inspired me to achieve them. I am delighted
with the results and feel very positive about the changes I have made."
"Even though I had been stuck in the same rut for some time, I was sceptical
that coaching could do much for me. Soo was tremendously helpful in getting
me to think objectively. Despite my natural tendency to side track myself,
she encouraged me to challenge my own preconceptions about what I could and
couldn't do, and kept me focused on the issues. She is clearly very skilled
and intuitive in her ability to listen and probe her client's thought
processes, and she does it with great warmth and naturalness. I would
recommend her very highly."
"I owe Soo a huge vote of thanks; she made me define and prioritise my goals,
eliminate some of the clutter and fuzz in my brain and channel my focus.
Being accountable to Soo on a weekly basis made me take the necessary steps
towards my goals. It is surprising how baby steps can achieve such huge
changes, and how changing one aspect of your life can affect nearly all
the others. Also, knowing that a person (beyond family and friends) was
supporting me really made a difference.
I would heartily recommend Soo and her life coaching to anyone who needs to have their focus channelled and wants to move forward. It really is well worthwhile. Thanks Soo!"
"I was feeling very impatient and fed up with myself as I had a deep feeling that I
was not fulfilling my potential. I decided to have a few sessions of life coaching
and met up with Soo. We had about half a dozen meetings, and worked through the
underlying issues. In looking at what was important to me, my values and goals,
we managed to devise an action plan and positive approach that will enable me to
reach my potential. It really focused my mind, and it was really helpful to see
with great clarity what is important to me and thus what I need to be doing.
Soo was very supportive, and with humour, sensitivity and warmth managed to point
me in the right direction. I would recommend that anyone who is feeling aimless
and at a loss, particularly with their job, should try a few sessions!"
"My coaching sessions with Soo have helped me to step back and focus on
issues that I want to improve. Soo has helped me with areas such as
motivation, health & fitness and communication. Soo is patient yet
encouraging, always asking challenging questions, which helps me to
look at situations from a new angle.
I always come away from our sessions knowing that I have a realistic action plan which will move me closer to my goal."
"Soo Hamilton has been coaching me for several months and in that time I've
had huge breakthroughs in my life!
Soo has a positive and upbeat manner and her coaching style is focused and action-orientated. Soo specifically coached me whilst completing coursework for a qualification I was studying for. By exploring and examining all aspects of the task, my motivators and end goals, we developed a plan of action and I was able to tackle the tasks, which I had previously perceived as insurmountable, with ease and enthusiasm.
Soo is a fantastic coach who, using her expert questioning skills, helps you to find solutions using your inner resources. I would be happy to recommend her services to anyone who wants to move forward in any area of their life."
