Eric from Own Goals Coaching has been such a positive experience, aligning with my goals, values and helping me put them into action. Holding me accountable, staying on track/topic and providing really valuable tips and resources for me to use. Extremely professional and understanding when I needed to change a pre-booked session due to busy working mum schedules. I will continue to work with Eric on a monthly basis to keep encouraging me to reach my own goals. Highly recommend Own Goals Coaching, thank you Eric!

Eric’s coaching sessions were both enjoyable and valuable. He provided a safe and comfortable space in which I could think and talk about things openly and honestly. With the questions he asked I was guided to a place where the areas I had been struggling with became clear. He helped me come to my own conclusions about what I actually needed to do and guided me towards a plan to get there. I have used the knowledge that Eric shared to work towards my goals, and I have also been able to apply some techniques and ideas that Eric shared to other aspects of my life as well. I would highly recommend Eric to anyone looking for a bit of help, clarification, and direction.

Eric is an easy person to relate to and someone who effortlessly manages to get you to self-reflect and be held accountable for your own improvement. I feel like the coaching sessions with Eric have awakened the inner me. Eric communicated well pre and post-session. The coaching was easy to set up. Eric was extremely punctual and always professional. Eric provided useful materials in a timely manner and retained all the information shared. He was genuinely interested and was able to guide and direct me with his gentle and supportive approach. I would wholeheartedly recommend Eric for any coaching sessions. I am going to continue my sessions with Eric as I now consider coaching to be as important as many other aspects of my life.
