I had the occasion to be supported by Donovan through a non-directive and extremely supportive coaching partnership, which complemented the partnership I was in with my business Mentor. We started with a very hefty stretch of an income goal for me … and I’m in the 10% of professional coaches who already make well over $10,000/year. This goal was to be received within our coaching partnership of just 3 months, and as lofty and difficult as the goal appeared to be at times I was absolutely DELIGHTED to be in a position to announce to Donovan that with his help, especially through the visioning exercises he guided me, I received my goal! Plus! I will never know for sure, Donovan, but I feel confident in telling you that I’m not sure I would have received my goal had I not had your support. That boost of confidence in my having reached that benchmark is so powerful! My tolerations bar will never again be lower than that mark … thanks to you!

"I found working with Donovan as my coach over three months really motivating and useful. He has a sincere, focused and motivating approach and I have found him to be 100 per cent professional and highly intuitive. He has really challenged me and allowed me to take a good look at what I want and how I will achieve it. I loved the way he supported and encouraged me through his highly accurate listening and feedback skills. I found the sessions exciting, fun and highly thought-provoking. I highly recommend coaching with Donovan." Coral J.
Before my coaching sessions with Don I as very unfocussed and uncommitted to myself. I found it hard to motivate myself to even decide what I wanted in my life, let alone how to go about getting it. Being coached by Don has helped me to gain some confidence in moving forward. He has helped me to sharpen my focus by homing in on specific goals and clear deadlines. This was something I really struggled to do before now. In gaining this clarity, I feel quite strong and enthused about my life, this was not in me before. I assumed that my coaching experience was going to be difficult and then perhaps result in nothing. Don’s coaching style made me relaxed and trusting. I have never been this challenged in my life before, it’s been the second hardest thing I have done in 43 years (giving birth to my son, the hardest), but the rewards have been great. Don helped me to see my inner blocks, to truly look at myself in a way I have never done before, though tough, this has been exactly what I needed to go forward with authenticity. I would recommend Don to those who truly want to appear as themselves in the world, and are ready to make profound changes. His style is gentle, and yet the impact penetrates so profoundly, you wonder how is this possible. Thanks Don, you have helped me possibly more than you even know. Nyela Reid
"Before I started my coaching sessions with Don, I had just started my own coaching course at the Coaching Academy. With his encouragement I took on my first practical coachee and worked out a strategy to give more attention to the course requirements. I found Don to be a very insightful coach who really listened to me. He always kept me focussed and brought new angles to bear on the muddled situations I presented him with. I feel very positive now about coaching and encouraged to put further efforts into my own training. I would thoroughly recommend Don as a coach and can say with confidence that anyone who works with him will definitely move forward."
"Before I started with Don I was not motivated in my school work at all. With the coaching sessions I am now organised and have good ways how to face dilemmas. I made a plan for revision which helped as I had GCSE exams. I managed to pass more than 5 A-C GCSE as a result of my timetable revision. Don was great and very sociable. I would 100% recommend him to others."
"I recommend doing coaching with Donovan. He is really positive and supportive, with his help I’ve been able to achieve so many thins I didn’t even know were possible. I have learned lots of new things about myself an seen myself, by being more focused in school and having the confidence to do my best. I was able to take by D grade to B in Physics. It was good coaching having Donovan as my coach as I felt I could talk about my problems, as he was someone who wasn’t close to me and wouldn’t judge me. If you need some help to improve your focus and studies, Donovan is the right man for you!" Nadine G.
