He created Duo Coaching over 12 years ago when he had experienced traditional relationship counselling and realised that there was a need for a more balanced, intensive and outcome focused approach. He works together with Maria Hudson to work with clients 2 on 2. They have different backgrounds and styles, but they share values and approaches. They have found working together to be a remarkably effective way of working with couples together to help resolve relationship issues.
“Duo Coaching has saved our life together. From the first distraught phone conversation, and in Duo Coaching sessions over the last few months, you have helped us rebuild our shattered marriage and learn a great deal about ourselves, both as individuals, and as a couple. Duo Coaching worked for us as it provided a balanced view of our problems and allowed us to discuss them openly without feeling like either one of us was being judged or blamed. They have clearly worked incredibly hard, both in the sessions and in comparing notes and planning a way forward for the next session. They provided a comfortable and relaxed environment for us to openly discuss some difficult issues both in open forum and in one on one break outs and have given us the tools to continue to grow as a couple. During the time we have known them they have been flexible to our family needs and often gone further than they needed to, to support us through some very difficult times. We are very glad to have met them, really pleased that they cared, and highly recommend their innovative and understanding approach to counselling.”
“If we had gone to conventional counselling, we would have taken a long time getting nowhere. It would have been tedious, and my husband would have felt marginalised. This has worked wonderfully well for us.”
“They work fabulously together. They have great complementary skills that mean you get a well-rounded approach with real results. It is definitely a case of two heads being better than one. Your best qualities are caring, understanding, being relaxing to be with, thought provoking, listening, remembering and genuinely caring.”
