“One of the best sources for personal growth is within us. Unfortunately, even though we believe we know ourselves well, the pursuit for insights is often blocked by layers of our unconscious defence mechanisms. These might be helpful in the short term but prevent us from digging deep and really understanding what we are about. I’m very curious to understand myself better but the business endeavours keep me on the move and I rarely find time to pause and experience the now. This is why I joined Gary’s coaching sessions – I wanted to explore the concepts of mindfulness and learn more about myself.

Gary got together a small group of men and for eight weeks led our meditations and discussions. We explored compassion, attention, and unconscious mental processes that guide a lot of our behaviour. These are all very personal matters, however, Gary facilitated our sharing and explorations. He is very honest with himself and it also became very natural for all of us to dig deep and find out more about ourselves in the process. We formed a strong bond, almost like an alliance. I learned, enjoyed myself, and am looking to spend more time with Gary in the future.”

Gary’s coaching sessions are highly recommended without any doubt, but only for professionals who are willing to commit themselves a 100% “
