When I first met George I had been out of the army for five years. I had served in the infantry for seven years, deploying overseas several times including Afghanistan. My life was a rollercoaster of emotions and I just wasn't moving on from what we had seen and done in Afghanistan. I don't want anyone to get the wrong idea, I loved my time in the army and I'm grateful for the values it instilled in me and for the man it has made me today, experiences both good and bad that I'll remember for the rest of my life, but my mindset and way of thinking wasn't serving me well in civvy street and it had to change. I'd often thought that with all the resources and training available to turn someone into a disciplined soldier then what would I need to do to take my mindset away from being a soldier. So in addition to making a call to VVCS I started searching for someone who could teach me a better way of thinking. This is when I found George. I saw George and the EP7 process he shared with me made a lot of sense. From the brain training to the creativity and purpose development exercises, I noticed my stress levels had reduced dramatically and in a short time period too. My VVCS counselor was very impressed with how much my calmness and attitude had improved and how quickly. I don't require this service anymore. Not only did George share with me a better way to thinking to improve my self esteem, but has also helped address my fear of public speaking as this was getting in the way of my career development. Within three short weeks I was presenting without the unbearable nerves I was previously stuck with and getting more and more confident by the week. From this achievement I knew I was not going to look back. I highly recommend the EP7 coaching with George to anyone who needs support to gain the confidence to change their lives or to go after their dreams. It has been without doubt the best investment in not only my future but also for my family's future as well. My only regret now is that I didn't do this sooner.
