“Garath’s coaching has taken me to places in my mind that I have not been before. He has challenged the way in which I process my thoughts and decisions, whilst bringing a new level of self-awareness to my conscious state. Our coaching sessions have been invaluable in my personal development. I would highly recommend Garath as a coach.”

“Garath’s skill together with his relational, compassionate style helped me focus on the right things to succeed in the most difficult challenge I have faced to date. Garath consistently seeks the same outcome – to help those he works with to be the best version of themselves. And in my experience, his work with me absolutely achieved this. Expect to be challenged, expect to be stretched and expect results.”

“Coaching with Garath brought mindful leadership to the top of my priority list, allowing me to build greater relationships and connect with people on a completely different level. I was struggling with understanding my leadership role, and didn’t understand how my behaviours impacted on others. Garath supported me in finding my focus and polishing my approach, to be a better leader and human. I would highly recommend Garath Symonds.”

“The coaching with Garath has been very useful. Over six sessions, we identified and worked on a number of blockers that were hindering my development as a leader. Garath’s approach in helping me understand the “why” of each blocker was incredible and has helped me view each in a very different light, which in turn, offers a completely fresh perspective on how to relate to and then approach each of these development points. In addition, the work with Garath helps develop a framework for dealing with future blockers on your own and I’ve been fortunate enough to both see and feel the positive results of Garath’s efforts. Highly recommended!”

“I deeply value my coaching sessions with Garath. Each time I bring an issue that is weighing heavily on me or an area of my performance that feels stuck, the approach is kind and validating yet causes me to think and process at new depths which brings new awareness. Garath is very insightful and skilful. I always leave our sessions clearer, lighter and encouraged.”
