Are you still lost and stuck at a crossroads?

My dear ghosts,

I hope you are well. It’s been a long time since I heard from you and so I wanted to take the opportunity to check in: to let you know that I have not forgotten you.

You hear on the news sometimes how people go missing without a trace. Faces appear on milk cartons and over bridge walkways. Notices of “last seen” moments stapled to telegraph poles.

From our regular contact, I invested a genuine interest in your problem; you always said you were grateful for the advice and insights shared. You even asked me to tell you more about ways I could help you find a new path so you could achieve a solution. So, we talked on the phone sharing experiences, connecting.

I never mind if you find alternative solutions. I have only ever wanted you to find the right solution for your problem so you can live a life you’ll love.

I will never know.

You evaporated like a phantom. Gone without a trace. Did the time we spent connecting ever exist? Were you a figment of my imagination?

I wonder what ever happened to you next. Whether you found your new path and moved on to a happier life or whether you are still stuck at a crossroads somewhere out there, door upon door closing in around you?

I will never know.

But I think of you often.

And I always hope that you have found a way somehow.

Because I invested a genuine interest – not some fleeting apparition of support.

Look after yourselves, my dear ghosts.

Until we meet again in another lifetime….

Take care.

A caring coach

I first worked with Will whilst I was a junior member of a teaching team. I worked closely with him for around three years and he became a true mentor to me. During this time Will helped encourage me to discover my own leadership style and he mapped out what it takes to be successful. I highly recommend Will for life and career coaching.

Will is a professional, natural leader who manages to make you feel at ease. He manages to be both emphatic and encouraging, whilst also managing to challenge you to find your own answers. Will’s approach is totally non-judgmental and the sessions are really focused on you and on what you want to achieve. Working with Will has allowed me to address challenges I was facing and he brought a wealth of resources and practical tools to help me set goals, clarify my values, and explore avenues right away. Even though I left teaching 5 years ago, I still seek out Will for his help and guidance and I appreciate his versatility as a thought partner, ally, and coach. Our sessions are always productive and efficiently run, which is perfect for someone who is juggling many priorities! Will brings great communication, professionalism and quality to his work and I highly recommend him as a life/business coach.

Will at Mapleleaf vision fitted me in for a last minute decision-making session that I needed to make ASAP re. a job offer / career change. He was friendly, professional, and really knew his stuff! He unpicked things that I could never have done on my own. I’m so grateful to him & will be highly recommending him to everyone! Where there is a ‘Will’, there’s a way! Thank you, Will. You truly have a gift.
