“Working with Darryl has been a great blessing to me. He has been remarkably supportive, gentle and compassionate yet skillfully adept at helping me focus on what is really important to me, what stands in my way and what next steps I want and need to take to accomplish my goals. Darryl is a great listener. I really feel heard, and that has been key to my trusting the coaching process. And he has fantastic, creative ideas that I’ve found eye-opening, simple and practical. I’ve been surprised to find myself, after every session, muttering, “Well, that was worth the cost!” It’s amazing to me, looking back at the process, how someone could help me cut through the brambles to be able to visualize some key goals. In retrospect, my next steps were obvious and the natural outgrowth of years of previous contemplation and experience. But they weren’t obvious to me before I started working with Darryl.
It’s also amazing how making some undramatic (I didn’t need to move, quit my job, or leave my family), but substantial, additions to my life are making such a big difference in how I feel about myself and how much more satisfied I feel with the direction my life is taking. It may be trite, but it’s still moving: that just taking one step–in this case, beginning the coaching process–seems to open doors. Things began to fall into place, largely, I think, because Darryl is so tuned in to the needs and inspiration of the moment. You’ll be in great hands if you decide to work with him.”
