WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY Believe in Yourself - Colin Slater 0419 568 043v
I achieved much out of the coaching sessions with Colin because he listened to my goals and challenges and provided me with the necessary steps to overcome the concerns and to focus on my personal and professional goals. As I was heading into new
territory Colin was able to instil confidence and provide direction through simple models that made a lot of sense.
Colin was always attentive to the fact that the sessions were confidential and he provided me with significant other resources to follow through in between my sessions. I would recommend Colin as someone who has your interest and future at heart. Garry Putland, Director Savvy Thinking, Adelaide, SA
Colin l wanted to say thank you for all the support and help you extended to me earlier this year when I was going through my health issues.
I have to say I came to you as a last resort I didn’t really believe that there was anything you could do but I was so beside myself that I was willing to try anything.
To my pleasant surprise the day after my first appointment with you I was in the road to recovery I honestly couldn’t believe the difference it had made to the eating disorder that had me down on my knees.
The activities, words, support encouragement you showed me, had me eating & drinking within a short space of time.
I would recommend you to anyone that is going through a challenging time in their life.
It has been over 7 months now and your techniques still have the capacity to help me.
So thank you
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Colin. Through a combination of effective listening, questioning and honest challenging, Colin’s approach helped me to re-focus and identify commitments to aspects of my life and the actions I am taking, or not taking, in those areas.
He was able also able to give some simple and practical exercises to engage in between sessions which I found very useful in terms of both preparation for the sessions and to make me think more broadly about some of the issues I wished to address Paul Francis, Adelaide, SA
My coaching experience with Colin was unforgettable! He was very warm and compassionate and I learnt so much about myself in our sessions together.
The confidence he inspired in me to stick to my goals and push through my limiting beliefs was outstanding.
After nine sessions with him I can’t ever see myself looking back.
If you ever want to better yourself and live the life you truly love then Colin is the man for you!

How I got into Life Coaching
You may wonder, what causes a man who has devoted 33 years to winemaking to undergo a career change, and a lifestyle change to become a life coach.
Some people call it a ‘defining moment’ or a fork in the road, where you decide to make a life changing decision.
Whilst studying the likes of Stephen Covey, Dr Wayne W Dyer, John C. Maxwell, Sharon Pearson of the Coaching Institute, and Jack Canfield, the concept of “ making a difference" began to emerge.
Whilst making wine for people to drink was enjoyable and held my interest and passion for many years it was becoming apparent that it was being overtaken by a stronger influence as the reality of my mortality hit home and the need to make a difference in people's lives and my own.
A major shift in philosophy about making a difference in my own life and that of others has brought Life Coaching to the fore.
So a course of studies at the Coaching Institute began in October 2009 and now I work in partnership with people to improve their thinking and their results along with a better quality of life.
It has allowed me to give back to others what I have learnt about human behaviour which I cannot keep to myself.
Pay it forward has become my mission.
It has not been easy or without doubts and is still a work in progress. Embracing the unknown is both a little frightening and liberating. I do know from my studies that the human mind is capable of magnificent and dramatic changes and I look forward with anticipation as to what the future will bring.
We are the result of all the influences, people and experiences that come into our lives.
The meaning that we give those experiences, determines what we think, say and do and how we influence others.
Now I’m not suggesting that you need to follow my path and it may be a suitable time for you to examine where you are going in life and whether you have achieved what you wanted .
Are you ready to Be More?
There may be something waiting for you to pick up or finish in your own life and I would suggest not to
delay doing it, however examine your reasons for wanting it.
If it has both purpose and meaning, pursue it by all means.
If you need help to get started or to get clear on what it means for you let me know.
