Mick and I worked together one on one with some personal coaching. With his help I could uncover several issues from my past which had been troubling me, and through his voice guided techniques I could gain greater objectivity about these issues and consequently more peace of mind. I heartily recommend to him to others. His techniques can be effectively applied to a multitude of circumstances including professionals facing business, sporting or personal challenges.

For the past 4 years I have been helping to coordinate a Mentoring Programme for five Local Authorities under the banner of the University of South Wales. This includes the Mentoring of individuals/teams who work in each LA, the training and development of Mentors and the deployment and monitoring of those Mentors to work with businesses and Sports Clubs throughout the region. In this time, we have called upon a number of outside agencies to provide Continual Professional Development programmesfor all personnel within the scheme. However, the work conducted by Spectrum Affiliates has exceeded all our expectations, proved very impressive and, as such, we are in the middle of planning for a comprehensive programme of services with them as we go into 2018.

I have had the privilege of working with Mick over the past three years. As the Head Coach of Hong Kong Sevens Mens and Womens Programmes, it was apparent from early in my tenure that the element of mental preparation for performance was not something that these groups had been exposed to and in my opinion this was inhibiting performance.
Working closely with Mick within training and competition environments, we were able to identify areas for development for both individuals and team. From this we formulated strategies which provided frame works for changing behaviour on both of these levels and this led to increases in performance.
The fundamental catalyst for this transformation was how Mick was able to coach myself and my staff into a space which enabled effective delivery of these strategies. Without his understanding of us as sports coaches and his ability to communicate the process which stimulates behavioural change in others, we would not have made the gains which we witnessed over this period.
Further, on a personal level, Mick’s performance coaching has provided me with a framework for effective reflection and evaluation of my own teaching and something that now stands as the foundation of my delivery.
