Rudy Tingling, CRM Lead Consultant & Project Manager for Barclays Bank

My transition from being an employee of over twenty years to setting up a business training consultancy in the city is a professional success of which I am particularly proud.

However, in achieving this, it had never been an ambition that success should be achieved ‘at all costs’ or should become a single minded pursuit to the detriment of other areas – but that’s how my life had become.

I approached Believe Consulting to work on objectives that had proved elusive for over a decade; to build a way of working with balanced and calm approach, channelling energy and ambition simultaneously into a number of areas in my life.

The skilled application of Gestalt psychological theory by Amanda Owens and Paul Kelly enabled me to harness my best characteristics of ambition, drive,  and focus; and then secondly, identify and reverse my blockers - the issues that lay deep within me, which had being quite debilitating.

The results have been exceptionally gratifying; with Believe Consulting I have built ‘an unshakeable foundation’ – my personal modus operandi that enables me to live a healthy and fulfilled life.

Roger Haines hired Amanda J.N. as a Sports Psychologist & Performance Coach in 2008:
“Amanda took on the challenge to provide psychological evaluation, guidance & coaching on how my rowing partner and I would approach our forthcoming 4,350 mile race across the Indian Ocean. Under intense time constraints Amanda has been able to provide an innovative approach to our preparations. With her help, we have been able to better understand ourselves & each other, how to cope with the extreme conditions that we will encounter and how to support and motivate each other in these circumstances. Amanda has provided a number of tools and techniques to aid our development, which we will continue to use throughout our journey and beyond as highly useful life skills. She has offered her continued support at the end of our satellite phone should we need it on route, which will be a comfort in what is sure to be very testing times. This makes Amanda an invaluable member of our extended team who will have contributed immensely to our ultimate success. Tom and I wholeheartedly thank and recommend Amanda to others requiring a highly professional and tailored approach to their psychological and performance coaching needs.”
