Paul's coaching helped me make progress I couldn't have imagined. His calm support, tenacious challenging and belief in me made me feel safe, yet courageous to go further and achieve more than I ever could have done on my own. Everyone could do with having Paul on their side!
Some of the testimonials received from those I've worked with. My gratitude goes out to everyone below for all of the kind words.

Coaching with Paul leaves you in awe of what you've discovered about yourself through his skilful mastery of holding you in a space that is completely authentic. His deep insight and ability as a personal development coach takes you on a journey of great transformative personal growth. Paul is exactly what I was looking for in a coach.
Paul is an excellent leadership coach – he's calm and collected, always making me feel at ease. He challenges my understanding of my ambitions and direction and has empowered me to find clarity and a plan for the future. I always leave sessions feeling more motivated and ready to make changes!
Paul has keen insights in human personalities and business complexities, positioning his beautifully to coach both tactical and strategic individuals through professional and even sometimes personal challenges.
Paul helped me recently when I was down about losing my job due to a layoff. He helped me gain clarity with this and gave me the strength to move on and expand my career in other ways. In our sessions together, he helped me realize that things were going to be just fine as long as I had the mental, emotional and spiritual clarity of the situation. We talked about the highs and lows of a new job that I was offered from many perspectives. Now I am glad to say that I am in a new position and that Paul helped me stick to my guns to get this job, as well as to better myself in the process.
I don't think I would have even considered a Life Coach if Paul Smart didn't exist – not afraid to use the occasional expletive and often extremely funny, he doesn't mince his words – but he's also completely professional and hugely helpful when it comes to clarifying your values and goals. After just a couple of sessions Paul helped me get the clarity and courage to completely change my approach to my career, and I've made more progress in the six months since than I did in the six years previously. Asking for Paul's help is one of the best things I've ever done for myself and if you're feeling stuck I'd thoroughly recommend you do the same.
I found Paul's approach really refreshing. There was no sugar coating or magical promises, yet I could tell straight away that Paul had something great to offer. I had not worked with a Life Coach before and so it's difficult for me to provide a comparison. Talk about putting things in check! One big ah ha moment for me was when we talked about how I priced my products and services in my business. Paul explained why going back to those core values would play a big part in helping me with pricing in conjunction with other factors. I look forward to working with Paul again and would recommend his services to anyone who is ready to make changes for the better.
