I first came to Craig while working on my PhD at the University of Oxford as I was failing to make progress on writing my thesis. I had tried two other coaches previously but they didn't work out. My experience with Craig was categorically different. Whereas the other coaches seemed to have a boilerplate approach to coaching driven by worksheets and platitudes, Craig really listened and understood the problems and behaviors I was struggling with.
Over repeated sessions, he was amazing at spotting negative patterns in my behavior that I couldn't see myself and at providing concrete guidance on how to address those self-defeating habits. In the time that I've been working with Craig I've accomplished things I didn't think were possible. I've completed my PhD, published multiple peer-reviewed papers, finished three triathlons, and established a loving, healthy relationship with my soon-to-be wife. I can honestly say that all of this would not have been possible without Craig's steady, insightful guidance keeping me on track.
