Thank you so much Paul for your coaching and support during this challenging time. The expat life in Vietnam is not always easy and I was completely stuck in my career and as a consequence of this the other areas of my life, health, relationships, were negatively affected as well.
Thanks to our working together over the last 3 months, my career is now back on track : my new communication skills showing wonderful results with the high level of engagement from my employees, not to mention that my relationship with my wife has been elevated to whole new level. I feel back in control once again.

As the year is coming to a close, I wanted to thank you for helping me to stabilize my life and my health again. I never thought that seeking a coach would be something that I would be doing, but looking back and reflecting at what I achieved after working with you, I am truly grateful that I met you.
Once again thanks for your great help this year and looking forward to our next coaching conversation!

I am from Melbourne, Australia and I arrived here in Vietnam with my wife and daughter 6 months ago. My wife received a working assignment in Vietnam for a two year period. I thought it would be easy to locate work and settle into a senior executive role in a very short time but unfortunately that was not the case.
I was confronted with a completely different cultural lifestyle with challenges around the language barrier, transportation, developing new business and personal networks etc… Due to this I started to lose confidence, focus and energy and found the whole situation overwhelming and paralyzing. My relationship with my wife and daughter was starting to deteriorate as a result of this transitional period.
Once we started working and coaching together my circumstances turned around almost immediately. Having someone believe in me at this low period of my life was enough for me to take massive action. With your support to boost my confidence and energy, I was now in a high state to attract the perfect position for me in Vietnam. Within 3 weeks I was offered an executive role and also talking to another 2 companies about long term contracts. My future is now looking much more promising as I am starting to benefit from my overseas experience.
I will recommend your coaching services to other expats who maybe having the same transitional challenges.
Thanks so much.

Working in one of the outer provinces of Ho Chi Minh City as a primary school teacher, I am completely happy in my career. I was experiencing some relationship problems with a colleague of mine. Due to this challenge every time I saw this person I would become very upset and recall all the details of this past problem which started to affect my life and emotions. I felt powerless and out of control.
I contacted Paul and started to work with him about 4 weeks ago. Working together I became more aware that I had some past habits and patterns (fixed ways of doing things) that I was using but no longer working for me. We replaced them with more positive and effective patterns that are now producing the results that I want.
I visit Paul in Saigon twice a month and we Skype every other week. The regular support is so refreshing and I am extremely excited to be back in possession of my power and in control.
We are continuing to work together.

Just a brief note to say thank you for your ongoing support and help after my employment was terminated suddenly last month. That really affected me in a big way as you know the state I was in when I first met you. The shock of this impacted me so much I was slipping into a depression, making bad decisions and feeling overwhelmed and powerless to know what to do next. I felt lost and fearful about how to move forward.
I remember so well our first session the day we met. We spend 2 hours together. You listened to my story without judgment and advice. When I walked into your office I was very low in energy, sad, only focusing on the negative and could see no future. When I left your office I felt a massive transformation. You helped me to break my negative pattern and my energy returned and I had a clear, confident plan on how to move forward. The work we are doing together is impacting my life in a very positive way and I feel that I am now back in the game and very confident about my future.
Looking forward to our next coaching conversation.
Thanks for all your help.

I have been living in Asia for over 15 years and the time has come for me to start thinking about retiring back to my home country New Zealand. I am reluctant to go back as I know it will be a huge contrast to my current lifestyle. This has created serious relationship problem with my wife as I am sabotaging all efforts and plans for our retirement. Also I have fears and concerns about retiring, my health and growing older as well as what will I be doing during my retirement years.
I engaged Big Vision Life Coach as my fear and procrastination about moving forward were starting to affect my work and daily functioning. I have been carrying these concerns around with me for many years and the stress has now become too great.
Just been able to talk and share with someone my inner concerns who doesn’t know me or my network of contacts has been a great release in itself. A person who listens and only has my welfare at heart with no ulterior motive like some good meaning friends who don’t want to hurt you by telling you the truth and how it really is. Working together we eliminated a lot of the imaginary fears and set up some strategic action steps to take me to a point where I was able to create a positive future for my retirement. I feel so much more positive after the first few sessions and now my wife and I are talking and planning with excitement as we transition towards our golden years.
Thank so much for your coaching support during this challenging time.
