Loz's Testimonial

Phil Evans is one man that I will never forget – he taught me how to live.

Phil's involvement with you never ends at your last session. Often out of the blue I will receive a call checking in to see how I am going – something I haven't received once from any of the three psychologists I have seen over the years. His sessions are far from clinical – he is a man who loves to work with people and has the purest intentions to see them succeed in life.

I remember disagreeing with Phil on our first session together – when he proposed the idea that I could be medication-free one day, I thought 'this man has no idea – I will kill myself if I am not on medication'. I think I was around 19/20 years old at the time, on a disability pension for psychiatric illness, was surrounded by negative 'friendships', I sought love in the wrong places and, although I didn't identify it at the time, had a serious binge drinking problem (usually minimum of three times a week).

Phil helped me to look at the cause of my mental health symptoms rather than accept the label of a life-long illness. Phil has a way or working through grief and heartache in a gentle and loving way – he was there to help me with present hurts in relationships, but taught me effective ways to grieve my father's suicide and helped me to express the anger in a helpful way. I learnt not to feed emotions, that I only had my meet my own expectations, he recognised my strengths and helped me to overcome my weaknesses.

Changing my life wasn't an immediate thing and the changes I took were gradual and occurred naturally over a course of time. By my twenty-first birthday I, with the approval of my treating psychiatrist and psychologist, took the first steps to coming off medication.

As a twenty-four year old I am still in communication with Phil and enjoy his peoplEmails and his phone calls. Over the years I have made several trips back to get some life coaching when issues have appeared or when 'undigested grief' from the past has started playing havoc.

Unfortunately, life is life and it is going to throw us challenges and it won't be easy. Life coaching helps you to take ownership of the things you can change in your own life and in yourself, including the way you respond to situations.

Four months ago I had found myself in a place of crisis – I went through several traumas back in January and many months later I wasn't dealing with it. I had suffered loss and been in a car accident and now out of work, I found myself in one of the darkest depressions I had been in in ten years. I went back to my habit of sitting in a room with a shrink and discussing the issues (which only seemed to create self-pity) and checked myself out of the hospital I admitted myself into after a week – I was only getting worse.

Then it was like a light-switch – why hadn't I thought of it sooner: Phil Evans. After I first contacted Phil saying I wished to go back to life coaching, there was a series of events that prevented us from having a session. In these times I was able to reflect upon what Phil had taught me in the past and apply it to my current circumstances. I found ways to work through the grief and found things to ignite my passion again.

I am back to working a job I love on weekends, I have resumed full-time study for my Youth Work diploma and I am waking up with a smile on my face (When I first approached Phil I think I expressed that I was feeling pain in my cheeks from frowning so much and couldn't remember the last time I genuinely smiled). I am excited again about my wedding in December, which was coming close to being postponed due to my depression and the relationship I have with my fiance has improved since I applied Phil's teachings.

Best way I can explain the role Phil has had in my life is that he has acted like a scaffold to my building. We started our work on the damaged foundations, then set work placing the bricks of inner strength, resilience and the power to change my own life. Once in place, the scaffold can be taken down and you are left with a strength to take care of your life. In life you may foolishly wonder away from this like I did, but it's easy to find your way back as long as your remember the address: What Phil Evans taught me.

Thank yo so much Phil

Thank you so much Phil, you have changed every facet of my life, thinking and being! I took the course “The Art of Being You” by Phil Evans, and I have to say that over the time of the course, things really shifted in my life “BIG TIME”. You see at the beginning of the course, Phil has you write down where you are at, and also where you want to be by the course end. I observed first hand, how powerfully others changed during and after the course finished, because this is a course that stretches your thoughts for the better for life. And as may or may not kn..

I have had the pleasure of working with Phil Evans (I should say Phil has been working with me) over the last year as a result of a recommendation, initially to my wife, Jodie. I have to admit I was a reluctant starter in the beginning because I know there are a few shonks that like to claim they can solve everyone's problems, ask for the money, receive it then do a runner; but I am pleased to say that Phil does not fall into this category. Jodie, however was keen from the start as our relationship was suffering as a result of a few personal issues, some current, some old, and some that w..

Have you ever watched an Olympic gymnast do her routine on the un-even bars? When the routine is very difficult, you’ll often see her coach, right there beside her in case she needs support. He’s literally got her back. He’s there for her and she knows it. This level of comfort and unquestioned support is the best way I can describe the support, respect, and love I received from Coach Phil Evans. Through out our coaching relationship, he has been very willing to work with me regarding our 14-hour time difference. He’s used just the right amount of listening and tal..

Dear Phil Here's a Personal Testimony for you to share with anyone who may benefit. From the age of fourteen I had labels placed upon me by mental health professionals; been medicated; and had regular appointments with psychologists. Counseling might have lifted my spirits for a short time after each session, but there was a constant need to return and go through the process of sitting down (again) and blurting out everything that was going on in my life (still). During those six years I had eight admissions to psychiatric hospitals that tried to band-aid an illness, Bipolar Disorder, t..
