Andy’s coaching support has been fantastic! Andy has coached me over a four month period on a variety of topics including the establishment of my business and management of my work life balance. Andy’s style of coaching is insightful, thoughtful and, at times when I needed it, he has challenged me to expand my belief in what is possible but most importantly, Andy has seriously motivated me to achieve! I would recommend Andy to anyone who wants to achieve their personal or business goals!

I was fortunate enough to be referred to Andy at a point in my career when all options were on the table. The stakes were therefore very high, since the wrong decision would potentially have led me down the wrong path for years to come. Andy was extremely skilled in listening to the meaning behind my words, challenging my assumptions and helping me see in a new way. He explored what motivates me when setting life goals and helped me make what I now know to be the right decision about my future. I feel incredibly positive and am looking forward to the next part of my life, having benefited from Andy's skilful guidance. I recommend him without hesitation.

Upon recommendation, we commissioned Andy to deliver personal performance coaching as part of our leadership programme earlier this year.
Andy was a valued member of our team and was reliable and professional at all times. More importantly, he immediately created a rapport with our clients and supported and challenged them to make positive strides forward in their personal and professional lives.
Susan scored Andy with the top grade in her feedback and gave the following comment:
“Andy has been reassuring, positive and kept me totally on track. I only wish we could have more. Week on week he has monitored my development and I can honestly say I feel more focussed in what I do and know where I might be going rather than stagnating.”
I will definitely be commissioning Andy again to contribute to future programmes and I highly recommend him to others.

I have known Andy Hilton for 3 years as a member of the Cumbria Coaching Network (CCNet) and latterly as Chairman. He has great qualities of professionalism, compassion, rigour and fairness. Having been coached by and having coached him as part of our peer coaching programme, I can vouch for his integrity and ability. He is a competent and challenging coach, with the knack of seeing to the heart of an issue in a skilled manner. He is a very enthusiastic Chair of CCNet and his even-handedness is steering us to greater success. I would happily recommend him for whatever position or project he is involved in.
I have been engaged in a coaching relationship with Andy Hilton for the past two years. During my coaching with Andy I have always found him to act with the utmost professionalism and integrity, he is both non-judgmental and has always been 100% committed to my personal and professional goals. He has enabled me to identify my own barriers and obstacles to success and this has empowered me to identify solutions to overcome my barriers. Andy worked at my pace and has demonstrated a level of empathy which has been encouraging and consolidating. As a direct result of my coaching with Andy I have made a number of key accomplishments during the past two years which has included that of setting up my own successful business and gaining qualifications.
I would recommend Andy Hilton to anyone who wishes to turn their goals into reality. If you are motivated then a coaching relationship with Andy will move you forward to achieving your goals and targets.
This is my third time I have been coached and with each coach I have found a particular strength or attribute that the coach has in his/her methods. With Andy I have found not just one, but many.
I needed to be coached on starting up my business. I came to Andy with a variety of issues that I needed to resolve in order to move forward. I knew I had to be coached so I could un-stick my self from negative beliefs and needed an extra push with "feeling the fear" of starting up my own business “but doing it anyway"!
From being coached by Andy I feel like I have developed a new confidence within myself. Andy’s belief in me and clever questioning have enabled me to open a whole new chapter in my life and has made me even more enthusiastic and capable than ever before. I didn't want our sessions to end!
I felt I could trust Andy, all of what I told him was confidential I felt secure enough within the sessions to know it wouldn't go any further.
I felt full of enthusiasm after every call. I will highly recommend Andy to any friends who express an interest in being coached.
... a summary report from Andy Hilton on the work he has done over the past three months coaching members of our Business Support Team. This gives useful evidence
(including quantifiable) of the progress the staff made while being coached and the benefits they have received as a result.
The business managers and I found Andy’s clear, supportive feedback sessions on each occasion very valuable. We took on board as a result information about communication and feedback which has already reaped results and built more trust within the team. I feel it has helped to improve the quality of the line management relationships within the team too. We have noticed the impact on those coached; particularly increased confidence.
So all in all, I, and the managers, have been impressed with the results Andy achieved and I would certainly be happy to recommend him to other teams if they were interested.
