    “Really enjoyed my AF coaching sessions with Nigel! I went into the initial session rather sceptical as I had had AF coaching before and was still struggling with the same issues. However, I came out of that session feeling like a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders again! I feel like I am going to break a huge barrier, one that not only impacts on work life but my personal life too. I honestly can’t tell you how much I get from these sessions and Nigel’s passion for AF is highly infectious. Would highly recommend these coaching sessions for anyone needing to deep dive into their relationship with alcohol. His book ‘Walking Back to Happiness’ is packed with helpful and relatable tips and hacks. Would highly recommend Nigel’s coaching sessions.” Claire, UK
