Testimonials

I decided to try Strathesk Resolutions after realising that I wasn’t coping with stress, anxiety, and depression at time of great pressure caused by my line manager and company. I felt very ‘boxed in’. 

A dear friend recommended Strathesk Resolutions and with trepidation I called with Malcolm. My first chat started without me realising it had, such was the friendly, safe environment Malcolm built for his ‘coaching’. During the session I was asked questions which allowed me to explain my issues in my own words, at my own pace, and how they affected me. The following sessions saw me delving into possible solutions [and] a direction to follow to reach a resolution. When the time came for my grievance interview I was prepared for any eventuality. It turned out to be a lot easier than I thought and as a result the final decision worked well for me.

I cannot thank Malcolm enough for this insight into the grievance process, and how resolution can help me in the future both professionally and in my home life. 

I highly recommend Malcolm and the coaching from Strathesk Resolutions.

I have worked with Malcolm on a number of people issues and am always impressed by his considered and pragmatic approach. He is very much focused on finding a win-win solution where possible and uses his excellent negotiating and influencing skills to good effect.  He is able to get to the heart of the matter quickly and to understand the various points of view, bringing new thinking and common-sense into the mix. I would recommend him for difficult individual and group people matters, mediation, training and developing partnership working.

He is an excellent negotiator with an extended knowledge of employment law and practice, his charm and social skills enable him to operate effectively in sometimes difficult or conflicted circumstances and he worked very hard on our behalf.
