Hi Phil sorry to message you on here I hope you don’t mind but I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support and for giving me such an inspiring insight into my husband’s journey with you so far, I find it hard to articulate what that meant to me. Some of the things you said on Monday really hit home to me and were powerful like the story of the two monks and don’t get on the train! If there’s anything I can do to better support him please do put it in the homework because I am so dedicated to being there for him. After every session I feel like a piece of my husband comes home – and you know the best part? He is SMILING! I cannot thank you enough for the positive impact you are having on our family x

Phil helped me define who I am and provided me with tools that will stay with me for life. I now have new additions to my daily and weekly routine that not only help me reach my goals but have improved my life as a result.
My issue that lead me to Phil in the first place was resolved by going through the process, despite it not being the focus of my journey!
Every session was filled with new insights, actions and a surge of positive energy. I always came away with a smile on my face. I started the process feeling I was in a 5/10 place and ended in a 10/10 place!
Thank you Phil.

Having been born and raised in Cambridge and playing cricket from an early age I fulfilled my dream becoming a professional cricketer and played with and against some of the world greats.
Having known of Phil through cricketing circles I was made aware of Phil’s reputation as a life and performance coach. We were introduced by a mutual friend at a time when I had just lost my job and suffered some truly personal difficulties and was faced with some deep and difficult life challenges. I cannot describe how low I was feeling at that time in terms of my self-worth and confidence. I was in a bad way.
Phil took the time out to travel and visit me at my home and spent some life changing time with me. He set out to uncover many of my personal strengths, values and achievements of which we discussed in depth.
He made sure I wrote them down then set me a task of explaining how it felt when doing this. I immediately received a rush of positivity as I had forgotten who I was and what I had achieved in my life. It was like a journey of self-discovery. Phil’s time with me kick started my self-belief and I started to see a future again.
Phil then introduced me to a friend who works in the sports industry culminating in me being offered a position.
I can’t thank or recommend Phil enough and am so grateful that my good friend convinced me to meet him.

We all have challenging times in our lives and they take their toll. During these times I felt as though I was slowly losing myself and becoming affected more and more by self-doubt and low esteem. At my worst, I would waste hours overthinking situations and finding blame for my problems instead of dealing with the issues that caused them. I was just hiding from my life.
After a chance conversation with Phil about my perceived problems, I took the next step to talk about them properly. That was the best step I have taken in years!
Phil has guided me through the coaching process with full trust, honesty and commitment. Above all else, it’s a place to gain control of my thinking.
Phil has given me the the tools to recognise and deal with the situations and issues of everyday life. I have new goals and a new sense of purpose, more than that, the smile is back in my life.
I can’t thank Phil enough for enabling me to rediscover that I have the power to be whatever I choose.
I’m proud to call Phil my coach and my friend.

After many years of providing a quality customer experience, long working days, an abundance of self-induced work related stress, sleep deprivation and a very poor work life balance, I found myself in a very dark and lonely place with zero light to gravitate towards.
Well that was the case until I was extremely fortunate to meet with Mr Phil Toogood.
Our very first session together will forever stick in my memory. Phil told me that I was now in a safe place, that we had now begun this journey together and that, ‘it’s okay’ to feel how I did. I subsequently put all my trust and faith in Phil, and at that point I really did feel totally safe with Phil. From that moment I looked forward to our weekly sessions, Phil never failed to lift my mood and raise my spirits.
Phil’s commitment was absolutely overwhelming, being in the presence with someone who is as attentive and totally engaged is an awe inspiring experience, with a warm fuzzy feeling too. Previously I was too embarrassed to even acknowledge that I had mental health issues, but Phil gave me the strength for acceptance with those two simple words ‘it’s okay’.
Over twelve inspirational sessions, Phil’s guidance assisted me tremendously to refocus, to reflect without judgement, to set new goals, to plan strategies and to measure my achievements.
Phil’s coaching methods and knowledge of neuroscience is absolutely tremendous, I would most definitely recommend Phil to anyone, you don’t have to hit rock bottom to need some guidance.
I can only wax lyrical about this man’s passion, empathy, inspiration, attentiveness, engagement, energy and professionalism.
My experience has literally been life changing. I made a true friend for life in this truly genuine great guy.
You’re magnificent Phil !!!!

I have known Phil Toogood, of Cranfield Philips, for over 16 years; he is one of the most loyal, inspiring and trustworthy people I have ever met.
Our relationship started when I was still studying at college, and Phil needed some help setting up his computer and email. Over the last 16 years our connection has grown into a rare, true business partnership. I also consider him a friend.
He has stuck by my side as I have traversed the IT & creative industries, as I have supported him as he grew multiple businesses to success for other leaders. I was absolutely delighted when he contacted me to help forge the brand for his own business, and develop the marketing and website.
The mission and core values of Cranfield Philips reflect the person I have known for all these years. Phil is truly aligned with his business and through his unique approach to coaching he will help others succeed, as he has me.
Over the years I have been unofficially mentored by Phil, and the small snippets I have gleaned from his methods have transformed the way I work and operate my business, which is growing from strength to strength. Whether you’re in business, sport, or facing personal challenges, having Phil Toogood on your team will guarantee you define and deliver success.
