“Upon meeting both Peter and Nikki from Guidelight it became quickly apparent that our QLD business was overlooking a crucial element within our overall wellness programme. Our Leadership Team often spoke about the strength of Spirit and Mind in our leadership based conversations and behaviours however we never explored, I suggest purposely, the critical element of Body. I think we all silently understood the power of a healthy body but chose NOT to address this mainly because of our own fear of physical pain or possibly individual disciplines required around our own diets.
After listening to Peter and Nikki talk about the interdependency of our own Physical Capacity to complement our Emotional, Intellectual and Inspirational Leadership capacities it was like a light-bulb moment for me. Simply put, the majority of the Scottish Pacific QLD Leadership Team willingly committed to an 8 week “Creating Healthier Workplaces” programme with Guidelight. Now we have almost completed the 2 months and the physical transformation within our team members is remarkable. More importantly, the team members are now openly talking about longer term lifestyle choices and rituals that will continue with them I believe for the rest of their lives.
Thank-you Peter and Nikki for making such a positive change to the Scottish Pacific QLD business”.
“Hey Peter – just wanted to give you some feedback. As I mentioned this year I am sharing the opportunity with my senior staff and ‘rotating’ attendance at your Leadership Forum. As you are aware my In Home Coordinator, Denise, attended yesterday. She was very impressed – unfortunately it is not often enough I see/hear her rave about much so I was very happy that she got so much out of it. I have ‘encouraged’ her that perhaps she would benefit from booking some one on one time with either yourself or one of your female counsellors. Time will tell and I hope that she does.”
Jo Todoruk, General Manager, Nerang Respite Care Assn

And, I wanted to let you know how important this is becoming for those involved. Your program has certainly sown some long term seeds of success!”

“Peter, the joy of seeing the smile on the face one of our young female staff members who is already 11kgs lighter and so much more energetic and positive since the start of your program is fantastic. Even Better is the positive change in some of the previously more negative staff members.”

“I have known Peter Doyle since the late 1990’s and I have always found his professionalism, personal manner, advice, coaching and counselling to be inspirational and insightful; his methods are innovative, creative and inspiring. Certainly exactly what I need in order to move forward at various points in time.
I have only recently been introduced to Nikki, yet somehow feel like I have known her much longer. Her enthusiasm and joy about fitness and health is contagious, and she really is a step-above the other personal trainers I have worked with in the past. I am very much looking forward to working with her into the future.
The benefit I am getting from having both Peter’s and Nikki’s skills and experience at my disposal is beyond words; through the combination of advanced psychology and personal training they are able to truly understand me and therefore get the best out of me to help me achieve my goals sooner rather than later – and have fun along the way. It certainly feels like things are starting to come together for me, and it won’t be long for the next level of wonderful personal results to start to show.
The wellness in the wilderness day was one of inspiration, faith, camaraderie and fun. Aspects of the day were physically challenging, others were spiritually enlightening, and some were just silliness with fits of laughter and fun, moving and connecting with my body in ways I haven’t done in a long time; it was definitely a thoroughly enjoyable and inspirational day.”
