Why come to Coaching?

Coaching is about assessing your goals and building realistic and achievable approaches to achieving them. This helps people from all professional and personal backgrounds improve their strengths and build upon their weaknesses to make the most of their lives.

Using a combination of relational, psychological and systemic coaching methods, I’ll help you unearth your strengths and use them to their full advantage. This will help you see where you may be holding yourself back and map the way forward.

I follow a tried and tested approach that revolves around us establishing a contract for our work together, which covers what you are looking to achieve and how you will know when you’ve got there. We then use this as the basis for our work together as we explore what is holding you back and come up with strategies and approaches to make your goals a reality.

There are three main things that I will aim to deliver for you:

A) Subjectivity: we all have different perspectives of the world – no one perspective is ‘right’ or ‘wrong’, but some perspectives are restrictive and can stop a person becoming who they want to be.

B) Empowerment: it is within everyone’s capability to adjust the limits of their own perspective. With the help of coaching, anyone can learn to open their mind if they wish.

C) Guidance: there is a difference between an instructor and a guide. An instructor shows a person exactly what to do, whereas a guide provides the tools and support a person needs to do something for themselves. A coach is a guide, not an instructor.

My coaching experience covers a range of industries and scenarios, but always has a positive impact on outcomes. Some of the situations I have experience impacting include:

  • Conflict and influence style and approach
  • Managing relationships
  • Step up to new challenges
  • Transitions and life stages
  • Adapting to and coping with change

I offer coaching face to face or remotely, over the phone or via Skype sessions. How we do it is up to you and this is something we set up at the contracting stage. Visit ‘Making Contact‘ to get in touch and find out more.
