What is coaching?
Put simply, coaching is helping you to see where you are now, determine where you want to be and then helping you get there. My coaching sessions are bespoke to each client and I work with you to ensure you get the most from our sessions together. For one client this might be very goal focussed, setting tasks each session to ensure you progress and for another client this might be more focussed on having 1 hour to openly talk to a non-judgemental, impartial coach in complete confidence.
Is there a difference between life, career and business coaching?
Life, business and career coaching are all very similar in that each involve confidential, non-judgemental conversations to help you progress. In life coaching this progression might be around what you want to do with your life or helping you with a difficult situation or decision at home. In career coaching this might be around getting a promotion, changing career or finding a good work life balance. In business coaching this might be around how to grow your business financially or how to decrease the stress you feel in running your business. These can often overlap and I have experience in supporting clients with each of these areas.
Do you do sessions in person?
The majority of my sessions take place via zoom, most of my clients have busy lives and appreciate not having to travel to meet. Having online video coaching sessions also allow clients to reach me from around the U.K I have worked with clients from Birmingham to Cardiff to London and beyond. I have some limited availability for in-person life coaching, career coaching or business coaching sessions in South London and Surrey so please contact me if you would like more information on in-person coaching.
What are your qualifications in coaching?
I am a certified life coach with a certificate in life coaching which is accredited by the National Counselling Society (NCS). I also strongly believe in continued growth and development and have therefore undertaken various courses to ensure my knowledge and skills in coaching are up to date in order to give my clients the best possible experience. This has included courses and modules which are accredited by the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC) and International Coaching Federation (ICF).
How do I know if I will benefit from coaching?
Results will vary from person to person depending on a variety of things such as how much time you put into your personal development between sessions, how open and honest you during sessions and how willing you are to act on things which come up for you in sessions. Having said this, all of my clients to date have given me positive feedback and stated that they have benefitted from our working together (please see the 'client stories' tab for more information). I have no doubt that if you turn up to every session, complete actions between sessions and push yourself outside your comfort zone, even by just 1% that you'll see results. It is very important that you are happy with your decision to progress with any coach and that you feel confident that you will find working together beneficial. I will always book in a free, no-obligation consultation video call with any potential client to have a chat and ensure they are confident they will benefit before committing any spend.
How do I work with you?
I currently have three ways in which we can work together; through fortnightly 1-1 coaching, through my core programme 'road to happy' which includes a toolkit of resources and access anytime workshops as well as one-to-one sessions and through in-person and online workshops. I also provide bespoke corporate or group workshops- get in touch for more information.
