If you’re wondering what coaching is about, I offer introductory, no-obligation calls which include a short coaching session. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to try it out.
Coaches vary a lot – so here are a few words about my approach and how it works:
It’s a space for you to get clear on what’s going on and what your best next steps are
It’s not about me giving you advice – it’s about you discovering what you really think. In coaching, your own thoughts get room to breathe, and you get to trust your own instincts more – or be challenged…
It’s confidential and non-judgemental.
I use a range of questions and approaches to help you get where you want to be. (If you’re into models and psychology, these include: Cognitive Behavioural Coaching, Transactional Analysis, Narrative Coaching, Clean Language, Non Violent Communication and others).
It’s a partnership – the space works best when you want to change something. You don’t need to even know what exactly that is, but being up for change is the main thing. What I do is to structure the sessions, ask tailored questions and hold up a mirror so that you can see yourself and your situation more clearly.
It is often fun! You might not expect that, as coaching is a space for tackling tough issues. But it also often includes laughter – something about being listened to, having lightbulb moments, realising there is a hopeful way forward is can often release relief, recognition and joy.
- Qualifications: I trained with Animas, a world-leading coaching school which specialises in transformational life coaching.
After an initial taster session, you can decide whether to begin with an initial block of 6 sessions, usually one every two weeks, but sometimes weekly. We’ll begin by unpacking what you are currently facing, and then spend sessions 2-5 exploring alternative ways forward. In session 6, we’ll focus on how you can sustain change after the coaching has ended, or whether you would like to continue. I also offer less regular “top up” sessions after the 6 sessions.
