Work With Me
My Coaching Services
I work with career-minded professionals and business owners who want to overcome work-related stress, worry and self-doubt, so they’re able to perform well confidently and consistently, develop a successful career or business while enjoying what they do, and feel happy and fulfilled at work and in life, as a result.
Whether you are a self-funding individual, a business owner or a company-sponsored employee, there are a number of ways to work with me:
- One to one coaching and mentoring, in person or online (using Zoom)
- Group coaching for business development or stress management, offered in-house or in an “open” format for you to join as an individual
- On a one-day workshop – again, offered in-house or in an “open” format.
One to one coaching is always totally flexible to ensure it meets your needs – I use a range of evidenced, psychologically-based coaching approaches appropriate to your situation, personality and preferences, and offer a range of programme lengths to ensure you get a good balance between cost and outcomes.
Please contact me to find out more about cost and the different ways we can work together, or explore a bit further while you’re here.
How does coaching work?
From the bottom of my heart, I believe that nobody will ever know you or what you need better than you yourself. I believe you have, or can find, all the answers to the problems and issues you face in your life – even if you don’t know it yet.
Right there in your heart of hearts, or somewhere deep in your brain…or maybe somewhere in the centre of your tummy…you have everything you need to work out where you need to go, what may be stopping you from going there and work out how you’re going to get there.
But sometimes, especially when you are busy living a crazy manic life, these answers are firmly hidden away and take a bit more digging to reach. Among other things, getting to the right answer means asking yourself the right question in the first place…not too easy when your head is full of a million and one to-do lists.
Which is where I come in.
As your coach, I won’t be setting goals for you, or solving all your problems by giving you all the answers.
No, I’ll be helping you work all that out for yourself. Because I believe setting your own goals, on your own terms, choosing your own direction and deciding your own answers will always be more successful and make you happier than following someone else’s plan or ideals.
And it will also leave you having developed a whole new set of skills and approaches that you can use time and time again in future.
What I will do is everything I possibly can to make sure you feel motivated, energised and confident about achieving the changes you want, and at the same time comfortable, supported and safe as you explore the things that aren’t working, put plans in place to get them working and then do the hard part – acting and doing what it takes to actually get the change you are after.
I will listen (hard) and encourage you to think really deeply. Although we will focus on the present and future and on the actions you need to take to move forward, we will sometimes explore things from the past, to help work out what might be making you stuck, or what is most likely to work.
It might get emotional, and I will support you and keep encouraging you when that happens.
I will find exercises for us to do together that will help unlock your thinking, to get you certain about that you want and what you don’t. Frankly, I’ll do use, find or develop whatever tools we need to get you on the track to happiness and success.
But mostly, I will ask you questions. Lots of questions. They will be inquisitive, tough and sometimes very challenging.
That’s because I want the best for you, and I want you to achieve lasting results, which means taking you out of your comfort zone and being honest about what is causing a problem and honest about what could like up ahead, knocking down roadblocks that are in your way and getting rid of hang-ups and deep-seated beliefs you hold that are stopping you from moving forward.
In fact, honesty is probably the most important thing of all and I will do all I can to make sure we build an honest and open coaching relationship together, all in the name of making sure you become what you want to become and achieve what you want to achieve in your life.
