I work with people through coaching to help them to make important decisions in their lives, and to maximise their performance in their everyday life or in their work. People come from all walks of life. You might be an individual who simply wants to get more out of their life. You might be a Professional who strives to do better in your job. Or you might be an organisation who wants to maximise the potential of your employee’s.
People bring their own reasons for wanting to work with a coach. They might be:
- Looking for a change in direction
- Finding their way through a relationship difficulty
- Wanting to manage their time better
- Coping with competing demands on their life
- Wanting to take the next step in their career
- Seeking to succeed in a challenging business or organisational problem
- Pursuing better outcomes
- Wanting to be a better boss
- Striving to give better presentations or be more confident when speaking publicly
- Simply wanting to be a better leader, manager or team member.
What happens if I come for coaching?
You will have the opportunity to talk through your reasons for taking up coaching, and what you'd like to get out of it, before the coaching relationship begins. I will negotiate with you the best place and time for sessions. Sessions usually last for between an hour and two hours and you will spend quite a bit of time during the first session exploring your expectations, agreeing how many sessions to undertake, and looking more closely at what coaching is. Coaching is a relatively short-term relationship. Meetings between you and your coach can be undertaken once a week or once a month and generally you will meet between four and six times (although it can be a longer term relationship). Of course, it is always flexible and will vary according to what you want to get out of it. I work with individuals and corporate clients (including significant work with the NHS and charitable organisations such as Macmillan Cancer Support).
