WHAT IS COACHING?

Coaching

Coaching is a joint venture in which we help you bridge the gap between where you are now, and where you want to be.

It provides a safe space for you to explore challenges, and the reality of your current situation, to dream big and determine what it is that you want to do in the world, to tackle the fears and doubts that are currently holding you back and to creatively explore how you can move yourself forwards and create change.

This is by all means something you could do on your own, but coaching can help you get there quicker, easier, more efficiently and more enjoyably.

You will emerge from any of my coaching sessions, be it just 1 hour or over 6months, with a heightened sense of self awareness, feeling clear on your challenges, knowing where you want to get to, with an action plan to start you moving in the right direction and feeling motivated and confident. The difference between 1 session and a six month programme is just a question of how big you want the transformation to be.


NLP

As well as a coach, I am a Neuro Linguistic Practitioner (NLP).

NLP is the practice of helping you become an excellent communicator, both with yourself and with others. I interweave these skills in with my coaching in order to create a deeper, more lasting impact that will continue to resonate in you long after we’ve finished working together.

Communicating with yourself: NLP enables you to change how you think and subsequently change your unhelpful beliefs, behaviours, thoughts and emotions that stop you achieving your full potential.

NLP hands you back control, enabling you to choose how you respond to different situations, rather than just following your same old patterns of behaviour.

Communicating with others: NLP helps you understand how you are communicating with other people and the impact you are having on them.

NLP can help you increase your: Impact, empathy, influence, confidence, motivation, persuasiveness, ability to build rapport & understanding of others and their motivations

My approach

Support. Challenge. Fun.

Support:  I create a safe environment, confidential and free from judgement where you feel able to be your most open and honest self.  I listen very well, so that you feel not only heard but also understood. You will never feel alone throughout this process, I will always be at your side to remind you of your strengths and capabilities when you’ve lost sight of them, and to help you tap back into your motivation.

Challenge: My job is to help you uncover your blind spots and so you can become the best you can be. To do this, with your permission, I will challenge you to be bolder, try different things, hold yourself to a higher standard and remain true to who you are and your mission.

Fun: I really enjoy what I do and I want my clients to enjoy what they do too. It is through enjoying the journey and having fun along the way, that we learn to laugh at ourselves and learn from our mistakes. We develop a positive mindset, looking for the blessings and opportunities in all that’s thrown our way. We become more human and more open, drawing others too us and bringing out the best in them too.
