If you are looking for organisational, leadership or career coaching for yourself or your team, that focuses entirely on you, gives you the space to breathe and is with an ICF qualified coach, you've come to the right place!
I'm based in Fleet in Hampshire, on the Surrey border. I can see you face to face or on video.
How often do you have the time to step back and focus on you? Just you. With no judgement. Just gentle curiosity and challenge. How much better would life be if you were clear on your values, your strengths, your ambitions and goals and what you need to do to achieve your dreams?
Through coaching, you can do just this. You are supported to gain clarity and self awareness as a person and as a leader - to set your goals, and to navigate challenges with a positive mindset and a clear vision for the future.
Are you ready?
I believe that all business leaders, aspiring leaders and business professionals want to do a great job. They want to perform at the highest levels and support their teams to grow and thrive. And I believe they can do it!
I also know it isn’t easy!
Perhaps as leaders or professionals, we haven't had the opportunity for the support or development we would have liked as we’ve progressed in our careers. If we have had development, the textbook methods of ‘best practice’ don’t seem to work, or don’t feel right.
As leaders and professionals, we are also human; we come to work with our own thoughts, feelings, and experiences and it can be very lonely. Being a leader or business professional also usually means being constantly busy.
When was the last time you had space just for you? To think and understand, without any judgement, about how you perform, how you want to show up for your team and colleagues, how you support your team and, most importantly, how you are true to yourself and support yourself?
As a leadership and performance coach, I create the space for you to explore and make sense of your professional and personal world. You deserve to be confident, clear and happy in your role; knowing that you have the skills and tools to face any challenge head on and manage it successfully.
I work with business leaders and professionals who are ready to build their self-awareness, self-confidence, professional and leadership skills and to step fully into their roles with a sense of positivity and optimism.
Many people who come to coaching for the first time are surprised to find that they aren't given the answers by their coach. They are also surprised that they do most of the talking! Don't worry, it's not unusual to experience this and this is completely normal in a good coaching session. Your coach doesn't have the answers - you do! However, as your coach, I will be with you every step of the way.
In a session you can expect:
I believe in you. Are you ready to find out how I can support you through coaching with a free, no obligation introduction meeting?
Please contact me if you cannot find an answer to your question.
Coaching is an interactive experience where we discover your goals and your passions and use them to help you travel down a path to the life you want. It is space for you to explore without judgement. It is not me telling you what you should do. You are empowered to discover what is best for you.
Our coaching sessions are completely confidential and are between you and me. There would only be a couple of very rare exceptions to this which I would discuss with you wherever possible - to protect you or others or to report serious illegal activity.
That really depends on you personally - what you bring to the sessions and your commitment to work on progression and changes both in and between sessions.
Yes, I am trained in integrative coaching on a comprehensive course accredited by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and I have taken ICF accredited certificates in Stress and Wellbeing, Leadership and Organisational and Career Coaching. I use reflective practice and mentoring to continue to develop my coaching skills.
We will have a free introductory call, in advance of any sessions, to talk about what you are looking for from coaching and to check we are on the same page and I am the right person to support you right now. Sessions usually happen via video link and last for around an hour, and we can talk about this in our introduction session. In the sessions, you will do most of the talking.
That really depends on you and what you want to do. Many people will find that taking some time for reflection on the insights they have from sessions is useful. Some people will want to do some research and find out more about the topics they are interested in and others may want to use tools. Where it is appropriate, I can suggest some tools and it would be entirely up to you to decide if you would like to use them or not.
People usually find that a series of 8 sessions works well for them and this is my standard offering. For some people, there could be more or fewer sessions, and could even be a one off session for very specific topics. Again, this is something we would discuss at our free introduction meeting.
Contact me for a no obligation, free introductory call to discuss how I can support you with coaching today.
