Is coaching right for you?

Are you looking for something but don’t quite know what yet?

Do you want to make changes but don’t know how?

Coaching could be for you.

The key question to ask yourself is: “am I committed to change?”

Commitment means making:

(a) the time and space for yourself to entertain new possibilities, and

(b) the effort to investigate those possibilities.

How it works

Coaching is conducted face-to-face in Central London and our first telephone chat is completely free, without obligation and will answer most of your preliminary questions.  Evening slots are available though limited.

Your first step is to think about what you would like to get out of the coaching process.  How would you finish the following sentence in 10 words or less:

"I want coaching to help me... "?

This will help us work out how many sessions, with what focus, are right for you.  The average client books eight sessions, and some of the most common issues revolve around confidence, career change and finding a sense of purpose.

 

Sessions are typically conducted weekly at a mutually convenient time and location in Central London.  Each session will have a 'theme' and will end by agreeing some homework for you to do around this theme.  The homework may involving thinking, writing or trying something out, but will always be comfortable enough not to be scary and challenging enough to help you grow.  The next session will then review the homework and how your week has been, before moving on.

Towards the end of our time together, we will start to think about how you will take things forward and integrate all the positive outcomes into your daily life.

 

Choosing your coach

There are several key questions to ask yourself about ANY new coach:

  • What qualifies them to be a coach?
  • What experience do they have?
  • Do they have any relevant qualifications?
  • Do you like them?!

Good rapport will be a crucial factor in ensuring your coaching is successful.

Outcomes and effects

An important part of the coaching process is understanding what you would like to get out of it.  In fact one of the areas we will cover is 'goal setting' for those areas of your life you want to get into shape - so it would be strange not to set goals for our time together too!

So in order to be happy with the coaching results we need to know (a) what our starting point is and (b) what we are aiming for.  As everyone is different, this makes describing these things pretty subjective: How do you define happiness? How can you put satisfaction on a scale?  How can you decide that you will be feeling a certain way by a specific date?  These things are difficult to pin down, so your initial consultation will get you thinking about them.

Outcomes will be always be defined by you, with guidance from me to ensure that they are realistic.

Ultimately it’s about being control instead of feeling lost; becoming focussed, where you are undecided; feeling confident instead of unsure. Being more sure of who you are, what you’re about and what you want from life.
