Read about working with me and working together.
If you haven't had any coaching or mentoring before it is understandable that you may be feeling apprehensive and unsure of what to expect, however there is nothing to feel anxious about. I describe coaching as a guided conversation after which you will feel excited, motivated and empowered. (If you would like to understand more about Life Coaching, Business Mentoring and the difference between them, you can read more about them by clicking the links or their pages in the menu.)
It is important that you feel comfortable with your coach so that you are able to discuss matters openly; a coach should make you feel supported and at ease. Throughout our sessions I will listen to you in order to gain understanding and positively challenge you to broaden your perspective.
Ahead of committing to coaching or mentoring with me we will have a 15 minute consultation during which I will ask you questions in order to gain an overall understanding of what you wish to achieve through working with me. If at this stage I feel that you require more specialist help (e.g. Counselling or Therapy) then I will make this clear and if possible offer an onward referral. It is important that after our initial consultation we both feel that we can work together.
We will then agree a schedule of regular sessions taking place either via phone or Zoom/Skype. I recommend either weekly or fortnightly sessions depending on your goals and how much support you feel you will need.
In our first coaching/mentoring session we will establish what your goals are and agree a time-frame by which you will aim to achieve them. We will break the goal(s) down, agreeing a phased approach for you to complete each individual step/milestone. You will go away from each session with tools and techniques to achieve what has been agreed. During each session we will review your progress since the previous session and against the overall plan.
