What is Coaching?
Coaching is a powerful tool that can help you achieve your goals and aspirations. It is a structured conversation between a coach and a client, where the coach listens, asks questions, and inspires the client to take action towards their desired outcome.
During our coaching sessions, I will be there to support you every step of the way. I will help you to understand what's holding you back, identify your challenges, and develop a plan to overcome them. I will not give you advice, but rather encourage you to make your own decisions and take responsibility for them.
What coaching is not
Coaching is different from mentoring or counseling, and it's not about giving you advice but about helping you to find your own answers. If at any point it is determined that coaching is not the right fit for you, we will discuss alternative options to support your journey.
What benefits are there to having you as my coach?
Clarity - Getting clarity on what you actually want in life. I will help you to understand your values, what's important to you and how does that fit with your future goals.
Confidence - By working out what you want, you will feel more empowered to achieve and take that first step.
Overcoming Obstacles - We will work out together what is holding you back and how to use it to your advantage rather than feeling fearful.
Change - I will help you to acknowledge that it's never too late to change, just because a difficulty has been bothering you long-term, it does not mean that it cannot be tackled, starting now.
How to reach your goals faster - You will achieve your goals a lot faster than compared to if you were going it alone.
Accountability - I will hold you accountable for your progress, but not as a teacher telling you off at school or your boss chastising you at work. Think of me like an old friend who will be cheering you on but also challenging you with a different way of thinking.
What will happen during a session?
Coaching sessions are held either face to face or on Zoom. The usual procedure is the client will contact me to arrange a suitable date and time for the session.
During the session we will cover the following areas...
Review the previous session if applicable
Set the goal for that session
Consider where you are at the moment with this goal
Consider the options that are available to you to meet this goal
Agree on some actions
Summarise the session before completing the session
How long is a coaching session?
Each coaching session will take up to an hour and can vary between sessions.
Who else will know what has been said?
A coaching session is completely confidential. I agree to and comply with the Coaching Code of Conduct and only in extreme circumstances would this be breached (eg. the intent to cause harm to yourself or commit a criminal act.)
What would I need to prepare?
To make sure our time is productive, always come prepared with a goal or aspiration in mind that you would like to work towards. Always take yourself to an environment where you will not be disturbed, have a drink and a pen and paper to hand and anything else you think you may need.
