According to the International Coaching Federation (ICF) coaching is the partnering of a coach with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximise their personal and professional potential.
What will the Coaching process look like?
Throughout our coaching journey together, we will have a number of meaningful conversations in which I will offer you a space to think out loud, reflect and come to new conclusions in a non-judgemental, safe environment. With the help of powerful questions I will guide, encourage and challenge you, to shine a light on any stumbling blocks on your way to achieving your goal and to see aspects of your journey from a different angle.
I believe in a holistic approach, addressing not just the situation you want to change, but also your life situation as a whole and the emotions connected to your journey forward. During this process we will not just look at what it is you would like to achieve and how you will get there but also at how you want to feel when you reach your goal.
The coaching sessions will help you to:
Clarify your goals
Identify and overcome any stumbling blocks
Turn fears into excitement
Set realistic milestones and action steps
Start moving towards living your best life
What happens between sessions?
I usually meet with my clients every 2 - 4 weeks to give them enough time to implement new learnings and take the action steps agreed to in the session.
You will leave each session with a number of action steps, which you will set yourself during our conversations as a way to achieve the next milestone required to reach your overall goal. During our following session we will then discuss and reflect on how you got on with your action steps. I might also suggest some additional exercises between sessions that will support you on your journey of discovery.
What I will ask of you.
The Coaching journey is yours and I will be there to support you all the way. In order to make this a success I would ask you to:
Show up and be punctual
Be totally honest with yourself
Be willing to put in the work required to reach your goal
Approach the journey with a positive outlook
What Coaching is not.
As a Life Coach I will never give you advice or mentor you. One of the key elements that I have learned from becoming a Coach is that there is no one-fits-all solution. What works well for me, might not work for you at all. Everyone is different and I strongly believe that the best answers and solutions are those we find within ourselves.
A Coach is also not a Therapist or a Counsellor. Whilst during our coaching sessions we might sometimes look to the past to enable learnings moving forward, we will mainly focus on the future and what lies ahead. If you feel there are serious matters in your past that would first need to be dealt with before you can move forward, then coaching might not be right for you at this point in time.
Coaching Services & Fees
Before you get started, I suggest booking a free 20-minute virtual tea & chat with me to discuss what you are hoping to achieve and how coaching can help you to get there.
All coaching sessions are held online via Zoom or Skype or at the Wellness Hub in Falmouth, Cornwall.
Should you decide that we are a good fit to embark on this journey together, you can book a coaching session at the rate of £55 per 60-minute session. All sessions are payable up front.
I have found that a client usually needs a minimum of 6 sessions to achieve their goal, but each person and goal is different and further sessions can be added as required.
Please note that I have a 24-hour cancellation policy. Sessions cancelled less than 24 hours before they take place are charged in full.
