1:1 Coaching Programmes

I primarily aim to support people to move forward on work or business related issues. Although this emphasises solution of an issue, coaching intends to support the clients' self-learning. Together I hope we can work on all aspects of your performance or personal development, including leadership, collaboration and motivation.

1. I want you to be clear about coaching. If you have not used a professional coach before, let's discuss your expectations and aims (telephone/Skype/Zoom) .

2. I want you to be comfortable you will not spend a lot of money before testing you can get value from coaching, so I only charge £20 for an initial coaching session with new contacts. Email me a topic you'd like to work on when you're ready.

3. I aim to be flexible about session frequency and length so the cost is under your control. If you're familiar with coaching and want to do lots of self-reflection yourself outside of the sessions, maybe you can get down to 15minutes. If you want to do lots of thinking in the session, then half hourly and hourly sessions are more common. Please ask me about my standard rates. (Virtual sessions using Zoom are the most cost-effective.)

4. Always, the client sets the agenda and we are both free to give feedback on what is or isn't working.

1:1 Coaching supervision

I am very honoured to support coaches up to ICF ACC level. I enjoy working with those starting their own practice because they have much to juggle in business as well as working with different clients.  I want to work with those coaches who are aiming to do their best for their coachees' learning. I also aim to give feedback according to the coach's own coaching model. Ask me for an initial coach supervision questionnaire if interested in a coach supervision session.

See this [academic] article for how to "enhance coaching supervision over time [:] adopting a positive mindset, co-creating the relationship, participating actively in the process and undertaking supervisor training" (Sheppard, 2017, p117).

Peer Group Coaching

Group coaching can make coaching more affordable, but requires that everyone is willing to act as coach. This means being staying objective, listening intently and asking relevant questions without offering advice. If you have a group of like-minded people who would like to improve some aspect of their work, let's discuss facilitation.  (I have two groups at the moment, including a Business Support Group for microbusiness owners.)
