One to one Coaching is a powerful way of accompanying people on their ‘journey’, whether focused on their work, professional or personal development. It enables change in a positive and supportive manner.

What is essential to the relationship between the client and coach is trust and confidentiality. A client must feel safe in the space given for the coaching  in order to be able to express themselves openly and develop.

Coaching is an effective means of development-

  • It is focused on achieving specific goals for an individual or team
  • It supports people in creating their future through identifying and working towards a vision
  • It is personal, individualised and carried out in real time with real time actions being required of the client.
  • It brings faster results and is more cost effective than traditional training or consulting

 I offer coaching in the following areas:

  • Executive and leadership coaching
  • Career coaching
  • Personal and Professional Development

Here are some of the challenges that I have coached around:

  • Leading/handling a major change
  • Developing strategy
  • Developing a vision and engaging others in this vision
  • Clarity over future direction
  • A need to re-assess life and /or career
  • A need for specific help with a particular skill such as delegating to staff
  • Determining how to use your full potential
  • Needing a boost to motivation and/or morale
  • Support in building a business
  • Developing a personal brand

Coaching is a powerful way to boost employee morale and engagement. 


Coming from the Positive Psychology domain, strengths coaching is proving to be highly effective in supporting people on their journey to change. By focusing on how their strengths can be leveraged rather than how they need to overcome weaknesses, clients become energized and empowered to move forward.

We are now working with a strengths inventory, Strengthscope which has been developed by the  UK based Strengths Partnership.

This identifies your key strengths and takes these as a basis for moving forward in a more motivating, effective way.

This approach has been underpinned by extensive research. To read more about this approach click on the link:  Strengthscope.

My coaching programs are tailor-made and usually last 3 to 6 months, but can be longer or shorter. Coaching can be done face to face or by telephone/skype or a mix of the three. Each session will last about an hour although face to face typically may be longer than telephone sessions.

A typical program may look something like this;

  • Initial assessment of individual client to evaluate work and  life needs and establish goals. This may also involve, if appropriate, the clients manager. This can be a powerful way to gain the support of a manager in supporting the client through the coaching process, and will also add insights into the initial areas for work with the coach.
  • Two sessions per month of coaching in the appropriate format (face to face, Skype or  telephone)
  • Continuing telephone and email support
  • Tools and exercises to help the successful achievement of goals
  • Ongoing strategies determined for the end of the coaching relationship

One off review sessions

Sometimes all we want is a one off session where we can review where we are now and where we are going.

This will be useful for helping re-orientate ourselves. Typically such a  session will last 2 to 3 hours and would involve reviewing your objectives, your vision of the future and issues that have caused you to get stuck.

At the end of the session you will have found a way forward, reignited your motivation, in order to step right back into your journey.
