My passion is helping others reach their full potential and to be the best and most content version of themselves. I can help if you're feeling stuck, lacking confidence, feeling stressed or just feel that you want to "do better". I have helped many people through stressful periods in their lives, supporting them to see the through the fog to move themselves forward. Others I have helped gain clarity on the next stage of their life journey.
I have always taken a very supportive role towards others as a trainer, facilitator, change manager and in life in general. This ultimately led me to train to be a coach to be able to support people more directly to be the best version of themselves.
I have a non-directive, flexible style and am a very good listener who is patient, empathetic and non-judgmental. Through my life and career I have gained a great understanding of the range of human responses to different situations. I am always striving towards unconditional positive regard for my coachees. This helps them to feel complete acceptance and that they are valued and respected.
I have experienced my fair share of traumatic life events which have strengthened my ability to understand other peoples viewpoints and increase my own emotional intelligence. Both of which are of great benefit to being an effective coach and being able to feel empathy with others. I am a parent of two young children and understand and appreciate the challenges of balancing home life with work commitments.
What happens at the initial session?
We will go through how you feel coaching can help you and we can clarify if coaching is right for you, and also that I am the right coach for you. We will also go through the contract to ensure we are both clear on expectations from each other.
How often will we meet?
This depends upon your needs. I regularly see people for between 4 and 6 sessions. You may need less or more. This will become apparent after the first few sessions.
We will meet weekly or fortnightly - as is your need. Sometimes you may want to move very quickly. Other times you may need more time between sessions.
Where will we meet?
We will meet in comfortable, private rooms in the centre of Long Eaton. If you would like to meet in your work setting, providing there are suitable rooms, we can easily arrange. Travel expenses will be attached to the hourly fee.
I will be available via email to answer any queries or give support should you need it.
"Bev is a fantastic coach, she listens deeply to hear you.
Through conversations Bev and I had I was able to acknowledge change was needed and deserved. I embraced a journey that took my career down a very different path that has connected me with my passions and strengths. Bev created a safe compassionate space for me to explore things that were very emotional, yet challenged and stretched me to do something about it. Thank you Bev for listening."
"Beverly puts you at ease the minute you walk through the door. Her smile is friendly and infectious and you can warm to her immediately. She has a warmth that encourages you to wrap yourself into, to feel safe and secure. She listens! With few words she will support you to find the answers that YOU need to move forward, to address your challenges."
“superb listener and completely empathetic in your approach….Her questioning is very insightful”, “so calm and collected in her approach.” .....very caring, a superb listener and empathetic while able to challenge in a calm and supportive way.
Ability to reflect, reframe, and clarify - “Bev, due to her style in delivery, is able to do this with ease”
“Bev has certainly mastered this (challenging). She does it in the nicest calmest way, with a smile on her face, but the challenge is very pronounced and not something you could avoid or talk around.” -
“good use of silence”. "Bev challenges in a calm and supportive way"
“Very useful, the session got me to consider the reality of my situation and the options that lay in front of me. I have carried out the agreed actions and this has led to a positive conclusion. “
