Is work getting you down and you feel like you just can't cope?
Are you facing major changes like redundancy or retirement, and feeling anxious?
Perhaps you are stuck in a rut and want to do something else?
Do you want to improve your business skills?
Are you a young adult, or a parent of a young adult, who is struggling to decide what to do with their life?
My work-life coaching can help you make change happen.
So, how does it work?
I start with the belief that all individuals have the ability to address and resolve their own issues if they approach them with the right mindset. However sometimes help is needed and this is where my coaching will help. My approach is underpinned with a set of tools and models that I use when working with individuals. This enables me to support them to explore their goals, look at their current situation, identify the changes they need to make, develop action plans, and learn from their actions.
Life coaching can be useful for: making career changes, facing transition such as redundancy or retirement, improving personal performance and team performance, developing new ways of working, building confidence and self awareness, tackling difficult work issues, improving relationships, or achieving a better work-life balance.
Training, qualifications & experience
I completed the Institute of Leadership Management (ILM) level 7 certificate in Executive Coaching and Mentoring in May 2010. This was shortly after I took voluntary redundancy from my job as a senior manager in the public sector. Coaching had helped me a lot in my job. I found that, by taking a coaching approach, staff were much happier, felt more in control, and were more innovative and productive. I knew that this was an area that I wanted to develop more and have been fortunate in that I now have the opportunity to concentrate on this full time.
My other qualifications include a BA in Social Science, an MA in Housing Studies, IDeA Certificate in Leadership and the Professional Qualification in the Therapeutic Use of Mindfulness
I have coached clients in numerous areas but tend to concentrate on business, career, and work-life balance issues, as well as those affecting young adults. I also volunteer for the Careers Development Group where I provide coaching to long term job seekers, helping them to improve their confidence and motivation, their CV's and interview skills.
I am a Member of the European Mentoring & Coaching Council (EMCC). I regularly attend the London Coaching Network which helps me to keep up to date with developments in the coaching world, and to learn from the experience of others
Areas of coaching I deal with
The initial half hour consultation, either by telephone or face to face is free. Thereafter my fee is £45 per hour for face-to-face coaching. This also includes access by e-mail or telephone between sessions.
I have found, by experience, that the frequency and number of coaching sessions depends very much on the complexity of an individual's issues and needs. I therefore do not ask clients to pre-pay or sign up for a set number of sessions in advance. I simply require payment for each session on the day, and we can be flexible as to how many sessions you require and when.
I work from two addresses:
13 Denner Rd, Chingford, London, E4 7SQ
10 Alpha Place, South Road, Saffron Walden, CB11 3DJ
I tend to practice face-to-face as I have found this to be the most effective method of coaching. I am willing to travel to clients if they are within a reasonable distance from either of these two addresses.
I appreciate that some people may have difficulty making appointments on weekdays, therefore I do have some availability for evening and weekend sessions.
