What happens on first contact?
In a no obligation discussion by telephone or Skype, Susan explains in simple terms what coaching will involve. Coaching is a non judgmental, confidential conversation 100% focused on helping to unlock another person’s potential using a proven technique of careful Listening and Questioning. We discuss, in broad terms, what it is you want to use the thinking space for, for example, it could be around developing your career, yourself, your business or your relationships. We then mutually discuss if we want to go ahead with the first session.
What can I expect at the first Session?
Sessions are driven by you and we discuss what it is you want to achieve, by when and how. This provides an idea of coaching themes and an outline Personal Coaching Plan for you. There are always more options open to you than you may first think and when it comes to taking action a great deal depends on whether you have the WILL to want to do something - it will happen naturally and easily if you do. Typically we work together for 6-12 months depending on your needs and your goals.

"I worked with Susan as an Executive Coach for 6 months in late 2015 and early 2016 for issues with self-confidence affecting me both at work and at home. We gradually worked through my concerns, breaking each down and exploring positive actions I could take. After each session I completed a coaching log and identified objectives for the next session. Susan was able to provide me with several coping strategies, and pointed me towards other resources (such as further reading). I had experience of working with the Insights Discovery Colour Energies and Susan used these throughout the sessions to identify my strengths and build on them, which was invaluable. Susan's coaching skills helped me improve my performance in the job I was in at the time, but also gave me the confidence to apply for other roles, which previously I had found difficult. I was successful in attaining a new role in June 2016. I highly recommend Susan as an Executive Coach". HR Manager, Public Sector
"Susan has enlightened me today!! Wow! What an insight into how to effectively move forward in business and in life. I would highly recommend contacting Susan if you would like to gain more insight into your strengths and maximising them....I can see how fundamental this is to moving forward as a team or an individual business.
Lesley Collins, Regional Vice President, Arbonne International
"Susan's natural and positive approach to coaching will make you think differently about the possibilities available to you. She harnesses her emotional intelligence and experience to truly coach in an authentic way. if you get the chance to work with Susan, do it!" Karran Bonner, Brightsideinspiration
“On a personal level, Susan was supportive and challenging in equal measure to ensure I got the best for my own development. I was able to create time to think strategically and develop team structure. I can talk freely and in confidence around various situations and how I can develop myself to deal with challenging colleagues. I also completed an Insights Discovery Personal Profile, we discussed the outputs and my preferences, I found this invaluable in understanding how I interacted with other ‘colour energies’ and how I appeared to them. I will use this information when interacting with colleagues in future”. Senior Manager, NHS
"Thank you Susan, I've experienced one of the most valuable hours I have spent in a long time and your listening ear and encouragement of ideas is much appreciated". Chief Exec, Third Sector
“I began Coaching with Susan in early 2014. The results have been phenomenal. Over a six month period through our sessions we explored a range of career issues. Through Susan's emphatic and supportive solution focused approach I became equipped with the tools and strategies to overcome barriers, resulting in improved confidence at work, clearer direction and ultimately a promotion”.
