Ro Lavender- Change, Transition & Confidence Coach
Feeling ‘stale’, ‘stuck’ or wanting a different work life balance or some different friends are all signs that something needs to change. However, for all sorts of reasons, initiating that change may not seem to be straightforward! You may feel short of ideas or low on confidence. Working with me as your Coach will enable you to take time to focus on yourself, identify the changes you want to make, and get support to achieve them. Through the coaching process I will help you to examine any assumptions you may hold that are self-limiting, that impact on your work, business, career, friendships or relationships and are preventing you moving forward.
Am I ready for coaching?
You are ready to begin the Coaching process if you are not moving forward in one or more areas of your life or do not have the work life balance you would like and are ready to think and behave differently.
What coaching will do for you
Coaching increases self-awareness, self-confidence and motivation. It will increase also clarity of thought and as a result increase your career, business and personal effectiveness.
Why am I a coach?
What inspires me about the coaching relationship is that it fosters discovery, increases choice, and enables people to make new and different life and career choices. I find the fact that coaching can liberate people to take control of and redesign their lives exciting.
Being able to work with individuals of varying ages, diverse cultural and professional backgrounds, students and job seekers means that the work is both interesting and rewarding for me as a coach

The cost and number of coaching sessions depends on what the individual requires. Each session lasts about an hour.
I consider myself to be very fortunate to have found such an excellent match in Ro as a Coach. Her professional approach and expertise, combined with her warmth and humour, have provided the right environment for us to work together.
Ro has helped to bring new perspectives and understanding, especially in regard to how life events shape thoughts, feelings and behaviours, and the impact this can have on one's ability to move forward. Through mutual respect and trust, she has helped me to determine meaningful next steps.
I would strongly recommend Ro as a Professional Coach, who is great at creating the right balance between empathy and respectful challenge. I can envisage working with her again in the future in many different ways.
