Jacqueline Davis - Executive leadership and Psychological Life Coach
It is part of adult development that we create patterns of thinking and behaving that help and protect us at critical times in our lives. These strategies become automatic unconscious behaviours that can help or hinder us from achieving our goals and reaching our full potential. We may not notice that we are doing this but we will be repeating thoughts and behaviours that keep us small, safe and away from achieving our dreams.
Working with a psychological coach will help you identify these blind spots and help you change the patterns that are holding you back from living your life to the full.
My coaching will help you to;
- identify limiting and empowering patterns of thinking and behaving
- expand awareness of the choices that are available in every moment
- increase your confidence, happiness, resilience and well-being
- overcome anxiety, negative self-talk and self-doubt
- develop the courage to set and achieve new empowering goals
- change careers, gain promotion and overcome workplace challenges
- develop strategic thinking and the confidence to lead organisational change
- identify and consolidate or expand into a later action logic
- start up and/or grow your business
I am a Chartered Director and Fellow of the Institute of Directors. I was Chief Executive of a media training organisation for 18 years. I have over 28-years experience supporting companies and individuals to create the change that they want.
My coaching is;
- humanistic - I hold you in unconditional positive regard and provide a safe, nurturing and non-judgmental space for you to explore who you are and grow into your potential
- relational - I use myself as an instrument of your learning using a wide range of psychological and management and leadership techniques and theories
- somatic - helping you to become more in tune with your body and identify and manage stress triggers
- systemic - I help you recognise and break family and work-place patterns that might be holding you back
- transpersonal - I work with the whole self.
I offer a free no-obligation chemistry session. A coaching programme is tailored to your needs and budget. It can be face-to-face or over the internet. Coaching can take place in a location convenient for you. This might be a private meeting space, a walk in nature or visit to an art exhibition. Together we will agree new and novel ways to expand your thinking, increase your awareness of opportunities and your confidence to achieve.
When you change the way you think and feel about things your reality changes and you achieve your desired goals effortlessly. I have witnessed many clients achieve amazing results in just a few sessions and I would love to help you do the same.
I specialise in leadership development with the option of a leadership development profile assessment and debrief at the beginning of the coaching programme. This is an opportunity to make sense of where you are in your leadership development and your 'action logic' or stage of meaning-making.
My clients include Telefonica, The Big Lottery Fund, The Frontline Organisation, Institute of Directors, Clore Leadership Foundation, NCVO Big Assist, Ravensbourne College, Mind, Mencap and many housing associations, local authorities, charities and small businesses.
Individuals include executives, small business owners, senior managers, GPs, social workers, coaches, therapists, performers and company directors.
