A Life Coach can help you move forward in ways that perhaps you hadn't considered - a focussed, confidential conversation with an unbiased person can help bring new perspectives to old issues.
A Life Coach will use challenging questions to help you reassess where you are, and then help you work out where you want to be.
I work on a one to one basis with clients, listening, questioning and helping them make decisions. Every individual is unique and faces different challenges in different circumstances - there is never a one-size-fits-all solution.
As well as being a fully accredited Life Coach I am also a qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist and, after discussion, I will utilise whichever of my skills best suit each client and their current situation.
Training, qualifications & experience
Prior to training as a Career and Life Coach I spent over thirty years working in theatre and television, and am particularly adept at understanding the specific stresses encountered by talented people in a highly-charged creative environment, as well as being experienced in working with people from all walks of life.
I am an Accredited NLP Practitioner and Master Practitioner, as well as a Licensed NLP Coach.
I have a diploma in Performance Coaching from Newcastle College, and have recently qualified as a Clinical Hypnotherapist through the Medical Hypnotherapy Exam Board.
I am a Professional Member of ANLP International CIC.
Areas of coaching I deal with
The initial, informal, session of about 30 minutes - in a neutral setting - is usually free.
Sessions thereafter are approximately 90 minutes long and are charged at £50 per session.
I have a room in central Ilkley from which I work, or alternatively, following the first meeting, if the conditions are favourable I can visit a client at home.
