What Type of Coaching Do I Offer
Every Coach has an area of specialism. I focus on Career Coaching.
Coaching is all about moving from a place of stagnation to one of significant movement and growth. There's no secret formula and there's no magic wand.
It takes commitment, it takes an open mind but fundamentally it takes a willingness and a desire to change.
I can see when someone is hiding, saying one thing but meaning another, or in conflict between the angel on one shoulder and the devil on the other. Both are vital to your success but the key is in balancing which one stands taller.
I coach people:
Who have been searching for work for some time.
Who have had a prolonged absence from the working environment; on maternity leave, long term illness, caring for others or staying at home while the children have grown up.
Who want to start planning for that career move to the next level, maybe have interviews or promotion boards coming up, who are fed up of seeing other people promoted in front of them or moving into roles that they know they’re better suited to.
Coaching is all about caring for and nurturing yourself, investing in your future. Your personal and professional life are inextricably linked; what happens in one area has a material impact on the other and you cannot separate the two, however much you'd like to. We’ll look at all aspects of your life or your business and give you the power, the strength and the tools to make the changes you're striving to make, and more importantly as I've already said - to sustain them for the long term.
How Many Sessions Will You Need?
Coaching relationships are in the main short term and focused on specific problems. For individuals we may come to a natural end after a few weeks or months or you may want and need longer. You may come back for one or two sessions each time you have a different issue - it really is different for everyone and we'll work together on what is right for you. For businesses it may need just a single longer session with follow ups and specific additional interventions over time if wanted and needed.
I coach people from all walks of life and from all parts of the world so it doesn't matter if you're 5 miles away or 5000.
I offer face to face, telephone and online coaching (Teams audio/video, WhatsApp, FaceTime). Each person and business will have a different preference and the one most appropriate for you is the one that makes you feel comfortable and safe. Your particular type of coaching will be mutually agreed but each one works just as well as another. Coaching over the phone means using a different set of senses to those used face to face, and can be very effective where there's a distance involved between coach and client or where face to face isn't preferable on religious or personal grounds.
'Career coaching with Neil has made a process that seemed incredibly daunting and unclear into a set of simple steps. After a few sessions the fog that surrounded how I could make a career change had been lifted through making clear and achievable goals.
A process that had taken me several years in studying and figuring out on my own was reduced to a matter of months before a successful application and job offer. This experience has literally changed my life.'
'Provided a safe environment to give a voice to some of the inner turmoil that I held but didn’t have an outlet for'
'A soul-searching journey that drew out my true nature and aspirations'
'Neil provided the right focus and necessary support to work positively towards my goals and ambitions'
