Paul Austin EMCC Work / Life Coach Practitioner
Hi, I'm Paul, and welcome to my Life Coaching profile!
My life experiences have led me to believe that sometimes we can use the help of trusted others to focus on what we really want from our working and home lives. That is one of the main reasons I trained and offer executive, career and life coaching.
My goal is to enable you to be ready to do better for yourself in whatever way you want. I can help you to get to the core of things that may be causing you frustration, heartache or pain. In order to do this, I offer to connect with you on a deep personal, confidential and trusting level. My priorities for you are understanding, empathy and a close working relationship to help you reach your goals.
So, here are the 5 steps we’ll take together to get to you where you want to be:
We look at what’s going on with you; the problems you’re facing and how you view the world
Together we question your assumptions, the positions you take and your current vision
Here we re-focus your thinking, perspectives, reactions to events and your personal goals
Now we’ll look at stretching and challenging you to help you develop and reach your potential
Here’s where it all comes together... we create an action plan and align your thinking, being and emotions so you’re ready to go out there and shine!
My personal one to one coaching packages are planned to suit your schedule, and can be face to face, on the phone or via Skype / FaceTime. Sessions are always documented and actions agreed and reviewed. I look forward to having an initial conversation with you!
All the very best, Paul
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained with TPC Leadership in their Coach Practitioner Course, a course that is offered under the guidance and control of the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC).
TPC Leadership is known for its pioneering and powerful coach training, and has strong associations with the Whitmore family, of which Sir John was one of the founding fathers of executive coaching in Europe. This course includes foundation coaching, Transpersonal Coaching, Systemic and Team systems and coaching Leaders.
I work with CEOs. Senior Managers, Leaders, Head Coaches of sports teams and anyone else who feels they can benefit from my coaching.
In addition, I have a Certificate in Management from the Open University, and a BA (Hons) in French with Italian. I tutor French GCSE and A Level and have a lot of experience in living, working and travelling in those countries.
Areas of coaching I deal with
Other areas of coaching I deal with
I specialise in helping people make significant improvements in the following areas:
- Personal growth and development
- Self-Confidence, assertiveness and self-esteem
- Helping New Managers and Leaders plan, develop and grow
- Personal and Work Conflict management
My coaching specialisms also include:
- Managers, Leaders and CEOs (current and potential) in Transition
- Managing Conflict and conflict resolution
- Performance Development Self-awareness and confidence building
- Realising your potential
- Leaders and Leadership Development
All initial conversations are free of charge and will include some coaching, so you have nothing to lose from talking and much to gain! Thereafter, whilst I do offer single sessions, I strongly believe that it is truly in your interests to consider signing up for a package of 4-6 sessions (sessions last between 45-90 minutes depending on your availability and requirements).
- Single session £75
- Four sessions £280
- Extra sessions on request
The reason I recommend packages is because, by allowing yourself time to consider, reflect and plan for the future over a 12 or 24 week period, means you can grow into our work together and what it can offer you. This is where and when you can access the real value of coaching, however it is of course completely your choice, the most important thing is that you feel that you are getting value from our time together.
I do not charge VAT or cancellation / postponement fees, and am happy to rearrange to suit your schedule. Likewise you can cancel the arrangement at any time, as you feeling comfortable and the coaching being in your interest are most important to me.
My clients tell me the results from our sessions have made a profound difference to them, and so you get a sense of how I work and what my clients think, I invite you to read below:
“Paul has been immensely helpful in coaching my development. I had been struggling with identifying a clear path forward and having the self-belief to start working in a new field. Coming from a working environment where everything seems to come from all directions in a random fashion, Paul helped me clear my mind and allowed me to see the success that was possible. I found that our sessions were highly practical too – it wasn’t just me opening up (although that helps the process) but Paul has a workbook of exercises that he can draw on and you never felt this was experimental but had immense value. Right from the get-go Paul was completely honest – reflecting back what he saw and immediately created a space for both of us to mull over the situations I was in and it felt like we shared and crafted what might be the best way forward."
"Patience is another word that springs to mind, Paul has that in an endless quantity! He also cares immensely and you feel that you have a life-long companion too, so the sessions might have stopped, but the connection remains.”
"Thank you so much for all your help over the past 2 months. I have had many excellent coaching experiences and I rate this one as one of the best. I loved the way you created a totally open, expanded space for me to think about some deep, hard things I was grappling with. I was dealing with something that has been part of my life and annoying me for years. You managed, by listening and sharing your observations with me, to help me gain new insights into the issue. You never forced me to rush through it in order to achieve an “outcome” and instead you allowed me to go deeper but move forward and consequently getting the best outcome I could hope for. Thank you so much. You have a great gift to share with the world.”
"My sessions with Paul opened my eyes to the advantage of Executive Coaching. Having someone to confer with confidentially on both a personal and professional level was of great benefit and allowed me to analyse myself and my work in a different light and set realistic and beneficial goals for myself. I would recommend taking on Paul as a coach to anyone looking to take the next step in professional development."
"Working with Paul over the last few months has helped my analyse and, in some circumstances, change how I approach situations at work. It has made me feel more positive and better equipped to manage my team and the work that I do".
