There are so many factors that influence our day-to-day lives, we have many decisions to make and relationships to maintain whilst also trying to achieve a high level of personal wellbeing ... sometimes we need the time to stop and think and re-assess! Coaching allows us the space to regain clarity and confidence in who we are and where we are heading. In reality, during the course of our busy lives how often do we really allow ourselves to do this?
Coaching is a subject that I came into through my professional development which then quickly became a personal passion. Being able to access a Coach allowed me to spend time understanding myself, understand my thinking and to build confidence and belief in my capabilities. When I look back on this opportunity now I realise what a turning point it was for me! Such a positive experience led me to study, become a Coach and then build a career that I really love.
My core offering is a programme of 1:1 Wellbeing Coaching sessions, these sessions allow you to be open and honest and unpick your thinking in a non-judgemental and fully supportive, positive environment. The usual agreement is approx 6 sessions of up to 1hr.30min however this can be personalised as requested and time frames agreed to suit your schedule.
Further information about me and what I can provide is available on my website and blog.
I was also recently (Feb 2020) featured on BBC Radio Lancashire talking about the 'Quarter Life Crisis' which a great experience and an opportunity to talk about coaching and why it is such a great source of development and support.
I also have experience of group and team coaching and team building, along with experience of professional/ career coaching.
Training, qualifications & experience
I completed my Coach Training in 2015 with Lancaster University and am qualified to level 5, and have just over 150 hours experience, both of 1:1 coaching, group coaching and team coaching.
My part-time ‘day job’ is focused on providing ‘personal & leadership development’ within a large healthcare organisation. I love supporting others to reach their potential and also want to offer this possibility to everyone, regardless of their organisation or professional background - my focus is on 'Personal Development & Wellbeing' Coaching, which should be accessible to all.
Within my ‘day job’ I manage the Coaching Service provided by the organisation, provide supervision and support to all coaches involved with the service and also deliver our regular 2 day Coaching Skills training across the organisation.
I am also qualified to administer MBTI questionnaires (personality type development) and provide feedback along with HLM 360 Feedback.
I have a number of lovely, positive testimonials that I am happy to share on request.
European Mentoring and Coaching Council
EMCC UK is part of the Europe-wide European Mentoring & Coaching Council.
Together their aim is to promote good practice and the expectation of good practice in mentoring and coaching across Europe.
EMCC is an independent, impartial and non-profit making organisation.
Areas of coaching I deal with
I offer a free, initial ‘chemistry chat’ of up to 45 minutes to explore your topic for coaching, discuss expectations and the desired outputs for the sessions. This is totally informal and allows both coach and client to agree next steps and boundaries for the coaching relationship going forward.
Further to the initial discussion, individual sessions are up to 1 hour 30 minutes at a cost of £75. There is a discount available where a programme of 6 sessions is booked in advance.
Sessions are payable in advance. Cancellation fees will apply if less than 48 hours notice is given.
