As a member of the International Coaching Federation I will always adhere to their Code of Ethics. This ensures that you will always be treated respectfully and without judgement, which is key in coaching.
Please contact me for a free, no obligation consultation call. I coach face-to-face, by telephone and Skype so geography is never a barrier. Parking is available close by for face-to-face sessions. My sessions tend to be fortnightly or monthly depending on individual circumstances. I am available to coach evenings and weekends.
I also provide a range of workshops that can be delivered to people of all ages and on a wide variety of subjects, some of which are detailed at the bottom of my profile.
With 15 years experience in working with large corporates across a number of different divisions - Customer Service, Marketing and Learning & Development I have a wealth of experience when it comes to the challenges faced in business/work life. In particular, I can support you in developing coaching/mentoring programmes and cultures, developing high performing teams, producing training needs analysis, training plans and solutions to meet your training needs. All of these are key areas of focus if you want to be successful and maximise results.
For those people who are ready to make a big shift in their life or lifestyle. You may be feeling unfulfilled and/or unhappy and are ready to transform your life. Are you working very long hours? Are you at the point of burnout? Are you missing out on seeing your children grow up? Have you been neglecting some important areas of your life for too long now? I can help you to take stock of your life, re-prioritise and organise your life so that you have time for the most important things in your life.
Lifestyle Coaching for Sports Professionals
Many people think that sports professionals lead a high flying and wealthy lifestyle without a trouble in the world, however, the reality is that they face a number of challenges throughout their career and having a supportive team around them is vital. I help sports professionals to focus on the areas of their life that are most important to them - examples being dips in confidence, coping with injuries, planning for and coping with retirement, finances, relationships, career transition, being released by clubs to name but a few. It's important that sports professionals feel comfortable reaching out for help and I am here to support you.
It's not just adults who face challenges in life! For young people, teenage years and young adulthood can be tough. Peer pressure, homework and exam stresses, career/university/college choices, employability skills, complex friendships, relationships, bullying, anger management, family life...and all of that on top of hormone and body changes. It's not easy! I will help by giving you the time and space to talk about the challenges you are facing, without judgement and without imparting any advice. I will listen and help you to come up with your own solutions to those challenges so that you are in control and feel it is the best way forward for you. You'll feel empowered and much happier about current life and your future.
