If you don’t change anything, what do you expect to change?

Your Goals
Your Future
My Support

Each coaching experience is unique – what does yours need to be?

In the years that I’ve been coaching, and the various clients I’ve coached, I’ve never yet had the same session twice.  My training and experience give me a wealth of tools at my disposal to help clients as needed; which allows us to pull whichever tool out of the bag that fits your needs today!  Even when presenting similar issues, similar circumstances, the nuances of you as a client means that the right session is built around you.

This is part of my process.  Coaching doesn’t happen in the abstract, we use real-life situations and build your future – whichever coaching path you’re on.

Are you looking for a coach?

If you’re looking to get started on coaching for the first time or perhaps just looking to try someone new, I’d be glad to arrange a chat and see if we’re a fit!  A great match between coach and client makes all the difference, so neither of us want to jump into a commitment without getting to know each other a little.

Either book a chat directly or email me:

FAQ

on Coaching

Is it therapy?

Absolutely not.  In fact, if at any point I feel a coaching relationship is veering towards mental health needs, I refer elsewhere.

It’s a resource for your professional life.  A way to apply your knowledge and experience to your life, but with guidance and proven techniques to help you achieve your maximum potential

Is it all “touchy-feely” stuff?

This, like most things, depends on the client.  

I value a connection to emotional intelligence and do aim to help clients in all areas of their lives.  That said, we’re not looking to play catch with your inner-child or explore your spiritual fantasies!

This is non-directive performance coaching – so if emotions, spirituality or anything similar is important to you in that area we’ll bring them in.  If they aren’t a factor, we’ll probably never touch on them

on Logistics

Where do you coach?

I prefer in-person coaching to virtual coaching (which you can learn about here), so often that means a meeting room or private office space (ideally not your working space)

How long/often are sessions?

Again, this is a variant on the client.  The most common is 90 minutes twice a month.  Some clients prefer more frequent sessions (especially those who appreciate accountability coaching or reinforcement) and others prefer just to meet monthly. 

It’s something we discuss at the beginning of our relationship – and something that can change depending on what works best for you.

What do I need to provide?

For the most part – openness, honesty, and commitment.  Come to the sessions to engage and be ready to look at your situations from as many sides as possible. 

What are my responsibilities outside of sessions?

Most sessions end up with a short set of actions for you to take – but in the vast majority of these, they’re tasks within your day-to-day life which we’ve discussed in the session.

A couple of days before the session you’ll get an email asking to complete your coaching prep form (a few questions that take a couple of minutes) asking what you’d like to work on this week.  This allows you to come prepared and for me to be equipped with any techniques or ideas that might help.

After the session, you’ll get a copy of my notes with a chance to give feedback (a great way to improve your sessions) and you just sign and done.

on Company Coaching

Can you come and coach our staff?

Yes! I can.  You won’t find lots of information about it on my site as it’s a delicate area.  It’s a 3-way relationship between myself, your company, and the coachee – so the potential to judge or misunderstand who is the priority gets difficult.

Drop me an email if you’d like to know more.

Do you coach as part of staff disciplinary?

No. Absolutely not.  This is one of the main reasons you won’t find much about company coaching on my site – this concept gets everything messy.

Coaching must always be a voluntary process to increase performance or enhance an element of your team’s work.  It can’t be forced, mandated, or used as a threat if you want to see real results.

on Subjects

How rigid is the subject coaching areas?

All my coaching is fairly fluid.  If you’ve opted for leadership coaching but are struggling with an unassociated dilemma, we can happily spend a session on that without concern.

Often times, we see links between issues in our lives anyway – so perhaps the item is more related than you know!  Either way, our lives don’t happen in a vacuum and when you’d like support in one area, the other don’t turn off.

Do you offer personal, relationship, or life coaching?

No, I don’t.  I focus on business and professional lives in my coaching (though personal matters come up and are welcome to be addressed in sessions).

If you want specific support coaching on your personal life, relationships or similar, I recommend TJ Gibbs at The Love Coach.  TJ and I have worked together for many years and she has my highest recommendation for her abilities as a coach.

Ky Teasdale – Business Coach, Hemel Hempstead

So, am I right for you? Maybe yes, maybe no.  I realise the typical coach thing to do is scream Yes! Of course, I can help anyone! but as simply optimistic and fluffy as that might be, I’m too much of a realist to believe it.

If you’d like to find out…

a little about me

With over ten years of on-the-ground branding and marketing experience, a wealth of CPD (I love learning, so continuing professional development is a core attribute of mine), combined with my qualifications in coaching, brand strategy, and leadership; I feel confident that I can help almost anyone interested in my coaching range.

Phew.. long sentence! Deep breath… and…

My style of coaching is quite blended – which makes it hard to explain.  The simple version is that I work best tailoring to each client – adjusting my “toolkit” appropriately.  Some of those tools include assessments, some are questioning techniques, whilst others are physical activities.
