What is coaching?
We have all experienced an exceptional period of change in recent years. This has had a profound impact on how we work and live. It has created uncertainty and anxiety, but also the opportunity for change.
Coaching is not prescriptive, and I do not tell you what to do. In this way coaching is different from going to a consultant. Coaching sessions are based on the empowering idea that you have the solutions. My role is to enable you to find and implement those solutions. I work with you in overcoming the obstacles that may have been getting in the way. We often have an instinctive and deep-rooted sense of what we want, but that can get lost in the day to day or blocked by fear of change.
Coaching is also not counselling or psychotherapy, but it does often involve a profound exploration of your motivations and values. I create a safe space to do this and give you the tools to make powerful changes.

The coaching objectives are up to you:
Ultimately you choose the objectives that are meaningful for you. The tools and approaches that I use can be equally powerful in overcoming obstacles in both work and in your personal life. I work with both teams and individuals.
Key areas of focus include:
Better adapting to the fundamental changes in how we work.
Overcoming communication issues with individuals and in teams.
Developing more confidence in specific business contexts, for example in communicating to customers.
Developing individual confidence in overcoming obstacles to change.
Understanding and adapting to different working cultures.
I offer three types of Coaching:
1 to 1 Coaching. I work on your specific objectives.
Team Coaching. I work on the objectives of your team.
Group Coaching. I work on the shared needs of a unique group of individuals who are typically from different jobs or companies. This is often thematic in focus - for example the theme might be communicating with confidence to customers.
