What is Coaching?
Coaching is partnering with Clients to help them maximise their personal and professional potential.
What does a Coach do?
A Coach works with you through areas of your life where you feel stuck and identifies where you might want to make changes, offering guidance and an open perspective.
What am I going to learn?
You may learn tools and techniques you can apply to create change in your life. You may learn to create awareness of your thought processes and how to move beyond your fears.
What's the difference between coaching and counselling?
Coaching helps you to set and achieve goals drawing from your own skills as well as the coaches.
Counselling helps you to identify problems and work towards moving beyond them using a therapeutic approach.
I am qualified as a Life Coach and in counselling skills so I'm able to use my experience to help you in both areas.
How many sessions will I need?
That is ENITRELY up to you. Some clients find clarity after one session, some clients like to book a block and work towards a specific goal, some clients like to have regular ongoing sessions to have that continued support and motivation.

Will I see results?
Coaching is a partnership with Coach and Client and as long as you are motivated to put the steps into place that you discover in the coaching process, you will see results.
Do you guarantee privacy of information?
ABSOLUTELY! I am a member of the Association of Coaching and adhere to their Global Code of Ethics. This means that all information shared between Client and Coach is strictly confidential and all data kept private.
How much are sessions?
£50 per 60 min session
£235 for a 5 session programme (£47 per session)
£450 for a 10 session programme (£450 per session)
£40 per 60 min session for spotlight and equity members

How do I pay?
After you have booked a session via my calendar I will send you an invoice with details to pay via bank transfer.
Can we chat before I book?
Definitely! I have a FREE 15 min chit-chat option on my calendar for that exact reason. This means we can meet via Zoom and go through why you are considering coaching and get to know eachother. From there you can then decide to move forward and book a 1:1 session.
Can I have coaching online?
Yes! In fact nearly all 1:1 sessions are online now to save time and money on travel and to keep the cost of sessions down as there is no additional room hire costs.
What is CBT?
Cognitive Behavioura Therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that helps people to change how they view their thoughts and behaviours.
It is an effective treatment for mental health issues such as anxiety and depression.
It works on the principle that thoughts, emotions, physical sensations and behaviours are all interconnected.
