To help you better understand what coaching entails, I’m providing some of the details that you may find useful to know before we start your coaching sessions. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

1. Coaching session details and format

We can schedule one off or a series of coaching sessions, we can agree this during our initial conversation and review during each coaching session. These sessions are delivered via a combination of physical meetings or via Zoom/MS Teams, which generally last between 60 to 90 minutes. We use a self service booking tool which allows your coaching to fit around your demands, time and dates can be flexible and may take place day, evenings, and whatever day suits subject to our diaries. Prior to commencing any coaching, we have an initial conversation for us to:

  • check you are happy with what coaching entails (and what it is not)
  • to discuss our way of working together
  • further chance for you to ask any questions
  • most importantly, get to know each and for you to decide if you want to progress with coaching

2. During the sessions

We can focus on whatever is important to you on a diverse range of themes, remember it this is centred on you and can be flexible to what you or your organisation needs. Examples of areas you may wish to explore include:

  • Performing better at work
  • Confidence in yourself
  • Developing your career opportunities
  • Understand and address thorny issues
  • Better work life balance
  • Developing personal ambitions

  • Developing leadership skills and abilities

These are just some of the themes you may wish to focus on, don’t worry if you are not clear on what you wish to focus on, you can use the coaching sessions to achieve this. The sessions will always be confidential and intended to foster a safe environment for you. On following pages, is general information relating to Coaching which you may find useful.

3. What is Coaching about?

A formal definition of Coaching provided by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) defines coaching as partnering with clients (or coachees) in a thought provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximise their personal and professional potential. Coaching is a client-driven process that distinct from other professions such as counselling, mentoring, consulting, and training.
