My no-obligation coaching taster session/chemistry mtg

I believe that all coaching should begin with a NO OBLIGATION face-to-face coaching taster so this is the first step in all my services. I introduce coaching and you tell me about your needs, hopes, aspirations and knowledge of coaching. All in confidence of course.

The quality of the relationship between you and your coach is important to the success of the coaching programme.

If, after chatting, we think we can work well together and meet each other's expectations, then we'll start looking at your anticipated coaching programme.

This includes the purpose of the coaching, outcome measures, anticipated location and frequency of our meetings, confidentiality, roles and responsibilities, payment method, cancellation policy, between session support, how to address any arising issues and service evaluation.

My Biography

At 29, I left retail management and started studying for a BSc Honours in Psychology. Three years later, I gained a First and across the next few years, a Post Graduate Certificate in Mental Health, Certificate in Occupational Testing, Brief Psychological Interventions, Certificate in Coaching (approved by the British Psychological Society) and MSc in Occupational Psychology.

My clients' goals and action plans have ranged from condition management and life management to finding, sustaining and/or succeeding in the workplace.

My coaching experience includes working with private clients, Macmillan Cancer Support Professionals, Expanding Horizons team (private Housing Association) and the clients of Shaw Trust, Department for Work and Pensions (Jobcentre Plus), Rethink Mental Illness and NHS (Primary Care Condition Management).

I've completed Solution Focused, Cognitive Behavioural, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness and NLP training courses. I keep up to date with the evolving world of coaching and Positive Psychology, subscribe to my own self-reflection and practice development (via professional 1-1 coaching supervision and Peer Practice group) and evaluate my services with clients via ongoing review and post-coaching questionnaire.

Not all but many of my clients have been people managing anxiety, depression, a physical health condition/disability or neurodiversity (i.e. Dyslexia) alongside life and work.

I look forward to meeting you!

I'm a member of The British Psychological Society's (BPS) Division in Occupational Psychology, the BPS Special Group in Coaching Psychology (SGCP), The Association for Coaching, Fresh Air Fridays Facilitators and hold Professional Indemnity Insurance.
