Personal Development Coaching & Life Coaching - for YOUR Success
What is Coaching?
Coaching differs from therapy. Coaching is a series of conversations between me, the
coach and you, the client. As coach, my role is to help you to move successfully and
confidently from where you are now to where you want to be, helping you to overcome any obstacles to success that you encounter along the way. During coaching, I
will help you clarify what matters to you based on your own values and beliefs before helping you to
set achievable goals and to move forward through to their successful achievement.
It's all about YOU
A coaching relationship is like no other because of the powerful combination of
the coach’s objective detachment to the client’s issues and their complete
commitment to the client’s goals.This is why, you can be assured that my
primary focus during my coaching conversations is YOU – your success, your happiness
and the ultimate achievement of your goals and desired outcomes become my steadfast
commitment to you. I am there to support you even if you have a ‘wobble’ or two
or if new challenges arise along the way.
Life, Personal Development & Performance Coaching
Coaching can be extremely helpful for many people. You may feel stuck in a rut in some
area of your life, work or area of performance. You may be suffering from
procrastination, feeling like you are constantly taking one step forward and
three steps back or even not moving off square one. Making any kind of progress may feel like wading through
treacle, scary or completely overwhelming.
Coaching can help support and empower positive changes to enable you to achieve
success in your life, your personal development and professional /business/career/performance goals.
Some of the common obstacles and challenges that I help clients address through Coaching include:
- Modifying habits
- Lack of focus or clarity about the next steps
confidence, lack of self-belief
- Fear of failure / perfectionism
- Fear of success
- Time management
- Exam, test, interview, presentation nerves
- Lack of assertiveness
- Relations with others affecting performance

Work-Life Balance Coaching
It is often impossible to separate work from life. People’s lives usually don’t package neatly into separate bundles of job/work; home; health and well-being (e.g. diet, exercise, unhealthy habits) ; finances; relationships; social and recreational. Imbalances or difficulties in one area usually negatively impacts on one or more other areas. Poor health, for example might cause problems in a person’s social life, relationships, home and work. As a coach I can work with you to identify, clarify and redress the imbalances and struggles to help improve your life and performance in the areas that you want to get results in.
Me as your Coach
Coaching sessions with me are always future-focused on the
achievement of my client’s goals. I provide a fully integrative style
where I am able to offer a combination of leading-edge, scientifically-based approaches within a framework of Coaching to help you achieve a truly transformational level of clarity and results. I may use NLP techniques, EFT
and if required, therapy, depending upon your individual needs, goals and challenges.
My pledge to you:
“In my role as coach I remain supportive, objective and
non-judgmental at all times.
My role is to listen carefully to understand how you view and experience the world.
During our coaching sessions, I will listen carefully, make observations, provide feedback, ask important and powerful questions and reflect back to stimulate your ideas and help create real clarity and focus.
My aim is to help and encourage you to:
- See opportunities for improvement in your life, work and your performance
- Identify and clarify your goals
-Understand the very nature of thought and its role in creating our experience
- Agree and put into practise between coaching sessions the practical steps needed to move forward to achieve your goals
- Build a work life balance that fulfils you, reduces stress levels and increases your happiness
- Acknowledge your achievements, what worked well and how you can use that again
- Identify and utilise resources that you need to move forward effectively
- Rise to challenges & overcome obstacles and self-sabotaging limited beliefs (even ones that may seem insurmountable)
- Move into action with greater ease and confidence."

Your role in CoachingSessions will be fully interactive and require your full involvement, focus and commitment to achieving your desired outcomes.
Throughout the process and always with my full support, you will identify,
write down and put into practise between sessions the action steps that will
help you most effectively move forward and make real progress towards your
goals. A discussion on progress made and any obstacles that arose will be the
initial focus at the start of the next coaching session.
At the same time, in both my roles as a coach or therapist, I always like to teach you how to use the techniques covered during our sessions, including making personalised audio recordings for you as appropriate. These recordings are provided free of charge.
The first step to getting started is a free, no-obligation, confidential chat, over the phone or face -to-face. The purpose of this is for you to have an opportunity to tell me about your needs and for me to say whether I believe I can do a good job in coaching you. There’s no obligation or cost for this.
