Frequently Asked Questions
What is Coaching?
Working with people to help them move their lives forward from where they are to where they want to be. We will work together to focus on the solutions, not the problems. Effective Coaching will unlock your potential and empower you to succeed. It will often help you to achieve more than you previously thought possible.
How many sessions will I need?
Everyone is an individual so it varies from one person to another. Most people need about 5 or 6 sessions to achieve meaningful and sustainable progress but you may need fewer or more. We will discuss your progress at the end of each session and it will be your choice to decide how many more sessions you wish to arrange.
How frequently will I need to attend Coaching sessions?
It is best to meet regularly in order to maintain progress. Most people attend a Coaching session every 2 to 3 weeks until they have made their desired progress but some people prefer to meet more often and others like to receive extensive support on consecutive days. We will discuss and agree what works best for you.
What do you need from me as a client?
Commitment - to yourself. Wanting to be Coached in order to move your life forward.
An Open Mind - willing to accept Coaching support and to discuss personal details.
Honesty - with yourself and your Coach
Punctuality - in the right place at the right time as agreed.
How Much Will It Cost?
I provide support that is tailored to meet individual needs so we can discuss details on a no obligation basis during our initial conversation. My rates are very competitive and I have a strong track record of helping people to achieve the outcomes they want so investing in yourself will be well worthwhile.
I do not charge for the initial Start-Up Session, which may take up to 30 minutes. Personal 1 hour Coaching sessions are normally charged at £55 per hour. Discounts are available in certain circumstances, eg for those on benefits.
What is Mentoring?
Mentoring involves sharing my personal knowledge, experiences and insights with clients in order to advise and guide them towards professional and/or personal success.
What is Personal Development?
Elements of Coaching are included within the Personal Development sessions that I offer but it also includes the sharing of knowledge, experiences and learning, helping clients to develop new qualities, skills and attributes so that they can improve their performance and quality of life.
Do you provide Coaching, Mentoring, Personal Development and Training for organisations as well as individuals?
