Coaching approach

My approach starts with the assumption that you, the client, are resourceful and my role as your coach is to work with you to surface and release this. Coaching is a partnership of equals, working together on your agenda. The coaching creates the space to explore how you can make changes, where you can get support, challenges perceived assumptions and increases self-awareness. I do most of my work through face to face 2 hour sessions for clients within London.After an initial phone discussion to check whether we can work together, people then commit to a further 3 to 5 sessions, with the offer of telephone support between sessions. I also offer coaching by telephone for clients outside London (or for those who find this more convenient). These sessions are for 1 hour and after the first session clients commit to a further set of sessions. My coaching is focussed, on action for change.
