What is Coaching?
Like Personal Training is for the body, Coaching is for the mind. You will transform your life by feeling empowered to get from where you are now to where you want to be (much faster and more effectively than if you were working alone). You, as the client, discover and set your own clear goals with the support of a coach asking all the questions, and through this process you hold yourself accountable for achieving your own results.
What is the difference between coaching, therapy, consulting, and mentoring?
- A therapist helps a client explore their past in order to uncover what is preventing them moving forwards
- A mentor is likely to share their own experience, offering useful advice to help the client
- A consultant will give the client clear and logical advice, providing process and structure
- A coach is future-focused and empowers the client to take ownership and responsibility for their situation and solution. A coach doesn’t try to shape the client’s decisions in any way. The goals, agenda and results are 100% driven by the client. A coach is like your biggest advocate and best friend, but who doesn’t offer their opinion! We just get results.
How will it help me?
How many times have you set yourself resolutions or goals and next thing you know; weeks, months or years have passed by – nothing’s changed, and you’re still unhappy or unsatisfied in your personal or professional life?
Particularly now, with the creative industries being one of the hardest hit by the Covid-19 pandemic, there remains a great deal of uncertainty around employment, with us all wondering if and when people will be returning to work. Feeling like you’re living at the mercy of a virus is disempowering, and can cause future planning to be clouded by fear and anxiety. But it doesn’t have to be that way – you can empower yourself with the help of a coach.
As a coach, I take the time to help you figure out why you might be going around in circles with your goals and not achieving what you wish to achieve. By asking the right questions framed in the right way, I help you identify and address those fears to set you on an empowering path to achieving what you really want.
What happens in a coaching session?
The sessions will usually take place weekly via video call and last between 60-90minutes each.
We’ll start each session with a recap of the previous session’s actions, then work to set a new clear intention for the next week, breaking down the goal and tackling any obstacles and limiting beliefs head on.
By the end of each session you’ll walk away feeling confident and excited to take the next leap towards your goals.
Who do you coach?
I work with creative professionals who are highly motivated to transform their lives and careers but may be lacking confidence, support or clarity.
If you’d like to know how I can help you with your specific area of concern, book a FREE discovery session with me HERE and let’s get you unstuck!
Are you only available in London/The UK?
Not at all. I’m currently based in Nassau (The Bahamas) and I coach a wide range of clients internationally at the following times. For availability in your time zone, please use the scheduler.
Do you guarantee success?
Your success, and how you measure it, is all down to you, but we’ll work together to define your version of “success” and help you achieve it! While you are ultimately responsible for achieving your own results, hopefully the testimonials speak for themselves – Read them HERE.
What if I’m nervous?
It’s completely normal to be nervous! Trying something brand new, or getting out of your comfort zone can be scary at first, but I know what it’s like to be nervous and will make sure to guide you at your own pace. It’s my job to tailor each session to your values and speed, so we can achieve positive results without them feeling overwhelming.
