What is coaching?

Imagine a coach pulled by horses transporting folk to to their destination. Your coach meets you where you are now and travels with you, supporting you on your journey. Coaching can help you reach and exceed your goals, visions, and dreams in your work and personal life. 

A coach achieves this by:
• Helping to raise your awareness through questions and challenge.
• Helping you to create practical action plans to reach your goals.
• Providing support through change.
• Providing you with tools, techniques and strategies to create lasting change and success.

What is it liked to be coached?

Coaching takes many forms and it is important that you choose a coach that understands your needs and suits your style. When you have your first conversation with your coach, they will listen to you and find out where you are now and talk with you about where you want to get to. You may have a clear idea of your destination or you may have no idea at all (in truth you are probably somewhere in between!). In any case, what you will have is a desire to move and develop from your current position. 

Coaching usually happens face to face but can be conducted over the internet, or by telephone. Your coach will help you set goals, listen to you and ask questions, often reframing your assumptions and challenging any limiting beliefs you might hold. Your coach will not give you answers; coaching works on the basis that you have the answers and through a series of prompts and questions, the answers emerge. You know yourself best. Your coach will bring expertise in coaching techniques and will draw on their professional and personal experiences to support your development. 

A one to one coaching session is usually between 90 minutes and three hours depending on your needs. People typically have six sessions over a period of six to nine months. Everyone is unique and we will work with you to create a bespoke package that is personal to you.
