Coaching honours the client as the expert in his/her life and work and believes that every client is creative, resourceful and whole. It is a future-focused practice with the aim of helping clients determine and achieve personal goals.
Coaches are trained to listen, to observe and to customise their approach to individual client needs. They seek to elicit solutions and strategies from the client, they believe the client is naturally creative and resourceful. The coach's job is to provide support to enhance the skills, resources and creativity that the client already has.
Experience shows that people who have been coached reach their goals and realise their dreams in a shorter time, with more confidence, and a better belief in their own abilities than those that go it alone.
Professional Coaching is an ongoing professional relationship that helps people produce extraordinary results in their lives. Through the process of coaching, clients deepen their learning, improve their performance, and enhance their quality of life.
Coaching is a highly effective tool used to create peace and confidence in your life. Within the safety of the coaching relationship you can be honest about where you want and need support in the knowledge that this will remain totally confidential. Coaching can be a catalyst for change as well as an accountability tool.
Coaching enables the client to learn new skills with confidence; achieve personal successes, and achieve their dreams and ultimate goals in the knowledge that as their guide I am at their side throughout their journey and will gently nudge them back on track when they have any doubts.
There are many types of Coaching
Life, Business, Career, Youth, Retirement, Sports, Weight-loss, Confidence, Motivation, Moving Forward.
Coaching can be achieved either on a one to one face to face basis, by using skype video or phone and e-mail contact. Or a range of the above.
Initially I give a FREE initial 30-45 minute confidential consultation to enable both myself and prospective client to see if we are happy to work with each other, and to have some idea of the kind of outcome the client is looking to achieve. This is when I will have a better idea of approximately how long it will be to start achieving the goal. See How Coaching Works for more information.
What is Neuro-Linguistic (NLP) Coaching?
Simply defined; it is a way of studying how people excel in any field and then teaching these patterns to others.
Neuro- Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a behavioural technique, which simply means that it is a set of guiding principles, attitudes and techniques about real life behaviour, and not a removed, scientific theorem. It allows you to change, adopt or eliminate behaviours, as you desire, and gives you the ability to create a better quality of life. NLP is a very pragmatic technology, based on an ability to produce your desired results, thus allowing you to become proficient at creating your future! It is very similar to being able to programme a computer, only NLP is used to programme your internal computer enabling you to reach your own inspiring goals and dreams. Neuro-Linguistics are used to enhance your communication skills and provide you with more choices when working in a difficult situation.... it shows how we make sense of the world around us and communicate.
People are capable of incredible things; however they often do not achieve their full potential. Some people put this down to what they might call talent; however a fundamental principle of NLP training is that we can all achieve similar results from modelling the thinking and physiology of those that excel in the field we would like to emulate. NLP offers a range of different techniques and tools that can help you model successful people and achieve excellent results more quickly.
NLP training is about taking control of your brain and behaviour to achieve the results that you want in life. It offers a range of different techniques to manage your emotions and internal thought processes so that you can achieve the results you want rather than your results being determined by un resourceful states that you might have found yourself in.
NLP will teach you how to create rapport with others; it will influence your skills and give you an understanding and ability to use body language. With your new skills you will be able to think about and achieve the results you want. Your interaction with others during meetings, negotiations or selling will become far more effective.
I use hypnotherapy alongside NLP in coaching people in managing stress, presentations, public speaking, confidence, phobias and fears, motovation, weight control and many more areas. Hypnotherapy is the theraputic use of Hypnosis, which is a state when someone becomes relaxed and calm but still aware. It is a partnership between therapist and client. The client uses their mind and imagination to enter this state, guided by the voice of the therapist.
