Life coaching is perfect for those individuals who are ready to take back control and transform their lives.
Click on your burning life coaching question...
Coaching is about empowerment and a designed alliance between the coach (me) and the client (you). It helps you determine what your goals are and how you can achieve those goals.
Life coaching enables you to view your life from a different perspect and gives you the confidence to move forward. You get to design the life that you want, not just accepting the life you've found yourself in. It means daring to dream for more, expanding your horizons and finding a way to make it possible.
This is not just wishing things were better. And I don't just do plain Life Coaching. When you work with me I include elements of CBT (see below) and Neuro Linguistic Programming.
It's about your psychology. Your thoughts, values and beliefs shape the world you live in - through the way you interpret what happens to you and the choices you make.
When you understand what makes you tick, how to make more informed choices and how to take empowered action, you get to hack your life. You can dramatically improve your situation, improve your relationships and meet your goals.
Until we meet, it's difficult to answer that question. There are however, a few factors that will indicate your readiness for coaching:
If you answered "yes" to these questions, you are probably ready for coaching. The best thing we can do now is book a call to see if we connect and you can see us working together.
Life coaching can help you gain greater insight into the present and change aspects of your life you are unhappy with. It can help you set and achieve your goals.
Ultimately, life coaching can help you dream bigger, expand your horizon and increase your ability for positive change by exploring new options and helping you become a better decision maker.
Life coaching is a not a miracle cure for everything wrong in your life. Attending the sessions alone will not be enough. There will be actions to take between sessions where most of your transformation will take place.
The good news is that by changing one aspect of your life, it can create a ripple effect whereby one change leads to another, then another. It means that we don't have to "fix" everything at once. We can look at one area of your life (your relationships, a goal, your career, your confidence), and improve that. In turn it will have a knock on effect on your life as a whole.
For example, suppose you were to have greater confidence or less anxiety in your life? What might that do for your relationships at home or at work? How might that in turn affect your productivity at work? And your career? One thing leads to the next.
I do offer one-off sessions for those who want to "dip their toes into the water", but we often find that one-off sessions are not enough.
With that in mind I offer a range of packages designed to suit your budget and needs. We can go at your own pace and if you need to switch things up or cut things back, we can do that too.
I understand that sometimes you have questions and may not want to wait until our next session. As a bonus, anyone on regular programme with me will be able to get support between times.
Since the support you may need can vary it's difficult to give you an exact price until we speak. I offer several programmes and some may not be right for you.
My packages start at £99 per month and payments plans are available.
Business coaching can help you shortcut your learning curve, increase your income and win back your time
Click on your burning business coaching question...
Let's face it, since you're reading this right now, you need help. Unless you're confidently growing your business, consistently bringing in new customers and hitting your targets, and your growth is exactly where you want it to be, you need help.
Maybe you are hitting your numbers right now, but you feel like you're selling your soul in order to achieve it. You created your business because you wanted a certain lifestyle and the freedom to live your life on your terms.
If you're making money at the expense of spending time with your family, and you're seeing your best years slip away, it's time to get some help.
You've done well on your own to get to where you are right now, but if you want to be truly successful, you need a guide or mentor. After all, you may be exceptional in your chosen area of expertise, but who taught you how to grow a business?
Maybe you took some courses or read some books. How much of what you learned did you manage to implement? That's the trouble with self-study. The information is often good, but it's implementation that you need, and that requires a different approach.
Results vary form individual to individual so it's difficult to say what results you should expect. It also depends on your goals right now and how far along your business is.
Are you just setting up your business? Business coaching can help you get out of the gate quick, put together a compelling offer, help you with your pricing, and show you how to market your business.
Are you looking to grow an audience? Maybe you're struggling with social media or you're looking to build a membership community. Business coaching can help you by providing a content strategy that's laser focussed on your ideal buyer. You'll learn what creates engagement and how to turn engagement into action - whether that's to drive traffic to your website, trial on offer or book a call with you.
Are you having difficulty with getting leads? Business coaching can help you put together an effective lead generation plan based around your particular skill set, your preferences, your budget and your ideal buyer.
Are you struggling with closing clients or lacking confidence in sales meetings? Business coaching can help you by teaching the psychology behind sales, redefining your relationship with sales, and teaching you how to hold discovery meetings and sales conversations in a way that feels, natural, authentic and fun.
Are you making good money and looking to scale your business? Business coaching can teach you models for scaling your business, how to grow a team, how to build and automate systems and how to become an outstanding leader.
As with all things in life, it depends on a variety of factors. Having said that, my clients typically start seeing results in 2-3 months. Results build over time based on where you are in your business presently, and how much action you're prepared to take.
This is not a get rich quick scheme. Nothing will come to you unless you're prepared to do the work - on your business, and on yourself.
I can promise you a couple of things:
I offer a variety of options to suit your budget and need. Programmes begin at £99 per month.
You can cancel with me anytime you need to. I just require 30-days notice then you're free to exit the programme and can come back to me if and when you need to.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) helps you deal with anxiety and move forward with confidence
Click on your burning CBT question...
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy can help lots of people in a variety of situations. Whether it works for you or not depends on a variety of factors so we won't know until we've had chance to meet and explore your situation carefully.
This is why I offer a free connection call. The purpose of this meeting is to explore whether CBT will help you and if I am the best person to facilitate it with you.
Similar to coaching, CBT requires active participation in solving your problems. It isn't just about talking through your problems. It's about discussing them, understanding them more fully, and developing strategies that you will implement to improve your situation and how you feel.
Some forms of counselling concern themselves purely with the past and how they affect your present day feelings. CBT takes the next step by helping you focus on your present situation and what you can do to change it for the better.
While some forms of counselling focus largely on coming to terms with the past, CBT helps you understand how your thoughts, feelings and behavours are connected, and how by changing any one of these things you can affect the others.
In short, CBT is about giving you a toolkit to cope with the ups and downs of life.
Sessions are normally weekly initially and then dialled back to once every two weeks for as long as you need them.
I don't normally see people for single or adhoc sessions as this rarely builds lasting change.
It's possible that you'll feel better after your first session, although this will likely be a result of sharing things that are worrying you and expressing yourself freely. It's the old adage taking place; "a problem shared is a problem halved."
The real benefits of CBT will likely emerge after the first 2-3 sessions. At this time we should have fully explored your current situation and are moving on to practical coping strategies. These are not fully explored in the first couple of sessions since we must deal with the present before you're ready to adjust for the future.
Much of the work we'll do together is based on the fact that your thoughts, feelings, physiology and behaviours are interlinked. When you change one factor, the others change accordingly.
As a result, how quickly you start feeling better will depend on how much attention you give to practicing the techniques taught and how frequently your session take place.
Prices start at £79 per session. If you need support between times we can discuss this in your intake session and we'll agree a price that suits your budget and support needs.
Here are some of the results my past clients have enjoyed...
My simple 3 step formula:
Increase awareness of your thoughts, feelings and behaviours to improve understanding and expand your choices.
Accept the things you can't change, love yourself (warts and all) and improve relationships.
Take a series of small and purposeful actions that create the life (or business) you desire.
Not sure what type of help you need?
Here's why it doesn't really matter:
If you're not sure what type of help you need it doesn't matter one bit. I don't offer cookie-cutter programmes. You know what problems you're experiencing and how you want your life or business to be different. When I work with you I'll know the right approach to help you achieve your goals and create the results you're looking for.
