individual coaching

We have ten years experience of providing one to one support for people in leadership, executive
and management roles. This has been variously called ‘consulting’, ‘support’, ‘external supervision’, ‘coaching’. We have chosen to use the term ‘coaching’, which has become widely acceptable in
recent years, to cover these different activities.

What is coaching?

Coaching is one to one support for a client. It gives the person structured time where they can
explore their issues, become more self-aware, gain insights into their role, and develop their own
unique way of interacting with colleagues and the workplace.

We take a holistic approach to coaching, which focuses both on the individual and the context in
which they work. In this respect coaching can lead to organisational change and help achieve
business objectives as well as promoting individual development and personal effectiveness.

Who can benefit?
  • Anyone in a leadership or executive role, who may want a reflective space away from
    the workplace, to explore, be challenged, see things in a new light and be supported in experimenting with new ways of working.
  • Small business entrepreneurs who need a space away from everyday work demands to
    take a more objective look at their business and how they are functioning at work.
  • Consultants, trainers, coaches who want a fellow professional to act as a sounding board,
    provide feedback on their work, and help them to develop best practice.
  • Anyone in transition who would benefit from support in adapting to and finding meaning
    in new roles, relationships and situations resulting from major life or work changes.

Our coaching service

We offer short term and long term coaching, usually face-to-face, sometimes supplemented by telephone contact. Each coaching relationship will be unique and develop over time according to
the client's needs. However there are some common ingredients:

  • An initial contract outlines what the client wants from coaching, how frequently they'd like
    to meet and other practical details.
  • Coaching sessions are usually confidential. If this is not the case both parties agree what
    can and cannot be discussed with third parties.
  • Each coaching session will vary, depending on clients' overall goals and what they bring to
    the session.
  • The coach uses his or her skills to help clients describe their issues, become aware of their biases, values, beliefs and assumptions, explore their options, develop strategies for moving forward, and the confidence to put these into practice.
  • Regular reviews ensure that clients are getting what they want from coaching, and we
    respond flexibly to accommodate changing needs.
