Coaching

Here is where you can find out about the benefits of coaching, my approach and how we can work together. You’ll also see what some people who have already hired me as their coach have to say.

If you’re new to coaching and want to find out more about the basics, a good place to start is my blog post on definitions of coaching.

Working together

It’s now common to feel rushed, stretched and overwhelmed. None of these are great conditions for making decisions. This can lead us to feel like we’re drifting through life even though we may have a desire for something different.

Pressing pause can feel selfish and indulgent. But how many times do we make knee-jerk decisions that we later come to regret? Or put off making a decision and continue on auto-pilot with mounting feelings of frustration or dissatisfaction?

Coaching provides you the with the headspace to get some perspective and explore your options. The process can help you to:

  • clarify your thoughts
  • take responsibility for your decisions and actions
  • identify and overcome obstacles

I help people at pivot points in their lives and careers to pause, reflect and make conscious choices about what’s next.

My approach

My coaching practice is founded on the belief that you are the expert. My role is to ask appropriate questions to help you unlock the answers.

As your coach, I will:

  • encourage self-discovery
  • encourage forward and positive thinking
  • help you identify and set goals
  • challenge when appropriate
  • gain your commitment to act and hold you accountable

There are three phases to all of my coaching programmes:

Reframe »

First, we take a step back to gain some perspective on your current situation. Together we’ll uncover new ways to think about and describe what’s blocking you.

Refresh »

Next, we’ll consider your options and look for opportunities you may not have thought of. We’ll focus on the things you can control and review your approach to those you can’t.

Refocus »

Finally, we’ll evaluate your progress and decide how you want to proceed. Together we’ll create a realistic action plan to help you move towards and achieve your goals.

Testimonials

Emma has helped me to examine my long-term career aims, the thoughts behind these aims and how I can fulfil them. She is quiet and calm and incredibly insightful. I found it easy to be open and be honest with her, and felt supported and not at all judged. I would have no hesitation in recommending coaching with Emma.
