Coaching

There are many definitions of coaching and every coach will have their own approach. Find out more about my approach and how we can work together.

What is coaching?

Coaching promotes personal development through increased self-awareness. The coach’s role is to create the conditions to help you find your own solutions.

Coaching is a conversation, directed by you. A coach’s questions will give the conversation structure to help you identify and move towards your goals.

Coaching encourages you to live a self-determined life. A coach will help you to take responsibility for decisions and actions that bring about change.

“Coaching is unlocking a person’s potential to maximise their own performance”
John Whitmore

How I work

My practice stems from 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
  • challenge when appropriate
  • help you identify and set goals
  • gain your commitment to act and hold you accountable

Coaching takes place in 1-to-1 sessions. We can meet in person if you’re based in or around Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Alternatively, our sessions can take place remotely via phone or video call.

A typical programme will include six sessions over a period of around three to six months. We’ll agree on the length and frequency of sessions when we start working together.

All programmes start with a free introductory coaching call where we’ll get to know each other, talk about what you want to get from our coaching sessions, and agree how we’re going to work best together.

My approach

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.

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.

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