What is Coaching?
Coaching is a powerful, energising and creative process for making those meaningful changes that you want from your life. Whilst the fundamental belief of coaching is that you are the expert in your life and you have the answers locked within you, a coach can enable you to identify any potential internal blocks that may be holding you back. This process can facilitate those ‘lightbulb’ moments that spark new ways of thinking so you can make those necessary changes in order to move in the right direction; e.g. within a job, your health, family or a particular stage in your life - the list is endless.
Coaching is different from therapy in that counselling focuses on the past, whereas coaching focuses on the future in terms of where you want to be and what you want to achieve. However, it is a confidential, non-judgemental partnership based upon a relationship of trust.
Integrative coaching uses a variety of proven techniques to raise your self-awareness and ability to:
- Understand your motivations
- Reconnect to what is truly important to you
- Determine your own personal success trajectory and
- Break through those limiting beliefs and behaviours that stand between you and the achievement of your goals
Neuroscience is the study of the brain. Your genetics, environment and life experiences to date have shaped your brain chemistry. Our brains remain pliable throughout our lives and new experiences and emotions can reshape neuro-pathways to literally transform the brain. Visualising a specific experience can activate the same neural pathways as the actual experience or achievement.
The subconscious mind can greatly influence our thoughts, feelings and actions, whether or not we are consciously aware of this process.
By applying the principles of neuroscience and NLP (neuro-linguistic programming), we can help you to understand your own unique brain patterns and how they have influenced your behaviour so that you can start to think and behave differently to maintain new ways of being and achieve what you want and deserve.
Using 'Insights® Discovery'
"Increasing self-understanding leads to personal breakthroughs."
We leverage a worldwide leading diagnostic psychometric and coaching tool known as 'Insights® Discovery' profiling. Based on the psychology of Carl Jung, 'Insights Discovery' increases your self-awareness to help you perform at your highest level. Using this tool, we can help you better understand and leverage your strengths, counterbalance blindspots and more effectively manage conflicts within relationships.
You'll receive a 20+ page personal profile that gives you an engaging, reinforcing and transformational insight into yourself and how you relate to others. Explaining in detail your personal style and how you make decisions, your coach will leverage this information in order to develop your mindset, sharpen your capabilities, increase your personal effectiveness and strengthen relationships, both at work and at home.
The Coaching Experience
The introductory coaching session is used to get a 'helicopter view' of your world. We use the ‘wheel-of-life' model to see how each area of your life integrates in order to identify the appropriate starting points as often, where the coaching begins is upstream to your perceived coaching need. This exploratory 90-minute session results in your Personal Coaching Programme and an agreement of 2-3 areas for potential focus with initial coaching on one of your chosen areas. Ongoing sessions are used to review your progress, acknowledge what’s working and explore any potential setbacks to keep you motivated and on track. The intervals between your individual sessions are mutually agreed depending on the changes being implemented and what’s involved.
Coaching sessions come in bundles of 3 and are payable in advance, with additional one-off sessions being available. Sessions can be conducted in-person, via Skype, or over the telephone.
Your Personal Coaching Programme is priced at £210 and includes the introductory session (90-mins) and 2 x one-hour follow-up sessions. Further individual one-hour coaching sessions are priced at £70 each and bundles of 3 x one-hour sessions are £180.
