How do the sessions work?
When we get together; whether that’s an individual, a couple or a business training – my aim is always the same……to wake the client up to their own potential. Now that might sound like a cheap soundbite, but to me, and I mean this wholeheartedly……..there’s nothing that I have that you need – it’s not “my” potential it’s yours! – ALL transformation comes from within and my job, as a transformative coach, is to point you in the direction of your own potential.
Sessions are conversational – and by that I mean that you would be hard pressed to notice a difference between “me as coach” and “me in an everyday casual conversation with friends” – apart from that fact that whilst coaching I’m focused upon one thing – and that’s you. Of course I’m a professional – but this conversation is human to human and not expert to client and it’s most certainly not a “Pollyanna” type of coaching; this conversation transforms lives and often that means being pushed to the edge of your comfort zone.
There is no fixed way of joining me in this conversation….from hiring a meeting room, meeting at the workplace, meeting in a relaxing hotel lobby or quiet cafe, walking though a park or through the streets of London, meeting online via Skype or other conferencing software…..whatever works for both parties is great.
More often than not clients are used to paying for coaching sessions by the hour – but I prefer to work in an intensive format. Typically this means spending a whole morning, afternoon or day together – to really shift the foundations and then follow this up with a few one hour post-intensive catch-ups. The typical format of one hour per week just doesn’t work particularly well in this instance.
Without a doubt these sessions are all about you – so I’m more than happy to create sessions that are flexible enough to satisfy your availability.
And who is this for?
To put it simply – if you’re reading this then I make the assumption that you’re a human being – and that’s all that’s needed to qualify. I’m not going to give the usual list of issues that I’m able to help …..because I believe that everyone, no matter what their circumstance, can benefit from this understanding; whether your’e looking to break-free from something or whether you’re doing great and just looking for a new direction or moment of clarity.
In addition to individual coaching I’m also very happy to make presentations to businesses; anything from a one hour ‘taster’ to a full day’s training. The aim of these talks, quite obviously, depends upon the requirement of the business concerned but generally speaking I aim to teach the importance of “state of mind”, how stress really works, what are the principles behind the human experience and how understanding them changes lives, how relationships work, what is resilience and why does it matter, how to understand other people’s reality, understanding emotions, blocks to creativity and innovation, wellbeing…..For more detail please visit the business page
