What is Coaching?

Coaching is a confidential structured conversation between a skilled facilitator and a client. The role of the facilitator (coach) is to support the client to move forward with his or her agenda, not providing advice, but listening, reflecting back, questioning and providing a space which can reveal new insights. My role is to walk alongside you and understand the world from your perspective. I will aim to challenge your thinking and will never be judgemental. We work with what is; it’s your agenda.

Some of the benefits of coaching:

  • It helps you to clarify and reach your goals;
  • You take control of solutions; they are not imposed;
  • It promotes learning and fresh perspectives;
  • We work together in service of your agenda;
  • It allows and encourages you to do your best thinking in a confidential non-judgemental space.

A typical programme is 4 x 1.5 hour sessions, to be agreed in advance. Variations to this pattern and the frequency of sessions can be negotiated according to individual need. In the first session we explore the current reality and identify and begin to work towards a preferred future.

If you have never experienced the power of coaching, you may want to consider a single ‘taster’ session.

Fees are from £95 an hour with a reduced fee for those working in the church.
