coaching and mentoring

nasturtium duoTo enjoy life to the full, achieve our potential and leave the world a better place we all need people who are wholly on our side, supporting us. We also need people who will challenge our thinking and our assumptions and introduce us to new ideas and ways of looking at the world.

That is what I offer you. My way of working is to move flexibly between coaching and mentoring to meet your needs.

Always giving you my full attention, and bringing to our conversation a deep understanding of the context in which you are working, sometimes I focus on asking you insightful questions that prompt your thinking. Sometimes I introduce new ideas or concepts in the form of short ‘theory bursts’ that I think will help you understand your situation in a different way. Sometimes we explore possibilities together. And to others I’ll offer you reflections on patterns of behaviour or thinking that I observe, that may be getting in your way.

I like to work on an initial 6 session programme, where we meet every 4-6 weeks for 6 sessions, reviewing in session 5 whether you wish to continue, want to move to a longer interval between meetings, or have made such progress that you do not need any further support. You are always welcome to return and my clients choose each of these three options.

If you would like to meet for an exploratory session please contact me.
