COACHING AND PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT

Explore your possibilities

Sometimes we all need a little support to tackle something that is on our mind, meet a new work challenge or to manage changing life circumstances. This is where I may be able to help you.

I am qualified in a form of coaching called “Integral Development Coaching” that draws upon knowledge from cognitive science, linguistics, philosophy, psychology, biology, somatics, adult development theory, spirituality and more.

 

In its broadest sense, a coach is someone who can help motivate you and offer structure to reach your goals, develop new behaviours, manage transitions in life or even trace a path to a new way of living. I will act as your guide, helping you to bridge the gap between where you are now and where you want to be.

I work with people from all walks of life – from business, politics, the voluntary sector and education. It’s not relevant whether you are a man or woman, how old you are, where you are from or what your job title is. What’s important is how committed you are. When your commitment meets my support and expertise, we can do great things.

I work differently with everyone as… everyone I work with is different. With each client I design a unique coaching programme that is typically based upon a combination of reflective exercises and new practices.  You will get the chance to develop greater self-knowledge but also the opportunity to practice a new way of being in the world. I will offer you challenge and a development edge but it will be realistic and fit with the commitments of everyday life. 

Topics I have supported clients on in the past have included:​

  • Wellbeing and health

  • Managing anxiety

  • Mastery of worrying habits

  • Better work/life balance and avoiding burnout

  • Managing conflict at work

  • Tracing a path to retirement

  • Building self-belief and resilience

  • Overcoming procrastination and taking action

  • Developing relationships, including opening-up to the possibility of a relationship

  • Career changes

  • Coming to terms with big existential questions like “what is my purpose in life?” and “what does a life lived well look like?”

 

I offer structured time, away from everyday routines and pressures. You will be encouraged to explore possibilities that might otherwise remain hidden and express yourself freely, without judgement, and in full confidence.  I have my own dedicated and discreet coaching space in the Nether Edge area of Sheffield where I conduct the majority of my coaching sessions.  In the right circumstances, I am also able to work with you in other settings such as your workplace, home or a coffee shop. A mixture of video conferencing and face-to-face meetings can be arranged for those who live outside of Sheffield.

All initial conversations are free of charge and with no commitment. They are exploratory so that I can assess your situation, explain how I work, you can get a feel for my style and we can see if we are a good match to work together. Each programme I develop is unique, so is priced accordingly, with fees and a payment schedule agreed following our introductory conversation.

If we conclude from our initial conversation that you need something different, I have broad networks into different communities of coaches and therapists, so I will do my best to refer you to a more suitable practitioner.
