Although related, with some shared characteristics, they are not the same. Counselling helps you make sense of your past and how it affects your life. Coaching focuses on the future. Your past is relevant in order to shed light on how you think and what’s holding you back from achieving your goals and dreams. Mentoring is a professional relationship in which an experienced person (the mentor) assists another (the mentoree) in developing specific skills and knowledge that will enhance the less-experienced person’s professional and personal growth.
NLP stands for Nero Linguistic Programming and has been around since the 70’s. Some of the connections between our brain and communications are conscious and some are subconscious reactions, programmed at any early age. NLP gives us the tools to develop greater awareness of our thought processes and techniques to reprogramme the way we think and experience things. You can use NLP to support rapid progress in your personal life and to achieve more at work.
No medical advice is given nor is life coaching a substitute for people with medical conditions or situations. If this is the case, please get in touch and we will establish if I am able to help. If I feel I am unable to help you, I may recommend another service or professional I feel is more appropriate.
The coaching process is as long as you need it to be and I will develop a ‘custom approach’ for each person.
With a strong commitment and by setting clear actions and goals you will find that you will make substantial changes within 6-12 sessions. Sessions usually last one hour (with the exception of the initial half hour initial meeting) but can be adapted to suit your circumstances. It is your journey so you are completely in charge.
All our sessions are completely confidential, unless there is a safeguarding issue. All records are password protected.
Various packages are available for all your coaching requirements. Please email me to discuss your needs.
If you set goals, we will plan actions for you to work on between sessions. Sometimes, we will agree homework for you to complete to inform the next session and help move forward more quickly.
