Frequently Asked questions
Which coaching approach do you work with? My coaching style would be commonly called Outcome focused which means that it is based on: Goal-Orientation, Problem Disengagement and Resource activation. My goal for each session is for you to leave the session armed with things to try so you can work towards goals you`ve identified as being important.
The coaching model which i predominantly use is the GROW Model which stands for Goal Reality Options Will and is perhaps the most widely used coaching model.
I am also a member of the Association for Coaching and a certified PR6 Resilience Coach.
How is a typical session structured? For the first session, we talk about the issues that need to be addressed, and spend the last 10-15 minutes identifying options for moving forward.
After the initial session, in all subsequent sessions, we`ll start by talking about changes since the previous session i.e. what worked (or didn`t) and finish up with identifying options to pursue.
What kind of problems does you work with most ? Typically i`ve dealt with issues such as Motivation, setting goals and identifying outcomes and options when someone feels "stuck". I offer a free phone consultation (15-20 minutes) where we can chat and you can see if you want to progress to a session.
I have also designed a program called "Strategic Conversations" which is aimed at businesses & entrepreneurs.
How many sessions does his coaching typically consist of? Typically i have an introductory session which sets boundaries and identifies the key issues to be identified. A follow up session then addresses the issues to see what has changed and what is the next course of action.
How long does each session take? Typically a session will last about an hour although it might run over (although if i have a client after we will stick to the schedule). With the Resilience Coaching package there is an initial 90 minute session.
How much does it cost? Prices are available on the site. Up until January 31st 2019 i`ll be offering special introductory prices. In the New Year, i will be releasing details of Coaching packages (Weekends based) that i will be offering.
What kind of problems would i not work with? I am very explicit about issues that i would deal with. Deep underlying issues are something that i avoid as i`m not a trained clinician and i ensure that i comply with my code of ethics (available on my site).
I have a section on the site called "If you`re not traveling well" which has some contact details that maybe helpful.
