More about the coaching process

  • Firstly we see you, without commitment, to discuss your needs and what you want to get out of coaching.
  • We explain what coaching is and what it is not- there are sometimes misconceptions.
  • If you wish we draw up a coaching contract which covers our ethics which cover our work, tell you the approaches and techniques we use to facilitates learning and personal development and agree the practicalities such as cost, timing, location,
  • We also agree your goals and how we can measure these- we like to measure your progress too.
  • All our work is entirely confidential and not shared with your employer unless you wish it.
  • Unlike some organisations we have no minimum number of sessions and no maximum either, it is entirely client driven to fit your needs.
