Improving the quality of your life
Coaching is a unique partnership between two people, the coach and the client. The coach's role is to ask thought-provoking questions and create an environment that inspires you to maximize your personal and professional potential.
This relationship is designed to facilitate the creation/development of
personal, professional, or business goals and to develop and carry out a plan for achieving those goals.
This is delivered in a non-judgmental and supportive environment which in turn stimulates you to reflect, inquire, acknowledge, apply SMART goals, and ‘take action’ where applicable in your life.
My pledge to you
As your coach, I will be there to see you and to hear you for the person you truly want to be. I will hold up that mirror and guide you to where you want to go. With that being said, I am not in the driving seat - YOU are. You are the expert of your life, no one else.
What is your role in our coaching relationship?
As the Client, you are responsible for and in control of:
Setting the agenda and topic
How deep you want to dig
Identifying your goals
Implement the action steps agreed during the coaching session
Complete any additional tasks that have been agreed upon
Turning up to your appointments on time
Be as honest as you possibly can - this is a safe space
Breathe and enjoy this time - this is your time to be seen and heard
When having a coaching call please make sure you have as little disruption as possible (children/partner asking for your attention, pets needing let out, TV on in the background!!). You will get so much more out of our time together if you are in an environment where you feel comfortable and calm.
Honesty & Transparency
Even though I haven't officially been diagnosed with ADHD or dyslexia, I can say with some conviction that I do have a lot of these qualities.
Both of my sons have processing difficulties and share quite a few ADHD traits also. I know how frustrating it can be - for both sides.
I also see the whole person. I see the creativity, energy, great long-term memory, playful, honest, direct, passionate, kind, and the list goes on...
If you have been diagnosed with a learning difficulty or may suspect that this could be the case, then I encourage you to be open about it. This will enable me to really understand how I can support you better and for us to have a deeper discussion as to how you like to be coached, your preference for structure and communication, and so forth.
This is a safe space and it is time to see that how you are is a gift and together we can cater to your strengths and scaffold the challenges.
Blended Coaching Approach
Using the GROW model
What do you want?
What's your goal?
What's your current situation like? Where are you now?
What options and obstacles do you have?
What choices are you willing to make to hit your goal?
What is it?
The GROW coaching model was developed in the 1980s by business and performance coaches Sir John Whitmore, Graham Alexander, and Alan Fine.
One way to think about the GROW Model is to think about how you'd plan a vacation.
1 - Decide where you want to go (the goal)
2 - Where you currently are (your current reality)
3 - Explore various routes to your destination (the options)
4 - Research travel insurance in case of emergencies (obstacles)
5 - Pay for hotels and flights (will - way forward)
Focusing on problems tends to lead us to the past and trying to change what can’t be changed. Focusing on problems will encourage us to make excuses, blame others, and justify ourselves and our actions. This process can get complicated, dissuades us from taking stock of the situation and finding solutions that enable us to move forward.
Solution Focus coaching applies a positive approach toward change that laser focuses on what can be done. It promotes creativity, critical thinking, innovation, resourcefulness, and finding hidden strengths.
What I can't do
What I want to do
There's nothing else
I'm not there
I can't control it

What do I want?
What else is there?

What Coaching Is
The ICF (International Coaching Federation) defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.
The process of coaching often unlocks previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity, and leadership.
We all have goals we want to reach; challenges we’re striving to overcome and times when we feel stuck. Partnering with a
coach can change your life, setting you on a path to greater
personal and professional fulfillment.’
What Coaching Is NOT
Coach vs Mentor
A mentor typically works with developing coworkers and is
a trusted advisor who has an active interest in their development
and imparts their experiences to enable them to climb up the
Coach vs Therapist
Counselors and therapists are required to hold a master’s
degree or a Doctorate Degree and are trained to diagnose and
treat people with mental health issues such as violence,
substance abuse, chronic anxiety, and depression.
Coach vs Consultant
Consultants are usually subject matter experts in a specific area.
Rather than coaching you through what may be the best course
of action, consultants will generally perform the tasks or
manage projects on your behalf. Consultants are project-focused
as opposed to people-focused.
