Change can be daunting, and particularly so when you decide to do something you haven't done before, in this case personal coaching for you or professional consultancy for your business. So here's how it all works.
Our initial contact is simply a brief, informal chat - nothing to worry about - it's just so that you can find out more about us and we can find out more about you and what you'd like to achieve within coaching or consultancy. If, after the chat, you feel that it's definitely right for you and we're the right place, we'll arrange our first session.
Within the session, we begin by looking in depth at your ideas or any issues, creating specific goals you want to achieve, and explore ways of working towards them, including any challenges you may encounter. At the end of the session, we create a plan of action, and book our next session if you would like or have booked a series. Oh and we always suggest bringing a notebook and pen as there's plenty of thoughts you may want to jot down!
In each of the following sessions, we begin by reviewing the progress you've made, and also discuss any areas within which you feel you haven't made as much progress as you would have liked. Again this process isn't anything to worry about, it just helps you understand the situation and, most importantly yourself that little bit more, and allows you to tweak aspects of your action plan moving forward. Reflection is an essential part of the process, and so the period in between sessions also provides an opportunity for you to note how you're feeling.
Finally, in our last session, we begin in a similar way but move on to review the process as a whole, looking at the goals you set at the beginning and along the way, and have now reached. We reflect on your new reality and how working towards or running your business feels, consider the obstacles you overcame throughout the process and the new skills you've developed as you did so. Finally, we consider what happens next, including any further goals you'd like to achieve, and of course we take a little time to really celebrate your incredible achievements.
