What is my coaching like?

It’s empowering

It’s about supporting you to develop skills, make your own decisions, overcome obstacles and take actions to create a life that you’ll love.

It’s empathic

It draws on my experience of overcoming chronic illness. I understand what it’s like to live with one and I also understand how small steps can lead to great things. But most of all I understand that you are a unique individual and how important it is to see the world through your eyes.

It’s holistic

I understand that our physical, emotional and spiritual well-being are all interconnected. Lasting change is best achieved by understanding you as a whole being.

Check out my About page for more about me and who I work with.

Individual or Group Coaching?

I offer both individual coaching and coaching in groups. My group coaching can be extremely effective for learning how to manage your illness better and for keeping yourself on track. It can be particularly rewarding if you’re feeling isolated as a result of chronic illness.

Individual coaching will be the best choice if you find yourself getting frustrated that no matter how much you want to, you just don’t seem to be able to make the changes that you know could support your well-being. With my high level of counselling training and extensive experience, I am a great choice for someone looking for something a little deeper than standard coaching. I have helped many clients overcome difficulties with self-care that stem from previous trauma. I’m a coach now though, because my passion isn’t just to help you overcome your pain, I’ll also be supporting you to create a life that you love!

Individual Coaching Practicalities:

My one to one coaching is a premium service. In order to manage my own illness effectively I am only able to offer it to a limited number of people. I work on Skype* offering 30 or 45 minute sessions with email follow up. For most people it’s difficult to achieve lasting change with only one or two sessions so I prefer to offer packages. Most people benefit from weekly coaching to start with, perhaps becoming less frequent after a month or two. Most of my packages are flexible. For example if you buy a 6 session package you might choose to have 6 consecutive weekly sessions or you might prefer 3 weekly sessions followed by 3 at fortnightly intervals. They can be adapted to fit your needs.

Before deciding on whether individual or group coaching will suit you best, it’s important to schedule an initial strategy session. It will help you become clearer about what coaching could do for you and whether we are a good fit. I’m presently offering initial strategy sessions at HALF  the normal price of a coaching session. You can check out my schedule and book an appointment HERE.
