Coaching

My Coaching is…

…empowering:

It’s about supporting you to develop skills, make your own decisions, overcome obstacles and take actions to create the life you want to lead.

…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.

…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 person, rather than focusing on specific issues in an isolated, mechanical way.

If you haven’t read the About page it might help you get a better idea about what you could get out of coaching.

Individual Coaching

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 individual coaching 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.

Group Coaching Program

After running several group programs I’ve discovered there’s something magical about the group process. Despite it being a more affordable option than individual coaching, the benefits of learning in a supportive community make it a highly effective alternative.

My group coaching program will lead you through the 8 steps to take back control from your illness to live a more relaxed, balanced and fulfilling life. In addition you get all the support of a group of people experiencing similar challenges!

Each program lasts 24 week to enable you to develop important new skills without feeling the pressure of time. Because of this I can only run this program once or twice a year and to make sure that you get the the full support that you need places will be restricted.

The next program will start at in the New Year but in the meantime you can get an idea of what it’s like to work with me in a group by joining one of my  FREE monthly workshops.

Check out my testimonial page to see what previous participants have to say about the program or read this post to find out what an ex GP thought about it.

Personal Retreats

For a large part of the year I live in the beautiful Poqueira Valley, in the mountains of Southern Spain. If you are well enough to be able to cope with a journey up windy mountain roads, and can manage to walk around steep mountain streets (even if only for a few minutes at a time), I’d love to share this beautiful place with you! Spend a few days enjoying this magical place whilst working intensively with me towards creating a life worthy of your dreams!

Pay What You Can Afford Coaching!

Each month I offer 1 x 4 pack of weekly coaching sessions on a pay what you can afford basis. This offer is for someone who knows that they can make a difference to their well-being with the right support, but just hasn’t been able to afford that support until now.

You will need to subscribe to my emails to receive this offer. Each month I send out an email with the following 2 question. This coaching pack is awarded to the first person to respond to that email with appropriate answers to the questions.

  1. What benefits do you believe you will achieve from working with me? What are the outcomes you are looking for?
  2. After considering how much those results would be worth to you how much can you afford to pay?
