What you can expect

Whether you are already familiar with Coaching and Hope Therapy, or are considering this for the first time, my aim is to make the experience as comfortable, effective and rewarding for you as possible.

 

During sessions we will explore areas of your life where you desire to see change and we will address blockages to this, planning a stepped programme of achievable actions for you to implement in order to move towards your goal. We will look back at your personal history and ahead to your hopes and dreams, and work holistically towards practical change and personal growth. To be effective, this process requires time and determination, but the benefits it will bring to your well-being will be worth it. 

 

You will be encouraged to take a few simple notes during coaching and be prepared for some practical tasks between sessions too - but don’t worry, it won’t be like school! My aim at all times is to encourage and empower you to be, and to become, your best and happiest self, and with this in mind, our interaction will be relaxed and hopefully fun too! Following sessions you will receive an email briefly outlining what we have covered during our time together and agreed actions to be taken.

All sessions are confidential and will last for up to one hour, scheduled weekly to maintain focus and momentum. Double sessions can be arranged if required. Sessions are booked in a block of three, which can be extended according to your particular requirements, or cancelled at any time, provided at least 24 hours’ notice is given. If you need help, further to that which I can offer, or I feel that coaching is not the most appropriate service for you at this time, I will signpost you on to other professionals where possible, and refund any sessions that you have paid for but not taken.

 

Coaching will be conducted by video conferencing or safely distanced face-to-face sessions where possible.

 

Sessions are to be paid for in advance. Concessions are available, so please ask if you feel this may apply to you. For those undertaking Creative-Coaching there will be an additional charge for materials. Please attend every session, but in the event of an unavoidable cancellation, please give as much notice as possible.

 

We begin with a free introductory telephone consultation, lasting up to 30 minutes, where we can discuss your hopes and aims for attending sessions, in order to clarify whether coaching will be the right-fit for you, and to help you decide if you would like to proceed.
