Coaching

What is coaching?

Coaching is a process of seeking, exploring and discovery. Often, it involves questioning, listening, spotting patterns, unpicking assumptions, challenging narratives that might not be serving you, and prioritising actions. It can help you uncover what might be holding you back on specific goals, or serve as a space to explore who you are and what you want. As a coach, I listen deeply and help people and organisations find clarity, courage and a path forward.

About you

 

I often work with creatives, or people who are connected in some way to positive social or environmental impact, or young leaders who want to develop their vision and voice. You might engage my support to...

  • explore your vision and clarify the goals you want to work toward

  • identify and develop your values, strengths and ideas

  • sit with uncertainty or find clarity in complexity

  • feel supported to act in the face of the climate crisis 

  • feel courage and confidence in your voice and way of being 

  • create change in some aspect of your life or work 

  • help create a just, inclusive, sustainable world

  • prioritise a regular writing practice 

 

I've worked in various contexts - from local authorities facing budget cuts and yet being asked to achieve net zero carbon emissions, to organisations seeking to create social and environmental value, to communities around the world wanting to clearly understand and use their strengths, and to individuals wanting to find their authentic voice. And as a writer, I'm keen to work with others who would like to develop their writing practice .

"Since starting coaching with you, I am feeling more confident and able to make decisions. Your coaching has enabled me to reflect on the way I carry myself at work and in life, and the ways in which I am able to successfully bring more of myself into the work sphere. I feel very listened to - thank you!." - Jenny T, Manager, InterHealth Worldwide

What kind of coach am I?

 

I draw on various tools in my coaching, and am resourceful, compassionate and intuitive. I've overcome challenging situations in my personal and professional life, and these experiences have strengthened my ability as a coach. I've trained in goal-based coaching (certified by the Association for Coaching), and transformational coaching (accredited by the International Coaching Federation), which involves going beneath the surface and looking at how clients see themselves, rather than just the actions they take. I have a certificate in group coaching & facilitation, and enjoy working with communities and organisations to unlock strengths, realise vision, and find common ground. I've also trained with Climate Change Coaches. When helpful, I can also offer advice and ideas by drawing on my experience in various contexts.

Coaching outdoors

 

​If you're based in the UK, we can take our coaching sessions outdoors (which takes your thinking outside of your usual four walls). This could be a walk in a park, or along a river or beach, or on Dartmoor or Exmoor. Please see my walking page for details. 

Prices: 

Many coaches charge a lot of money. I think everyone should be able to access coaching, and so I keep my prices low. My coaching package for individuals looks like this: 

Delivery: 

  • Initial 60 minute call to explore your aims and goals 

  • 6 x 60 minute coaching calls (roughly two per month - online, phone, or in-person)

  • Access via email between sessions, to check-in or share learning

  • Worksheets or 'homework' between sessions, where helpful

  • Signposting to helpful or inspiring resources

Cost: 

£300 upfront, or split over three monthly payments of £110 (10% off if paid upfront). Travel costs will be added on if in person (no travel costs if coaching is in-person near Exeter, or on Dartmoor). 

I can offer a free 20 minute call to explore what coaching might do for you. Get in touch for info.
