I use a Dual Systems Approach to Coaching, which looks at both the psychological and practical aspects of your life. I mainly use the Cognitive Behavioural Coaching model, focussing on the Cognitive Triangle (above) and how our thoughts, feelings and actions/behaviour are connected. I also utilise some elements of Acceptance and Commitment coaching, resilience coaching and positive psychology.
I have supported women of all ages and backgrounds with a range of goals such as:
developing and increasing confidence in themselves;
understanding themselves better and feeling good physically and emotionally;
making time for themselves without feeling 'selfish';
finding their purpose in life - “regaining my spark”;
finding a meaningful job/career;
retraining or returning to study later in life.
Every woman I have coached, regardless of her background or goals, has said that she has felt supported and heard after coaching sessions with me. Each has told me that she discovered a different way to see and do things, and, most importantly, all say that they have hope for the future and feel empowered to continue their journey once the coaching sessions end.
How does it work?
I offer 1-1 or group coaching sessions, currently online only via platforms such as Zoom/Skype/Teams etc.
I offer blocks of 6 sessions lasting around 1 hour, with a follow-up phone call 1-2 months' after the final session.
The number, time/day and frequency of our sessions can be tailored to your needs, and agreement around this forms part of our discussion in the Initial Consultation.
What is the H.O.P.E coaching programme?
H.O.P.E (Holistic Optimism, Purpose, Empowerment) is a 6-week pilot programme, funded by the Allen Lane Foundation, of professional life / personal development coaching for women aged 35+ involved in the criminal justice system. Through tailored 1-1 cognitive behavioural coaching with an experienced criminal justice coach, participants will learn strategies to
manage their emotions, resulting in resilience when dealing with challenges in life;
realise their strengths, resulting in confidence in their own abilities; and
rebuild their self-esteem, resulting in belief in a better future for themselves and their families.
