WANT TO CHANGE THE STORY?
ARE THERE DIFFERENT TYPES OF COACHES & WHICH AM I?
I’m a certified life coach, having qualified in 1999. I was quite literally in the second wave of folk in the UK to train and qualify through what was then The British Coaching Academy, qualifying with a distinction.
Before that, I was attending Southampton University studying Psychodynamic Counselling when Life Coaching came to the UK. I jumped ship quicker than a seasick rat!
What sort of Life Coach am I? Yours potentially!
Let’s work together and I will give you 100% with the shameless expectancy that you will give the same.
To begin simply email or call to book a 30-minute introductory call.
This call can answer your questions regarding coaching and how I can help you, as well as giving me information on you and what you are looking for. This gives us an opportunity to see if we suit and fit.
If we do, we will discuss a starting date, payment options and pave a way forward in the frequency of calls or skyping.
YOU THROUGH MY FILTER
My filter is completely clear enabling me the space to see you and hear you afresh. From here I can help you understand yourself. We will look at you. How you want to be happier, healthier, stronger – whatever it is, whatever you want to achieve and, we’ll look at what’s preventing you from having it.
Experience and responsibility
IS LIFE COACHING RIGHT FOR ME?
And that’s a fair question. I am not going to persuade you to be coached, or even be coached by me. I do invite you to recognise what’s happening right now though, you are here reading this, a clear demonstration that there is something calling you. It may be a niggle, a curiosity but it’s a something.
Trialling the Introductory Call will certainly assist both of us in establishing whether Life Coaching or me providing it is right for you. As a semi-qualified counsellor, I will be able to spot if it’s counselling you need, and maybe we go so far as to help assess how you want to move forward with that. But I won’t counsel you. What’s the difference? In a nutshell…
- Counselling is from childhood to now, it’s behind you.
- Life Coaching is here and now, to where you want to be and how to get there.
WORK WITH ME
I warmly invite you to open the door. Be curious about yourself. You are indeed a worthy investment!
Dawn has been coaching me before I even knew what coaching was. As a therapist myself I know the value of an alternate frame within which to view the events of one’s life but am unable to have the objectivity to do that for myself. It needs a keen observer and wise intellect; both qualities Dawn possesses in great measure.
She has that rare gift of always being able to see the positive learning experience in anything. I am indebted to her for getting me out of severe depression at a low point in my life and for the ongoing support and care of a very dear friend.
I highly recommend her for her visionary approach to life and finding joy.
I have known Dawn for 15 years and she has coached me throughout this time. Dawn has helped me immeasurably grow from a young adult to a woman in my own power. Dawn has listened without judgement (you can tell her anything! You won’t ever shock her!) and helped me discover who I really am as I navigated through two short marriages and bereavement too. At these junctures Dawn has given me the tools to reflect and move effectively and with consciousness through these changes. All big life stuff! Knowing Dawn is there and has my back is amazing. She is a wise teacher and guide. I can’t thank her enough for all the work we have done on the journey so far and for her patience with me along the way.
JUSTIFYING THE COST OF INVESTMENT
Can you see where this is going?
This is a specific investment in you. Unlike cars, holidays and jollies, this is you demonstrating to yourself and life that you are ready and willing to make the changes you say you want to make.
It’s a put your money where your mouth is situation
The rest will unfold, but it must begin with YOU!
HOW MUCH ARE YOUR COACHING SESSIONS?
MINIMUM 3x SESSIONS
I heartily suggest an investment of 3 sessions to build up a rapport and to begin to mine in on what needs looking at. To give any work we do a chance, we need continuity to get new ideas, tools and perspectives grounded.
ONGOING SESSIONS TO BE DISCUSSED
Here we can discuss a more a long-term relationship and price or having had the minimum of 3 coaching sessions you may just want a top up here and there.
