What is Coaching?

Coaching is a process that helps an individual work through the answers to the question or issue at hand. The role of the coach is not to provide the answers, but to help the individual to think the topic through, identify the options and then work these through; prior to identifying for themselves the way forward and the actions required. It can help enhance confidence, provide development and gives a safe place to think the topic through to conclusion.

As experienced Coaches, we are passionate about supporting individuals and organisations achieve their full potential. We have seen, and personally experienced, the positive impact that coaching can have for individuals, teams and businesses.

We have worked with individuals and teams at all levels, in different specialisms and on a cross sector basis.

We will work closely with you (as the coachee) on a confidential basis, to look at how coaching can support you both personally and professionally.

It may be that you are moving into a new role, returning to work, changing your career and/or needing to think through specific challenges or issues. We will work together, building a relationship based on trust, to proactively identify the next steps and actions that work for you.

Our coaches have a wide variety of backgrounds and experience; you have the opportunity to choose who you would like to work with and meet them prior to committing to work with them.

Our coaches have worked as an advisors to CEOs, Boards and senior leaders in global organisations; we enjoy coaching individuals and teams at all levels of seniority and experience.

We also have personal experience of leading and working with teams at country, divisional and global level during periods of Transformation and Change; coaching is integral to our personal ethos and approach.


There are occasions when it is useful to have a team coaching event to bring people together; this might be due to for example roles changing, the team or business having a new leader or direction, a project that need specific focus, new members of the team to be integrated or relationships to that need enhancing. 

Individual attendees can have individual coaching sessions first, with the option to include psychometrics; these are all then brought together as a team profile and event. 

Or a team coaching event can take place without the individual sessions taking place. These can be stand along events, or they can be integrated into wider occasions, such as team business offsites etc.

These events are tailored to your needs.


Conflict Coaching

During our lifetime it is inevitable that we will experience conflict and how we deal with that conflict can have an impact on our personal and private lives. Sometimes it is necessary to understand why we feel the way we do to be able to move on and conflict coaching can help with this.

Our coaches can assist individuals cope with any adverse impact from a conflict situation, such as lack of resilience, ongoing unresolved emotions, and issues and/or relationship dynamics. It helps promote real learning and self-reflection, embed learning, help to sustain changes in behaviour, enable individuals to better understand different people styles, build individual’s confidence in adapting styles and engaging in difficult conversations and reconcile specific situations by improving understanding and enabling individuals to move forward more positively. It can also be effectively integrated with mediation

Life Coaching

What is life coaching?

The pandemic has resulted in many of us rethinking what is important and how we want to live our lives going forward. We all have a greater sense of living our lives to the full whilst we can; are much clearer on who we want to spend time with, want to stay connected to family & friends, and are no longer prepared to work the way we were.

Life coaching can help you work through all this to create an individual plan. A qualified coach supports you with identifying your personal and/or professional goals. Whilst these can vary hugely, it’s all about helping you achieve your full potential in life, getting the balance you want and ensuring you focus on what you really want to achieve.

Interestingly coaching isn’t just for individuals, it can also include working with couples, families and business partners; where individual’s firstly think through what’s important to them; then people come together to work through their individual plans to create a shared life plan.

Some of our coaches are also qualified mediators, so the coaching can also include mediation if needed when there are differences in opinion, and to help agree priorities.

Life Coaching is recommended for those that:

• Know that something needs to change in their life, but they are not sure quite what or how to achieve it.
• Want clear goals and objectives; personally and professionally
• Have a clear goal that they want to achieve, but need support staying committed and on track.

Ironically it is usually our own self-limiting beliefs that hold us back; we just need some coaching to help nudge us along the path to achieve greater self-fulfilment.

The best athletes and teams in the world have coaches to help them maximise their potential; their coaching focuses on the whole person, recognising that you can’t just focus on one aspect of your life as they all influence each other.

Effective Life Coaching supports people take their life to the next level – whatever that might be is a personal journey and that’s half the fun, discovering what that journey is going to be and literally watching it come to together…
