FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS COACHING?
Coaching is supporting individuals to achieve their vision and life goals. It is not telling people what to do; it is helping clients gain clarity over their lives and supporting greater autonomy. Coaches assist in identifying blocks and setting clear objectives to achieve these personal goals. I create the space and opportunity for growth with my clients.
WHAT IS INTEGRATIVE COACHING?
Great question. Integrative coaching is an approach to supporting clients that involves selecting techniques from different therapeutic orientations best suited to a client’s particular problem. By tailoring the coaching to the individual, integrative coaches hope to produce the most significant results. There is an excellent article from VeryWellMind which expands on it a little further. As always any questions please feel free to get in touch.
IS POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY COACHING BETTER THAN REGULAR COACHING?
Extensive research has been undertaken into the field of Positive Psychology and its impact on both societal and individual well-being. It is a very modern and progressive field with a robust evidence base which is constantly evolving. I personally believe it is the future of coaching and therefore invested heavily in my study. The qualifications and accreditation are among the highest achievable in Europe and I am very proud to be a practitioner in this field.
CAN I BOOK A FREE INTRO SESSION?
Yes. I offer a no-obligation 30-minute discovery call to prospective clients. Here we discuss key themes, objectives, ways of collaborating and ultimately see if we would be a good fit. This is an important phase of the relationship.
IS THERE ANYTHING I NEED TO PREPARE PRIOR TO MY SESSION?
Generally there is not much I will ask clients to prepare outside of our sessions as we do most of our work together. However, there may be occasions where it may be beneficial for a client to complete a small reflective task to maintain the flow of our journey. Ultimately, I want my clients to achieve the most for their investment.
All we ask is that our clients come ready and willing to participate in our sessions fully. If you truly have the desire and motivation for positive change to occur in your life - then we will get you to where you want to be.
WHAT ARE YOUR FEES?
Detailed information can be found on the 'Sessions & Fees' page or discussed further during our initial call.
DO YOU OFFER ANY CONCESSIONS FOR THOSE ON A LOW INCOME?
Yes. 25% of the practice is dedicated to affordable coaching. This includes schools, universities, public sector and low-income households. Please get in touch if you would like to know more information or to join our wait list.
WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL A SESSION?
Forty-eight hours notice is required for any cancellations unless there are exceptional circumstances. In this case we will aim to reschedule the session for a mutually convenient time. Cancellations within this time will be charged 50% of the full session fee.
DO YOU HAVE ANY COACHING QUALIFICATIONS?
Absolutely. As you may know, coaching is a hugely unregulated field. I spent over four years studying to be a Life Coach including an MSc in Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology. I take my professional development very seriously to ensure the best practices for my clients. I am fully qualified, accredited (EMCC) and insured to Life Coach with all qualifications listed on the homepage. Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
