    coaching blog - how do you prepare for a coaching session?
    What is preparation?  We ‘all’ in our busy lives tend to rush through the day, not always giving ourselves time to prepare thoroughly for a coaching session.  Which brings me into asking ‘you’ to think about how do you prepare? What do you actually do? I have found through experience the best way to prepare is to sit for ten...

    coaching blog - staying silent as a coach, silence is golden
    Coaching is a fantastic process for individuals to improve in any area of their life, both professionally and personally. I have found since mastering my coaching skills; staying silent can be an incredible experience. I genuinely love to see the change in individuals by asking the miracle question. When you coach and watch the coachee, you start to feel what...

    coaching blog - make mistakes, mistakes are important
    Making mistakes is such a massive part of life, and I believe they are not dealt with correctly from an early age. This then can create a fear of making mistakes; sadly, this then continues through life. Mistakes can form negative thoughts and beliefs that will play out in peoples personal and professional lives. Making mistakes can cause self-esteem and...

    coaching blog - what is coaching?
    Coaching is a conversation between a coach and a coachee whereby the coachee achieves a higher level and understanding of awareness and self-awareness, while the coach provides a safe environment and structure for that outcome to occur.  Yes, this sounds a bit of a mouthful, but in essence, it is a process that enables learning and development to occur and...

    coaching blog - when  we  encounter  adversity
    I so often hear in my coaching sessions in the language from the coachee sat in front of me that they are struggling with adversity. What do I mean? When we all encounter adversity, we react by thinking about it.  These thoughts then rapidly congeal into beliefs. These beliefs then have consequences – they are direct causes of what we feel and...

    coaching blog - coaching, why it continues to grow?
    I still like Timothy Gallwey's statement on performance coaching. He said the worst opponent is in your head, this is so true. The most critical person about your performance will be you, and most of it will be self-created by your inner voice, the voice that only you hear and only you listen to. Coaching provides techniques to take away...

    coaching blog - always feedback what you think you have heard
    When a coachee presents the area they would like to work on with you, it is essential you feedback on what you think you have heard. You may think you have heard the area the coachee wants to work on, but unless you share this, you usually won’t know for sure. This becomes the contract between you and your coachee...

    coaching blog - it is all data in the room
    When coaching the key is to notice what is happening in yourself and the coachee. Everything you feel in the room is data, instinct. Always think what is missing, what am I not saying, what is the coachee not saying? then think about sharing this. Sometimes it is about taking a risk, but it is how you get it across...

    coaching blog - why waste energy on something negative?
    When something bothers us, or we get anxious about something, we waste an awful amount of energy focused on this. What a waste of time-wasting energy or worrying about a mistake. The focus can be unbalanced, and generally, people are focused on the negative aspects of their life and not the positive. Negativity works 100% of the time, so why...
