What is Coaching?
Coaching is different from counselling or therapy sessions. Coaching provides support to help you work towards a particular aim or goal, which could be either at home or in the workplace. A coach can provide you with a safe place to discuss any fears or concerns which may be holding you back and can give you the support and confidence you need to overcome them.
What can it help with?
We feel passionately about people and the value that coaching can add to helping you reach your potential. We know first-hand how your complex work-based and private needs, ambitions and desires can impact your everyday life.
Together with you, we will focus on finding the most appropriate solutions to the issues you face. Solutions that are right for you.
How is it delivered?
We offer a professional specialist service, both independent and separate from your everyday life. All sessions are 1:1, either face to face or via zoom and skype.
What to expect during your Coaching sessions
During your sessions, your coach will work with you to identify your aim or goal, and any blocks which are standing in your way. Sessions then focusing on your progress, understanding how to overcome the blocks and increasing your confidence levels.
As all of our coaches are trained mental health counsellors, they can bring in techniques from other types of therapy such as mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and counselling as required, to enhance your sessions and improve your outcome.

The Mindfulness Based Self Compassion Programme is proving to be an emotional journey for me, much more than I ever imagined it would be, but being able to openly look at and discuss these emotions means that I am learning so much from Ian and from the other members of the group. I take great comfort from that.
Great Mindfulness Programme
This programme was more relevant to me than I actually realised. Leaning to show myself compassion hasn’t been easy, but this course has started me on a journey, one that I intend to continue. It was wonderful listening to others on a similar journey to me.
Wonderful Mindfulness Course
The contents of the MBSC programme are extremely relevant, and testament to the depth of research that its based on. It has helped me a great deal as a result, and I would recommend this course to anyone looking to improve their mental health in this way.
